Iíve had this henna for about 2 weeks now 😬 major regret
    Following on from my replies above - the Scott Cornwall did work for me.. the same as the colouroops.. similar results.. it's a good quality product in this line.

    You need to rub the mix into the hair - don't just apply it.. rub it in.. blast a hair dryer at it as you do.. I did this over and over... this is how I started to make a difference to the colour.. the Scott Cornwall doesn't require as much rinsing as the colouroops (which we cannot get in Australia).

    The Jobaz decolour is harsher.. and works VERY well.. but it is HARSHER!! You take a risk when you use it..(or any of these products depending on the condition of your hair) that your hair will break... I never left the jobaz on for over an hour (they say you can leave it on 60 mins) BUT it still broke and frazzled my hair after a few uses - Probably because I had been over doing it with the Scott Cornwall before I moved to the Jobaz. Simply - I overdosed in desperation..

    Trust me.. I KNOW how you feel.. I cried and went through major distress with the henna on my hair.. I wept.. hated it.. I label it as the BIGGEST mistake of my life! And I've had an NDE from illness so that's a pretty big statement... so I understand you have to get it out or at least improve the colour for your own sanity.. all I would say is if you go on this route..GO SLOW...BE CAREFUL.. one use may not make a massive difference.. I had to use these products over and over.. In my experience.. they are all similar.. with the jobaz being slightly stronger I think... aside from that, not much difference between.. so don't stress over which to use so much..

    Try the Scott Cornwall first.. it is more gentle on the hair apparently (according to his publicity). Rub it into the cuticle... follow the instructions.. apply heat.. and condition VERY well after washing.. I got all the henna out through CONTINUED and long term use of these products over quite a few weeks.

    All I can say in warning, is that once your hair starts to break.. and thin.. and frazzle.. you will start to wish you could have the Henna back and healthy hair.. so be warned.. if you take my advice, use something like olaplex in between if you go to town on these products..

    Getting henna out this way costs money... I doubt one use will be enough.. but maybe it will improve it enough so you can live with it..

    Awesome! I really appreciate all of your advice. One more question though, should I keep it on my hair longer than the directed use like colour oops, or just use it as directed? Iíve noticed people that have left products on their hair longer have had better results. Again, thank you for replying 🙃

    At your own risk.. you can try for sure.. I only ever left mine on for an hour because I was worried about damaging my hair.. as it happens, continued usage of these products daily damaged my hair, despite me following the instructions.. A couple of other things I did, was to use camomile tea in a spray bottle with lemon juice to lighten the hair in the sun.. that really worked.. but added to the damage.. I didn't do that for long..

    If I could go back in time.. I would follow the instructions.. only use once a week (I was SO desperate to remove the colour) and in between baby my hair with olaplex..

    A hairdresser friend said something to me that finally got into my brain...she said, that hair in good condition, no matter the colour, always looks good.. in other words, you can remove the colour.. but if it leaves your hair in bad condition with breakage, a straw like texture, then it won't look as good as the hair you have now with the henna in and in good condition...

    Its true, I am difficient. In G6PD and the henna caused the anemia, but it took years to happen. After I used colorfix on my hair and removed it, all was better! Colorfix smells better than color oops and removed henna better for me. We are all different, for sure!
