How Do You Remove the Ash Color From Your Hair?

To remove ash color from your hair, wash your hair thoroughly, apply a homemade lemon juice conditioning spray, rinse with baking soda, and use a light golden blond hair toner. Be sure to rinse and condition hair following the toner.

  1. Wash your hair

    Wash your hair with shampoo, working the shampoo into a rich lather. Wash a couple times to strip away as much of the ash color as possible.

  2. Make the lemon juice conditioning spray

    Boil 1 cup water, and steep two bags of chamomile tea in the water for 10 minutes. Cut three lemons in half, and squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon almond oil or coconut oil to the lemon juice. Add the chamomile tea, and mix thoroughly. Pour the solution into an empty spray bottle, and spray the solution on your hair. Make sure you cover all the strands, and leave the solution on for up to 30 minutes.

  3. Rinse your hair with baking soda

    Wet your hair, and work a handful of baking soda into your hair. Massage the baking soda into the strands of your hair for a few minutes, and then rinse well.

  4. Apply a light golden toner

    If there is still ash color in your hair, use a light golden blond hair toner to counter the ash tones. Follow the product instructions to apply the hair toner. Rinse and condition hair after using the toner.
