Default Removing pravana vivids

I colored my hair purple with pravana vivids Removing pravana vivids-uploadfromtaptalk1349974488540.jpgand now I'm ready to be done with it, anyone know how to remove it safely? I've been shampooing it 6x a day, color is coming out in the suds but when its dry it looks just said bright as it was before. My hair is usually not shampooed and in very bad shape from doing so. I'm trying to stay away from chemicals but thinking I may have to dye it darker. Any suggestions?

I actually did this back in February - Pravana Purple over about 6 months of burgundy dye. Boy was my hair PURPLE.

I became really sick of the tub being stained purple, so I used Loreal Color Zap from Sally's Beauty Supply to remove it -

L'Oreal - L'Oreal Technique - L'Oreal ColorZap Haircolor Remover

It took one application and my hair was bright orange. It was enough for me to dye over it an ash medium brown color that looked fairly decent. Still came out really warm looking, but it was no longer burgundy or purple. No one knew the difference!

I didn't use Color Fix because it's never really worked for me before. The second picture I included was the color after about two weeks. It was much warmer in real life, but still decent looking. And I had removed A LOT of red tones from my hair underneath the purple.

Vivids are long lasting colors designed togradually wash from the hair with each shampooing. In the case that you are ready to changecolors and there is still a lot of the Vivid color present, you can try tolighten the tone by using Pure Light and Zero Lift. Once the color is reduced it will give youmore options in color choice to cover them.

I shampooed and shampooed my hair and though it faded a bit my hair was so dried out and and couldn't take anymore so I colored over 90% of it with a dark demi-perm (pravana brand)and and added a bit more vivid to keep the split bang I like so much.

I'm glad you found an option that worked for you! I like your split bang idea. I'd been putting pravana purple highlights in my hair before I dyed it totally purple, and really liked the look. I probably should have kept it there, but the purple stained tub and shower curtain was a mess! :-) Luckily, my hair wasn't too dried out after I did the lifting, and I left my hair alone after that color wise for awhile to let it heal. Your demi color looks really nice!

Removing pravana vivids-uploadfromtaptalk1350269337106.jpg here is a somewhat better pic. Thanks. Yeah my shower, sink, towels BATHROOM is purple too but I don't think just the small area left to have fun with will be as bad. I have never had my hair this dark and I absoutly love it. Now I can get back to just enjoying my hair rather than trying to "fix" it.

the only way of getting out pravana is to dye it darker since it is a cuticle stain and i think it is the best one on the market not even bleaching your hair will take it completely out it will just make it into a pastel color. So your best bet is just to dye it to a dark brown
