Just after peoples experiences with having their hair stripped. I'm normally a light mousey brown with a little blonde but dyed my hair dark brown last year. I want to go back to natural now.
I went into hairhouse warehouse (I think) when I was at the shopping centre last week and they said due to the length (mid way down my back) it would be around $250. This would include toner to even anything out.
Is this reasonable?
I don't really want to do it at home as I've never tried anything like this before and can just see it ending in disaster.

Stripping hair colour

Yes it's expensive. I got black stripped out years ago when mine was quite long (too long ago to compare the price though). It's also really harsh on your hair. They strip it, tone it and then put a permanent colour in to match your natural colour. I found I could see a big difference when my hair started growing - it's hard to 'match' natural hair - and the stripped hair would not take hair colour very well afterwards.
A cheaper option may be to get foils to lighten it over time (well, it will probably cost more eventually but not all at once). Since the time I stripped it this is what I've done to 'fix' any hair dark (and also red - along with toner) colourings when I change my mind back as it doesn't leave my hair like straw.

Yeah that does sound about right. I had it done ages ago and it cost me a mint.

Damn, I was hoping the replies would be 'no way, that's far to much!'.
I think I might just do foils and take my time.

I'd go the foils.
Stripping really isn't good for your hair! My hair ended up going from black to a pale pink! I did end up loving the color because I was 17 and left it instead of going back for another treatment. My hair was really damaged for ages because of it though.

I am a bit worried about damaging my hair with stripping.
I got lucky years ago when I had my dreadlocks taken out, my hair was in better condition than before I had them. I don't think I should push it too much more, even though I dye my hair...lol.

That's reallllly expensive.....for hair house warehouse. We charge any where between $200-$500, depending on what we have to do to strip it and any after services(foils, colour match/correction) however, I find I can usually get people to where they want to be within the first two visits and their hair isn't ruined. But yeah foils slowly is a good idea
