"Is there a way to remove hair dye out of hair naturally?"
- Martha    
Dear Martha,
It depends upon what type of color you have in your hair. There are basically three different ways to color your hair. Permanent color is permanent. It changes the hair's structure and will never be the same, or what we professionals call 'virgin' hair. Semi-permanent color fades & washes out in 4-6 weeks. These colors do not have the ability to make your hair lighter. They will only add color to your hair. Then there is temporary color. This color stays in for up to a few washings and is pretty much just staining the hair. Please be aware though, that even when using semi or temporary color, when mixed with chemicals, such as those found in traditional hair products and even regular use of chlorinated water (causing your hair to become extra porus), these "temporary" colors may become "permanent". 
All hair color fades naturally, whether permanent or semi-permanent, just like colors in your clothing would. Sunshine can speed this process up, and chlorine in your water can have this affect as well.  
My perferred method is to use Vitamin C. Vitamin C is good for you and your hair! It releases the color molecules in a safe, effective way without damaging or drying out the hair, rather than just fading the current color that you have.
You will need:
    A powder form of vitamin C
    A good moisturizing shampoo & conditioner (we recommend Tuff'N Up because it's loaded with hemp oil protein)
    Apple Cider Vinegar
    Bowl for mixing
    Cling Wrap or a plastic cap
    Hair dryer to speed up the process (we recommend a portable hooded dryer for even distribution of heat) 
Directions: Mix 3 or 4 tbsp of vitamin c with your shampoo of choice in the bowl. Apply to wet hair just as if you were giving yourself a good shampoo. Use a generous amount. Massage it through your hair a good 5 to 10 minutes. Squeeze out excess liquid and cover your head and hair with the bag. Sit under a warm dryer for up to 45 minutes depending on how dark the color is that you are removing and how much you want to lighten it up. This should not lighten your (natural) hair, only remove the color that is there. Rinse with apple cider vinegar. Use a conditioner if you need to get through any tangles.
