Act fast. The quicker you move, the less time the dye has to penetrate your hair, so hop to it! The ideal window of time for hair dye removal is no longer than three days after the dye job.
Soak several cotton balls in alcohol then rub them over your hair. Stay away from your scalp area but soak the rest of your hair. Let the alcohol remain for five minutes.
Pour the oil into the bowl and heat for about 30 seconds. It should be warm, not sizzling hot. Massage the oil into your hair on top of the alcohol. Oil helps to dissolve and break down the dye.
Pop on the shower cap then blast your oiled head with the hair dryer. Heat fades dye and helps the oil penetrate the hair. Blast your head for about 30 minutes. Your arms may get tired but the results are well worth the effort.
Take off the shower cap and hop in the shower. Soap up your head with a strong dandruff shampoo. Massage the shampoo in then rinse with hot water. The harsh chemicals in dandruff shampoo strip hair color.
Check out your hair color. If it has faded to a color that works for you, call it a day. If it's still too dark for your taste, move on to the color fading kit.
Open the color fading kit. Most kits include plastic gloves and fade solution. Follow directions closely for application then leave on your hair for the designated time before rinsing out. Check out your freshly de-blacked 'do.
