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.

  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.

  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 2 out of 5 by from Now I know better They use a lot of fancy words in the description to avoid saying that this is bleach and in addition to removing your dye will LIGHTEN your hair. I was told at the store this was gentle and would be good for my hair. It’s fried now and my roots are bleached. Not happy. I’m giving 2 stars because it did remove a lot of my old color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Obliterated my hair Bought this to remove a color I recently did that came out incorrectly. The girls at the store raved and raved about how non-damaging it would be on my hair after I explained my dye history from the last 8 months and how I wanted something as easy and gentle as humanly possible. The instructions said for permanent to mix both the activator and developer together and leave 45-60 minutes. 10 minutes in and my hair was a disaster. I’ve never seen my hair so damaged and splotchy. It’s not coming out in chunks but my hair in places can stretch like a rubber band. Please please please don’t use this and don’t listen to employee advice. It’s basically just a 20 volume bleach disguised as a color remover. It’s straight bleach. I’ve been dying my hair on my own for years and it’s never come out this bad. Please just don’t. Don’t ruin your hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroyed my hair I’ve been dying my hair for over 13 years on my own, i had dyed my hair blue for my wedding and decided it was time to remove it in preparation for A job interview., my hair was relatively healthy and I didn’t particularly want to compromise it with bleach, so I decided to try this after being told it wouldn’t damage my hair nearly as much as bleach. I followed the instructions to the T and while I give it points for removing the color, it also bleached my natural roots and basically melted my hair. I can’t run a brush through it without massive chunks coming off and it feels so much more damaged than I’ve ever experienced through bleach.I’m thoroughly disappointed because my hair is an absolute train wreck

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Despite bad reviews IT WORKS!! I dyed my hair black a couple months ago and was skeptical because of the reviews but my hair is back to my natural color which is brown
Date published: 2020-12-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most of the color is gone, new color sticks well This worked pretty well, did a lot of lightening. However, it did not work as well for my green streaks. I had a light red base with punky colors of blue, forrest green, and purple, and they all washed away with some extra lift, but the green was spotty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not enough to cover my shoulder length hair I have been dying my hair for years. My hair is think but it is shoulder length. Never have I ever had a hair colour experience that did not cover all my hair. This did not have enough to cover half my hair. I didn't leave it on for the full time because I did not want drastically two tone hair. Needs twice the amount. Conditioner smelled nice and product didn't smell too bad but very disappointing.

Will this remove orange artic fox dye from my hair?

Asked by: Veehrdez
Yes, this product is a bleaching agent so it will remove both any kind of boxed dye pigment, and your natural hair colour pigment.

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?

Asked by: hayleyp7
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.

Will this remove blue hair dye? At the top of my head is blue and more towards the ends is a green-ish color. 

Asked by: Sophia12401
It depends on the type of dye, not just the color. I had several colors in my hair and there were permanent and temporary. the temp wahed out immediately but the blue permanent only got lighter. that was because I didn't adjust how I applied it to that section. Follow the directions. It does work.

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.
