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.

  • It Works! 5 Star Rating
    Brought at sallys for 12.99 I love this product like another user I mixed it with shampoo and it was great! It was gentle enough removing the color and I felt in complete control of what I was doing. I will say this, I deep conditioned my hair before and after. I striped my hair before using a loreal product I brought at the drug store although Im lucky because my hair is pretty strong I got uneven results that were too drastic. I dont have to recolor my hair since I got the color I really wanted using this which is medium brown. I had a great experience using this but I will deep condition frequently just in case.

  • Worked Good For Me 4 Star Rating
    I bought this at a Sallys for $11.99 it is really only $12.99 without the card. Its easy to use and prepare. I had bleached the bottom underside of my hair dyed it with Jerome Russell Punky Colors ( a red shade ) a good while ago and it had lost the grab it had to the red, it wasnt as intense as the first couple times. I used One n Only and it did make the pink remants from the red semi-permanent color lighter and the bleach lighter as well. I still have some of the kit left so Ill use it again. I thought it was well worth the price.

  • It Worked... For Me... Imagine That! 5 Star Rating
    Ok, Ive put all sorts of colors on my head, perm. semi perm. I thought it was hopeless to get a nice copper red again with all this dark color deposited. I asked people, they said... ohh it sounds like your hair is too porus. I did it anyway... it worked so freaking brilliantly!!!! Nothing ever works for me and my hair always falls out. But this was great, it lifted me to the lightest orange. Easy to recolor for me. I was mainly surprised before using it I had used a natural instincts dark color that is semi perm. It got it all out. GREAT. cheers!Lana J.

  • It Removed My 8-month Old Black Dye Out Of My Hair 4 Star Rating
    I am asian, so my hair is naturally dark brown. Early last year, I lightly bleached and dyed my hair, and when the colors faded out, I was left with unhealthy looking reddish hair. So I ended up dying black, that never came off for last eight months or more... Its summer, so I tried this colorfix... Its fairly easy to use... With the first application of part 1 and 2, tips of my hair turned red, and it looked satisfactory to me. But I ended up repeating the process one more time, because I thought the part 3 might turn my hair back to a darker shade(and it did!). Anyway, after two applications of part 1 and 2, and one application of part 3, my hair looks very much natural. I dont think its really the color without the dye, but there is no more of the blackness on my hair. My hair is damaged though... I think this product is very much damaging to hair than any other product I know of... But then for me, I think it was worth it. I am so glad I dont have the black dye any more... And if anybody is considering dying hair black... please dont...

  • What A Relief! 5 Star Rating
    I put too dark a brown dye on my naturally brown hair, over an old dye job that was slightly too red.I know youre supposed to leave it to the pros but I dont have the cash for that, so I got this stuff.It worked perfectly. I was a little scared before I put in the processing lotion, because it seemed too light, but after the processing lotion my hair was practically back to its natural shade. Couldnt have worked out any better.Obviously it depends on what your natural color is, what color you tried to turn your hair, and the condition of your hair, but I had great results. I also put in a serious conditioner afterwards, and my hair feels totally normal and soft. YAY!
