    Black hair, dyed brown, how can I dye it ash brown?

    Asked Apr 15, 2007, 08:32 PM 19 Answers
    Hi I have naturally very dark brown hair, its pretty much black. I have been dying it black for the past two years. Today I bleached it and then dyed it "light ash brown". Obviously it didn't come out "ash" at all it more like a golden brown.

    My hair is actually still very healthy after bleaching and dying it today... I was wondering what can i do to make it more of an ash brown? should i bleach it again then try a lighter ash brown? or how do I get the red out? Thanks so much for any help! I'm inserting my hair before I dyed it and after... maybe it can help show you how it came out..

    &

    I would really like it this color... or a little darker..
    P.S. my eyes are blue so I this color would work... thanks again!

    You don't have to bleach your hair again. If you want to tone down the red tones and make your hair look more ash brown, use an ash brown color. Leave the color mixture on for ten minutes, then rinse it out.

    Hey, sorry I'm no use to what you asked but id like to ask you a question! I dyed my hair jet black yesterday [im naturally very dark brown] and it was meant to be dark brown [it'd gone ginger from previous dying] but it went black, id love to have it the colour you did in the second pic or just any colour brown, uve achieved this really well so I know you've said how but if possible could you explain how you got it from black to brown so fast? I cant afford anything too expensive either! Please help because I start 6th form on Monday! Xx

    When I had mine an "ash" brown, it had a greenish tint..

    Then again, I did it from a box

    And for the second person, your color might fade eventually!
