My hair went really quite dark after dying it "dark blonde" - it is nearly black with ginger tints in it. How much would it cost to go to a lighter colour, it's shoulder length?

Hair cost questions really depend on what city or town you live in (cities being more expensive) and what salon or stylist you go to, and how much experience they have. What you are wanting though is called "corrective color" and runs on the higher scale. It's really hard for any salon to give you an exact quote because your dye can be easier to lift or more difficult depending on how stained or how porous your hair is. If you've been coloring more than the roots, it will most certainly be harder. If you're using henna to dye it dark, a seasoned professional who cares about the integrity of your hair won't perform the service at all because henna and regular dye don't mix and it can melt your hair literally. Some stylists prefer to use a bleach or bleach type of stripper, some use types that are more expensive but better for your hair but more time consuming that shrink the color molecule. But you are talking about a service that at minimum should cost you $100 and can go up to $300 depending on how much product is used and more importantly how much time is taken. This process can take two hours or six, and the stylist needs to make up the cost of time (how much they would make doing haircuts in this time) plus the cost of the product used.

It will all come down to how much product the stylist has to use and how long it takes, You are probably looking at at LEAST £80.00 in most salons for it as it is a Colour correction. By that it means there would be several stages to colouring and correcting the Colour of your hair, and may take more then 1-2 stages to get it a Colour that you are happy with. Lifting tint out of hair isn't as easy as it may sound as you cannot lift tint with tint to the level that you may be wanting, so a stylist would have to use a Colour remover or a bleach. It would be advisable to have a test piece in a salon so that the stylist will know how long it is going to take and what will work best on your hair. They may then also be able to give you a better price estimate. You will probably find the process will take at least 2hours just for the colour alone, but depending on how much colour build up you have on your hair and your hairs condition, will depend on how easily your hair will lift up to a dark blonde colour without damaging the hair. Do not do it yourself at home, as many people make this mistake and it turns out worse then it was previously and may cost even more to correct it. I hope this information helps you!

I would surgest you use standard head and shoulders and wash your hair lots as this will remove some of the colour from your hair, if it was a home colour it should wash out fairly easily.
Where do you live ? It would help to see your hair as you may just need a bleash wash to strip the colour and then a full head of high/low lights to even out the colour.
This would be about £80 for me to do but it depends on who does it and where.
Do not attempt to put any more colour on yourself !

Really depends on how many applications you have put on to get it that colour. The colour will have to be taken out first and this may take a while or may lift straight out. Someone on here suggested washing it with head and shoulders to help strip the colour I usualy use washing up liquid that works as well. Also what looks nearly black to you may only be light brown to a hairdresser so best to pop into a salon and have them look. Or if you are near Worcester call me 077 29396684 good luck
