my first post. Today I used loreal light medium brown on my already light brown hair to cover the gray and it turned out too dark. Makes me look even older. How soon can I try another color. New to area and don't know where to go so I guess I have to do it myself. Reunion Saturday. I'm already fat and I can't go looking stupid too.....Help...

Sounds like you need a professoinal to do a color correction. Make sure you tell them you just died your hair so they take the proper precations.

Wash it a few times before you go profe$$ional,it will often lighten up. Try a strong shampoo like PRELL. This was suggested by a hairdresser and might be worth a try.
I dont think you have to wait but a week to try a lighter color if your hair is in good condition. I have done that before with good results .
Have fun at the reunion.

Just tonight my daughter is trying something called "OOPS" to take a too-dark brown/black coloring job back out of her hair. She has it on her head right as I'm typing it. Then we're going to color it a lighter shade. I'll let you know how that turns out.

montanamom, went to reunion with my too dark hair and had a blast. I was surprised at how most of us 62 year olds had given up coloring and were in various shades of grey. my color has faded a bit with at least one shampoo a day and maybe a couple of rinses afrter working in the garden. so how did the OOPS turn out. I'm in chapel hill.
