Hair dye crisis!

I just tried to dye my hair back to its original color (light brown) from its present black color. I've had my hair dyed black for over 3 months, and I only dyed it twice during the first 2 weeks of having a new color. Well, my hair now has two layers of color. I'm considering just re-dyeing it again a week from now. Hey - that's what I had to do when I tried dyeing my hair black before, so maybe it will work this time as well. Anyway, in the tradition of host Marc Summers, this crisis still begs the question "What would you do?"

Hmmm if you want your hair to go back to light brown that might be difficult if the black dye is permanent. My hair was dyed permanently blue-black over naturally light blonde + I just washed it with normal shampoo for about a month + a half so it lost it's colour + then evened out the colour with a medium brown which seemed to work.

I'd go a shade lighter every time you dye your hair + not bothered trying to keep the colour until it's light enough for you again.. that means it's much easier to dye over.

Go to a professional and see if they can't either remove or lighten the color for you. I think you've taken it as far as you can safely go without ruining it.
