    Due to the usage of bleach the hair just altered its colour into the one you tried to put on it. You cannot remove it at once, you have to wait for your hair to grow off. The new hair will bring your natural colour back and relieve your pain of ruined highlights.

    If your hair is black then go for dark brown or the shade which is the best you think go with your hair. Remember that you have to buy demi permanent or deposit-only hair dye for you.  It is less damaging than bleach.

    Wear gloves in order to avoid colouring your hands along with hair. Apply dye on highlights with brush or hand. Let it set for 10 minutes.

    Apply on the remaining parts of the hair which you have not highlighted before for 10-15 minutes, to make it one coloured. It is up to you whether colouring only highlights or all hair, as it will not look that bad if you treat your dye as another kind of highlights. Later on, wash your hair thoroughly and remove the colour. Apply a deep conditioner to soften your hair.
