Colour B4 Review

Now it's getting warmer, I wanted my hair a little lighter for the summer months. I've dyed my hair a lot of times, a lot of dark colours (dark brown, red, purple ect..) creating a lot of colour build up. Initially I was just going to go to the hairdressers to have my have stripped, but that is pretty expensive. I'd heard a lot about Colour B4 and how amazing it was for removing colour build up, so I bought it on a whim hoping it would save me some money.

You can either get the regular one, or the extra strength one. I got the extra strength one, and I purchased it from Wilkinsons for around £8. Wilkinsons was the cheapest place I found it (£11.99 Boots) So If you are wanting it as cheap as possible, have a look round first :)


They Say:
"Colour B4 hair colour remover is the safest and most effective way to reverse an undesirable hair colour application. Colour B4 shrinks the artificial dye molecules in the hair, enabling you to simply wash them away. What?s more Colour B4 does not touch your natural hair pigment so you are left with the colour which lay beneath your artificial shade."



Before applying it to my hair, I did a patch test and a strand test. You don't need to do this, only if you are prone to allergies, or have sensitive skin, but I thought it would be better to be safe than sorry! One of the things I heard a lot before using this, was the smell. Everyone said it was really horrible and I thought, how bad can it be really? Oh, how wrong I was! It really is awful, it smells just like rotten eggs, but I do think it smells worse when you're doing the patch test than when you are actually applying it. 

Firstly, I mixed Part A & Part B together and applied that to my hair. Once it was all applied evenly to my hair, I covered my hair in cling film this was recommended if you have long hair as it locks in the heat which makes it work better. Then it was time to wait (30 minutes for Regular Strength, 60 minutes for Extra Strength) 

After the time was up, it was now time for the rinsing stage. I rinsed my hair for 10 minutes, make sure your run your hands through your hair whilst doing this to release the colour molecules. Now it was time to apply half of Part C (Buffer) this smelt a lot better, just like apples! Lather up Part C, and leave for a minute to absorb, and then begin to rinse for a further 5-10 minutes.

Now it was time to apply the rest of Part C. Lather up and rinse just like you would with a normal shampoo and once you've ensured it's all been rinsed out you can towel dry your hair.

As soon as I rinsed it out, I looked in the mirror and I did see a difference but it wasn't major but I liked the colour regardless. ColourB4 say that you should wait until your hair is completely dry before making judgement, so that's what I did!

Once it was completely dry, I noticed a lot of difference, but I really did love it. At first I thought 'OH MY GOD I AM GINGER' but actually, I think that's my natural hair colour! I'd dyed my hair for sooooo long I'd forgotten haha.

Whilst I was doing the ColourB4 process I uploaded a picture to Instagram and I got a few comments telling me how 'It doesn't work' but I can assure you it DOES work. Make sure you read the instructions, even if you've lost them you can still find them online and make sure you follow the instructions! ColourB4 also recommend you use two boxes if you have thick or long hair. My hair is pretty long, but I got away with just one box.


ColourB4 also state that 'ColourB4 takes you back to your natural or lightest shade. It will return your hair to it's natural colour if the artificial colour applied is darker than your natural level. If you have previously bleached, or lightened your hair, ColourB4 is unable to return to the natural pigment. If you have applied a very dark or fashion colour (such as vibrant red or black) the cuticle may have been permanently stained. ColourB4 cannot remove cuticle staining.

I was pretty apprehensive upon using this, there are a lot of bad reviews out there, but I took the chance anyway and I'm glad I did! I got rid of the dark shade and have a perfect base for highlights!
