Hair Color Correction 101

Not so happy with how your new hair color turned out? You can help rectify that at home with a little know-how. For example, you can try using a color fading shampoo or haifr color remover (more on those below!). Keep in mind that you can also visit a salon and have a professional colorist correct your hair color. A pro will have an arsenal of tools they can employ in terms of hair color correction, so that’s always a solid option. But today, we’re here to talk to you about how to correct your hair color at home. We’ve got hair color correction tips for you, coming right up.

The Best Hair Color Correction Tip if You Used Semi-Permanent Hair Color

If you used the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color to color your hair, you can use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Fading Shampoo to help fade the color if you’re unhappy with your new look or you’re simply ready to try a new shade. (Speaking of new shades, check out our tutorials on unicorn hair and mermaid hair for some of-the-moment inspiration!)

The L’Oréal Paris Colorista Fading Shampoo helps wash out color. This clarifying shampoo helps accelerate the fading of any L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color. The more you shampoo, the more your color fades. To use, massage the color fading shampoo into wet hair, lather, then rinse.

The Best Hair Color Correction Tip if You Used Permanent Hair Color

Colored your hair with permanent hair dye but not thrilled with how it turned out? Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colorist Secrets™ Haircolor Remover, which helps remove unwanted permanent hair color in one simple step. Your hair will be ready to color again immediately after use. Make sure to follow the included instructions for best results. Just make sure to purchase your next hair color at the same time, because the removal of permanent hair color will not restore your hair to its natural shade. This hair color remover formula is formulated to work on permanent hair color—even salon color. Ready to color your hair again? Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme, L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference, or L’Oréal Paris Féria, which are available in a variety of gorgeous shades.

How to Care for Colored Hair

Once you’ve corrected your hair color and are happy with your dye job, it’s important to pay attention to how you’re caring for your hair. Switch to a system of hair care products—including a shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask—that are formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
