“what even happened?!”

Written on: 20/05/2013 by emlyberry (1 review written)

I have naturally dark/medium blonde hair with both ashy and reddish tints to it and I wanted an easy way to lighten my hair all over. Schwarzkopf was my first choice as I thought it was a good branded and had great results from previous shades however I have not been more disappointed. My hair has actually darkened from this dye and gone yellow on the roots and a very bright orange on the ends. I even used a slightly longer time to do it. Please don't buy this and seek professional advice first… Read Full Review

“Sunburst YELLOW”

Written on: 12/03/2013 by SunburstYellow (1 review written)

My hair was dirty blonde before this. Now, it looks like I have YELLOW hair. I mixed everything correctly and used the anti-brass conditioner. I swear I think the conditioner ADDED MORE YELLOW TO MY HAIR. I am embarrassed and have to go buy a DIFFERENT BRAND of hair dye tonight to fix this mess. I will, regardless, be buying a blue/purple toner from Sally's tomorrow to try to counter all the YELLOW this put into my hair. Totally bummed. Needed a pick me up. Got a huge downer. :( I'm… Read Full Review

I have been using this product on my hair and roots for a year now I am a natural warm light brown as you may know warm colours are particularly hard to get a platnum colour, but I have never had any problems with this product it brings my hair to a lovely light blonde, yeah it kills your hair abit only if you keep going over the same bits again, (one time application for 45-50 mins even tho it says 30-45 on the box another 5mins won't hurt) a one time application on natural undyed hair wont… Read Full Review

Hi, I have a question.... I have really dark brown hair and now I'm a blonde, not as blonde as I would like so I have been thinking of using this product. My question is about my roots... do I have to use the product more than once to achieve the colour??

“Great Product, lovely colour result. Happy!”

Written on: 08/10/2012 by Bettyboop1978 (1 review written)

I previously had dyed dark red/brown hair, and back in May had a total bleach all over with highlights, which was fairly successful and took my hair to a mid blonde shade. Since then I had a couple more sets of highlights done but my roots were becoming a pain and I wanted to go a little lighter all over. Tried other box dyes but they always left my roots orangey and brassy looking. Was hesitant about this product due to mixed reviews, but I thought Id give it a go as its cheap and I liked the… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2012

I love this colour i initially used the max blonde to do my hair with used about 3 boxes to get me blonde.. not a problem and then i used platinum and it went brighter blonde but was still kinda brassy.. again not a problem the reason people on here have orange or brassy hair is because they dont tone it.. you can get something called colour effects conditioning colour 8:1 cool blonde to use after to get rid of the brassy-ness or use colour endure violet shampoo.... YOU WILL NEED TO USE TONER!!… Read Full Review

Do you use the toner before using dye and then after or just before or just after?

And my hair was mousey brown to start with, i grew to like the bleach blonde but put a golden shade on it, i would recommend using it twice over if you want a proper platinum colour i dont think it will work on all first time but my hair was so vibrant and light!!!

“It works!”

Written on: 25/08/2012

I have naturally mousey hair which i had previously highlighted with bleach and used a box of perfect ten blonde on. I wanted a brighter blonde so i got XXL Absolute Platinum. I needed to use two boxes on my shoulder-length, fine/medium hair. This dye is really effective, I look like a totally different person! It's very bright, very very pale shiny blonde. There is some yellowness and a few peachy-coloured end pieces left, so i definitely recommend buying a blue/purple toner, I got this… Read Full Review

“Awesome Pre-Lightener”

Written on: 15/08/2012

I've seen bad reviews for the product, not sure why though. So I guess partially it could be hair condition, but considering mine... I doubt it. I've died my hair constantly for the last 11 years, and it's not in the best of conditions. My guess is that the dye hasn't been mixed properly based on what people are saying. I've found that not only does the platinum blonde work well it also damages my has a hair a lot loss than conventional bleaches and leaves it the perfect shade for colouring… Read Full Review

“Use common sense, it works!!!!”

