OMG! I had beautiful hair on Tuesday morning and a disaster in the afternoon.
I went to my colorist with the following instructions: "I want brown hair. Chocolate brown. BROWN. I do not want black or even close to it."
She insisted that I keep the damn dye on my head 45 minutes after she finished applying. When she rinsed I thought I was going to strangle her.
I looked like some freak goth kid. HOLY CRAP!
She tried to back peddle stating some lie that she said she had to go black because of my highlights and I cut her off!
I pulled the ends of my long NOW BLACK hair over to the swatch she showed me she was mixing and screamed, "Does this look like that color to you!?"
Quickly she made me do another full head of two blonde colors mixed together to lighted the BLACK on my head.
By the time I was done I was still black, just slightly less offensively black and my scalped was fried.
I'm itching to this damn day.
I calmed myself down and said I needed some time in my own home to think about this and call her back.
And I did just that. And told her she had to fix the color.
She charged me a lot of money for this damn mistake!
I did some research and the good news is that I found a product called Color Oops that gently removes the color from your bad hair dye job. It cost me another $20 and I got it at the drug store on my own.
I brought it to the salon on Wednesday night and we did two swatch tests as part of my hair had highlights and the other did not before this mess. It seemed ok. And we proceded with the full application.
I insisted that it not stay on for more than 15 minutes from the time she started the application.
I couldn't believe she started to argue with me that it should be 15 minutes from the time she was done with my full head. NO WAY! I just cut her off.
At 15 minutes we did the rinse and wash and another rinse for 15 minutes as instructed and another wash. Then I did a deep conditioning for 20 minutes with a cap.
When done the color was a nice warm brown...close to what I originally asked for.
Shitty hair color gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
