      What's the point of getting rid of your current hair color if it doesn't actually remove it

      worked perfect!!!

      Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

      Just bought this today! I have been dying my hair black for about 6 months. I finally decided I didn't want it anymore but didn't want to pay absorbent amounts of money at a salon to get rid of it. I saw this at Rite Aid and figured I would give it a try and its PERFECT! Im so excited to get rid of the black. It stripped it all out to a brassy yellow orange. I only left mine in 30 min, i feel like i should have left it in another 5-10 but didnt' want to leave it in too long. Excited to dye my hair a new color!!!

                Wanted color oops but they were out- that is a true hair color stripper that doesn't use bleach and doesn't damage hair. This product is a BLEACH make no mistake. And not even enough of it to get half of my collarbone length hair. Absolute rip off and garbage product, L'Oréal should discontinue this product and apologize to everyone who made the mistake of paying money for this garbage.

                              • Q:

                                I have been wanting to remove the dark brown I have applied to my hair for at least five years. The build-up on my hair is black on the ends.
                                My roots are currently growing out.
                                Would I still need to apply to my roots?
                                Ironically my natural colour is very close to the red tone everyone says/shows they have after using the product

                                  A:

                                  The Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover should only be applied to the dyed hair. Natural hair lightens up much easier than dyed hair so any new growth exposed to this lightener would become very light compared to the rest of the hair, leaving the hair's color very uneven.
                                  To avoid color build up on the ends of the hair n the future, only apply any hair dye to the previously dyed hair for no more than 5 minutes at the end of your timing. If the previously dyed ends are already dark enough and don't need the color refreshed, just color the roots and leave the ends alone.

                                  Hi! After you have rinsed the haircolor remover and gently shampoo and dry your hair you can re-color. You can follow the timing on your haircolor instructions. Excellence is 30 minutes (40 if covering gray) Preference is 25 minutes (30 if covering gray).

                                  Hello Grannie! It will remove the L'Oreal Preference haircolor as well as your natural hair color and undertones. We would not recommend that you use this product on gray hair, even if the gray hair is covered by a hair-coloring process. We hope this information was helpful.
