      Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

      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:)

      After over highlighting my hair, I used this product to remove some blonde, it made it much worse. Ended up a super light blonde with brassiness. ugh! Went to a professional to correct, costing me $110. Lesson learned! Do not use this!

        I see so many people saying this doesn't work I've died my hair since I was 12 and I've continuously kept it black now I put this product on my head left it for 60 minutes and when I washed it put no red no orange blonde. But it might of aswell worked for me as I have fine hair short and straight

            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!!!

              Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Haircolor Remover:

              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.

              Ruins your hair! Bleaches it out. Had to spend hundreds of dollars having someone at a salon fix what this terrible product did. NEVER USE THIS!!!!!!!!

                  I used this to remove a dye that was too dark. The instructions say to leave on for 20 - 50 minutes. That is ludicrus!! Using color OOPS before I knew not to leave it on for a long period of time. I went with 20 minutes, the least recommended on the instructions. My hair ended up 12 different colors! The top was white, gold, orange while the bottom was way too many shades between white and brown. I've used Color OOPS before and will use only that if ever needed again!! I DO NOT recommend this product!!

                          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!
