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.

Don't Let the Smell Keep You From Trying!!! So I did a ton of research on trying to lift dark red hair dye (that was a month old) without having to bleach it (my hair has some damage from previous bleach). I did intensive research on this (ColorFix) vs. Ion Color Corrector vs. Color Oops. I knew all would smell but the important thing to me was something that was not too expensive and not too many steps. I have extremely thick hair and I am not exaggerating, Im talking Topanga x Rapunzel x Cousin IT, so it always take me about 4 boxes of Hair Dye to cover my hair. So I liked the idea that this (ColorFix) was meant be be for multiple uses. I bought two and ended up using both. THE SMELL IS NOT BAD!! It smells exactly like muted perm solution and sulfur (eggs). Thats all its not intense didn't make my hair stink or stink up bathroom. But it worked perfectly!!! Got all the red out of my hairs and did no damage!!!!! October 4, 2014
Excellent! Delivers! I have medium brown, very thick naturally curly hair. I've done black low lights on it for years. Last year I got sick of the dark and had it professionally processed with a caramel color and gold highlights. I liked it but it was a bit too busy for me and too gold so I went back to the brown and black chunks. Well, as I get older I feel like I'm looking older and when it was lighter I got so many compliments that the color made me look younger. When I had it professionally done it took 4 hours in a salon and I really didn't want to go through all that again. I figured if I could get the overall color to it's natural brown state or at least lighten it up then I would only pay to have the subtle dark blonde highlights put in. I asked someone from Sally's what they recommended I used since I thought I'd have to bleach it out. She told me about Colorfix and told me to go home and google it along with Color Zap. I read the many awesome reviews on it so I decided to try it out. Mind you my hair has a very awesome natural curl which I usually wear most year round (It's humid where I live in the summer so it's pointless to straighten it). But since it's cooled down now that it's autumn I've started straightening it again. One concern was the damage it may cause my hair...but...here's my honest opinion and a few tips that I also googled and did research on as far as after products. **All purchased from Sally's** Price...extremely reasonable considering it could cost you a fortune to have it professionally stripped. PROCEDURE: Easy as 1-2 (and I skipped 3). Mixed in a tupperware bowl, I even saved about a 1/4 of each bottle (1 & 2) in case I needed to fix any spots that didn't get lightened. Grabbed a towel, application brush, a couple clips and rubber gloves. It goes on easy, it absorbed well and wasn't messy. I did it sitting at my dresser in my guest room and no slop flew anywhere. SMELL: Yeah, it smells like rotten eggs...I opened a window and blew a fan at me towards the window. Nothing unbearable at all if you are used to any kind of processing with dyes or perms. TIME: Took me about 15 minutes to totally saturate my hair (I did it in sections starting with the underneath ends/roots, the middle ends/roots then the crown. Wrapped it in a plastic cap (also purchased from Sally's) and set the timer for 30 minutes. WASHING: Someone mentioned a clarifying shampoo so I went to Meijer's and picked up a .99 bottle of Suave Clarifying shampoo and started washing it out in my kitchen sink, Set the timer on the microwave for 5 minutes, washed/rinsed, washed/rinsed, washed/rinsed 3 times total by the time the timer went off. Looked in the mirror and WOW!!! Totally lightened up! It looked like it was going to be very coppery...brownish/copper but regardless as my plan is to color it in a few days with a medium golden brown so I'm not worried at all. CONDITIONING: I went in the shower to rewash and condition (and shower, obviously). Instead of my normal conditioner I picked up a sample packet "Mystic Devine" conditioner which has Argon & Manoi oils in it for about $2.59..from Sally's. I washed with normal shampoo and let this conditioner sit in my hair for about 5 minutes while I did the rest of my shower business...shave, wash face, etc...then rinsed out the conditioner. STYLING: As I said I recently started to straighten my hair and figured I'd do that as well immediately following the Colorfix. I wanted to see what the damage was if any and a true visual of the color and if I got rid of the dark everywhere. Easier to see when straight then when curly. Because I was prepared for damage and didn't want to fry my hair anymore then I figured I WOULD with the Colorfix I picked up some Beyond the Zone Control Freak Primer which I applied underneath the Blowdry Addict which is what I usually ONLY used when blow drying it straight. I proceeded to blow out my hair. COLOR BEAUTIFUL!!!!! All even, brown/copper, with strawberry highlights (I'm not keeping it this color because it's not what I want, but it looks great)! The other products, ie: Conditioner, *control freak primer* and *blowdry addict* must've been one heck of a combo because it took half the time to straighten it and I've never had more silky, shiny and frizz free hair PRIOR to putting my curling iron through along with a ton of different products for anti-frizz. I plan to wait a couple days to apply the desired color to it upon reading reviews of people saying that the new color dye made their hair go right back to dark. And that's because they didn't use the 3rd part/primer. I didn't use part 3 due to the many reviews I read about the product from people with similar hair type/color as I have and it had also been recommended to me by the sales lady at Sally's. So HOPEFULLY when I get the color I want in it this product will have fully delivered to get me from start to finish. GREAT STUFF!!! September 28, 2014
Gross I had done endless amounts of research on this product, it seemed to work very well for everyone that used it, however, it only managed to slightly take out some of my red hair and make it a gingery-light brown color. But it didn't do it's job enough, there are a lot of parts of my hair that are still red. But the worst part is the smell. It smells like a combo of rotten eggs, skunk, and throw up. It is embarassing to be around people that are obviously repulsed by the smell when you know that it is you. This product didn't live up to my expectations at all and i do not recomment it. I've tried several remedies for the smell so far, none have really worked that well. You can try mixing lemon juice with water and spraying it on your hair, or apple cider vinegar and water. I wish you luck if you decide to use this product, but just know that you're going to smell like serious skunk for a few days. September 27, 2014
Gets the job done. My hair has been bleached and dyed, bleached and dyed, and dyed some more. I recently got my hair to a neutral light brown color by bleaching and toning my very dark brown natural hair color. It had been about a month and I decided to tone some of the returning brass out with a DEMI permanent hair color. Well I should have used several shades lighter and left on for a much shorter time because my beautiful light brown had turned into a very dark brown color. YIKES! Not what I was going for. So I did some research and decided to take a chance a try to strip the color out of my hair without bleaching. This product works wonders! Took about 10 minutes to apply. I have short but very thick wavy/curly hair so I mixed 2oz or each #1 & #2 to get 4oz in all. This solution covered my hair evenly and I had a little bit left to completely saturate. I covered my head in plastic and left on for 20 minutes in addition to the 10 to apply. So complete application & Process took 30 minutes. After I took the bag off my hair was very light basically back to the color before I used the DEMI. Just pretty brassy. So I followed directions and rinsed for more like 7 minutes and then shampooed my hair thoroughly and rinsed again. Then I applied the processing lotion and my hair maybe darkened a tad but not unacceptably took a little brassy out also. So then I rinsed and applied a good conditioner and rinsed again. I am currently deep conditioning. Which I would recommend because the process left my hair dry but conditioner made my hair feel like butter as usual. Sulfate shampoo tend to dry my hair out regardless. So I would recommend this product to anyone looking to strip unwanted dark hair color out. Just follow instructions. Smells bad but not unbearable. Deep condition after wards. Be thorough. You will be fine. Will strip hair to a color that is ready to be toned or dyed again. Wish it was cheaper but u get what u paid for so its worth it.

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?
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.
Garnier Nutrisse Intense Light Auburn... it ended up FIRE ENGINE red.
A:Yes, this product works on fire engine red hair. It is designed for full color correction.
