Also Remember the Following Tips While Removing Hair Color

  • Color removal should be done within 3 days, so that the color does not settle in hair.
  • Washing hair should be done in hottest water, as cold water seals in moisture in cuticles and also the color. But the last rinse should be of cold water.
  • Do not expect results to show from the first day itself. It is a gradual process which is hair friendly and would do much less harm than coloring the hair.
  • Also, avoid bleaching hair in order to remove the hair color. This would do more damage to the hair.
