Dull Color Disaster

Your new color can become dull and lifeless from product buildup. In order to save money and time with your hair care routine all you have to do is mix 1 part of apple cider vinegar with 5 parts water. Pour this lotion into a spray bottle and apply it on your locks evenly. Start massaging the treatment in your locks and finally wash the vinegar off with cold water. The result of this revitalizing remedy will be simply dazzling.

Excess Color Disaster

If your locks turned out to be darker than expected, you can fix this coloring mistake at home. Indeed, it is important to make sure your scalp is in top shape to use the following remedy.

Use a color removal/stripping kit or liquid laundry detergent on your tresses and massage the lotion into your hair for 3-4 minutes. Be sure to avoid the roots to make sure you don't do more harm than good to your tresses. Finally rinse off the detergent and repeat this procedure until you get the desired shade.


Two Tone Hair Disaster

Blonde hair can be really tricky especially if you've attempted to highlight your darker locks for the first time.

In order to make the best of your two-tone hairdo until you make an appointment at the beauty salon, all you have to do is braid your tresses. You'll be surprised by the fabulous visual impact of this cute and simple styling idea.


Orange Hair Disaster

Going red without the help of a pro colorist can lead to a huge hair disaster. If you happened to try it and the result is tragic, try your hand at the following trick. Orange hair can be fixed if you apply a demi-permanent golden blonde shade on your locks. In order to tone down the orange shade, it is wise to apply the coloring product on your wet locks. This will guarantee the successful result of your beauty fix.


Green Hair Disaster

Blonde hair can go green due to chlorine and sun exposure. However, this shade can be also the result of a bad coloring job. In order to get rid of this problem all you have to do is soak your tresses in tomato juice at least 3-4 days in a row. Apply the organic lotion on your tresses and leave the treatment on for 15 minutes. Then rinse it off with cold water.
