What can you do about orange tint to roots of hair?

I've always used sun-in in my hair, and I always loved the results. However, two weeks ago I used sun-in once again and I now have a orange tint to my roots. It is really noticable if my hair has not been blow dryed and straightened. If I blow dry and flat iron, it isn't too noticeable, but it is still there. The rest of my hair looks fine. I knew that this was a possibility with sun-in, but it never happened in the past. I know I could use toner on my hair, but I really do not want to do that or go to a salon. Does anyone have any advice? Should I just wait it out? Would John Frieda Sheer Blonde shampoo do anything for me? What would happen if I use sun-in again (by no means am I saying I will)? What could have went wrong this time that hasn't in the past? Sorry for so many questions...I'm just confused as to what I should do or not do. Thanks in advance.

  • If you don't want to do anything about it try going in the sun. See if it lightens up. If not you might have to tone it.

  • The blond shampoo wouldn't work, I don't think. You can try applying a violet shampoo or a toner to your hair, other than that, it might wash out after several shampoos.
