About this deal
Do not worry about initially exposing warmth from a removal. The exposed warmth is a secondary matter on which I will advise. In the first instance, get a good amount of the brown colour removed from the hair. When exposing natural white hair, you will generally need two Decolour Remover applications one week apart. You tend to need two applications because (over time) artificial colour pigments in darker hair colourants can build up on the hair. Therefore, you will likely require two Decolour Remover treatments to get the pigment build-up out of the hair. You do the two removal treatments seven days apart because this will allow the hair chance to normalise after the first treatment making the second treatment able to work at the correct level within the hair.
That’s a common and easy issue to fix. Usually with blue shades, the blue comes out but it kind of warps the natural yellow in the hair with a mild blue tinge, this causes a mint green colour – as you say, like you get from a swimming pool. Some people found that they could leave their hair that way after de-colouring it. The remover works evenly without leaving any blotches and uneven coloured spots. But if you are not comfortable with the final colour, you can use a dye immediately after. What we like about it:
Hair Colour Removers like Decolour Remover (red box) cannot technically work on semi-permanent fashion colours. However, whilst Decolour Stripper will get the unwanted purple shade out of the hair, it will also lighten the underlying base, so you would lose your balayage which is sitting under your purple colour. I know Decolour Remover can generally get semi-permanent reds out of the hair (due to the red colour molecule). However, what tends to happen is the red will flush out of the purple shade and leave a blue behind. If the blue (left behind) is a fairly standard blue, applying a pastel pink throughout this hair will create a lavender result. However, if the blue appears more like a mint green, the pastel pink turns this mint green colour to a beige blonde.
So, I have been researching how to remove the hair dye build up, and am confused. Do I use a clarifying shampoo, then a remover, or a stripper, and then a light ash blonde hair dye? My fear is that if the dye is removed, or my hair colour is stripped, I may end up with an uneven ginger colour, at which point I wouldn’t have a clue what to do…Once these bonds or links have been dissolved, the artificial colour molecules have nothing to hold them in place and since they are smaller now, they can easily get out of the hair shaft through the cuticle. I’m not unrealistic, I know it’s a constant work in progress. Even then, let’s face it, I’m sure I will get it to the desired result I want right now but as the progression happens so does my desired result being, in two weeks time I will undoubtedly desire a result a lot lighter than I am wanting today.
