One 'n Only Colorfix
Literally did nothing but stink
First observation: there's definitely an "unpleasant odor", despite what the box preaches.
In addition, after using this on my red-faded-to-pink hair, absolutely nothing resulted but breakage and stinkage. This product is a sham.

After reading a LOT of reviews on this (both good and bad), I decided to bite the bullet and try it out. I am a natural blonde and had been dying my hair dark brown for a little over a year now. I was getting tired of it and keeping up with it is just a pain, so I was opting to try this to see if I could get my natural color back, or at least close to it. I will say this: consistency is key! The first rinse through, it lightened it, but not enough, so I had to do it again. Second time it still wasn't light enough, so I did it a third (the box says do NOT do it more than 3 times in one day) Thankfully on the third rinse-through, after drying it, it looks very light orange, almost strawberry blonde. So it definitely worked for me! If you are expecting it to go back to your natural color, DO NOT go in with that expectation - that is not what this product does, it even says so on the box. The smell is bad but not unbearable, just be ready for your hair to stink for a few days - I am on day 2 and it still smells bad. Other than that, I would recommend this.

Meets expectations, so much product!
I'm trying to lighten my hair from a dark reddish brown to a darker shade of blond without using a ton of bleach on it. I had two toned reddish brown and almost black hair and this lightened it so well! The red is almost completely out, and the dark brown lightened to a cocoa brown shade. I was hoping for slightly better results, but I haven't dyed in 8 months so the color was pretty locked in. The big upside is the amount you get in the bottle. I had enough to completely cover my 30-35ish inch hair 3 times! It also dried the ends of my hair out relatively bad, but I don't think it's beyond repair.

I was looking for something to remove colour from my hair that didn't have bleach and found this product. and i'm so glad i did. this went beyond my expectations. i have years of reds, purples and a bit of black built up and this got rid of all it perfectly, on the first try- though i didnt use the 3rd bottle. i have thick hair that goes just past my shoulders and i only needed one box. i dyed my hair right after using it and i didnt see/feel any damage. i made sure to do a deep conditioning after dying, so that might have helped.
i did notice a bit of burning while dying and a bit after i was done, i think it was too much for my scalp (its never gone through this much at once) so maybe next time i would wait 24-48 hrs before i dyed my hair.
there is a smell, but its bearable. i would compare it to perming solution. i would recommend using it in an open space if you can, with a window open.
