I have used boxed hair dyes for years, but this time, I thought it would be more dark brown and it was really more a dark red. Not what I wanted. I knew it would lighten, but not sure I wanted all the holdiay photos to be with that hair color. Found Oops and thought what the heck. It smells so awful, like when you had home perms done in the 70's. I followed directions, rinsed for 15-20 minutes, and was quite surprised that all the color came out. Even from the last couple times, it came out evenly too. Now, it has been 2 weeks and my hair still stinks some, but it is getting better. Also just so you know, I had the bad color on for about a week before I used the product.

I have been box dying my hair for about a year. I used multiple brands all within the medium/dark brown range and sometimes a reddish brown. My hair seemed to become super dark from dying over and over again. I used this product to get out as much dye as possible. It did take a lot out but my hair was left an orangey/light brown. I only did it once because the process was long. I was in the shower for what seemed to be forever. And the product left my head itchy and uncomfortable. I dyed over it two days later to a light brown. My hair color did seem to darken within those two days, so I think if I would have dyed it immediately after the color oops I could have gone lighter? Not sure. In the end it turned out alright, I used a medium ash blonde to counteract the red left and i'm happy with the results.

Okay ladies and gents here's the real real about this product. So if you're anything like me, you dye your hair a lot. I've been every color in the natural spectrum from bleach blonde to blue black with some unnatural colors in between. So i get a real bad case of color buildup. So you need to understand this. Color WILL NOT lighten pre colored hair. So you will notice that your hair will not go the color of the box. Or your roots will be much lighter than your ends. These are symptoms of color buildup. You've literally just kept dumping color over color and now its all muddy with color. This product is what you want to grab to sort this out. Now understand this WILL NOT BRING YOUR NATURAL COLOR BACK. If you had brown hair and you dyed it black it will lift the black out of your hair but your natural color is gone. You will probably end up with red/orange hair. Basically this cleans the slate to go ahead and recolor your hair. So it will get rid of most of the color buildup so you can lay another color. Follow the directions and based on your hair type you might need to buy more than one box. This will dry out your hair so take steps before and after the process to maintain the integrity of your hair. What I do, because I have bleached the crap out of my hair is that I will spray light leave in conditioner then apply virgin unrefined coconut oil all over my hair focusing on the parts that need more love then wait a good hour or two. The heat of your head will keep the oil in liquid form and condition your hair. After apply the color oops as instructed on the box over the oil. I prefer mixing the ingredients in a bowl and applying it with a brush but whatever you feel more comfortable with. Also if you have a lot of hair I would recommend focusing on the back of you head first. Letting it process and wash it out and proceed with the front of you head. Because time makes a difference and because the hair on the top of your head sees more sunlight so it may be lighter and more faded than the bottom you can keep an eye on the bottom half without worrying that the top of your head is getting too light. Other than the smell which is like really watered down rotten eggs this works.

I used this product years and years ago and wasn't that impressed with it, but I also had multiple years' worth of black box dye on my hair, lol. Bought and used it again recently, so buckle up:I won't ramble on about my hair history. The debriefing: Green hair for a few months, dyed it black, two months later I want to go back to a color close to my natural. Used L'oreal Hair Color Remover, whiiiiich worked in some areas, kind of (meaning yeah it lightened it a bit and removed the black but it was still really dark) and didn't do anything to the rest of my hair except damage it. Picked up two boxes of Color Oops, used the first one last night and I am a happy lil sprout. The results I got: hair is significantly more stripped (in a good way, haha) than it was before, the black bits that were unaffected by the L'oreal are starting to go an orange-ish light brown. This stuff does smell, but HOOOOONESTLYYYYYY I've smelled far worse. Yeah, it has a little sulfur smell, but really I don't think it's nearly as awful as some people say it is. Maybe my sniffer is whack, but yeah. I'd rather smell this than many other things. Still, though, use it in a ventilated room or something. And your hair is gonna smell like it when you rinse it out, but it'll fade. I used it last night and today I can only really smell it when I bury my nose in my hair. The whole rinsing-for-937-years thing is kind of a pain in the arse, but it's what you gotta do. I only made it I think 15 minutes last night, but I think what I'll do next time is just rinse most of it out, then lie down in the tub and swish my hair around for 20 minutes. Damage-wise, this didn't damage my hair. It felt like straw afterward, but I did a deep conditioner overnight and it feels pretty normal again. I guess I'd much rather have dry hair that I can put moisture back into than have bleach-damaged hair that can't really be saved. ALSO. I really, really, REALLY REALLY appreciate that Color Oops gives you enough product to actually cover your whole dang head. That's probably my biggest gripe with the L'oreal Color Remover - THEY GIVE YOU SO LITTLE. My hair is shoulder-length, thin-average thickness, and the left side of my head is shaved and I STILL needed two bottles of that. With Color Oops, I was good with one bottle and had some leftover.Anywayyyy, I'm going to do another go-round with this tonight, and I'll update my review tomorrow with my final results after two boxes. ------UPDATE 08/15/15Did my second go-round with this, and it removed more color :) Light enough to put my next color over it. No damage (it did get pretty damaged from the L'oreal color remover) but this didn't add any further damage, just dried my hair out a bit but nothing some deep conditioning can't fix.

