*I received one packet of ColourB4 Hair Colour Remover. As always, all opinions are my own*
I’m sure we’ve all had a colour that just really didn’t look good. I’m also sure we’ve all done a dodgy job at home and then been too scared to go back to your hairdresser. I’ve definitely had my fair share of shocking colours, especially because my hair is dark, while my regrowth is grey.
The first time I died my hair, it was a complete disaster. I am so thankful that it was one of those 8 wash outs. The box said it was going to be a nice subtle plum colour. My natural hair colour is dark brown so I wasn’t expecting a great difference. Oh boy, how I was wrong! My hair turned a nice shade of red…one that is more like a fire engine than the subtle change I was going for!
Funnily enough my other memorable colour disaster was with a red too. Although this time the colour turned out exactly as the box said. The only trouble was that it only took on my roots. So I had about 5 cm of bright red, and the rest was a dark brown. I couldn’t afford to go to a hair dresser at the time so I just had to wait for it to grow out…oh did I mention it was a permanent colour instead of a 8 wash out this time!
Thankfully, now when we screw up our hair colour we don’t need to head to our hairdressers with out tail between our legs. There are great products like ColourB4 Hair Colour Remover that remove the colour quick and easy.
ColourB4 comes in two strengths, regular and extra. I had a blue black put in my hair last year so I opted for the extra strength. I had been wanting to put another dye in my hair for a while but I was hesitant to do it myself because of how dark my colour was, compared to the regrowth. So I was eager to give this product a try.
The whole colour removal process with ColourB4 was so easy, seriously. If you can put your own dye through your hair, then this will be a walk in the park. You’ll probably need to set aside about 2 hours to do it though, depending on how thick your hair is and the pack you have used.
ColourB4 works by shrinking the artificial dye molecules in your hair. It boasts being able to return to your natural shade, however if you have bleached your hair the colour after the removal will be lighter than your natural colour. The red keeps coming back to bite me, but with the ColourB4 it’s actually a nice brown with red highlights.
The ColourB4 formula contains an intense nourishing treatment which allows you to colour your hair straight after you use their product. However I found that my ends were quite dry after (it has been way too long between trims) so I haven’t put a colour through it yet. Although I found after I washed my hair with just conditioner my ends were fine.
Overall I am happy with the results of using ColourB4 Hair Colour Remover. I’m glad that it managed to remove the black from my hair without too much fuss.
