It's hard to say, sometimes it works wonderfully, sometimes it doesn't do anything. I always say that if the simpler methods have done all they can do, then try this one.

I think I've reached that point. We'll see, I'm going to let it be for a week, perhaps it'll will fade a bit more with normal washing my hair.  If not, fine with me.

I did the combination colour stripper on my daughters hair last week, and it pulled a lot of colour out. We have since done one round of colour remover (tried the Provoke one, really impressed with it) and it is now back to blonde with a bit of pink banding. Second colour remover going on tonight. Will post pics when we have done, she started with several months build up of various dark reds/pinks/purples that didn't fade at all with just regular shampoo.

It really did, she has been shampooing with sulphate shampoos for a couple of weeks and it didn't change the colour  at all, one round of this color stripper and you could see all the different areas of different colours in her hair and it looked faded.

That's so great, I'm glad you tried it out! It's weird, on some colors like the new Directions Plum especially, it doesn't seem to do much, if anything for a lot of people. But in most other cases it works well or sometimes really great and pulls out a ton. Like with my green from Pravana Blue, Pravana Violet and After Midnight Blue, I did 2 of these, one with and one without peroxide and it took out more than all the fading treatments I had done before that combined. Then I did a color remover and bleach bathed it with 10-15 vol and not much more came out at all so I was afraid it was just permanently stained. I did this one again though and it was pretty much all gone. It really, really surprised me how much it took out!

Idk I think the best way to go about fading is shampooing, then trying simple fading treatments until no more is coming out, then trying this one, then a color remover, then this one again minus the peroxide, and if need be after that, the bleach powder + hot water paste technique.

We have done it in that order so far, but the colour remover was so effective that we are going to do a second round on the pink patches, and I think she will be back to blonde more or less. It is a much darker more golden shade, but it is light enough to dye over. The colour remover was a lot less drying than the combination colour stripper, but we are taking it slowly and deep conditioning in between stages.

I want to try this Provoke color remover! lol. Anything to see if I can budge this Atomic Pink, especially if it's less drying than this combo. Ever since I last did a vitamin C treatment I've been afraid to do any other fading treatments besides just using shampoo at the strongest. The Vitamin C dried my hair out so much. I normally use Colorfix but it doesn't seen very effective on semis..then again that was with blue and just one experience with it though on a semi..I'm going to slowly fade my color over the summer, hoping to be able to go that Nirvel ArtX Nutre Color in Grey sometime in the fall or winter

The best thing about Provoke is that it is super cheap! Only Β£2.99 a box, (that is about $5) and two boxes covers all my daughters hair (and she has a lot of hair, similar length and texture to mine) Over here most colour removers are Β£10 -Β£12 so it is a huge difference. I have bought 4 x Provokes (enough for two applications) for the same price as one Decolour, for example.
It was a lot less drying than the other cheap brand of color remover I have used (JoBaz) too, it barely made any difference to the feel of her hair.
I am still contemplating the Nirvel grey, I am just scared of looking like an old lady.

I do see the green in the second set of photos you posted where your hair is damp.  I imagine it's one of those times it's extremely difficult to capture and is mostly only visible IRL and under certain lighting.
