    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.

  • Doesn't Damage Hair 5 Star Rating
    I've used this product a few times in the past and it's never let me down.This is the only product that will remove all that black color and leave my hair in the same condition it was before I used it. I've read other reviews on people who have had not so good experiences, and I'd like to share some of the steps I've done to get the best results.

    I have about 2 inches of new growth on my roots, and the rest of my hair is colored black. You can put this on your roots but it WILL lighten them a bit, so just keep that in mind. I usually work in sections, applying the solution quickly as it will lose potency after a while. Put a processing cap on (these are cheap and look like a shower cap), and apply some hair dryer heat to help the cuticles open up a bit. The box says 20 mins, but it also depends on how much color is in your hair and how dark it is. I usually leave mine in for upwards of an hour.

    Check your hair every 20 mins or so to make sure it's working, and apply more heat if needed. Once you start seeing the desired color removed, wash it out. Use a shampoo (clarifying if possible) and YES use the processing lotion! I know this is a controversial step but it's actually useful. The lotion is hydrogen peroxide and will allow any left over dye molecules to re-oxidize. This way you can see how much dye is left over and do another round of ColorFix. It's highly unlikely that you will get this in one pass.

    Once all the dye has been removed, wash it thoroughly and condition. Purchase a Protein Filler and put that on your towel-dried damp hair BEFORE recoloring. Do not rinse it out. This will equalize the porosity of your hair and will help accept the new color you are applying. It's also very important to get a color 1-2 shades LIGHTER than what you are going for. This is because after ColorFixing, your hair will absorb new dye much faster and if you use too dark of a color, you may find yourself at the beginning again. Remember, it's always easier to go darker than it is to go lighter, so you can adjust the deepness later on.

    Sorry for the long review, but hopefully these steps help!

  • Love It! 5 Star Rating
    My hair is naturally brown and for some reason I died it black. I liked it but now I'm over it. I also have thick curly hair. I used this stuff and I love it! Although the smell is AWFUL, it took out all the black and it is now a bronzy golden color. I also did not use the third step because I did read that it makes the hair darker and I'm trying to go lighter! I suggest to use this! =)

  • Great Product 5 Star Rating
    I was concerned about drying out and breakage but after reading the reviews I was ready to try it. When I bought it the women suggested a deep conditioner with it so I bought it. I was not prepared when I applied it (no gloves or applicator bottle) But continued. After 20 minutes it didn't look light enough after 35 I got nervous and washed it out. I didn't do step 3 as advised by other reviews. I thought I would have to re-color but the color was really nice and didn't even need the conditioner. Great product!

  • Works Alright 3 Star Rating
    I've been dying my hair dark brown for years I tried this product and it brought it up to like a reddish orange but just on the bottom and top and the mid section stayed fairly dark. Applied again, and it didn't change the mid section at all. I didn't use step 3 and left the application in each time for about 30 minutes with heat. I shampooed and conditioned after each application. I rinsed for the full 5 minutes each time prior to shampooing. I then put on a dark blonde. My hair turned a light/med brown with orange undertones even the I used Unred mixed in with the color. I obviously got lighter brown hair but it's not quite even and I'm not diggin' the orange undertone. This product is probably better for light brown haired girls or dark blonde to begin with. I think it just depends on your beginning hair color and undertones how this will end up turning out on an individual's hair so there's really no sure fire way to determine if it will work or not, everyone is different. It didn't damage my hair which was nice, and I used a deep conditioner which may of helped.

  • Amazing Results! 5 Star Rating
    My friend and I both had a problem with our hair. We had the lower half of our hair which was dark and wouldn't hold any color and the top half that was much lighter. We wanted to be able to get our hair all one color so we could have a fresh start and get the colors we were trying to get.

    My hair is shoulder length, wavy, and very thick. My hair was a dark reddish brown but wouldn't hold color. It turned my hair into a very light copper color and evened it out completely with the part that was lighter.

    My friends hair is to her mid back, straight, and very thin. My friends ends were almost black and she had been going to a salon to try and get them lightened for 8 months with no results. This turned her hair into a medium auburn color VERY dramatic difference from the almost black.

    We threw away step 3 as suggested by everyone. We did 2 oz part 1, 2 oz part 2, and 2 oz shampoo. We applied to our whole heads, not just the darker part. This product still evened it all out. It didn't lighten the roots a bunch and

    This product was amazing and we are very very pleased with the results it has given both of us.

  • Put My Hair Back To Normal 5 Star Rating
    I absolutely loved this product! I have auburn hair, and decided to dye it a light ash brown. Needless to say it turned my hair totally black! And i have very long hair. I tried everything to get the color out but because i had used an ash color, it just wouldn't work. I was also afraid of stripping it because i didn't want to risk having to cut it all off. This product lightened it to my normal red, and i didn't even have to re-dye it! The only drawback was that it smells like rotten eggs. But it did leave my hair fairly soft an undamaged. I followed the process with a good conditioner and it worked out fine. I would absolutely recommend this product. My hair is very fine and suffered no damage.

  • Don't Do It! 2 Star Rating
    I have been dying my hair black for 10 years and wanted to go back to my natural color which is a golden brown. With the first wash I could not even believe it- it was so light an the black was really coming out. It was shocking to see. When I applied step 3 it turned completely black again. Very upsetting. So, I read the reviews about not using step 3 and washed it two more times without using step 3. So now.. the top part was a brassy/orange and the bottom part of my hair was black. It was not pretty- at all.
    Woke up the next morning and it was almost all black again, stunk still and now just the roots were brassy/orange. :( So.. I went and got a box of dark brown to cover this whole mess up and pretend like it never happened. Well.. it covered it Ok. but the roots are not taking the color so I can see some brass/orange when I look in the sunlight or in bright lights. Very frustrating. My hair also feels very dry and not as healthy. Why did I use this! I don't recommend it.

  • It Did The Job 3 Star Rating
    So i had a horrible job done at the salon where they dyed my hair red instead of dark purple (i know right) so i went to sallys and purchased this item (actually cheaper on folica :() Let me say this right now..there are no words to describe how horrendous the product smells..It sticks to your hair and the smell wont go away. Overall it did the job. I added the shampoo so that it wouldnt take off all the color but it still took off most of it.
