        I held the product in my hair for 20 minutes then washed and shampooed another 15-20 and three times with the 5 minutes period, and it didn't even get near getting rid of the color. Waste of money.

        Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

        I had been dying my hair a deep red for about a year, decided to start dying it brown almost black for 2 years. I noticed my hair was gunked up, faded and gross so i decided to try this because its bleach and ammonia free.. it works AMAZING my natrual color is a light brown and its just that! i had to use it twice because i have very thick hair but overall this works amazing! although it smells very very bad and the smell lingers for DAYS.

            I have bleached ends with a lime green semi permanent color, i brought this product because it said it removes even the darkest colors, directions say only let it set for 20 mins... 25 mins later my hair was still bright green. It didnt lift not even one shade

                I permanently dyed my hair a red/brown color earlier this year. I became tired of it and wanted to go back to my natural blonde. The initial use of the product isn't terrible, just a bit smelly. It's the washing out that is very time consuming. You wash/rinse 15-20 the first time, then 3 more times rinsing it for about 5 minutes. If you don't, not all of the color will be out. For example after my first wash/rinse my hair was orange. Once it was all said and done I am left with more of a strawberry blonde color. A color more my style that I can live with. Overall I am pleased.

                Just note that your hair will still smell like the chemicals days later.

                All I have to say is this product saved me hundreds of dollars if I would of went to a salon. Im 31 yrs old and have been coloring my hair for 18 yrs both on my own and professionally. I wanted to get rid of the red and go blonde which is very hard to do at a salon it's very time consuming and takes months with a few bleaching processes and a lot of money! Bleaching was not an option for me cause I've been using olaplex for months and my hair was finally at a healthy state. I decided to give this product a try and it did wonders! It says to leave it on for 20 mins but I would check on it every 10 mins and left it on for a total of 40 mins washed my hair as directed over and over dried my hair and it was a golden yellow color all the colors ive ever colored my hair was out completely except for my highlighted areas I had bleached (for me was a good thing) I colored my hair about an hour later after deep conditioning it. I used medium ash blonde and now my hair looks beautiful!! I've never had my hair this light in my life not even by a professional!

                  I've been coloring my hair red for years, but decided to try something different before I redid the color this time around. I read the online reviews, and decided to try this to see if it would help. I followed the instructions exactly, and this didn't do a thing to fade the red in my hair. Plus I couldn't get any sort of refund because I had used the entire bottle of product per instructions.

                      I bought this to remove semi-permanent blue hair dye and it didn't work at all. I noticed after using it one tiny part of the instructions that said the product will not work on "direct dyes" which are dyes you don't have to mix before applying them. These are products such as Manic Panic dyes. Long story short, I wasted my time and money and damaged my hair for no reason. I don't understand why something like this wouldn't be printed on the outside of the box so that people who plan to use it on direct dyed hair do not buy this and waste their money. It was very irritating.

                          It did not work to remove color. It didn't even fade the color - and the color was on less than a day and was only semi permanent.
