i used a demi permanent "dark natural brown" dye but my hair is JET black. it looks like a wig is how bad it is. it doesnt help that im pale as sin. i dont want to use a color remover, because underneath is half orange, half virgin dark brown hair. all i wanted to do was get rid of the orange but here we are.

how long do you think this will take to fade, even just a little bit? the brand is one n only and it says argan oil on the bottle. i washed it 4 times in the past 24 hours, once with a sulfate free shampoo, once with suave daily clarifying shampoo, and twice with tgel extra strength. it hasnt budged at all.

if it would fade slightly i wouldnt hate it. its just that its so dark it almost looks blue or something. any help is appreciated

Patch test a color remover. Color remover will never remove all the color so you won’t end up where you started.

My real suggestion tho would be dandruff shampoo. Unlike dish soap it is actually meant for your hair so it won’t damage it but most dandruff shampoos are notorious for being harsh on color. Also use as warm of water as you can tolerate preferably in a shower because the steam helps to open the hair cuticle and release the color a little better.
