Best shampoo for washing a bit of colour out of your hair?

Dyed my hair this week but it's a bit too dark so want it to fade sooner rather than later.

I seem to remember someone saying that baby shampoo is good for this (how reassuring!!)
Is that right or can anyone recommend anything else? I don't need anything drastic I just want it to fade a bit.

i think t-gel is quite good for this- you would hope that baby shampoo would be too mild to do any colour stripping wouldn't you hmm

head and shoulders I think

try a swim? chlorine usually strips hair colour (although have heard it can go greenish)

Any shampoo...lather it up..leave it like that and wrap towel round your head for half an hour...then go and rinse.

Pantene clear one good, iirc.

johnson & johnson baby shampoos is supposedly good for this. i don't suppose many babies are protecting their dye jobs.

My hairdresser said that anti dandruff ones are the best to use and they will fade most hair colouring.

vosene all the way,all my hair dye mad friends swore by it for crazy colour accidents.Or the other trick is a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide mixed in with the shampoo (from chemists,the weakest stuff)

My hairdresser recommends Head & Shoulders, always does the trick apparently!

Head and shoulders works (as I found out and I wasnt even trying to fade my hair colour!)

Any anti-dandruff shampoo.. the harsher the shampoo the more it will remove the colour.

I use oilatum

My hairdresser swears that pantene is the best for this
