“I have ended up with some crazy and stupid hair colours as a result of putting dye on dye and then one day I saw an advert on TV for a Colour Remover.”
I have been dying my hair for years, constantly changing the colour. In the past I have ended up with some crazy and stupid hair colours as a result of putting dye on dye and then one day I saw an advert on TV for a Colour Remover (something i had never bothered to look into before). It looked so easy on TV and I decided I would give it a shot. It’s not a cheap tool to have though at £11, and if you have long hair like me then you will probably need 2 boxes.
It’s very easy to use. You just mix solution A with B much like you would normal hair dye. I used the extra strength which is left on for 60 minutes. It’s easy to apply to your hair but it has a very strong odor of what i can only explain as rotten eggs and burning hair, which surprises me as it states NO AMMONIA but that is the exact smell Ammonia gives off. It’s not a nice smell but is manageable.
The hardest and most important part about this product is the rinsing. It states to run fingers through your hair when rinsing but my hair began to feel dry and fragile almost like straw, so it was impossible to run my fingers through my hair without pulling it all out. It doesnt state about conditioning but personally I conditioned when finished just to make it feel soft and manageable again – this shouldn’t affect the results if you correctly rinse before.
It does explain it all in the leaflet but it confused me a little. Basically, if you do not rinse properly and buffer, the colour particles will not be rinsed away. This hair remover breaks down the colour particles and then you have to rinse them away (otherwise you will wake up the next day with dark hair again) - this has happened to a few people I know. Once rinsed and dry, your hair will look lighter and have a tint of ginger.
This product will not work if you have used XXL dyes as they have silicone in them and that sticks to your hair – for example, when you use a hair dryer you’re heating the silicone and then it molds around your hair which makes it a complete nightmare to strip. I have a lot of colour build up on my hair where it’s been dyed so often but this still lightens my hair and takes out a lot of colour, so I do strongly recommend it and one of the best bits is that you can put another dye straight on.
My hair was dark brown – after Colour B4, it went a chestnut brown with blondey bits.
It took the harsh darkness out of my hair allowing me to dye it a lighter colour.
Does it Work: Yes (depending on a few facts and it must be used correctly)
Best Bit: Easy to use
Worst Bit: The horrible smell
