Hello, about two months ago I went from my platinum blonde hair to wanting to go back to my natural ash blonde hair. I went to Sally’s beauty salon in Canada and they told me wrong information; I added an ash brown colour straight to my hair and it turned green. Then I went back for correction advice (bad idea) and they told me to add a dark red brown to tone out the green. My mom put a bit too much of the dye on my hair, and it went way too red and became more damaged. I then went to my old high school’s hair salon, and they added an ash tone to my hair to hide the red. All of these processes happened within a week, and I am upset with myself that I didn’t space it out more as my hair became dry and weaker. I have thin fine hair. Now it is two months later, and in inside lighting my hair looks the ashy tone, but outside it is a horrible orange/red auburn colour in the sun and I absolutely hate it. I have so many regrets. Now I am torn between the decision to either dye it a darker brown, or try and get back to my ash blonde or close enough to it, with minimal damage. I dread the idea of having to bleach it, although I feel it wouldn’t be too bad if it was stretched out into multiple processes and conditioned thoroughly. I just desperately want this auburn colour gone and an ashy colour as my skin tone is cool, not warm. I really hope you can help me with some advice. It seems the only thing that would gain my full confidence back is a time machine, which is obviously impossible at this time. My mental health has been greatly affected and I just dream of being happy again with myself.
Thank you for your time.

I am so sorry for you, but all is not lost. ...More >
Firstly invest in the best shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and spray leave in protein conditioner. You will need to have a strict hair care regime of using the treatment mask every time you shampoo for 1 month - leave it for 20 mins and cover with a shower cap. Use the conditioner and comb it through before rinsing. The leave in conditioner is also essential as it strengthens the hair and helps even out the porosity so you will get a more even colour result.
Then using something like baby shampoo or washing up liquid wash your hair leave the solution on your hair for 5 mins rinse and repeat. This again will strip out colour and residue but with soap rather than bleach.
Dry your hair off then apply an ash blonde that is 1 or 2 shades lighter than your desired result apply to the root area first the spray the protein spray onto the rest of your hair. After 15 mins add 10mls of the protein spray to the left over colour mixture and apply to the rest of your hair. Process for 15 mins. After shampooing and using the treatment etc with luck you should have an even ash blonde result. You can always invest in corrective colour conditioner in violet or silver use this and leave for 5 mins if you still have unwanted warm tones. You can replace the normal conditioner with the coloured one.
If you choose to go brown instead you do the same as above with an ash brown.
Good luck and I hope your feeling confident again soon x x

I home dyed my hair with John Frieda blonde permanent hair dye and now I want to go back to my original darker blonde. How can I do this and what should I use?
|Answered By: |
Hi M You can use John Freida colour again of the colour nearest to your natural one and apply directly over the top of the blonde. Use a protein porosity equalizer beforehand to help the colour last and use coloured conditioner as it may fade a bit with the first application. Good luck x

My hair is kinda messed up ombre gone wrong, with red, and yellow...And that’s something that I hate the most! Now I’m thinking how to fix it, I want to get something between cold ash brown and hair from Ariana Grande’s video ’Dangerous Woman’. How to get colour like that, but make it lasting, I just want to leave my hair alone from dyeing! I was thinking about FLAMBOYAGE, but is that really going to make my hair cold
coloured and do it for good? HELP!

I think you should see a stylist for this if you want it to be correct and last. Arianna’s hair is a warm brown with beige blonde ends and looks ombre ish to me. So I think that a cool brown could be applied to your roots, mid lengths and ends and the red you currently have will warm it up, then a blend technique using protein conditioner with an ash blonde on the ends should do it. Maintain yourself with colour save shampoo and conditioner and you should love it. ...More >
