Okay so this stuff works really well when you apply it correctly. Make sure you have a friend who can help you. Also the smell of this stuff is so terrible and lasts multiple days after rinsing.

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

I colored my hair to cover grays and roots w/ash brown that was more ash. I hated the black color and had to get it out. I started at my ends and worked up to the roots. Leaning over the sink and rinsing for 20 min is necessary for this to work and it did! I loved the warm brown I ended up with - no roots showing, no grays, no need to recolor! I did use a 3 minute intensive conditioner after the 2nd shampoo and rinse in order to get a comb thru my hair.

Smells Horrific But Works (Just Be Careful!)

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

I messed up my hair with an awkward brown semi-permanent dye over my already bleached/colored hair. To go back to normal, I tried Color Oops (Extra Strength).
Pros: IT WORKS - it stripped out all of the color and then some (which is why I said Be Careful) -
CONS: It works like a charm, but depending on what color you had in your hair, you will need to dye over it (or tone it like I had to). I went from patchy brown to highlighted "blonde" (but brassy). One tone later and it was exactly where I wanted it to be. Also it smells horrifically bad - as in you'll need to keep cleaning your bathroom with bleach to get this god awful sulfur smell out.

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

I absolutely can't believe how well my hair turned out. I would have to say, I was totally scared to buy this product because I was afraid it would damage my already damaged hair. (I am always dying my hair a different color!) my hair was splat red and black. I have had awful experiences with splat in my past and bleach just didn't cut it without absolutely frying my head. However, aside from the smell, which isn't godawful, just a bit smelly, color oops pleasantly surprised me! The aloe and moisturizing products in color oops actually made my straw like hair fuller and softer. And I mean significantly! I usually have oily hair, and this did not make me greasy, or dry me out. It took out almost all of the red on top, and left me with slightly orange tinted ends on the side of my head. I don't mind, it actually looks kinda cool. I have slight dark tints underneath the top layer of my bangs, since I split dye my hair, from the black dye, but you can't see it since my bangs on top are blonde! All in all, since I didn't use the extra strength Color oops, and used the extra conditioning color oops, I may not have gotten super light, however, I am very happy with my hair as of now, and I will conintue to use it if need be. I may do it again to remove the extra orangey tint later on, because I know it will not damage my hair in the slightest. Very happy!

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

Had colored my hair to what it came to be a way darker than desired color. I used this product and actually achieved the mahogany shade that I was looking for so I did not have to recolor my hair. Overall I am satisfied with this product as it does what it is intended for. The only bad thing about this product is that it has a very strong unpleasant scent and left my hair feeling a little dry.

      Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

      I was honestly disappointed in this product. My hair has been box dyed black for years and I was getting tired of black so I used this to hopefully achieve at least a dark brown. The color I achieved was reddish roots but the rest of my hair remained black and did not lift at alllll. I was expecting just a little magic maybe at least something. The process was really time consuming, a waste of money, and a waste of putting chemicals on my healthy hair. Guess it'll be black hair for life.

      Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

      I have medium to dark blonde hair and dyed it a light brown which left my hair ashy with a purple tint. I used the Color Oops which did remove the ash and purple but left my hair very yellow. So it removed all the color from my hair.

      Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

      I colored my hair an auburn brown color and after a week of having it, I really started to dislike it. So! I came across this product and read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. I am soooo happy I did! My hair is naturally a dirty blonde and this gave me my blonde hair back (it's lighter than my natural hair but I still adore it). The only thing I can really say is that the smell of this product is awful and that the instructions were kind of annoying because I had to shampoo my hair a few different times. But honestly, I can deal with that awful smell since I got the results I wanted.

      My hair is naturally light grayish blonde. I have been dying it purple with arctic fox dye and I wanted to do a different color so I wanted to get rid of the purple first. I put this on my hair for 20 min and it took out the purple but left my hair a grey blue color. Debating on whether to use another box or just dye it blue
