Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works amazing It worked to take out most of the blue and green (i used AF Poseidon and Phantom Green). I used a 30v developer and mixed in some water to dilute the developer down. waited about 10 minutes and it pulled most of the color out, leaving some minty color areas. My hair was a bit dry. For people with sensitive smell, it has a very strong chemical smell, so i recommend being in a well vented area. I tried two of the 'home remedies'to get the color out before this product. The vitamin C method didnt work at all, while the baking soda method worked just a tiny bit but it dried my hair out so much i had to get some parts chopped off (i feel like it dried out my hair much more than the loreal effasol remover)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable and Easy I have used this product for years and would recommend it to almost anyone. I use a conditioner after recoloring and my hair is almost back to normal within a couple of weeks. Don’t use on extremely damaged hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job for the most part I purchased this product looking to remove all the different brown and red color that I dyed my hair. It worked it did leave a little red but that's fine. My hair was dry after shampooing. I followed up with an aphogee treatment. And used a light brown cellphane (not pictured) Satisfied with my results

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty awesome I’ve used this a few times and it has always worked the best to take color out and so I can move to another color. It does leave my hair dry but it’s usually fixed after a deep conditioning mask. To the comments who have said it makes their hair yellow, it says on the packaging it won’t return your hair to its normal color. It’s only a step before changing your hair color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the most effective color removers i’ve used ive had semi permanent red hair for a few months, got this today as something to try since i knew it can be tricky to remove, the red tone was gone within 5 minutes. hair feels a little gross, but nothing a moisturizer won’t fix. really happy with it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE!! RUINED MY HAIR! This product is absolutely terrible. I chose to use this as an alternative instead of bleaching my hair because I didn't think my hair could handle the bleaching process so since it is supposed to be more gentle than bleach I decided to go this route. I will never use this product again it was uneven and damaged my hair. Once I washed my hair the ends of my hair were literally stringy and stretchy and melting off in the shower. Even after conditioning it and leaving the conditioner on for 10 minutes and using multiple hair masks my hair still felt rough and dry and was falling out. It was breaking off so much I had to cut it after 2 years of trying to grow my hair and finally getting it healthy again and even after the haircut my hair is filled with split ends and breaks every time I touch it. If you are hair has been color treated at all I would not use this product or get ready for a haircut. I was told the creme lightener Buy on is more gentle and conditioning on the hair even though it is bleach I rather do that then use this product next time. I would never recommend this product. I even asked advice from multiple license cosmetologist and they all said they hated this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is amazing I’ve used this to remove purple pink and dark auburn. The people who are having problems, you need to understand the products you are using. If you use this with developer, it will lighten your hair because developer does that. That’s why you’re getting splotchy messes. Try it with water first. It might do what you want with no lift. Developer lifts color not just bleach. And every time you color your hair you are lightening your base. Hope this makes sense! Effasol is amazing and works perfectly!

Hello, I have a question: my hair is a dark red tone with that being said, should I use this product with water or a developer?

Asked by: Jessica VQ
Effasol removes dye,or tint from your hair, if your hair is natural color then you would use bleach. If your hair is dark tint and you want to go lighter then yes I would use 20 volume h2o2 with effasol,  put it on the hair shaft first

No don’t use anything other then the 20vol or the water it says to use!! It works great with the 20 if you have dark color needed to get out. Make sure to cover it with a bag or something to help it work it’s best!!! I am a hairstylist!!

The Package cautions Do Not Use Over Semi-Permanent Haircolor-hair breakage may result. Can Effasol be used to remove Redken Shades EQ (Demi-Permanent) haircolor safely? Hair has gotten darker over time due to depositing with no lightening effects?

Asked by: Angele BW
Hi Angele BW: I used Shades for years and years and I too noticed that my hair was getting darker and darker. I used Effasol to remove Shades (not sure if Shades is a demi-gloss or semi-gloss) and my hair turned orange (brassy) and yellow in streaks. I used Effasol a second time a day later and I still had streaks of orange and yellow, although lighter. I decided to try it one more time. My hair is pretty strong, although I've had accidents in the past which resulted in cutting my hair. This last time it was white as snow, with a little orange and yellow, but my hair felt super duper dry. I made the mistake of purchasing Elvive shampoo and conditioner (by L'Oreal) and it RUINED my hair. My hair was all the way down to my booty cheeks when I started the color removing process. For some unknown reason my hair does NOT RESPOND TO PROTEIN OR HOT OIL TREATMENTS AND ELVIVE TURNED MY HAIR INTO STRAW AND IT BROKE ONE SIDE OF MY HAIR UP TO MY JAWLINE, APPROXIMATELY 1/3 OF MY HAIR! My hair was dry, but not broken until I purchased the OTC "7 SIGNS OF DAMAGE" THAT THIS SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER SUPPOSEDLY IS TO HELP. It did the opposite and when I returned the set to the store, the manager said I needed to keep using it for it to work?!!!! BALD IS THE GOAL? So, I was able to lighten my hair with the Effasol, but KNOW WHAT YOUR HAIR RESPONDS TO AND WHAT IT DOESN'T FOR AFTER CARE. I attempted to get highlights with 20 volume bleach (in a salon) two years prior to using Effasol and MY HAIR BROKE OFF because of the repeated use of Shades, plus the stylist was so sure my hair could take three days of highlighting which was incorrect. I chock it up to too much deposit of color with no lifting. I've gone to permanent color now (lift and deposit) and decided against the deposit only colors. Shades is wonderful as a toner (used on pre lightened hair) or blending colors for a gentle wash out, but repeated use can cause problems with removing if deciding to change colors. I'd say be careful with Effasol and only use it once if you aren't going super light because depending how much color deposit you have with Shades, you could be in the same predicament as me. I have a few inches of super short hair on one side of my head, but no one seems to notice. They didn't even notice when I cut all of my hair off to attempt to SORT OF even out the broken chunks of hair. It was down to my booty cheeks and now it's up to my shoulders with 1/3 of hair three inches shorter than the rest of it on the left side, the side I sleep on plus, I have shorter pieces all around the back of my head on one side also from sleeping on it one day after using Elvive shampoo and conditioner. I COULD NOT GET A COMB THROUGH MY HAIR. THERE WAS NO MOISTURE OR SLIP IN MY HAIR POST USING THE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER AND THE PRODUCT DID IRREPARABLE DAMAGE MY HAIR. I should have stuck to Joico intense conditioner and shampoo. That works GREAT with my hair. The intense conditioner is like vaseline. Leave it in your hair for 5 minutes or longer and your hair will be super happy. Joico shampoo for damaged hair is wonderful as well. Good luck to you on this Shades color removing journey.

How do I get a pro account in order to buy this?

Asked by: Micheal11
You need to be a licensed cosmetologist. You need to show your cosmetology license, and your ID. If you are a cosmetology student you might be able to buy this as well.

I dyed my hair yet black and I absolutely hate it. Can this product remove some of the black color leaving me with a light brown color? If I mix with water?

Asked by: Vanessa Belen
Yes, it will maybe be kind of reddish brown, then you can recolor it with a dark blonde Demi permanent color. This product is great, it does not damage. I’ve used it more than once if necessary, and put plastic cap on and used hairdryer to add heat. I have also mixed it with 10 volume to give it more power, sometimes.
