I had the same problem, and a hair salon recommended mixing bleach and shampoo and leaving that on my hair for a while. I have to say, it didn't quite work, but that might have been because I had already bleached my hair before dying it.

Hair salons are used to dealing with such problems. Maybe you should call one up and ask for advice, or shell out the money, swallow your pride and have them fix it (not fun, I know).

By the way, *dyeing* your hair blonde over the plum won't work. Dye can only make your hair darker. If you wanted to go back to blonde, you would have to use some bleach.

ahh, a department i have much experience in!

You're stuck. You need to buy a bottle of peroxide and bleach your hair. you'll only need to bleach it for a few minutes, though since your hair is light. Go to a salon if you are afraid of screwing this up. It's gonna cost you, but it's better than screwing up and frying your hair, getting a chemical burn, or worse.

however, if you've got qualified assistance (someone who can help you that you trust enough ot not screw up), you can buy a pouch of lightening powder and a bottle of creme developer from any beauty supply store. if you're not sure what products to get, ask the shop keeper. But my suggestion would be to get a creme no higher than 30 volume (20 should be good enough) and a strong powder for faster action.

Mix the two in a non-metal bowl or cup till it's about the thickness of heavy cream. Brush into your hair with a dyeing brush and let sit till it's white.

After that, you can buy regular hair dye and dye your hair back to normal.

Color is for crayons, not for people.
