A few months ago, I dyed my hair black. I liked the look, but have grown bored with it and wanted to go brunette again. So I bought a box of one of Feira's "hi-lift brown" shades that's made for dark hair. Colored my hair tonight... my roots are a kind of bronze/copper shade which looks kind of cool actually) and the rest of my hair still looks black! GAH!
I'd just go to my regular salon and get it fixed professionally, but I can't afford it right now. I found out there's a Redken hair academy close by. This would be a good learning experience for a student and the prices are cheap enough, so I'm going to call and see if they can squeeze me in tomorrow sometime.
