I used this product to reverse ombre my own hair. I wanted a semi/demi just in case it turned out awful looking. My natural haircolor is a champagne, medium golden blonde. I have been dying my hair for about thirty years (yes I'm old lol). I sectioned my hair into two levels-ash blonde on top, 5CH on the bottom. The first time I did this, it came out beautiful. Over time, the color washed out. I decided to try this look again. The second time I used 4CH. I once again did this and the dye didn't come out even. I had to do it three times (10% developer) to receive an equal result. It's most likely due to having slightly damaged/dry hair to start with. After one month, I tried to remove the color. I shampooed and conditioned every other day to try to make it wash out. Nope. It just muted the tone a bit, leaving my hair muddy looking. I asked a professional hairdresser how to get back to one shade of blonde and get the remainder of this color OUT. She said that bleaching or a color remover shouldn't be necessary, to just use a high-lift ash blonde. I did this today and I still have hot roots and mid-lengths. So, to be fair, here are the pros: leaves hair shiny and silky, easy to apply, good price as you get two treatments in one tube, beautiful shade of chocolate brownCons: stinks a little, extremely hard to remove from blonde hair, will stain every surface it touches, make sure you protect your sink, counters, and clothing. I used an old towel in my tub to keep the wash out from staining the surface when I dyed it.In hindsight, I realize I should have just kept dying the bottom half of my hair with it as it faded, or used a permanent color.

My poor hair. It's been through a lot. I've been coloring my hair every month or so for at least 10 years. My natural color is a level 5 ash brown. At my age (44) I notice every single gray hair. In the past year alone I have colored my hair from a level 3 dark red/brown all the way to a level 10 blonde, and every shade in between, even rose gold this past summer. I have colored at home with box kits, at home with dye from Sally beauty supply, and had it done professionally at least 6 times as well. My latest hair escapade was a level 5 chocolate brown with level 10 platinum highlights, quite a striking contrast! I liked it for about 2 weeks, then hated the striped effect. I left it alone for a month. Then I decided to color the highlights darker. So...not wanting to end up with murky green highlights I did some research. I went to Sally Beauty Supply and bought Colorful Neutral Protein Filler, One 'n Only Argan Oil permanent hair color in 7G Medium Golden Blonde and One 'n Only 20 Volume developer. I used the protein filler as directed and the 7G color and couldn't be happier with the results! Those platinum highlights were colored a nice light tobacco brown, no murky green at all! My roots were lightened slightly to a nice light brown. The darker hair underneath was very slightly lightened from a level 5 to a level 6 brown. Very pretty! Lots of dimension to my hair color, and best of all no more stripes! I've used this brand hair color before, in the 3RV Dark Red Violet Brown as well, with great results then as well. One 'n Only covers gray very well, doesn't fade and does not damage my overly processed hair. It has a pleasant smell and is very easy to use. This is by far the best home hair color I have ever used. I bought the 7G Medium Golden Blonde because I actually wanted a nice light brown, and I know from experience that my hair will come out about 1-2 shades darker than the swatch color or the color on the box. Just my own personal experience with any brand of dye I've ever used.I would recommend using the protein filler every time you color if you have been coloring your hair for a while; and if you have very damaged hair or have bleached your hair the protein filler is a must! It helps the color distribute evenly and really improves the condition of your hair. I'm honestly surprised I have any hair left after all I have put it through. But every time I've used One 'n Only I have been pleased with the results. It is way cheaper than going to a salon, and with a little research and educating yourself on hair coloring science and techniques you can achieve just about any color result you want yourself. I highly recommend One 'n Only Argan Oil hair color!

