    Comments about L'Oréal Colorista Color Eraser:

    I have used multiple different colors of the colorista hair color. I have tried pink, purple, blue, and indigo. They all faded out pretty much on their on and nicely until I used the indigo. However, there is a warning one back of the box that states that the fading process would be green. That is in-fact what happened. I used this remover product to strip the green, while it did do it, and did it well, it did leave my hair very fried an crunchy for the next few days. However, I immediately started deep conditioning, and hot oil treatments and within the week I am already noticing my hair to be less dry.

    Over all, I would use this again if I had to, however I think I would just avoid the colors that fade to something you wont like to avoid using this again.

            Comments about L'Oréal Colorista Color Eraser:

            I bought the Colorista red and loved it, so I bought the denim blue next. It turned my level 8 strawberry blonde into 'Oscar The Grouch' grass green. I wanted it gone ASAP! I assumed the coordinating color remover would work well to remove it. After all, it was from the same line of products, so it must have been specifically designed to remove this direct dye, right? Wrong.
            It's bleach. Cheap, weak, bad for your hair and only halfway worked. All of the damage, and almost no results.
            Crush some vitamin c in cheap clarifying shampoo. Scrub it in and wait 20 minutes.
            It will take the edge off the color and cost almost nothing per use.
            Do not buy this product.

                I used four of the removers and my hair still looks terrible. I will never buy this product again or the semi permanent hair color. I really
                Hope someone who was looking to buy this comes across this and sees that it does not work.

                  The product is basically a bleach with a small-volume developer. The developer isn't strong enough to lift the color away but is strong enough to damage your hair. If you are wanting to remove semi-permanent hair color, try one of the home remedies that are always circulating the interwebs.

                  This only faded the color (which had been in my hair for a month) from purple to mint green and now my stylist can't do much but cut it out because this product destroyed the ends of my hair.

                  Don't be fooled--it is bleach, not color stripper

                      Comments about L'Oréal Colorista Color Eraser:

                      I had applied the semipermanent blue (for blonde hair) one month ago and it was not washing out as promised (surprise surprise). As suggested on the box, I purchased the "color eraser"--only, once opening it and mixing the products, it was very clear that this 'eraser' was lightener. I was expecting it to be a color stripper, like the product "color oops" which removes hair dye without bleach. I was very wrong.

                      Long story short--the bleach will ultimately take the color out (color which is supposed to only last 12 washes by the way), BUT expect your hair to be lightened and more than likely damaged, possibly needing a toner as well depending on how brassy it comes out.

                        Can you use this product if you used the same L'Oréal semi permanent hair die but for darker hair?

                          A:

                          The Colorista Color Eraser is only for use on natural blonde or bleached blonde hair. If used on hair darker than a medium blonde, there may be a slight change to the appearance of the natural hair color.
