Is there anything I can do to lighten it up?
Guys, do you find black hair/pale skin even remotely attractive?

Wash it well with shampoo and conditioner about every other day (any more and you're stripping your hair of much needed oils and such) and it should fade within two weeks at most.
A lot of the time when you dye your hair the color will come out a few shades darker than it said on the box, ways to prevent that? You can experiment but I've never really cared so I don't actually know- a first for me as far as hair coloring goes.
I do know the only way to chemically lighten your hair is to bleach it, or find some shampoo (if it exists) that strips color treated hair. But again you risk lightening your natural hair color more than you intended and once it's lighter it won't go back, you have to wait for it to grow out again.
