Can you dye over splat hair dye? Or is it better for it to fade before applying the new color?

blue and red

  • If you want to apply a new color to your Splat colored hair, you’ll have to wait for it to fade completely.
  • You can do it gradually by washing your hair more often, which will take longer. Alternatively, you can do it faster by using coconut shampoo and baking soda, flaxseed oil, or ceramide conditioner.
  • If you choose the quicker option to fade your Splat dye and apply your new color, I’ll tell you how to do it properly.


What happened to you, little girl?

Didn’t you like the color of the Splat dye you chose to surprise your friends, and now you want to remove it?


It happens very often with fantasy colors.

They look spectacular in Instagram photos. But, when you bring that same color into reality, things don’t turn out as rewarding as they should be.


So, if you’ve used Splat semi-permanent hair color to dye your hair pink, blue, or any other color, the best is to wait for it to fade completely. Then, apply the new hair dye.

If you apply the new color with traces of Splat hair dye still in your hair, the future is uncertain. Why?


Let’s get back to colorimetry classes.

Let’s say you have pink colored hair and you apply a blue color on top. What color would you get?


At best, a faded purple shade.

Are you still hesitating? Here’s another example!


Imagine you have blue colored hair and you apply orange over it. What color would you get?

You’ll get a hybrid color between violet and burgundy.


Hybrids are all very well when it comes to cars with the latest technology. However, when it comes to hair color, a mix is one of the worst things that can happen to you.

 Basically, you won’t like the color of your hair to be a mix between blue or purple, burgundy or red, or pink or fuchsia.  Is that clear?


Also, what kind of color do you want to apply over your Splat colored hair?

That is an important piece of information.

What kind of dye to apply over Splat colored hair?

to darken hair

As I like to be the bearer of good news, you can start smiling. You can use any type of dye over your Splat colored hair, be it permanent or semi-permanent. But remember that  you must first fade your Splat color. 

It’ll all depend on what new color you will apply.


Do you want to apply permanent color over Splat colored hair?

You can go back to traditional colors, even if there are still a few traces of the previous color. The permanent hair dye will cover the base color.



Because it contains ammonia and is applied with 20-volume peroxide, making it easier for the new color to absorb and penetrate your hair.

However, you may have very dark or deeply colored hair, such as fuchsia, purple, blue, or green. If you want to apply extra-light blonde permanent hair color over it, you’ll have to wait until your Splat color fades completely.


Do you want to apply a new semi-permanent color but from a different brand than Splat?

In this case, you must remove all traces of Splat dye to make sure your new color turns out just like you want.

Now that you know you can use any color, it’s time to make your decision.

Will you wait for the dye to fade with approximately 25 washings? Or would you remove the Splat dye to apply a new color?


If you’ve chosen the second option, read on.


3 foolproof methods to fade Splat and apply a new color

Can’t you wait to get rid of that Splat dye?


Then, I guess that waiting for 20 to 25 washes will be too much for you.

But don’t worry, because I’ll tell you three options to speed up the fading of the Splat dye.


Instead of taking 25 washes, the Splat dye will fade in 5 or 6 washes.

That’s a big difference. Let’s not waste any more time. Your patience has a limit.


Coconut shampoo and baking soda mix

then introduce the mixture in the shampoo

  • Mixture of coconut shampoo and baking soda
  • Coconut shampoo (your favorite brand)
  • Baking soda (2 teaspoons)


Step by step:

  • Place 2 spoons of baking soda in the coconut shampoo and mix well to integrate the elements.
  • Wet your hair and apply the mixture of shampoo and baking soda to all your hair.
  • Massage well until you get a good lather and leave for 5 minutes.
  • Rinse with plenty of water.
  • Use this mixture until the Splat dye has faded.


Remember: It must be COCONUT SHAMPOO because it contains the necessary hydration to avoid hair damage. DOVE, HERBAL ESSENCE, OKEY are brands that have a great variety of coconut products.


Warm Flaxseed oil

remove hair dye from hair

Flaxseed oil is appropriate because it removes almost 60% of the dye from your hair, which is why it isn’t recommended for use on dyed hair. But you want to get rid of the Splat dye, right? Let’s get to work!



  • Flaxseed oil.
  • Gloves


Step by step:

  • Pour the flaxseed oil into a plastic container and take it to the microwave for a few seconds. I said just a few seconds.
  • Comb your hair with a middle part and put on your gloves.
  • With your fingers, apply the warm flaxseed oil from root to tip and leave it on for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse with plenty of water and shampoo to remove any remaining oil.

Use the flaxseed oil up to twice a week. You’ll notice that the color will have faded after 3 or 4 times.


Conditioner with ceramides

wash splat hair dye out

In this case, the only thing you’ll need is a conditioner with sulfates and ceramides. Why?


Because sulfates remove the pigments from the dye, but ceramides protect your hair fiber.


  • Conditioner with ceramides. The cheapest you can find.
  • Fine comb.
  • Sprayer with water.


Step by step:

  • Comb your hair and moisten it with the sprayer water.
  • Apply the conditioner from root to tip and leave it on for 5 minutes.
  • Comb through your hair with a fine comb.
  • Wet your hair again and reapply the conditioner.
  • You’ll notice that when you comb your hair, the remaining conditioner will come out the color of the hair dye.
  • Rinse thoroughly.


This method removes up to 80% of the dye, so I recommend that you use it up to twice.



If you want to apply new color over your Splat colored hair, the best thing to do is wait for it to fade.

If you don’t want to wait for it to wash out, there are other solutions. You can remove the pigments by using flaxseed oil, sulfate and ceramide conditioner, or a mixture of coconut shampoo and baking soda.
