  • For what reason are you trying to remove color? Is it too dark? Are you starting over? I could give you a few ideas.

  • I have never even heard of that, so I have nothing to offer. Maybe just recolor your hair with whatever color you are wanting to change it to.

  • I have never tried that. I have used it for a lot of things. I give my dog a bath in it because it helps keep fleas off of her.

  • You need to elaborate just a little more as to why you want to use dawn dish washing liquid to remova lhair color in your hair. Dawn is a greese removal type liquid not a stain removal type liquid. It would strip your hair of all its essential oils that make it pliable. Please do not use that! If your trying to strip your hair color you should consult an experienced beautician. You can use salt or baking soda mixed with your shampoo for a light stripper, but dont over do that eighter as the salt is very drying and both the salt & baking soda are abrasive materials which also strip the oils from your hair. Let a professional treat you hair would be my recommendations. Dont use the DAWN!

  • yeah i'm with Lacy and Iraqivetwife. Step away from the dawn. you can even go to a beauty school and get the color lifted for a good price.
