    Before using colorfix After using colorfix

    Directions

    For full color correction:

    1. Apply to dry hair.
    2. Mix equal parts of  Colorfix Part 1 Color Reducer and Part 2 Conditioning Catalyst in tint bowl or an applicator bottle. (Mix as much as will be needed for the density and length of hair that requires correction.) Wearing gloves and using a tint brush, apply quickly and evenly to the hair. If mixed in an applicator bottle, shake vigorously until thoroughly mixed (45 seconds to 1 minute). Gently work through the hair to ensure even penetration. After mixing Part 1 Color Reducer and Part 2 Conditioning Catalyst, use as quickly as possible, since the activity of the mixture decrease with time.
    3. Cover loosely with a plastic cap, and process up to 20 minutes. Strand test frequently. Low, warm dryer heat may be used to speed processing time.
    4. Rinse hair for 3-5 minutes and shampoo. If sufficient color is not removed, repeat Step 2 and 3 (this may be done on damp, towel-dried hair). Depending on condition of scalp and hair, do not repeat process more than 2-3 times.
    5. When desired level of color removal has been achieved, apply Processing Lotion for 5 minutes. (Due to the nature of dye molecules, it is possible that hair may redarken to an unacceptable level. If it does, repeat Steps 2-4 on damp hair, until sufficient color is removed.)
    6. Rinse well. Dry hair with a warm heat setting. (A hot setting may cause scalp irritation.) You may now proceed with your color application, if performing a full color corrective service.

    For slight color correction (lighten color that has gone too dark or ashen):

    1. Mix 1/4 oz Part 1 Color Reducer + 1/4 oz Part 2 Conditioning Catalyst + 1 oz Shampoo.
    2. Wearing gloves, apply to damp, towel-dried hair. Apply only to the areas of the hair that require lightening, and work into lather. To determine timing, take a strand test frequently.
    3. When the desired shade has been reached, rinse thoroughly and shampoo.

    Tips for successful color correction:

    • Always strand test color formulas to be used prior to application. Remember, porous hair will absorb colors more quickly and the resulting hair color may be slightly darker. You may need to formulate 1-2 levels lighter than desired result.
    • Always use a low pH conditioner after an application of Colorfix. This will help protect the hair, and return it to a more normal state.
    • Colorfix is developed to remove oxidative dyes. Since most semipermanent colors are combination of direct dyes and oxidative dyes, Colorfix may only partially remove these.

  • Works Great, But Quickly Caused My Happiness To Frustration 4 Star Rating
    Well after reading the reviews on this product I decided to give it a shot. I was willing to try anything after being stuck with this ugly jet black color for over a year. So I bought the product and put it in and left it for almost an hour. The reviews said to skip step three, and I wasn't sure why. But I did it anyway just to be on the safe side. It turned out an orangy reddish gold color and I was immediately so impressed that it took all that black out! Even my hairdresser couldn't get as much black out like this stuff did. The color I am looking to go is a chocolate brown, so I was eager to proceed to dying it with the hair color I had. WELL. That was a mistake. I went and put the color in my hair and within five minutes it turned black again! I was extremely close to tears and couldn't believe what I had was seeing. After doing some research I discovered that the peroxide in the developer for the hair dye causes the black to come back, hence why everyone says to skip step 3 (because there is peroxide in step 3.) Apparently the only thing I can do now is go back to the store, buy a whole other box of Colorfix, wait a week and then dye my hair to the chocolate brown. So all in all my experience has been annoying and frustrating, but in the end the product itself is great. It will get rid of that harsh color, you just have to have some patience to get to your ideal color. I'll write another review when I go to get the black out the second time and let everyone know how it works out in round two.

    I got this product at Sally's Beauty because I couldn't get the Clariol Eversol color remover. I was really skeptical about this product but I was just trying to get to red. I have had various shade of black/dark brown hair for the last 5 years and this stuff took the most recent color applications out very well, but the stuff that's been dyed more than that turned into either a red or a light brown. This works well if that's the shade you're going for or if you're going to bleach over it like I did. And another thing is don't use the last step because I heard it makes your hair darker.

    Alright...so I read like atleast 60 plus pages of review on this stuff...I decided that I would try to use it considering I have dyed my hair permanent black for the last year, and I wanted to go back to blonde without the bleach...so...I got two boxes which I was told and read should have been enough..well here we are 4 boxes later and 8 applications later, Im sitting with this crap on my head now lol...the only problems I have had so far is, well the smell IS bad, I dont care what anyone has written on here, Ive been doing my hair for over 10 years now and some of the smells Ive had on my head before were NOTHING compared to this, it doesnt bother me BUT I have had atleast 15 people say "whats that bad smell" when Ive walked into a room lol so yes, it does smell and washing it amplifies it, it doesnt smell too bad after it dries though. It has taken some of the black out buuuut I dont know if I would say enough to make it very light at all, its currently a chocolate cherry color I would describe as I guess...Im going to do the bleach anyway but I have a feeling its going to be a scary time for me the next few weeks lol, as far as Im concerned it should have lifted the color way more than it has at this point, was it worth the money...yah in my case it was I guess...but for someone else, maybe not. This is a product that can go either way, everyones hair is different so to write a review to base on whether you buy it or not really cant be done. Also, if you have semi or demi permanent color in your hair and you use the product and it doesnt work..dont write a bad review, it clearly states on the box it will not lift these types of hair color...duh..I dont know why I keep reading reviews about it not working on that type of hair color, of course it doesnt, it says it doesnt! In the end, my hair is lighter not as light as I thought it would end up but lighter, it does smell like fish lol, but not that bad, and I would recommend it...oh also, I didnt use the lotion as I should have and even without the lotion after a day or so it did get darker on its own maybe a shade or two so..... Good luck ladies!

