    Default HELP! Have highlights need to change

    I had gotten highlights (no I have no idea why in retrospect) and they looked great but now a lot of the color has washed out and some of the highlights are very white blond and it looks terrible on me.

    I don't want to get more or have them fixed.

    Do you think I could just get away with putting a wash out coloring in it?

    Just remember that on lighter, porous hair that "wash out" coloring becomes permanent.

    Hmmm so if I did something close to my natural color that could be a good thing right?

    (THANKS!)

    Yes. It will look like natural highlights hopefully. The color will fade a bit over time, but only stripping will get rid of the color completely.

    I did it!
    I used Feria 40 i think it was not a semi but it worked really well.
    I love the color, it covered the highlights and voila I can leave the house without a hat again.

    THANK YOU!!!!

    Ooooh you're so lucky - I tried to home-dye once over bleached highlights and ended up with green hair! I then had to spend the entire following day in the hairdressers to end up with a remotely decent brunette colour
    It was years ago though and I've now gone back to blonde

    ^ Oh wow.
    I'm sorry to hear that...

    It's fading again now but it's still a hell of a lot better than it was so I am happy. I may do it again the end of the month or something.

    ^^Yeah, it was pretty traumatic when I looked in the mirror to find I looked like a blumin fraggle!
    I'm currently considering going back to my original colour of dark blonde rather than the light colour I have now but I'm worried I'll end up looking dull... what do you think?

    If the highlights are nearly white go back to the salon and ask for a toner to deepen the color. It can be put on at the sink and only stays on about 15 mins., also, make sure you don't wash for at least 24 hours after the toner.
