How to Remove Henna from Hair

Dying hair with henna has become a popular method for permanent hair coloring.

Henna is a permanent hair dye and many salons will not put chemical dyes on top of henna, so if you want to change your hair color or return to your natural hair, you may have to try to remove the henna yourself. You might be able to go to the salon for help after stripping or fading much of the henna from your hair.


Fading Henna with Oil

1. Buy a large bottle of oil. Anecdotal evidence supports using mineral oil over other types of oil, but you could try a combination and see what works best for your hair.

You may be able to make your own oil solution out of olive, argan, and coconut oils.

You will likely need several applications, so be sure you buy enough to cover your head several times.
