Gets Rid Of Horrid Hair Dye In Less Than An Hour!
I had a "brilliant" idea of putting dark brown permanent dye over my lovely auburn hair - long story short it came out almost black and I looked like Marilyn Manson's twin with my pale skin and blue eyes.
After I finished cursing to myself, I popped down to Woolworths and bought this blessed stuff. It takes a bit of mucking around, lots of showering and thinking of suitable activities to keep a 3-year-old preoccupied while mummy has 3 showers but my hair is back to my natural colour with minimal cost and hardly any damage. I highly recommend this product for getting rid of crap dye jobs.
Very effective and does what it's supposed to.
I overdyed by light reddish brown hair and was very unhappy with almost black hair result which was far too harsh for me. My daughter told me about colour removal products so with an important interview coming up I decided to give it a go. I researched the various products in the UK which are all around the £12.00 range from national stores. However, while out shopping in a local cheapie bazaar, I bought this for £5.49. I checked again on line and found this was highly recommended so good buy! Gave the You Tube tutorial by an impressed bl...ogger a quick look and went for it! This does not have the rotten eggy smell that a lot of other products are supposed to have, it went on easily to my shoulder length hair and I then wrapped in cling wrap. I set the timer for 30 mins and checked the hairline which was looking good. Reset timer for another half hour then showered it all off. Used the Buffer which shampooed really well, hair was squeaky but rather matted so rinsed off and applied my usual spray VO5 leave in conditioner. After letting it dry naturally my hair is actually in better shape than before the disasterous dye. It is back to a lovely all over light blond/brown and in super condition. I would highly recommend this.
This stuff is brilliant, yes it takes an hour but $25 and 1 hour of my time is so much cheaper than a hairdresser would charge. My hair was originally Auburn but had gone bland, flat brown after years of intermittent dying, it has been blue black for around the last 8 months so I was worried that this product may not work as well as I was hopeing, it worked better, my hair has come out my original beautiful Auburn that I haven't seen since I was 14 years old. Could not be happier, highly recommended.
I have just used this stuff and couldn't be happier with the results! I was so worried it was going to be a disaster, even though I read the instructions 3 times and followed them to a tee and read hundreds of reviews.
I haven't seen my natural colour in almost 20 years and now that I have it back I'm wondering why I ever started dying it to begin with! It's such a lovely colour. I went from a horrid very dark/almost black brown, back to a lovely warm chestnut.
The smell isn't the nicest smell in the world but if these are the results, who cares?
I had bought a dye ready to recolour but I think I'll throw it in the bin and keep my natural colour :)
Cannot reccoment enough!
Awe full red hair GONE!
My hair had really red hair dye in it with brown and a blonde having been put over it to try an mask the horrid red it had been there for months with now really bad re growth . Nothing worked , but this product really did , it took all of the red out and left my hair a kind of straw colour that is very close to my natural hair. My hair felt very rough when I was washing the product out UNTIL I conditioned and then it was ok but I used an oil based heat protective product in my hair before I dried it as well . I had planned to re dye my hair af...ter I stripped it but I was happy with the overall colour and condition after using this product so I left it without a re dye . I payed $30 for this product and while I thought it was a bit expensive for a home treatment compared to dye I am happy I purchased it and used it. It really did do what it was supposed to do.
Oh My God I Cannot Believe It!!!
I never leave reviews for anything but I could not go past this one. I literally just finished my first round of the max strength product to get rid of colour build up (red, black, brown) that would've been there for years. I wish I had taken a before picture because it worked an absolute treat! I'm now so much closer to my natural ash blonde (bit brassy) but I'm planning on doing another two rounds of this then a semi permanent blonde so I'm not concerned. I'm shocked at how well this worked - my hair feels awesome, it lifted so much dark I ac...tually look like a strawberry blonde now. I followed the instructions exactly as it says & timed everything perfectly but my god so shocked. This product has saved me so much money & time sitting a salon chair - unbelievable!! UPDATE!! I did three rounds of this, the third time there wasn't so much difference but none the less amazing. I am FINALLY back to blonde after years of trying then being fed up at how slow the process is & dying it dark again. This is an absolute god send for hair obsessed people, it smells revolting but well worth it :)
Didn't even remove temporary rinse!
I have naturally auburn hair and I died my hair with a mahogany colour that only last 8 washes. I hated the colour immediately and wanted to go back so the day after colouring I used this (following instructions exactly) and barely noticed a change. If it can't remove a temporary rinse how could it remove permanent colour..? It was a waste of time and dried my hair out!
Hair went orange brassy colour and I rarely dye my hair , now scared it will fall out because of how dry and brittle my hair is after use! And the smell!! OMG!! Stinks!!!
Perfect solution without the salon price tag
Absolutely love this product. My hair has been continuously coloured for the last 15+ years and it had a lot of buildup of old colour and lighter bits from foils (in attempt to lighten) and balayage.
