A lot of rinsing is required to work properly
Omg. I was a little worried when using this. My hair has been dyed so much. I had blonde ombre ends , then they where dyed bright red . Then I got my whole head dyed dark red. Then I was over paying the salon to keep up woth red I started dying my own hair . I went to dark and lived with it for ages. Now I am here with fresh dye on after I sing the remover. Wow . I need up going from dark black red woth red ends to am even light coppery brown all over. Pretty even all over. I could have gotten away who not dying it. It went lighter than my natural colour but I guess that was doe to the ammonia on the red colour I had been using. I am Def going to use this again when I decide to change colour. Love it
I'm Asian, 60 and have grey hair. For the past year I have been dying it dark red...now I wanted a change and used the Max strength Jo Baz.
1. had an asthma attack...I'm ok took 6 puffs and antihistamine.
2. left the product on for 45 not 30 minutes...worried the product wouldn't work (after reading reviews)
3. now have ginger hair, and that wasn't my original colour....it's ok though, I covered it with a mid brown colour.
4. I can't use this product again, it was "killing" me
Leaves your hair stinking of eggs!! Rotten ones!
This is OK as far as stripping colour from your hair, I'm happy with the results. Although I had previously used a Scott Cornwall one (which I prefer). I thought I'd try this...
I stink!! And I did it days ago! How can I get rid of this awful smell???
Great results! Just what I was after! :)
I am so happy I decided to use this product! I had been lightening my hair to be a light blonde colour for years (my hair is naturally a dark natural blonde colour). 3 months ago I decided to do something different and go for a dark brown colour. Loved it after the first time I coloured it dark brown, but as I was so light before, It started to fade lighter and went quite orange. So I picked up a dark brown dye and after I popped it on it was pretty much black! I didn't mind this and thought it would fade but it hardly did! So that's how I rese...arched and found this product at Priceline. So glad I did! It took my hair to a very nice medium brown colour and with a bit of purple shampoo, it got rid of any orange tones from the colour remover! Highly recommend!
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!
Only works on some dyes.
I paid a whopping $30 for one box (on my thick but only shoulder length hair).
I dyed my hair wine red December last year with semi-permanent dye, but in February started to dye it black again (roughly once every month) with both semi-permanent and permanent dyes.
Cons: Smells like the chemicals in a public toilet.
Takes over 50 minutes. Took me roughly 5 minutes to apply the dye. 30 to let it work it's magic. 5 to rinse out. 1 minute buffer, another 5 minute rinse. Repeat the buffer and rinse.
Makes hair very dry.
Pros: Removed all the black.
In the end, I was left with the semi-permanent red colour from last year. Still unsure whether or not I'll purchase again.
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 :)
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.
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
Great but my hair changed back :(
I loved this product but after a few days my hair went back to a dark colour. It was like I had never used the product. My hair was red/brown then when I used it, it went orange/blonde and I was happy but now it is dark brown again :(( i can't understand why. Was thinking of doing it again in about a week. But I'm also using a cleansing shampoo to lighten the colour. I was using the shampoo before I put this product in
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.
