Default How to remove semi-permanent dye from hair?

So, I've had my hair dyed with Manic Panic's Hot Hot Pink for about 6 months now, and I want to dye it back to brown. What is the best way to fade out this color without using bleach? and would I be able to put brown hair dye over the pink? Also, what's the best brown hair dye to use? I'll post a pic so you all can see what color my hair is currently.How to remove semi-permanent dye from hair?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1370836989.199380.jpg

Some pinks are notoriously difficult to shift, not sure if MP Hot Hot Pink is one of them but Atomic Pink is notorious, would be worth running an advanced search on a hair dye forum. You could try soaking in a harsh shampoo like Head & Shoulders or a peroxide free colour remover like Color Ooops.

Brown right over hot pink will go a strange shade and the pink wil lshow through, are you bleached blonde under that pink? You may find many browns go a little ashy or green over blonde, you may want to try a more auburny shade than you think you want. I would run strand tests on shed hair at every stage, don't experiment on your whole head. Or strip the pink out at home then have a professional hairdresser do the brown.

a good thing I noticed:

I dye my hair for 7 years now. It's always a reddish brown and one time it turned out waaay too red.
I then used a dandruff shampoo because I heard that it helps fading colour really quickly, and yes it did...
So you can maybe try using dandruff shampoo?

I bought a bottle of head & shoulders last night, so I'm hoping that it'll fade a good amount after a week or so of using it. The hair underneath my pink is bleached blonde, so I'm hoping that won't have a bad reaction with the brown coloring. If I did a burgandy brown, would that blend well with the pink?

Nobody can tell you the answer to that, depends how much pink you get out and the darkness of the brown you choose. You will need to do strand tests on shed plughole hair and it may be that you waste a bit of money trying a couple of different products.

Swimming pools and beach water do it for me. =)

Luckily, I was able to go over the pink with John Frieda's Deep Cherry Brown. Very happy with the results (: How to remove semi-permanent dye from hair?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371389403.997419.jpg
