Bad bad hair dye disaster.

I've been dying my hair myself for about ten years. For whatever reason yesterday I decided to go a shade lighter and use some highlighter brush thing.

It's hideous. Very brassy blonde in places with spotty patches of very light, and big stripes of brown. I know it's my own fault for not giving it 100% of my attention.

So what can I do to rectify it? I can go out at lunchtime (still in work today) and buy either an anti-coalgation (I think that's what it's called) shampoo, or I can buy some hair striper stuff.
Which would be best, or is there another option?

What colour is your hair.
When my DD ruined her hair by home dying it blonde, I just went and got her natural hair colour and put that on.
It fixed it quite well actually.
Can you dye it brown for now?

I agree with hellsbells.

Put a brown over it. And pay attention in future wink
