    So I decided to use hair dye remover last nighy(big mistake). Now my hair smells of chemicals. I washed my hair 25 times last night but the smell is still there. Last option is to dye my hair. Help

    Every time I have used a hair dye remover, its always left my hair smelling of eggy farts :laugh:

    The smell lasts for days no matter how much I wash it and dyeing doesn't really help with the smell much either. I remember people suggesting making up a mixture of tomato juice, apple cider vinegar and baking soda and keeping that on your head for 20 mins and that was apparently good at neutralizing the smell. I was always too lazy to try it myself and just put up with the smell until I left

    Did you use Colour B4? That stuff is great but the smell is the strongest of all the hair dye removers I have used. Provoke hair dye remover is only about £2.99 in Savers so its a lot cheaper than Colour B4 and the smell is very, very minimal. Still has a touch of that eggy smell though :laugh:

    My mum had this problem and she tried dyeing her hair to get rid of the smell, but as Spock's Socks says, this doesn't work so beware!
