Correcting Hair Color You Don’t Like

Almost everyone at some point has opted for a change of hair color or highlights. A specific color may seem like a good idea at the time, only to discover that it doesn’t compliment your skin tone. Or, you may just think it looks hideous and isn’t at all what you were expecting.

There are ways to address the problem, but it’s imperative that you speak with the colorist before doing anything to your hair. Different formulas and techniques can produce different results. Hair can be reprocessed, but can damage locks. Removing color is a highly complex process.

Tell your colorist immediately if you’re not happy. The sooner the problem is addressed, the easier it will be to correct it. The best way to get the results you want is to think carefully and plan your color change. Discuss the change you want to make with your colorist. The professional can and will work with you to arrive at a color solution that’s right for you.


Your hair is most vulnerable to color leaching immediately following a color treatment. Washing your hair a few times will help in fading the color, but it won’t eliminate it completely. The method works best for brunette and red shades.

Clarifying Shampoo

This is a good remedy if you discover you’ve received an uneven color treatment or highlights. It will reduce the pigmentation saturation.


Brunette shades that aren’t rich enough, reds that aren’t deep enough, and blondes that aren’t warm enough can benefit from an at-home gloss treatment. The difference will be subtle and won’t produce the same level of change as a salon treatment.


This is perhaps one of the easiest ways to remedy brassy highlights or those that need to be lightened. A shampoo with a purple or blue tint has neutralizing pigments that can help.
