How to Take Highlights out of Hair


Many people experiment with hair highlights and later determine the highlights are too dark or too light. Finding the right shade of blond for your hair can add a bit of depth to your hair. Finding the right darker shades for light-colored hair can create more contrast for your hair. If you are trying out different colors of highlights, you can take those highlights out until you find the perfect shade for your hair.

Things You'll Need

  • Deposit-only hair dye
  • Deep conditioner with a low pH level
  • Hair brush
  • Gloves

Determine your hair's natural color or the natural color of the bulk of your hair. Find the hair dye that is the closest match. Some stores have hair swatches you can use, or you could ask a stylist for a free consultation to determine the best match.

Use deposit-only color when picking out your coloring brand. It will condition your hair as well as correct the color. This is simple to find in most stores, and it doesn‘t damage your hair like bleach does.

Apply the hair dye to your highlights with your hands. Wear gloves. You might also choose to apply the dye with a brush. Allow it to set for 10 minutes.

Work the dye into the remainder of your hair, once you've achieved success with the highlights. Leave it on for about 10 or 15 minutes. This makes your hair all one color again.

Wash out the color and apply the deep conditioner. Work the conditioner into your hair thoroughly with your hands. This will soften that processed feeling out of your hair.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you used henna dying products, don’t use this process. You should soak your hair in mineral oil instead.
