        20 min application, rinse for 10-15 min with shampoo, shampoo again & rinse, then done. Easy. Boom, hair back to normal. Didn't even have to redye because it pulled to a gorgeous color! And little to no damage. Lost like 8 strands.. nothing. Lol

            This product smells bad, very time consuming, and barely worked. I went from a pretty red to orange.

                This thing took the dye out of my hair, which is great. BUT it did not take me back to my natural color. I followed all the instructions and now my hair is noticeably several shades lighter than my original color. The stuff did not touch my roots, meaning I am able to compare it to my natural color. Looks awful. Also the smell won't go away.

                I have colored my hair for the past 25 years and almost forgot what my hair color was! I am greying and wanted to go lighter from black and it took years of color from my hair and restored the natural color. I have long hair and I am extremely pleased with the results. I wouldn't dye over this if I didn't have greys.

                  So my Salon messed up by giving me dark auburn hair when I wanted a tint of red to my caramel color. Horrible! So I bought this product with others just in case it didn't work. OMG! AMAZING! Not only did it remove that god awful dark auburn red but made my color orange red which I like. I only placed it in my hair 20 minutes and was afraid my color would go blonde if I left it on longer. Only thing cons about this product is that your hair will smell bad afterwards like you burned your hair and there was a lot of hair loss. I would compare it to bleaching your hair without the awful hair damage even though it says no bleach or ammonia. I would say in conclusion it will bring your color to a lighter color you dyed it to, not necessarily your original color. So wouldn't recommend it for people trying to go "back" to blonde from a dark color.

                      My natural hair color is black. For the past decade, I have always dyed my hair brown. I started getting tired of brown hair, so I dyed my hair black. Big mistake. Wanted to go back to brown hair. According to the direction, since I had dyed my lighter than my natural color previously, Color Oops would result in making my hair orangy-brassy color instead of my natural black hair. I followed all directions exactly from mixing the two liquids, working quickly in non-cold environment (I had help with this from family), leaving it on for 20min with head-mask on, shampoo- washed for 40 minutes to be safe after reading other reviews about how important this is, then shampooed 3 times, left conditioner on for 20min since I was going to recolor to the brown color I want. Blow dried my hair, turns out my hair only became slightly lighter. (Jet black to black/super dark brown). I was disappointed because I followed the direction carefully and even shampooed/rinsed much longer than recommended time to make sure all particles are washed off.
