What is it?

Regardless of the type of hair color you’ve used, trying to get rid of it can be a problem. Depending on the specific type of color like a temporary, semi, demi or permanent hair color, there have been few options in the past. Most color removers are made from persulfates and ammonia which is like a regular bleach. Some are made from sodium hydrosulfite which claim to be less damaging. Whichever you use, the end result is usually the same: the color is hardly moved or shifted off tone. Worse yet the hair is left feeling damaged and abused.

PUNKY COLOUR OFF™ HAIR COLOR REMOVER goes beyond these types of products.

  • It does contain persulfates which are the best in removing the new direct dyes and permanent hair color dyes but it does so without creating excessive damage to the hair like traditional persulfate based removers of the past. The ACTIVATOR cream is specifically formulated.
  • Conditioning ingredients help to buffer and keep the hair in a moisturized condition to improve shine, combability and condition.
  • The ACTIVATOR is oil-based which means the primary ingredient maintains the optimal condition of the hair.
  • It’s a cream and not a powder so it is balanced to do the job efficiently. The cream activator is mixed with a cream 20 vol peroxide which is also a buffered solution which helps to keep the hair moisturized and in optimal condition during the removal process.

  4.  Refer to chart for portion amounts and timing correlating to what type of dye is being removed. (Must keep mixture ¼” off scalp when removing permanent hair dye.)
  5. Using spoon provided, combine Colour Off™ ingredients, per the chart, into a non-metallic bowl. Mix to a creamy consistency.
  6. It’s very important that you mix the Activator and the peroxide thoroughly, making sure that there are no lumps or undissolved particles in the mixture. Failure to do so may produce less than desirable results.
  7. Using tint brush or sponge provided, apply mixture to the areas of the hair in which you wish to remove hair color. (Hair texture, tenacity, and porosity may affect results.)
  8. You may also use your gloved hands to make sure that the areas you want to remove color from are thoroughly covered. Just make sure that there is a complete coating on all of the hair strands and that there are not lumps or clusters of the mixture in any given area.
  9. Leave Colour Off™ mixture on hair for pre-determined amount of time based on type of hair color removing.
  10. Gently shampoo to remove Colour Off™ mixture. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
  11. Discard any unused portion of mixture.
  12. Towel-dry hair.
  13. Apply Hair Mask with IntraBond™ from the scalp to ends of the hair. Work product through to evenly distribute. Gently comb with a wide-tooth comb. Leave-in for 5-10 minutes.
  14. Rinse hair thoroughly.
  15. Dry hair. Now your hair is ready for your next Punky Colour hair color!

Allergy Test:

  1. Use soap and water to clean a small area on the inner surface of the forearm.
  2. Apply small quantity of Colour Off™ mixture to area.
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. If no irritation or inflammation is apparent, it may be assumed that no hypersensitivity exists.
  5. Remove with mild soap and cool water.
  6. Do not continue use if irritation occurs.
  7. The test should be carried out before each application.

What should I expect to see after the color is removed?

That’s going to include a lot of variable factors which depend on the type of hair color, the amount of build up over time and the condition of the hair.

Semi/Demi Permanent Hair Color

Usually semi/demi permanent colors will either be removed 100% and the hair returned to its bleached state. With some semi/demi permanent colors 75-80% of the color will be removed which is still enough to color over.

Permanent Hair Color

Permanent color will return the hair to its level of lightening which the permanent hair color lifted it to. It won’t return the hair to the natural hair color but to whatever level it was lightened. In most cases the pigment will be removed to expose a reddish to orange decolorizing of the natural hair color. A cool based color can then be added to restore the color to its natural level or a more fashion color can be applied using the lifted pigment as a base for formulation.

Colour Off™ can be reapplied to remove any residual pigment but it’s recommended that the hair be allowed to “rest” for at least 24 hours before reapplication.

How should I apply Color Off™ to the hair?

That’s a good question since Colour Off™ can be used to remove so many kinds of color. If you are removing all of the color in the hair and it’s longer than 4 inches then you’re going to need more than one kit. Regardless of hair length, we recommend applying Colour Off™ at least ½” off the scalp and almost to the ends, leaving about ¼” to ½” of the ends without the color remover. The reason to not apply to the scalp directly is simply that this area will decolorize faster because of the heat of the head and in some cases become brighter than the main part of the hair. Leaving the ends out helps to minimize any potential damage to this sensitive area. To balance out the full-color removal, apply to the mid-lengths of the hair and allow to process for 15 minutes and then apply to the scalp and ends. Process until the desired amount of color is removed.

