Before I begin to review this product I want to give a little information on my hair type, integrity, history, and how many successful attempts I’ve had using color oops. My hair type is slightly damaged - thick (strands) and curly but thin (not a lot of hair) mid back length. I’ve colored my hair box black for 3 years now. Prior to the black I had red hair achieved using L’Oréal Hi Color in magenta and red. I’ve used this product twice now. First time I used it to remove the red from L’Oréal Hi color which i had been using consistently for touch ups and roots for about 1 year. When I tried Color Oops the first time i was shocked and surprised to see myself as a blonde when i exited the shower! I had no idea how high it actually lifted. I was expecting to see my something close to my virgin hair underneath (yes i know L’Oréal hi color lifts hair a couple levels and then deposits the red.) So fast forward after being blonde and 13 other colors i decided to go back to the dreaded drugstore black box dye (Revlon Colorsilk in Black). I decided to grow my hair out about 6 months ago and promised to never color again. I still had about 5 inches of black hair left that hadn’t grown all the way out when i decided i didn’t want to cut it. Instead i remembered my positive experience with Color Oops and decided to give it another go! I am pleased to say that My hair is a born again virgin. I haven’t seen my virgin hair color in its entirety in almost 13 years! My husband is very happy with my virgin hair as he’s always wanted to see it! For this notorious cheap black box dye that’s sat in my hair so long to come out in only 20 minutes after being in my poor hair cortex for over a year; id day this product is pretty damn good for its price and availability at the drug store! It’s rescued me twice now and i couldn’t pass up writing a review on this. I know there are others out there who have fallen victim to Revlons Colorsilk black box dye (because it’s so cheap and accessible) who want their prior hair color back. Black is nice but it gets old and it’s so stubborn! I’m so happy to have my beautiful light brown hair back!!! The integrity of my hair is still the same as before. It didn’t kill my hair or burn my scalp or anything and I’m super sensitive! FYI the smell can get overwhelming and intense to the point where you’re choking like i was! Open up your bathroom windows and oscillate your fan to rid your home of the fumes. Discard your gloves and plastic bag used over your head into your trash outside as the smell will penetrate your walls if left in a bathroom especially if it’s small and closed up. Save yourself the smell and headache. Also i used a leave in conditioner after as my hair did get a tad dry from rinsing and shampooing for 20 minutes. If you’re looking for a serious hair color remover that’s packs a punch without the luxury price tag move no further. This stuff is a mane saver and I am so happy!
