 Are you bored of dyeing your hair black and wonder if Color Oops will remove your dye? 


Good news! Color Oops removes artificial hair color.

 But in the case of black-colored hair, it has an extra advantage: using it up to three times in one day will remove the black dye from your hair. 


So, what’s the difference between Color Oops and bleaching? There are several differences:

  • During bleaching, you use ammonia and a developer. Therefore, you remove the artificial and natural color from the hair.  Color Oops, in turn, contains concentrated sulfates and sulfur that break down the ARTIFICIAL color bonds inside the hair. So, when you rinse it out, the dye disappears
  • If your hair is dyed black and you want to bleach it, you’ll need several bleaching sessions to get all the color out. And that can take months. On the other hand,  if you use Color Oops, you’ll remove the black dye in just one session. 
  • Bleaching can literally burn your hair if you aren’t experienced in coloring.  In contrast, the worst thing that could happen to your hair if you use Color Oops, even without experience, is that your hair will dry out.  So, bleaching black-colored hair can be very dangerous, especially if you’re inexperienced.
  •  If you bleach your black hair, you’ll end up with a reddish/orange color. However, Color Oops doesn’t leave that residue because it doesn’t fade the color.  Instead, it removes it.

What results can you expect when using Color Oops on your black hair?

This will depend on your natural color. For example, if your hair was brown 4 before coloring it black, it’ll be brown 4 after using Color Oops. So, the resulting color will be just one shade lighter than your natural color.

Alternatively, if your hair was dark blonde 6 before you dyed it black, it could be light brown 5 after using Color Oops.

Remember that if you applied a dark color several times to your hair, you’ll need to apply Color Oops several times to achieve the result you’re looking for.

  •  Prepare the  Color Oops blend. The kit includes two numbered containers (1 and 2). Transfer the entire contents of container 1 to container 2 and blend to integrate. Put on your gloves.
  •  Apply Color Oops to your hair.  Always use it on dry, unwashed hair for 72 hours. Apply it from roots to ends. Be sure to massage each strand to distribute the product. When you finish applying the remover to every inch of your hair, cover it with a shower cap.
  •  Leave Color Oops on for 20 to 40 minutes
  •  After the exposure time, rinse your hair with hot water.  Use hot water and let it run all over your hair for 30 minutes.


Look at your hair when it’s completely dry.

If it has traces of black dye, you can repeat the process up to three times in the same day.


How to care for your hair after using Color Oops to remove the black dye

The recovery stage begins after removing the black dye from your hair because Color Oops contains sulfates that dry out the hair.

What should you do?

  • Use a deep conditioner to moisturize the hair. You can also use coconut oil masks.
  • Avoid using hair products with alcohol.
  • Avoid heat tools.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner to maintain moisture throughout the day.
  • Don’t wash your hair every day.


Can you color your hair after using Color Oops?

 In my opinion, you should wait at least 24 hours to apply hair dye,. 


Why? After using the color remover, your hair is completely dehydrated and porous. Therefore, it’ll “desperately” absorb the dye you apply. Likely, two dye kits won’t be enough to color your hair.

However, if you wait 24 hours to color your hair after using Color Oops, the color molecules in your hair will stabilize, the hair cuticles will close, and your mane can rest from the Color Oops application.



Color Oops is an excellent option for removing black dye without damaging your hair. However, you must follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to restore the moisture lost during the process.
