I'm thinking about using one of those at home boxes to go a few shades lighter with my hair color. I'm just wondering if it's risky to try to go lighter at home or if I really need to leave this to a professional. I don't want to end up with any brassiness - however, I don't want to spend the money at a salon either.Answer Question

You're not going to be able to go lighter without bleaching. Home box colors or professional products will not lighten without bleaching.
Forget using Color Oops - it's a product designed to remove artificial color but will not lift natural color.
Instead of attempting to lift all the color, I suggest to get highlights at a salon. It will look more natural and you won't have a distinctive line of color as it grows out - you will see that within a month of changing the color if you do the entire head.
The number 1 correcton we see in the salon is hair color. If you do not know what you are doing you could end up paying 2 to 3 times more getting it corrected than if you had it done in a salon the first time.
