Removing pink tones?

So I recently BCd my pink hair to which it was still pink. Faded my pink and wanted to try a box dye to cover it up. I've tried 2 different dyes and it just mixes with the pink. I'm trying to get a golden brown color. I'll use anything by now. I'm not trying to bleach or anything like I use to. Any ideas on a dye I could use that won't mess with my curls?

You've tried two of what type of dye, permanent or semi? Box dyes still contain bleach albeit at a low concentration, they will damage your hair with repeat use so you'd be best doing patch/ strand tests.

Which pink did you use and what have you tried to fade it? SFX Atomic Pink is virtually impossible to shift IIRC, see the Hairdyeforum or Haircrazy forum.

Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
It was beyond the zones candy apple red >. But yes im aware it'll be damaging but not as damaging as bleach. And before rhe dye I've used baking soda and head and shoulders shampoo

Repeat box dying is quite damaging, the alkaline developer badly affects the cuticle, fatty protective f-layer and porosity not just the bleach damaging the core protein structure. I badly damaged the lengths of my hair largely by using dark box dyes as instructed, 'refreshing' the faded lengths each time.

Yeah and that's what I was trying to aviod. Badly damaging my hair. I did ask on one of the sites but most of thier tricks im allergic to or have tried.

Referred me to use a different brand. So I went with garnier being that I've used it in the past with good results. And from the moment I put the cap on my head for the dye 2 sit I knew it was working. Had the tingly bleach feelings lol.

It turned out great and the overall color I wanted as well. Now to let it grow
