Brightening blonde highlights and fading dark lowlights
Asked Feb 17, 2006, 08:03 PM
Hi. I used to have pretty light blonde hair, mostly from highlights. Today I went to get hightlights and I asked for a golden blonde color instead of just straight bleach. She said because I had such light ends that I should do a highlight and a lowlight. I said OK assuming it would turn out a pretty golden blonde, but the lowlight color she put in is a dark reddish brown. I really hate it and my hair doesn't even look blonde anymore. I was looking up stuff online to try and fade the color fast, so I washed it twice with dawn, once with tide and used a violet based toner. Now the lowlights are a little lighter, but my highlights are darker and dirty looking. The all over color is really dull and sort of gray/ashy looking. I just want my blonde hair back and I don't know what to do. If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.
