    I'm colouring my hair for the first time ever and really nervous! *it's a DISASTER*

    I'm colouring my hair for the first time ever - eeek.
    Well, I've had it highlighted at the hairdressers but had to stop that, and when I was given a nice n easy med blonde hair dye, the new foamy one, I decided to give it a go.
    It is currently on my head, the timer is on for 25 minutes and I'm cacking it!

    Hehe, i look like an idiot at the moment.
    I like the colour of my hair - mousy blonde - but bored and feel poorly and thought a change of hair colour might be nice. Now I'm crossing my fingers hoping for the best wondering what they hell have I done.

    Oh no, I just looked in the mirror and a) it looks darker b) it looks...urrr...Ginger (not that there is anything wrong with ginger).
    Hopefully it will look better when it is washed out!

    I heard ginger people are considered very attractive in America, very desirable.
    I however want to be blonde(r).

    The alarm has gone off. Oh no....here goes...if you don't hear from me I'm crying into my ginger hair X)

    its always darker when its wet im sure it will lighten up

    If it goes ginger buy an ash toner to neutralize it xx

    It looks horrible! I'm ginger, not blonde!
    Oh sh*t
    And I ruined my jumper.
    Got to laugh though.
    PM me your address, I'll send you the voucher, it's worth £6.99, valid until 20th April or something like that, valid anywhere. It obviously doesn't suit my hair, I'll stick to the hairdresser next time!!

    It's not a nice red, it's a dirty yucky light brown with ginger tones throughout. Bloody horrible. If it was a sexy red I wouldn't mind so much...it is not though.

    I would if I could. But I can't. Not only do I not have my computer to upload any photos but a little bit of me would die inside having this monstrosity online for ever more.
    Be grateful your eyes haven't been abused by this most horrible colour I have ever seen. And be grateful it is not on top of your head.

    if its gone ginger its because your hair needed to have it on longer as it hadn't had long enough to get to the correct tone for you - everyone is different ot the amount of time it takes to reach the correct colour - i wouldn't use an ash blonde on it as it will look green on ginger nuts

    hawick! I just saw the pic of green things you uploaded ... lol That was fun

    I used this one it came out really dark! But now 3 weeks later u can hardly c it.

    You need to go to boots and get some of their own brand dye. The colour you need (im pretty sure) is extra light brown. I've used it before and it's purple based so should neutralize the orange in your hair nicely. Hope this helps!

    I stuck a blonde bleach dye on mine yesterday and it went yellow/ginger. You'll need to put a toner on it to tone it down and turn it to blonde.

    I used Nice'n'Easy last year and my hair went ginger too. I called up the advice line and they said I hadn't left it on long enough but I'd left it on for the longest time they recommended!
    They sent me a voucher but I'd never want to try it again!!
    It cost a fortune at my local hairdressers trying to get it looking okay.
    Always go to the hairdressers now, won't risk it at home.

    unlucky that it didn't work hope you can get it sorted.

    I don't trust the hairdressers to do my hair, as last time i went, i wanted vibrant purple at the front, and black and the back, they got the black right, but gave me a really dark burgandy at the front, which so wasn't what i wanted, so now I do my hair myself, and the time i am putting the colour on straight after the bleaching is when i get the perfect baby blonde... lol
