How to Remove Just for Men

Updated April 17, 2017

Hair colour normally takes 48 to 72 hours to set into the cuticle. When experimenting with the removal of Just For Men hair colour consult a professional stylist. However, there are some home remedies that may help remove or lighten the colour you have applied, and are commonly found in your kitchen or can be purchased at your local pharmacy.

  1. Contact a professional stylist within 48 to 72 hours of application. A stylist can use a professional hair stripper to remove any unwanted colour.

  2. Buy a hair colour remover at your local pharmacy. One 'n Only Colorfix is made to remove permanent hair colour, and Clairol's Uncolor System Haircolor Remover is a semi-permanent hair colour remover that Clairol says is gentle and quick.

  3. Camouflage hair colour with new hair growth by having your hair trimmed by your stylist. Trimming your hair at home is a cheaper alternative, but a stylist may be able to use styling methods to mask the colour more efficiently.

  4. Rinse or wash your hair in hot water because it can fade chemicals in hair dye and speed up the removal process.

  5. Shampoo your hair in hot water with volumizing shampoo. Volumizing shampoo opens the cuticles in your hair and allows colour to be released. Dishwashing liquid can also strip colour.

  6. Make a hot oil treatment using hot extra-virgin olive oil to strip the chemicals in Just For Men. Do not soak your head in boiling oil. Take extra care when heating the oil. It just needs to be warm to the touch.

  7. Tip

    Performing a strand test on your hair before colouring can reduce the risk of having to remove the colour from your hair entirely.
