Silver Ombre Hair From Blue ♥ Remove Hair Color in 1 Wash Tutorial ♥ Wengie

new-hair-yt

I love unicorn hair!! It’s so fun and who doesn’t love having pink, purple, blue or green hair! What about removing hair color? Switching from color to color can be quite troublesome and there is often the “awkward” stages where your hair color is half there but half not. Blue will turn green or teal. Pink may end up looking peachy and you’ll have blotchy patches because lets face it, who washes their hair that evenly??

When I decided I wanted silver hair from my bright blue I knew I had to shampoo…a lot to get the color out. But with my filming schedule – I would honestly just have nice hair all the time so I went in search of a magic shampoo (recipe shared below and in the video) that will help me cleanse the color before I headed to my fave hair dresser Stevie English hair.

Going to the hairdresser with cleansed hair will save them so much time and damage as well, since the more color that is removed the less likely they will need to bleach and strip it out of your hair. In my case not all color was removed and bleach was used and so I had to get the chop – but I absolutely love how it turned out!!

Watch the video below for a walk through of how I achieved my new hair color including how I washed the blue out and how they turned it into this amazing color! I also show you the progress shots as well after 1 shampoo etc.

Removing hair color tutorial

To remove hair color your can use this at home recipe. When using this shampoo out formulation to remove hair color you’ll find that it removes 5-10 times faster than normal. I got the same result I would normally get by washing my hair from 5-10 times.

Shampoo out recipe

10-15 tablets of Crushed vitamin C
2/3 cups of Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
2 tablespoons of Baking Soda (it’s a natural and gentle bleach)

Optional:

3 tablespoons of Dish washing liquid
3 tablespoons of 20 Vol Developer

Once you’ve mixed your ingredients together it will look moussey and airy because of the Vitamin C powder and baking soda. Work the formula into wet hair and use your fingers to really work it in. Give it a good scrub and keep lathering it. Once it’s well lathere you can squeeze the excess foam out and add more product until your lather stops being colorful. To get more removal you can pop a shower cap on and let this shampoo sit for another 10-15 minutes before washing it out. Wash it out using warm water.

Once you’ve finished shampooing you’ll realise your hair will feel quite dry so follow up with a deep treatment. I used coconut oil for this or you can use any deep treatment conditioner to bring your hair back to life.

Much love,
