8 :1 Hairdye Remover Review (Scott Cornwall Colour B4)

- I am going to say, there are very few products that I believe in, that I think will actually work when they have such LARGE claims. I especially didn't believe in this product. So, these are totally my opinions.

-Ever dyed your hair and then thought 'oh sh*t!'?'

- I've done it, we've all done it! Trust me, my hair has been many colours! The hardest to get out? RED! If you're not sure, don't do it!!

- My friend, has been adamant that she will not be dying her hair since I have known her. Then one day - she turns around and surprises us all and says 'I'm going to dye my hair', now my friends know I have dyed my hair a LOT, so she asks me what I think, to which I reply 'you should probably only use a semi-permenant colour, I mean, If you really don't like it . . at least you won't have to wait for it to grow out. . .'

- Did she take my advice? did she 'eck as like!!!

- So she dyes her hair this gorgeous purple colour. Not in your face purple. . but a dark brown that gleamed in the light. I loved it. She hated it. Twenty-something years of staring into the mirror and having a nutmeg colour looking back at her had marred her vision (or something to that effect)

- Therefore, we set about trying to remove it with something called Scott Cornwall Colour B4 Hair Colour Remover Extra. (moouuuuuuthfull!)

- I do know of a girl I went to school with who had some luck with this product, but the reviews are all over the place, with some people screaming it's praises and some wanting to bury it in the soil. Salons? yea, we could go down that route. . . but who has the money? (says the girl who has just had a full head of foils done - woohoo! no more dark blonde! another time Han, another time!)

- I know in America, they seem to have a lot more choice when it comes to things like this, but here, we had the choice of this. or err this!

- With that in mind we did not have high hopes.

- The mixture, when mixed together, smells like cat urine. (and it lingers, every time you wash your hair for the next fortnight, it's going to re-smell like cat urine.)

- Our bathroom stank, our entire house stank, the kind of stink that makes your eyes water and you want to stick cotton wool balls up your nose!

- Clingfilming of heads is actively encouraged! allllriighhhhtttt! (no, I'm not 8, I just act it!)

- Buuuuuuut, after hours of applying, stinking-out, and rubbing, if we are completely honest, it got her hair back to it's normal colour. If a little redder to begin with, over the next couple of washes, it almost completely came out and her hair is back where she started. With NO visible death to the existing hair. (i.e. doesn't feel like straw, like it does when you bleach colour out)

- I feel the need to also mention, that this is for the removal of hair DYE, not bleach, I mean if you've bleached your hair, you're stuck with it, you haven't added colour to your natural hair, you've removed it, and it's quite likely you may end up looking like this. . .

  1. omgod @ cat urine! yikes! O.o
    Well, that's good that your friend got her natural hair color back! :)
    I have never dyed my hair, it's kind of scary, because of hearing of hair stories gone wrong. O.o

    Oh and thanks for your comment on my colorful skulls! :D
    Means a lot, thanks!

  3. @Eliza - you have the complete opposite mentality to me when it comes to hair, I'm like "yeea bash it on, it'll be reet!" I think it's because my mum has been dying her hair for as long as I remember, so, no fear! and you are welcome! I love playing around with polymer clay!

    @Paula - yes it's a disease, I'm too indecisive to stick with one thing for too long!

  4. This is useful, now I have the opposite problem, as in, I have to add some color.
    Buut last time I asked for natural highlights I ended up with very broad pieces of my hair looking lady gaga yellow and it was strange . Then they had to tone it down, and in the end it looked a caramel brown very close to my own color and I was so disappointed. All I wanted was that sunburned end of the summer gisele bundchen kind of color, sometimes it is so hard.

  5. I've never had highlights done at a salon before - i did them myself until I was 15 when I dyed the entire thing black, then I went white, through all the colours of blonde, then I toned it back down to blonde, then I went to the salon to get it red, but it came out BLACK and then I let it fade to brown and did it red myself (long winded way of saying I've never really experienced highlights at a salon before) but this time I sucked it up and booked in, I only booked with the least experienced girl there and told her under NO CIRCUMSTANCES was it to end up yellow, she did an amazing job and I am so pleased, when I get them topped up I think I'll go a little greyer. . . but I think it totally depends on the salon. Im sorry yours doesn't seem to listen! natural doesn't mean skunk! and an inch does not mean a foot! - silly hairdressers! That's why I always did it myself!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. oh and the horrendoid picture at the end - is bleaching the red out. blegh. so hard to get rid of. . and I was so fed up by this point. . . this is the reason I left it to go natural for a couple of years before attempting highlights now!

    suppose you added a little content? I mean, I

    I mean "8 :1 Hairdye Remover Review (Scott Cornwall Colour B4)" is kinda vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post titles to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything've written.
