My hair was brown but i wanted to go back to blonde. So i decided to use a bleaching kit. But my hair turned out orange with blonde roots. I don't know how that happened. I read online that if this does happened to try to darken back up with a medium brown or a ash brown. SO i'm going to let my hair set for a week and try dying back. But in the mean time i'm not leaving my house. I hate my hair. I Hope i can fix it cuz i can't afford to go to a hair saloon. Way to expensive.

Do not darken your hair again if you are still wanting to go blonde.

Only darken it if you are going dark.

Brown - to orange - to blonde is the normal process it will take for your hair to lighten.

Once you bleach it again it will remove the remaining orange tones.

You can also try using a silver or purple shampoo to help remove the yellow and orange tones.

Was this a bleaching kit you bought in a chain store like walmart or target? Or is it something you bought from sallys? If it's the first, just know what it is not strong enough to lift dark hair to blonde. For most dark hair you need bleach and volume 40 developer to lift you from dark to blonde. Another factor is time. If you buy a really good bleach and developer, you can be lifted in as little as 20-30 minutes with minimal damage to hair. I personally would never buy dye from chains b/c they are all set at Volume 20 which is the lightest lift. It's best for medium blondes and up. They are ok to DARKEN your hair but not lighten.

The reason your roots were blonde is b/c that's where the most heat is. Heat helps lift the color. Next time you want to try to go blonde. Go to Sally's or Ulta and buy your bleach and developer from there. Mix it, put it on your hair a half inch away from the roots and wrap your head in plastic to keep the heat in. If you're real dark and not lifting fast enough, use a blow dryer.

I really don't have much to contribute since Isabel is absolutely correct. Also you need to start from the nape of your neck (back of your head) and work your way towards the crown followed by the sides and last your crown and front of your scalp. The back takes the longest to process than the front.

This seems to be a very popular question on makeuptalk.

It happens to all of us brunette or dark haired girls who are trying to go blonde or lighten our hair.

Dark hair turning brassy or orange is a natural step in the lightening process.

Here are some links to other members with the problem.

It might be helpful to read some of the replies other members have gotten on this subject.

http://www.makeuptal...-turning-brassy

 

If you do a search at the top of the page you will find pages of threads about the same issue.

 

I recommend purchasing a silver or puprple based shampoo to conteract the orange tones.

Do not colour it dark again, this will not fix your problem at all. Especially if you are continuing to want to go blonde.

Also you will need to invest in a highquality deep conditioner.

I have done this many times. Dont freak! If your hair is in reletively good condition you can rebleach. I have been bouncing back and forth from black to blonde and every color in between for ten years and ot ALWAYS turns orange the first bleaching. The second one takes it to a nice golden blonde. If there is still too much after second bleaching then purchase purple shampoo to nuetralize or if banana blonde get a toner :). I have done this several times and my hair is still long , thick, and healthy. Just make sure you use protein treatments and moisturize as needed!

When you dye your hair, there's lots of metals and chemicals introduced to your hair that can react negatively to highlights or bleaching.
I'm not sure whether you box dyed your hair (NEVER do that... I made that mistake myself), or if you had it done in a salon, but usually when you go from dark to light your hair will become orange unless it's toned. Toning your hair introduces a color that neutralizes the two initial mixes (brown and blonde = orange), so if you use a blue toner it will lighten the orange to a more yellow or "blonde" color.
My hair stylist told me this after her... very... long... lecture about box dying my hair.
Talk to your hair stylist about this. It can be resolved. :)

Noticed you said you can't afford a hair stylist after I made my post... I have my receipt from when I last went to my hair salon and it is as reads:

1 highlight only --$70
1 Woments haircut blow dry -- $30
1 TONER -- $20
1 Conditioning treatment -- $15
(each additional zone) -- $14
(each additional zone) -- $14
(each additional zone) -- $14
1 Hair cleansing cream -- $6

I have THICK curly/wavy hair down to almost my butt, and this was my first salon visit after I had box dyed my hair.

With all that hair... toner was only $20.
If you go in for that, it should help you a lot. It's just $20 to fix your hair and it could save you much more than trying to find "do it yourself" products from the store.

I have been a hair stylist for almost 10 years. Corrective color will cost you a pretty penny.. One thing to always remember is you cannot lift color out of your hair with another color. If you have box color in your hair and you are looking for a drastic change, go to your stylist and let them help you. If may cost you, but there is a ,much better chance of you getting to your goal without a disaster. At my salon, corrective color is a flat rate of $100, plus $50 an hour. So i guess what im trying to say is, you wouldnt try to operate on body, fill a cavity in your own mouth, or try to give yourself a tattoo. Professionals are out there to help you :)

This happened because your scalp is warmer than the rest of your hair and that caused your roots to lighten faster. You should be bleaching and putting a cap over your head or using a warm dryer to even out the temperature of the hair. Bleach hair until it is a pale yellow then wash it out. You should also be using a toner after bleaching. You should use an ash toner to neutralize any warmth. Mix even parts of the toner to 10V creme developer and apply to your hair.

 

To correct the problem you have now, apply the bleach the orange parts of your hair until they lift yellow and then tone.

 

Hope this helps.

When coloring your hair light, it is key to use a lighter developer on top and a heavier developer on the bottom. When I say this, I mean when lifting your color you want to use something like 20 on the top and 30 on the bottom. Why? Because our brains are hot and that is where the action is, which is why the top is always going to lift color quicker. Also, after you achieve the color it is key to tone with lavender toner to get rid of the brassiness.
