  • I just came back on to ask this same question, except I have dark hair and it came out way too light. I have no answers for you, just letting you know you're not alone.

  • give it a good conditioning mask treatment. ION makes a great one. put it on, put a shower cap over it, leave it for at least 1 hour then rinse. That should help with the dryness

    I would wait at least a week before doing any other color on my hair, if i were you. Wash it with really warm/ almost hot water to wash some of the color out until then.

  • My mother in law used to do hair, and she had me mix 2 parts peroxide (the higher % from the hair care store, not the brown bottle for cuts) with 1 part cheap shampoo (suave works best), put it in my hair, and leave for about 30 minutes, wash it out, let the hair dry, and do it again. It worked for me, and didn't hurt my hair. I had the same problem when I did it that you do now. Or, you can get a professional to do it. There's no way to color over the really dark hair w/out first lightening it. Good luck!

  • You cant do anything unless You bleach it because color cant lift color.
