I had been using Ion demi for roots on gray. I was happy with it, however my overall hair color was a little dull, after Redken EQ salon color and shine faded. After I read the Colorsilk reviews, I was willing to try again permanent hair color after many years. 57 light golden brown (label said "new color") seemed right, and I just completed my color and style. Seems perfect for me. My previous highlights shine through, and my hair color looks natural like the color I was born with. As I approach 60 next month, I think this might be the look for me, and certainly affordable. I will see how it "wears" in the coming weeks, and if the shine fades. Overall, the color and texture of my hair was improved and today I recommend.

I've been using this colour for about three years. I have quite alot of white hair so I don't get one even tone but with lots of highlights as the white hair turns light gold while the rest of my hair looks like the colour on the box model, pretty good for me! I colour my hair every 5 weeks. I wish they sold the conditioner separately. I would love to own a big bottle of it. I did try medium golden brown twice but didn't like it and so I switched back. I'll definitely keep on buying. By the way i agree with one reviewer who mentioned that you have to really saturate your hair with the dye. That's the way to get the best results.

I use this product once a month most of the year (in fall I use a more auburn shade).
First let me say: It is darker than "Light Golden Brown" might lead you to believe. I have what most people would call dark brown or brunette hair.
That said, when I use this hair color, my gray hairs (which I've had since my mid-20s) turn a truly lovely light golden brown. The rest of my hair picks up the darker shade. The end result is a glimmery, multi-dimensional mix of color, light golden to dark brown.
I get lots of "wow, who does your hair?" compliments (and not the "wow, did you dye your hair?!?" kind).
If you do not have grey hairs to pick up the gold tones, you will probably not be pleased with this color. If you have dark brown hair with grays sprinkled through, give it a shot, and save money on highlighting.
FYI: I have shorter hair now, but when my hair was long it took 2-3 boxes to color. However, at this price, that works! I often find it 2-for-$5 and stock up.

I was looking to do the "ombre" look on my medium brown hair. I thought this would be a good color to dye the bottom of my hair, not too light, but definitely a significant change. Not at all what happened. The dye was A LOT darker than the box hints at, and now the ends of my hair are slightly darker than the top. It did not work at all and I will be going out today to get different hair dye to fix this. The conditioner comes in a tiny one use packet unlike most other hair colors today. Though it does smell good and I am a fan of the company not using ammonia in this I would never buy Revlon Colorsilk again.

I have already have light golden brown hair but I wanted to use this hair color to cover my grays and make my hair all one color (roots included). I read the reviews on this and they were pretty positive so I thought I'd give it a try. BIG MISTAKE! This turned my hair a very dark brown, almost black. It did however cover the grays. It also made my hair dull, dull, dull and lifeless (did I mention dull?). I can't wait until it washes out. Back to L'Oreal Preference for me.

This turned out to be a light reddish brown on my dark brown hair. It definitely didn't turn out how it looked in the photo, but I still liked it. It's one of my favorite shades now, actually. I think it looks even better as it fades. I love that these are so cheap and work well on my hair.

My go to hair color. My hair is fine and thin so one box for my chest length hair is enough. But I am thinking that maybe I need to try using two boxes instead of just one? My hair is naturally dark brown, but with just one box of this, it becomes medium brown. Maybe if I use two boxes, it will be light brown? edit: I used two boxes on my chest length hair today. While there was still a LOT of product left, I just wiped it all on the top of my head. Apparently, your hair needs to saturated with the product to get the desired result. In other words, close to dripping wet. Still not as light as I hoped it would be, BUT it is so much better. It turns reddish brown on me though. At first I didnt understand why, but now I understand that's hair lingo for brassyness. Next time I will use light ash brown because that's what I am supposed to use.

This is the WORST hair color I have ever used. There is nothing SHIMMERING OR LUMINOUS about this color, yet they call it color silk LUMINISTA. DECEPTION!!!!!! It is a dull, flat, ugly color that has some pink tinge to it.
What has happened to Clairol BALSAM COLOR??? My natural hair looks copper in the sunlight, this looks pink and ugly blonde if you can call it that.
I would never recommend this to any one.

This is the perfect golden brown - not too light, not too dark and not too red. Perfect.

Pros: No strong ammonia smell, super cheap
Cons: Sucky gloves, tiny packet of conditioner (one use), turned my dark blonde hair a reddish-brown---way too brassy, faded within 2 weeks even with shampoo for color treated hair (although in my case this was a good thing)
I ended up covering this with L'Oreal Excellence in Light Ash Brown & my hair looks 100 times better--plus I have a huge tube of deep conditioner now.
Bottom line: Spend the extra $3 and get something better than this.

