: A month ago I put wash in shampoo color in my hair.It says it washes out in 24 shampoos.I've washed my hair at least 4 times a day since.I tried baking soda,lemon juice,clarifying shampoo,tomato paste,salt and other dyes.My hair is naturally a strawberry blonde and its now a medium brown.I've put 2 applications of permanent golden blonde dye on it which lightened in fairly well,does anyone think this will affect the rest of the wash in color coming out? And I've considered stripping my hair and putting my natural color back in,is it true that stripping will leave your hair dry and straw-like? I know this is probably how celebrities go from dark brown to blonde all the time and I dont see where their hair gets ruined from stripping.Please respond with some advice,thanks.

To begin with, a 'wash-in' color still contains peroxide which will allow it to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. It will not 'wash-out' in 24 shampoos, as some of the color will still remain locked into the hair shaft. Instead of trying everything you can think of to remove the excess color, it might be advisable to have a hi-lighting service done at a salon. this will allow the color to grow out normally without any undue damage and dryness from 'over-coloring.' If you feel you need to remove some of the color, you can mix 1/2 oz. shampoo, 1 oz. peroxide, and 1/2 oz. conditioning treatment to your dry hair and leave on for 30 minutes. Repeat weekly as necessary until your hair is the desired lightness. Keep in mind that any color you purchase through retail outlets that contains 2 products that need to be mixed together will penetrate the hair shaft -- one of the products is the color, the other one is the activator for the color.
