What it is:
Rusk Elimin8 Color Corrector is an innovative color corrector that gently removes unwanted permanent color, with a non-progressive, precise control formula that contains no ammonia, peroxide, bleach or formaldehyde.

What it does:

For: Anyone who requires slight, partial, or full color correction. It may be used to lighten up a shade that is too dark, to fix darkened ends, or to correct an at-home color application.

What it does: It gently removes any level of permanent, oxidative hair color, no matter how long it has been in the hair. The exclusive SHSA complex reverses the bonds of oxidative dye molecules, allowing for safe and effective color removal, bringing the hair back to its pre-colored state. The conditioning catalyst promotes unsurpassed shine and condition.

How: Combine equal parts of Step 1 (color reducer) and Step 2 (conditioning catalyst). Apply, using applicator bottle or bowl and brush. The thick, creamy consistency ensures quick, easy, and precise application. Process up to 20 minutes, with or without heat. Rinse and shampoo twice, using Sensories™ Clarify™ Shampoo. Apply Step 3 (or 10 volume developer) and process for 10 minutes to activate any remaining color molecules left in the hair. If hair darkens, repeat the entire process (Steps 1, 2, and 3) up to 3 times if necessary. If hair doesn't darken, rinse and shampoo one last time.

Rusk Elimin8 Color Corrector uses a unique chemistry that reverses the oxidative color process by breaking the bonds of color molecules, so color can be removed safely and effectively by merely shampooing the hair. The thick, rich formula provides maximum control, allowing stylists to apply Elimin8 to only the areas that need color correction. It is effective on all hair types and does not contain ammonia, peroxide, bleach, or formaldehyde. Elimin8 allows the salon professional to correct virtually any unsatisfactory oxidative permanent color process and therefore it is indispensable in the salon. The product has no unpleasant odor. The kit contains a 4-ounce bottle of color reducer, a 4-ounce bottle of conditioning catalyst and a 4-ounce bottle of processing lotion. The number of applications varies, depending on whether being used for slight or full color corrections.

Saved my family!
A stylist permanently dyed my granddaughters hair dark purple and red while she was in my care. My son in law would have literally disowned me, and never allowed her to visit again. Thankfully another stylist knew of elimin8. She did three processes and the oxidized color was completely gone.Only the beautiful natural blonde remained. It did not work on the non oxidized color well, but it is not designed for that. However it did change the red part that's was bottom half to a beautiful pastel green with the natural color coming out as highlights. We can live with this as it will fade out to a natural color. I love it had no bleach and did not ruin her hair...Deep conditioning afterward left it soft and manageable...This did not damage her hair any further. It left a small Oder similar to fresh perm...can live with this too...Rusk Elimin8 saved me. So thankful!
ProsEasy on hair...removes the most stubborn color with repeated use..not complicated to do, does not change natural hair color.
ConsSlight bad smell when finished.

After months of using black box dye, I decided I wanted to put in applications for jobs that just so happen to require "professional hair". Black with 3 inches of light brown regrowth isn't professional sadly. I'm soooo glad I happened upon this product before my inevitable resorting to bleaching! First application removed half of the black dye and considerably lightened the rest! It didn't kill my hair! So happy!! I would suggest using this outside or with your windows open tho lol
ProsWorks amazingly, doesn't do much damage to hair, doesn't take long.
ConsSmells bad!

The best hair product I've ever tried
Yes, it smells like death BUT it SAVED my hair! I had been using REDKEN EQ but my hairdresser messed up the color the first time, it came out too dark the first time and the worst part is that it didn't fade at all. So I kept using REDKEN (though using lighter colors), to cover my whites and roots. I look horrible with dark hair, to be honest, and actually like my natural hair color. I'd been dreading the idea of getting highlights, but didn't want to start the school year looking like a goth and so gave Elimin8 a try AND IT WORKED!!!!! I had to do 2 applications (not the end of the world) and my scalp was a little itchy (so I'm glad I didn't need a third one!) but who cares. My color is back, my hair doesn't seem to have been damaged at all and all is well with the world!!!! (I so hope the smell goes away soon...). Also, the product is really easy to apply, doesn't drip or stain and only takes 20 minutes per application. Not super cheap, but really not that expensive. SO SO SO SO VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT.
ProsI GOT MY HAIR COLOR BACK!! My rare dark blonde color that I so stupidly dyed is back!
ConsSmells awful, made my scalp itch for like 2 minutes.

Saved Me!
My daughter convinced me I'd look great with red hair and, in the spirit of trying something new, I gave it a shot. But, yikes, I hated it! I searched the web and came across this product, and was fortunately able to get it—and for a great price. Best of all, it worked as promised. I followed the directions to the T and ALL the red dye came out of my natural blonde hair. My hair was a bit dry for a few days and smell a little like I'd gotten a perm, but the end result was better than expected! Thank you so much sleek for offering this!

Rusk Elimin8 Color Corrector
I used this twice in a row and it did not dry my hair out. I followed it with a pH balancing conditioner and was able to highlight right after without any breakage or dryness.
ProsWorked well.
ConsIt smells bad, but not as bad as some.

Works great!!
I colored my hair, a few times with "med. brown" hair color. Every time I colored my hair it looked too dark. This product took out only the unwanted hair color and left my hair its nautral color. I was so happy I decided not to recolor my hair - I'd forgotten how pretty my true color is. Thanks!

I'd wait a couple days/weeks and use a shampoo and conditioner that will help your hair get back to a healthier state.

i have blackhair from hair dye and my hair is kinda thick and short and i want allthe color out of my hair will this be enough???
You will have to apply it at least 2-3 times. It is gentle enough to do twice in one day but you should wait 24 hours before the 3rd application. You can get 2 applications out of one box, but I think 3 applications will be pushing it. Make sure to start the process when you do not have school, work, or dates. Your hair will likely be reddish or orange after pulling out the dark. Make sure to have a good deep conditioner on hand and don't be afraid to use it between each application. Each application will pull more pigment out of your hair, but it may not be a nice shade underneath. Be prepared to color your hair after because it may have tones/colors that you do not like.
