I stripped the red out of my hair and tried to go back blonde but it was a strawberry blonde that had blotchy color because of stripping such a dark dark red out of my hair. I had to wait a few weeks because of the damage I was trying to avoid and then I went back brown close to my natural color. I hope to let my hair grow back out, and keep the brown color until spring time at which time I am going to get highlights again (professional) lol me and my hair, its like a soap opera.
Stripped color + blonde = Strawberry blonde
Neutral brown (not sure why my phone is taking checkered pictures lol sorry for the poor quality but its the only photo of the brown I have).
