    That's awesome! I love the color henna gives me but I'm curious to see what I would look like with my natural hair color. May have to try this sometime

    Btw, I have chemical dye underneath my henna. Do you think it would lift all of the colors?

    hmm....gives me hope that i can give this a try!! i might try it on my next days off...which is thursday. ill do a few SMTs too...maybe one every day...or every other. SMTs seem to wash out a lot of my henna. maybe ill do a heavy oiling too. do the color oops on thursday and re color my hair on friday. i love the shine henna gives me but im tired of it already...its uneven and doesnt even look how i want it to.

    If you have chem dyes it should lift those eventually as well. But, since hair dyes have developers in them, don't expect the color to be completely virgin underneath.
    Well, that's one year down since pixie. I have been knighted as 'turbo grower.'

    Right right. It's like years worth of chemical dyes but I hope if I try this that I get good results

    Do demi permanent dyes have developer in them too?

    I know it can't lighten the hair and has no bleach in it.

    ETA: Actually I'm scared since my hair was lightened before with sun in and lemon juice for years before I dyed it with the demi and the henna that it will lighten to orange. I've read that color oops can do it.
    Does anyone know the chances of it?

    cheetahfast- semi permanent dyes dont have developer in them. they dont penetrate as much and their dye molecules are huge so they wash out. As for demi permanent dyes...yes. you have to use developer with it so the chemical reaction happens. demi just isnt permanent and doesnt penetrate the hair as deep.

    Hmm thanks. I'm just trying to figure out what my chances of ending up with orange hair are, before I attempt this. I guess that means the demi color might not get lifted out as much.

    give it a try! :] i lifted out permanent black dye pretty successfully. red is the last to leave so if you have any in your hair at all its very possible it will pull brassy.
    my plan was to use the color oops maybe twice and see what i come out with then use a demi permanent dye with ash tone in it close to my natural color to tone out any excess brassiness and try to grow out my natural hair a little bit

    Ah thanks! My issue is that I don't want to dye over it after if it looks a bit orange. I'm also a scardy cat of what the previously lightened parts will react like. It's good to hear it worked well in your hair.
