How does ZALON work?
ZALON works by reversing the oxidation process. The artificial colour molecules in your cuticle are
trapped and cannot release because they have expanded and become too large to leave. ZALON
shrinks the artificial colour molecules and washes them from your hair revealing your lightest previous
shade. The shade revealed may be lighter than your natural colour as bleach and ammonia from previous
colourants may have lightened your natural pigment.
Who is ZALON suitable for?
Anyone that has coloured their hair with an oxidised colour. ZALON will remove all colour irrespective
of how long you have coloured your hair. There are certain conditions however, such as silicone damage that
could trap the colour molecules. This will prevent ZALON from penetrating the colour molecules.
Why should I use ZALON?
Use ZALON to change your colour safely and gently. In 60 minutes you can be the colour you want to be!
When should I use ZALON?
When you want to change your colour. When you want to detox your hair, ZALON will remove residue from
shampoos, conditioners and styling products as well as pollution. ZALON will remove build-up often found after
months or years of colouring your hair.
Why is ZALON better to use than bleach stripping?
Bleach is a harsh chemical that will dry and damage your hair stripping your natural pigment. ZALON
simply removes your colour without stress or damage to your hair and scalp.
Does ZALON remove all Colourants?
ZALON is very effective at removing all Home and Salon oxidised permanent dye colours. It does not remove
non-oxidised colours for example: Semi, temporary or natural plant colours. Typical examples include: Henna,
Staining Fashion Colours such as Green, Blue, and Purple etc. XXL type colours can also be unpredictable.
Bleach cannot be removed as this is not a colour it has lightened the hair’s natural pigments. If you are
uncertain which type of products you have used in the past we recommend you carry out a simple Strand Test
for a preview of the result ZALON will achieve on your hair.

No. ZALON will remove all colours and reveal the real and natural condition of your hair. ZALON is a

Why do I have to rinse for so long?
ZALON Activator and Remover will shrink the colour molecules but if you do not rinse thoroughly they will reexpand
and re-oxidise causing your hair to darken again.
Can I do a partial removal?
Yes, although it is not adviseable. Instead of 60 minutes check the removal results in good lighting/daylight
every 10 minutes until you achieve the desired result. There is a risk of reoxidation with this method as colour
molecules will remain in the hair.
How many times can I use ZALON?
You can use ZALON as much as you wish within reason. ZALON is not a harsh chemical process and will not
damage your hair but colourants often contain bleach and ammonia, therefore you should limit the use of this
product. It is always good to rest your hair and scalp after any chemical process so we would suggest you allow
time between colours and removals.
