Today I dyed my virgin medium ash blonde hair a strawberry blonde color & it came out a bright orange pinkish color. I followed the instructions perfectly, but it looks nothing like the color guide.
I just tried washing it with dishwashing soap and hotttt water to try and fade it a little, but i couldn't tell a difference at all.
Is there any remedy? I know I probably can't get it back to my virgin hair, but I want it back blonde preferably. I know there are things like color oops - could I use something like that tomorrow and dye it an ashy blonde over? Or should I just go to a salon even though I'm pretty sure they will have to bleach it - I am terrified of having my hair ruined - I have been growing it out for years.
I think the color even lifted my own color a little when I dyed it- does this mean it could just need toning to turn out a natural color?
