      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.

            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!

                    Works well! I have very long thick hair that is naturally blonde that I dyed black for four years. This stripped the black out to bright orange with a few dark streaks. Don't freak out when you see this, it's normal. I then bleached my hair two times. I finished with a light ash brown hair color to neutralise the warm colors and ended with a golden blonde. I may dye again a little darker but it looks good. My hair isn't damaged! A little bit dryer at the ends, thats all.

                        I have asian hair that was lightened to a very light blonde. After my roots started to grow out, I decided to color my hair Lavender/Purple. I let the color fade for almost a month and ended up with grayish hair with parts of my hair still really purple. It smells like bleach, but the semi-permanent purple dye almost immediately faded back to my blonde color. It took out all the hair color with no traces left in 5-10 minutes! I used Color oops a few months before to fade out and take out another semi-permanent color, but it just left my hair with a greenish tint and smelled horrible!
