    Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

    All through my years of dying my hair myself I have made some mistakes. Whenever I chose a color that ends up looking bad on me I use this to fix it. It is way better than trying to bleach out the bad color. I have even used this product a few weeks after the dye job and it still worked - Granted not as good as right away, but still note worthy. I usually use it when I have tried a red, or a golden color that brought all the red tones out and looked brassy. Yes, It might not smell like roses, but it's hair dye - well more like anti-dye? But it has all the same qualities of dye, so if you don't like that, then don't dye your hair in the first place.

    Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

    I used this to get some black out of the ends of my hair. Overall it did a pretty good job, but it didn't get the black out entirely. I have naturally medium brown hair and I applied this all over. When it dried, the black turned into dark brown and my natural hair seemed a bit lighter. However, it is pretty close to what my real color is and I don't mind that it's not entirely gone.

            Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

            I have naturally medium brown hair and attempted to go a bit redder using a box dye. It turned out bright punk red which is what I didn't want to happen. So I began researching ways to get this horrid mistake out of my hair and came across Color Oops. The lady at the counter did warn me that my hair color would not return to my natural hair, but at this point I was desperate. I went home and immediately put this product to use. When I got out of the shower and dried my hair, it was a sort of honey color that I kind of enjoy. It's not what I wanted but I'm getting used to it.
            The biggest downside to this product though is the smell. Other reviewers have commented on it, but they are right. It has not left my hair, and even though it's only been three days since I've used it, I've shampooed at least 20 times and still smell it when I shower (I've also cleaned my bathroom twice since that day). But other than that, I think this product works best for blondes, or those who's hair color turned out darker than they wanted. Good luck!

                Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

                I was disappointed that it didn't fully remove all the color. The box shows quite exactly what my hair should have been (I was blonde, dyed it dark red, and wanted to get back to blonde), but only ended up getting to an orange-brassy light red. It wasn't a bad color, but it wasn't what my original color was.

                The smell isn't that horrible, like a citrus-sulphur, but the worst part was even after washing my hair 6 times with shampoo and then using a strong conditioner, my hair still smelled STRONGLY of the product. I also cannot imagine what the Extra Strength would have done to my hair because even though this was the Extra Conditioning, my hair was incredibly dry afterward.

                The only perk, for me, was that it did help lighten so when I ultimately ended up bleaching my hair to get it back to blonde, it didn't have to process nearly as long.

                    I am the one who 's coloring her hair almost every 3 weeks since I was 28, because divorce brought me grey hair:) Naturally I am blond. In time I tried a lot of different colors, but always returned to L'Oreal 9GR, the golden reddish blonde. But from time to time I try new colors. My hair is still in a good shape, even if color it so often. I hate grey hair!!! In December I thought that I need a change of look (bad idea) and I colored my hair brownish. It came out way to dark for my white skin. I looked jut awful. 10 years older than I am. I started to read review after review and after 2 days I went to store having in mind to buy L'Oreal... but I went out with 3 Color Oops Conditioning! Yes, I bought 3, my hair is very long and I have a lot:) I used all 3 of them, following the instructions and the result was very satisfying! It didn't turned out to be my reddish blonde, but light blonde. I will wait a few weeks to color it back. My hair looks shiny and healthy!

                    I have short hair, so thought I could get away with just dying my whole head without just doing the roots. WRONG. I dyed my hair a medium brown- but the tips looked almost black! Color Oops removed all of the dye from my hair, restoring it to my natural color! I was worried I would end up with a bunch of greys showing, but oddly enough, there is still a tint of brown on the greys, so thats not even an issue. I love this product, and would highly recommend!
