Help! i dyed my hair blond and its come out bright orange!?

My natural hair colour is strawberry blond and about 2 years ago i died my hair purple and have been ever since. I tried to get my hair dyed to a colour close to my natural colour as i have university interviews coming up.



BUT



I pre lightend it which turned my hair bright orange and without thinking put on a golden blonde so now my hair is bright ginger!!!



i cannont afford to go the hair dressers and its sunday tomorrow anyway they wont be open.



I heard dying it ash blond can cancle out the orange tone as it has a green blue base but im scared of my hair having a greenish/bluish/greyish tint to it as i heard this can happen



what should i do and how should i approach this i need it sorted tomorrow!



p.s. would a natural ash blonde or a medium brown turn out better?

i would try dying your hair a darker color, like a medium or dark brown. that should cover the orange. if you go lighter, that will just make the color look worse! than later on, if you want, put a lot of blonde highlights in.

the only way you can make such a drastic change would to be take the dye out. do a hot oil treatment ( 2 parts canola oil to 1 part water) heat and put inyour hair let sit for like 15 minutes. then wash your hair like 3 times with dandruff shamppo or regular shampoo works fine. it should bring your hair back to a natural color

i agree with samantha, the only thing is i would wait a little bit so you don't really damage your hair

Go with the brown definitely

use either a toner



or a purple shampoo

don't do anything you don't want to damage your hair just wait for the dye to come off

Hey, whatever you do, don't put any more bleach in it for a looong time! Many home-dyers have made this mistake!



In the short time frame you have, I would find a chocolate or light ash brown color, make sure you don't use any thing that has red or copper tones, and put that through. don't take it out too soon or too late, as too soon will not cover the ginger, and too late will damage your hair further. An ash blonde will help but not enough to make it look natural. Also, don't go for anything too terribly dark (deffinately not black!). A semi-permanent, such as a 6 wash, will fade nicely to a natural-ish shade much better than a permanent.



Try covering the dye in your hair with platic wrap or a plastic bag, I've found when re-dying that this can intensify the color enough to cover mistakes!



Finally, get yourself a leave in conditioning treatment. Your hair will be dried out and damaged by the peroxide and bleaching agents and will desperately need some special treatment, more than what you get in the conditioner that comes with a home-dye kit.



If all that doesn't work, a hat will!



Hope that helps!
