How to fix a bad dye job

Although you know it's best to get your hair professionally colored, sometimes it's just not an option. Perhaps you've been tightening your budget, or maybe you just wanted a quick touch-up between salon treatments, but you've gone and done it - you've dyed your own hair - and it came out all wrong!

First things first - don't panic. With a little effort and ingenuity, you can fix your own beauty blunder with these three tips from hair experts at Prevention Magazine.

1. Home hair dye chemicals are very harsh, so you'll need to wait at least a day before you can act. Then, mix a small quantity of shampoo with 20-volume hydrogen peroxide and work it thoroughly into your hair, applying evenly. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes to remove some of the bad dye.

2. Choose a dye that's closer to your natural hair color. Leave the dye on for only half of the recommended time, as your scalp and tresses won't be able to stand another full blast.

3. Indulge in a deep-conditioning treatment before washing your hair again. This will help repair the damage of the dyes.
