When I talk about natural methods, I don’t mean that they don’t cause any damage. After all, we’re talking about removing pink pigments from the hair fiber, and it’s not like playing with toys.

What I’m talking about is avoiding bleaching, a process with pretty strong chemicals.


After bleaching, your hair fiber will always be dehydrated. You’ll need intensive nutritional treatments.

 On the other hand, your hair won’t suffer excessive damage with any of these methods.  If it’s a little drier after removing the pink hair dye, a simple moisturizing mask will solve the problem.


With three ingredients (vitamin C, vinegar, and baking soda), you can create masks to remove the pink hair dye.

However, you’ll have to choose one of them according to the intensity of the pink.  The darker and more intense the pink, the more persistent the pigments will be. 


You should also consider how long the semi-permanent pink hair dye you used last. The fewer washes the hair dye lasts, the less resistant the pigments are. Then, it’ll be easier to remove them.

Therefore, you should choose the gentlest method.

Removing light pink hair dye or dye that lasts up to 10 washes with Vitamin C


Vitamin C is excellent for removing a soft pink or pastel pink hair dye. It can easily be found in effervescent tablets.


What do you need?

  • 2 tablets of Vitamin C.
  • Warm water


How to prepare it

  • Mix the Vitamin C tablets with the hot water.
  • On your dry hair, apply the mixture from the roots to the ends and leave it for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse with plenty of warm water and shampoo to remove any remaining solution.


Removing medium pink hair dye or dye that lasts up to 20 washes with a vinegar mask

The vinegar mask is one of the most usual ways to remove semi-permanent hair dye. You must be careful because it’s quite corrosive to the hair. That’s why you should prepare it with a good moisturizing shampoo.

Be prepared because vinegar has a very persistent smell that can last for several days. So, nothing that good French perfume won’t solve.


What do you need?

  • Moisturizing shampoo.
  • White or Apple cider vinegar.


How to prepare it

  • Mix 250 cm3 of vinegar with 250 cm3 of shampoo and mix until a consistent cream is achieved.
  • Wet your hair and apply the mixture of shampoo and vinegar.
  • Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes and rinse with plenty of water. You can use shampoo and conditioner to remove the smell of the vinegar.


If you notice that there’re still some pink traces in your hair, apply this mask again after twenty days. In the meantime, hydrate your hair with coconut oil at least once a week.


Removing dark pink hair dye or dye that lasts up to 30 washes with a baking soda mask

and leave it residue free

Baking soda works by generating a boiling chemical reaction through oxygen when it contacts water. It’s the final alternative because  it’s the most aggressive method given that it produces a chemical reaction. 

Of course, that chemical reaction is milder than bleaching.


What do you need?

  • Moisturizing shampoo.
  • Baking soda.


How to prepare it

  • Mix 100 g of baking soda with the shampoo and blend until they’re integrated.
  • Wet your hair and apply the mixture of shampoo and baking soda to your hair.
  • Lather well, avoid contact with your eyes, and leave for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Rinse your hair with cold water and apply a moisturizing oil.


Do you notice any traces of pink? You’ll have to wait 20 days before applying baking soda again because it can be too aggressive for your hair.


Plan to strengthen your hair after removing the pink hair dye

Removing the pink hair dye without bleach is possible. I would even say preferably if you’re not in a hurry.

Apart from using these natural ingredients, don’t forget about your hair health. Remember that before coloring your hair pink, you probably bleached it. So, it may be weaker.


That’s why  after using any of these methods, you should intensify nutrition and hydration treatments .

Be responsible with your hair, not only to make it look beautiful but also to keep its ends from opening up. It weakens the hair fiber making it more prone to breakage.


You don’t need to spend a fortune to care for your hair after removing pink hair dye. You can carry out this basic hair care plan:

  • Apply micellar water to the ends twice a day. It’ll seal them and prevent them from losing moisture.
  • Use an overnight hair mask once a week, every two weeks. You can choose coconut or olive oil because they have super moisturizing power. Remember to wrap your hair in a shower cap, or a towel, so you don’t stain your pillowcase.
  • Apply a nourishing mask for damaged hair every ten days and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. These masks return moisture to the hair.



To remove pink hair dye, you can use less harmful methods than bleaching. You should choose them according to the shade of pink you have in your hair.

Remember to moisturize your hair afterward not to damage it as if you had bleached it.

Now tell me, which of these methods will you use according to the intensity of the pink?
