do NOT use color lifter. That will lift ALL of your hair. I would recommend washing your hair a few times with dish soap (dawn will do the trick.)  it’s a salon trick if someone overtones highlights or something- it rips the color off as it strips the hair. Be prepared to use a lot of good conditioner after!

Use cheap shampoo…when I worked in a salon the hairdressers always recommended head and shoulders.  Red fades pretty quickly anyway (especially if it’s over blonde) but cheapo shampoo will speed it along.

@blondie_bride:  i dont know if any salons around you do malibu treatments. but it is something i used in a salon i worked at a few years ago. i want to say it was like $20 for the treatment (i know prices change by state) it is a product they put on your hair that will strip away any build up and leave your hair shiny and healthy again. usually resulting in lifting hair color (not natural color but dyed color) about 2 shades. this is a product we would use on people who have hard to color hair, swimmers, opps home color jobs…. might be worth finding something like that, that is done in a salon.

@blondie_bride:  Extra shampooing will help speically if you have shampoo speical for blondes as for example if you have the purple colour shampoo its sposta neutrilize red tones …. so ya just wash it more that always makes red bleed out … red really does fade super quick if you don’t use a colour stay shampoo so switch to speical blinde shampes nothing colour stay and it should lift faster wash it every day

@blondie_bride:  I tried clarifying shampoo, dandruff shampoo, dish soap, etc,  and they didn’t work for me. what finally did work was laundry detergent! it seemed to trump all of those other soaps in respect to harshness. 

I only achieved a tiny bit of immediate lightening with the laundray soap, but just enough to take the harshness off. 

@Kissed_by_lightning:  I’ve used those purple shampoos. they tend to only tone really light blond shades. they don’t really have enough pigment to make a difference on any other color.

awe well i noticed they faded my colours but maybe my hair is just really not good at holding a colour when i bleach it once they needed to dye it brown 3 times to cover over my blonde and i still saw my highlights come back a month later just much less lol

@nerdybird:  agree…buy clarifying shampoo..apply it and leave for 5 mins..repeat…and do it 3 days in a row….don’t forget to use deep conditioning treatment or really thick conditioner after that..
