So you've decided to dye
your hair, you either did it yourself or you went to a salon
to have it done by professionals, either way it did not turn out
the way you wanted it to. You have a complete disaster on your head.
Blaming yourself or the colorist will get you nowhere and cutting
off your hair would seem too drastic a move to do your best bet
would be to undergo procedures on hair color correction.
Here are a few things you should do if you find yourslelf with a hair color disaster in your hands:
- Never attempt to fix the color by yourself at home. Doing so may only cause more problems and may damage your hair.
- If you had your hair done at a salon by professional colorists, contact them as soon as possible and report your problem. Immediate action is critical for safely correcting your hair color problem.
- Avoid getting into a tussle with the colorist; being impolite and placing blame will get you nowhere.
- Be forgiving enough to give the colorist or salon a chance to fix your problem; most salons will correct your hair color at no additional expense on your part.
- If by chance you had gone to an unfamiliar stylist, try finding an expert in hair color correction; it is a good idea though to stick with the colorist who botched the job as professionals know what to do to fix the problem.
- Remember that correcting a failed hair coloring job will take several visits to the salon. These things cannot be reversed instantly; serious hair color problems may take up to five visits before they are corrected sucessfully.
- If going to a professional for help is not an option for you, try seeking assistance from the hair color manufacturer. Most hair color makers have a help line printed on their product packages which you can call in the event of any problems.
- Remember that consumer hair consultants will not be able to give you detailed assistance over the phone.
