    Islandgrrl, my hair is in every way the same condition as it was before the process. The only thing with the potential for damage is the amount of rinsing but with adequate conditioning that is also not a problem. Color Oops simply shrinks dye molecules. No lifting and developing.

    I'm so tempted...how badly does it smell?

    You can do the treatments one right after another as long as you think your hair and scalp could handle it. I did my first two three days apart. Then I waited a month just because life was so busy. Then I did the last two three days apart as well.

    It smells pretty bad. It's not the worst smell on the planet and I tolerate it pretty well but it's certainly not a desirable one. It only smells strong when your hair is wet and as far as I can tell can only be smelled when dry if someone is actually sniffing your hair.

    Color oops ingredients... In case anyones interested.
    Part 1 - Deinonized Water, Hydrosulfite, Fragrance, Polysorbate - 80, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cocamidopropylhydroxysultaine

    Part 2 - Deionized Water, Citric Acid, Cocamidopropylhydroxysultaine, Xantham Gum

    I've used part 1 without part 2 and it worked OK (which is just added surfacants besides the citric acid). It's mostly the sulfite base that do the work by shrinking the molecules.

    It can be drying, probably due more to the high amount of surfacants. Sulphur based items can also be drying. I wouldn't say it feels "damaged" but more like it(the hair) needs a good moisture treatment then its OK. Some people with already damaged hair might dry it out too much.

    It also smells like EGGS. Gag. I hated the smell of this stuff, but it does the job well on the right dye's.

    Thanks so much for the info! I'm only a little hesitant since my henna is over a demi-dye, which is brown. I might end up with blonde hair in the length and about 6-8 inches of dark roots.
    I also did indigo and buxus over my henna, but it seems to be coming out fast since my hair is red again.

    Then again the blonde didn't look bad, I just got annoyed by roots, hmmm, I'd rather be half blonde than have this red in it.

    Your hair turned out lovely!

    If Color Oops is similar to ColorFix, I couldn't stand it much longer than half an hour/40 minutes, as it was burning my scalp. I went for half-arsed removal of henndigo and wound up doing some dye work to cover resulting green.

    Your removal seemed to go fantastic, though!

    I went to check the ingredients of Colorfix and they are extremely similar to ColorOops. I imagine you would have a similar reaction. My scalp didn't burn but it did get quite itchy for up to a day afterward.

    I agree. The red was really pretty, but I think your natural color suits you much better.
