Worked great on my dyed brown hair

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

The description is misleading. Color Oops will not take you back to natural color. Your hair color will be blonde to orange when the process is completed. Like the picture of the girl on the box. I wanted to dye my hair dark blonde. I used the extra conditioning version. I got rid of the brown dye and was left with medium blonde hair. My natural hair color is gray. I used the root method to color my hair dark blonde. The processing will leave your once colored hair very porous and it will soak up any new color like a sponge. So I left the new color on my roots for 30 minutes and than colored the rest and left on for 10 minutes. I now have the Dark blonde hair same as the model on the box. Very happy. I subtracted a star due to the smell and lack of conditioning. This product will not work on direct dyes.

      Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

      So after reading all the comments I could find, I decided to give it a try. I've been coloring since my hair went gray at 21 so it's be pretty much dyed for 30 yrs.The basic color I use is a dark or medium blond (what my real hair color was "in the olden days"). Had the daughter help me out,LOTS of rinsing, I probably went over my water allotment for the month (LOL). Anyway, I had stopped coloring about 3 months ago so 1/2 of it was salt & pepper, balance blond. After all said & done, all it did was lighten remaining color by one shade. It didn't seem worth the time, effort & water used-bummed :(

      See my picture, Yes it smells bad but the fact that this product even exist is awesome! My hair was platinum blonde during a moment of anxiety I went and threw on a brown, everyone wanted to kill me because they all liced the blonde. I found this product on line and that same day was back to exactly the same platinum blonde color. I am amazed. I'll have stinky hair for a bit but totally worth it. I had to shampoo/ rinse and repeat about 5 times.

          Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

          My hair is naturally jet black but I had dyed my hair brown previously with garnier nutrisse box dye. When my hair had started to grow, the black roots had grown all the way up to my jaw and there was a striking difference between the chestnut color i had dyed it and my natural hair. I decided then to dye my whole hair a soft black but to my dismay it looked a bit tacky so i decided to remove the hair color altogether. My expectation was that my hair turns back to its natural state with oops, meaning it would be a jet black up to my jawline if not all the way through the entire length of my hair. My hair is orange now. My roots that were once naturally black, theyre a ginger color now. I followed the instructions thoroughly, but even so, what could I have possibly done wrong to make my hair orange? The smell is awful too, and I'm starting to doubt the claim that there is no ammonia or bleach in this color remover, because definately there must be something to make my natural hair a completely different color that what it should be. How many indian women do you know that are natural gingers? Not many if at all...

            I am a natural redhead. I decided to cover up the gray before a job interview. Grabbed the wrong color! My hair was chestnut brown and looked awful!! After trying some other random tips from the internet I found Color Oops, ran to the store praying it would work. Yes it is a lot of rinsing but it took everything out completely. Not excited about not having color in my hair for a week or so but it's much better natural than not!. This is a wonderful product!

            I read the box when I got home after I asked the worker about it and he said it would but when I got home the box states
            "Color Oops will not perform on direct color dyes like bright pinks, blues, greens, lavenders and purples"
            I was able to return the item and get my money back but I wish the workers helped out more when asking them question about store products.

            This product product did remove most of color from my hair however it has a stinky fragrance. The only problem I had was that my hair is very thick and long but I only picked up one box and it barely covered all of my hair. Also don't expect it to remove all of the color, it lighten my hair about two shades.