Written on: 10/08/2012

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… Read Full Review

“Omg dont dream of using this dye!”

Written on: 08/06/2012

I just want to warn anyone thinking of buying this dye, dont do it! I saw the picture on the box and thought to myself sure i would love white blonde hair like that! I had dark blonde hair to begin with and according to the box my hair should've went extremely blonde after using it. Yeh right! If you would like to have orange hair with streaks of yellow then this is the dye for you! I didnt have colour in my hair before putting it in so i have no idea why my hair turned out the way it did, i… Read Full Review

The only reason your hair went that colour was because you didn't tone it. Everyone knows that if you bleach/die your hair blonde that it will go brassy and yellow unless you either use a toner that you can buy or use a toning shampoo. I would recommend using Schwarzkopf silver shampoo because I have been using it and it instantly gets rid of the golden and brassy tones and turns them more ash blonde. To achieve the colour on the box you have to tone it, you can't just expect your hair to go white first time.

I have been dying my hair with L'Oreal Recital Preference 01 for a couple of years now. I have never used toner and you are correct it does look brassy so I just dye it every 3 weeks. Should I use one of these toning shampoos for a couple of weeks and then try the XXL Platinum dye and then keep using the toning shampoo or should I try the toning shampoo once then the dye? Completely unsure what to do and dont want ginger blonde hair. Only dye my hair blonde as it hides my very thin hair volume. thanks

There must have been some different colours in your hair or it hasn't been left on long enough. My natural hair color is Medium Brown and this blonde is the only one I've ever used that lifts my roots and gives all over lovely color of blonde

“Never again!!”

Written on: 24/05/2012

I bought this product after having used many other colours in the Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL range. I was extremely happy with all the previous colours that I put in my hair but this one is NOTHING like them. I had my hair bleached at the hairdressers a few weeks ago and put a semi permanent red colour over it. This was then fading (and almost washed out)so I decided to use the XXL Absolute Platinum to go proper blonde. Upon dying it, the top of my hair turned bright yellow/brassy and the rest… Read Full Review

It's because you had red hair, reds are well known for being really hard to dye light colours because they go brassy, even the semi-permanent ones, you should have bought a home colour stripper and put it on for about 10 minutes to get the red out. As for the burning scalp you should have done a skin test 24 hours before hand, which you are supposed to do with all hair colours, even the ones you have tried before, so you can't have read the box properly because it is definitely on there.

“Really works!”

Written on: 20/05/2012 by ElizaGra (1 review written)

I have naturally very dark brown hair, and have been thinking about going very dark blonde or light brown for months. I originally went to a salon where they refused to do an all over head colour because they claimed that it would go very brassy or very yellow, but that finely woven blonde highlights would give the same effect, as it would sort of "mix" with my natural colour. The lady gave me half-head highlights, which made my hair look an awful grey colour overall. I went home £106 poorer… Read Full Review

“DO NOT BUY!”

Written on: 17/04/2012

I am a male with brown hair. I wanted slight highlights. On the packaging there is a man with brown/dark brown hair with really light almost blond highlights. I bought this product and tried the first batch, nothing worked. It says on the packaging "for lighter results repeat process". I repeated eight times. The instructions do not mention the maximum amount of times you should repeat the process. My scalp started to ache with red rashes appearing. If you want a product that cost £5-£6… Read Full Review

“Utter rubbish product, really disappointed!”

Written on: 07/04/2012

I'm really disappointed with this dye, I usually love the live xxl colours but this one failed completely. It dyed bits of my hair orange or yellow and some bits it didnt even touch even though I had massaged the colour in properly and left it on longer than what the instructions said to. I've been dying my hair for years and have never had a problem until now. Luckily I have a funky colour to stick on top of the lighter bits to make them look deliberately unusual instead of a fail-dye joke. I… Read Full Review
