I Colored My Hair Too Dark; How Do I Tone It Down?

The simplest option for toning down overly darkened hair is to wash the area with a clarifying shampoo that has a drying effect. This method would strip away some of the color, leaving behind a lighter shade. Another alternative is to create a homemade solution by mixing 1 teaspoon of baking soda into an everyday shampoo. Lather it in, then wait 15 minutes before rinsing.
