3 Ways to Get Splat Out of Hair (IMPORTANT: check the health of your hair before)

in short time

  • You can only remove Splat hair dye early if your hair is 100% healthy.
  • In that case, you can use a clarifying shampoo, a mixture of baking soda and lemon, and ultimately, bleach it.
  • If your hair is badly damaged or showing signs of dehydration, the best is to wait until the pigments fade with washing.


Are you tired of fantasy colors?

Didn’t you like that green you’ve been dreaming about for a long time and that you achieved thanks to a Splat dye?

Do you want to go back to your pre-Splat color?


It happens a lot when you apply fantasy colors.

While it’s an adventure to change your look with a unique and distinct color, maintaining Splat hair dye can be quite annoying.


 And the good news is that you can remove your Splat color as long as your hair is healthy or medium-healthy. 

What do I mean if your hair is healthy? Can you take a little test?



So, I have the verdict, and I think you won’t like it.

If your hair is damaged, you won’t be able to remove the Splat dye.


 You won’t be able to remove the Splat dye because all methods will only damage your hair further.  And then, instead of having dry hair, you’ll have terribly damaged hair.


Also, have you bleached your hair before applying Splat?

That’s one more reason not to remove the color! Inevitably, bleaching has left your hair more prone to thinning and drying out.

If you apply new bleach to remove Splat color, you’ll damage your hair more.


  • So,  if your hair is healthy, you can choose any of these three methods. I would start with the first one on the list as it’s the least aggressive one for hair fiber. 
  • If your hair is damaged, expect the Splat color to fade with washing. After all, it’ll take about 25 washings.


If your hair can withstand a coloring process, let’s get to work!

Removing Splat hair dye with clarifying shampoo: for moderately damaged hair

remove toner from hair

Clarifying shampoo is ideal for removing Splat hair dye from moderately damaged hair. That’s dry hair that doesn’t break or fall out easily.

Why can you use this type of shampoo to remove Splat dye?


 Because it doesn’t contain developer or ammonia. However, it’s strong enough to create a chemical reaction that causes the hair fiber to expel the artificial color. 

It’ll remove the pigments from the Splat dye, exposing your previous color.

Do you want to know how to use it?


  • Wet your hair. Apply the clarifying shampoo and massage it into a lather.
  • Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse.
  • If the Splat dye has disappeared completely, you can start drying your hair.
  • If you still have traces of dye, you’ll need to shampoo 2 or 3 more times. Best of all, you can do it immediately.


Removing Splat dye with baking soda and lemon: only for healthy hair

leave it for 30 minutes

This homemade mixture will remove the Splat dye because baking soda opens the cuticles to expel the hair color. Also, the lemon juice set has lightening effects.

Although it’s useful, it’s still corrosive. I only recommend it if your hair is healthy.

mixed with lemon to remove the dye


  • 25 grams of baking soda
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Almond oil
  • A sunny day


Why a sunny day? Because, after applying the mixture, you must expose your hair to the sun for 30 minutes for the lightning reaction to take place.


Step by step:

  • In a plastic container, mix 25 grams of baking soda and the juice of 1 lemon. Respect the proportions. The consistency should be creamy.
  • Apply the mixture from root to ends, leaving 2 centimeters of growth so that it doesn’t touch your scalp.
  • Then, you must expose your hair to the sun for 30 minutes.
  • After that, rinse your hair and apply almond oil for 15 minutes from root to ends to moisturize your hair.
  • Rinse thoroughly and wash your hair with your usual shampoo and conditioner.


 If there are traces of Splat dye left, you shouldn’t reapply the mixture for at least 2 weeks.  If you abuse this mixture, you’ll damage your hair permanently.


Removing Splat dye with a bleaching session: for very healthy hair

Bleaching is a very aggressive process. So, it should be an option only for absolutely healthy and very well cared for hair.

Think about it: do you really need to remove the Splat dye?

Is it worth exposing your hair to a process as aggressive as bleaching, knowing that the dye will disappear with washings?


I’m just asking you these questions so you can consider all situations.

After all, it’s your hair and your decision.



  • 30-volume cream developer
  • Bleaching powder
  • Coconut oil
  • Gloves
  • Dye brush
  • Shower or thermal cap


Step by step:

  • Comb your hair and separate it into 4 sections from front to back and from ear to ear, holding them with hair clips.
  • Put your gloves on and, in a plastic container, mix the 30-volume developer with the bleaching powder until you get a creamy consistency.
  • Release one section of the hair and apply the bleaching mixture from root to ends, using a dye brush, leaving 2 centimeters of hair untouched.
  • Repeat on all 4 sections. When you’re done, cover all hair with the thermal or shower cap.
  • Leave on for 20 minutes, checking every 5 minutes.
  • Then, rinse your hair with plenty of warm water. You can use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to repair your hair.
  • Blow-dry your hair at medium temperature and apply a few drops of coconut oil to moisturize it.



The health of your hair will determine if you can remove the Splat dye. As the pigments in this dye are very persistent, aggressive removal methods must be used.

If your hair is moderately healthy, choose the clarifying shampoo. If it’s healthy, you can use the baking soda and lemon mixture.

Bleaching should always be the last resort to remove the color only if your hair is very healthy.
