Fixing Hair Coloring Mishaps

Box hair coloring kits are sometimes magic but sometimes, they are also nightmares! There are plenty of things that could go wrong if you do your own hair. It couldd come out too dark or too brassy. How do you actually fix these issues? Keep reading to find out!

Too Dark

Dark box hair dyes could either make you end up looking like Megan Fox or just a Megan with hair-color-gone-wrong. However, you shouldn’t fear that darkness because it can be faded to look more natural. All you need is some shampoo and a little bit of elbow grease.

The moment you find out that your hair ended up being too dark, rinse your hair immediately with some clarifying shampoo or maybe some good old anti-dandruff shampoo. This will help to strip some of the color away. Just don’t forget to deep condition your hair afterward to replace the natural oils you’ve also stripped from your hair. After about two or three washes, unwanted tones will be removed. But if you really need the color to fade faster, here’s a secret: dish soap! Just mix it with your usual shampoo.

Brassy Color

If you want to try out funky hair colors but you have dark hair, you’ll need to lighten it first. However, without the right materials, your hair could end up looking brassy instead of looking funky. Brassy hair color just doesn’t look right. But this can be easily remedied. If you have purple shampoo, this should do the trick! Purple or able helps to neutralize the brassiness. After using it, your hair will be ready to be layered with maybe yellows, pink, green, or blue colors!

To avoid this mishap, you have to make sure that you use ashy colors instead of bleaching your hair.
