Good tip Jane! Thank you!
I'm actually almost out of shampoo, so on Thursday will
get hubby to pick me up some of that Head & Shoulders!
Even a little lighter will help I'm sure.

Aww, I'll bet it looks great, but the change would definitely take some getting used to. I've also heard of the Head and Shoulders trick to help lighten your hair a bit.

I'm a blonde as well - I keep tossing around the idea of dying it brown for a while now. I'm still really tempted!

Aw you can't post this and not have pics. =P Someone should make a thread of just 'embarassing hair colors or styles' and enough of us can join in that you won't feel left out!! =D

Nicole, if you can pull it off, go for it, but beware a new hair color might come with this side effect ~~~

lol


And Kat, I don't even want to look at myself, I don't want anyone else to see me, haha.

I did this at the start of the year too! I have been blonde my whole life but for some reason I wanted a change so I went dark at the hairdresser but unfortunately they used permanent dye and made me too dark! I hated it and have been getting highlights every 2 months since and I'm almost back to my old blonde now.

If yours isn't permanent use dish soap to wash it every day for a week and that will make a big improvement.

Good luck and keep us posted.

If you really don't like it, there are loads of ways of getting rid of it. While it is still fresh you can remove it with a colour remover such as colour B4 or Jo Bazz. (Assuming you used a dye that contained peroxide/developer.) These are not peroxide based, and don't damage your hair. Chances are you would only have to use it once to get back to blonde. It will be brassier than it was, but you can then tone it.
If you want to stick with brown but a lighter shade, vitamin C is the best thing for fading colour, this also works well on direct dyes (AKA semis, dyes that you don't mix with developer.) Mix vitamin C powder with shampoo (Head and Shoulders or a clarifying shampoo ideally) apply to dry hair, cover with a shower cap or plastic bag, and apply heat from a hair dryer. Wait at least 45 minutes then rinse with hot water. Smother in conditioner, cover again, add heat and leave for 30 minutes minimum. After rinsing your hair should be a lot lighter, without compromising the condition. You can use vitamin C masks several times a week.
If all else fails you can do a bleach bath, much less damaging than actually bleaching, but I would try the above methods first.
