          Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

          I read the reviews on color oops and decided to give it a try. I got to the store and saw this product, loreal hair color remover was on the shelf also. I read how horrible color oops smells and decided to pick this one up instead. Let me give you a brief history of what happened to my hair.

          I am a natural medium brown color and have colored my hair many times. I decided I wanted to go blonde so I cut my hair short and spent a lot of money and time to get the blonde color I desired. After a few months of being blonde, I began to grow tired of re coloring my roots every couple weeks. I would do it myself and I admit I am not the best with getting every single spot so I was often left with dark spots underneath my hair. Because of this I thought it would be best to just go back brown. Immediately after I colored my hair I hated it! It was too dark in some spots, almost black and some of my hair actually looked green (i am guessing from the brown not coloring over the blonde correctly). After 3 days, I decided I couldnt live with it. I knew bleaching was not an option so I went after this product instead.

          It didn't smell bad at all, and was actally really easy to apply (though a little runny). After a few minutes I could already see my hair getting lighter. I left it on for 30 minutes and couldn't believe It actually went back to *almost* looking like before. Of course, it is more strawberry colored than I wanted but the product does exactly what it said it would do! Those of you reviewing that it left your hair multiple colors I am guessing you didnt read the box. It WILL come out different colors but the purpose is for you to be able to color it a different color. It says so clear as day on the box and in the instructions.

          The only con I have is that yes, it left my hair pretty dry. I have decided to leave it alone for a while and let my roots grow a little before I attempt anything and I think I will go to a professional next time!

          Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

          I am a licensed hairdresser. Last night I was touching up my boyfriends bleached hair before a very important job interview that he would have today. After the bleach I used a toner that I have used before and usually get amazing results. For whatever reason though this time it turned his hair BLUE! It was around midnight so there were no professional beauty shops open for me to buy something to fix his hair. As much as it killed me to do it my only option was to purchas this product and hope for the best. It was very user friendly and it absolutely worked! And fast! In about 5 minutes it was all back to blonde. I am totally amazed. I hope that I never have to use this product again but if a color oops happens again it's nice to know that something's out there at a very reasonable price to help out. I'm only giving it 4 stars because this is a BLEACH PRODUCT. If you don't know what your doing it can and will trash your hair. Do a strand test first and have another color handy to put on after the remover is washed out because it is a bleach product and your hair is most likely going to be a sunset.

                  I have used many removers over the past 6 years and this one is by far the best. Others smell like rotten eggs and takes 2-3 boxes and hair gradually darkens again. That smell takes a week to rid! This product stayed on only 20 minutes, took me to a lovely strawberry blonde and had no odor, no return to a darker shade!I did not recolor, will only do roots in a few weeks to match this nice color. I highly recommend this, it really works and works well. Of course a deep conditioner is needed anytime you put a harsh product on! Thanks Loreal for great products:)

                        I always use Loreal Preference or Excellance light auburn but store didn't have and I had to cover some gray at the temples so got light auburn nutrisse. My hair turned dark burgundy! So dark I could hardly recognize myself in the mirror so I ran to Ulta and purchased this product. It was difficult to follow the directions and just get on the middle and end but not roots, was terrible to work through my fine thin hair--some came out because it was so harsh--after 10 minutes nothing happened so I was on the computer for another ten--oh no! My hair is the brightest lightest peach color and my scalp is burning!!!! I'm afraid to put any color on top of this, I'll call Loreal's 800 number tomorrow to see what to do--I'm embarrassed to walk out of my house!!!

                          I've been coloring my hair for 25 years. For whatever reason my latest application gave me hair so dark it was almost black (I was going for a medium brown). I washed it repeatedly, used Head & Shoulders, etc - the color wouldn't lighten at all. A friend told me about this product and I decided to try it last night. I left it on for 25 mins and it pulled all the color out. I won't lie - I looked like a crazy lioness with my orange stripes. I immediately recolored with a medium brown and it came out great. I would advise having someone help you with it since you have to be really careful about covering all the orange and it's hard to see the back of your own head.
