GREEN HAIR DISASTERPosted 2 years, 4 months ago
Okay, so I had my hair like a midnight blue and I went to the salon expecting the lady to get rid of it instead she just threw brown right over it (I was so pissed) so it turned green and she told me to come back in a week (yeah right) so I decided to get rid of it at home. I bleached it and it turned a mint green color. And I went to Sally's and bought this red protein dye and put it over it and it turned mostly red in the blond and darkned some of the green but it was still a bright green and so I did it again and it's still green. So I don't know what to do now. All I want to do is go back to brown but I can't get the green to go away I've tried ketchup I've green fading it everything. I'm tempted to just throw the brown over it. Please help should I just dye it brown or keep trying to fade it and kill my hair?

(Your hair is already dead, you can't kill it.)
Was the red protein dye a protein filler? Those are usually used before putting dye on to cancel out the unwanted tones. If the green won't come out anymore, I'd either put a red semi-permanent dye over everything, then dye brown on top of what you get or try a semi-permanent red-based brown dye (Adore has a lot of them). A darker brown especially would cover the base you have pictured, you'd just have some cooler tones where the green is, but it would still be brown.
Semi-permanent solutions will be more gentle, and depending on how damaged your hair is, "permanent" dye might still fade out a lot. If you go permanent, expect to dye over it a few times to build up deposits of dye so the color will really stick. It can take some time. Same is true of semi's, but people don't usually expect it to be an issue with permanent dye.
I'm sorry the stylist messed up your hair. :(
