This post about removing black hair color is always timely because the process can be so time-consuming and needs to be explained to a client. Whether it was the result of an in-salon service or the black color came from a client doing some at-home experimentation (and no shame or blame, especially in a COVID-19 world), we know that those black color molecules are stubborn little guys. It's always good to read one expert's solution for kicking them out of the hair strand.
Here are Manelli’s instructions and formulas. And peep the whole video (14 minutes) above for her thorough process and breakdown.
