    I had bleach blonde hair, then went to a hairdressers and dyed it chocolate brown about 6 weeks ago. I went on holiday in that time and now all the brown ha pretty much gone and i seem to be a dirty blonde colour.

    I want to go back to being brown. I have bought a dye from boots but im worried if i dye it with that my hair might turn out orange or something.

    Should i dye it myself or wait and spend more money at the hairdressers?

    But did you have dyed hair and then dye it to a different colour yourself?

    I've dyed my hair blonde, brown, black and red, all over each other. My hairs been loads of colours. So yeah, I've dyed over dyed hair. In fact, I can barely recall my natural hair colour. It'll be fine.

    Pretty much, it's much easier to make your hair darker than lighter, so you should be fine.

    should always go hairdressers.
    i've always gone hairdressers for colour and it's worked great, left my hair in good condition
    i knew someone ho did the DIY kit again and again, didn't work out so great for them, both the condition it left their hair in and colour.

    Home dying hair brown is fine, its just when you want to go lighter that you need professionals (generally)
    All the ''chocolate'' browns I have tried from the box make my hair really warm and sometimes even quite orange in some lights, therefore i would recommend buying a neutral or dark brown without any warm undertones that way you won't end up reddish or orange as it fades. I think if you just want a block brown hairdressers are far to expensive. If your hair is long you will need to use two boxes of dye to get that complete overall coverage, anything shoulder length or longer and you will need 2 boxes. I'm not sure using a semi will cover your hair properly so you would need permanent but if you decide you want to go lighter you will have to let this lighten up for a few months before being able to.

    You must really know what your doing! I tried going blonde from brown and completely damaged my hair it went all crispy and bright orange/yellow. Do you know why that happened? Thankfully my hairs ok now (kind of) although the peroxide really did damage it and I'll have to grow out the damaged hair.
