Hair Dye Removers And How To Use


Hair Dye Removers And How To Use

Hair coloring is truly fun. Nobody likes it dull and drab. That is exactly why colors are there for. So if you can have colors in your clothes, in your makeup, in your accessories then why not some on your hair.

But in many cases I have seen that people are ultimately not happy with their hair color. Some have dyed their hair shades lighter than they would have liked, some have dyed their hair shades darker than they would have preferred. Some have dyed their hair with a completely different shade. Basically they are unhappy with the way their hair color looks on them.

So, you too made a hair color mistake? Don’t worry. It happens. And removing it is not impossible too. So here is a list of ways by which you can remove your hair color.


lemon+hair dye remover
With very high levels of acidity, lemon is a healthy and natural cleaning option that will get stains out. If you add some lemon juice to shampoo, lather up and let it sit for 4-5 minutes. Rinse. It will lift some of the color. You will need multiple washes to completely get rid of the color. You can also apply lemon juice to your colored strands prior shampooing. Leave it for an hour and rinse with lukewarm water.

Baking Soda

Baking_Soda and hair dye removers

Try using a tablespoon of baking soda in warm water and pour through dry hair. The solution is mildly alkaline and will open the cuticle layer allowing the dye to wash away more quickly. Follow with shampoo.

Anti-Dandruff shampoo

Anti-dandruff shampoo has a stronger formula than any other normal shampoo. It would remove dye from your hair quicker. You can also add lemon or baking soda with your dose of anti-dandruff shampoo.

Vitamin C tablets

Take Vitamin C tablets and powder them. Make a smooth by mixing the powder with water. Apply on the desired sections of hair, cover with a shower cap and wait 30+ minutes. Follow with shampoo.
You can also mix the powder with your regular shampoo, apply to damp hair, wait for 5 minutes and rinse off.


Vinegar rinse can really help you get rid of “unhappy” colors. The acidity of vinegar will remove your dye in a few washes. You can directly apply vinegar to your hair or can even mix it up with your shampoo or oil.


Simply see your professional colorist and ask him/her to bleach your hair for you and then again dye your hair back to its original/desired color. You can do it at yourself as well. The bleach will lighten your strands and then you can easily dye your hair to a darker color.

Color Remover

There are many color/dye removers available in the market. These removers are here to get you back on track in pretty easy steps. For example, L’Oreal Paris Colorist Expert Haircolor Remover. The salon-inspired formula removes permanent hair color, even salon color, and leaves your hair immediately ready to re-color with a new shade. Corrects color mistakes in easy steps. To brighten up your look, a professional colorist would first use a hair color remover on your old permanent dark color. Now you can go from dark to lighter at home.

Clothing Detergent and Liquid Dishwasher

I would personally never recommend anyone to use detergent on hair. But if you really want to use laundry detergent on your hair, you can use it by diluting it in water. Apply on hair and rub up a soapy lather. Lather your hair for at least a couple of minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.
