*Fail Friday* - The epic fail of hair. - Part 1

I'm going to break this up into probably about 2-3 parts, but not completely sure yet.

Let me show you a pic of how my hair started out. 

Pic taken 5/7
I think I'd colored my hair just a few days prior to this picture.  This was on darkish brown hair using L'Oreal HiColor HiLights for Dark Hair Only in the color Red from Sally's. 

Yes I color my hair red, I started out with red hair that turned brown as I got older.  It totally doesn't suit me.  For those of us who dye our hair red, we know it fades fast.  This didn't really fade much, but about a month or so later I started having root issues.  I had some bleach powder & decided I wanted to see what this color looked like over bleached hair. 

I had the regular white bleach powder but only had 10vol developer.  Rather than wait, I went ahead with the 10 vol. & ended up with this.

As you can see, it's blonde/yellow at the roots & orange everywhere else. 


6/9 be continued!



  1. Aww I'm sorry /: I hope you can fix it .

  2. I am waiting for the next part.

    (This feels very familiar to me... lol)

  3. Okay, I did this EXACT same thing about 10 years ago.

    I've been dying my hair red (not just red...but bright deep flaming auburn) since I was about 14. I'm naturally blonde, so one day I figured I'd try to go back to my natural color. Fail. You cannot ever go blonde from red without professional help. Like you, I had blonde roots and orange growth.

    I went to the salon, paid the $150 for a color correction and have never attempted to go back to blonde again. The thing about hair bleaching though, is that it's not unusual to have to bleach it 2 and 3 times in order to get it light enough for what you need. Personally, I wasn't willing to keep on doing that. Your newest color looks awesome btw :)
