I dyed my hair red a couple weeks ago (mistake...). I was a medium brunette before going red and I wanted to take out the red so I used color oops. Now my hair is brown, slightly orangy/brassy, and the roots are lighter than the rest of my hair.
My question is...How do I fix this brassy tone and how do I make my roots blend in?
I've read that those who use color oops should redye their hair with a shade that is 2 or 3 shades lighter than the shade they actually want since the hair is more porous and will grab onto more color. If I choose a lighter shade, will it lift my roots lighter than my hair??
I just want the medium-light brown hair without the red tint on my roots.
I just experienced this myself.
I am naturally a dirty blonde. Have colored my hair for over ten years and had come to a point with dark brown hair with hot burgandy red roots. Not pretty! I used color remover first and then the toner, T-14 level. I am now a mouse brown with the red gone! I myself am wondering if its okay to use a high lift blonde with a neutral protein filler to lighten it to be blonde again?
