            Read and follow directions carefully. Two steps are especially important: rinsing and using protein conditioner as directed. If you don't you may experience unwanted darkening of your color within 24-48 hours after use. If you follow directions properly, you will hopefully have great results like me and no damage, even if you recolor same day

                I used it to remove Demi permanent color that came out too dark, despite strand test. It removed color effectively and without damage. I recolored same day without damage. Great results.
                Besides reading and following all of the directions, 2 steps are especially important in the directions: rinse as directed and use protein conditioner as directed if you recolor. I did it and had no trouble. Some users who skipped these steps reported darkening within 24-48 hours. Follow directions and you will have good experience hopefully

                      I dyed my hair from my natural lighter hair to a dark brown. I was tired of the color and wanted to return to my natural shade. The product said it would turn it back to my natural shade with perhaps a brassy tint. NO. I dried my hair after following the instructions to a tee and found that it was GINGER. Not a little bit, but as if I had dyed it orange. My roots were practically bleach blonde and the rest of my hair was orange. Not even close to my natural shade, and certainly not a TINT of brassiness.

                          Y'all I can't say enough great things about this product. I have fine, fragile hair and on a split decision I wanted to go black since I could match it with extensions for a poorly done haircut. I dyed it black but since my hair was blonde and overprocessed, it came out a strong navy blue. The day after I dyed it I applied the color oops and before I had the whole head finished it was already pulling the color. I was left with a very light ashy blonde (maybe the blue dye and orange tones cancelled out) and it removed not only the black and blue, but the previous dirty blonde I had put over my platinum months before. The smell honestly was not a problem at all for me and it didn't damage my hair even though I used the extra strength. Definitely saved me time, money, and sanity!

                            This product didn't work very well for me. I had temporary tint of a mint green in my hair for only acouple days or so for an event and after was hoping this would help get rid of the color quicker than normal. The color is still in my hair. It may have faded a bit but I'm not sure if it's from this product or how many times I've washed my hair after using this product (seven times). This product smells like a very stronge perm and I still cannot get the smell out of my hair. It's been atleast a week and it still smells horrid. I would never use this product again
