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.

  • Product Saves The Day! 5 Star Rating
    This product was perfect. It removed all of the bad hair color. I was afraid I would have to recolor my hair aftwards, but after removal of the bad hair color, my hair looked just fine. Eventually I will recolor it, when my roots have grown out, but for the time being, my hair is getting some needed rest. My only criticism is that if you have long hair, you might need to order more than one box. My hair goes down to the mid of my back and I used the entire box in one use. If you need to use it a couple of times to get out all of the bad color and you have long hair, you may need to buy more than one box.

  • Great Stuff- Always On Hand 5 Star Rating
    I keep this stuff around constantly- I am a permanent hair dye addict and I also like to use Manic Panic and Punky Colors. When I need to start over, I can use color fix to bring me back to a blanker state, a cleaner slate. I have lifted bright blue, purple, jet black, bright red, pink, you name it. Do not expect to use this product and be able to walk out the door, however. It should be used in conjunction with a new color to acheive the results youre after, especially if youre lifting semi permanent funky colors! When i lifted the blue, I had greenish, reddish, blondish hair for a day. I applied colorfix again and my result was a reddish blonde that absolutly needed another coloring agent. I had my new color ready and it turned out perfectly.I highly recommend this kit for those of you who want to remove semi permanent wilder colors!!! With more neutral or normal haircolor, I would still expect to recolor my hair, but I have acheived doable results without recoloring right away.Also, keep in mind that the instructions are there for a reason! It might not necessarily work the same way every time based on the deposits in your hair from various brands and colors of dye!

  • Worked As Expected 5 Star Rating
    My natural hair color is medium to light brown and I have been coloring my hair dark browns and then finally black for the past year or so. I tried to color my hair from black to brown and it didnt work, so I tried colorfix. I had to repeat the process a few times to make sure I got all the black out and it worked just as I wanted it to. You have to have to prepared to re-color your hair to the color you want after using colorfix. My hair is a nice looking red after using colorfix and I decided to leave it red for a little while before coloring it to brown.

  • One And Only Colorfix 5 Star Rating
    Ive used this product about 6 times with excellent results each time. I understand peoples frustrations with this product, but if you read the box and directions closely, it clearly states that you might have to use this product twice in order for all the dye to be removed. It also clearly states that sometimes redepositing of the dye can happen. I had that happen once and the next time I used Colorfix, the dye was completely removed. Also, as someone else mentioned, it will NOT take you back to your natural color because when you applied the permanent dye to your hair, you bleached some of the pigment out. This is what permanent dyes does - it "lifts" (bleaches) some natural pigment so that the dye molecules can be deposited. I am not a colorist, but Ive read lots about hair dying. I recommend this product to everyone because it works really well.

  • Hesitant, But Wow! 4 Star Rating
    Well, this box sat on my shelf for about a month before I got the nerve to try it. Yeah, it smells, about as much as a normal perm would. But it worked! I was skeptical because I had jet-black hair dye, and was told there was no way it was going to come out. My Hair is normally medium brown. There was a noticable difference, and although there is a slight cinnamon color, it isnt something I would say is overpowering. It looks like natural highlights. I would definately try this again (but I will never use the jet black dye again haha). Its only hair....right?

  • Hair Color Junkie Says It Works! 5 Star Rating
    I had overprocessed dyed blonde hair, and my hair looked flat, so i decided to dye it(with semi-permanent) darkest brown with the ends dyed red. Of course i got bored, and afraid to lighten it and risk losing my long thin hair that took forever to grow, i ordered this product, and first tried the "partial" removal(meaning mix with shampoo) and it took out the dark brown and my hair became red matching the ends). Too brassy for my skin, i tried the product again, this time with no shampoo and SKIPPED the "processing lotion" incl. and it worked! My hair actually feels softer and less dull and dry. Then i applied semi-premanent clairol instincts med ash blonde and i am estatic at how it turned out in the end! This is a great product, i skipped the "processing" lotion as i read that it darkens your hair back. This product has enough for a few applications, go ahead, dont be afraid! it actually is very gentle. A miracle, wish reg. stores carried it.

  • Colorfix Worked Very Well 5 Star Rating
    I accidentally dyed my hair too dark. I contacted Robert Craig.com and spoke with their expert. She recommended Colorfix, using only the directions for the "partial" fix. I mixed it as directed on the inside of the box cover and applied it & massaged (shampooed it in). Washed it out less than 5 minutes later and my hair was back to normal. Dont leave it on too long or it might bring out reddish tones. My hair didnt have the reddish tones after using Colorfix as some say, especially those who leave it on far too long.

  • It Worked The First Time. 5 Star Rating
    I used it to remove black dye from my daughters naturally brown hair thats been dyed every color known to man, and the black dye came out the first time and left her hair fairly red. She wore it that way for a week and then used a mahogony color, which worked quite well. We were very pleased with the color fix and will buy it again the next time she just has to have it black. Ive tried other products to remove black dye from brown hair, and this is the best by far, and left her hair in good condition.
