Although this color was too warm, it concealed my bad blonde highlights nicely. It is a warm, auberney brown, and my natural color is a very cool medium brown. I can't afford to fix these cheesy bad highlights now, so I am happy that i can at least blend everything together. Very good product, but I wish there were an option for my color from Aveda.
The BEST color enhancing product for brunette hair out there. This literally blows any drugstore enhancing product out of the water (including brunette suave, brillliant brunette, sunsilk, Pantene brunette expressions). I apply the Clove conditioner to wet hair, put on a shower cap and leave on for as long as possible, close to 15-20 minutes. After rinsing and drying, there is a noticable, just stepped out of a salon look to my hair. Although it only lasts through a few shampoos it is definetly worth it for a quick enhancement for a night out. ;)
FYI: rinse shower completely and wash hands with soap as it will stain if not careful.
Wow, I read the reviews on this product and am very pleased with the outcome of using this wonderful conditioner! I have light brown hair and do get it highlighted every 6-8 weeks.....i wanted to go a little darker and make my highlights less blonde and more auburn or light brown.. I was hesitant to try this because I heard it did make hair darker and I have had hair disasters in the past..I left on for 3 minutes (the directions say 2-5 minutes or longer if you want darker results).....THIS WAS JUST PERFECT ! I highly recommend it not only as a beautiful auburny brown color but also as a conditioner, it made my hair shiny and full! I love it and will definitely buy again and again! Thanks AVEDA!
Holy cow this was a lifesaver. I have naturally dark blonde hair with medium and light blonde highlights. I'm going through a poor period and decided to use a color depositing shampoo (sunsilk, and not even the auburn one!) to try to take away some of the edge of the blonde, but it turned my highlights orange. Like I tried to dye my hair with koolaid, orange. It was ghastly. Thankfully I found this (which is what I wanted to begin with, but was trying to save even more money). I washed out the orange as best I could, and applied this for 30 minutes. I was left with naturally colored light brownish/hints of honey hair that I actually got compliments on. Phew. That was a close call. HG all the way!! I heard this was being discontinued but I really hope not!!
This conditioner didn't leave my hair all that soft. It worked fair but the smell is horrible and the color of it is such a pain. It stains the shower walls if you get it there accidentally.
I am trying to save money and extend the time between coloring. However, my medium brown hair tends to lighten up and get brassy after several weeks. Also, now that my hair is darker, the grays are starting to appear more quickly. I tried this for the first time today, used as directed, and love it! My hair feels like it was just colored, soft and smooth. The brown is blended and toned and the grays, while not completely gone, are muted. Next time I will try to leave on a bit longer. The salon told me to use just once a week, but it is going to be hard not to use it more often!! Paid $16 for 8 ounces, but if it continues to work this well, it is more than worth it!
I've never been compelled to review anything before, but this conditioner is amazing. My blond salon highlights came out way too high on my brown hair...after one use of this, the color is completely blended and beautifully warm.
I had growing out highlights and my roots were showing. I couldn't get in to see my stylist for 3 weeks so I bought this stuff at Dillard's. My hair was blended very nicely. I thought about going dark again, but wasn't sure. This conditioner wasn't at all harsh and deposited color wonderfully. I do think I could have used a little more conditioning, because my hair is especially dry. Otherwise, it does what it says. Actually it does more than what it says. I really deposits color. Love it!
I am THRILLED with this conditioner after just using it for the first time! I bought it after reading the glowing MUA reviews and am soooo happy that I did.
My hair has been through some major self-imposed trauma lately. I overdid it with the highlights and then tried to dye over them. I ended up with a color (or colors) which wasn't *horrible* but had areas of ashy highlights, some ok highlights, and then a brassy color at the roots. I wanted something to blend this blondish, brownish mess without redying and further destroying my hair...or possibly making matters worse with the color!
My hair is naturally very fine, though I have a lot of it, and lt. brown/dark ashy blonde (naturally). This stuff not only did wonders for the color, but my hair actually feels very soft and conditioned...not weighed down in the least or dry. This stuff really does a decent job conditioning! As I mentioned, I just used this for the first time and followed the directions (left on 2-5 min. and then I clipped hair on top of head) since I wasn't sure how my porous hair would absorb the stuff. I think next time I may try to leave it on a bit longer. I will use this as others have to keep blending my colored hair with the new virgin hair. Great stuff. Wow!!!
This product is a necessity if your highlights come out too high! Really tones them down and blends to your hair (if you have brown to light brown hair of course). Price: Worth it! Much cheaper than getting your hair re-done! Plus, you only need to use it maybe twice a week - so it goes a long way!
