Add me to the people who tried truffle and ended up with purple hair (despite being fairly dark brown red before hand) and it fried my hair so bad, I ended up cutting it all off into a pixie cut. Now I need to dye it after it's faded even after the cut because it looks like this weird faded empty looking purple red brown and no depth... even after lots of conditioning and choppy chop, it looks dry. -.- I used 20 developer. 25 mins.
I bought the color truffle, and i had a medium brown hair with blonde streaks......the first time i applied this dye i used 20 vol developer,it washed out so quick qnd my hair felt so dri, i had to dye it again after only a week and a half,the second time i used 10 vol developer....it still is washing out so quick on the ends, so it looks like two different washed out tones...sucks....i dont want to keep having to dye it every other week as i amtrying to grow it out..
I've been using Ion Brilliance pretty regularly to cover my grays, but my color was starting to look a bit flat to me, so I thought I'd try something new. I bought the 20% developer and color Chocolate. So far I've only used it to touch up in the front, but I love the color. On my naturally dark brown hair, it came out a rich mahogany color. I can't wait to do the rest of my hair.
Wow this color is awesome. I used Cinnamon and Brandy and I have the most gorgeous medium golden brown hair now! I am so impressed with this. it was very messy but soooo worth it.
I have been using this haircolor for over 2 years and I get compliments on pretty the color is and how natural it looks all the time. I use the color Coffee and I mix it with equal parts L'Oreal Preference Medium Brown (neutral base) and a 20 volume developer. I have naturally light reddish-brown hair, so I cut this color with a neutral color since my hair pulls red and turns too red otherwise. I do agree with other saying this is a runny formula; however, there is such a pretty color payoff that it's well worth it to take the extra time a care to apply the color.
It makes me sad that some people gave this stuff a low rating because they didn't really know what they were doing to their hair. Of course your roots are going to come out lighter if you use this on previously dyed hair, and of course you run the risk of other nasty results if dying over an old dye job - it's like that with ANY hair color!
As previously stated, the consistency is really, really runny. However, despite the additional mess I had to clean up, I feel it was actually easier for me to apply than thicker formulas.
I used this in Chocolate and I am in love with the results. As with any dye, it came out a VERY dark reddish brown at first, but after a few washes it's fading into the exact color I was looking for - dark, but not too dark. I'll definitely be using this shade again, and in the future I may go for a lighter look in the same line.
i used this product in chocolate. the swatch is SO pretty, but my hair is almost black with neonpurple/red undertones. looks horrendous. also, my roots are lighter red and the body of my hair looks streaky and black. i used a protein filler so it should have dyed evenly. what a crappy dye. so disappointed, and my hair looks disgusting.
This product seemed to work well, I used a 10 volume developer instead of the recomended 20 or 30, it deposited nice. The consistency is very runny, therefore it is diffucult to apply without a mess. I'd like to try it with the 20 vol. but i'm afraid of the damage. Anyway, I do love the color.
I am a hair color addict, i usually dye my hair a different shade every month. I have tried several shades from this line, but i am in love with Coffee, the darkest shade. It comes out a dark brown/plum color and fades into a dark red. I wish it would stay purple. I have been using this shade for the past couple of months.It is a bit runny, and it ended up all over my walls (my fault, but it is a daily reminder). I haven't been able to find another plum shade, but until i do, i will continue to use coffee. If you like dark hair, you should try this!
I used the mega browns in "coffee" and LOVED it. I have dark brown hair, and this is a dark brown with a red sheen. it is so pretty. When I am out in the sun it has a really nice red tint to it. I love this color and will definitely be buying it again. I used a 20 volume with it.
It has a subtle effect on my dark hair, but it definitely made my hair a beautiful rich color. I can't wait to touch it up (i've got about an inch of roots now.. )
