^I had to bleach my turquoise out, and even after a full bleach it only turned a very light pastel blue, but since raspberry is a strong pink, it would probably cover that :)

How often would you do one of these fading techniques?
I used h&s and washing up liquid yesterday which shifted enough colour for other people to comment on the colour change, but being as my hair was coloured with deep purple I've got a long way to go. Hoping to get some Lush Juicy when I go to town in the next week.

So, Everyday? Everyone other day?

It's entirely up to you and how quickly you want your hair to fade, everyday for long term could end up with some serious dried hair so it would still be good to give your hair a lil rest for it's natural oils to help moisturise.

I tend to do it once/twice a week if I need too but it also depends on how often you wash your hair too I guess.

I also only do it once a week if I'm trying to force fade, because it does dry out your hair quite a lot.

I usually only wash my hair once or twice a week, but was going to wash more often to fade. Think I'll stick to force fading once or twice a week when I'd usually wash.
Thanks.

^Same, so I usually do stuff every other day/every 3 days and use some conditioning stuff that also fades my colour afterwards.

I just want to say thank you for the tip about I love juicy!  *1*
I combined it whit vitamin C and it was the most effective indigo fading concoction I've tried so far.
I think it's the acidity that does the trick, indigo doesn't play well with acids and when I rinsed after the second back to back treatment loads of greenish tinged water sloshed out of my hair.YEY!

Hot oil treatment with virgin olive oil is also very effective and makes hair soft and shiny.

I hope more indigoed people find this thread and can get their hopes up for removing the horrible permanent indigo.

i followed some examples on here and elsewhere online and first i tried the vit c which i left for about 20-30 mins and kick started with a bit of heat from my hair dryer. This lifted my hair about two shades then today i have just done the laundry powder and shampoo one. It was totally awful, irritated my scalp (which is sensitive) so i couldn't wait for it to be over.

Used medicated shampoo to soothe my scalp and utterly tonnes of conditoner afterwards.
I can hardly believe the results. i have lightbrown with a reddish tint and little blonde highlights coming through. Far from where i want to be but it doesnt look like im fading my hair or anything unusual!!

My hair before all this was a giant buildup of natural blonde with extensive highlights. about 4 applications of directions in various reds on top, one round of majicontrast and two box dyes in dark dark brown.

Going to try the vit c treatment this afternoon, hair is currently directions neon blue in places mixed with brown/dark brown at the ends (not natural), we'll see how it goes and I'll post back when done!

I've used Original Source shower gel in the past. I used the lime one and it stripped colour really well :)

I wish I didn't know this but.....


Hedrin (the nit treatment) fades colour amazingly. My hair had been dyed with directions cerise only a week before, then one of my darling children brought some some visitors. When I rinsed it out in the morning almost ALL of my colour was gone, just a few pink patches but mostly yellowy orange.

Which hedrin treatment did you use? :)

I'm trying to fade out my directions poppy red to go violet, I justtried the vitamin c tablets mixed in with anti dandruff shampoo. And it worked great! My hair is about 4 different shades of pink, the ends are a light peachy pink (because I dyed over a dark yellow bleach job) the roots though are still quite bright because they were bleached almost White. I think I'll try to fade again in a couple of days because it was quite drying.

I was gonna post this in the Good Vibrations thread, but it felt like it would be more appropriate here.
At 6am I put a butt load of fairy liquid in my hair. After a couple of hours the bubbles were a little peachy orange coloured, but no big difference. I wanted a lot more fade so I was a bit disapointed, even though I knew I should've expected it. Wrapped my hair in a towel so I didn't get it all over my bed, lay down and watched some TV.
Woke up 4 hours later, realized that I'd left it on WAY too long, rushed to wash it all out.

The water has never ran so orange with dye before, not counting washing for the first few times after dying.

My hair's now a lovely shade of blonde in some areas, but it looks muddy against the bright yellow that Napalm Orange went to. Directions Flamingo Pink doesn't seem to have been touched by it, but I know I can bleach most of that out in one go so that doesn't worry me all too much.

The only down side is that I have to be careful with brushing it. My scalp's a tiny bit sensitive and a tiny bit itchy, but I think that's a fair price to pay for the results. :)

want to fade atomic/cupcake mix. I know the methods are drying, but less damaging than bleaching or bleach bathing. But if my already kinda damaged hair is dried out from fading, it will get damaged further right? Whats the best way to restore moisture so that my hair doesnt suffer? I have 3min miracle but i dont want to fake it with silicones. Would kpac or cocnut oil be best? i heard kpac can be drying as well...

I left coconut oil on my hair overnight and the silvery/lilac colour seemed to disappear slightly.. There's so many methods on here to fade your hair colour, I left my special effects purple toner on my hair for too long so now it's got lilac hues in it not to mention baby pink bits from where I had atomic pink originally so I wanted to dull them down for a bit and was gonna try a fading technique tonight.. What would be the best one? When I had my atomic pink hair I didn't know H&S shampoo fades hair and used it all the time for my dandruff lol.. It never faded it though.. So anything nice quick and easy I can try now :D thanks xx

Should the hair be wet or dry when applying vitamin c and H&S?

Thanks guys. I did it with damp hair, but boy I did not expect the mixture to be so fluffy! I had to change bowl because it kept running over (fluffing over? XD) it was crazy! And then I did a hot oil treatment with coconut oil, but couldn't get it out of my hair so I slept on it and washed it now.

I'm nervous for the results, and since my hair was wet and dark with oil last night I couldn't see any change. I'll get back to you ;)
