Getting Hair Back to Natural Color After Dyeing

I have natural blonde blonde hair. I want to dye it blue, but want it to go back to blonde after awhile. Can I and if I can how? Any advice for dyeing it? Thanks!

Hair coloring.

  • When dying hair, blue most stylists need to strip the color out of your hair.
  • Considering your hair is already blond this might be a problem for you.
  • Just adding the blue dye to your hair might not give you the results you are looking for.
  • Some people's hair ends up green or some other color.
  • I would actually seek advice from a stylist before attempting to do this on your own.
  • As for dying your hair back to the natural color it shouldn't be necessary.
  • These types of dye normally wash out of your hair in about 6 to 8 weeks. If you wash your hair more often the dye starts to fade quicker.
  • Personally, I would seek professional advice before I would dye my hair blue.

How long do you want it blue? My hair is currently blue and I use semi-permanent colour for when I'm tired of it.


It lasts about six weeks. If you want something shorter term, go with pure temporary.

You do not say just how long you want this to last but any type of hair dye other than permanent color will fade a little with each shampoo (shampoo for color treated hair) or faster fade with regular shampoo.

  • There now available several different types of non-permanent hair dyes and from most reports they all work a little different so review the types and see which one may work best for you.
  • All of the following information came from a professional colorist web site:
  • Temporary Color - Temporary hair colors serve more to make a fashion statement than to actually dye the hair. Temporary hair colors do not contain peroxide or ammonia, so there is no color-lifting involved when these dyes are applied to the hair. The coloring particles in such formulations are also very large, so they theoretically cannot permeate the hair shaft. Color will gradually wash out from the hair in just a few shampoos. Again, theoretically, temporary color will wash out. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Hair that has a hair cuticle that has been damaged by heat styling can be very permeable. This may allow the temporary dye to settle into the hair shaft. In such cases, temporary hair color may be much more permanent than desired. However, after repeated washes, the color may lighten considerably since its first application.

  • Semi Permanent Color - Semi Permanent dyes contain smaller particles than temporary color, so it more easily seeps into the hair shaft. However, since semi-permanent dyes contain only the smallest concentrations of peroxide and ammonia (or sometimes none at all), this color may not last considerably more than temporary color.
  • Demi Permanent Color - Demi permanent colors contain a low concentration of ammonia and peroxide. They can lift the base color of your hair about one shade. However, the purpose of a demi permanent hair color is not to lighten hair. The peroxide present in these formulations serves to make the hair more porous so that it can absorb the color particles. Demi permanents may work well, but this color will wash out after a few months.
  • After reading your question it appears that Demi-color may be what you are looking for. Check it out for yourself.
  • Here is some information about caring for your hair with color;

  • Color Preservation - To keep your shade lasting as long as possible, try to reduce the frequency with which you shampoo. When you do wash, use shampoos and conditioners formulated for color-treated hair. Every time you wash your hair, you're fading the color a bit. If you can stretch your every-other-day routine to every three days, your color will last that much longer. You can also use a color depositing shampoo to enhance your color and maintain richness. Be sure to protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or using products containing SPF.

Most important suggestion: Do a strand test before coloring and look at the color in natural light to ensure it is the shade you want.
