Safe Color Stripping
After having my hair red as a result of deep conditioning colors for months I decided I wanted to change what I consider to be my base color. I call it my base color cause I consider deep conditioning color to be my main color that I then will hair shadow on.
I decided that I wanted to change from red so I pulled the red out of my curls by mixing 1 cup of head and shoulders shampoo with one pack of vitamin c emergency packs. You may need more so I would just do it as needed and mix one cup of shampoo to one pack unless your hair is short and a half of cup of shampoo would be better.
I applied it and let it sit for 10 minutes and then washed out. I did this three times.
Here is the color before:
Here is how my curls looked after:
Above is a washngo and below is finger coils I pulled the color out with every intention of coloring my hair purple but after seeing the color it left I decided to roll with it for awhile. If you try this method make sure to deep condition after application. This method will also lighten your natural hair color as well. If you have no color in your hair but still choose to do this method it will lighten your hair over time.
