At The Beauty Bar we know how it feels to leave a salon with a bad hair coloring job. You went in thinking you would add a nice red tint and came out looking like someone put a pumpkin on your head. While hair coloring isn’t the most difficult task in the beauty industry it does require a well-trained specialist who won’t just add color because you ask but will rather consult with you and tell you if your hair is too damaged for coloring or if the color you are interested in might not be the best fit. Avoiding a mistake is a lot better than walking around with a hat on for a couple of weeks.

If you are the victim of a dye job gone horribly wrong don’t fret. You can always contact The Beauty Bar and set up an appointment for corrective coloring that will flush out the bad color and replace it with a more natural look. However, if you are in a hurry and need to do your own fix, follow a few tips.

The first thing you need to do is be patient. Most hair stylists recommend waiting at least 24 hours before trying any corrective procedures. If your hair came out much darker than you expected you may want to try using your regular shampoo with a teaspoon of baking soda. Let the solution sit for about 15 minutes and then wash it out. If your hair came out too light, try coloring individual strands in similar colors to blend in the light with the dark for a more balanced look.

If the dye job is really bad and you are thinking of shaving your head take a deep breath and visit a hair care products shop and look for coloring kits that match your natural color. It is recommended that you double up on the amount of product to really cover up the bad coloring and you may also want to try stripping your hair first to dilute the dye as much as possible before coloring.

Home remedies may work but none are guaranteed. If you had a bad coloring job your best bet is to visit a reputable beauty salon and have a trained professional perform corrective coloring that will rid you of the unnatural color and give your hair a second chance. For a quick fix to get you through the day, try a fashionable head scarf or wig to hide the bad color job until you can get it corrected. Or you can contact The Beauty Bar for professional advice.
