How to wash out just for men if it is too dark

Updated April 17, 2017

Blowing out your cuticle with volumizing shampoo to speed up the process of lightening hair dye that is too dark can be easy. However, it may not remove all of the colour pigment. Removing Just for Men hair dye can be achieved at home, but it is always good to consult a salon stylist or barber before trying to do it yourself. Whatever you do, don't panic, because you have at least 48 to 72 hours before the hair colour attaches to the cuticle.

  1. Wash hair in hot water with volumizing shampoo. This will help enlarge the cuticle to aide in the removal of Just for Men hair dye. Lightly, towel dry hair. Dish washing liquid can also fade hair dye.

  2. Heat olive oil in a pot on the stove until warm-hot. The oil just needs to be warm to the touch. Try not to boil it, as you are using this as a hot oil treatment on your hair.

  3. Cup your hand and pour a small amount of olive oil in, like you would shampoo, and rub throughout your hair. Be sure to saturate your hair with the hot oil. Alternative to the stove method, apply the olive oil to your hair, wrap your hair with cling film and blow dry for a five minutes to heat the oil. Leave the oil to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

  4. Wash olive oil from hair using a volumizing shampoo or dish washing liquid, then towel dry.

  5. Tip

    A colour remover kit can be purchased from a local pharmacy or beauty supply store to remove hair dye. Or you can visit a local salon in order to have the product chemically stripped from your hair.


    If you do not succeed in washing the hair dye out, consult a barber, stylist or call Just For Men directly for further questions and concerns.