    At the beginning of summer my hair gal used a base color too dark with blond highlights that were way to chunky. I was so unhappy with getting the same results from her that I went to someone else. The next gal dyed over the blond with an equally dark color that had a black green cast to it. It faded out after 5 weeks to a lighter brown. I was happy with it finally and let her know that I was happy with the color and she went back over it with the same black green color! What?! Was I speaking the same language? It was dark, dull black with a few highlights at the top and dark black on the ends. Horrible. I used Colorfix 2 days ago. It turned the expected strawberry blond and now it is a light brown with auburn highlights. I may not even recolor it. It looks healthy enough to let it stay this color for awhile. So until the roots come in, it's going to be this color! :)

  • Pretty Good, But My Hair Smells. 3 Star Rating
    I've been dying my hair black for 3 years. I wanted a product that would gently lift some of the dye off my hair so my light brown roots would not be so apparent as I grow my hair back out. I found this product to be VERY effective in lightening my hair, and after 2 applications (you can easily get 2 applications from one box) I had a coppery red color. I attempted to apply dark blonde dye over my hair to even things out, and my hair went back to black. Yes, it turned black again, even after following the directions to a tee! (It says in the box it could do this.)

    I bought another box of Color Fix and repeated one application. This brought my hair back to the coppery red. This time, I decided to just leave it alone as I did not want another color fiasco. It has now been 3 weeks without touching my hair, and it seems to get darker every time I wash it. I definitely do not have black hair anymore, but the red has completely transitioned into dark brown.

    Overall, the product has basically done what it said it would do. The only con (besides the color getting darker again) is that my hair has smelled faintly of rotten eggs (surfer) since the first time I used the product. I was hoping this would fade over time, but it seems to be revitalized everytime my hair gets wet or is heat-styled. Shampooing, rinsing, conditioning, ect. has not helped. This has been VERY annoying!

  • Fixing My Multicolored Hair Dilema 4 Star Rating
    I colored my hair dark red for the past 6 months and figured it was time for a change because I got so tired of red, I began hating it. I have naturally dark (almost black) hair with a natural red base so that red dye clung on no matter what color I tried to put over it. I tried a variety of light browns till I finally made a decision to bleach my hair - a decision I would regret tremendously. My roots turned bright blonde and the lengths turned bright orange! I had scary clown hair. So with a cap on over my ginger head I went to the salon and the hairdressers there were shocked but were sure to fix it. They applied dark blonde over my entire head only to realize the orange ends were more resistant than they expected. So they applied made a new dye concoction and threw in a lot of blue. At the end the salon professionals seemed happy and told me to return for highlights and since it was late I skipped blow drying to do it myself at home. When I got home, I looked at my hair in the light and to my horror it was gray at my roots in certain areas and auburn at the lengths. Another disaster. I went back to the salon people who acted as though they did everything right but forgot to tell me to return 3 additional times to continue applying color....this didnt make sense and I could afford to do it either so I took matters in to my own hands (again.) I played around with store bought color a couple times and got my roots decent but the ends still had the nasty red tone. I did some research online and found this product, One N Only Colorfix. I was hesitant to buy it since my hair had gotten so weak and I didn't want it to melt. Ah well, I risked it. The results were great, not mind blowing like some other customers, but I was satisfied. The solution smelled like a chemical, rotten egg fart that lingered in my apartment and my hair for a day lol but my hair's condition was great! Was very touchable and surprisingly soft, possibly better than before. My hair went from an auburn/ash brown/golden brown multicolored mess to strawberry blonde that was almost completely even from root to end. The ends still had a redder tint but not too obvious. For some this color would look beautiful but warm golden colors wash me out so I dyed it in couple days with a light ash blonde. However....that damn red continues to haunt me....almost no significant color change has occurred. I don't know if it is a result of the colorfix or the new dye but now my hair just looks like a darker strawberry blonde. It's better at least. Can anyone suggest a way to make my hair more ashy? I heard gentian violet may be an option...I want a medium to dark blonde so I can put highlights...any help is appreciated. All in all, I highly recommend this product, I am sure it will work wonders for you :)

  • I Was Amazed It Worked! 5 Star Rating
    My stylist turned my brassy blonde hair blue/black. I was in tears. I googled until I was half blind, read all the reviews here, and decided to plunk down the 14.99 at Sally's and try it. I did a test strip in the back underside of my hair. It was obviously lighter before washing and blow drying. It was however a brassy reddish blonde. I can live with that until I get it colored. I have dry curly hair so I did a test strip on a problem area and it worked was exactly as the other test with no signs of additional damage. I did my whole head, rinsed in the shower for 5-10 minutes, did shampoo and conditioner then dried it.. it's brassy and reddish but it's a world better than that ugly dark chocolate brown. Get a bad dye job? Don't hesitate to get this product and correct it yourself at home. I mixed as directed in a glass cereal bowl, with gloved hands I applied it to my hair like I was applying conditioner. It was quick to apply and I think I'd have had trouble with the brush application method by myself. Oh, the smell wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be. Much like a perm solution smell. I'm sure it will be gone after a couple more washings.

    I dyed my hair black and wanted to get rid of it so I went to the hair salon and she can i could try stripping it well,it worked but only on a little part of my hair,and it seemed like after a week or two it was going back to the way it was before.
    Well My bestfriend wanted to strip his hair so he bought one'n only colorfix and It worked on his hair awesomely!
    But then I tryed it and it seemed like it lightened it a little bit,but not all the way and after two days it looks as if it went back to the way it was before,not to mention the back of the box says "no unpleasent odor" this stuff smells horribly! and the smell of it stays in your hair for awhile.
