Well, I use to go to a hair salon to get my hair done & just couldnt afford it anymore so I started trying out different hair colors. I used a permenant Loreal brand for a while and had good look but got tired of the color. Over the years my hair has started to thin and turn grey so I looked for a semi-permenant color I liked. After many tries I fell in love with a color by Natural Instincts,26 Hot Cocoa. It was GORGEOUS but, my greys would turn white again very quickly and I mean very quickly so I decided to give a permenant color a chance again.
After reading the reviews here I tried Nutrisse color 535. The color on my roots which was a natural light brown, turned a red color and much brighter than I expected. So if you are a light brown all over, your hair will REALY pick up on the red in this color. The rest of my hair, which was still a chocolate color from the Natural Instincts color, turned a darker chocolate/red color.
All in all, it is a very pretty color and I just have to get use to the red. For me, I have always gotten compliments when red tones come through my hair, so Im ok with how it is. I am still going to try & find a color though that is more of the chocolate brown that I found with the semi-perm Natural Instincts.
I'll post another review in a few weeks after I've gotten use to the color. My hair is very soft & shiney so that's good. All in all, this is a great product & I would recommend it to anyone.
