not good coverage if ur trying to go blonde

I am a long time hair colorer and tried the 10 min color. It was really great how fast I was able to process, my usual dye has to be left on for 40 minutes for my ultra blonde color. However, I was not happy with the results which lightened, but did NOT completely color my roots. I have short hair and had plenty of color on all of it, but for ultra blonde I think you have to have a full length hair color. I will admit though that my hair felt SUPER soft and healthy! I wish the color had worked 🙁

Review of: 4R – Cherry Chestnut, Dark Auburn

For the last few years I had been dying my hair every 6 weeks or so with Loreal Feria – 45 French Roast (Deep Bronzed Brown). I naturally have a dark brown hair with cool tones. In addition, even though I am in my very early 30’s, I have a decent amount of grey hair (about 30%), and have been covering it since my 20’s. I have enough grey that within a few weeks of coloring the roots start to show again.The Feria hair color I always use is great, but I wanted a slight change for summer. I was looking for some warmer tones, but didn’t want anything too red or with a purple hue. After looking around for a while, I found this Clairol dye in the 4R Cherry Chestnut. I have a ton of hair (long and thick), so picked up 2 boxes. I was shocked to find I should have had at least 3. There was about half as much hair color/dye in one box of this Clairol than there was in a box of Feria hair color. If you have medium to thick hair, and it’s at least shoulder length, you will definitely need more than one box of hair color to cover all your hair.It’s supposed to work in about 10 minutes, however I left it in for about 15-20, since I have a good amount of grey hair. The color came out nice, a dark brown with a very slight warm cherry hue to it. Not a stark red or with any purple hues. Just a warm dark brown color. Also included in each box is a root touch-up color packet for using after a few weeks. Perfect for using if you get greys in obvious areas like the side-burn area or around your bangs.This color is great for giving those who have dark hair a warm touch to it. I could see those with light hair color (light brown, blond, etc) getting a much more red-ish brown color from using this. Perhaps even more red than you’re looking for. But for those who have medium to dark brown hair, this color is great for just giving it a warm color boost. It also did cover all my greys, however I left my hair color in for longer than the 10 minutes mentioned on the box. I wanted to get a good color saturation, so 15-20 minutes later I had my warm summer color in dark brown, with full grey hair coverage.

pretty

It came out a little darker than expected on me, but my hair has been doing that to me lately. I can’t go lighter anymore for some reason. I bought this since my roots were growing in and I have a wedding to attend soon. I had dyed it black earlier in the year and was growing it out. I even cut my hair super short to get rid of the black. But because of the wedding I had to dye it again. This was only a 10 minute application so I did it in no time! It did darken the black that is in my hair which I wasn’t looking forward to. I know I could of just gotten a root touch up, but then I thought it would be super obvious like it was anyway. My hair looks way healthier than before. Usually does after you dye it. I only like Clairol when it comes to hair dyes, they aren’t so damaging and the colours are very vibrant. And if you do dye your hair black, the black will fade over time with Clairol. So that is a good thing if you don’t dye it black again and do a dark brown, it’ll blend nicely.

Zero Grey Coverage

I have colored my hair for years. I decided to try this brand after reading multiple reviews on it. I was excited to try it, and used it exactly according to directions other than some of the reviews said leave it on longer than 10 mins so left on 12. ZERO grey coverage, like I hadn’t done ANYTHING. Complete waste of time/money. Crazy. It doesn’t do anything at all to cover grey. I went back and bought my Loreal today and will wait a few days and do that, but now am a little scared of coloring my hair twice in a week.

Toasted almond is beautiful

The toasted almond looks great. Its not too gray or too red it gives a more natural look. If you must use peroxide then i highly recommend it. If you have a lot of gray then the Sebastian cellophanes is better for hair.

Perfect color

I had reddish hair and was gradually lightening it with the idea of going to white. However, my hair as it turns out, is extremely resistant to lightening and the red kept coming through after a while making it look yellow and not pale. So, I gave up and bought this to darken it up just a bit. I was worried that it would turn my hair a funny color after all the lightening, but it didn’t. It covered every hair, the color is lovely, it didn’t damage my hair and it turned out very pretty. I would definitely recommend using this product.

Clairol Natural Instincts Vibrant 5 RB Fiery Cinnamon Medium Reddish Brown

Before I used this hair dye, I had dyed my hair about 3 months prior. I bought it to cover my roots and to amp up my hair color. This color is RED. When I was dying it, my hair looked Super Mario red. But the color came out great when I washed it out. The color on the box makes you think this will make your hair dark red. If you have lighter to medium brown hair it will be bright. The only complaint I have of this product is that the color fades quickly, in a few weeks; but it comes with a color refresher to put on after a couple weeks AND an extra pair of gloves for when you need to apply it. I would give it a B-
