Best hair makeup removers 2022


What should you look for in a hair makeup remover?

Cassie Siskovic of Alfaparf Milano Professional explains that the first step in determining which type of bleach to use is to understand the type of color you need to remove. “You can figure this out by thinking about your hair color history and then making a decision with that in mind,” she says.

Before moving forward with eliminating hair color at home, Siskovic recommends thinking about the following:

  • If you used a pastel colored conditioner on your lighter highlights/hair.
  • If you have used a received color/color that has become darker than expected.
  • If you’ve been coloring your hair for years and want a change.

If you fall under example one or two, you can remove the color from your hair with a clarifying shampoo. “Usually in these cases the outer layer of your hair (the cuticle) is already open because your hair has been bleached or colored,” she adds. Since the cuticle is already open, the color you want to remove has a good chance of coming out easily.

If you fall into example 3, it’s likely that clarifying your hair won’t remove your color. “The more consistent you are with hair color, whether it’s the same color or changing it, the more stained or pigment-laden your hair becomes,” says Siskovic. At this point, the best option for you might be to go to a salon.

What should we avoid?

Siskovic suggests avoiding chemicals, bleaches, dish soaps and detergents around the house. “You’ve seen the horror videos on TikTok of people tearing out chunks of hair from damage – we deserve better than this,” she says. It’s best to try a safer method, like using a clarifying shampoo or visiting a salon you trust.
