Did You Dye Your Hair Too Dark?

Your hair is one of the best ways to make a statement with your look. That’s why the right color is important. It’s also important to remember that home coloring jobs can sometimes go wrong, even if you follow the product instructions.

There are a few reasons why hair coloring doesn’t come out quite right sometimes. If you’re making lighter hair darker, you don’t have to leave the dye on your hair as long. If you’re going from dark to light, the dye should stay on your hair for a longer period of time. If you’ve chemically processed your hair or if your hair is damaged, the dye should be removed as soon as possible.

Hair coloring is an intense coloring process and could make the hair extremely dry. This is especially the case if you color your hair too often or don’t use an intense conditioning treatment. If you’ve colored or dyed your hair at home and the results are too dark, there are several ways to try to fix this, however the process can be tricky and not always a guarantee.

Special Shampoos

If you aren’t sure how to fix hair color that is too dark, try using a specialized shampoo. A clarifying or lightening shampoo can help you get closer to your desired color. This is a safe treatment to use in between salon visits as well. To make the shampoo more effective, apply the shampoo liberally. Leave it on your hair for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly and repeat as necessary.

Hair Dye Removers

You may also want to use dye remover when you need to know how to lighten hair dyed too dark. If you’re not satisfied with the dark color of your hair, a remover can make the color a little more appealing. Keep in mind; dye removers don’t transform your hair back to its natural color. It will take some time to reverse your hair back to it natural shade. However, the remover will take away the intensity of the dark dye. This will make the color less dramatic. Dye removal is a chemical process as well, so use the gentlest formulation possible. Don’t use dye removers too often, since this can weaken your hair. Excessive dye remover can lead to breakage. This means that your hair will need to be both rejuvenated and re-dyed, which can take a toll on your coif.

Remember not to mix and match dye remover with bleaching products. The chemical reaction could result in an unsightly color.

It is highly recommended to have a professional hair salon colorist neutralize the color and restore your hair to the shade you want.
