I want to remove hair color build up due to years of semi permanent coloring.?

I have natural medium brown hair, I have colored my hair every two months (for the past 2 1/2 years) with a semi permanent dark reddish brown. Since it is depositing so much color, my ends (that have been previously colored, I ran the color through every other time) have become too dark, almost black. I didn't think semi color would do this. Also the roots and middle of my hair (I have very long hair) have become way to red, almost burgundy. Well, I want to go back to my medium golden brown hair color. I know color does not lift color. So, is there a safe way to remove some of this color build up, before coloring my hair close to my lighter natural color. Ughh, please help. P.s.- Even though I know most would say go to a salon, I will be doing this myself. Thank you, soooo much.

you can't go back light with out bleaching. i would get a really good trim and wait it out because with the red your hair will all ways pull red through the color making it look red no matter what.

Wow, that's a lot going on with your single head of hair. And, yes, I would advise you to seek professional help. Truly, that is the safest way to ensure you get the desired results and do not compimise your hair's health.



Since this is something you have decided to do yourself, I have one product I use that I feel as a professional is safe enough to do at home. Check out a Sally Beauty Supply store or the website (www.sallybeauty.com) for Salon Care Hair Color Corrector. This is a two part product that will remove only the ARFTIFICAL color, not your natural pigmentation. It is a non-bleach, gentle formula and is easy to use. You mix both parts and apply - easy enough.



With your case of darker ends and extreme length, I would advise purchasing 2-3 kits and starting the process on your darker ends. This could mean applying the solution in two stages - first with your darker ends and rinsing, then again over your entire length.



This is the best shot you have for tackling this at home. Avoid anything with peroxide or bleach since you could end up doing more harm than good. After all, your goal is to not have to pay mega bucks for a pro colorist to fix you hair, right? If this product does not provide the results you desire, it may be time to see a professional. There is another cost effective option, though. Look for a reputable beauty school in your area - they often offer discounted services done by students who are supervised by licensed instructors. This can be a way to help someone learn and save you a little cash.



best of luck!

Supposedly, the semi-permanent coloring should wash out in a certain number of shampoos but I too know this isn't always true.



I too would suggest a trip to the salon for correction -- I ended up there myself for a very expensive fix after my home job turned bright purple and blotchy. So, not only did I make a mess of my hair but I ended up at the salon anyway.



If you want to try some ultra-tough shampooings -- maybe try some in an unobtrusive spot so you see what you are getting before you commit to a whole head affair.



BTW -- my salon fix ended up costing about $200!!! They had to strip out the color and then correct the color. Ugh.
