Hair Colouring Problem !


Gel Junkie
Good morning all !

Teeny bit of a hair disaster.

I have dark brown hair (chestnutty brown) had a few white hairs mingled in:irked: so decided to colour it ( oh the joy of being 35)

Anyway, i'm away with the girls for the weekend partying.....and died it with a clarol nice & easy 24 wash 'dark warm brown'. I think i may have left it on too long whilst...doing toes..packing.....etc etc

It's gone black:eek:i look like bloomin MORTICIA:cry:

Help.....this is not a good look !

I am at the hair dressers this morning - can i.....or would able to do anything about this or have i got to wait for it to fade?

Thankyou peeps

You could try washing it with Head & Shoulders. May lift out some of it, with frequent washing mind! but youll probably end up needing professional advice from a salon they may use a bleach wash to lighten it.

A bleach wash or persulfate shampoo will do the trick, I'm sure your hairdresser will get you sorted out!!

How is your hair now? Did you go and get it fixed? Or has it lightened any from washing?
