Uneven Hair Problem! What to do?by imlauraxPosted 3 years, 8 months ago
Hi guys, i had bright right hair for a year, decided to try to go a violet/mahogeny color like this:
i used l'oreal feria intense medium violet, didnt like how it came out so i slapped on burgundy wine sfx over it... Now im somehow left with a dark uneven color of i dont know what you would call it. It somewhat looks black but also a strange red...
how do i fix this and then go about achieving the color suggested? :( I dont bleach, ive only used l'oreal hicolor. Should i use color oops, to get everything out of my hair, then a particular box dye and then semi dyes over it to keep it refreshed? Im very frustrated & would appreciate help!!

Honestly not sure, red is not my color of choice and rarely been red or burgundy.
I would not suggest a color remover, because color removers are good for removing permanent color from box dyes. My non-professional experience have found color removers only lifting semi-permanent dyed hair by two levels lighter. Example a medium green hair shade after applying a color remover resulting in hair color of a medium green to a light green shade.
My opinion is some strands were or are more damaged than others and less able to hold onto color. So suggest if able wait two weeks and baby the hair in the mean time. If rinse the hair use very cold water to help close the cuticle on the hair shaft. Hair with cuticles blasted open will not accept color. Very cold water helps to close the cuticle on the hair shaft and keep color.
Suggest maybe apply SFX Burgundy to the lighter areas after two weeks of letting the hair rest. Suggest keep on the hair for at least an hour to several hours giving lots of time for the dye to stain the hair. Rinse out the dye and lightly wash the hair again using very cold water.
Red is not my go to color so hope this helps a little. These are my suggestions and opinion.

Well I do have permanent dye in my hair, I used L'Oréal Féria box dye a few days ago to get this color. So should I still not use the color remover? I was suggested color fix instead of color oops.
I appreciate your help even if it's not your usual color!

If your trying to give an more even base and the last thing used on the hair was Loreal Fiera Box dye then would suggest a color remover. If a color remover is used then strongly suggest rinsing at least twice if not three times thoroughly the color remover from the hair when the time to rinse occurs. From a previous post in General Questions, a lady used a color remover and did not rinse out the color remover thoroughly from the hair. She then applied bleach to the hair to try and remove the color further. The bleach re-oxidized the color molecules that were left behind and the color she tried to remove came back. This was because the color remover was not thoroughly rinsed out of the hair enough. The color remover might help to get an more even base hair color.
Red is not my color of choice and certain other friends and colleagues have more experience trying to get a burgundy color.
Good luck. These are my suggestions.

To be honest I can't see much difference with the hair colour you have now and the one you want. Your goal hair just looks a little darker, and in fact I like your hair as it is better, hahaha! :)
You say you haven't bleached but in using the Hi-Colors and box dyes you have done as they contain lighteners - bleach.
So the problem is unevenness? You want all your hair one colour? If so I would use colour remover(s) to try and dig through the SFX colour and the Feria and see what you have going on under there before progressing any further.
