I read an old request for taking the yellow color from white hair and one person recommended using peroxide mixed into conditioner. Has anyone tried this and what amount should I use? Thanks.
I am an ex hairdresser that used to tell my clients with this same situation to use laundry bluing ( Mrs. Smith's ) dilute to 30% strength1 ounce of bluing to 3 ounces of warm water disolve and add to your favorite shampoo. Shampoo your hair as normal leaving on an extra minute or two then rinse as normal and style, this may take a couple of washings but it will bring the white out and the yellow will be sent on vacation.
Could it be that you are outside a lot? Sun can easily yellow white hair. Certain medications can also yellow your hair and of course being around smokers does the same thing. The blue/violet shampoo will help some, but not always enough because some hair is more porous than other. Do you let it sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing it out?
Am also a former hairstylist ;-)
It could be medications causing the yellowing. In any event, I don't know if the product is still on the market but call a local beauty supply and ask if they carry Roux Ultra White Minx Color Rinse. You put it on after shampooing and leave it in.

Can I use hair bleach to get rid of the yellow in my natural white hair?
The yellow is probably from your water. Mix some baking soda with your shampoo and rub in for a minute or so. Rinse
My friend had the most beautiful white hair I ever saw. She used the vinegar treatment described here once a month (it says once a week, but she only did it monthly).
She was model beautiful until the day she passed. Sadly we lost her much too young. I miss her!

I have complete white hair. I would like to know how can I clean the yellow stains from it. In other words, bleach it without using chemicals, if possible.
