    Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

    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.

        Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

        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.

        First of all, it does not smell as bad as people make it out to be!!! The smell does linger a bit but it is not bad at all. However, it works great. I used this on my super red hair and it took me to a pretty strawberry blonde. The extra conditioning kind did not make my hair dry at all! The only part that sucks is having to rinse and shampoo for so long but I made sure to be extra gentle and apply conditioner while I rinsed as well and it helped a ton. I'm so happy with my results and i'm glad it left no damage whatsoever as my hair was already in pretty bad condition.

                  Read and follow directions carefully. Two steps are especially important: rinsing and using protein conditioner as directed. If you don't you may experience unwanted darkening of your color within 24-48 hours after use. If you follow directions properly, you will hopefully have great results like me and no damage, even if you recolor same day

                      I used it to remove Demi permanent color that came out too dark, despite strand test. It removed color effectively and without damage. I recolored same day without damage. Great results.
                      Besides reading and following all of the directions, 2 steps are especially important in the directions: rinse as directed and use protein conditioner as directed if you recolor. I did it and had no trouble. Some users who skipped these steps reported darkening within 24-48 hours. Follow directions and you will have good experience hopefully
