Help! Major hair dilemma! Yellow hair!!
28 replies to this topic
Posted 17 April 2006 - 04:03 PM
PLEASE HELP!!! I used a lightening cream for my hair from the Schwarzkopf Nordic colours range - I used the lightest one because my hair is already pretty light anyway. Anyhow, my hair is blonde but it's got quite a yellow tinge to it! What do I do to get rid of it? My mum has suggested a toner from Wella but I'm not sure which shade to get - do I get a purple based toner (supposed to tone down brassiness/yellow) or a beige based toner? My hair is really porous so I'm scared that if I do use a purple based toner that it'll go really blue/purple??? It looks stupid! Either that or would it be safe to a mousse colour that washes out in 6 washes?? I've gotta go to work tomorrow too which is going to be well embarressing!

I'm not sure what to tell you; I really don't wanna give you wrong info. I can tell you that I hope Janelle logs on soon and sees this so you can get fixed up by work tomorrow.

well I've been looking over the Garnier Nutrisse permanent colours - thought this would be a little more nourishing for my hair! I've decided to get Light Beige blonde colour for my hair so fingers crossed it'll work!

Janelle, where are you!!??
Posted 17 April 2006 - 04:53 PM
please Janelle - I need you!!

Sorry! I'm here! lol (Can't log on at work really anymore ) Have you tried Clairol shimmerlights shampoo? It's violet - but it helps tone down brassiness. If you want to go with another color, I would try the new L'Oreal Natural Match colors... try one of the cool blondes.... my friend used it and it help tone it down a bit. HTH!

I know how bad you feel, my hair went yellowish when my mum coloured it last week. I had to go to the hairdressers and she put a semi-permanent on top... guess I'm going to have to live with it till the stupid bleach grows out :eusa_wall:.

Hi Janelle no worries I completely understand about not being able to log on! We don't have the L'Oreal Natural Match over in the UK unfortunately! I thought if I get a Garner Nutrisse colour then it might be less harsh on my hair. Everyone keeps telling me to get a purple toned toner or colour like Ash Blond but the last time I used an ash colour my hair turned purple it was awful! I thought that as I've used a lightening creme that using a colour like Light beige blonde would be ok - fingers crossed it will be!

IÂ´ve had this problem twice so far...yellowish hair after getting it highlighted, especially near the roots. my stylist recommended L`Oreal Professionel "Gloss Protect System" shampoo in "Silver". itÂ´s actually purple though, and my hair got back to looking NORMAL blonde in like a a week. I guess the results depend on what condition your hair is in. my stylist also said if you notice your hair getting ashy then itÂ´s time to stop using it. HTH!

try keeping the ash blonde on your hair just for a minute or so and mix it with a lot of water, so there won't be much dye. it worked for me!

well I went to Boots today and avoided all beige blonde tones (would turn it pinky) and all Ash tones (would turn it blue again) and got a Garnier Nutrisse that says "Light Blonde" so I hope it is a neutral colour. It's actually a darker colour than what my hair is now so I won't actually be stripping the colour just putting a darker shade on it. I also got a couple of toners in light ash blonde - the wash in wash out ones - just in case it goes a blue-y colour. My Goodness! what a nightmare! I'm considering going brunette if this doesnt work out!!! Just don't know if it will suit me! Aargh!
Posted 18 April 2006 - 03:28 PM
well I've managed to kinda sort the dilemma! I got a light blonde colour which took down the brightness and made it look like it was actually blonde then applied a light ash blonde toner to tone down the brassiness. Its actually looking better but it's still a bit too bright - I'm thinking of going brunette (see my other thread!) but I don't know if I dare do it. I've always been a blonde and I'm scared I won't be attractive to men and stuff as a brunette (just me personally - not other brunettes lol!)
Posted 18 April 2006 - 04:46 PM
Thats exactly why I feel better as a blonde, i think i fade into the background as a brunette haha Glad its not just me.
Posted 19 April 2006 - 07:01 AM
lol Sarah!! I just think it suits me as a blonde. Ok here are a few pictures of how my hair was yesterday before I salvaged it and after I'd managed to sort it out. picture 1 and 2 are before and 3 and 4 are after!

WOW you did a great job. I really love your hair color now
Posted 19 April 2006 - 07:14 AM
Aww thanks Andrea! I'm not too keen as it's a bit white and I feel a bit silly! lol! On my other thread I've said I'm going to go more golden blonde, bit more natural if you know what I mean?!
Posted 19 April 2006 - 07:44 AM
Nice job toning it down! I'm gonna go visit your other thread
Posted 19 April 2006 - 08:44 AM
As Andrea said you did a great job Vanessa. I love your colour, im so jealous I'd love to be able to pull of blonde hair like that
Posted 19 April 2006 - 08:56 AM
ha ha thanks Sarah! I think I look well dodgy! Like Chantelle gone wrong! I've decided to go for something a bit more toned down and that will be easier to keep up with like this. If I keep it this blonde I'll look like an albino on holiday cos in the sun my eyebrows and eyelashes go really blonde! lol! Plus it's bound to get a bit more sunkissed in the sun anyway I reckon
Posted 19 April 2006 - 07:25 PM
Looks good Vanessa! I would wait a few weeks for it to oxidize before doing anything else to it though...
