How does hair colour remover work?
Hair colour remover is a bleach-free, damage-free dye eraser, that safely removes permanent tints from your tresses. Long-lasting dye is usually held inside the hair shaft by molecular links, known as colour pigment, upon application, and this is what the remover seeks to dissolve. It leaves your natural pigment intact and doesn’t cause any damage to your untreated hair. Suitable for use at home, it’s safe and super convenient.
Unlike conventional bleach, which can also be used to strip hair back to its natural state, colour remover contains no harmful ingredients, leaving your locks feeling lovely and luscious. In not depriving the hair of its original pigment, remover can also be used multiple times, especially to remove colour build-up, without causing damage. Perfect for a first-time dye user, it requires no previous experience, and only takes a maximum of 20 minutes to work.
How should I use a colour remover?
To start, shampoo your hair twice. Rinse and towel-dry your hair, as it should be clean and damp prior to application, and open your remover kit. Each usually comes with two separate bottles, containing an acid solution and a sulphur-reducing agent, which will need to be mixed together to start the chemical reaction. During the application stage, it’s important that you work fast, as the product can swiftly start to lose its effectiveness once combined.
Using a tint brush, immediately apply the formula to your hair, using your fingertips to connect with harder-to-reach areas. Once your locks have been well-saturated, place the processing cap over your hair, and apply medium heat for 20 minutes. This helps to open the cuticles and accelerate the process. Finally, rinse off the remover. Each shampoo should be followed by a long, warm wash, as cooler temperatures could cause oxidisation to occur within the strands themselves. Here at OnBuy, we offer a range of fabulous products from a selection of well-respected, industry-leading brands (such as Wella), so explore the collection today!
Hair colour remover FAQs
Is colour stripping bad for my hair?
In terms of damage, colour removers/strippers are far more forgiving on your hair than bleach. They work by entering your hair shaft, removing the artificial pigment deposits from hair dye while leaving your natural colour intact (with very minimal damage as a result). It's worth bearing in mind that you won't be able to restore your hair to its natural colour with a stripper if you bleached it before dyeing.
How can I remove permanent hair dye?
If you're not happy with your colour or simply want a new look, you can strip the dye using a colour remover. From there, you can correct the colour with a toner, leave it as it is, or dye it again. We recommend waiting a while before colouring your hair again and treating it regularly with a nourishing conditioner.
How long does permanent hair colour take to fade?
Usually, permanent hair colour will stay on your hair until it grows out. The pigmentation may fade over time, but colour deposits will still remain on your hair. If you want to remove the colour entirely, use a hair colour remover.
Will baking soda damage my hair?
A lot of home colour removing hacks suggest using baking soda instead of a store-bought alternative. While this can be quite effective, baking soda has a pH of 9. This is higher than the scalp and could strip your hair of natural oils, leading to breakage. For the safest removal, always use a high-quality colour stripper.