EDIT: After four rounds of this product, my hair was orangey blonde in the root area and light brown mid-ends, each time my hair turned a bright blonde (lvl 9-10) but the moment I started to wash the product after processing it would go back to a darker shade, all in all the product works, but didn't work for ME, at a whooping $21 CAD per box it just wasn't worth it, I will however say that a week after the four rounds I used a high lift dye and my hair is almost platinum blonde at the moment, and I'm sure the remover helped by stripping old dye!I'm gonna start by saying that I'm "one of those people" that never learns their lesson, pretty much every year or every two years I go through the same cycle of wanting to go from blonde to brown because I have this picture in my head of beautiful warm brown hair, so I promptly ignore everybody telling me brown, red or whatever other colour doesn't suit me (what do they know anyways?!!!) then once I do dye my hair brown I realize the person in the picture in my head obviously wasn't me because I always regret it and want to go back blonde. So I did it again, this time I used L'Oreal's Power Copper because I wanted to rock red hair, after a few washes it faded back to bleach blonde (note my hair didn't hold color due to being overprocessed and damaged), then I tried another reddish color, which after washing a few times left me with the "natural redhead" and after more washes went strawberry blonde, naturally I got tired of the faded look so I went for dark blonde, which grabbed dark and turned light brown, which faded to light blonde again. At this point I was quite upset that no matter what I did I ended up blonde so I bought Ion's Brilliant 12 in 5G (Brilliant 12 is known to run a lot darker than the swatches and I was aware of that). Props to Ion for having a dye that doesn't fade no matter how much you try, my hair was a dark dark brown, and at that point I realized I should never have done any of this foolishness, so I tried the Vitamin C wash twice to get rid of the dye but that didn't do a single thing, I proceeded to buy Color Oops, after processing it was bright blonde with no red in it, and a little bit of orange, so I was happy, surprisingly, AS I WASHED I could see the re-oxidization happening, this wasn't from not washing long enough, it got darker the moment I started to wash!I waited a few days and bought two boxes of Colorfix, I got two uses from one box (this product is $21 in Canada so OUCH). Again after processing for 20 minutes, my hair was almost bleach blonde, and once again I was excited, until I started washing, then it got dark again, so I did a second round of Colorfix, washed again and watched my hair turning darker, but this time I'm left with orangey blonde, better than brown I suppose, I do not know if this is due to my hair being overprocessed or perhaps the extremely hard water where I live is affecting the outcome, so I will attempt this again using different water. This product does work, and the smell might be terrible, but it's not half as bad as other brands.

This review is for the colour Perfect Intensity "Midnight Blue" only. If you're thinking blue and want this colour, ask yourself, do I want a colour blue that lasts, and lasts, and lasts? Do I want my towels, bathtub, white shirts, feet to be a Smurfy Blue for a month?If the answer is yes, go ahead and buy this blue demon in a tube!If you are doing a streak of it, it bleeds into nearby hair and stains it.So, Jun 28 I decided I wanted blue. I used the same brand in "Perfect Purple" the month before and it largely faded to pink in a month. So I bleached most of it out and went Midnight Blue.Wear gloves! Your nails, fingers, nail polish will stain blue for like 2 days.Cover shoulders with towel you don't like and begin to apply colour as you would normally. I found it a little thick so I added a little warm water and applied the whole tube to my shoulder length bleached blonde hair.(the back is still a little brassy and not all the pink had come out)Left on 45 minutes under a cap. Then the disaster began. I hopped in the shower to rinse. And rinse, and rinse. I washed it, conditioned it and rinsed again. Does the blue ever stop coming out? No, no it does not. When the water heater gave up the ghost and started turning cold, I gave up...1/2 an hour of rinsing...I stepped out of tub and dripped blue all over the new bath mats...FYI dry off in shower and wrap hair in towel before leaving the tub. And the tub? If it was red instead of blue, it would look like a crime scene.And I look in the mirror...horror of horrors, my face, body, even my feet have a blue tinge. I'm a SMurf!!!Makeup remover and a LOT of cotton balls later I was less blue, lol. FYI, you may want to rinse hair in the sink for a few weeks because, yes, I turned blue tinged for about 2 weeks of showers after. So did the towels, tub, feet, hands, pillow case and white shirts. :O Every time I washed my hair I ended up blue tinged.Fast forward 1 month. It faded a little but nothing like previous products. It was still pretty darn blue.Enter Manic Panic volume 30 bleach...45minutes and....it's still freaking blue!Fast forward another month...colour remover and developer volume 30 (bought at Sally's on their recommendation) I could only leave it in for about 15 minutes because my scalp was burning and itching...still blue. Grrr and my hair felt like straw.I went back to Manic Panic September 24th, left on for an hour and STILL kinda blue. 3 bleaches and 3 months and it looks like I've been swimming in chlorine and has a greenish tinge to it. 1 more bleach next month and I think it'll be back to platinum blonde...maybe.So, still thinking of Argan Oil Midnight Blue? Do so at your own risk. :D

This is really good! Makes my fine, frizzy, hair soft without weighing it down. Got three uses out of a small pack. Smell is fine, I don't really notice it.
