How to Fade oVertone Out of Your Hair

POV: You just achieved your dream shade using one of oVertone’s Coloring Conditioners. You look GOOD, like “my ex, who?” good! But now you’re ready for a new look and don’t want to wait for the natural fade out— *sigh*. 

Enter: The Fader Clarifying Shampoo.

The Fader is a pH-balanced shampoo that packs a powerful punch. It helps gradually fade your semi-permanent shade with hair-healthy ingredients while gently removing impurities and buildup from your scalp. That means you’re one step closer to your next hair goal while replenishing moisture, promoting hair growth, and preventing unnecessary damage with every wash.

Want to learn how to control the fade and prep for your next hair color? It’s easier than it sounds!

Meet Urvi, a content creator out of New York City and long-time oVertone fan who took us full circle on her hair journey from applying color to fading it effortlessly in preparation for her next look. Check out how she achieved her fresh-ombre-to-fresh-fade and controlled her hair color journey from home with The Fader Clarifying Shampoo.

P.S. Let’s just take a moment to swoon over Urvi’s stormy ombre. The Extreme Purple transitioning into Rose Gold at the end is a work of art. Not only did it come out looking fabulous, but she also achieved bold color on her dark natural hair.

So after you achieve your dream shade and are ready to prep for your next hair color, here’s how to safely control the process of fading back to your OG color with The Fader:


Wet hair thoroughly and lather a quarter-sized amount between palms. 


Lather through sections of the hair where color removal is desired, working it evenly from roots to ends for best results.


Let the shampoo sit for about a minute. 


Rinse thoroughly. 

We love The Fader because it’s safe for all hair types and textures. It’s also sulfate and paraben-free, so your locks shouldn’t dry out like with other traditional clarifying shampoos. Follow up with a high-quality conditioner like any of our Coloring Conditioners or a conditioning treatment like The Remedy for maximum hydration and silky smooth strands.

Go on and color your hair confidently, and when you’re ready to transition to a new shade, prep for your next hair color by controlling your fade with The Fader Clarifying Shampoo.
