Have You Ever Dyed and Re-Dyed Your Hair Right Away?

Whether it’s a teenage run-in with a tub of Manic Panic or a visit to a colorist who must have still been drunk from the night before, it’s pretty common to have a hair color disaster. Have you ever colored your hair, hated it, and had it colored again right away?

the same time that i cried at the salon, i had to have them re-dye my hair that day cause i was miserable. i've always been blonde - since i was a baby - and i tried to change that - but it wasn't me, and i sat there for a few more hours to have it brought back to the right color

I only have done that once and it really fried my hair. I tried to turn my dark brown hair blond. Well, it turned bright orange so I had to go to the salon and I ended up with brown hair. Brown fried hair.

I've done this many times unfortunately! Once I had dark marroon hair and bleached it blonde but it turned orange and then I dyed it back the same day, and later that week I attempted to go blonde again. I mean, what was I thinking! My hair eventually fried off and I had to get a pixie cut. I actually dyed it 2x yesterday. Oops! I had pale blonde hair with platinum ends and wanted to go darker for fall (yes, it's August, but I can't wait!) My natural hair color is golden blonde, so I picked up a shade of Medium Blonde, but it turned my ends gray! I made the mistake of not getting a gold shade. I couldn't wait and went to get a dark golden blonde shade, and it turned out gorgeously, and my hair isn't damaged, luckily!!

I tried to lighten my brown hair before a date and it turned orange... I had to call my date and tell him that I wouldn't be ready for another hour and a half, made a run to the drugstore and quickly redyed it!!

The first time I dyed my hair, it was for a part in a play. The front looked awesome but the back looked like some on had spilled jam down the back of my head. It was awful! I had to go to a professional the next day to get it fixed.

I went blonde once, well orange/white and it was awful. I died it brown quickly the same day to cover it til I could make it to the salon a week later where they fixed it. Its never been right since but its getting better slowly!

Yes, only when I had a friend do my hair at home. Usually it comes out horrible and I have to go to a salon to fix it. So I learned my lesson and now only go to a salon when I need a dramatic change.

The first time I dyed my hair because everyone I knew was lightening their hair color, so i thought why not and went to the store. Instead of having a fresh new look my hair came out looking purple. I started to panic cause i was having a photo taken in the morning. So there I go to the store to get another box, this time it did fix it some. The bad thing is too much dye made my hair brittle and gave me split ends. I haven't dyed my hair since, I also learned to find my own style and not be a sheep.

I dye it myself using the professional hair color like you get a beauty supply shop...surprisingly I've never had any problems. So far, at least.

I was adding a couple highlights on my own at home and somehow got a blob of bleach mixture on my roots. OOPS! Glad I had a a back-up box of dark blonde dye to do a spot fix afterwards. It blended in surprisingly well when it was all done.

Yep - this is why I will NEVER go to a friend to get my hair done (still paid $115!!): this very unprofessional girl applied color rather haphazardly, stuck me under the dryer, then proceeded to talk on her phone, flip through magazines, organize her day planner, etc. while my hair FRIED. My poor roots were 2 inches of SNOW WHITE - I looked like I'd died and my hair kept growing, it was awful. I went home and cried to my then-fiance (oh yeah, this was 6 WEEKS before my WEDDING, and I was terrified my hair was going to fall out!) and made an appointment with a different stylist for a color correction 2 days later.

I have dark brown, almost black hair and I tried going for the platinum blond streaks. Turns out, I look horrible and the color did not match my skin at all. It washed me out and I had to go out and buy dye. It was awful!!

Yes, a couple of times I have colored it myself it has came out orange-ish and I made the mad rush to the store with a baseball hat on. Horrible! Now I rely on my hair stylist.
