Yep! Mix 1 part honey with 1 part shampoo and work into your hair.
Then let it sit for about 20 minutes then rinse and condition. A more potent shampoo like head and shoulders may work better
how to lighten my too dark hair. it is dyed and a very dark brown-almost black. i dont want to use bleaching and higlights. something natural to lighten it a little?
thanx nideshade. do you really think it will work? cause my hair is chemical treated. i did use chemical colors for it. may be sun with something., like lemon or so?
I had this problem before with chemical dye and managed to get loads out with a mixture of baking soda and dandruff shampoo (I used Vosene which is really cheap) - mix about half shampoo and half baking soda to make a paste then put it on damp hair and leave for about half an hour before rinsing. You need to use loads of conditioner afterwards though as it's really drying but works well on colour
If these ideas don't work you could use colorfix. It can be found at a beauty supply store. It's chemical, but not near as damaging as bleach and coloring. There are many threads here on lightening dark or or removing black dye. A search with the words black dye would probably get you quite a few hits.

When did you color it? Use baby shampoo or head and shoulders every day, use olive oil masks to draw out the color and condition. Any newly dyed commercial dye color should fade significantly after 2-3 weeks of strong shampooing and oiling.
