This hair color is AMAZING! I tried it after reading plenty of excellent reviews on here. I'm very glad I took a chance with this product. I have to say I was very skeptical due to the price but I am a definite fan now! First, it is VERY affordable. I was able to get two boxes for less than I used to pay for one of my old brand. There is no ammonia and the smell was not bad at all compared to most hair color. I used a little less than the two boxes (my hair is past my shoulders and thick) and got perfect results! I got the best color results since I stopped getting my hair done professionally. It covered my grays and looks even and very nice. I used my own latex gloves because the ones in the box rip easily. I watched the video on the Revlon website and putting my hair in sections really helped to cover every area. HIGHLY recommend!
I used to use clairol nice and easy before they ruined the entire formula,and left my blonde hair looking dull and bleh,so I spotted this hair color and thought how pretty the color looked on the box I am using 05 ultra light ash blonde I leave it in for about 40 minutes to get the desired lightening results the smell is pleasant unlike the other dyes which have that harsh I wanna gag ammonia smell.the gloves are cheap but usable the conditioner comes in a cheap sachet and it smells a lot like yardley ballet perfume,I have used this product several times the color is nice don't get me wrong but I'm so miserable in the condition it leaves my hair in its dull hard to comb and frizzy don't get me started its actually ruined my hair won't be re purchasing again so long color silk and goodbye!!!
I absolutely adore this product, it is my HG of hair color. I naturally have a dark ash blonde or light ash brown hair color and I use Ultra Light Natural Blonde, and put a shower cap and a towel over my hair as it's processing and 45 minutes later it is a perfect bleach blonde and matches my #613 hair extensions. My hair feels a little dry and definately needs a lot of conditioning afterwards, but that happens with almost any lightening process. I buy this over and over and would recommend it to anyone, do not be turned off by the low price, this is a quality product!
I have been using Revlon Colorsilk Haircolor since after my son was born 28 years ago. YES IT HAS BEEN AROUND THAT LONG! After getting pregnant with him my hair just looked completly yuck. It's like all the life got sucked out of it.( kids do that).
Any way it was mousy and not shiny. I started years ago with the golden blonde to strawberry blonde. Sometimes i would mix the two. For years people assumed that was my hair color. Honestly!
Well, kids are grown, I have moved to an urban area and I thought, "why not"
I took it to a dark chestnut brown and people were likeOMG! I LOVE THAT HAIR COLOR WITH YOUR COLORING. I never had so many compliments. The lighter blonde worked good and so does the brown. But needless to say, this is just as good if not better than the MUCH higher priced colorings.
I honestly didn't expect much from this hair dye. I have naturally an ashy brown and usually get it dyed at the hair dresser, but instead saw this for $4 so just grabbed it.
And it is absolutely great; the price is cheap, easy to apply, leaves my hair silky, but I recommend leaving it on a little less time as my colour came out a bit darker than I expected.
Nevertheless , I will definitely buy this again when I'm not going to the hairdressers.
Before I tried revlon colorsilk dye, I used garner and loreal mostly. I dye my hair at least once or twice a year (I don't really touch up regrowths often, but now I kind of do it). I've never had a good result because my Asian hair was too dark for the shades I wanted. The dyes didn't damage my hair but it didn't condition my hair that well and the color was off.
Last year, I tried the revlon colorsilk for the first time because it was the cheapest drugstore dye I found so I thought.. Why not?
I picked up a medium brown shade (can't remember the number, sorry) I was not impressed with it because the color was off. But without noticing, I kept trying colorsilk dyes because it was half the price as the other dyes. I think it was about my third try.. I was quite impressed with it because I lightened my hair quite a bit although the color was still not what I wanted.
