6 ways to dye your hair

Megue explains that the best way to dye your hair is to look for a professional. He / she will carry out the evaluation of the texture, chemistry and state of the hair to thus suggest the appropriate process for removing the pigments. Among the techniques of how to remove dye from hair, the hair stylist separated the following:

1. Pickling


“It consists of discoloring the colored part to the desired lightening background to put the other color on! It is the process that most attacks the hair, but if you don’t want to lighten it too much, it is very effective and you get rid of the unwanted color all at once! ”, Explains Megue.

2. Wicks


If your hair is damaged and you can’t handle a total bleaching procedure, Megue explains that gradually lightening with strands is an option. In this way, the work is done gradually until reaching the desired shade.

3. Anti-residue shampoo


Megue comments that, although going to the professional is the best choice, there are options such as anti-residue shampoo to clean the color.

“Use cleaning shampoos so that this color fades with each wash. Do not pass any more product, nor toner or other colors. The anti-residue shampoo does not completely remove the color, but it will help to fade and facilitate the color change if the client wants to lighten it ”, he explains. The professional warns that this type of shampoo ends up drying the hair, so a recovery treatment should be part of your routine!

4. Whitening


According to the hair stylist, there are some products that lighten hair in one or two shades, which are lightening shampoos. They have the function of fading the color and are less aggressive than other techniques. But she cites a contraindication: “it is contraindicated if you already have natural root growth, as it will fade your natural background too, usually to a more orange color”.

5. Shampoozada


This technique consists of mixing the bleach, a low volume hydrogen peroxide and a shampoo. It should be applied to wet hair. Megue explains more about the effect: “according to the break time and the amount of dye in the hair, it is possible to lighten from one to three shades. It is more aggressive and should be applied only to the part that has the coloring, with great care ”.

6. Bicarbonate


“It really ends up doing a good cleaning in the color with the continuous use, but, because of its properties, it leaves the hair very opaque and lifeless”, he explains. So be careful when investing in homemade recipes that change the color, okay?

The hair stylist explains that other techniques, such as vinegar and milk, are not indicated for removing hair dye. This is because vinegar has a very acidic pH and the effect when using it is more related to maintaining the color. Milk, on the other hand, is good to soften the green tone that stays in the blond hair, when we go to the pool and have contact with chlorine. But, for discoloration, milk has no effect, huh!
