Rated 3 out of 5 by HG99 Disappointed with product after reading the positive reviews
My hair color is naturally dark brown black. Unfortunately,I have to do root maintence every 3 weeks, so I dye the top portion of my hair black (box hair dye in natural black). I have been looking into changing my hair color to a dark chocolate, so After reading the many many reviews on this product, I decided to give it a try. (Since most said that they HAD dyed black hair and it worked for them). Here is how my experience went:
-Bought one box and 2oz. 10v hair developer (not listed on the box, learned this from my research). My hair is 2 inches pass my shoulders, so I had to buy another box (after realizing the first try didnt do much for me)
-I left it on for 15 mins. Checked it and left it on for another 5 mins (as directed on the box)
-The box says "Pleasant Fragrance" This product smelled like I was giving myself a home perm by using old fish tank water.
-The first try...It lighten my roots and the back portion of my hair. I followed the instructions and rinsed with the 10v developer. Washed my hair 5 times and conditioned with a hair mask (this is HIGHLY recommended as it left my hair feeling like I spent the entire week at the beach and didnt shower). Applied the product for the second time onto my hair (focusing on the dark portions and not on my roots). I did see some progress, but it did not lighten my dyed black hair by 2 shades. At most, it still looked black.
This product worked on the back portion of my hair, since I rarely dye that section. It had partially grown out, therefore it worked.
It didnt exactly work for me as it did on others. I would suggest saving your money and getting your hair professionally done. (I plan to do this too after learnning my lesson).
My hair was in great shape before this, it left it dry as if I used heat products daily. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by HailAtlantis Do NOT use this on semi-permanent dye.
I had some of the Argan Oil One n Only semi-permanent, magenta, in my hair. I foolishly bought this thinking that it would strip the magenta out of my hair. What it did was turn my hair a dark purple. Then I tried to lift (bleach) the purple out, but that resulted in permanently bright pink hair. Lol. The pink isn't coming out. This Ion color remover turned the semi-permanent PERMANENT. Don't use this on semi-permanent color!
However, I've used this a bunch of times on permanent dyes and it works great. It does what you need it to do -- strips color out so you can re-color, without all the damage that other hair color strippers/bleaches cause. Get two packages if you have long hair, and don't forget to buy the 10% developer that you need (not included).

Rated 2 out of 5 by MzMW Did not meet expectations
Purchased to remove very dark brown hair dye. Did not change the color of hair. Doesn't smell as awful as I expected (doesn't smell "good"). Did not damage hair. Just did not remove dye.

This stuff is amazing. This is by far the best color corrector that I have ever used. Using box dyes was a big mistake, and I wanted to correct my color the right way. This product took of many applications of brown, professional red and even orange. My hair was back to a beautiful, natural dark blonde. It felt silky and healthy after rinsing. I had previously used Color Oops a few years ago and most of my color bled back through after a few hours. It was a waste of time and money and I was afraid that I was going to same experience with this. NOPE! I LOVE IT. I would recommend it to anyone who wants their hair back!
