Have you seen the step by step?

01 WHY DEKAPCOLOR ACTIVE INGREDIENT HAS A STRONG SCENT?

In fact, you can already buy the new version of DekapColor with a much softer scent. But the smell of active ingredient number 1 can be intensified when subjected to warmer places. If you have air conditioning or even a ventilated room, the smell will be much more discreet. And the effect on your hair will be always the best!

02 DOES MY LIGHTENING DEPTH DEPENDS ON THE OX VOLUME I HAVE APPLIED BEFORE?

After using Dekapcolor, coloring and OX volume dosage follow according to your hair lightening depth. For example, your hair is 7 depth (orange), so you apply a 7.0 coloring with 20 vol. OX. Your hair will close in a 6.0 shade. For this reason, it is very important to know a little about colorimetry and get some advice with a professional to better clarify the ideal volume for your case.
In this case, considering that your hair is healthy, the solution would be to use a 7.0-coloring with 30 Vol. OX for about 15 minutes. But remember, it is always important to see a professional before doing this process.

03 DOES DEKAPCOLOR USED WITH FLAT IRON CAN ACCELERATE THE PROCESS?

Heat sources accelerate the process of removal of artificial dyes, however in this case, it affects hair. It dehydrates hair and leaves it more susceptible to breakage during a chemical process after the application of the product. Even if it is a simple coloring process.

Therefore, we do not recommend using DekapColor with heat sources such as flat irons. If you apply the product correctly, according to the application manual, and do not use this type of “technique”, your hair will ‘thank you’ and you will love the final result.

04 WHAT IS THE DEKAPCOLOR SYSTEM?

Do you know all those coloring processes you’ve had in your hair? Well, they leave artificial pigments ‘stuck’ to hair and with each bleaching, it gets less and less shining and lifeless.

DekapColor was the first product in Brazil to bring you the concept of “Coloring Cleaning”. That is, it does not bleach your hair, but removes only the artificial pigments left by the applied dyes. So, you recover your hair’s health and leave it ready for your next coloring process.

05 WHAT IS THE COLORING CLEANING PROCESS?

If you are used to coloring and/or bleaching your hair, you must have notice that feeling of elasticity and lack of hair shine, right? Knowing this problem, we have developed a product to help you change your look without mistreating your hair. Besides bringing back that shine you already longed for.

And that’s how DekapColor was produced, opening a new category of hair care: the “Coloring Cleaning”. Dekap cleans and removes all dye particles from hair without removing its natural pigmentation.

06 DOES IT MAKE HAIR LIGHTER?

DekapColor is not a bleach, so it does not lighten your hair. It only removes the artificial coloring left by dyes applied before on hair.

If your hair is naturally light or if you have already done some bleaching and then applied a dark color, Dekap will remove the artificial coloring and the lighter depth will appear (including streaking previously made).

07 DOES IT WORK IN DARK HAIR?

If your hair is dark and you apply a color that is also dark, it may be more difficult to notice the effect. This is because hair depth will remain dark even after coloring is removed.

08 HOW DOES AN APPLICATION WORK?

HOW DOES AN APPLICATION WORK?

DekapColor is very easy to apply! Just follow these steps:

BEFORE ANYTHING! Perform the patch test at least 24 hours before the application to check for allergy to the product. Remember to always use the set in equal parts (1:1).

Step 01: Join a portion of DekapColor # 1 bottle with the same amount as # 2 bottle in a plastic container. Mix the two parts using a spatula or plastic brush until they are completely homogeneous.

Step 2: Apply the product to dry hair over all the colored part you want to remove, always leaving a minimum distance of 1 cm from hair root. Then, let the product process for 30 minutes.

Step 03:: After 30 minutes, wash your hair preferably with neutral shampoo, rinse thoroughly, and then use a small amount of hair conditioner. Do not use anti-residue shampoo as they may tangle your hair.

Step 04:: Remove water excess, leaving your hair almost dry. If necessary, reapply the product following the same procedure. Do this only if your hair is healthy, otherwise you may dry it out or cause elasticity to hair because of moisture. If your hair is very dry, apply only once. Never have more than two applications on the same day and do not exceed 60 minutes in a row with product in hair.

