FAQ: Why My Dark Hair Will Not Color Lighter?

Question:
My natural hair color is an ash brown and I dyed it black. The other day I bought a golden brown hair dye but it didn't take. I followed manufacturer directions and processed hair for 25 minutes, just like it said , but it didn't work. Can you explain why?


Answer:
Light permanent dyes do not make hair colored with dark pepmanent dyes lighter - you need to use first a color remover, lift the dark color to at least one shade lighter then the desired color, and then apply the tint.
