  • You Do NOT want to dy it aain. You can put a temp. color to tone it down. I am a licensed stylist trust me.

  • I think that you need to go to a professional....I wouldn't try to strip my hair if I dyed it black...It's too harsh.

  • Been there, done that, called a professional.

    You can get a color rinse called "Fanciful" at the Sally beauty supply store. Get something with "ash" in the color name. Ash means it has greenish undertones and will hide the fire engine orange. Use this to mask your situation until you can get help. Follow the instructions on the bottle.

    Get a hat. Wear it to the salon. Go to someone who specializes in corrective color.

    My friend always keeps a wig for emergencies. For us adventurous hair gals, a wig is a good back up plan.

  • I did this once. I just got a bottle of Red to mask it until I could get in to see a professional. That was the last at home dye job I ever tried. A pro is kind of expensive but better for me than screwing up my own hair.

  • . Just dye it brown or blonde. SO been there and done tht so many times.....don't waste money on an expensive hairdresser and the color will pull through after a couple of washings with semi permanent. They would tell me it takes time time for what dye it hte color you want . I got stuck with reddish brown hair for a month because the haridresser said so. Yuck it washed out and the shampoos were so expensive. What a waste of money!!!!!!!!

  • I've learned that it's cheaper in the long run to go to a professional, but only after so many bad at-home dye jobs. :)
