    Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

    I've been dying my hair brown, dark brown, red and purple every month for a year. I decided it was time to go lighter so I picked this up. I have never used anything like this so I did a ton of research beforehand. Please make sure you read up on how color removers work so you know what to expect.

    I have hair down to my waist and 2 boxes was just enough. Next time I use this I will use 3 as I used every bit of both bottles. I covered my hair with a plastic bag and left on for 1 hour. Once I rinsed I was left with a bright orange color. The color was exactly what I expected. I then colored over my hair with a light ash brown to cover the orange and love my new lighter color.

    This product will dry out your hair so be gentle with it for awhile after.

    Does what it said!

    Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

    First: READ. Second: RE-READ. The directions say you will end up with orangish colored hair. The directions say you will NOT return to your original hair color. The directions say you will need to recolor your hair after use of this product! With all this in mind, and with my thick, below shoulder length hair, I bought and used two applications/packages. It removed my red mistake and lightened my dark auburn colored hair (x25 years) and left me with bright orange hair. I elected to wait a day to recolor my hair. I'm 90% gray by the way. My test strand of "Reddish Blonde" looks gorgeous even though I seem to have had three shades of orange. I applied color to the root of test strands (lighter two shades) and then after 13 minutes, I applied the color to the rest of the strand. My results are gorgeous.

        I went to the store to buy Color Oops to get the red out of my hair in order to lighten and color it a different color. They didn't have color oops so I just grabbed this stuff. I should have read the ingredients but I didnt. Shame on me. I thought it was weird that it has that blue color like lightener, but I was in a hurry. Well, my regrowth was a dirty blonde color before. I just went to look in the mirror and it is yellow. Product is deceptive. This stuff isn't strong enough to obviously lighten my red hair to the level I need it to be. Hopefully my hair isn't destroyed since Sunday is my birthday and all I wanted was a different look.

            Horrible product. My hair was light brown after having dyed my hair a shade lighter and it being brassy, I just wanted to take out the color and redo. Within 10 minutes of putting on the color remover my hair was bleached and orange. Thanks God I had other color handy to try to restore my hair to a normal color.

            Should be advertised as BLEACH

              I bought this product, opened the package and started reading the directions when I thought to myself that this stuff looks A LOT like bleach; and I'm not trying to bleach my hair I'm just trying to take out some leftover red from a previous dye job. Luckily, I ran here and read some bad reviews before throwing this stuff on my head. Poorly advertised, this product should be sold as bleach not as hair color remover. Disappointed and wish I hadn't opened the box.

              Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

              I went shopping late at night and this was the only product available. I dyed my hair very dark brown twice (once each month) and decided the dark look just wasn't for me. I'm a natural light brown/dark blonde. This product had all of the darkness removed within ten to fifteen minutes. It harshly bleached my roots, so they were much lighter than the rest of my hair, but luckily I was prepared for that possibility and had hair dye handy. This product is very easy to use. It smells bad, but after a deep conditioning I was able to get the smell out. I have thick, coarse hair and it worked very well. No darkness whatsoever was left. It did what it said it would do. Nothing more, nothing less.

                  I tried this today and I read the reviews before I tried it so I knew what I was getting into!! It does take the color out and make your hair a funky multi colored mess!! You do have to use lots of conditioner after using this product!! I didn't so i was struggling to brush out my hair!! I doused my hair with conditioner and rinsed my hair again!! Way easier to brush!! When dry I colored it with light brown hair dye!! It turned out great!! I was a dark burgundy. I will never go dark again!! But if I did I would use this product again!!

                  I love L'oreal haircolor, especially RB6. I had tried a different shade and I didn't like it. I used the Haircolor Remover. WHOA! You should DEFINITELY do a test before you use it on your hair!!!! I didn't and I used it for 30 minutes as per the instructions. Way too long! 20 minutes would probably have been enough. But it was MY mistake.

                    My husband tried the color for men beard color. He tried the lightest color to cover his gray and it turned dark brown. He used the color remover and it went back to a grayish blonde. Much better color! He was so happy!

                    I used this product for the first time because I needed to take out the dark colour in my hair before going back to red. I recommend to CONSISTENTLY look at your hair! Mine lightened (I had lots of different shades of brown and black, and red from many years of colouring) and my hair lightened in less than five minutes. I didn't need it to go platinum blonde but if I left it for the recommended 20-60 minutes, I would have had very brittle, blonde hair. Definitely check on it and make sure you use an oil treatment after so your dry brittle hair rejuvenates!
