Hair colours gone wrong

I wouldnt use it on a day to day basis - but for hair colour disasters it does the trick on semis dont know about permanents though.

Amazing thats its marketed as this wonderful stuff and it strips the hair pmpl.

H&S will not only strip the colour it takes the hair out completely. My sister's hairdresser advised her not to ever buy it!

Was it a permanant or a tint? I ahem enhance my colour a little but only with semi's not permanants.

Head and Shoulders is leathal stuff - try washing your hair in that a few times - it will strip some of the colour if a tint.

Oh Sparrow - they are not white love, they are SILVER!

I only have silver hair amongst my black! LOL

I am thinking of putting a rinse on my hair so thanks Lin for the tip. Mind you I have always fancied being a blonde LOL.

I was pulling the white ones out but they kept coming back. I would love to have a blue or purple rince.

Just a little word of advice Sparrow. If you are aiming to get the white ones at least similar to your natural colour go for a shade lighter as:
colour on top of colour = darker colour.
Lol sorry you look gothic !

have been colouring my hair lately just to hide one or two white ones. I try and keep to my natural colour brownish. Well yesterday put the colour in left it to long. Now I look like I am a goth or going emo.
