I dyed my hair last night & I hate the color though it came out too red! :[ The box said it was suppose to be a medium reddish brown. But instead my hair came out red. Well when i got home from school i showered and tried to wash out the dye and it didnt come out like i hoped it would. It's permanent too so its not like it will eventually come out. My mom said she WONT redye my hair because its too expensive and i dont know what to do. My hair is short with layers so i know it wont take as long to grow out. Anways i was wondering if anyone had an suggestions on what to do or how to get it out faster besides dying it. Thanks in advice.

As time goes on it will fade alot. Or you could go to Walmart and get this really cheap stuff that will strip the dye out of your hair. They also have plenty of very cheap dyes to choose.

First off, just about every color you pick to put in your hair seldom comes out as it shows on the box. It usually turns out too dark if is a brown; to light, not light enough, or even yellowish or greenish if is a blonde; too red or brassy if is a red; or in your case, reddish brown, more red than brown.
Now, to be quite honest, the only way you will get your hair to the color you actually want, especially now after you have colored it to this red color, you should go to a salon to prevent it from looking worse.
I understand that this is probably not an option for you. It is expensive to go to a salon. So- the next best thing for you to do (though I know you aren't going to like this) is to just leave it. I promise you, the red WILL fade. Red is hard to keep in your hair, so after time it will be the reddish brown you wanted.
The best way to do this is to just be patient (which sucks, I have been there) and wash your hair twice when you usually just wash it once. Shampooing fades any dyed hair color, but you just have to give it a week or two weeks at most. [ Brandi_S's advice column | Ask Brandi_S A Question ]