So without the budget to go to the salon for colour correction, I decided to give this ago after seeing it in big w & then reading reviews. I needed two packets for my long thick hair and I did the process twice in order to get a good, even result (I recommend this to ensure you get lots of product on every section of your hair). It is absolutely...
Fantastic, love it
Absolutely love this product. I have 15 years of colour buildup, mostly reds and purples. I decided to go back to my natural colour ( strawberry blonde) and picked up JoBax extra strength. I was pretty pessimistic as I've tried other brands which made my hair bright orange (think ronald macdonald). I was wrapped when I tried it and my hair was so much lighter. A little orange but i expected that. I did a second application yesterday and its even lighter. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanted to get rid of colour and colour buildup.
Did not meet my expectations. AT ALL!
So, after weeks of research and doubt in whether or not this product would lift my coloured chocolate dark brown hair to a lighter shade, I finally did it last night. I have left my natural colour grow out for a few months, so I had a goal to reach. I didn't care if he product made it go bright orange, as was expected, so long as it could be toned to my colour. I followed all of the steps to a T and even rinsed for double the time, and it did nothing. My ends are still as they were. Everything but near the crown of my head is. This could be colour build up, but it didn't lighten it at all. I know this has worked for others, but be wary. What a waste of money!
The struggle to natural colour is still underway... :(
This was amazing, I had years of colour build up and it was almost black/red. I wanted my light ashy softer brown colour back by didn't want to spend 4 hours in a salon. $30.00 and 40 mins later it had stripped all the unwanted uneven colour out. I was blown away how mon damaging and even it looked! It was a overly brassy orange tone but the perfect even base for my light ash brown colour. Now I have a creamy softer brown with golden undertones. DONT Hesitate if you hate your colour! This WORKS
This stuff is incredible! I have been dying my hair for 18 years and I have been every colour - red, purple, all shades of brown and eventually black which I have been doing for the past 4-5 years. I am growing my hair out and didn't want to cut it so I thought I would try a new colour. I read a lot of reviews on this product both positive and negative and I was a bit sceptical but thought I would give it a go anyway.
It was super easy to apply - just like a normal hair colour. The smell wasn't the best but it wasn't as bad as a lot of peopl...e said it would be. I followed the instructions which were simple and straight forward and my hair went from black to light brown in about 45 mins! My hair feels soft but maybe a little dry which will be fixed after another wash and condition. This product is amazing and super easy to use. I can't believe it only cost me $30 to completely change my hair colour. Highly recommended!!
Did exactly what it was meant too.
I've dyed my hair for close on 35 years, starting with temp colours at 14 and moving to permanent when the first few grey hairs showed up about 20 years ago. At no time in that period have I not coloured my hair, usually using quite bright reds and purples, so the build up was substantial. Having now decided I want off the colouring merry go round I needed to reduce the jarring shock from the grey regrowth and this has done the job brilliantly. I was surprised at just how much it removed and lightened my hair without any bleach.
Although ...I will be doing one more treatment tommorrow to take it back a little more I'm more than happy with the results as they stand. Yes my hair is a bit brassy but I was expecting that and will fix it now with temp dyes until my own colour grows out. Follow the instructions carefully, especially rinsing out and keeping to the time frames advised (apparently it will only work for just over an hour and then the colour won't come out), and you really can't go wrong.
I coloured my naturally auburn hair with a rather crazy fire-engine red colour, which looked awesome for a week or so, but then it dawned on me that I'd just turned my hair bright red - permanently. I tried Head & Shoulders shampoo, frequent washing and pretty much everything else, but the colour wouldn't budge from my hair. I figured I was stuck with it until it grew out! Then I walked past this magical stuff in Priceline, and decided I had to just try it. I normally need two boxes of everything as my hair is waist-length and thick, but I purc...hased one box as I was a bit wary as to whether it would even work. This stuff definitely does smell, but so long as you have good ventilation in the room, it's not too bad. You do have to work fairly fast, as once mixed the product loses its strength. I was amazed to find that one box covered my hair completely, and I even had some left at the end. I waited thirty minutes for development and then rinsed for 10 minutes, and what surprised me the most was that the water ran clear from my hair - I was expecting to be standing in a pool of bright red water as the colour washed from my hair! I'm not entirely sure how this product works, but it manages to flush the colour from your hair without making the water run coloured. The directions do not say to use conditioner at the end, but I did as my hair was extremely dry by that point. Sure enough, I noticed straight away after stepping out of the shower that my hair had lost its bright red sheen; huzzah! I'd missed a few patches though by accident, so I did end up re-doing the process on those red areas. After the second attempt though, all of my hair was back to my natural auburn colour. Thanks so much JoBaz for making such a great product! ------------------------------------

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.
