Beware if you have asthma
The minute I started to put this on my hair I had a bad asthma attack from the fumes it gives off. Take care using it if you gave any kind of respiratory disorder.

Worked but not properly
I used this brand on my purple hair and it removed the purple but my hair is now blue/green at the bottom. I don’t know how this happened but it did. I don’t recommend using it
Purchased in April 2020 for $7.42.
Steer clear, just awful.
Ive been dying my hair since my teens, using numerous products over the years. I saw this in savers UK, it was the cheapest there and was within my budget. Fast forward after application, looked like it worked (I go bright ginger). After rinsing it went back to dark brown/black! All it's done is made my hair smell and wasted my money. Now got to purchase a more pricey one that actually works!

I have used colour before a few times over the years and have always had amazing results however last night I decided to remove my black dye again having last dyed my hair black about 3 months ago and used the same dye I always use. I left the colour before on for 60 mins and did all the correct washing stages, when rinsing my hair no colour could be seen leaving my hair usually I see the water rinsing a different colour. My hair is literally still black no colour left my hair at all. Is it possible it’s out of date and didn’t work for this reason? I am a little upset as I now have to go out and buy another in the attempt to lift it again
Turned hair grey
I bleached my hair few weeks ago put a dark blonde on used this to get rid of the dark blonde went up stairs with yellow hair as the remover had worked used half the buffer and the colour of the buffer was a grey colour and now my hair is that colour so it’s redyed my hair I’m not impressed I followed the instructions this is my first time using it as I normally use the wella colour remover I won’t be using this again. I now have to go to shops and start all over again not happy at all
My hair was dyed burgundy colour & I wanted to grow it out. I had about 4 ins silver root growth & looked ridiculous. In a bid to hurry things along I purchased this product. My hair went a horrible rusty colour, one could say "my own fault!! ok but the smell from the product is horrendous. It's like the old fashioned perming solution, ammonia & after 5 weeks & a brutal cut it still stinks!!!!
My brown hair is now orange!
Followed instructions, my hair is now a light orange. I will admit my hair colour is months old. I didn’t want to dye it again, I wanted my natural colour back, the same as the two cms of regrowth I have. Well what a waste of money, cos it’s not stripped the colour it just turned it orange, and obviously that’s a different colour to my light brown regrowth!
Beautiful hair half head broken
Gosh I'm hating my hair going to take years to get my broken pieces back to shoulder length looks like a mullet
I'm trying to just be patient but so unfair feeling like this I want my hair back
Left With An Odour To Die For!!!
Didn't work, but far worse it's been 10 weeks now and the worst odour ever is still hanging around, I used enjoy showering but ever time you get you hair wet the worst ever smell joins you.
I have been dying my hair black now for about three years- long time - so I decided I wanted a change. My mum went out and bought me this. I followed all the instructions and even left it on for an an hour. My roots and front have lifted to a cooper ginger, and the bottoms of my hair are still black. Not to mention my hair feels like straw, which I'm very dissapointed about.
Maybe, I need to apply it a few more times?
Physically sick from smell its left in my hair
My hair absolutely stinks so bad 5 days after using this I am shocked to say the least its day 5 and my hair still reeks so bad I'm scared I'm going to have to shave it off this should not be allowed its a disgrace ive never had a smell that just won't leave and the smell is gut wrenching seriously I have thrown up from smelling this my partner will not sleep in our bed and my pillows and linen now smells not good enough what can I do
Turned my hair ginger!
This product did not return my hair to its natural colour as claimed, turned my hair completely ginger and dried it out. Had to re-dye it after using. Would not recommend this product.
Ruined my hair
Months after using this chemical I have lost a lot of hair and it as caused significant damage and breakage. DO NOT USE. My hair is terrible now. I wish I'd just kept the colour it was as at least it wasn't damaged.
Did nothing but left me with awful smelling hair
I saw the most minimal change in my hair colour which should have had a big change, as there was a fair bit of colour build up, it left me with possibly one shade lighter hair, if even that, for the almost hour this thing takes to do I was hoping for more. AND THIS SMELL! WHEN WILL IT LEAVE. Yuck. Awful. Would not use again.
Worked kinda for half an hour..
