Do not buy this product!!!
Please do not buy this product !!! what it says it does is not true it has left my hair in a terrible condition and don’t even get me started on the colour it had left my roots. Bought a L’Oréal Natural dark blonde box dye which was a little darker compared to my natural blonde colour and for some reason the dye had turned my roots ginger so when reviewing the best hair colour removers Jobaz hair colour remover was the best one to buy ! SO NOT TRUE !!!! When applying it the product to my hair it instantly turned my roots a brassy Cooper aswell ...as my whole head when on the box it clearly states that it removes the permanent hair dye from your hair and restores your natural hair back without any damage as well as it removes darker shade which I said above , lot of crap! I had high hopes for this product to give me back my natural hair colour because of the reviews I read and it left my hair in some state I can’t even describe to you I’ve left a picture of the way it left my hair. I was in tears for hours at the fact my hair was ruined so please take my advise and do not buy this product

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.

Better than other brands I used
It really strips out semis and even permanent colours out. I had used this multiple times in the past when ever I wanted to go few shades lighter. Sadly they don’t sell JoBaz in Sydney anymore for some reason :( so I used the Scott Cornwall brand and did nothing and just wasted money on it. So I would recommend this to anyone but the only downside is just the smell.

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

I'm so happy I came across this product. I was in semichem looking for hair dye not knowing this even existed. I've got dark brown hair but have been dying it for years as have lots of greys sneaking in. I dye it about every 6 to 8 weeks. I have psoriasis on my scalp so the medicated shampoo I use tends to duĺlen my colour quite fast. For a long time, the ends of my hair have been dry, rough and make my sleep bob quite bulbous. Little did I know its because of the use of permanent dyes over the years.
So, I read the instructions a couple of t...

Really worked so well
Hi there friends so just some tips, I previously had bleached blonde hair which was a shade of ash blonde to be exactly L’Oréal lightest ash blonde hair dye I think it was called, I went from very light ash blonde to what I thought was going to be a nice dark brown, big mistake. The colour came out almost black and I made a mistake, I gave the hair colour a chance to fade for about two months before making another mistake lol. It faded and so I put a light brown hair dye over the top for some reason thinking my hair would be the light brown sha...de I originally wanted mistake . So I went ahead and purchased jo baz, I have used this product soooo many times and every time it works without fail! Here are some hot tips to ensure it works for you, some people have written the hair had gone darker or nothing happened, you need to ensure your follow the instructions strictly. What I did was I put the product through combed it through, wrapped it in glad rap and I actually made a bed on the floor and used my floor heater ( that blows hot air) and lyed there for an hour. Not only does the heat HELP to remove the colour faster but the end result after 15 minutes of rinsing and using the buffer - my hair had turned a medium blonde. Use heat! A blow dryer or something trust me. It works better. Now I can start again and go the right colour because it’s completely stripped me back to two months ago.

Was okay but even max strength cant remove oldish hair colour...
It smelled gross but I didn't really mind, it sorta hurt but thats natural since it's made of chemicals.
It did get rid of some of the old colour nearf the roots and the buffer smelled really nice, if you've just made a hair colour mistake this would be very good for removing.
Also I had many blonde streaks with green blue colour on them.
And it costed about 12$?

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!

Very gentle on hair
The smell is over exaggerated. It has no horrible smell like ones say. It definitely removes colour from hair. I left it in for the full 60 minutes. I was so surprised. I recommend try it. It can’t hurt you. And make up your own mind. You have nothing to lose. I have almost waste length hair so used two boxes.

Winning product !
Of course I was sceptical of any store bought colour remover but after reading positive reviews I wanted to try and remove my chocolate brown box colour . I am a natural red head and hadnt lightened my hair previously . I followed the directions to the letter and although i have short hair I decided I would do the initial rinse for 15 minutes as I was worried about feedback on the smell of the product. It does smell a bit like rotten egg but I found it no worse than anything I'd smelt at the hairdresser in the past . The product removed the co...lour and left me with my natural colour and I found the condition of the hair actually quite soft as it had a hairspray buildup that was also stripped out . I would 100% recommend this product but definately advise to rinse for at least 15 minutes and read all the information before you begin #superhappy
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
Works just like it says
In many of the reviews I see people say the end result colour was yellow or orange. Of course it was, the colour remover returns your hair to BASE colour. If you are naturally blonde, your base is yellow. A natural brunette, your base is orange, mature persons your base may well be white/grey with age. No product on the planet will give you back your natural shade, just your natural BASE. When you coloured your hair, your natural colour was gone for good & the only way to get it back was to grow it all out. So, yes the product does work & it works well. I dyed my hair brown for years & this product takes me back to my yellow base as I was blonde as a kid. Then I can dye it to any shade of blonde. Horray!
Smells like cow crap
This product works but honestly the smell is so bad it actually smells like poo anyone that came near me kept gagging and everytime I washed my hair after the smell came back just as strong. NO THANKS
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
Worked for me.
I used colour before at twice the price of this one and guess what...this one does the same job and the smell is less pungent than colour before as that one was unbearable. My hair was dark brown and I'm now a nice shade of gingery red. I actually love my new hair. Highly recommended.
Questions & Answers
Will this product remove grey/silver hair colour from blond hair?
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???

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.
