I dyed hair red, it is uneven. How long before I can recolor? Can I use drug store color to fix?

I used Loreal Excellence HiColor Highlights for Dark Hair

Using drugstore dye is what got you in this mess in the first place. If you can afford it I#039;d go to a salon to get it fixed. If there is a beauty school in your area they will be much cheaper and have close supervision to make sure it is fixed well. If nothing else I#039;d call a salon with your questions. Dying again after only two days seems awfully soon to me and may really damage your hair even if the new color comes out ok. Just my uneducated opinion.I color my hair every six to seven weeks but try to keep the color fairly close to what it was if I can't find the same exact color or want just a little change like a little lighter in the summer but nothing too drastically different from what it was.

You can redo it in like 2 days. Just don't wash your hair. Also make sure you use conditioner for the next two weeks. But after redoing it try not to wash you hair until the natural oils rebuild.

You can recolor your hair to mask the red dye about two days after having colored it in the first instance. You may however have to use a deep conditioning treatment. Many hair experts recommend a period of 4 to 6 weeks, so visit your hair stylist for more information as well as details on using drug store colors.
