Ways to Wash Off Hair Dye After Unsuccessful Coloring
If you choose your dye on your own and decide to color your hair at home, this might lead to disastrous consequences. The color might turn out to be completely different from what you had expected. Sometimes, the curls get a green, yellow or red tint — even though a different tone was clearly visible on the package. If this happens, it’s not the manufacturer’s fault.
Here are the reasons why your hair color might turn out to be different from what was shown on the package:
- Previously the curls were dyed in tones that contrast with the most recent one.
- The hair was strengthened with henna or other herbal remedies after which becomes challenging to repaint it.
- Some part of the curls is over-dried by frequent dyeing. Then, it becomes brittle and porous. In response, it absorbs the dye differently.
In beauty salons you can remove the hair color to eliminate the consequences of an unsuccessful procedure. To use professional services, it’s necessary to make an appointment. It’s safe to say that you wouldn’t want to leave your home with strange-colored hair. Keep in mind that there are other ways to wash off hair dye on your own without leaving home.
Here are the different ways you can restore the color of curls after an unsuccessful coloring:
- Mix thick shampoo and table vinegar in a 1:1 ratio. Apply it to your head, comb and wrap it with a film. Rinse after half an hour. After using a permanent dye, you will not be able to wash off the color dye completely. Repeat the procedure in 2-3 days or use another method.
- Heat 50 ml of burdock oil in a water bath. Apply the oil to the dry strands and roots of your hair and distribute the oil evenly. Leave it to rest for an hour and rinse it off using shampoo for the oily type of curls.
- Mix 40 ml of sunflower oil with the same amount of medical alcohol. Apply for 10 minutes.
- Pour 30 ml of warm water into the container and pour 2 tbsp of soda with it. Mix the ingredients, then apply it to your hair and cover it with a bag. After 2 hours make sure to rinse your hair.
- Heat 200 ml of kefir to 40 degrees. Add 5 g of yeast and 1 tbsp of sugar. Mix it and leave it in a warm place. As soon as the mass begins to rise and foam, apply it to your head for 3 hours. Wash it off with shampoo.
- Grind 2 small lemons with a thin peel in a blender. Rub the resulting mixture into the strands and roots of your hair and leave it for an hour. Rinse it without shampoo and apply a nourishing mask.
- Grind 10 tablets of acetylsalicylic acid to a powdery state. Add 45 ml of warm water. Apply to each strand by spreading the mixture with a comb along the entire length of your hair. After one hour rinse your head.
Usually, it takes 2-3 procedures to wash off the dye after an unsuccessful hair dyeing. It’s advisable to use different methods and take a break of 3 days between procedures.
