Has it ever happened to you that you want something with all your heart and, when you get it, you get tired almost immediately?


I don’t know if it has to do with the planets, the zodiac signs, or simple human existence, but we tend to get tired of things very quickly. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be so many things like polyamory and all that I still don’t understand very well.

Fantasy hair colors are no exception.  People get tired of wearing pink, green, or blue hair all the time. When that happens, they want to erase it from the map, as if it were a disappointing love,   whether it’s polyamory or the more traditional love.


Thank God, when it comes to neutralizing fantasy hair dyes like pink, erasing it is simpler than forgetting love.  You simply need to use a green shampoo or a semi-permanent green hair dye.

How to neutralize pink hair with green shampoo

Applying a green shampoo is the easiest solution to neutralize pink hair. It gives you the possibility to regulate the neutralization.

What do I mean by regulating the neutralization?


I mean  having the possibility to deposit green pigments every time you wash your hair to see gradual results.  When the pink has disappeared, you simply have to stop using it.


In other words, wash your hair with the green shampoo once and evaluate the results.

  • If your hair is no longer pink when you dry it, stop using the shampoo.
  • If it's still pink, use the green shampoo again the next time you wash your hair and evaluate the results. Continue with that process until pink has been neutralized.


 It's a very safe method because you don't run the risk of ending up with green hair.  And by using a moisturizing shampoo, you'll be protecting your hair fiber, which is never a bad thing.

And best of all, you can customize your green shampoo. How?

By preparing it yourself.



  • Moisturizing shampoo.
  • Semi-permanent green hair dye.


 You can't use just any semi-permanent green hair dye. You must choose it according to the pink shade you want to neutralize. 
  • If your hair is light pink, use light green.
  • If your hair is a medium pink, use medium green.
  • If your pink is dark, use dark green.

Why is it so important to choose the right green level?


Because  if you use a green color that is stronger than your pink base, you could end up with all your hair green.  And that's not what you're looking for.

You need to respect the color shade to avoid unexpected results.

Now, let's prepare the green shampoo.


Preparing the green shampoo to neutralize pink hair

  • In an empty shampoo bottle, mix 250 ml of moisturizing shampoo and 250 ml of your choice of semi-permanent green hair dye.
  • Mix until the components are integrated.


How to use it

  • Wet your hair and apply the green shampoo, massaging it into a lather.
  • Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse.
  • Dry your hair.


The long-awaited moment has arrived. Look at your hair: has the pink been neutralized? Do you still notice traces of pink?


Don't worry! You can continue using this shampoo as many times as necessary until the pink is completely neutralized.

Remember that you’re using a moisturizing shampoo and a semi-permanent hair dye that contain neither peroxide nor ammonia. Therefore, they won’t damage your hair.

When there are no more traces of pink, you can stop using them.

Are you anxious to make pink disappear from your hair? Do you want to immediately change your hair color because you can't stand pink anymore?


Try a semi-permanent green hair dye!

Unlike green shampoo, it’ll neutralize pink in one step because it works immediately. There’s no need to repeat the application several times.


In this case, it’s also essential to correctly choose the green color you’ll apply.  Remember that if you apply a darker green than the pink you have in your hair, you’ll end up with green hair. 

The green color pigmentation is very strong. It’s as strong as black or red hair dye. And if you apply a very dark green to your light pink hair, you’ll end up coloring your hair instead of neutralizing the pink.


Applying semi-permanent hair color is very easy thanks to its creamy consistency.

  • Divide your dry hair into four sections and hold them.
  • Release one of the sections and apply semi-permanent green hair dye from root to ends. Repeat in the remaining strands.
  • Leave on for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse until water runs clean and don’t apply shampoo or conditioner.
  • Dry your hair.


Jump for joy because pink no longer exists in your hair! Now you're ready to apply any shade you want.



Green is the color you should use to neutralize your pink hair.

You can use a green shampoo or a semi-permanent green hair dye. The most important thing is that you choose the right green shade for the pink you have in your hair.

And remember, neutralization is an important first step before applying a new color.
