Color Prep removes product buildup and regular oxidative hair dye by shrinking the dye molecules, allowing them to be washed away. In most cases, your hair will not return to your natural color due to the oxidative process of the hair dye which permanently altered the hair pigment, revealing the color of the hair after the dye had oxidized it. Aloe vera is used to nourish the scalp and hair follicle, encouraging healthy growth while providing shine and hydration to the hair. Soy protein helps to rebuild damaged, brittle or dry hair giving it a healthy appearance.

Recommended for those who have dyed their hair too dark, an undesired shade, or would like to remove a current color for an easy transition to their next color application.

Color Prep is not formulated for and will not work on direct-application dyes as well as bold shades such as pinks, blues, greens, purples, etc.


  • Always check the condition of the hair before your next process, including use of hair dye or bleach. 
  • Processed hair is often more porous. To avoid your next color appearing too dark, apply a deep conditioning protein mask for 20 minutes beforehand.
  • Always do a STRAND and PATCH test before your next color application.
