Go to a salon, they should be able to fix this with no problem.  They will just need to put a dye with a green base on the root area, then maybe pull it through the rest of the hair, depending how drastic the difference (this can still be blonde, or brown if you want).  I wouldn't advise doing it yourself since there's a chance your hair could wind up two different shades since its only your roots that are orange.  But a salon can see what your hair looks like and should be able to take care of it.

Orange eh? Well to neutralize orange the exact opposite color would be blue base....so Ash at the same level on those orange roots will turn them brown.....your goin to hafta monitor it during processing though because it will depend how porous your hair is and the heat from your scalp that could speed up the process.

Obviously you want to match it up with the rest of your hair....what color is the rest of your hair and maybe we can better help you?

It's hard to tell without seeing your hair but from the sound of it orange roots you would want to use a blue base Ash at the same level as your haircolor to neutralize it and turn it more brown.

If you went with a green base I don't think that would be your best option unless the hair you were trying to fix was more of a red than orange. Most haircolor lines have moved away from green base colors and instead gone with blue-violet. Now many times stylists need to make green base by mixing a blue base and gold base in equal parts to get green base to neutralize red.

Tell us more so we can better help you.

well if it's blonde already you could tone it with 10 Volume and a color like Goldwell 9GB and then leave it be. Still keep deep conditioning your hair to put that moisture back into the strands.

9GB is a very common color that is a very appealing blonde from Goldwell.

OK well depending on the time you've had that conditioner on it shouldn't be several hours. Conditioner is to put on then wash out. If you want something to leave in your hair...then use a leave in conditioner you spray on.

They stopped making green bases?  That's too bad.  I actually used to use them to quick fix orange roots when I was going blonde even though the roots weren't red, then use violet over it for the yellow.  The blue and blue-green bases didn't seem to be as efficient on the orange. I know colorwheel wise they should be, but it took 2 times of dying it with blue to get rid of as much orange as when I used green, though maybe it was just the brand I was using (which at the time was Wella for the blue-green, and I think I tried Clairol for the blue).

Clairol still makes green bases.  Moongold and Moonhaze.
