I’ve already written this once but I somehow deleted it after posting it - nooooooooooooo I screamed at the computer and clicked on everything to get it back but it’s gone to the cyber dustbin. So I start again - word processing it first this time!
Before christmas I decided to dye my hair a black/red/purple colour (I don’t know why I must have been going through some sort of early mid life crisis!) But I then got asked to be a bridemaid next year and wanting to have a normal hair colour I decided to try to dye my hair back to dark brown but having got fed up of the mess hair dye makes I thought I’d give this ago - Colour B4 hair colour remover.
This is exclusively available from Boots and it comes in two strengths:
- regular - for general colour removal and correction
- extra strength - for long term colour build up and very dark, intense colour
As I had used a dark dye I decided to buy the extra strength formulation (£11.99).
Colour B4 works by shrinking the artificial colour molecules allowing them to be washed out and returning your hair to it’s LIGHTEST NATURAL SHADE. It also contains a buffer to regain a natural pH level which allows you to dye your hair again after if necessary.
You apply the mixture to your hair and leave on for 20 minutes. You rinse for 5 minutes (it’s recommended this is done stood in the shower), apply the buffer for 1 minute and the rinse for a further 5 before applying the rest of the buffer for a minute and then finally rinsing out.
So when I got out of the shower I looked in the mirror and my hair looked considerably lighter than I remember but I dried it and it turned out a light brown colour with coppery tones and not my normal dark brown.
But Colour B4 hasn’t bleached my hair it has simply done what it said it would do - returned my hair to it’s lightest natural shade. Even thought I originally had dark brown hair it did have alot of natural copper highlights in it and this is obviously my lightest natural colour.
I would defiantly use this again and would recommend this to other people. The only thing I’d say to other people is to take into consideration any natural highlights in your hair as like me the colour of those could end up being your whole hair colour.
