    Okay so I have the worst luck with my hair because I can't find a decent hairdresser and so I just choose random ones at the last minute when I need something done. The quality is never good!

    anyway...I had my hair highlighted and it was growing out. So I had dark color all over my hair (close to black) and blonde chunky highlights plus the roots were growing in dark but not as dark as the all over color.

    So no one could get me in today and so I decided to just dye my hair one color again with some box dye that I had at home called "dark blonde"

    I just rinsed it out and blow dryed it and it's horrible!!! I have redish orange where the roots were growing in and the rest of it doesn't look bad actually, the dark is still there but lighter and the blonde is just way toned down but it still looks highlighted except for the few random parts underneath wear I must not have got too much color on (it's hard to do it yourself).

    So long story...but my question is...can i get a darker box color and put that on over this mess tomorrow and 1. will it cover it all since it's darker and 2. will it totally make hair fall out because of so many chemicals!!!!?

    The reason i was so impatient is because i'm in my friends wedding this coming saturday and I wanted to not have the roots growing in and I actually have gray hair (seriouslly) that was growing in and I was too cheap to get highlights again that would probably turn out like crap anyway!

    OH BOy! PLEASE HELP ME!!

      If no one replies, you might want to try to PM beachbride (shelley) or cessyboston (erica).

      Good luck!

              Thanks Erica...i just don't know who can get me in on such short notice...The color I used yesterday did turn the blonde highlights a little grayish...I actually don't think that part of it looks too bad...it's the orange roots! eek!

              Okay so tomorrow I will call around and see if I can find a professional to get me in....they can still just dye my hair one color right? They just need to do it because my hair needs a color correction? I think I have like 4 or 5 colors in it right now! :0

                I totally agree, definitely a semi-permanenet is the best.... in the end if noon could get you in, you might have to be forced to do a semi-permanent box (which isn't the first choice) but I love Shades EQ, it will make your hair soft and deposit the color you need and make your hair shiny again...

                    Redken is only sold to professionals or salon, I was just saying that is the best.... but if you couldn't make an appointment just try to get a box color that is semi-permanent (for emergencies)

                      oh okay....thanks....hopefully I can fix this...I don't think it's that bad to where I can't be seen in public...but you can tell that my roots are a different color (orangish red) than the rest of my hair. the rest of my hair since it had the highlights, it just lightened up the dark and the light...

                      :)

                      Thanks for all your help Shelly & Erica!
