So, I recently dyed my hair and it went a little darker than intended. Didn't mind the colour at first but now I really hate it. I'm wary of trying to lighten it with another dye before removing this one.

Any decent brands that won't completely destroy my hair?

Scott cornwall. Decolour Remover. £12.99 in Boots.

I used Colour B4 colour stripper. It was very effective, but the smell lingered for weeks. I had to slather on a load of extra conditioner as it made my hair feel 'crispy', but it doesn't seem to have been ruined by it.

I used the colour b4 stuff and it made me go bright orange! Definitely don't use it if your darker colour has any red in it as I think this is why I went orange.

No mine is brown (with a hint of khaki where I went over some residual blonde blush)

The Decolour Remover you will have to wait at least a week to recolour. With the stripper you can recolour immediately. I've used both on my hair. Use the Scott Cornwall one much kinder to the hair and no horrible smell.

Ah thats useful to know, I will probably need a week to select the right colour so I don't mess up again grin

Popping back to say that the scott cornwall stuff worked a treat. There was an alarming hour of crayola yellow/orange but remedied with a dark blonde toner thing. Great productsmile

The Scott Cornwall one really does the job but the smell!!!! Oh my God, my hair reeked of rotten eggs for weeks

You could try the Vitamin C hair dye removal method, google it to find out how to do it, I've done several times and found it quite effective. All you need is a tube of effervescent vitamin c tablets and some clarifying or ant-dandruff shampoo. Basically you crush the tablets into a fine powder, mix with the shampoo, rub into damp hair, wrap in cling film and wait 1-2 hours and wash out & condition, any hair colour should be gone!

I've used Fairy Liquid in a pinch.
