Hello, I have naturally very black curly hair and Iím wanting to dye it a little bit lighter for the summer, so I was thinking maybe a dark brown nothing to drastic. I want to dye it at home because I donít want to go to a salon to dye it. I want a dark ashy brown colour and want to stay away from my hair turning out brown with a reddish tone. Months ago I had purchased a blonde hair dye to dye my black hair but unfortunately nothing happened. What type of dye should I be buying for my hair to actually turn the ashy dark brown colour I want. Thank you!

Hi Maria, Unfortunately itís not that simple. Artificial colour wonít lift artificial colour, so you need to use a decolorant or have a bleach bath. These will be able to lift the black enough so that you can then use a semi brown of your choice and maintain with a colour conditioner.
Hope this is helpful

My hair is naturally light brown. Over the course of 4 years, I have both bleached it, and dyed it. The colour of my hair right now is black, but I also have significant brown roots. This week I decided to use íColour Oops Developlus Colour Oops Colour Removerí to completely remove the black hair dye out of my hair, but it didnít quite work. So my question is, what should I do from this point on? I have an event coming up in two weeks, and I really want to refresh my hair. Iím interested in silver/grey/ashy highlights, or something else to lighten and liven up my hair. Please help! Thank you!!

Hi Sara, You probably have a warm brownish colour, so the options are Ė A dark blonde or light brown semi all over to even up the overall look, de- colour again so you get a lighter base and then use a lighter maybe brighter semi with a red undertone. Or have a full head of highlights to tone and blend? Lots of fun options, good luck.

So my mum dyes my hair for school and one week from school (which is today, Aug.15) she thought it would be a great idea to put a perm in my hair... so I let her try it. By the way, before this happened my hair was about the length of where a bra strap would go. Okay anyways, she does the perm but forgets to add some type of thing jn at the beginning and when we get done and start taking out the perm rods, there were no curls. So I waited for it to dry but when I started brushing it, HUGE clumps of hair keeps coming out. Now it just looks like I stuck my hair in acid. The only option my mum knows is to cut it to my shoulders. I really donít want to...Help

Wow Sarah, so if I was you I would immediately use a clarifying shampoo leaving on for 5 minutes before rinsing and repeating. This will remove chemical that may still be in your hair. Have a good trim and invest in some professional shampoo and conditioner thatís for chemically damaged hair. Leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes and comb through gently before rinsing. If you can get a treatment mask also for chemically damaged hair, you use this after shampooing but before conditioning there is no need to comb through as masks work internally to repair the hair. Be gentle with your hair and if you use heat to style make sure the tool has a temperature control and work around 150 c if possible to prevent heat damage. Have regular trims and Iím sure in a couple of months you will be happy with your hair again.
