A professional colorist can correct hair color mistakes.
Color correction is the process of adjusting hair that was incorrectly dyed. Professional stylists can tweak hair color
to yield desired results. The cost of color correction varies per
client and situation, and is determined during a consultation prior to
the correction process.
When hair color does not yield desired results, clients often seek color
correction by a stylist or reputable salon. Color correction is done on a
case-by-case basis, as there are many factors that can attribute to
unwanted color results. Some reasons color may not turn out correctly is
that the dye was left on the hair too short or too long a time, or the
dye was not mixed properly. Only a stylist can determine why color did
not produce desired results.
Too Light Hair
If your color turned out much lighter
than you expected, it can be toned down. Colorists usually add a darker
tone to bring the hair shade down to your desired hue. When darkening
hair that turned out too light, it is best to visit a salon. When hair
is lightened, it becomes more porous, and more prone to breakage and
severe damage. A professional colorist can ensure that your hair is the
correct color without causing further damage to the hair shaft.
Too Dark Hair
Correcting hair that
didn't turn out as light as you'd hoped is easy and relatively quick.
The colorist will simply apply more dye in the same shade, and let it
sit on hair until it reaches the desired color. This process is usually
fast because the dye doesn't need to sit on the hair for very long, and
colorists generally know what shade their client originally wanted.
Color mistakes don't just fall into the too-light or too-dark categories. Sometimes, hair coloring
takes a disastrous turn, and you end up with orange hair instead of
buttery blonde highlights. If you've colored your hair using an at-home
coloring kit and it didn't turn out as planned, it is imperative to
visit a stylist to correct the color; do not try to fix it at home. Once
your hair has been colored, it will absorb dye at a quicker rate
because the hair shaft is more porous. Instructions on the box of an
at-home color kit may not be appropriate for your already-colored hair.
Only a professional colorist can determine how to fix color mistakes.
