Haircolorists make a lot of money off of home color jobs gone bad, usually when one tries to fix something at home without knowing what they're doing. If you let your hair lighten up(and that can be moved along by using Prell shampoo a bunch of times along the way and of course using a really good conditioner since such a strong shampoo tends to dry out the hair)then you will notice the effects of the Goldwell product, since it ADDS pigment. This is different from traditional permanent color that lifts virgin color out of the hair and lightens if using a lighter, brighter color than one has naturally. So do definitely wait before doing anything!
With a demi-permanent color like the Goldwell, it's best to pick a couple of shades LIGHTER than one thinks one wants, due to the fact that it deposits color. In this case, maybe a light auburn or brighter copper, with a little bit of a brown mixed in(like 1 part of that to 3 parts of the red color). Best of luck!
Excellent advice! I actually read on the internet to wait at least 2 weeks before trying to fix color gone wrong so I decided to do that. It's been 2 weeks and I've shampooed almost daily, swam in the pool and I actually like the color it is now. Its lost the burgundy and is not as dark. I'd still like to try the foam or demi-perm color at some point to keep it warm and not brassy. I'm not sure if I should just try a light golden brown or light auburn to bring out the chocolate brown and tone down the burgundy. Thanks again!!
