Easily Undo A Dreadful Dye Job
By Marci Robin, Senior Online Editor |
We're not saying you can't get great results coloring your hair at home, but you have to admit there's a greater risk of things going horribly, irreversibly wrong if you do it yourself. Actually, maybe not so irreversibly...
There's a little lifesaver-in-a-box all amateur at-home-colorists should have on standby, and it's called-aptly-Color Oops. So, let's say you dyed your hair what the packaging said would be Cinnamon Sunset and it turned out Doesn't-Exist-In-Nature Fuchsia. Although this seems like an emergency, forgo the 911 call and instead apply the Extra Strength formula. Free of ammonia and bleach, Color Oops shrinks the unwanted dye molecules so they can literally be washed away.
If you dyed your hair darker, Color Oops will return it back to your original lighter shade. On the other hand, if you chemically lightened your hair, Color Oops will delete the dye, but your hair will still be lighter. But not to worry! Because this "magic eraser" is so gentle, you can dye your hair darker that very same day!
Unless you have someone willing to run out and buy it for you when tragedy strikes, we highly recommended keeping Color Oops on-hand instead of waiting for a dye disaster. After all, you probably don't want to reveal your discolored 'do to even the drugstore checkout girl.
