well my mom dyed my hair yesterday, it came out BLACK! Not the color on the box! i hate it! it looks horrible. i cant afford to go to a salon to get it fix. how long do you think i should have to wait to lighten it? i plan to use a special dye that lightens dark hair. My hair was a medium to dark brown with slight light brown highlights and now its just horrid! i loved my hair but i wanted a change and now i hate it. i cant stand to look at it.... i want to get it changed before thanksgiving so no one will see it

I'm sorry about your hair! I've done that a couple of times and wanted to wear a bag over my head.. luckily they were both lighter shades that could be somewhat covered by another dye but dark mistakes are a little harder. I googled and found some stuff for you, the only thing I can think is to wash your hair a bunch of times to try and fade the color.. even my "permanent" color fades after so many washings. Anyway I hope these links help! Basically they say a color remover from the drugstore and beauty supply shop.

Ditto what Katie said about washing a bunch of times. Back when I used to color my hair, I used to get irritated because the so called permanent colors would fade, usually quite a bit! Of course that was years ago and maybe they don't quite as bad now... I don't know. You have nearly a week until T-day and a shampoo a day should be ample to fade it out. Use plenty of conditioner too!! :D

Yes, like Poppy said, just wait a bit and it should fade! The colour I have in now was totally black when I first dyed it, but a week or two later it was a lovely dark brown, and now (about 3 weeks later) it's showing crazy hints of red in the light xD

Im so happy.......:rolleyes: im not dying my hair for a while

Just remember to extra condition your hair or use a deep conditioning treatment so your hair doesn't suffer color damage (dryness) I personally use silk therapy on my hair twice a week started several years ago when I used to color my hair my beautician at the time recommended it and now I just continue to use it cause of my hair being so thick and everyday heat styling the silk therapy has done miracles for my hair. You would never know how much heat damage my hair suffers cause it is silky soft and shiny all the time. If you can't find that just a deep conditioning treatment or extra conditioning will help too.