My hair is naturally dark brown. I dyed it black, and got tired of having to redye it every few months, so I decided to strip the color. I left it in for exactly 20 minutes and then washed it out. My hair was extremely dry and damaged. It is also red now!! My hair has never been red!

I love this product and would recommend it. While it will leave your hair feeling straw like, just put a hair mask in and put a cap over your hair and leave in for a few hours or overnight. Don't dye you hair right away. I never have and I just don't think the hair could take it. Each use is said to take each layer of dye, out of your hair. I jump around in colors and I use this a few times before going back blonde. It is was lease harsh then bleaches that will make you hair fall out if used too much.

This worked wonderfully for me. Took out the black/blue dye in my hair and left it dark brown (my natural color). You really have to follow the directions, it's a ton of rinsing out the hair (I rinsed mine out for about 30-35 minutes) and shampooing. The products smells horrible, like rotten eggs so I took off a lippy for that, and it also left my hair quite dry (no surprise there), but nothing a deep conditioning mask didn't fix. Overall, I would recommend this product. It didn't significantly damage my hair, and it fixed my way too dark hair.

Im not sure if using color oops helped or. Did more damage to my hair, if anyone had these results please let me know.I used a dark hair color and when it came out to dark I bought color opps. The color came out leaving my hair a blond, redish color. It also made my hair feel almost to soft. I bought another color and recolored my hair. A few days later i noticed my hair wouldn't hold a curl at all and I could feel little pricky hair all over my scalp, then I noticed little hairs sticking up every where as if i had new hair growth. Is thisnew hair growth or did my hair break off? If this has happened to anyone else please let me know.Thank you

I will share my "Oops, I used Color Oops!" story with you, dear reader, so that you can avoid wasting your day like I did while also trashing your hair. Now, my hair is not sensitive. It can take hardcore triple-processing abuse. I can scalp bleach it without pain or blisters. And usually, when I'm switching from my natural blonde to jet black and back again, I just bleach and tone it. Somehow, I decided that using Color Oops would be less damaging, so I went for it one terrible day.It's watery, so half of it probably went down the drain anyways. I couldn't quite tell if it were or were not in my hair, and it smelled like I'd fallen into a latrine filled with egg salad the fumes of which stung my eyes as well as my scalp. I went outside with this drippy, smelly stuff wrapped up in plastic and tried to ignore the situation. I probably made it for about an hour. I followed the instructions very carefully, scrubbing vigorously and shampooing and standing in the hot water for about 45 minutes until the water heater was done with me, and I dried it and found…… my jet black hair with ash blonde roots was now canary yellow roots with streaks of random Bozo-the-Clown orange mixed with areas of pure black. It literally looked like I was kidding or pretending to be a "hair disaster" or something. Wisely, I tried a second round which only made the situation that much more sordid, to the point that I wound up looking kind of like a hyperactive Spice Girl on a bad day. After that, I pretty much grabbed the first bottle of dye I could fine, jet black, dyed it, and pretending like the whole thing never happened. The smell lingered terribly in the house, and one of my children vomited from it. This was my worst experience ever with any beauty product of any sort. And I've used a lot of beauty products. Not only would I not recommend this but I'd think the Better Business Bureau ought to get a piece of this action; it's that bad.If it worked for you, please let me know if you did something different, or else perhaps you are some sort of holy saint, in which case, you have my great reverence.
