How do I fix my blond highlights?
A few months ago, my husband highlighted my hair and overdid my highlights. At some point he got confused and instead of painting small strands of hair, he started painting the front and top all over. (DUH!) Not only that, but he painted the front, near the roots first. So not only did he put too much on, but that part of my hair got lighter faster.
So I ended up with uneven highlights, lighter than I wanted, and far too light in the front and crown. It didn’t look that bad because my ash blond hair was literally platinum as a kid, so it goes with my coloring. However, there were a few pieces that were sort of ‘clumped’ and another few pieces that came out a bit brassy.
Yesterday, with my roots growing out something fierce (something that should not have happened if he had done it right in the first place), I added some new highlights to the roots, and some of the under pieces of hair that were very ashy. I did miss a few of the ashy spots though and I didn’t realize that I should have gotten the under pieces first, as well as the bottom of the hair.
It still looks ok, but I really don’t like it this light nor do I like the amount of contrast. I basically have platinum, strawberry blond, honey blond, and ash blond.
Here is what I’d like to do, but I’d like some advice on how to do it.
I’d like to buy a honey blond, and sort of wash it all over. In doing this, I want to reduce the contrast in my hair. I don’t want to lose the ‘unevenness’ of color. Just the extremeness of the color.
Is there a way to do this? Essentially, I’m asking to “wash it” darker. Obviously, the ash hairs are darker than the honey, so they would probably take no color at all.
Your advice on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated. PS: I can’t go to a salon because I can’t afford it, and, more so, these folks can’t even give me a decent haircut, so I’m not paying $100+ for them to do just as lousy a job as I can do at home. LOL!
