Colour Remover is a Bleach free Permanent Hair Colour Remover, that safely removes Permanent Hair Colour taking your Colour back to its former glory.
How does Colour Remover Work?
Permanent Hair Colour is held inside the Hair shaft by molecular links. These links keep the Hair Colour pigments together. They give the Hair its Colour from inside the Hair shaft. This is also known as Colour pigment.
The Colour Remover enters your Hair shaft and directly targets the molecular links. Over the 20 minutes processing time, the Colour Remover works to dissolve the molecular links.
Once the molecular links have been dissolved, the Permanent Hair Colour has nothing to anchor on to.
After the 20 minutes processing time, the Colour Remover and Colour molecules are simply washed out of the Hair.
Colour Remover does not remove your Natural Colour Pigment. Most of the time you will find your Hair is a warmer Tone after Colour Removing. This is because the Developers / Peroxides you last used on your Hair will have lifted the Hair to get the Colour into the Hair shaft.
Colour Remover vs Bleach
Colour Remover enters your Hair shaft and removes all the artificial Colour pigment (Permanent Hair Colour) from your Hair. It will leave your Natural Colour pigment intact / alone. It also leaves your Hair in great condition. Bleach enters your Hair shaft and destroys all the artificial and Natural Colour pigment. This leaves you with no pigment and dry and brittle Hair with potential damage.
What effects Colour Remover?
The Permanent Hair Colour you are trying to remove.
Colours such as Black and Reds are hard to remove, and may not be able to be shifted in one go.
The Developer you have previously used.
The lower the level Developer, the harder it can be to remove the Colour. If you have used a No Lift Developer to deposit a darker Colour on your Hair, it will be harder to remove. When you use box Colours from a supermarket they will commonly use low level Developers.
How Long you have been Colouring your Hair.
The longer you have been Colouring for - months, years - the longer it will generally take to remove the Colour, as you will have some Colour Build Up. This generally means a few applications of Colour Remover will be needed.
Shampoo and Conditioner.
If you are using a specific Colour or Colour lock shampoo or conditioner this will get in the way of Colour Remover working on your Hair. Stop use, and wash your Hair with regular Product for awhile before you Colour Remove.
What can’t Colour Remover, remove?
Colour Remover will only remove Permanent Hair Colour. It does not work on Semi Permanent Colour.
It will only remove darker Permanent Hair Colour. For example: You are Naturally a 6 Dark Blonde and you have been Colouring your Hair with a 3 Dark Brown. The Colour Remover will remove the 3 Dark Brown from your Hair, returning you to your Natural Dark Blonde, with some added warmth.
If you are Naturally a 7 Medium Blonde and you have been using stronger Developers to Lighten your Hair to a level 9 Extra Light Blonde, Colour Remover will not be useful as you have Lightened and lifted your Hair to a lighter shade. If you want to go Darker, or back to your Natural Colour, you can do this by Colouring your Hair with a low level Developer to reach your desired Colour.
