Ok my hair was dyed blonde before, then I dyed it silken black. Then I said, I want to dye it burgundy red, it is only taking at the roots now, but the rest of my hair seems to not budge. First I used lightest blonde to get my hair lighter, it was dark brown. Then I applied the burgundy hair dye by clariol textures and tones it only took at the roots and made the rest of my hair black looking, how weird. Then I decided ok, wait a week later or two to dye my hair again by loreal hi color magenta with 30 developer. It didn't do anything, but only take at the roots again.
I also make sure, that I have applied it to the middle of my hair on down first, before I did my roots. It looks like I am ready to give up on red burgundy hair, because my hair seems to not budge for anything. I would have gotten color corrector, but a lot of people says that doesn't do any good either. I want to dye my hair with out damaging it and it seems like it want do. Please help ladies! I do not know how to get the rest of my head red and burgundy. Please can anyone tell me how?

You need to bleach the crap out of it to get a colour like that to take properly... especially since you've already dyed it black. You can try putting on the lightest, harshest bleach you can (ice blonde or similar) but it'll damage your hair a lot and there's no guarantee. You can try waiting a bit for it to grow, or go to a professional salon and seeing if they can help you.
The other thing I'm wondering is, are you leaving the blonde bleach on your hair long enough? It should be extremely light when you're done.0

You dyed your hair black prior to the constant dying.. black is a hard colour to dye over you should of bought a prelightner to help strip the black out then dye it the colour you wanted
Now don't do a thing for a few weeks get your hair in good condition and get it trimmed to at least shoulder length if it's already that length get all split ends cut out
No heat, no curling, no constant brushing not a thing as damage is now done.
Hair masks every week for 4weeks
Then try a prelightner.. you have to not only put it on the hair but take parts of your hair and rub it down the hair a few times like you were styling it with hair gel to make it spikey, ur hair will lift the black out so it will go a weird colour
Then get your dye and leave it on for only half the time needed to develop as your hair is now porus and will soak in any colour it comes into contact with
I'm a hairdresser I do my own hair but that's ok if I ruin my own hair!! Your hair isn't mine and if you want to try above do so. I recommend a hair salon and they might not even touch your hair unless it's in good condition.. a good hairdresser won't even
If you don't have the money for a salon, there are colleges, beauty schools whatever who look for *models* to practice on under watchful eye of professionals for near enough pennies.
