I made a big mistake!!!

I dyed my hair a dark red. Like a cherry red. It looks purple, and redish. I don't like it. About 2-3 weeks before that, I had dyed it a light red, but it started to look orange. So thats when this color came in.

I miss my dark brown hair. :(
I'm planning on going back dark brown next month. My ends are already fried now from dyeing and straightening it.

So should I just go ahead and get it dyed next month, with a trim afterwards??? In the meant time. I'm just going to use Paul Mitchell's color care shampoo and conditioner.

After I dye it. I will never ever touch my hair again!!!
BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!

    And it will not be your natural color again until it grows out.

  • I'd get it done professionally other wise it could be more of a nightmare & just get a semi/demi done less damaging & your hair is already porous enough it will grab the colour quickly & then yes a trim but again I would NOT do it yourself.

  • Add green streaks to it. You'll keep the narrow-minded people away till your hair grows out. Who knows, you might find it refreshing!

  • I ended up just getting it trimmed again!! I got 3 inches chopped off 3 weeks ago. And 2 inches today.
    I'll be dying it again in June. I'm going to let it grow a bit before I chop some more off.
