I dyed my hair in april...    I want to dye it, close to my natural color..  I hate that my roots are showing & I don't think it looks good.  This is the first time that I've done this.  

Do you think I can dye it myself or go to a salon?

My natural hair color is medium brown. I dyed it using Garniea Olia hair dye.  The color was suppose to be a light brown, but it turned out to be a light red. DH loved it, me I hated it & wanted to cry. :(

SO  I bought some color opps & it didn't take all the color out It made it a lighter version  of red.. But has since lightened so it's a light brown if that makes any since.????

Since it's now a light brown and you want a medium brown, you could most probably do it on your own at home. How is your hair, though? Not to dry? If it's dry then I would treat that first for two or three weeks then dye it.

If it's damaged or if you aren't sure you'd get the colour you want, then go to a salon. Or go to a hairdressing school and get it done there if you are on a budget - though they are students, they know much more than we do (or at least more than I do) and their instructors are there to guide them.

If you want to do at home and your are unsure, call the customer service people and ask whether the colour you are going to pick (give the ref number) will give you the colour you want now that your hair is light brown and anything you should do/prepare beforehand and look out for.

Good luck!

I would go to a salon. If you get another box it may come out wrong again. If it's brassy they will need to use ash to counteract the red. depending on your natural color, if u put ash on it, it could take on a green hue. Have a professional look at it. Box color can be harsh and hard to fix. You have an advantage since the color has faded, if you put fresh color on then need it fixed it may be more difficult.
