Rated 2 out of 5 by from What in the..?! I just purchased this along with a Demi due to help cover up my red hair. I knew demi deposits and it can come out darker than expected, so I picked up a shade three shades lighter than what I wanted. The girl who helped me from sallys (she’s was really helpful!) recommenced this. So I bought it. When I got home, I read the instructions, mixed my dye first and then the additive. It kinda shocked me because it turned the dye black... like really black. I read the reviews on here and it said that it was normal. Okay, cool. So I dye my hair, let it processed for 15 minutes and rinsed. My hair is black with cherry red roots. What.the.heck?!?!?! I’m so, so very upset. And, we’re hosting thanksgiving tomorrow. I look ridiculous ;(. Hoping Walgreens is opened tomorrow so I can pick up a dye to fix and match the roots now since the nearest sallys is 45 minutes away. I really would like someone from sallys to contact me. That item should be pulled from the shelves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took the red out I had dyed my hair a red purple and wanted to go brown again but when i did the red still was peeking through. I mixed one packet in with my conditioner and let it sit in for about 15 minutes and washed it out. When my hair dried I noticed a lot of the red was gone. Only thing is it does dry your hair out so after you are done toning the red down I would suggest a deep conditioning treatment!!! Also suggest using 1-3 packets of this stuff over the span of a week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard To ADD My first time buying this product. It was very thick and had a hard time adding it in my applicator bottle! It was a paste texture not a liquid, which would be easy to pour. Maybe it's an old product. If so, it should be pulled from the self! Over all, it seem to work well. May try an other product just to make it easy to add.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Achieved Dark Blonde with NO Orange or Hot Roots I have natural medium-brown hair, about level 6. My dream colour is a dark/medium blonde that's a gorgeous wheat/beige/ash tone, with NO orange or red. Sadly, my hair pulls a TON of bright orange, both at the salon and at home, and I have never been able to achieve my dream colour. Anyway, it was time to do my roots. (The rest of my hair is currently dyed a medium blonde.) I bought a sachet of Unred and mixed it with 9A from Wella Color Charm, and 25 vol developer. (I mixed 20 and 30 to get 25, both Ion Sensitive Scalp, because wanted 2.5 levels of lift, not two, or three.) The Unred turned the bottle of hair dye a truly terrifying dark charcoal grey. Anyway, I slapped the mixture on my dark roots and left for 25 minutes. Then I worked the mixture down my hair and left it for another 5 mins. Amazing result! My Level 6 roots (with lots of orange lurking under the brown, remember) were a level 7 dark blonde with NO ORANGE OR RED!!! This is the first time it's ever happened to me. I cannot believe that I don't have hot roots. I do think the overall colour was a shade darker than otherwise, which is why I gave four stars not five - there should be a warning that it can make your dye a little darker. I think without the Unred, it probably would have been a Level 8 blonde...but I'd have had hot roots. Perhaps next time I'll try it with a 30 Vol - or perhaps just not put in the whole sachet. Or use a 10A instead of 9A. In a nutshell: Unred controlled the hot roots and orange tones when lifting natural Level 6 hair to about level 7.5.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I wanted The lady at the store recommended this product to me to help remove red tones from my hair when trying to dye my hair lighter. My hair looks exactly the same after using this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basically An Ash Intensifier If your goal is medium blonde or lighter, this isn't the product for you. It's basically an ash intensifier, and because it is a pigment meant to cancel out red, it's fairly dark. I used it as part of a toner to refresh my lightened hair. My natural hair is about a level 4, so bringing it up to a lvl 7/8 always results in an orange color. I mixed approximately half a packet of Unred with 1 oz of a demi 9n/silver toner mix and 1oz of lvl 10 developer on damp hair and let it process for 10-15 mins. I didn't want to add Unred to a permanent dye or use a lvl 20 developer because the directions are fairly vague and I didn't want the Unred to oxidize too far and leave me with green/brown hair. It came out a well, but I'm giving it 4 stars because my hair is more beige than ash, and still looks a little gold in some lights. This could probably be corrected by letting it process further next time, although I'm still hesitant to use this with a lvl 20 developer...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more red I have a natural red tint to my hair, so when I add the additive, it takes the red out. I love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turned my hair black I was trying to get the red out and dye my hair a light brown, the lady at sallys told me to use this and that it will help get the red out, yes it did help get the red out but now my hair is jet black. I will never use this stuff again.

Can I add this to toner (Wella T18) instead of dye?

Asked by: Maddiegg
I have no experience with Wella, but I'm guessing it can be used this with any hair color.

How to use this?

Asked by: Rebeccacan i
If I remember correctly, you mix it into your hair color solution right before you put it on your hair and then continue the hair coloring process as you normally would.

Are you able to use this alone in your shampoo?

Asked by: Allis1on
I never thought about that. I doubt it. After coloring your hair, you're not supposed to shampoo afterwards. The coloring would wash out. Plus, you're supposed to leave the color in for 45 min. If you put it in shampoo, you'd just be washing it out.

What else can this be mixed with and how is it used between coloring? How many packets can you add to one service.

Asked by: Rackets915
You only use one packet per color treatment. You add it to your color/hair dye. It turns your Dye a dark purple don’t let it scare you it washes right out and takes the brassiness out of your hair color.  I love it.

My hair has red tones will this get the red out? If so, what do I need to mix with it?

Asked by: Poeticlovev
This product works but unfortunately it works best on light yellow and light orange tones, if it's a brighter brassy color itll just sort of turn it a brownish color. This doesn't remove any color it just tones it like a purple shampoo, red tones are a pain to get out and unfortunately you may need another bleaching process to get the tones really light then use the unred (olaplex is a life saver) when I used this I just mixed it in with my bleach.

Can I use this with 5N Demi permanent with 10 volume developer?

Asked by: SusieWoo
I don't see any reason why not... you can use UNRED with just shampoo and no color at all, so it should be fine with ANY color. Wondering why you are using 10 volume developer... but that is a whole other question.
