I colored my hair purple with pravana vivids Attachment 25786and now I'm ready to be done with it, anyone know how to remove it safely? I've been shampooing it 6x a day, color is coming out in the suds but when its dry it looks just said bright as it was before. My hair is usually not shampooed and in very bad shape from doing so. I'm trying to stay away from chemicals but thinking I may have to dye it darker. Any suggestions?

It took one application and my hair was bright orange. It was enough for me to dye over it an ash medium brown color that looked fairly decent. Still came out really warm looking, but it was no longer burgundy or purple. No one knew the difference!

I didn't use Color Fix because it's never really worked for me before. The second picture I included was the color after about two weeks. It was much warmer in real life, but still decent looking. And I had removed A LOT of red tones from my hair underneath the purple.