Been using various types of home colouring, usually whatever is on offer. Colorsilk is among the cheapest, as is Garnier in my country, so i alternate between these two brands. Yesterday out of the blue, I wanted to change my hair colour, wanting to go lighter. I am a level 2 with red/brown undertone, and my desired colour is level 4 (2 levels lighter is the max for home coloring), which is light brown. [For more info on hair color levels and understones, check out http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip000110.htm and http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip095.htm. Helps a lot!]
So i went to the nearest ds and Garnier was on sale but they didnt have the colour that i wanted. My next choice was Colorsilk and since people told me to take one shade lighter when doing home coloring, i took the #54 - light golden brown. That night, after the whole process (my hair does have that straw texture after rinsing but everything went fine after the conditioner), i kinda felt disappointed. My hair is still dark! I had the color on me for about 45 minutes, with my head covered in a plastic showercap!
Overall, my hair is soft, with gorgeous even reddish brown highlights all over my head but not the color I expected. Im gonna let my hair rest for a while then hunt for the blond shades next to see whether it'll work or not! But yeah, Colorsilk is a good brand, no patches or uneven streaks. Smells good too. The Colorsilk website has a color recommender to help you choose the right color.

I was going to go to the salon to get my hair colored because it has been an absolute mess - bleached out on top and dark underneath. My hair is long and damaged and difficult to color, but I don't have the time or $$$ to do a salon run right now.
I picked this up at Target for 2.99 each (I bought 2 since my hair is long, about 5 inches past my shoulders).
I let it sit for 10 minutes on the bottom layers because they are so dark and the top is so light! Then I applied it to the top, left on for another 20 minutes and washed it out. It is gorgeous! Shimmery, shiny, golden light brown - exactly how it looks on the box. I was terrified I would get some funky brassy color because the bleach I had put on it earlier had turned it a nasty orange, but this covered all of that and is so even and just beautiful. It is not mousy or boring at all!!
Yes, the gloves included suck, but I just use my own. Pick up a package of gloves at Home Depot - they're cheap and it's worth it.
I am amazed at the results for the price - $6 compared the to $150 and 3 hours+ of the salon? I'll take the $6 and 30 minutes!!

Every six weeks or so I need to cover the grays at the roots. My hair is naturally light brown. I usually buy light brown ash/neutral tone in hair color but the store was out of anything in my brand that was close to what I wanted. Colorsilk has no smell and a great conditioner pack. Unfortunately three weeks later the grays are back.

I had tried every other hair color product but this one in my 20 years of coloring my hair! And this is the very best!! It lasts longer than salon color and does what I expect it to do. I finally learned that if you want medium brown you have to go with light brown. My natural color is blackest black and all I've ever wanted was lighter brown hair. This adds a lot of red to my blonde highlights (bleached to blonde this summer) and natural color. The light brown is a little darker. They both bleach my black roots and cover my greys. I am blissfully happy with this product! I am saving tons of money and getting great results. What more could a girl ask for? I am thinking that I need to stock up on this just in case. Oh and I have very dry hair and have minimal if any damage with this wonderful product. My Holy grail finally!

Okay, so I color my hair waayyy too much! I highlighted it a couple of weeks ago (with Frost & Glo)...then decided to try L'oreal Light Ash Brown. That left my hair with dark ends...and light brown highlights...which quickly started fading. So, after reading all the great reviews about Colorsilk, I decided I would try it.
I bought the Light Golden Brown hoping to make it one uniform lightish brown color. Now, I've been coloring my hair long enough to know that it wouldn't turn out like on the box...and it may even end up looking crazy...but I'm willing to deal with that...a glutton for punishment I suppose.
Anyway, this color did a pretty good job overall. My roots are a nice caramely color (or light golden brown)...the rest of my hair did lighten slightly, but I would still consider the ends a dark reddish brown at this point. But the color is not so off that is does not blend well together. Overall, I like the color and may actually stick with this for a week or two!! (maybe!)
The package is horrible as many have already stated. Cheap gloves, cheap conditioner package, etc...but it was the color I cared about...not the other stuff.
The price is unbeatable...I got mine for $2.99 at Wal-Mart. And, that was its normal price...not a "sale" price.
The amount of haircoloring? Could use a little more. I have hair that's right past my shoulders and it was a struggle making sure I had everything evenly covered. Next time, I would definitely buy 2 packs.
The conditioner was actually half-decent, although the packaging was bad. But that's okay, I have a million different conditioners I can use anyway.
So, my final say is...it's a good hair coloring! It's just as good as any of the high priced ones...the color did what I expected it would do giving the state of my hair & my hair still feels in great condition 3 days later. So, yes, I'll definitely buy again. Although, next time, I think I'll go for the light reddish brown or medium golden brown...think it may blend the dark & light parts a little better.
