Good professional hair color turned into revolting light red a month later. Want to get back to original color at-home. What to do?
I'm going to use this
as a guide.
My natural hair color is something along the "Walnut" color at the top, just a normal brown color, not dark, but not too light, either. In January I had it professionally colored to a beautiful dark brown / red color, (the mixture was half dark brown and half red) and it looked fantastic--for about a couple of weeks. Now, in April, it is fading to this increasingly light red color which looks hideous against my pale white / hazel eye color combination (I'm "cool," if that helps at all). It looks like a lighter version of "Terra Cotta" on the third row.
I'm out of the country and would really prefer an at-home remedy to this, and I do have access to hair color boxes. My roots have been growing in since January, and I probably have about an inch and a half of roots growing.
I'm concerned that if I attempt to color it further, it will be on top of the light red, and just compound the problem. I would really like to get rid of the light red altogether. I am a total neophyte to hair color in general. Any advice? Is there anything I can do to take the color out? I use a volumizing shampoo, which I was told lifted color (I did not use this at the onset of my coloring job, but avoided it like the plague).
Also: I have fine hair.
