  • There are many tips on this remedy already but I just want to give you my experience of trying out this method!

    Some tips are different to others but it's basically the same effect

    So here it is..

    My experience of using the Vitamin C and shampoo remedy to 'wash out' or 'strip' the hair dye out of my hair!

  • Okay. So I'm naturally blonde but I decided to experiment with some colours. I dyed my hair red, then brown then wanted to go blonde.
But I used 'medium brown' and this was the result. 
I sort of liked it for a while but got bored of it and so I reached for a way to strip the colour.

  • Step One.
Take any shampoo you have at home. I heard anti dandruff works best but I had none at home so I settled for Head & Shoulders. 
I didn't have enough of the one in the photo so I had to use a menthol one. 
PS. Don't use a minty shampoo because it might sting your head a little.

Take a few Vitamin C tables. I used ones that dissolve first but they didn't work so I settled for these.

Get a bowl and a dye brush of you want to use one. I ended up not using it and just putting the Vitamin C and shampoo 'paste' on with my hands.

  • Step Four.
Take some Vitamin C tablets and crush them into a fine powder.
I used a mortar and pestle because I had one at home but you could also use a plastic bag, a sealable one is best, and crush the tablets up with a spoon or rolling pin. Pretty much anything suitable for crushing.

  • Step Ten.
Cover all working area in an old towel, bag or anything you don't mind getting a bit dirty.
Start putting on the mixture into your hair. I started from the bottom up and just used my hands(I should have wore gloves). To make sure I covered all of my hair I massaged the mixture into my hair

Cover your hair in cling film. It traps the heat and helps the mixture to work faster.

  • It is recommended to leave the mixture in for 1-2 hours for it to work. I left mine over night. The next morning I hopped into the shower and rinsed out the mixture for about 5-10 minutes to make sure there is no Vitamin C left. I washed my hair with Shampoo twice and then used a good bit of Conditioner, left it in for 5 minutes and then rinses it out.

  • This is what's hair turned out like. I was shocked that the colour changed so much. I would defiantly recommend this method to anyone who doesn't want to bleach their hair but want to have a lighter shade or strip a dark colour out.

  • From having really Dark Brown, almost Black hair, using the Vitamin C and shampoo turned my hair Light Brown with a few Shades of Red near the roots.

  • Pros.
    This method works really well.
    It doesn't damage hair as much as Bleach would.

    Cons.
    I found that my hair smelt a little funny after using this method but a few washes with nice smelling Shampoo and Conditioner got rid of the funny smell.

  • So that's my experience with the Vitamin C mixture. Thanks for Reading, I hope this helps!
