Hair's gone orange - HELP!Watch
I then dyed over it using a light blonde dye. This toned down the orange and white shades quite a lot, but it still looked ginger in some patches.
Then today I dyed it again with a dark blonde colour. It's toned the colour down quite a lot, but it's got an overall orange look to it.
Is there any way I can tone down this orange? I have no idea what to do!!
Use too much of it though and your hair WILL go white with a purple tinge to it!
You can also use a silver based toning shampoo: I think the one in Superdrug is called ' a touch of silver'.
Your best bet would be to go to a hairdressers to get advice. They would probably advice you to dye your hair with an ash blonde.
Also I doubt you will have much success with purple-tinted shampoo. Lavender shampoos are used by blondes to cancel out the brassiness (same way the ash cancels out the orange) however it only works on high yellow tones, not bright orange as you say you have. Lavender shampoo is a subtle fix, it's not going to get rid of a bright orange colour.
