You could try to get highlights of your natural color, so when your hair grows out your original color should blend better with the red you've colored with.  I think a salon could help you do this with it looking the most natural.

**Hair type: 2a, which is wavy and fine.
**Color: Naturally dark brown, currently dyed reddish brown.
**Length: below shoulder length

gah, NEVER bleacj out color, use a color remover first!  if you bleach over color it could re activate the dye.  Ive seen a girl bleach her hair black before.  Use a color remover, you can get them at a local beauty supply store like sallys.  THEN you can bleach it up, use a blue bleach to counter act the red. 

But in all honesty, your very likely to f*** up your hair.  go to a salon.

 The hardest pigment to get out is artificial pigments, especially red pigments, you'd need to use bleach + 20vol for the scalp and bleach with 30 or 40vol for the mid shfat & ends, it won't all come out but you could get it to an orange stage and then use a demi toner to tone it to a normal color, like use the Clairol Complements Demi- permanent 6Ash or 8Ash + the Color Prompter that goes with it to tone it to a neutral blonde. - Mags Kavanaugh ASKMAGS.COM

Hello, I have naturally light blonde hair and have been dying it at home auburn red for over a year.  I'm getting really fed up having to constantly re-colour it every month (red fades sooo quickly) but have no idea how to go back to my natural colour. can someone help?
