I'm not entirely sure that this is the right forum for this, but I also figure that other people (or at least someone, somewhere) must have this question.
I'm to dye my hair. this is not the first time, this is probably not the 50th time. However, it's been dyed turquoise and purple since september, and now I'm trying to dye it orange and red (specifically, the orange over the turquoise and the red over the purple). The old colors are pretty faded, and the red took OK over the purple, but... the orange did not fare so well. thank god i just did a test strip first.
anyway, as those of you who paid attention in kindergarten have probably guessed by now, that particular chunk of hair is now a fairly ugly shade of brown. ew.
so, basically, I need suggestions on how to get the old colors out of my hair. They've been there for two months (as in, I haven't re-dyed since december), yet, they're still going strong. I really, really don't want to bleach again, because that's just a bad idea.
so, any help?

Color removers exist, though I can't claim any experience with them, so no advice on usage here. However, you're most likely to find them in beauty supply stores, and the people working in such places often have a pretty good idea how the products they're selling work, so do ask if you buy it.

The Manic Panic website states that you can mix up a small amount of bleach mixture and add it to some regular shampoo, and that should be a less abrasive way to strip the colour from your hair.
i never successfully deleted colors from my hair without a certain amount of peroxide. you can use a lower-volume bleach. for example, I used 40 volume creme developer with bleach powder to turn my black hair blonde. you can use 10-volume to clean up the orange+blue.
