How To Remove That Blue Tint From Your Hair?

Whether you’ve recently dyed your hair blue or there is a blue tint in your hair because of a weird chemical reaction between the bleach and your existing hair color, it’s not a pleasant thing to look at. The easiest method of getting rid of this is by going to a hair color correction specialist. However, for those of you who want to try something themselves, here are some ways by which you can remove that hue in the hair for good.

Removing Blue Tint From Your Hair

Bleach Bath

If you want a quick fix to get rid of the blue tint in your hair forever, then a more subtle and less damaging way is by using a bleach bath. A bleach bath essentially means that you’re mixing bleach with a bit of shampoo. The result will be the elimination of all of the unwanted hair dye but without the harsh effects of directly using bleach.

For this, you’ll need to mix the same quantities of 30% developer and bleach powder. Once mixed, add in some shampoo and make a slightly runny paste. Apply the mixture like hair dye on your wet hair. Then, let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Afterwards, shampoo and condition like normal. Your hair will be free of the blue hue.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is amazing for removing stains, which is exactly what the blue tint is. First, make a mixture of half a cup of baking soda and 5 tablespoons of water. Now, lather your hair in your favorite shampoo and leave it on for 5 minutes. Before rinsing it off, apply the baking soda mixture to the shampooed hair and massage it in for 5 to 10 minutes. This combo works wonders.

Vitamin C Tablets

Vitamin C is a very common color-removing agent and it’s used in a lot of dye removers. If you have a blue tint in your hair, then vitamin C will be your best friend.

All you need for this trick to work are some vitamin C tablets that are easily available at any health food store or a pharmacy. You will need 1 to 2 tablets if your hair is medium-length.

Crush the tablets up and put them in a non-metallic bowl. Next, you will need some shampoo. Use a bit more than normal because you’ll need to dissolve all of the vitamin C tablets. Mix the two until there are no clumps in the mixture and apply it on wet hair. Work the mixture nicely into each strand and then clip the mane on top of the head and let the mixture sit in for about 45 minutes. You can also use shower cap.

When the time is up, you can wash your hair and use a conditioner afterwards because your hair might get very dry. Repeat the process, if necessary.

White Vinegar

Vinegar rinses are also great for removing any type of tint in your hair and you can use this rinse as many times as you want.

Mix in a quarter cup of white vinegar with a lot of water to make a rinse. After shampooing your hair, saturate your hair completely in this rinse making sure to avoid the eyes. Leave the rinse in your hair for about 15 to 30 minutes and then rinse your hair. The acidic property of the white vinegar will strip away the blue tint in your hair.

Hot Showers

If you want to get rid of the blue hue in your hair then using hot water is an easy solution. You might have heard that hot water fades out the dye quickly. Well, this is exactly what you need.

Hop in the shower and turn the temperature up until it’s hot, but not scalding. Shampoo your hair normally and rinse your hair off with hot water. This will melt the dye away and you will see the results quite quickly. The best part is that it’s not damaging at all, especially when compared to bleach.

Expose Hair To The Sun

Whenever you get your hair dyed, you’re always advised to not go into the sun too often. Well, in this case, you want to do the exact opposite. If you want to get rid of the blue tint in your hair, then the blazing ball of fire will help you out a ton.

Simply leave your hair down and let it soak in all of the heat and sun. The UV rays are going to naturally lighten the hair and in a couple of sessions, you will see the difference. Just make sure to use a sun tan or sun block lotion for your skin.

Chlorinated Water

Chlorinated or salted water can also help to fade out any hair dye or tint in your mane. Chlorinated water is very harsh on the hair dye and it will strip it away super-fast. If you don’t have an ocean near you, then you can certainly make a trip to the nearest pool.

The salted water is going to fade out the blue tint in your hair and you will be surprised by the sudden change. Keep in mind though, that this might take a couple of tries before the color completely fades away. So, hang in there.

Hot Blow Dry

Heat also makes hair dye fade away quickly. Use a shower cap to snuggly tuck all of your hair in and use a blow dryer on a hot heat setting and distribute the heat all over. Once 15 minutes are up, you’re going to let the hair sit in the heated cap until it cools down naturally for about 25 to 30 minutes. You can, then, hop in the shower and wash your hair like normal. Once you repeat this process, you will see that the majority of the blue hair dye will be gone.

Bath Salts

Bath salts are another great way to lighten the blue tint in your hair, if you don’t have access to an ocean or a pool near you. If you have a bathtub, then this trick will work super easily.

Fill the bathtub about 20% with water and add in a lot of bath salts that you get from a spa supply store. Once the salt is dissolved, dip your hair in this saturated water and let it sit there. After 30 to 40 minutes rinse the salty water off and shampoo and condition as usual. The blue hair dye will fade away with a couple of uses.

Dishwashing Soap

If you’re really in a pinch and don’t have anything that’s mentioned above on hand, use your dishwashing detergent. Yes, you heard it right. It’s harsh, it has the chemicals needed to break down a permanent hair dye and this is exactly what you need.

Use it like a shampoo and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes before washing your hair. Keep in mind that a dishwashing detergent is extremely drying on the hair, so always use a conditioner if you don’t want frizz to take over. Moreover, try this trick only if you can’t try any other method.


Blue can be a hard color to remove from the hair, but luckily, these tricks work like a charm. If you want a safe way to remove the blue tint from your hair, head to hair salons specializing in color Rockville.
