        This product bleached my hair to reddish orange blonde! I used color oops before & it was more gentile. This one is too harsh. My hair is fried.

          My hair was colored copper red for 18 years. I wanted to go to brown last time, but the color I used was too dark. Using Loreal Color Remover, I was hoping to remove the darkness to re-color. It bleached my hair to platinum in 15 minutes, despite the numerous years of red! My natural color is chestnut! It is bleach, and a harsh one! Not what I heard from advertisement! DO NOT BUY IT!

          Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

          I had been coloring my hair a dark brown for a while and decided to try and go red. Not only did it not work at all, but my roots turned out bright red, while the length stayed the same. Haircolor disaster! My roots were ready to take the color, but the length was so over-saturated with color that it wouldn't take anymore.

          So, I took a chance and tried this color remover. The process was quite scary-- within 15 minutes after application, my hair turned literally neon orange. However, the effect was uniform and indeed lifted the color enough that I could apply a more appropriate color. This product works well to lift color enough to avoid progressively going darker and darker to cover up color mistakes.

          I agree that this product is harsh and would destroy already damaged hair. My hair is healthy and strong, and I could tell that my hair was quite dried out after using this product. I VERY MUCH suggest that after rinsing out the color remover, slather your hair in ultra-moisturizing conditioner (hopefully without any sulfates), then dry, then apply new color. After applying the new color and conditioning again, my hair is super soft and shiny again.

          DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT EVER!!!

                DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!!!! I bought this product only because Sally's Beauty Supply did not have Ion Color Corrector. I have used Ion's Color Corrector several times & it only removed the product (last hair color you applied). Ion's Color Corrector is gentle, easy & extremely effective in only removing the product, leaving you with your natural hair color.
                This product (L'Oreal Haircolor Removal) BLEACHED my hair!!!! I'm beyond mad! I started with my natural hair color (medium brown), I applied a medium brown caramel color (which I didn't like), then applied L'Oreals Haircolor removal for 30 mins) and now MY HAIR IS COPPER, YELLOW & ORANGE SPOTTED!!!! This is a BLEACH PRODUCT! DO NOT USE!!!!
                TRY ION'S COLOR CORRECTOR! IT'S THE BEST PRODUCT FOR REMOVING BOXED COLOR.

                    The product is meant to correct a hair colouring gone wrong. It is supposed to allow you to colour you hair again, to a colour you want. It however, damaged and dried my hair so badly that I'm scarred to dye my hair again, for fear my hair will fall out! I would never recommend this product. I should have read the reviews before buying it!!

                    I was going from very dark brunette to very light blonde! This product lifted is meant to lift color, so that you can put a new color on your hair! It's not for the faint of heart! It's going to be a little rough on your hair, but that's the nature of the product. It did allow me to put the blonde color I desired in my hair, and I loved the color! If you decide to do this too, make sure to get a good deep conditioning treatment!

                      Product is way too harsh. I have used Color Oops and it was perfect for my hair, it was very gentle which is what I was looking for however, I felt like it could of been stronger. I went to the store and purchased this hair color remover and it was WAY TOO HARSH. My hair looks dead and I have so many patches of different shades in it. I then died over it which did not help. I am not happy with this product at all. Color Oops will fix my hair in the future.

                        This Loreal hair color remover is awesome the best ever. I highly reccomend this to anyone and I have tried other spent a lot of money but never get any great results... I was so happy today for the first time. My hair was medium brown with light ends dark spots roots different color browns reds golds mixed all over Crazy. Been trying to wash it out with different attempts and so damaged my hair... But have been scared to do anymore damage I've waited 2 months now to try something else. This dyed my hair back platinum blonde what I was originally like 4 months ago before red and black over ... little or no damage... I'm so impressed. :-) :-) :-) Des

                        I have been coloring my hair black for the greater half of the last decade so I have a great amount of build up on my hair. I used the product on my hair following the directions, and start to let it process and noticed my roots bleaching first so I rinsed my roots and let the ends process for longer.

                        my hair is now super cute as it is ( kind of looks like a calico cat) and I love it but I can't have it for work, I will have to use a second bottle to get the tips a lighter color, but I will definitely be buying the same brand again and again for as long as I shall color.
