I used 5a light ash brown. Didn't irritate my scalp, the chemical smell came out after the first wash. I love that it has 2 applications in 1 package. The color came out great. No red tones & no green or gray cast. Perfect. I usually use loreal's hicolor but I think I like this brand better. HG.
This leaves my hair soft and shiny, and bright. I use the 6RG, a dark, tangerine copper on my level 6-7 brown hair. It comes out very natural. It lasts, doesn't smell too horrible, and is easy to use. I have tried may natural reds from other brands, and this is my favorite.
I really like this hair dye! The color I used basically is a toner as well, I bought the 7A (high lift cool blonde) and it took my medium brassy blonde hair to a light ash blonde. Exactly what I wanted. It also smells good and leaves your hair feeling soft.
This hair color faded within a week. I dyed over my highlighted blond hair with a dark golden blonde. I had people asking each time they saw me if I dyed my hair a different color after only dying my hair once. I realized this was because my color was fading terribly. It didn't color my roots so they appeared darker than the rest of my hair. This just didnt work for me. Maybe I should have gone darker, like light brown which is my natural color. I do have to say this hair color and the developer also made by this brand did not burn my scalp or have a strol odor. Overall a MEH experience.
Absolutely INCREDIBLE! I bought the med chocolate brown after a horrible bleaching attempt! My hair was burnt, but I used this dye and my hair feels amazing! I feel as though I just conditioned my hair! I love it!!!!
Best hair dye, EVER! Feels like you're conditioning your hair! Just incredible!
I have been pre-lightening and using various brands of professional hair color and wanted to try one that wouldn't fade and go brassy so easily. I just tried this brand in 9A and it was gorgeous! I am going to try the darker shade, 8A, next. It did not damage my hair at all and didn't fade brassy - at least not as nearly as much as other colors had. The colour looks rich and natural and COOL which is what I wanted! It is a bit more expensive than other brands, though and hard to unwrap. Also, I used a 10 volume peroxide because I had pre-lightened with a combo of lightener and 20 volume peroxide, on scalp. I also used the Argan Oil developer, which I think made it even nicer. I have gotten compliments from everyone including hair dressers, about the colour and how lovely it is! I have cool, skin tones and did not want to have any warmth in the colour as it fades me out.
I'm in love!
First off, I've been dying my hair red with Loreal Hi Color in Brilliant Red for months. My hair is bleach washed under the red. My natural color is a medium brown but I haven't been natural in years. I tried to put an ash brown box color over the red last week and it just slightly dulled my red and looked awful.
I decided I really just wanted to go back to a natural tone but I had to get rid of the red first. So I went to Sally Beauty Supply for the goods. I got some One n' Only Color Fix to remove all the red as the associate told me it was their best selling color remover. I was having a super hard time figuring out what color would look good after I strip my hair. ( my hair absorbs color and seems to turn black on the ends very easily.) So the associate pointed me towards One n' Only hair color, which was buy one get one free, in the color 5A Light Ash Brown with 20 volume developer. I was skeptical because I've never used a " light" brunette color and the swatch was an awful green looking brown. But I decided to take her advise going with the theory that ash tones cancel reds. I also picked up a packet of the One n' Only moisture mask for after color conditioning.
So... I used one application of the Color Fix for 45 minutes and after processing I was SHOCKED. All the red was gone, my hair was totally light yellow with copper tones throughout. ( Because of the bleaching I had done previous to going red) I did a strand test with the Light Ash Brown at my temple and surprisingly, the color was lighter than I expected with no red tones showing through. :-) The dye mixture was thick and creamy with a pleasant smell for hair dye. Very easy to apply with no dripping.
I did my whole head, roots first, using half the tube ( one application) and it was the perfect amount for my thin shoulder length hair. I processed for 30 minutes.
My color is a gorgeous light ash brown with the slightest bit of copper tones sprinkled throughout, which actually looks good and natural. My hair is even and I just can't get over how much I love this color. Also my hair is soft and really shiney and that's amazing after all I've put it through. I'm so happy that I think I'm going back to Sally's to get more before their BOGO sale ends. This is definitely my new color, I'm hooked!
I LOOOOOOVE this hair color. First thing, I have long hair so I usually have to buy two boxes to cover my whole head. One box is about 6 dollars, less if you have memberships at sallys. One box for 6 dollars covers my whole head because it comes with a tube worth of 2 applications. The color is vibrant is stays on my hair well. After I colored my hair I literally felt like my hair did not go through any chemical process, It actually made me feel like my hair was shiner and softer. It much be because of the argan oil and other ingredients in the dye.
I bought this color this month at sallys and It was a buy one box get one box free. Hurry up before the month ends! You guys wont regret it :)
Tried this for the first time and loved it. I ombred my own hair and it turned out too brassy. I used this along with ardells red gold corrector to tone the brassiness and it turned out perfect. I used dark ash blonde. Will defn use this product again next time!
