Dyed my hair bright orane but left with yellow that I can't get rid ofby Meeesh_Posted 3 years, 2 months ago
Hello! I'm wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing or if anyone has any advice... So I've been dying my hair with La Riche Directions hair dyes (on bleached hair) for a while and never had any problems.
The colour always fades out, however I recently used their Mandarin (bright orange) which was awesome, but instead of fading, it's turned out bright neon yellow which I can't seem to shift at all :(
I've tried using anti dandruff shampoo and washing up liquid and still no change!!
Thank you so much :)

What are you trying to shift it too? Mandarin can fade weird (the red tones wash out faster than the yellow tones) and if the yellow is close to what your base was before adding Mandarin... um, it can be interesting.
If you want it back to orange, I'd dilute a red-based orange and slap that on, or maybe just a diluted red. Strand test for the proper ratios. If you want the yellow to lighten up so you can put something else over it, I'd try Katie's Direct Dye Fading Treatment. It fades a lot of really hard-to-budge colors back to a clean base.

Sorry I didn't mention that! So before I dyed it orange, I managed to get it to a really nice ash blonde which was fairly low maintenance (which I wanted for a while). My hair is so greasy that I have to wash it too often. So I want to get it back to that colour really.
I've just seen a post about Katies Direct Fading Treatment so I'll try and follow. My hair is so fine that I'm terrified of using any more bleach!
