Get a clean canvas for your next hair color!

If you're reading this, chances are, you most probably have colored hair and you want to remove it so you can switch up your hue. You may have blue locks that have faded into a not-so-flattering green hue or pink hair that just won't clear out even after how many washes.

Of course, the best way to get rid of your current hair color is by having it professionally corrected at a salon. But if that isn't an option for you, don't worry—hairdresser Brad Mondo has your back. He tried four different ways to strip the dye from your locks, and the best part is, you can do them all at home. Read on to know more:

Brad used a mannequin's freshly dyed hair as his canvas, and his starting color was a beautiful deep blue. Check out the before and after results of each method! (Editor's note: Since these hacks involve strong stripping agents, make sure to use a deep conditioning mask once you're done.)
