Bleached 3 times and toned 4 times and I am still brassy/orangeby roxxann3Posted 2 years, 9 months ago
Please, please help! I was trying to achieve a balayage look starting with dark brown hair and dying it with the loreal Feria absolute platinum for a platinum blond...but I have dyed it 3 times in 4 days (yes, my hair is dead but I am deep conditioning using coconut oil). After I dye it I use matrix's so silver shampoo (and leave it for 10 min) and the Feria conditioner that comes with the hair dye. After that I toned it the first time with wella's T18 and the last three times with the wella's t14..and half of my hair (the bottom half) is a platinum/white color and the other half is STILL orange/brassy. I dyed my hair tonight once more with the wella's color tango cappuccino color but it did absolutely nothing at all (used 20 developer). Please somebody help me and tell me what I should do, I really want the platinum color in the rest of my hair I just do not know what I am doing wrong. P.S. I would've gone to a salon but I can't because the only time I could go is after 6 when my husband gets home from work so that he can watch the baby (I have a 9 month old boy). And I am going out of the country tomorrow so that's why I dyed it 3 days in a row even though I know it really harmful but regardless I have to fix it Pronto because I am seeing family and friends I haven't seen in years and I don't want them to see me like this :( please help

It would really help if you added photos to your thread of what your hair is now and what you would like it to be if possible. Then it will be easier for everyone to help you achieve the look you're going for. :)

Here are instructions for adding a photo. Please try to post one outdoors or near a window when it's dry as that's the easiest to gauge the colour from.
You've done a lot of processing, though, so I don't really think you can reasonably fix the brassy bits in time and if you could, you'd probably cause some major breakage or give yourself a chemical cut. I'd probably suggest picking up a semi-permanent warm brown or copper shade and covering up the upper section.
