Fading Hair Color After Dyeing

Fade your hair color with the Vitamin C method. This is widely reported to fade color quickly and without causing too much damage to your hair. *Crush Vitamin C tablets with a pestle and mortar or in a plastic baggie with a rolling pin or hammer. Move the crushed tablets to a small bowl and add a tablespoon of water to make a paste. Apply the paste to your hair and leave in for about 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
*Alternatively, you can add the crushed Vitamin C to clarifying shampoo. Apply mixture to your hair and cover your head with a shower cap. Leave in
for about 20 minutes, then rinse.
Squeeze lemon juice onto your hair to lighten it. This is one of the safest ways you can lighten your hair, in terms of reducing chemical exposure. *Squeeze fresh lemon juice into a container. Apply to your hair and cover with a shower cap for a few minutes. Then, wash hair as usual using warm water to rinse the lemon juice from your hair.
*You can also try creating a spray mixture with moisturizing agents like almond oil to lessen the drying effects of the acidity of the lemon juice.
*Spraying lemon juice on your hair and then spending a few minutes in sunlight before rinsing it out will also help lighten your hair color.
