Last Thursday I had my hair dyed at a salon and it came out black. My hair is naturally dirty blonde and I just wanted it a shade darker than my roots to even it all out. I really don't know what she did to make it so dark. I didn't think to try home remedies when I got home and went away for the weekend. While I was away I washed my hair nearly 6 times in a three day span and it still looked the same. So, this evening I went online to research some techniques. As we speak, I am soaking my hair in dish detergent. I don't know if this is a good idea or not. I was planning on getting Prell shampoo after work tomorrow. Is it too late to be trying these techniques? All of the advice I have been reading is for people who dyed their hair within 48 hours. If not, what do you suggest? I don't really want to get my hair stripped and pay the additional money. The salon I went to isn't near my house (I was dog-sitting). How long does it normally take for hair to fade naturally with normal shampoo washing? Thank you for your time. I hope to hear from you soon!
