How to fade/remove red? :)

It's been red for 4 months. Bleached once all over and dyed it probably twice. I put a little dye in my conditioner and topped my hair with every other wash, though this was probably so unnecessary for my hair. I haven't done this in weeks but also don't use shampoo!

I attempted to fade this 3x with clarifying shampoo, vitamin c powder (makes my hair feel icky tho) and I swear it only makes it look brighter. It does get orange/yellow near the roots but everywhere is the same!

Bleach is not an option.
Color Opps is but ugh, egg smell!

I think if I do that it'll be a ginger color. It'll still have red in it, how do I neutralize it? Ash brown ?

Wow. That is really a stunning color. May I ask what you used?

Ash will neutralize some of the red, BUT- what color would you like to be in the end??

Sally has an additive you can mix with your color that's supposed to help get the red out. Other then that, I agree that an ash brown (if brown is your ultimate goal) would help cancel out the red.

BUT, that is such a powerful (and stunning, to steal cg's apt choice of word) color that I would only really recommend an expert colorist. As they say, color won't lift color, so if you really want it gone, you'll need someone who can do a high lift and then place the color you want.

Wow!!! now thats a red...awesome!!your hair looks in great condition, so
I agree, with the whiteowl If oyou really want a change, seek out a color specialist.Ive ronald mcdonalded myself a few times, (and kinda liked it,actually)A professional,will help you with options, which way to go, without damage, very much like the red, though. I keep telling my colorist someday..its brilliant.

First it was a mix of Loreal's hilift Red & Magenta then refreshed the color with some RAW Ruby Red. Such a less damaging dupe! haha

I'll like a brown, even a gingery color would be alright.

When you're ready to cover it, you can deposit a neutral or ash color over it- demi. The tricky part will be matching the color up in the future when you're ready for a retouch.