If you have color growing out only apply directly to the areas with the color. Don’t put it on any other areas because they’re not needed. Separate sections with clear plastic wrap to help avoid overlapping or transfer of Colour Off™ to other areas of the hair you don’t need to be removed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful The texture is not even remotely creamy, it's grainy and smells strongly of chlorine. My hair is less than shoulder length and i have a massive undercut and yet one box didn't even come close. The results are so splotchy and uneven when my hair was fading evenly and wasn't even damaged! DO NOT USE !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing at taking out artic fox Green and blue! Green and blue are TERRIBLE to take out when changing hair color but this product did it in one go and didn't need to bleach after. It was amazing! Completely took the color out no problem

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! Worked great on my hair. It got all the blue/green out instantly. Good refreshing smell. I would have needed 2 for the length of my hair. And it didn’t damage my hair like aome said it would. My hair was soft and manageable. Only problem I have is not with the product itself, is the fact that I cannot find it at any Sally store. I needed a second box but there was none left, and I had gone just the dat before. They are all sold out and I don’t know when more will come in. My suggestion is they keep more in stock. A must have!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad reviews from people who can't read In every bad review this product receives, the human behind it is saying ' It's bleach and the box doesn't tell you that' or some other variation of not being warned about the bleach. That is a LIE. The box DOES tell you that it contains a cream bleach and peroxide, in multiple places. It's not even hidden somewhere random, either. Crystal clear right infront of the supposed readers noses on the box and I'm the ingredient lists. I love this product. As long as you know what you're doing and have performed a patch test so you know you're not allergic to it, and you get to see how your hair responds to it- You'll be just fine. Will this work better on some hair types/dye jobs better than another a hair? Yes. Absolutely. The results depend on the state of your hair, and what kind of dyes you're trying to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lets set the record straight by all means, im not hair stylist or anything, but after reading and laughing at some of these reviews im gonna go ahead and add my 2 cents and clarify why some of these reviews are not accurate. 1.) THIS PRODUCT LITERALLY STATES AND WARNS THE USERS THAT IT CONTAINS BLEACH. HOW THESE PEOPLE LITERALLY HAD THE AUDACITY TO COME ONTO THIS SITE AND LEAVE A BAD REVIEW BUT NOT PRACTICE THEIR READING ABILITIES IS BEYOND ME!!!! the websites literally discloses that this product DOES CONTAIN BLEACH AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHY A PATCH TEST IS RECOMMENDED. if you truly do not test a product before using it, then you’ve already failed yourself. oh which is another thing they recommend, you know that PATCH TEST thing on the product???? 2. if you use splat on your hair, please don’t even bother bashing this product. you’re opinions are so beyond irrelevant considering you’ve used a product thats basically fabric dye and you literally ruined your hair the second you added that stuff to your hair. believe me, i used splat once in high school and loved it, up until i wanted to change my hair color. huge lesson learned. nonetheless, if you use splat, either shave your head now or go to a professional and hope they dont drown you in a pool of their tears. 3. this product is a COLOR REMOVER WHICH CONTAINS BLEACH, i can’t mention that enough, therefore, DO NOT PUT IT ON YOUR VIRGIN HAIR AKA THE NEW HAIR THAT GREW OUT AT YOUR ROOTS. bleach = lightener. ahh, yes, yet another thing the product recommends not doing *APPLYING TO THE SCALP*!!!! if im not mistaken i believe the box also states something about avoiding applying this product 1/4” of your roots or something. so in the simplest way i can put this, NO PUT ON NEW GROWN HAIR!!!! 4. if you’re someone that dyed color on top of color, again, go to a professional and dont rely on a color remover. when you strip your hair as a dye on top of dye person, you bring out the layers lying under the first layer of color. there’s no knowing how the results will come out, so dont strictly rely on a color remover to do the job of your careless hair choices. 5. if you’re someone that applied hair color to your dark hair, because this product CONTAINS BLEACH, expect the risk of your hair lightening instead of just going back to its original color. and yes there are hair dyes that are specifically formulated and meant for darker haired people so they cant avoid the lightening process. 6. anyone that claims they’ve been “doing their hair for years” is no hair expert. the reality of hair is there is no controlling the results because it all depends on HOW YOUR HAIR RESPONDS TO CHEMICALS, PRODUCTS, AND INGREDIENTS. sorry but your years of at home box dye doesn’t mean that you’re some professional or that your hair was ruined by a product containing ingredients that your hair literally could not withstand. products dont make promises or guarantees for a reason. so you risk a lot when you decide to make changes to your hair. which is where, again, test strands are your friend. 7. understand that when you apply hair color and certain brands, your hair never equally absorbs colors or lightener equally. some spots may come out dark or lighter than other parts, the same goes for remover, some areas may absorb and react better than others strands. this is normal, however may be corrected. 8. if you’re someone that buys one box when realistically you need 2+ but you dont want to “spend that much money” you deserve the crappy results you end up with. understand, and brad mondo will defend this, PROPERLY SATURATE THE STRAND YOU ARE APPLYING THE PRODUCT TO. this means, LOTS OF PRODUCT IS BETTER THAN NOT ENOUGH PRODUCT. the good thing about buying multiples, is if its unopened you can just return it. but when you lift and color, the smartest thing you can do is buy more product than run out in the middle of doing your hair. sorry but thin applications arent going to properly do the job, so be generous with products you apply to your hair. 9. understand, this product is formulated more for the removal of their hair colors. so if you have another brand of hair dye or have box dye and you turn to this product, expect that it may not remove the color as well because there are other ingredients that may not properly react with this products ingredients to properly remove it from your hair. 10. understand, this product does contain bleach, however its not just straight bleach, you shouldbt just “buy bleach” and dismiss color removers altogether. there are other active ingredients in color removing product to specifically remove color whereas bleach can and will just lift color shades, or simply just brighten it. now that all those clarifications are out of the way, let me show you the steps i took to turn my cousins hair from punky color turquoise to punky color flamingo pink in one sessions. let me start by saying she originally has black hair, so we did bleach her hair first then dye it blue. also, just like lightener, i did section, apply product to thin layers and i did saturate each layer, then i foiled each strand with just regular kitchen aluminum foil just to accelerate the chemical process. i didnt apply heat or anything, just tightly wrapped the saturated sections. we used the entire bottle of developer along with the entire activator, following the directions on the box. left the hair in foils for 40 minutes (note that we timed 40 minutes from when i finished applying the remover to all the desired sections), while also checking certain foils to ensure it was processing correctly and ensuring there wasnt any spots i missed. this product worked INSANELY well. it looks like the color was just disapearing as it processed. we rinsed, shampooed and deep conditioned. after washing and rinsing, we were happy with the results so we towel dried her hair and applied the mask in sections and with generous globs. note that this product may dry your hair though!! after applying the mask, we allowed 15 minutes for the hair to absorb whatever moisture and then simply rinsed, no shampoo no conditioner, and then i blow dried with a brush and added the punky color pink flamingo, literally the first strand absorbed the color SO WELL, obviously color shows up better on blond hair, but i ran the brush with the pink dye once and was shocked how well the strands grabbed the color. the end results were crazy vibrant and applied so freakin well. i highly recommend dying with punky color for vibrant semi permanent hair colors that are vegan (personally i dont think arctic fox even compares to how great this brand is for colors), pairing it with a color remover by the same brand to comfortably transition between colors is something i highly suggest. again, i cant promise it will work as well as it did for me, but this is just my personal knowledge and experience with dying and using color removers. i wouldnt knock a product until you try it. i still went against the silly and incompetent reviews and we definitely found an awesome product that we love for her hair. one thing i also recommended after color removers or changing hair colors, it’s using products that adds moisture back into your hair. deep conditioners, masks, bond smoothers. and avoid hot showers and absolutely avoid clarifying shampoos, they can strip your color. if you didnt already know, punky also sells shampoos & i believe conditioners that deposit the color into your hair to extend the color life! the brand has multiple products for hair color, extenders, remover, and hair care & its awesome. thanks for attending my ted talk and good luck on your hairventures!

