    I would do a CO to remove the honey but the dish soap is pretty harsh to your hair. Is there anything else you can use to clarify? Something like Suave Clarifying?

    Be sure to follow your Dawn wash with a moisture/deep conditioning treatment. I once had to use it to get rid of Vaseline for a Halloween look, and it worked like a miracle.

    I would mix the honey with conditioner and leave it on my head under a shower cap for as long as possible, then rinse it out with lots of warm water. It will likely make your hair feel very silky; you'll like it. Also try a warm olive oil treatment; it is said to pull color. People who have had color services at a salon are often told to avoid oil for this reason.

    I think you can get the honey out with water. Shouldn't take anything special.

    If it were me (and it has been), I'd give it a good soak in the dish soap (or if you can find Prell, it is a tad less harsh) then rinse in hot water. This will really ravage your hair, but will strip a lot of color out. Follow with an SMT without heating the honey. Leave it as loooooooooooooong as you can, rinse, and let your hair rest.

    Next day do a looooooooooooooong hot oil soak. This will pull a lot of color as well but not ravage your hair. Rinse, another SMT, rinse and let it rest.

    I'd repeat the hot oils as often as you want, but seriously only do the dish soap once (or forgo it altogether if you can). The hot oil will strip the color without damage, and it will lighten up with time.

    I tried to remove black temporary dye from my hair back in middle school with dish soap, but it didn't budge. I tried liquid laundry detergent too, with little success. It did fade eventually. Good luck!

    And honey is a lovely treatment for your hair, and just rinsing it out with water has worked for me.

    Wrap your head up in a towel to catch the drips around the edges.

    I have been using v05's clarifying shampo for the past two weeks and some of the color has budged, but its not really working the way I thought it would. Oh well.

    Nice. I hope it doesn't warm up the honey too much. I heard it doesn't lighten when its warmed up.

    ETA:
    btw, what kind of halloween look did you acheive with the vaseline?

    I'm pretty sure it has to be warmed more than body temperature to stop lightening. Ktani always says to microwave it for like a minute, which would get it pretty hot. Also, are you using the right dilution for honey lightening?