This dye does leave my hair quite healthy and does not damage it. And the plus side is that it says on the box that it contains uv defense and also ammonia free. So I feel safe when I'm using this. The conditioner is very thick and creamy and softens your hair! I wished they gave more of the dye because one box is just enough for me but it's always good to coat your hair a little extra. And the conditioner comes in a little sachet and if you have short hair you can use about 2 uses. I wish they gave more of it or came in a big giant tube like other dye conditioners!
The only downside for me is that my local store that sells this dye does not have a wide election of shades which upsets me.
And by the way, the smell of the dye is a little strong. And the conditioner doesn't smell too nice either. I don't think it is very impressive but it doesn't bother me.
I won't be going back to the other brands unless they discontinue it which I hope they won't!
Sorry for the long review, so my main points are..
It's great, and I will definitely repurchase. (actually I just bought another box today while shopping)
I had lovely blonde hair as a child which has changed to dirty blonde and then to almost a mousey dark blonde/brown as I've aged. I've had my hair professionally colored and I've done it myself. The last few years I've been doing my own to save money. I've tried the most popular brands. Clairol & L'Oreal worked ok but I could never get the light blonde color I really wanted. An ash shade from L'Oreal was a disaster on my hair. Golden colors always pulled too much orange & red. Though my hairstylist cringes everytime I mention using Colorsilk, it has given me the most reliable color results. She is even shocked I can get my hair such a light blonde color without bleaching it. Only Colorsilk has provided enough lift to do that for me.
All the at home processing I've done has left my hair very dry & damaged. Following recommendations from MUA and Sally's Beauty Supply, I did use Colorful - Neutral Protein Filler prior to coloring the last time. I sprayed it all over my long hair and waited about 20 - 30 minutes before coloring. I used 2 boxes of Revlon Colorsilk Ultra-light Natural Blonde 04. I followed the instructions but probably left it on a total of 50 minutes. I love the results. My hair is the light blonde color I wanted. It's shinier than ever and looks healthier than it has in years.
I'm sure the protein filler treatment helped greatly. Colorsilk has never let me down like the other brands have. I'm done experimenting. Don't tell my hairstylist, but I'm sticking with Colorsilk from now on. It's half the cost of the other brands but more importantly, it gives me the results I want. continued >>
Horrible, terrible, DISGUSTING color! I used 05 blond on virgin hair....about as soft as straw afterward, uneven color, a light BROWN shade, And it just FEELS horrid.
The color is so off, it promised ASH blond. And I got light brown? I bought this because it was on sale and I wanted blond hair again. Never, ever, ever again! Not worth the 6 dollars for the two boxes I bought.
I will edit later to see how Garnier Nutrisse covers over this hell hair. I have school in TWO DAYS!!!
EDIT: Thank goodness Garnier helped fix my hair. After a coconut oil treatment and a new box of shade 100 Garnier Nutrisse, my hair is a strawberry blond.
EDIT EDIT: I have been having horrible financial troubles. They have eaten at my budget and forced me to look to this in order to cover my brown roots. I have to say that while it definitely does not lighten to what the box says, it will still get the job done after two or three full hair dye jobs. It does still smell horrid, and makes my hair feel like straw, but I deep condition like crazy afterward.
I miss Herbal Essences box dye, it was genuinely wonderful.
This was an okay hair color. I purchased this just because of the price and I will never buy this again. I dyed my dark brown hair to a medium red color and it guarenteed that it would lighten my hair, It did a little but not enough to even notice a diference. The mixing process of this color was alright, although I needed 2 boxes just to cover my head. This also damaged my hair quite a bit and made it look like straw. I hated the strong smell and the scent of the conditioner. I will never use this again, and I wish it worked well for the sake of the price.
I bought a dark ash blonde color - #60 to put on my brassy hair to counteract the red tones. Although this was dirt cheap - there was a reason... it did absolutely nothing to my hair. Nothing. All it did was make my roots almost a yellow blonde. It looks awful. I'm getting fixed at the hair salon now. I don't know if this is just this specific colour, but I would not recommend it at all.
Worst hair dye I have ever used.
