What is a hair colour remover?

Our hair colour remover is your perfect solution when you want to remove your current hair dye without the harshness of bleach. Here at Hairhouse, we've got just what you need to target and remove artificial colour, leaving your natural hair pigment untouched and your hair in great condition.

Using a colour stripper or colour stain remover is ideal when correcting unwanted colour stains from direct dye or a bad tint job. Whether you want to return to your natural shade, change from warm to cool tones or fix a colouring mistake, our hair colour removal products at Hairhouse are designed to help.

How does a hair colour remover work?

Our hair colour remover comes to the rescue when you want to undo your permanent hair colour or semi-permanent hair colour without harsh treatments. It works by breaking down the artificial colour molecules in your hair, making them small enough to be washed away, all while preserving the integrity of the hair cuticle.

Our colour removers are formulated to ensure that only the hair dye is removed. This means you can safely transition from one colour to the next or correct a colour mistake without worrying about damage. That’s why we recommend using them to prepare your hair for a new colour or return to your natural shade.

How long should I leave hair colour remover on my hair?

When using a hair colour remover, the amount of time it needs to sit on your hair can vary. Generally speaking, it’s a matter of several minutes. However, the exact duration depends on the specific product you're using and the type of hair colour you're trying to remove.

For the best results, we always suggest checking the instructions on the product packaging. Each colour remover in our selection comes with detailed guidelines to make sure you achieve the desired outcome without compromising the health of your hair.

How can I safely use a hair colour remover at home?

Want to switch up your hair colour or correct a dye job that didn’t turn out as expected? We’re here to guide you through safely using a hair colour remover at home.

Our experts have put together some easy-to-follow steps to help you safely say goodbye to that unwanted hair colour:

  1. Wear gloves and lay out towels to protect your skin and clothing from potential stains.
  2. Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo a day or two before removing the colour to make sure the colour remover works as it should.
  3. Apply a cream around your hairline and ears to prevent staining your skin.
  4. Follow the product's instructions to mix the colour remover.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly through your hair with a comb.
  6. Use a hairdryer briefly to activate the colour remover more effectively. Just be cautious not to overheat your hair.
  7. Leave the colour remover in your hair for the time specified on the product packaging.
  8. Rinse your hair well with warm water to remove all the colour remover and the dissolved dye.
  9. After rinsing, apply a hydrating conditioner to help restore moisture and nourishment to your hair.
  10. Continue to look after your hair in the following days with hydrating and repairing hair treatments to keep it in top condition.

Can I recolour immediately after using a hair colour remover?

We suggest giving your hair a little breather after stripping the colour. Waiting at least 48 hours before applying new dye allows your hair's cuticle to settle back down. This wait time helps ensure that your next colour application is true to the shade you desire.

Your hair changes after colour removal. Once the old dye is gone, your hair becomes more porous than usual, meaning it's ready to soak up anything you apply. This openness can lead to your hair grabbing onto the new colour more intensely than expected, often resulting in a darker shade than you're aiming for.

If you're in a rush and don't want to wait, consider choosing a colour two shades lighter than your target. This can help counteract the hair's readiness to go darker post-removal.
