Removing Old Hair Color is More Important than Everyone Realizes, it is the KEY to regaining Healthy Hair For Most People

Killerstrands “Old-Hair-Color-Removal-Process”
.........the road to shiny Healthy Hair
So you’ve been dying your hair with box dye for years and in the process have created what we here at KillerStrands like to call DD or“delayed damage” to your hair. Your hair is now dry and straw-like and possibly a weird color that you don’t know how to fix or re-color. We can help you change all that and get back to having healthy hair if you just follow our Killerstrands Method for OLD HairColor REMOVAL Process
We MUST begin to remove old hair color and you have 2 choices in which to do it, GENTLY AND SAFELY…..they both use VANISH a remarkable product patented by a guy who is a genius as far as I am concerned!
  1. Either use MULTIPLE boxes of Vanish (KC’s ONLY recommendation for color removal) for those not wanting to go through #2 process……………... OR
  2. Click Here
    Start the “Shampoo Train/Color Correction Packets Process” which is a process KC came up with when she was doing many celebs hair color who wanted to change color safely - frequently. She would have them begin to shampoo it at home or ‘ON Location’ until they could get to see her. This method also works for those who want to try to save some money on “How many Boxes of VANISH u need to purchase to get all your old HairColor out”
  1. Purchase 1-10 Boxes of VANISH - KC will recommend the # of boxes you will need.   Follow through on All VANISH applications till color is removed - using 10 Volume Check Process.
  1. The first thing you’ll want to do is work on getting the box color out of your hair, as much of it as you possibly can, and the best way to do this is with a shampoo train. To do a shampoo train, you will need the following:
  • A few Malibu2000 Color Correction packets (available in the KillerStrands store). These come with a plastic hair cap, which you will also need. They now have CPR packets which are Color Pigment Reducer packets. Which also helps remove the color.
  • The lousiest shampoo you can find with sulfates in it - look under your sink is usually a great place to try!!!.
  • To help speed the process up, get a “TRAVEL” hood dryer like the “Travel Hair Dryer (hood system)” (reasonably priced) also available in the store, which hooks right to your blow dryer and works really well and almost exactly like the professional hood dryers at the salons. 

Once you have those products on hand, do the shampoo train as follows:
  • Wet your hair and apply your sulfate shampoo, use plenty of it.
  • Scrub hands together ferociously with strands in between. Do this for a few minutes. You want to try to loosen up the color molecules so they will wash out.
  • Leave suds lathered on hair and apply plastic treatment cap - apply heat, let stand on hair for 1-2-3-4 hours!
  • Use the Travel Hair Dryer hood for heat to help the color molecules loosen.
  • Leave suds on 1-2-3-4 hours ;-)   and then rinse.
  • Apply Malibu2000 Color Correction packet and follow directions only leave on hair for as long as possible  ’’up to 2 hours’’…....
  • Rinse and repeat.
You can do the shampoo train up to 5 times in one day or over the course of a few weeks, and we promise that your hair will already start to feel better just after this step, especially after the Malibu2000 packet, because those always make our hair feel amazingly soft.  They remove toxins from the water and old styling products.
The next step is to condition. When you’re done with your shampoo train for the day, apply Gleam and Intensive and leave it in for at least 45 minutes to an hour OR apply Gleam and Thriven and leave it in overnight. This will help re-condition your hair and get it ready for coloring.

If you still have box dye left in your hair even after you’ve done the shampoo train several times, you may have to use Vanish. You will just follow the instructions that KC includes when you buy it from her store. Doing the shampoo train first, though, decreases the amount of boxes of Vanish you’ll need, which will save you money.
Now that you’re ready to color your hair, you’re going to want to make sure you have Gleam and Intensive on hand.
  • BEFORE you apply your color, coat the hair with Gleam. When the developer opens your cuticle to allow the dye to enter, the oils in the Gleam will go in with it.
  • Use only professional dye from the KillerStrands store because we can guarantee that you are getting fresh, authentic products. Old and/or fake dyes will do more damage than good.
  • AFTER you apply your color, apply Intensive and leave it sit for as long as you’re able to, but for at least 45 minutes. This will help your hair return back to its natural, balanced pH and helps to lock in the color.
  • When you’re all done, if you REALLY want to pump up the moisture and softness of your hair, use Thriven overnight.
  • ALWAYS and ONLY use sulfate-free Shampoo unless you’re doing a shampoo train.
  • Click here
    Use Gleam daily to keep hair nourished.
  • Use Thriven overnight (or all day) once a week or bi-weekly.
  • Use a shower filter (available in many stores) to keep damaging minerals out of your hair.
  • Get on KillerStrands 10,000 heads program and follow it to the letter. It’s the best way to achieve your absolute healthiest hair.

  1. Hi KC,
    A while ago you did a post about level 6 hair color. You suggested that it's such a beautiful shade and more people should try it. I've searched and searched the blog and just can't find it now that I'm ready to change my hair color back to brown. I can't remember if you recommended a neutral or an ash brown.

  2. You MUST "FILL " the hair first.... the easiest way to fill is to use KENRA'S fillers, a brilliant project. Otherwise you will have green hair and it will fade constantly. So read up on filling the hair.........YOu never use one tone, these hair colors are made for mixing so you would need part of the formula to have Neutral, but it depends on your percentage of GRAY.

    Remember everyone, if you want help from me you MUST/MUST give me answers to the Killer 18 questions....I will not give answers to you....just to sell you something that is not how Killerstrands works. I must have the total picture before I can make a recommendation.

    I'm happy to help but come prepared with your answers to the questions.

  3. I'm trying to let my natural granny hair grow in. I have dyed my hair a dark blonde for many years. Of course the transition looks horrible. Would lifting out the old color & using boost & burst silver put me in the right direction. I don't want to color any more but boost & burst sounds great to keep granny hair looking happy! Thanks!!

  4. I think you are going to Love BOOST & BURST in either SILVER BULLET or SILVER-BRASS BULLET depending on your hair color issues... you will have adjust processing times but don't give up try one time if its not right, try another, but I do feel this is what you need & what you will Love! KC

  5. You don't say what 10 Volume Check Process is.
