I thought this was only supposed to happen when going lighter?
I bought L'Oreal Natural Match in Medium ASH brown...just cuz I didn't want any weird warm reddish tones.
Figures, I'm muddy brown with glowing orange undertones.
Please help...what can I do?

Go to a salon or beauty school and have it stripped and start over
put a darker semi-permanent over it with a chestnut or lighter
or this can be a new trend setter
Just kidding;
try this and it should be fine, remember next time that you decide to DIY
at least google a hair color wheel/chart to give you an idea of colors to choose for best results, and it's okay to mix two different colors to achieve the desired results, do a swatch test, or put it on a white paper. a palette
and wait to see what color it will actually turn;
My $.02 cents
I hope you get it all resolved soon
Bless You

I told you to listen to me!



Sable Cove lady!
Sable Cove!

At this point you need to get the color oops and deep conditioners or you are going to fry the crap out of you hair.

Get some paul mitchell Humec. conditioner and shampoo.
Get some "Color Oops"
Do the color oops box.
Cleanse with Humec. Shampoo
Rest 48 hours with condition left in at night
Color over with SABLE COVE that I mentioned in the other thread.

Get clarifying shampoo and wash the heck out of your hair (condition well). I had an experience (opposite of yours where I had been to the beach and my hair was bleached blonde (blonder than I usually am) a friend had the bright idea to see how I'd look w/a dark mahogany temp. color) - it turned me into Lucille Ball red...lol. Some washed out but some I had to let grow out and get cut off.

My original color is brown, I was going only a very slightly darker brown. In fact, it'll only red near the roots. The ends of my hair are almost the color they were, I can't even see the difference between them and my natural hair color. I'm about 15% grey, I was just trying to cover it.
It's better now, I got some Shimmer Lights shampoo, it's for blondes. It's a really deep blue colored shampoo that somehow kinda ahears to your hair. It helps to done down the brass. It's by no means a miracle product, although highly recommended by a million websites. But it's kinda sorta a little helpful. With my hair up, and w/ gel, you can't notice the brass, it'a actually only when it's down and the light hits it now. I'm relieved. I've dyed my hair before, and people usually say things... "Oh, I like your hair" and "Did you dye your hair?" No one has said a word. Either it's so horrible they won't say anything, or it's just not as bad as I think. My fiance was away on business, and even he didn't notice when he got home... but that was after washing it 6 times in the 36 hours after my experienment, and after the blue shampoo. LOL

Well next time just get the dark brown because that "ash trick" does the exact same thing to me. I have a lot of natural red in my hair and I do think thats why it goes..well I KNOW thats why it goes orange on me.

I am not familiar with Natural Match hair color. Is that a perm. hair color? It sounds like your grey did not grab the color...Is that where the Orange is? I am glad the bluing shampoo is working for you.

Hi, dmarie1243,

My hair pulls brass too, especially at the ends. I read where you had good luck with the blue shampoo. Aveda makes or made (?) black malva and blue malva, both shampoo and conditioner specifically to tone down brass. I think both deposit some color, in my experience more so with the conditioner than the shampoo. They are gentle.

I'm really hesitant about natural match products. I know that in makeup they tone more "pinky" than I prefer on my skin, which is fair. I would be hesitant about hair color because mine too has a lot of red tone. Ash just does not hold on me!
