Unhappy My hair is too dark

Growing up, my hair was very blonde. When I turned 16, it started getting dark. I started dying it back to blonde. Over the years, my hair had been different shades of strawberry blonde, light brown with streaks etc....
Well, I decided to take my root color and dye it to match
It's too dark. I hate it! My skin right now is pale, since I haven't had time to sun and I look like a zombie. Any of you ladies know what I can do on my own to make it look better?

Texasgirl, I know it's not what you want to hear, but I like your hair! I think it's a very nice color. Maybe give it a couple days and see if you get used to it. It sounds like you made a big change.

If you still want to lighten it, I know a friend of mine used a product that lets you give yourself highlights. She said it was really easy--you just use a little plastic comb to brush the gel color on yourself.

Hopefully jkath sees this thread, too. She used to be a stylist so I'm sure she'll have some great ideas.

But really, you look good!

Thank you, PA, you don't think it's too dark? I may get used to it , but, I'm not sure :o)
It is a big change from what I'm used to. I just figured it was time to grow up and see what my color is suppose to be. I guess I'm just used to my hair being light.

texas, i agree with PA. I think your hair looks great. Give it a couple of days to get used to the change...then see how you feel.

Actually it is the same color as my hair, and I wouldn't ever change mine. I love brunette hair. I think it looks really nice on you. You just aren't used to it.

i think it looks fine, tex! not too dark at all.
that being said, i have dark hair- it just recently started growing in almost light black- and i like to sometimes get subtle highlights and lo-lights. they brighten the face.

The color will lighten up quite a bit with a few washings and blend in with your natural hair color. I have always been a blonde...hehehe give me time and you'll see this, but I was dying my hair about that same shade. It will all blend and look natural soon enough. Oh and yes it looks good!

Thanks you guys. I really needed all of that!! I'm not a whiner by nature, but, I got really freaked out about how dark it is. What is sad, is that it's suppose to be that dark
I've just never let it.

I guess I'll just have to get used to it.

I like it on you too. That's about the color of my hair too. It will lighten in a few days. Pretty soon you'll get used to it and leave it!
