  • Go to a salon and have them try to fix it.

  • Oh, sweetie - if you can't afford to go to a salon, your best bet is to NOT bleach/peroxide again, try a darker shade and see if it will cover up the orange. You run a big chance of having your hair break off if you try to make it blonde.

  • Go back to Sally's and get a toner.

  • Get a violet toner level 2 or 3 and mix it with bleach. Peroxide is HORRIBLE especially if you have any red or black in your hair.

  • haha..if her hair is orange, a toner isn't going to due much, except to the ends/porous parts of the hair shaft. those areas will most likely grab a violet tone, and end up looking gray, while the 'orange' areas remain orange.
    stop wasting your money, and call a reputable colorist. anything that is done to your hair at this point depends on the porosity/integrity of your hair's condition after this botched-up homejob.

  • and for the last time..the ladies at Sally's know nothing!!! if they had full knowledge of haircoloring, they'd be working behind a chair, not the counter of a discount beauty store.