My natural hair colour is an orange blonde, I have been dying it dark brown/almost black for a while now, stripped it the first time bought out the roots and made the rest a medium dark brown, did it again, the roots went natural about 10cm down and the rest was reddy brown with dark brown highlights, but after half an hour it went a darker colour after doing a bleach wash to try lighten to ends more.. We read previous reviews and rinsed and rinsed and scrubbed the buffer right in, don't understand what happened, very disappointed, my hair also felt like straw after washing out the buffer, so had to condition to brush through it or it was just a tangled dry mess.
Would recommend spending the extra at a hair salon.
literally so bad
used it on hair that i has dyed once, and it left me totally ginger, it was terrible. plus hair felt like straw afterward. had to go to the hairdresser immediately
Results don't last!
I've tried this product several times (because it's the only one my local store sells) and every time it unevenly lightens my hair by only 1 shade and it gradually returns back dark within a few days! I give up, I won't be buying this product again.
MY HAIR WENT BLUE
This was quite expensive for my end results.... I was lightening my hair out with these remover for a new shade of colour my hair was already blonde but I was looking for something a little lighter for a brighter colour when I dyed it... during And after the application my hair went blue I followed the instructions to the very last point and my hair come out darker blonde in places and other blue and honestly it's a really great thing that the dye I am putting through my hair next is blue or I would be way more dissapointed in these product an...d the smell was almost unbearable is smells like rotten eggs.... it also dried my hair out completely it was disgusting I had to use conditioner just to get a knot which formed because of how dry my hair went that was with warm water running threw it... It's been almost a day and I can still smell that smell in my hair and it's horrible I will not be buying this produce again...
Product isn't as good as you'd think!.
I am naturally very light, I've been growing it out for a fair while now so I thought it was time to remove the unwanted colour on my ends. I purchased 2 boxes from Priceline Pharmacy and used them on seperate days. The first box covered my hair in its entirety starting on the ends first. I then applied it all over then, I wrapped in cling wrap and followed the procedure to its exact instructions with the use of a timer. I noticed a very subtle change. The ends were terribly dark, the mid section very red and the roots (virgin roots) were very ...light. 2 days later I used the second box concentrating on the ends, then mid section and lightly applied it to my roots. The results of this second application was extremely depressing next to no change and my roots (again my untouched roots) were blonde with a gold/copper tinge. Now, in my opinion I'm completely depressed about this whole venture and the $65 spent was down the drain, I should have saved and waited to go to a salon. I have 4 kids, so I rarely I mean rarely spend money on myself, especially on hair and makeup products. I'm now left between a rock and a hard place because, I don't want to dye my hair darker so it's all been for nothing and I don't want to spend another $30 on another box which may present no change and I don't have the money to go to a salon after waiting a large chunk on no results. Not impressed at all. I strongly suggest saving your coin and go to a professional, then you have a safety net!. Thanks (For Nothing) JoBaz Annoyed customer Deanne
I purchased two packets of colour remover in max strength and neither of them worked! All it did was make my hair dry... Wasted $60 and 2 hours of my time for nothing, thanks.
Questions & Answers
I dyed my hair an auburn red colour however when I used the Jobazz Max strength the colour didn’t come out at all?! It was a semi permanent L’Oréal hair dye. Someone help
I used the max strength and it took me to ginger. I then applied a copper ginger hair colour and my hair went back to dark almost black hair???
I used hair colour remover as I had purple hair now it’s gone a copper colour can I use it again to get to my natural colour?
Realise you made a mistake and want to get back to your normal shade without dishing out on salon prices? There is now an affordable DIY solution.
Permanent hair dyes work by expanding artificial dye molecules in the shaft of your hair so they can’t be washed out. JoBaz’s hair dye remover contains a formula that reverses this process and shrinks them so that they can be washed out.
The maximum strength edition works in 60 minutes and the normal strength product works in 30 minutes. Simply combine the activator (part A) and remover (part B), massage the product into your hair for the required time and then rinse off to remove the hair dye.
What reviewers thought:
Many reviews have claimed that the product worked very well for them, lifting previous dye jobs with ease.
A point of contention among the reviewers was the smell of the product which can be overpowering and unpleasant. Another key issue is that if the rinsing is not done properly and rigorously enough, the dye molecules will not be washed out and will expand again, therefore, putting the dye back in the hair.
