Bad highlights

Question Posted Wednesday December 30 2009, 12:26 pm

Hi, well i've been soo excited about getting highlights for agessss. Today i finally got them but they look TERRIBLE!! My hair is a mousey brown and she put so many very blonde highlights covering a lot of my head so it just looks really fake and tacky. Are there any ways i can make them less obvious or distracting without going back to the hairdressers? Thanks xx

Try to wash the colour out. I heard that anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner wash out hair dye (I know this because I dyed my hair and I couldn't figure out why it was fading so quickly until my mum told me that anti-dandruff shampoo & conditioner washes it out!) And using anti-dandruff shampoo while you don't have dandruff won't affect you in a negative way.

You could also tie your hair up and put a headband or clip in. And if you REALLY can't stand it, you could wear a cap or wig.

Also, you can get your hair dye washed out at the hairdressers, it is a bit expensive, but if you really need it done then I guess it is necessary. (I had this done, it doesn't hurt, but the hair dresser has to pull on my hair really hard to help get the colour out, but it wasn't that bad)

Good luck!

PS. You could try some really cute hair accessories, like head scarves and french barets.
