Colorfix on light hair/cassia?

doubleteadoubletea Posts: 58Registered Users
I have looked and looked through these threads...and I see only experiences of those with dark hair and using color fix and their hair turning lighter. Anyone use this on hair dyed red/orange? I like my hair color, but I would like a change i.e darker or light brown. Okay, unfair, but this is a two for one; I paroused the henna/cassia thread to no end and went to the henna forum and read cassia or may leave a lightened hue to hair (golden?) but only on blonde hair? Given my hair is already a strange hue didn't want to go there...any experiences with it on dyed hair? Thanks! I am fighting impulses to buy things so I eagerly await input!

    Colorfix is a hair color remover. It will remove any color from most hair dyes so that you can recolor it. What did you use to dye your hair red/orange?

    If you want to go darker, I do not think you need to use colorfix, first. Just dye is darker. Do a test strand, though, because the underlying color will affect the outcome.

    I'm not a professional, so take my advice as a layman.

    As for the cassia, I do not think it has much color to it, so putting it on dark hair does not really change the color. It might make it look glossier.

    You know, i thought about re-coloring it; then I got paranoid about making some ungodly color error...figured starting from a fresher slate may be safer. I have seen a few threads about Robert Craig color and was thinking of using that. I used Dark and Lovely from Soft Sheen Carson, its a permanent hair color.

    You need an ash tone like ash brown eg 117a http://www.clairol.co.uk/products/niceandeasy/shade_chart.jsp or 114 depending on your current hair color my natural hair color is brown and I got sick of regrowth so I went with the 117a though if you dont want to go too dark Id try a tone like the 114 its light ash brown
