Please advise... I usually home colour my hair every six weeks or so, all good except for last couple months have gone a shade darker as my hair looked brassy but did it yesterday and it's so bloody dark ! I have just gone and got another one shade lighter to pop on but am wondering if it will react as have washed hair three times since .. what do you think ?
If it's just that it's too dark I'd hold fire; a lot of the time hair dyes lighten considerably over the first few washes. I'm dyed red, have been for years and even though I now don't need to dye that regularly my fresh dye colour is very different from the true colour it turns in to.
Google on YouTube bicarbonate of soda and vitamin c eff tablets - mixed together and left on for 15 minutes then shampoo out with regular head and shoulders - works a treat every time - has happened to me a lot!