I need to remove a cream semi-permanent henna from grey hair. It was only applied 2 days ago. I've washed the hair 3 times now. Once with citric acid. Wondering if this product will be affective in my situation?

You can give it a try, but in my experience henna is very hard to remove.

I have natural reddish brown (auburn) hair that I colored dark brown using box dye the beginning of this year. The dark brown turned out to be more black than anything. Now my roots are grown out and it looks awful. Would this stuff work for me?

Asked by: Ksmith21
In my experience, this will work but be aware that it's going to strip your hair. I ended up never needing to bleach my hair blonde after using this product. It's also super drying so make sure you have a good conditioning treatment for once it's done. But yes, this will remove any box dye from your hair.

Would one of these work on long hair? My hair is almost down to my butt. Needing the blue out to do red.

Asked by: Jazziebear94
My hair is also very long..but I was doing just a partial wash in the back but since it sounds like you're doing all your hair I would get 2 boxes and mix them both just in case. Better to have too much than not enough..btw this stuff does work really good and it took out my dark blue pretty quick so definitely keep an eye on it. Good luck..Brenda

I just used this product today and it comes with the mask stuff to condition it after, but my hair is still super dry, what can I use from now until when I bleach my hair?

Asked by: PaulaC78
Coconut oil will do wonders. Let it sit in over night to get the best results. Just melt the oil in the microwave, get the oil everywhere just like you would with conditioner, then wrap your hair so the oil stays on your hair and put a towel over your pillow to save it from oil stains. You could also try a hair mask with a 50/50 with olive oil and coconut oil (my hair almost reaches my shoulders and I only need about an inch high of a 60z Ball jar), throw one or two eggs in, and a good bit of honey (fill an average spoon twice), too. (make sure to heat the oils before putting the eggs in!!) You can leave that in for at least an hour (you can try longer) and this should help. Just make sure to wash it out well, lol. You can expect your hair to get oily faster after the first wash but if you stay with your normal wash schedule it shouldn't be an issue after that. I have done this several times and it always leaves my hair super soft and shiny.

I have extremely short hair? Can I save the unused product for my next dye job I do?

Asked by: Mattimae
I don’t recommend it because you need to maintain the proportion of activator to peroxide developer. And that’s pretty hard to do unless you can measure out what would be left of the activator and peroxide. If you’re using it to remove semi permanent color then the ratio of activator to peroxide is 1 to 1. If you use it for permanent hair color then you need a 1 part activator to 2 parts peroxide. I don’t see how you could do that accurately. If you don’t get the proportion correct then you won’t get satisfactory color removal results.
