Unhappy I Messed Up My Hair - July 20th 2009, 01:57 AM

Soooo... I think I messed up my hair.

Umm... I have this weird colored brown in my hair now, and the rest is black... I want to somehow go back to my natural brown so I want the black to fade... Now I don't know what to do. I bought a soft black on standby for my hair just in case I messed it up... Should I just go black again... What's it going to look like when It grows out? Really nasty? I'm confused.

Did I mess up my hair, how do I fix it?

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

I think time can heal this one, Or you can always go back to your original colour for abit and then try again. Im not a girl on this one and havnt got experience in hair colour, but it doesnt look that bad so your ok :P

The contrast in that picture is too high, you need to tone it down

There's many different ways you can get colour to fade. Washing daily with dandruff or other strong shampoos, using hot water to wash, using heat to style, being out in the sun, I've heard that lemon juice can also lighten your hair but that may dry it out tiny bit. The black is going to fade out greyish though so unless you want to redye it black and keep the color, you might want to keep a warm brown dye handy for when it's faded enough to dye over.

I've also heard positive things about a product called Color Oops. It's said to remove all dye from your hair without horribly damaging it like stripping the color and redying would. I'm not aware of a place to buy it from in person, but I knwo you can buy it online for less than $15 [if I remember correctly].

Every time I try to give up, a little voice called hope says "one more try"
