Color Oops doesn’t damage your hair because it doesn’t have either bleach or ammonia.
Now, if your hair was weakened or fragile before using Color Oops, we can’t blame the product.
Why do I say this?
Because I’ve read many comments on forums and in groups from women that used Color Oops and complained about the damage it did to their hair.
And of course, if your hair was a mess before using the color remover, it will be the same afterward.
Or maybe they thought that Color Oops was a magic product for repairing damaged hair?
NO, my friends.
Color Oops is a simple color remover.
If your hair is in good condition, it won’t damage your hair.If your hair is damaged because of continuous processing, your hair will be in the same state after using Color Oops. Don’t hope for a miracle.
Are you still unsure if Color Oops could damage your hair?
If that’s the case, you have two options.
- Option 1: Visit a professional salon so a hairdresser can evaluate the state of your hair before removing the color.
- Option 2: Before applying the product on your whole hair, apply it only on a little strand. That way, you can see how your hair response.
I imagine that if you plan to use Color Oops to remove the dye, visiting a salon isn’t what you want to do, which leaves us with option 2.
Doing a test on one piece of hair is simple.
All you have to do is mix a little bit of the two products that come in the Color Oops kit and apply the mixture to just one small section of hair.
Then you let the product do its thing for 24 hours.
If, once the 24 hours go by, your hair responds well, you can then apply the mixture to your entire head.
If your hair gets gummy, dry or broken, don’t apply the product to the rest of your hair.
So, now you know how to be 100% sure that Color Oops won’t damage your hair.
- Is there some sort of secret to applying the product?
- If the product is applied wrong, can it damage your hair?
That’s what I’m going to tell you about now.
How to apply Color Oops the right way, so you don’t damage your hair
Applying Color Oops is easy and doesn’t have any risks, as long as you use it correctly.
Many women buy products and apply them to their hair without even stopping to read the instructions.
If the product comes with instructions, why not read them?
You can also find instructions online on many websites or even in videos. So, using Color Oops without following some instructions is unacceptable.Because any deviation from the steps could result in damage to your hair or could leave it in a state that you aren’t going to be happy with.
So, let’s get on to what’s important.
Step 1: Choose a room with proper ventilation
The first and crucial step is to choose a room with adequate ventilation to apply Color Oops.
All the people that use the product complain about its strong odor.
Although the product doesn’t have bleach or ammonia, it does have other chemicals that must be pretty strong to be able to remove the dye. That’s where the smell comes from.
Knowing that ahead of time, it’s important to choose the right place to do the treatment.
Would you do it in your en-suite bathroom?
If your bathroom doesn’t have any windows, then I’d say that’s a hard “no.”
Look for a space where the air moves, especially if it has windows and/or a fan.
This is the first step toward making sure the product works well.
Now, onto step 2.
Step 2: Prepare the mixture
Inside the Color Oops kit, there are two containers. The smaller one has a “1” on it, and the bigger one has a “2” on it. Easy, right?
What you need to do is add the entire contents of container 1 to container 2.
Then, put the top back on container 2 and mix well, so the two liquids combine.
Step 2: Apply the mixture to your hair
Put on the gloves that come with the kit and start applying the mixture to your hair.
Distribute the mixture all the way down your hair using your hands. Be sure to massage it into each section, so the mixture penetrates the hair deeply.
It’s important to apply the mixture quickly and uniformly, so the product can take its effect evenly throughout your hair. If you have a friend, cousin, or neighbor that can help you, that would be great. If not, you can apply the mixture yourself, but you should do it in front of a mirror.
A common question is if it’s necessary to apply the mixture to roots that have not been dyed. The mix doesn’t do anything to hair that hasn’t been dyed, and it also won’t damage it.
So, if you can avoid applying the mixture to your roots if they haven’t been dyed, do it, but if you can’t, don’t worry because it’s not a big deal.
Step 4: Wait for the mixture to take effect
Once your hair is completely covered in the mix, cover it with a shower cap, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Step 5: Wash your hair well
Once the 30 minutes have gone by, it’s time to get the product out of your hair.
Wash your hair with hot water, the hottest water you can bear. Let the water run through your hair until you’re sure that you’ve gotten all of the rest of the product out.
Then you can wash your hair with shampoo one time (or even a few) and finish your wash with a conditioner to hydrate your hair.
Now, I want to give you an important tip.
Even if the product won’t damage your hair, it can indeed dry it out. That’s why it’s essential to include a good conditioner to finish up your wash.
And keep using conditioner the days after you use the Color Oops.
If not, you might wake up with dried out hair, and you’ll ask yourself, “Why is my hair like this?”
Your hair is dried out because you didn’t hydrate it correctly after using Color Oops. So now you know. Don’t forget to hydrate.
Now you know that Color Oops is safe for your hair, and you also know how to apply it correctly.
If you’re still unsure about if Color Oops will damage your hair, I recommend that you keep watching YouTube videos or reading reviews from other women that have used it.
You’ll find very few reviewers saying that the product damaged their hair.
And the reviews that say that Color Oops damaged their hair don’t usually tell about their hair’s prior history.
So, pay a lot of attention to that, too.
If you’ve read a review of someone saying that the product damaged their hair, are they telling the whole story or just what’s convenient for them?
