Kiwi's love to colour their hair, its nice to feel like new when we leave the salon or get out of the shower after applying a hair colour. Often we become dissatisfied by our natural colour and want to change our look. And one of the simplest ways to achieve this is by changing the colour of our hair with the use of hair dye.
So why would we want to remove hair dye from out hair?
However, there are times when our chosen hair colour does not sit well with our overall appearance. For some reason, there is something wrong...
- Perhaps it doesn't match the color of our eyes or it doesn't enhance our skin tone.
- Sometimes t here are occasions when we just feel like being whimsical and want to have our color pink or red or green in which case the colour may fade and not look so flash after a few watches.
- Sometimes we miss a patch
- Other times our hair dye reacts with something already in our hair (like putting something to ashy blonde hair and getting a green results) and turns out a different colour then we desired.
These are the times when a hair colour remover will come very handy!
What are the types of hair colouring remover can we use?
There are basically two types we are looking at.
One is the conventional type, which is what probably most professional hair colourists will use. And these are products that contain bleach or other chemicals that have been the standard of ingredients for removing hair colour. These work fast and will perhaps remedy most hair colouring mistakes, but the major setback is it not only strips the colour from our hair, it uses bleach to remove all colour pigment from our hair, usually leaving a brassy or blonde end result which needs to be dyed over.
Two is the hair colour remover that does not contain bleach. One such product is MYHD Hair Colour remover it works to break the chemical bonds between the dye and the hair shaft, so just the colour can be washed out. It does not use bleach or harsh chemicals and is olive oil based to help nourish your hair as you remove you colour.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using the conventional bleach based type of hair colour remover?
The main advantage in using this type of hair colour remover is you can use it either for a permanent, semi-permanent and demi-permanent hair colour. It is also safe to use at home and you can change your hair colour anytime you wish. However, because it is made with bleach and other harsh chemicals, it can leave your hair follicles damaged making it look dull and lifeless. It also strips all dyed and natural colour pigment from your hair so will need to be dyed over.
How about for hair colour remover that does not contain bleach?
The major advantage of this type of hair colour remover is the safety to use and will not leave your hair feeling dry and lifeless. Because this does not contain bleach and other harsh chemicals, this can be used repeatedly without worrying of damaging your hair. MYHD colour remover only removed hair dye from your hair, not all the natural colour, so it will remove the darker dye reveal the colour underneath.
What are the brands to consider?
One popular brand that you can take a look at is MYHD hair colour remover. It does not contain bleach and other harmful chemicals and it can be used to remove permanent hair colour.
How does it work?
The process takes place when you apply this product. It shrinks or breaks down the color molecules so the colour can be easily washed out from your hair.
In order for it to perform its task efficiently, MYHD recommends that you wrap the hair in cling wrap while the product is in your hair then wait for 20 to 25 minutes before rinsing. You can do this up to two times a day if you see that the result is not yet acceptable. Then rinse off for up to 5 minutes using warm water. Repeat shampooing 2 to 3 times.
Now that you know what are the pros and cons of each type of hair colour remover, the choice is up to you. Choose wisely by seriously considering what is most beneficial.
