HELP! PINK STAINED HAIR.):by Jhall430Posted 3 years, 9 months ago
So, I wanted to go auburn for the fall and got stuck with a dark red/purplish color that I absolutely HATED. I used color oops and tried 2 bleach baths with toner in Wella T14 & T18. I got left with pink stained hair. I got ashy blonde hair dye and threw that in to try and counteract the pink, but it hardly worked. The pink was not budging. So I color oops'd again and tried both a lemon and conditioner mix and then a vitamin C treatment and had the pink still. So this morning, I threw in another toner to calm the orange down, but I am at a loss. I just want to shave it and start over. Someone please help me? I want to get back to my blonde or as close as humanly possible.

I don't really know if going back to blonde is realistic. Pink staining can be super sticky and especially after you use a lot of peroxide products over it, because it breaks the dye molecules down really small and they become extremely difficult to wash out and can get really deep into your cuticle. Is there any other colour you could live with?

What had you used for the initial dye that caused the purple red colour? Did you hair re-darken at all after colour oops?
I would certainly stay away from bleach and Wella Color Charm as your hair has been through a few processes now. Depending on your answers to the questions above, you might benefit from another round of colour remover. Failing that, I would keep working on washing it out. It may be possible to fade it to rose gold kind of colour.
