When rinsing out hair dye, do you use conditioner?

rinse the dye with conditioner

  • When rinsing out hair dye, you need to use conditioner.
  • Conditioner won’t fade the hair dye. Instead, it’ll nourish your hair and decrease frizz.  
  • Your conditioner should include moisturizing agents, and I’ll tell you more about them later.
  • Also, remember not to rinse out semi-permanent hair dye with shampoo. Only use shampoo with permanent hair dye.

Today, I woke up craving determination.

I got more determined after reading my social networks.

Do you know what they asked me?


 They asked me about using conditioner to rinse out hair dye. The answer is YES. Not only you can but you should. 


Let’s debunk a myth. But first, I’ll ask you a question.

Do you think you must use conditioner if you’ve shampooed your hair?


I’m sure you answered yes.

However, let’s debunk the myth.


 You don’t need to shampoo your hair before using conditioner. That applies both to colored or untreated hair. 

Conditioner can be applied to the hair even if you didn’t shampoo it. Each product has a purpose.

  • The shampoo cleanses the hair
  • The conditioner nourishes and moisturizes it.


Therefore, they work perfectly independently.

Do you use box dye regularly, or have you ever used one?

Then, you probably noticed that a post-color treatment is included in the kit. That’s a nourishing treatment.

It nourishes the hair after coloring it.


 If you colored your hair, and you don’t want to use the post-color treatment included in the kit, you can use conditioner to restore moisture after rinsing out the hair dye with water. 

And trust me. You won’t be the first or the last to do it. Have you heard of co-washing?


It’s the act of washing your hair with a conditioner — and only conditioner.

You can perfectly rinse the dye using the conditioner. The reason is very simple.

Conditioner doesn’t ruin the color if you use it to rinse out the dye

It won’t remove the pigments that are deposited onto the hair.

Do you remember the purpose of conditioner?


Let’s review.

 Conditioner improves the feel, appearance, and manageability of hair. Most of these features are lost with shampoo. 

Shampoo, in turn, cleanses the hair. It can remove dirt because most shampoos contain sulfates. They’re similar to the detergents we use to wash dishes.

Have you ever noticed that when you wash dishes, your hands get dry and rough?


That’s the action of sulfates.

The same thing happens to your hair!

If you only shampoo it, it’ll be rough, dry, frizzy, and coarse.

That’s why it helps your hair to condition it with a creamy product that nourishes the hair fiber.

 What will happen if you apply conditioner to rinse out the dye? Will it ruin your color? 


Definitely, not.

While conditioners also contain sulfates, their concentration is lower.

That’s why you can use it to rinse out the dye.

Of course, not all conditioners are the same. And that’s what I’ll talk about next.


Which conditioner to use to rinse out hair dye

Now that you know that conditioner isn’t bad for your freshly applied hair dye, let’s see what conditioner would be best.

I recommend that you use a sulfate-free conditioner.

Yes, I know that conditioners contain a very small proportion of sulfates. But if you can use a sulfate-free conditioner to rinse out your hair dye, why not?


Another important feature when choosing a conditioner is that it should be moisturizing.

The main moisturizing components of conditioners are:

  • Keratin
  • Coconut oil
  • Argan oil
  • Linseed oil
  • Silk extract
  • Rose oil
  • Shea butter
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Pure oils
  • Amino acids
  • Hydrolyzed proteins


 Conditioner nourishes the hair like moisturizers nourish skin.  So, I’ll let you in on a secret.

When you buy a conditioner, try a small drop on your hand.

  • If your skin feels soft and moisturized, you’ve chosen the right conditioner.
  • If you don’t feel any changes in your skin, keep looking for the right conditioner for you.


Once you’ve found it, use it properly.

  • When the water runs clear, squeeze out the excess water.
  • Apply conditioner to the lengths and ends.
  • Then, apply some more to the roots and growth.
  • Leave it on for 3 to 5 minutes while massaging.
  • Rinse with plenty of warm water.


You'll notice that your hair has a new color, but it’ll also feel softer, shinier, and much more manageable.

If you use conditioner to rinse out the dye, you’ll reduce the damage of the permanent dye by 65%. Also, your hair will be moisturized again.



You can get these same results with the post-color treatment included in the hair dye kits. Those treatments are designed to deeply nourish your hair.

And if you don't use coloring kits, use a conditioner with moisturizing ingredients to rinse out the dye and leave your hair soft and manageable.
