CPR Color Pigment Reducer reduces permanent oxidative color pigment and metallic minerals and removes unwanted pigment without lifting natural hair color. The antioxidant vitamin complex helps preserve the integrity of the hair.
How To Use
Fill applicator bottle with 4 fl. oz. of water (tepid, room temperature), then slowly add crystals. Shake to dissolve, forming a gel. Shampoo hair and rinse. Work get into hair using maximum pressure of palms and fingertips to ensure saturation. Apply a professional processing cap and expose to heat for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, then shampoo and rinse thoroughly 3 times (Malibu C Un Do Goo Shampoo recommended). Note: Due to relative low pH, gloves are recommended.

"I am not sure if it was something I did wrong or what. The story goes like this. . I have a manikin head I wanted to try this product out on, so I wash her hair in Great Clips clarifying shampoo, I applied the solution and followed the directions. She did get left under the heat for around 40 minutes. (Under the impression it can't be over processed) Well, as soon as I started to rinse my baby's hair out I could tell it was dreading up! I spent 3 hours combing her hair out. I did not use the Malibu un-do-goo shampoo. Please someone tell me what went wrong, do I really need to buy the shampoo to make a difference> after getting her combed out and loosing lots of her hair I tried shampooing her again just to get her dreads back. I am frustrated and sad about her hair."

"Love this product!"

"I did this treatment a few times on myself first before using it on clients. I had colored my hair blue black several months ago and decided i wanted to go back to natural without using bleach. It took alot of the pigment out the first couple times but then i decided to recolor to a light brown ash and a dark blonde ash combined (ASH WAS USED TO NEUTRALIZE ALL THE WARMTH I HAD LEFT IN MY HAIR) big mistake, the color combo left me with nearly black hair all over again. I am back to square one. I purchased 2 more cpr packets and used them both in a row on the same day. It lifted some of the color and left me with very red hair. I am now going to try to lift more of the color using rusk elimin8 color corrector and the tone with some light beige blonde. So im a little frustrated, i guess the effectiveness of this product depends on the type of hair color used as well as level."

Best product ever!
"I was skeptical when I first heard of this product but I thought I would give it a try. I had layers of reds and browns dye on my hair from changing my color a lot. I was looking for a healthy way to remove color with out damaging my hair to put a direct dye on my hair. we applied this I sat under the drier for 15 min. and my hair was blonde! I would use this product again and recommend it to every one to use it. Its truly the best product I have used."

"I took a stand test for a client who needs Féria removed and was turned down by multiple other stylists in my area because of the metallic salts. Not only did this remove all the old pigment, I was able to bleach the test strand safely with Virtually no damage to the hair (I used 40 Vol in a foil on my test).
In response to the previous review, the mannequin most likely had synthetic hair or some combo of synthetic/natural that melted under the heat, not the usage of CPR."

"After doing TWO pravana color extraction processes, I still couldn’t see blonde I KNEW was under red violet Féria. Used one packet of this a few weeks later and found blonde! It feels strange in hair, however, could just be overall condition of her “can’t make up her mind/impatient teenybopperism”"
