BLEACH LONDON WASHING OUT LIQUID REVIEW

A picture of Bleach London Washing Out Liquid
Around February I started changing my hair colour from my natural black, to colours like neon orange, bright pink, deep violets, lavenders, greens and blues. My hair is currently a mix of green, teal and blue, but I'm properly going to go back to lavenders and deep violets come the winter months. When I first started changing my hair colour frequently, I needed to buy some products to maintain, protect and nourish my now bleached hair, and so I did a pretty big online order (I shared a little haul which you can read here). One of the products I picked up was the Bleach London Washing Out Liquid (200ml, £5), which I really thought was fantastic value for money - if it really met it's claims. Against other brands, Bleach London are really budget-friendly and I am fan of the Reincarnation Mask (200ml, £6), so I was hoping the Washing Out Liquid would be just as good.

Washing Out Liquid promises to help speed up the fading process for anyone who likes to change their hair colour regularly. It's meant to help dislodge and remove pigment in colours which are stubborn and usually take a while to fade out. Using it is super simple, just use it like you would any other shampoo, and they suggest you follow with the Reincarnation Mask. 

Does it work? For me, it just really doesn't. Each time I use Washing Out Liquid, I notice very little, if any, change in the colour in my hair. What I do notice is that even from the moment of starting the shampooing process, my hair feels rough, almost as if it's freshly bleached and needs a hella'lotta conditioning treatments and pampering. My hair is naturally, despite eight months of bleaching, in pretty darn good condition. It's smooth, sleek and healthy with a natural shine. My locks are pampered. Yet using Washing Out Liquid makes it feel deadly dry. I have to follow up with the Reincarnation Mask, because of how it makes my hair feel - but it doesn't get rid of pigment or lighten the colour. I've used more than half the bottle now, and for me it just doesn't work. 

I still like Bleach London as a brand though, and would definitely repurchase the Reincarnation Mask it's amazing (see here). Have you tried Washing Out Liquid? Did it work for you? I'd love to hear different people's experiences with this one - so let me know if you're a fan, or if like me, it just didn't tick the boxes!

  1. I've never tried this particular brand but if I wanted to get rid of a hair colour I use fairy liquid as it's actually really good. Failing that I use one of those 'hair b4' which is absolutely terrible for your hair but sometimes if I need to remove colour quickly can be the best way.

    1. I've not heard the best reviews of Hair B4, especially for darker hair, so I've avoided it so far! Have to admit, you haven't sold it to me :P I like my hair to look and feel good! xo

    2. I love the Colour/hair B4 stuff, it's been a huge lifesaver in the past, and I haven't found it's had a negative effect on the condition of my hair at all. Might be worth a try one day, I've had absolutely fantastic results with it! If the dye you use is more of a 'stain' though, it might not work as well.
      I've been feeling so tempted by some of Bleach London's coloured hair dyes for a short term bit of colour, maybe this product works better on those as they aren't so permanent?
      Thanks for sharing!! x

    3. Yeh the colours I've been using are semi-permanent, but I'm yet to see a review where it's worked well on dark hair and I'm not sure I want to risk it! I'm glad it's been a great product for you though :) Same for the Washing Out Liquid - the colours I use are semi-permanent, so they're the same type of hair colourant as the Bleach London range xo

  2. I've just gone from pretty much fluorescent pink hair back to ashy blonde in a week by using Vosene medicated shampoo (poundland!). I apply it to dry hair and leave it to soak on my hair for 30 mins every night before rinsing out. Complete lifesaver as I was only meaning to go a light pastel pink. It is a lil drier than normal but nothing a good hair mask won't sort out :) xx

  4. I've been using Bleach London colours over my bleached dip dye and i'm in love with them. They hardly ever need reapplying and my hair doesn't feel dry at all, i do use the reincarnation mask about once a fortnight though!
    I've had a range of colours and after years now im wanting to get rid and be natural again. This wash out shampoo just isnt working. This dye simply does not want to come off me!
    Heads up- it lasts waaay longer than 2-10washes
