    Default Help with hair!?!?

    Ok so I may have done something really silly but I went and got some Nordic blone extreme lightner l1++ felt like going blonde for a change. So my roots are super blonde but the rest of my hair is light orange and dark orange ! I used a blue based toner which has taken some of the orange away but not nearly enough.
    My hair isn't damaged its still quite healthy despite this so was wondering should a just go over the orange again? Or what? Any suggestions I am completely open too.
    I'm trying to be optimistic trying to rock out the orange but would totally prefer it gone!

    Inc pic to show the roots vs the rest of my hair

    I use a purple toner when my hair gets too brassy/orange and it works wonders!

    Personally, go to a salon hun, that orange is gunna be a ***** to remove at home. The toners at salons are much stronger than home kits.
    Doing it at home after already using a prelightner could make it snap, or even melt it into a gooey sludge

    My hair always goes orange if i try and dye it myself.
    Last time i went to the salon and they did something to bring it back to the original color.. light brown.

    I am too scared to dye my hair again, no matter what color i go, lighter or darker it always go bloomin orange !

    The reason you have gotten the orange is because you either a) had colour build up from dying your hair, or b) you had red hair to start with. When bleaching you have to keep in mind that the base colour for all dyes is red, it is the colour that makes the hair dye stick to the pigment in your hair, making it the hardest thing to remove when bleaching. Purple toners are designed to remove gold and yellow tones, and don't do much for the orange. The only way for you yourself to fix it without damaging your hair is to dye back to a darker colour, otherwise the hairdresser over time may be able to fix it. Good luck.

    Yeah I know but fixing it at home takes a lot of time, you would have to bleach streaks or foils every 2 weeks to keep health in your hair. Otherwise the hairdresser may be able to do something for you with minimal damage to the hair.
