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.

    My natural hair color is light brown which was dyed medium to darker brown with some red tones. I had tried lightening it up a little with boxed dyes but it wouldnt budge. I originally thought i was going to have to bleach which I have never done before and was really hesitant. I read the reviews and decided to try this out. I put on the first application applied heat every so often with a blow dryer and washed out. I did the process a second time and I saw that my hair had lightened to a reddish blonde with an orange tint anywhere that I had previous highlights. I was a little nervous about the orange but went ahead with the processing lotion which darkened my hair just a bit and toned down that orange thank goodness. I think the processing lotion is a must and wouldnt skip. I was left with a pretty light strawberry blonde. I followed directions and decided to go with a permanant color a couple shades lighter, so I chose a natural medium blonde. I put it in and let it sit maybe five minutes so a total of 12-15 minutes and was left with a really light brown with some subtle gold tones in it. I did add a package of Ardell red gold corrector to the dye. It turned the dye purpleish which kind of freaked me out but it was fine and I think it helped a lot with the end color. As far as the smell, It was difficult to deal with while I was putting on. A couple things I did left me with next to no smell left. I rinsed it out for four minutes each time and then shampooed and the second time also used a deep conditioner as my hair was not happy. I think because I used a permanant blonde color and that has a strong ammonia smell that also masked the odor. Make sure wherever you do it to have an open window and I also put a box of baking soda in the bathroom which doesnt smell at all anymore. I definitely recommend this product and the steps I took left my hair in good shape. So glad I didnt bleach!!

  • Worked Like A Charm 5 Star Rating
    I have medium brown hair that I accidentally dyed jet black with the intention of getting a darker brown. I bought colorfix 5 days later and it took all the black out leaving my natural brown color. I absolutely love this product and would recommend it to anyone! Also- I didn't use the 3 bottle because so many reviews said not to so I wouldn't recommend it.

    The only downside: Your hair smells disgusting almost to the point that it is nauseating, however I soaked it in cold black coffee which took a bit of the smell out

  • 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!

    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.
