I dyed my short pixie cut Natural Black (by Dark & Lovely) about 3 weeks ago.  Thought I would love the dark contrast against my skin but I find that's it's just a little too harsh looking for my skin tone.  I would love to be able to get back to my brown hair without causing too much more damage.  So far my hair seems to be healthy still and in pretty good shape.  Does anyone know the best way to lighten my black dyed hair (just a bit) without having to bleach it?  Would a semi-permanent brown or auburn work?  Doesn't have to be a dramatic change, just enough to soften the harshness of the black and make it at least a dark brown.
Thank you! Smile

Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo a few times using very warm water, rinse, then deep condition. Adding a  teaspoon of baking soda to your regular shampoo, in hand,   also works well.

Lifting black is not easy. Try a permanent brown color that is a level 3 or 4. Warm tone. No green base.

Semi colors do not lift/lighten. You might have to add 40 vol , NOT 20 to lift.
