One N Only Colorfix removes unwanted permanent hair color regardless of how long it has been in the hair. Controlled usage allows color correction to specific areas. One N Only Colorfix is designed for full or slight color corrections. From 6 to 16 applications depending on whether use is for partial or full color correction. Effective on all hair types - leaves hair in optimum condition. Does not contain ammonia, bleach or formaldehyde.
FOR FULL COLOR CORRECTION: Apply to dry hair. 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. 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. 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. 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.) 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): Mix 1/4 oz Part 1 Color Reducer + 1/4 oz Part 2 Conditioning Catalyst + 1 oz shampoo. 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. When the desired shade has been reached, rinse thoroughly and shampoo.
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. One N Only 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.

Totally exceeded my expectations! Even after reading all of the glowing reviews (and I went through all 70 pages of reviews!), I was still skeptical about using Colorfix: I know that black is awful and often near impossible to get out of hair without frying it with bleach. My natural hair colour is a light dirty blonde, but I haven't seen it in years, as I've dyed my hair every colour under the sun. The latest venture was, yes: dark brown, almost black, with box dye no less. My theory was that if my hair were dark, I wouldn't colour it as often, as the bleaching process is a pain. Lo-and-behold, I got sick of the black a few months in, and wish to (eventually) return to my previous platinum blonde locks, with black underneath. Shopped around online, found Colorfix, decided to give it a shot. WOW. I wasn't expecting much, to be honest, but I was blown away: after having left the Colorfix, with some Unred mixed in, on for around 40-45 minutes, it stripped the black from my previously blonde hair, leaving me as a (temporary) gingery redhead - I can work with this; lightening it back up to blonde will be a breeze! This stuff even managed to strip 5+ years of black dye from the under-layer of my hair, leaving it more of a light brown. This stuff worked wonders and far exceeded my expectations. And as far as the smell goes, it's a 2 at most on a 1-to-10 scale of stink. If you've ever used sulfur-based skin products, those smell far worse. No need to over-exaggerate the 'stink' of rotten eggs, it's extremely tolerable. January 25, 2015
Works Amazing For awhile I was debating a lot of hair strippers. Someone told me that this one worked well so I gave it a shot. I`ve used it for multiple different hair colours, and it always strips out the colour pretty well. One time it stripped it all out but mostly you might need to do 2 applications but either way it does get rid of colour pretty well. I used it on demi-permanent dark red dye last time and it turned my hair to an orange colour that was fairly lighter than the red and it tells you, you can`t use it on semi or demi-permanents. So you can, but it won`t lift out as well. As for smell, it smells like rotten eggs and it isn`t just during the process, the smell lingers in your hair for awhile. It lingered in my hair for up to 2 weeks. You mostly smell it while washing your hair. It is pretty gross. But I guess that`s only a minor disadvantage to this product. January 14, 2015
Worked.. sorta.. I had bleached with 20 vol. to get rid of level 3 demi perm brown that'd gone black and while most of it came out nicely, I missed a big splotch right on top of my head. I thought I could just go ahead and cover over with the dye I'd gotten (Ion Color Brights Aqua) and it might just have a somewhat interesting effect. I was wrong, so I went back out and got a box of Colorfix hoping to wipe the slate, so to speak, and take out that demi-brown splotch in one fell swoop. I was wrong yet again! While it did do a -great- job of taking out the demi-perm brown (the 2 stars), it did nothing against the Aqua. Nothing.. didn't budge it, so I used the rest of what I had left over from the first application, full head application and again, nothing. That's why I gave this 2 stars.. while it didn't fry my hair, it did leave it stinky for a while and rather dried out, but I contribute some of that to the bleach. I ended up buying another tube of the Aqua and doing a whole head application of it and it turned out well. All in all, might be good for most box colors and demi-perms, but against a strong semi on porous hair, it wimps out big time. January 7, 2015
well, i was hesitant, but it totally worked. so my hair is naturally very dark brown. i bleached it myself to ombre it, that turned out okay. i got sick of the caramel color and dyed it blue with manic panic after midnight for like 8 months, refreshed it every 6 weeks or so. once i decided i didn't want blue anymore i was like oh no... this is going to be brutal to get out. so i tried the dandruff shampoo thing and the vitamin c thing and everything else other than bleach and none of it worked. so i bought some burgundy dye from sally's and dyed my whole head. well my roots were burgundy and the rest of my hair went very very dark and i looked ridiculous. so i bought this like 2 weeks later and used it two days ago. i followed the directions almost exactly. left it on for 25 minutes, used heat periodically. i could tell before i got into the shower and started shampooing that it had removed all of the dye - all of it - and that i was left with the caramel ombre i had before. i used the processing lotion and it seemed to darken a little but it's still a caramel color. my hair has stayed this way for two days now, so it seems to have worked. i am going to the hairdresser to have my hair dyed burgundy the right way on friday so i'll see how that turns out! anyway, i can't believe how well this worked. it smells weird but who cares? i can't believe it didn't turn my hair orange or weirdly streaked or spotty. way better than expected- definitely a good buy.

I had bleached my hair and put Splat Emerald green in. It's fading now and I want to change colors, need to get it back to at least blonde-ish so I can tone and go from there and looking for alternatives to bleaching, especially since it'd probably take a couple of gos to get light enough. Will this strip it back to how (at least close) it was after bleaching, or back to my natural (darker) color instead? I read another similar product takes it back to your bleach, just checking this should too?
A:It will take it back to the bleached color I bleached my hair then put manic panics automic turquoise and purple haze in my hair for 2 months the purple basically washed out the turquoise faded to a green I used this and my hair is a nice blonde nicer then when I originally bleached it came out orangey
A:It depends on really how damaged your hair is after the bleachings, but I did use this a day after using bleach with 20 vol. and putting semi-perm dye on top, and I got some crunchy dryness after using this stuff twice in a row.
If your hair is already crunchy dry or squiggly/stretchy/spaghetti damaged, don't risk it. Give your hair some TLC and time to heal, even if it's just a couple of days and some very deep conditioning and go from there. If your hair is in the straw-like stage, one hit with this stuff shouldn't hurt that much, but again, follow with the TLC and deep conditioning.
I have super long hair. I hate having to buy bottles upon bottles of product. I've been told this has more than one application but should I get 2 in case? I plan to get rid of some dark black/reddish spots I have first and then wait a day or two and apply another application to my whole head which is currently red to get it to what will mostly be a orange or yellow?
A:I would say you would need more than 1 box. My daughter has shoulder length hair and we had to use the entire contents of the box in order to get all the hair saturated. In our experience, my daughter had emerald green hair and after applying this, there was no change in the color. It may be different with black hair.
I used this on black hair and my hair is now different colors dark brown, reddish brown, and medium brown in spots and my regrowth is light reddish brown. Can I put permanent medium brown violet 4/6 on it and have it come out one color? Do I start at the roots or the ends? Or do I need to redo the color removal and hope the rest comes out and I have one color all over and then put the color on? I think it didn't all come out because some was semi and Demi dyes.
