hi hon how did u strip it? i know with some of the colour removers if there hasnt been sufficient rinsing and colour particals are left behind they can re-oxidise and the colour returns to the dark shade you were trying to remove? xxx

Only thing I can think of is you didn't get all the bleach molecules out and stop creeping oxidisation hense going dark, if you drop some mixed colour into a pot if bleach you will see what I mean x

It's to do with the porosity. The 6.62 (we are talking about l'Oreal I assume?) has blue pigments. On severely compromised hair, these can shoot down dark.

You should have used a .4 or .44 to get a coppery 6

Please disregard the advice to do a head of foils( more bleach?) and a semi will just make it darker.

appologies - i thought the semi (albeit in a different shade which i should have stated) would hold better and hilites only if the hair was up to it after testing. my bad
