My name is Tesla, and I am new here (obviously).
I joined this forum because I am in all out crisis mode.
I was recently blonde and decided that I wanted to go back to my natural color - medium chocolate brown.
Well.... my hair turned green.
And not a pretty, socially acceptable shade of green.
It turned a diarrhea green mixed with shades of brown.
I was horrified.
I went to my local beauty shop (Sally's beauty supply) and asked them for advice. They suggested a color stripper - called ColorZap, and pointed me towards the shade of brown that I wanted.
They told me that after stripping the color out of my hair, once it dried I would immediately be able to color it to my desired color.
The stripper worked wonderfully. It was like I never dyed over my hair.
Then, I applied the hair color.
Once again, my hair is green.
It's not nearly as bad, but I am still severely stressed about this.
