I have used this product to HELP as part of my progression from dark brown/red dye build up, to platinum blonde.
This product will not lighten your hair in one go if it's already dyed, or any darker than medium brown...none of them will!!!
If your hair is already dyed, use a COLOUR REMOVER first, you can use them over and over again to remove dye build up, and this is the simplest way to strip your hair back before lightening.. and the most gentle.
I used XXL Absolute Platinum AFTER removing years of reds and browns I had dyed over each other, It gave it the most powerful lift I have ever experienced from a platinum dye, and my hair is now extremely blonde, I love it!
I would recommend if you want BRIGHT BLONDE/PLATINUM hair to use a toner after XXL, such as boots colour restorer - Iced platinum, or directions white toner. These are conditioning colour rinses, usually blue or violet in colour, which REMOVE BRASSY ORANGE AND YELLOW tones from lightened hair. They are also really conditioning.
I use one once every few washes of my hair to maintain brightness.
Schwarzkopf XXL Absolute Platinum is the strongest lightener I have ever used which did not compromise the condition of my hair. Other bleaches have had nearly the same lifting power, but my hair was critical at the ends. I would highly recommend this product as PART of the lightening process....there is no magical product that will take you from darker browns to ice blonde, you have to accept it will be a process and may take a few products, but it's do-able!!!
