Can I ‘lift’ my hair color at home?
I used a Natural Instincts color (darker shade) on my hair a few months ago. It still has a reddish tint, but I believe it’s as ‘washed’ out as it’s going to get. I would like to lighten my hair up a bit to a golden brown (my hair is a natural medium brown color), but I have no idea what a good product to use would be. Any tips? Thanks in advance!
You can do one of two things, to remove most of that dye. Links have been moved, might have to type them out.
1. By using Tide detergent with shampoo
2. By shampooing you hair mix with a bit of Dawn.
Here’s an example what hair stripping will do to your hair.
It is worst than hair dyes. “I accidentally dyed my hair this awful black, stripped it, and now it is this crunchy crispy mess!”
Hair strippers are chemical treatments which are intended to strip out artificial color pigment with less risk or damage to the hair. The chemicals used are called reducing agents.
Certain ‘metal’ strippers containing sodium sulphoites are sold for reducing hair dyed with metallic dyes, as these dyes react violently with tint stripper containing hydrogen peroxide-the subsequent reaction may cause so much heat that the hair gets dissolved.
Google hair dyes & cancer also. There are those who tan & smoke all their lives & do not get cancer, but there are those 2nd hand & 3rd hand smoke who do and are currently on oxygen because they can’t breath or have cancer. Same with hair dyes.
Here’s a new article I found re: henna, which is supposed to be better for you than reg. box dye. It’s a good read!
Example of one who’s hair is falling and stopped growing:
“my hair had been bleached many times and can’t grow past a certain length
its also falling out . i stopped bleaching it.
i just need to add lenght! but if i can stop it from falling out..that be great too”
I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80’s & 90’s. I’ve known people in their 30’s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70’s.
