Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

It works good but just remember to cover every single bit of your hair. Also during the 30 minute rinse it will start to feel disgusting but it definitely does what it's supposed to do! But DO NOT use a hair dryer, it says it in the directions but there's a chance it'll bring back up the color because of the heat.

Surprised. It worked.

By Summer

from Bowling Green, KY

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

I was leery to try it at first because I didn't want to risk screwing up, but it shockingly worked. I am a natural medium honey blonde and I transitioned to a dark reddish with hints of auburn Brown undertones exactly a year ago. I decided I wanted to go back blonde as I loved my red, but I was ready for a change. I attempted to bleach my hair three weeks ago and it was disastrous...orange and so patchy. I panicked and put a dark red back over it to hide it because I had a corporate meeting the next day. It has been three weeks and I decided to try color oops. It stripped the red completey and left only a mild brassy tone on the top, which I expected since I had bleached it prior. It took my hair back to a copper, blondeish with mild brassy tones in which I covered up with a strawberry blonde dye later that day. All of that being said, if you use this and have bleached your hair be prepared for it to appear brassy instead of blonde.

The biggest con of this product is definitely the smell. Yes, it is just as bad as everyone says it is being very similar to the smell of manure. It stays in your hair for days and isn't easy to remove. It took some heavy conditioning to remove.

Overall, I really recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to bleach or go to a salon.

Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

Personally im sickened by the bad reviews ok ok people LISTEN!! IF YOU HAVE SEMI PERMANENT COLOR IN YOUR HAIR This Will NOT Work For You! This product is for permanent colored hair... so that means if you are trying to get rid of blue? purple? pink? and any other vibrant shade this will not work for you.. google vitamin C hair color removal .. ;) that being said.. back to my review.. i just got out of the shower after doing this. Not my first time either ;) Ok Ok lets start from the top.. so in decemeber i bleached my hair to dye it purple.. then at the end of march the purple was so pink it was time for change.. so i tried a magenta red shade.. didnt like it.. so tried brown.. too boring.. so went a 4v (violet red) it was ok but i was really missing my purple.. so my purple dye will be here friday its wends so i figured to day was the perfect day to use the color oops to pull the red out that i had just put into my hair... it is now a blonde/orangish shade which is PERFECT for me to go purple again ;) be aware giving your hair a few days to gain natural oils in it after is ALWAYS a good thing ;) it does smell pretty narly lol my husband didnt even want to sleep in the bedroom since i just did this before bed. I dye my hair alot so perhaps im just used to all the weird smells.. it smells not good but its surely not the worse ive ever smelled. As for damaging you hair? it doesnt. i used the EXTRA STRENGTH of this product . Does What Its Supposed to do.. At Least if your trying to get rid of PERMANENT color that you have put in your hair. Hope this helps someone out there :)

      Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

      It is smelly but not as bad as I expected after reading other comments. A lot of hair fell out while i was applying the product so I was in a panic to wash it out, I probably could have done with a few more minutes to process. Rinsing for forty minutes is tedious as heck, but in the end I was very pleased with the result. I am heavily gray but have been dying my hair dark auburn for decades. Final look was a lighter medium brown and my gray blended in nicely. My hair felt soft afterwards. I panicked with the hair loss but if I am honest, i lose a lot of hair every time I colour it. I recommend the product but probably won't use it again, at least not anytime soon.... Hopefully won't have an oops to fix! :)

        Bad news

        By Maddy

        from Michigan

        Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

        I was using color oops to remove some red hair dye from my naturally light brown hair. It didn't work at all. I followed the instructions to a tee and a microscopic amount of color came out. Not to mention it has a terrible smell, I even had a smell in my hair after every shower I took after using color oops. Instead of this do the vitamin c treatment, which involves a cheap shampoo and crushed up vitamin c. Mix these together put it on your hair and it gets a lot of the color out. My hair is not red anymore but an auburn brown color

        Comments about Color Oops Hair Color Remover:

        I used this to remove permanent light brown hair color that I stupidly put over blonde. Color Oops removed every trace of brown dye - but keep in mind that the rinsing is the most important part. I shampooed and rinsed my hair for half an hour before soaking it with a deep conditioner. Your hair will be dry so baby it afterwards. Also - remember that drug store hair dye will lighten your natural hair before it deposits color so when you use Color Oops you will be left with brassy tones or even orange hair if your hair wasn't already bleached out. In my case, my blonde is perfect again but my roots are brassy. I'm going to lift my roots to blonde after I'm finished repairing my hair with Olaplex and proton conditioners.
