Works so much better than expected!
This product really works at removing your previous color, and evening out your hair tone so that you can re-dye if you need to.I’ve dyed my hair at home for years, usually with professional dyes. Last week I decided to try a new brand of pro color in red specifically for dark hair, but the results were terrible. To correct this, I tried re-dying with a slightly darker red of a different brand. It worked but after 2 days and 2 shampoos, the red was fading unevenly.Deciding to just give up on red for the moment, I got Color Oops. I bought the Extra Strength since I’d dyed my hair twice, both more than 48 hours previously. The Regular Strength is for hair which has been dyed within the previous 48 hours.I’ve tried the Clairol Color Remover you can get at drug stores, but Color Oops was much better. The mixture is very thin and it bubbles when you put it on your hair, which was kind of disconcerting. It does really dry your hair out, so you’ll need to condition very well after using.To use, leave Color Oops on for 20 minutes, then rinse for 5 minutes. Shampoo, and rinse 5 minutes again. Then you shampoo & rinse two more times. It is time-consuming, but the point of the product is to wash your old color out.It works like a charm. It took both reds out of my hair and left just the lightened/bleached look from the peroxide in the first pro red I used. (Nothing will get rid of bleaching once it’s done to hair, Color Oops just gets rid of the color. You have to re-dye if your hair has been lightened/bleached.) I decided to stop after 3 shampoos and rinses and use conditioner, because my hair was pretty crunchy and dry. It still worked just fine, all the color came out.You can dye your hair the same day you use Color Oops, but I decided to wait 24 hours. When you dye your hair afterwards, the color you get will be darker than you expect. For example, I chose a dark ash blonde, but after using Color Oops it came out as more of a light ash brown.My only complaint is the smell. It’s terrible. I had to air out the house and get the used bottles outside immediately after using it.
I had never used a hair color remover before this. First thing i disliked about the product was the HORRIBLE smell. I washed my hair 10+ times and it still smelled like it. Smells exactly like VOMIT. Besides that, it dried out my hair beyond words and didn’t even remove the color. Better off using BLEACH. I do not recommend this.
Too dark dyed eyebrows
As I age I find my eyebrows fading and have them touched up by my hairdresser, as well as sometimes doing it myself. Unfortunately They often come out too dark and I look as if I have two caterpillars on my face. Oops! Carefully used lightens them.
