Just wondering if any mommies know how to remove red hair dye?

I have been dying my hair red for a few years. I'm tired of dying it and with lo i have no time for that, so I want to have my natural brown hair again, I went to Sally and the lady told me to buy wella brown color which has green and blue base that she says will get rid of my red hair. Anyone knows if this is true? I'm afraid of my hair turning green or something going wrong.

    Honestly, I have had a terrible experience with trying to do my own hair dye, so I would go to a professional. Have them dye it as close as you can get to your natural color so that you don't have to maintain anymore :)

    It might not happen, lol. The only dye problems I've had was blonde dye not taking a couple times, but my mom's had a few problems with Loreal dye. Stylists are the best option, but if you don't have the money, you could let the red fade. Get some extra sun and fade it out. Some red highlights will be left, but sometimes the red fades back to brown. Takes a few weeks, though.

      I can't bleach my hair is dry as it is. The green base in the ash brown hair dye should neutralize my red hair. But will it wear out then I would have to keep dying it brown then?

        It is true that you want to use green or blue base colors but only of you don't want ANY red, the green or blue base is only for color correction and if your hair is dry it can pick up the base colors and not let go which means once it starts to fade the ends of your hair will be green or blue. If you want to do brown but don't mind a little red, your safest bet is to find a nice brown that has a slight red tint to it. That way there is no fear of it turning green or blue. Plus brown that is an ash base (green or blue) is often a lot more drab and dull than red base color. Also if your hair is dry you will have to color more often. Color just doesn't stay as well on dry hair.

        Thanks, I didn't know my hair color could fade and turn blue or green I hope it doesn't. The lady at Sally said once I did that color the red would not show up anymore, she even said she did the same and has not dye her hair in a year. I dyed my hair this afternoon it looks darker than I expected it also looks shinny. Hopefully it doesn't turn green :(

          Dark is always a safe bet as well. If your hair was dry the color will always be a shade or two darker than what it says because it grabs it. If it is dark though you should be ok.
