I am a fifty-something natural strawberry blonde whose hair is about 5% gray and actually now a brownish-dun-red color. My hair is thick but fine and I have had it home-dyed once before and salon dyed twice before. I recently had highlights and lowlights done professionally. I wanted to add some coppery sheen and minimize the gray and applied Clairol "Nice'n easy" #108, "Natural reddish blonde" for only 15 minutes. My hair came out looking like a red clown wig- orange-red- flaming- aghhhh! I wore it one day like that (mostly waiting until the sun went down to venture outside) and decided that I couldn't "embrace" the new color. I Googled "dyed hair too red" and "Color Oops" came up. Thank God! I read many wonderful reviews, some with cautions, and decided that I had little to lose. I purchased a box of Extra Strength Color Oops at CVS (the guy at the register was kind enough not to point and laugh at Bozo)and went home and followed the directions to a "T". I took a large wall clock into the bathroom with me so that I could keep time from the shower. I washed and rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and washed and rinsed- whew! I now am a peach blonde (not a bleached blonde or even a beach blonde), certainly not my original brownish-dun-red, but I have all of my gray hair back. This new weird color is a little more presentable than the Bozo red, but all in all, I say "NEVER AGAIN" WITH HOME DYES. When/if the urge to change my look comes again, I will JUST SAY NO OR GO TO A PROFESSIONAL. I am not able to do plumbing or electrical work or sew perfectly tailored clothing or repair the brakes on my car- what makes me think that I can combine strong chemicals with myriad variables and reactions and put them on my hair and get good results??? Never again! By the way, the smell of the Color Oops was bad, but I was expecting worse. It permeated everything and is still smelly a day after I applied it. I just threw the clothes that I wore and the towel that I used in the garbage. Good luck to you all....B
I have taken this for two weeks and have felt some slight improvement in my abdominal area, but have not seen any weight loss although I'm taking the 6 pills daily. It may be my metabolism or not...just not sure.