IMPORTANT! Products do not work separately or in different proportions than recommended. Do not add another product to the mix and prepare it only at the time of application. After mixing the product, it acts for 30 minutes, so do not store or re-use leftovers.

09 WHY CAN I APPLY DEKAPCOLOR ONLY AT MOST 2 TIMES ON THE SAME DAY?

At the first application, your hair will be moist for 30 minutes and then another 30 minutes for the second. With the moist, your hair is very sensitized, so we recommend the application of a maximum of 2 times on the same day. If you do not achieve the desired effect, wait at least 7 days for the next application, and hydrate your hair well during this time to keep it healthy!

If you are still not 100% satisfied or cannot wait to gradually remove the coloring, you can apply the bleaching powder after using Dekap – as long as strand test is done to make sure hair’s resistance.

IMPORTANT! Always follow the bleaching powder manufacturer’s instructions for use and never mix it with DekapColor in the same application.

10 IS IT TRUE DEKAP IS AMMONIA FREE AND HAS NO BLEACHING AGENTS?

Yes, it’s true! DekapColor has the active ingredient HMSA (Hydroxymethanesulfonic Acid), a state-of-the-art organic compound that only acts on artificial dye molecules. That is, it removes only the pigments from the oxidative dyes applied to hair, without removing its natural color.

11 HOW COLORING REMOVAL WORKS?

The HMSA reduces the artificial dye molecules, causing them to detach from your hair and with that, only the “coloring layer” is removed. In this way, it does not damage hair structure and promotes the actual removing process. It removes coloring and your hair comes alive again!

12 WILL MY HAIR HAVE ITS NATURAL COLOR BACK AFTER THE APPLICATION?

It is not possible to have your hair natural color back, because probably, in the application of your last coloring, you must have applied hydrogen peroxide to hair. After this type of process, natural pigments are removed during lightening, leaving your hair with a “faded” color in relation to the natural color.

CONCLUSION: After using Dekap, your hair will have the color in which your “depth color” is.

13 AFTER WHAT CHEMICAL PRODUCTS CAN I USE DEKAPCOLOR?

As DekapColor is ammonia-free and has no oxidizing agents, you can apply it safely if you have different chemical hair treatments, such as:
a) Straightening and relaxing processes based on thioglycolates, hydroxides or guanidine;
b) Brazilian blowout;
c) Perms;
d) Hair streaking;
e) Coloring products (oxidative).

IMPORTANT! If your hair has been processed with straightening processes containing Henê, Brazilian blowout, or metal salts and Hena, DekapColor will have no effect. But do not worry, there is no risk of damaging your hair.

14 CAN I BLEACH MY HAIR AFTER APPLYING DEKAP?

Yes, you can! However, we recommend to always perform a strand test before applying on all hair. This way, you can evaluate hair strength and ensure its health.

15 CAN I MIX DEKAPCOLOR WITH SOME PRODUCT TO ACCELERATE THE PROCESSING?

Never mix DekapColor with other products! It can lose its effect and you can even cause damage to your hair by improper mixing of chemical components. So, do not even risk doing this, ok? You can use Dekap before bleaching as it will remove the old coloring processes and this way, you can keep the bleaching product for less time in your hair. That is, you accelerate the bleaching process and still preserve your hair’s health.

IMPORTANT! Never mix Dekap with decolorizing powder in the same application!

16 BEFORE A FULL BLEACHING, CAN I USE DEKAP JUST TO CLEAN AND GIVE SHINE TO MY HAIR?

Some professionals use DekapColor to clean the previous coloring processes, removing the oxidative dyes that are attached to hair. In this way, they can reduce time of bleach application after using Dekap, reducing damages during hair full bleaching process.

17 CAN I HAVE MY HAIR COLORED ON THE SAME DAY I HAVE APPLIED DEKAP?

Yes, you can have your hair colored, we even recommend you do it on the same day. This is because it is likely that your hair will be slightly faded because of the hydrogen peroxide (present in the coloring) applied during your lightening or streaking processes. This way, it may have a color depth different from the original color. You want to look beautiful quickly, don’t you? So, put some color in your hair, girl!

