When your hair is very dark and you want to dye it blonde, it will most likely turn orange. The hair would have to be bleached to remove the dark color. Changing your hair color can be a difficult process. I don't think you should do this on your own. I recommend that you see a hairstylist.
Some hairstylists will get confuse when toning down hair colors. Let your hairstylist know that they need to use a violet base color to neutralize the orange in your hair. To tone down the red, they have to use ash/green based color. Good luck, hun.
Dear Pretty... You really know and care about the outcome of some of the vast expectations of several dark-haired women who want to become blondes overnight. This is not possible unless they go to professionals, and you've been trying so kindly to explain this. I hope this sinks in to most. Also, someone stated that they were in the sun and in the pool - what most un-natural blondes forget, that the pools with clorine in them will give their hair a shade of green - which is not fun. The sun is a natural bleecher, and also dries out the hair if not treated with the appropriate products to prevent this. I just love the way you try to explain and wish you were here to help me with mine. LADIES - THIS GIRL KNOWS WHAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT - LISTEN UP...
