If you are among the thousands of people that dye their hair, chances are good that you’ve had your hair color turn out all wrong at least once. Whether it was due to reaching for an at-home box color or you fell victim to an inexperienced or poorly skilled colorist the results are the same- you hate your hair color and feel stuck with it. But all hope is not lost. Corrector color can help clean up color mishaps to restore your confidence and help you love your hair again.
There are several kinds of color corrections that you might find yourself in need of, so the process really must begin with a consultation to determine the best plan to restore your hair to a thing of beauty and end your hair color nightmare. If you find your blonde a bit brassy or your brunette is too red-tinged, it may be as simple as applying a toner to counteract those undertones. The two most common color mishaps are the color turning out too dark or too light, so let’s take a quick look at what those two processes might look like.
My Hair is Too Dark
Lightening up a color that is too dark typically involves a multistep process that may take several visits to complete, depending on the level of lightening needed. It requires some patience, but it’s well worth the effort. You may require bleaching to lift the unwanted pigments. Your locks may need to be given a week or so to recover, and your stylist may recommend some restorative treatments to help repair and protect from further damage before applying more bleach to lighten further or adding another color to achieve the desired shade.

My Color is Too Light
If your color has turned out much lighter than you expected the process to restore your color is usually a little less involved. Often it’s just a matter of your stylist choosing the correct toner or hair color to darken things up. But this is no easy feat. It takes knowledge and skill to get the color combination just right, so don’t be tempted to rush back to the drugstore to grab another box. Leave it to your stylist or you could end up needing even more steps added to your Corrector Color service.
