How to remove Matrix Colour Sync Hair Dye

Updated December 12, 2018

Removing Matrix Color Sync hair dye is best done immediately after the hair is dyed. If it has been less than 24 hours since your hair has been dyed, all you need is multiple washes with very hot water to remove most, if not all, of the dye. If it has been more than 24 hours, there are several home treatments that can effectively remove the dye as well.

  1. Wash your hair with hot water immediately if less than 24 hours have passed. The hot water will remove most of the Matrix Color Sync hair dye. Wash your hair a few times in one day for best results.

  2. Apply a hot oil treatment to your hair. Make sure to coat every strand and leave in your hair for 30 minutes. The deep conditioning and heat will help to remove Matrix Color Sync dye.

  3. Use a hair colour remover on your hair. Many beauty and hair brands offer hair dye removers in their product line. Make sure you follow the instructions on the bottle carefully before use.

  4. Squeeze the juice from a fresh lemon and apply it all over your hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap for 10 minutes, then rinse it clean. The citric acid in the lemon is a natural lightener that has the ability to remove hair dye.

  5. Apply a generous amount of white vinegar all over your hair and let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes. The acidity of the vinegar will help remove the Matrix Colour Sync hair dye.

  6. Bleach your hair to remove the Matrix Colour Sync hair dye. This is a process that should be done by a professional at a salon. Remember that bleaching is extremely damaging to your hair and should only be done when absolutely necessary.

  7. Tip

    Go over each strand with a fine tooth comb to make sure the hot oil/lemon juice/vinegar covers every strand.


    Avoid burning yourself with the hot virgin olive oil treatment by testing it carefully with your finger before applying.
