Why Does Hair Turn Orange After Bleaching?

Hair Color

Remember Annoying Orange? That really old meme? Yeah, that’s what it feeeelss like when your hair turns orange after bleaching. After all it wasn’t really the color you were aiming to get right? Bleach breaks down melanin (the pigment responsible for hair color) into colorless molecules, but still some stay there and if the hair being bleached has natural red undertones then it gives off an orangish hue. Too scientific, eh? Well let’s get down to the solution for this problem of orange hair.

How To Fix Your Orange Hair?

Fun Fact: Orange is one of the few words that has no rhyming words. So we understand why it isn’t particularly something that you’d want for your hair :P. That being said, there are a number of ways to fix orange hair.

Here are a few so as to speak:

Orange is a goner when you use a toner (Top 10 Rhyming Moments). Using hair color toners will help you reduce the orange tones by adding pigments to the hair which over the time have faded away into oblivion. Thus it also helps as a counter against orange hair. You can combine it with toning and glossing as well, to get that hair glowing girl!

3. Purple shampoo

Purple shampoos are built for the specific purpose to neutralize the orange tones in your hair. If it’s your first time using a purple shampoo then make sure that you only use it once or twice a week because the purple will translate your hair locks into white. Just keep up the efforts and soon your hair will be restored to its former glory and shine.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

Hollyhock herbs and ACV in the same room? What is this, a crossover episode?! Yep, this is indeed a way you can fight against your orange hair. ACV is a bit acidic which helps balance out the acidic content in your hair and hollyhocks are purple flowers, which are naturally good to balance out the orange hair you now have. So try hollyhocks to fight against your orange locks!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Should I Bleach My Hair Again If It Turned Orange?

Damaging yourself even further after some damage has been done is a BIG no-no.. Since it is a chemical process, no doubt it can be harsh on the hair and repeated bleaching can further damage the hair and lead to more unwanted disasters.

2. Why Does My Bleached Hair Look Orange?

Bleaching hair can cause them to turn orange as residual pigments which are left behind during the bleaching process cause natural color pigments to be stripped from your hair during bleach. There are also additional chances that your bleaching wasn’t done correctly which could have led to the problem.

3. What Color Cancels Out Orange Bleached Hair?

So you’re being innovative and want to get a color that cancels out bleached hair? Well, we’ve got some great ideas for you. To cancel out the orange tones in your bleached hair, you would normally need to use colors that are opposite on the color wheel i.e. a cool or ash-based color. Blue and purples tones help to counteract the warm tone and create a far more balanced hair color.

4. What Are 3 Ways To Quickly Fix Orange Hair?

You can go for color correction products, use toners and of course Anveya’s line of semi-permanent hair colors to help you get a quick fix for the orange hair problem you are facing :)
