I was expecting mild damage to my hair as peroxide tends to do so. I did not expect THIS much damage though. Many reviews claim they didn't experience any damage, I don't believe these people or perhaps they were oblivious to the minor changes in their hair. I unfortunately did experience hair damage from this product. This dried my incredibly healthy hair out and also snapped hair at the roots. I used this product a total of four times as directed and stopped when I realised it was just too damaging. You don't notice the damage when the product is in the hair, you notice the damage a couple of weeks after you use the product. Straight after blowdrying your hair with this product, it looks glossy, smells divine and you don't notice damage. The negative effects take place weeks/days afterwards. It hardly lightened my hair as well. Perhaps HALF a shade at the most - and only in the areas I SATURATED with product - which are now incredibly damaged (luckily I only used this product to (attempt) highlights - which you can't even notice in the sunlight). The damage caused for the effect was not worth it. You can hardly see a difference. I was not expecting a miracle, just 2-3 of shades lighter like the box says. Not that I am gullible enough to believe their marketing but I hoped that it would lighten it a LITTLE more. Or at least not FRY my hair like it did for a measly 1/2 shade lighter. Not even. I think if you want to lighten your hair, you are better off gently bleach bathing your hair with coconut oil. Don't waste your time with this gradual lightener unless you're lazy and don't mind drying your hair out & creating split ends. Do not use this product if you have fine, wavy Caucasian hair like myself. This is probably better if you have thicker hair that can take a beating. Mine was clearly far too fragile for this. Then again I have quite long hair so if you don't really care for keeping your length, then go for it!
