i had originally dyed my hair red and i wanted to bleech it, obviously i had to remove the red before i did this so i bought the superdrug rewind, i did the stand test and it turned it into a light brown, i was pleased with the result and the following day i did my whole hair... yup. THE SMELL! HOLY CRAP IT STINKS AND ITS UNBEARABLE, IT FILLED MY WHOLE HOUSE AND IT STAYED FOR DAYS I HAD LEFT ALL WINDOWS AND DOORS OPEN AND i can still smell it! ITS FIRST AND ROTTEN EGGY SMELL THEN AS YOU START TO WASH IT, IT SMELLS LIKE WET DOG, I WASHED IT EVERYDAY FOR MONTHS AND IT DIDNT GO SO I JUST BLEACHED OVER IT AND GAVE UPFlag this review

I decided to try this after reading the other reviews, so thanks for all your advice. My original colour was brunette but with a lot of grey and as I have been dying it for years I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The result was much lighter than my natural colour and a bit orangey but I kept my nerve and after two or three washes it started to go darker. There is still quite a lot of red in it which I want to get rid of so I am gradually touching up the grey roots with semi-permanent light Ash and so far I've been pleased with the results. I'm trying to take the plunge and go grey. The first step is to give up the permanent dark hair colour! My game plan for trying to avoid the badger effect is to lightly touch up the roots with Light Ash to counteract the red but not block out grey altogether until it starts to blend in. I've also decided to grow my hair at the same time which is probably not what you are meant to do! Downside was the smell but that soon goes and my hair was a bit dry after using the remover but the upside was I didn't need my straightners for a few days afterwards.Flag this review
