A lot of rinsing is required to work properly
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 :)
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
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! ------------------------------------
Did exactly what was promised. I dyed my hair and it ended up SO dark (almost black) and looked horrid. Followed instructions and my hair is now normal and I am so happy!
The best !!!!
I have so many colors in my hair as i like change . Everytime i decide to strip color out i ALWAYS use jobaz but ,,,i have learned that by not using bottle C it works alot better. Its stripped out bright reds,jet black,purples... I highly reccomend it
I've had packet red hair for more years than I care to remember, but I decided that I wanted to take that extra step and go really REALLY bright. But of course to achieve such brightness one really needs to have light coloured hair. So I bought a box of Max Strength (well, 2 actually, because I thought I'd need to do a double application), and earlier this evening I followed the instructions to the letter for the first box and gave myself the treatment. The instructions said that once I'd finished the process I'd probably need to dry my hai...r to see the results properly. As soon as I got to the mirror (with my wet hair) I was in total shock.... I had gone from being a ravishing redhead to someone with very light copper hair! I was in such disbelief that my hair had lightened so much. Despite the fact that I look about 10 years older with light hair (and the fact that I now look like my mother) is a very small price to pay for light coloured locks, particularly as it's going to get a treatment of Pravana Vivids Red tomorrow. I am just so impressed with this product - it does what it says and more! My hair still feels great and not at all stressed. The only downside is that the treatment is a bit stinky. In fact it's a lot stinky. Even after washing & conditioning my hair with my usual shampoo afterwards, I can still smell what I can only describe as a bitter smell. But I don't care, but I can now get the bright red that I want! Hoorah for Jo-Baz! Would totally recommend this product to anyone who wants to lighten their hair. It works!! And it was easy to apply. Instructions were very thorough. Stinky, even after using normal shampoo and conditioner afterwards.
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.
