So I've bleached my hair twice about six months ago (with color B4, it's a little bit different hair color remover) from black brown to medium brown. I haven't dyed my hair since that, but a few months ago I put a medium brown toner to my head and of course it turned out black... Luckily I was able to fade it away with some hot-oil treatments. Currently I've been using some color masks and conditioners but they don't stay long in my hair and now it seems that I have to dye my hair because the color looks so weird. So what do I do? Should I go to the store and buy a semi-permanent color? It has a 3 % peroxide so it's kinda strong for the damaged hair... Can you help me please?

okaay so no comments, well I just dyed my hair with a semi-permanent hair color and of course it turned black. again. yay. from this moment on, I'm going to the hairdresser. ugh.

I see your hair is kinda damaged at this stage. After using the color masks and conditioners, your hair looks weird, you should have bleached it again (damaging I know) before dyeing it again unless you're going to a darker shade. Since I can't help you because you already dyed your hair like you said (I should have came on earlier and I might be able to help you, or maybe not haha), maybe it's better now for you to just focus on repairing it than going to the hairdresser so soon? Because it can be expensive for treatment/dyeing that's why I always do my hair myself at home. Although I'm not a professional hairdresser or anything but I think I know enough to do it myself. Haha yeah, very risky.

Thanks Michelle :) Yeah currently I'm just focusing on repairing and NOT going to dye my hair alone ever again when they're this damaged.

Even if I had seen this hen you started u wouldn't have known where to begin most of my coloring is bleach then color ad then I due it back to black my natural to get away from my faded colors lol

But I de agree with Michelle to just worry about repairing right now and then after a month or more etc go to the hairdresser next time if it'd this much of a hassle cause I definitely know what it feels like to not get what you were going for
And yea it's expensive but worth it to get it right the "first time" lol just save up and next time you'll be set

Thanks Tina :D 

If you fried your hair (probably by using to harsh a bleach) it's going to be very porous and not really respond well to anything. I agree with Tina, focus on repairing it - at least six months of no colour treatments, and very little heat treatment!
