Tip #3: Wash your hair more often
For the color to fade naturally , it is also sufficient to chain the shampoos.
Initially, you can wash your hair every day.
Repeated washing prevents pigments from penetrating into the hair fiber.
However, quickly reduce the frequency of these shampoos so as not to damage and dry out the fibre.
We also recommend that you use the mildest, most moisturizing shampoo possible for repeated washes.
And for rinsing, do it with fairly hot water (not too hot of course). The heat will help remove the color from your hair.
Washing and rinsing your hair with lukewarm water will eventually lighten your hair.
Tip #4: Add baking soda to your shampoo
Baking soda is very effective in bleeding color.
If it is a chemical product, it remains ecological because its manufacture does not involve any waste.
Known as bleach, it can therefore easily attack the color of your hair.

Tip 6: The nourishing mask after the shampoo
After your clarifying shampoo, you can also apply a nourishing mask . This nourishing mask can be done once or twice a week.

For example, if you did a black coloring or a very light coloring like red. You will have to go to a professional to get rid of it.
Your hairdresser must first exfoliate to remove dark pigments until you get a lightening background.
This removes dark color pigments and reveals the color you had before permanent hair color.
