Getting red out of hair - June 7th 2014, 12:14 PM

Hi guys,

So I dyed my hair a reddy-brown colour several months ago and now I can't seem to get rid of the red.

I've tried dying over it with black but I could still see red tints in it and I've tried using hair stripper but that didn't get rid of them either.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't really afford to go to the hairdressers to have it done so I was wondering if anyone knew of any tricks to use.

Hey Cara,

Here are some tips that you could use to remove the hair-dye:

1) Make a paste from vitamin C tablets and water and using it to wash out your hair

2) Buying hair color remover such as L'Oreal hair color remover from any local store. If you chose to do this, be sure to carefully read the instructions.

3) Dandruff shampoo(such as Head and Shoulders) with baking soda

4) Hot Oil treatment-Before applying the oil, be sure to thoroughly wash your hair. Then warm up some coconut oil. Then apply the oil to the roots and tips, and wash your hair again with shampoo and conditioner.

Hope this helps!
