Make Color Fade Faster If you’ve changed your fickle mind and want another colour faster than it fades or if you’ve had a disaster (it can happen) we have a few tips that we’ve learnt over the years. Wash your hair as much as possible. Each wash will begin the colour fading process and the more you do it, the more it will fade. Ditch your regular shampoo. Use anti- dandruff or clarifying shampoo or shampoos for greasy hair -not shampoos for dry, damaged or coloured hair. Hot water opens the hair follicles and is guaranteed to speed up the fading process. The salon. Or finally, the sensible option – go to a hairdresser who can professionally remove the unwanted colour.
