          Tried this product in mine and my sisters hair to remove the color in our hair. It was recommended to us by a hair stylist and I would never use it again. Waste of money and leaves a lingering order in your hair, even after shampooing 4 times like it says in the directions.

            I have medium length medium thickness naturally dark brown hair. I wanted to use this product to remove a ashy tone I had been applying when coloring my hair professionally. I was hoping to switch to a warmer tone on my next coloring. I have had this color removal process done at the salon and always it's done with heat after putting the product on. I was surprised it wouldn't say to heat with a blow dryer or something. Many people refer to the smell. The smell is nothing as strong as the one at the salon so it didn't bother me. After shampooing it went away. I followed the directions except for the last shampoo rinse I ran out of hot water. My results were mixed. It took color out closest to my scalp where heat comes from the top of your head. It also removed some from the ends possibly where i had old highlights that had been colored. My hair did feel soft after but I feel more color would have came out if I added heat to the process. I feel like heat is a needed step but would need to watch carefully.

                I dyed my hair greenish blue over the summer, and I couldn't get the color out of my hair. So I decided to use color oops. It was awful. It was SO messy (I would recommend having a friend do it for you) & SOOO stinky. It smelled up my apartment for about a week until I had to scrub down my bathroom with bleach. It smells like rotten vinegar eggs. AND the smell stayed in my hair for like a month. AND ON TOP OF THAT, IT DIDNT EVEN WORK! It did not take any green out of my hair. So I waited a couple weeks, and gave it a second chance. SAME EXACT RESULTS. NOTHING. Just stinky & messy. I would never recommend this to anyone.

                • Box color gone horribly wrong!!

                Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

                OMG!!! Thank goodness for Color Oops!!!
                I had dyed my hair way to DARK!!! Turned out dark brown almost black!!! I could of cried!!
                I tried a vitamin c, honey, baking soda, dish soap concoction!! Didn't work!!! Wasted my time.
                Color Oops kept coming up in my searches on how to lighten dark colored hair. I read the reviews. I went for it!!! I have short hair so I bought 1 box. 1 box was more than enough.
                Was very easy to use. Pretty drippy. Went on great. Covered with the plastic bag it comes with and crossed my fingers!!!
                Waited 20 minutes!! Rinsed until I ran out of hot water!! It says to rinse for 15-20 minutes. Then shampoo, rinse and shampoo again. Rinse some more. Then condition and rinse again. This was very time consuming. But I didn't care if it was going to work!!! Several reviews said it was the worst smelling ever. It wasn't!! I've smelled way worse!! I'm a mother of two!! I was waiting for this awful odor that everyone kept writing about. Never got to bad!! Don't get me wrong, there is a smell. Almost like a perm/egg odor. But I survived it.
                I towel dried my hair. Put my hair up in the towel. I was scared to look. So after about 5 minutes I looked! Holy BUCKETS!!! My horrible dark brown/black color was GONE!!!!! WOW!!!
                I don't even have to re-color my hair!!! Color turned out great!!! WAY lighter. No roots are even showing!?!
                I hope this helps you out. So if your reading this go NOW and get a box!!! If you jacked your hair up, like I did, please give this a try!!!! I'm SO happy that I did!!!!

                Used this when I accidently dyed my hair black instead of dark brown. It works great, leaves your hair a normal color and not too damaged, but it smells so terrible. It also stains everything the terrible sulfur smell (my sink still smells). I do recommend coloring after it because it does leave patches of uneven color.

                I colored my hair and it came out way too dark. This worked but I am glad I watched a YouTube video first. Follow the directions on time!! And buy some leave in conditioner because your hair needs it after.

                All the reviews are about the smell but it's NOT THAT BAD. It smells like a Christmas tree. Like a pine tree but very strong. I dyed my hair black and it looked terrible! Then I used this thinking it wouldn't work and it was all talk no show. And it worked!!!! My hair back to normal!!! I'm so glad. This product works!!!

                  When I dyed my hair in the past, I wasn't happy with the color so I used the extra strength product of Color Ooops to remove the color. My hair was so damaged afterwords! It was to the point that I had to shave my head, and the color barely even came out. (If anything it just turned to an even uglier shade of the color I had in my hair to begin with.)
