Color Oops removes color from the hair and helps bring the hair back to its previous hue. As the name implies, Color Oops helps correct color jobs that have gone wrong.
Color Oops works best when the accidental hair color has come out too dark. It does not restore hair color if the hair has been dyed lighter than the natural hair. It can, however, remove the artificial pigment, which makes it easier to re-color the hair. Black dye also is particularly difficult to remove. Color Oops states that hair can be re-colored on the same day when Color Oops is used and that the product is non-damaging and safe.
