ok ladies... please help! My hair was light brown shade with highlights. Well I wanted to go darker so I picked up this dark brown shade from the store. My hair is now practically black... Is there anyway I could possibly get a lighter shade and re- dye my hair today? Would this work?Answer Question

Been there done that- the best thing is to just wash it with clarifying shampoo several times then leave in a conditioner for a while because you have dried it out with the shampoo.There is a color remover at the drug stores too, but that took my hair to this really terrible orange and then I had to recolor, so if the color is only a few shades darker than you want I suggest NOT using that. I don't know about the highlights though.

Yep it will lighten a few shades, dark colors always do.There's also some stuff (I forget what it's called) that accents the blonde or the red or the brown in your hair, you can get it at the store near the hair dye.. it's in a small tube. It's like blonde shimmer etc.. they make it for red and brown too.. it's supposed to be like "color care".. maybe you can try that and accent the red a little bit and make it look less flat... (color wise, not style). It will lighten on it's own though, I tried to dye mine blonder, and it turned a slightly orange-ish tint.. it was gone within 2 weeks.
