Yes, you and me both! I have old highlights and orange-colored hair on the new growth from trying to dye it blonde when the highlights grew out. I dyed it again in a week (something I would NEVER do unless truly desperate) and just got more orange instead of blonde.
I've dyed my hair for many, many years and never had this problem. My mother recently got red hair from a blonde formulation too. What's the problem with these new preparations? Neither of us ever had this happen until recently. I think they're phasing out the peroxide and putting milder ingredients in--but at the expense of not getting hair lightened to the extent it should be! Personally, I'd rather have something more harsh done once, than damage my hair twice in a row and still not get what I was after. This is the worst my beautiful hair has ever looked in my entire life!
