Hair color....and tip on how to lighten it if it comes out too dark!

I've gotten so many questions on my new hair color and a lot of you wanted to know which color I used.
I used L'Oreal Healthy Look 28 Day Color in Darkest Brown Espresso.

When I first colored I thought I made the biggest mistake. It was almost black and it was a shock to my face. Lili (@LMissObsessive http://www.littlemissobsessive.com/ ) is a hairstylist and told me to run out and get Pert shampoo right away (if you don't have Pert in your country Head and Shoulders or a stronger shampoo with detergent will do). It's best to do this within the first 24 hours. She told me to wash my hair 3-5 times for 5 minutes at a time scrubbing really good and the color should lift a bit. Deep condition GOOD afterwards. My hair has lightened up and I'm more comfortable with it now that it's not so dark.

So, if you have a hair blunder like I did and it comes out too dark.... get to washing! :)

You should have known better. The model on the bottle has black hair. Using dish detergent helps lighten as well.

I love the Loreal semis to turn my hair from a light blonde to a darker blonde. However, they always turn out way darker than on the box. When it comes to home hair dyes, I think the best advice is to always go at least one shader lighter than the color you want to achieve.

Love your blog!

that happened to me too with a L'Oreal 10 minute dye that was called golden brown and turned out black :(

Another thing that can lighten hair is Vitamin C tablets. You just grind them up, mix them with Pert Plus, Head and Shoulders or a clarifying shampoo, and then slather it on your hair. Let it sit for up to 30 minutes and it will fade it to some extent. I dyed my hair almost black a few months ago and it was awful. I did a ton of research and found this method, and it works!

For what it's worth, however, I think your hair looks lovely either way. :)

glad you figured out something that worked for you! I do like the dark color as well thought! I used a hair color remover kit once when I tried to dye my blonde hair darker and it turned green! so i know the panic that sets in when its not what you want it to be!

Your hair looks great! I'm new to ur blog and I also like the highlights that you had earlier. I want to go a lil lighter for summer but every time I go to the salon it never turns out the way I want. It always looks streaky and un-natural. Did u go to the salon to get the highlights?

i always get home hair care kits wrong! last time for some reason my hair didnt change colour lol xxxx

Another way to get some of the hair dye out of your hair is to mix the detergent shampoo (I usually use an anti-dandruff shampoo) with bicarbonate soda and leave it in your hair for 5 - 10 minutes. I once dyed my hair way too dark and I did the above a three times a day for two days and the color faded significantly.

The same thing happened to me! I should have known better not to lighten black hair. A few washes later, my roots were black and the rest of my hair was caramel/orange-y. Ugh, not a good look. I really like the new color though!

tinyham said...

I thought the hair color looked great dark. Can you post pics so we can see how it's lightened up? Thanks!

Glad it worked for you and you're feeling more comfortable with your shade now. I thought you looked good with the darker colour as well.