18 FROM WHAT AGE CAN I USE DEKAPCOLOR?

We do not recommend that it be used by children under 16 years of age.

19 CAN PREGNANT WOMEN USE DEKAP?

We also do not recommend the use in pregnant women.

20 CAN I HAVE MY HAIR STRAIGHTENED AFTER APPLICATION?

You must wait at least a week after applying DekapColor to straighten your hair. Besides, we recommend that you hydrate your hair during this time to protect your hair’s health.

21 DOES IT REMOVE COLORING WITH ONLY ONE APPLICATION?

It will depend a lot on the degree of saturation of your hair (amount of artificial dyes present in hair). The more saturated it is, the more times you will need to apply DekapColor to remove all color.

22 CAN DEKAPCOLOR DAMAGE MY HAIR?

DekapColor does not affect your hair or even your scalp. But it is very important that you take extra care, keeping your hair always well hydrated every time you submit them to some chemical process. If you are coloring on the same day as applying Dekap, it is very important to have your hair hydrated to make your hair even more beautiful and full of life!

IMPORTANT! For straightening processes, take extra care because your hair fibers become very sensitive during the process.

23 WHAT CAUTION DO I HAVE TO TAKE AFTER USING DEKAPCOLOR?

Always hydrate your hair to help preventing damages and to let coloring result even better. So, you make sure your hair is soft, full of shine and you’ll look even more beautiful!

24 WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING DEKAP IN LIGHTER COLORING APPLICATIONS?

In blond hair, Dekap can remove saturated coloring, allowing to change nuances from an ash blonde to a golden blonde, for example. It removes saturation of blonde hair, leaving it shining and intensity of the new color even stronger.

IMPORTANT! Remember that DekapColor does not make your hair return to its natural color. Once your hair is colored, its natural pigmentation has already been altered.

25 CAN I CHANGE NUANCES WITHOUT CHANGING THE COLOR TONE?

You can use DekapColor to clean your hair form saturated color, to change the nuance without changing the color shade. Or even to keep the same nuance, so that the new coloring becomes more intense and still shiny – always depending on the color in which your hair is.

This process can be done in hair with any coloring shade. But if your hair has brown or blond shades, the result is usually even better.

26 I HAVE BEEN COLORING MY HAIR IN BLACK FOR A LONG TIME. EVEN SO, CAN I REMOVE ALL COLORING WITH DEKAP?

The result will depend on the degree of saturation of your hair (amount of artificial dyes deposited on hair) and it may be necessary to apply it more times for the total removal of the coloring. The more saturated, the greater the number of applications required.

The process of dye removal must be gradual, especially in dark hair with black coloring and reddish shades. Remember that you can apply DekapColor a maximum of 2 times on the same day and give a gap of at least 7 days for the next application.

27 AND IF I HAVE MY HAIR COLORED DARK RED?

As the red color is very intense and already has a high concentration of dyes, the result with Dekap will be gradual, that is, the more you apply the product, the better the result. Always remember to follow the application guidelines!

28 DOES DEKAPCOLOR REMOVE HENÊ FROM HAIR?

Dekap does not offer results on hair processed with products based on progressive coloring with metal bases, straighteners with dyes in the Henê and Henna in their formulation. This is because it removes pigments only from oxidative coloring.

29 IS IT TRUE DEKAPCOLOR DOES NOT REMOVE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT AND OTHER CHEMICAL PROCESSES?

It is true!! DekapColor purpose is to remove only the artificial dyes from coloring processes (oxidative) you have applied to your hair. Therefore, if there are more chemical processes in hair (Brazilian blowout, bleaching etc.), Dekap’s action will not interfere in any of them. Something wonderful, isn’t it?

IMPORTANT! To keep your hair always healthy, have weekly moisturizing procedures.

30 CAN I APPLY DEKAP ON HAIR ENDS ONLY FOR HAIR STREAKING?

Yes, you can! As long as your hair has artificial oxidative coloring, for if it is a virgin hair, the product will have no effect.

It is a wonderful tip for you to save hair ends!
