How to Remove Semi-Permanent Dye| 5 effective Ways

Semi-permanent hair dye is a popular option for how to change your hair color permanently. Similarly, it’s a great way to test out how you feel about different colors before committing. And it also makes it easy to switch colors if you make a mistake or tire of one shade.

There are many ways that people have found helpful when removing semi-permanent dye. But there is no perfect method that will work for everyone.

Similarly, we’ll discuss five effective ways that may help remove the semi-permanent dye from your hair. And let us know in the comments below if any of these have worked or not.

Henna

Henna has the potential to remove semi-permanent hair dye from dark hair.  Moreover, you cannot use it as a home remedy on lighter colors because it will not affect them at all.

However, when using henna, you should avoid getting it in your roots and scalp area. Or else it may turn orange.

Use The Clarifying Shampoo

 A clarifying shampoo is a type of shampoo that removes product buildup, excess oils, and dirt from your hair. It will not remove the color or dye in your hair. But it can help to strip away any residue left over after using other products.

Washing with Vinegar

Washing with vinegar strips out all types of built-up gunk on both natural and dyed hair. The more often you wash your hair with this method. The less likely it is for there to be buildup again.

Make sure when washing with vinegar that you do such cold water instead of hot as heat only closes off pores and does nothing else good for your locks.

Mix baking soda and water to create a paste-like consistency

You can mix baking soda and water to create a paste-like consistency.

Simply take two parts of baking soda with one part of lukewarm water in the bowl. Mix it until you create a creamy as opposed to an abrasive consistency.

Then apply this mixture all over your damp hair. Focus on getting some into any tangles you may have in your locks. Leave for at least 15 minutes before rinsing out thoroughly. (It’s best if you can leave it on longer than this).

This will increase how often that buildup comes out from your strands. And should also do wonders for removing any residual dye left behind by the semi-permanent hair color. But we’ll talk more about how to remove those later.

Contact an expert to get rid of the semi-permanent hair dye

If you try to remove your semi-permanent without luck, chances are you will call a relative or friend. So don’t go into the kitchen or Google for “homemade remedies.” What you should actually do is go to your professional stylist. Because they have the right training to find ways to correct any hairstyle mistake.

Everything is different, but one way is to use a stain remover to remove unwanted pigments from the hair color list. But if the dye doesn’t come out for some reason, don’t worry.

Even if you can’t get rid of the dye, your beautician can find creative ways to cover up the bad dye job.

Try before you dye

What’s the best way to avoid getting stuck with unwanted semi-permanent hair dye? Well, don’t try the new overall color until you test it out.

Sometimes, you may add a particular dye of your favorite interesting color to realize it might not be right for you.

Similarly, when looking for bold, bright colors, it’s essential to test a strand before filling your head (literally). The added benefit of the lock test is that you can understand the degree of damage to the hair caused by the dye.

There are many other ways to avoid mistakes, such as spicing up your hair before adding bright colors.

We recommend trying the colored wig you are considering before using a new hair dye. Some hairdressing salons have a few on hand so that customers who aren’t sure about their new hair color can switch to their new hair color first.

Benefits of Removing Build up from Semi-Permanent Dye

Furthermore, if you have an extremely sensitive head of hair, then consider getting some olive oil mixed with lemon juice into a paste-like consistency before applying it all over your damp locks.

Use a deep conditioning treatment after you’ve removed the dye from your hair
