Dyed my hair too dark. Any solutions please/

Discussion in 'Personal' started by dinx67, Mar 5, 2012.

  1. I believe that the 'Jobazz' hair colour remover is very effective and not terribly expensive. It does strip the colour out but is supposed to leave it in good condition. I've seen it on sale in B&M bargains and on ideal world tv website (around a tenner).
    Alternatively, people always used to say that chlorine dulled new hair dye so you could try a dip at your local baths!

    How about some highlights? My sweetheart used to ask me to do hers and complained I put too many in and made her hair too light.

    Hydrogen peroxide (quid or so, chemist),mixed in with your normal shapoo, wash ad nauseum, and it does radually life the colour, after a few washes. I have to admit i did give up with the shampoo and used it neat in the end, but it did work in one evening.
    Tip received from my sister-in-law hairdresser, and it worked when I used that wful qo minute dye stuff that should hae been dark brown and ended up black. Neer realised how much difference there is between these two shades! Good luck.

    My hairdresser told me Fairy Liquid was the least harsh way of doing it if you just want it a bit lighter.
    I've bought a colour remover before and it worked but my hair wasn't in the best condition afterwards. x

    Bite the financial bullet, go to a hairdresser and get it sorted out there. This advice, I assure you, was learnt the hard way and definitely not the first time!
    There isn't strong enough peroxide in shop colours to really strip a too dark one, and the result will be patchy between the roots and the ends. The condition will be much better and the colour more even from a hairdresser.

    A solution of brown boot polish and white spirit applied to the face?

    Any silicone based hair shampoos/serums like Panthene pro V will strip colour out - & gentle on your hair too. Worked for me. x

  11. My favourite solution so far...
  12. Fairy liquid it is then. I will keep you posted on the results!!
  13. Fantastic result. Lighter shade definately.
    Thank you to the posters who suggested it.
    Fairy liquid to lighten hair - who knew
    Added bonus of a nice clean bath now too!
