I bought the color mood indigo and racy wine. Both did not come out well. I followed the bottle and the color came out tealish instead of blue. Don't expect the color to last long, after 3 washes it completely came off. I tried it a second time leaving it in for 2-3 times longer then the bottle says, after a couple washes the color came out and left in a green tint on my hair for a week. Someone suggested that I leave it in a couple hours because thats how she gets her colors that bright. I listened to her advice and it came out similar to before. Also because the color came out so easily, it dyed my skin. Within the process I washed my hands (I wore gloves but rinsed with my hands) and arms multiple times because the color would keep coming off and going on my skin. I just did it a third time today and I could have sworn I washed my hands clean but they have blue blots and spots on them again. Racy wine came out a dark brown purple instead of a bright red/pink. The colors don't even go on even, I have parts of my hair teal, blonde, and green. Save yourself time, water, soap and don't buy.

Utter crap. I used Bold Gold amongst other brown shades on my bleached blonde hair and none of them worked. As soon as I rinsed my hair the dye went with it. At $7 a bottle it's a total waste of money.

This is for Fuschia Plum. I've seen other people use it and have their ears and clothes stained and I didnt want that. What I did was do an Aphogee treatment (the one where you let it get hard), then put the rinse in. I made sure to sit under the dryer for at least 30 mins. Worked like a charm. My hair is dark so it was just a tint, but it gave me color without damaging my hair which is what I wanted.
I recommend using the Aphogee and making sure to sit under a dryer. I think the Aphogee trick only works if you have a perm.

This review is for the shade CREAM SODA. When my hair was red, I mixed it with a cherry color, and it looked great. Recently, I dyed my hair black with a very misleading shade that turned out navy blue. I remembered that I had a bottle of cream soda left from long ago, and figured that since blue tones out the orange in blonde hair, then it would make sense for an orangey gold to tone out blue. Thankfully I was right. Worked like a charm! I have nothing but good things to say because of that!

I didn't expect much from this product,and while I wasn't overwhelmed by the results,I was pleasantly surprised. I got "Ruby Red" with the intention to turn my dark brown shoulder length hair a nice red-violet burgundy with out any bleach or anything else that would severely damage my hair.,just to experiment over Thanksgiving break.I did a strand test and it turned a very nice purple-red brown,which I was pleased with. Although the color does not show up in pictures,I think it's a quite pretty color of maroon. However,this dye stains fast,and it is the ugliest color of cheeto-orange I have ever seen.My mom and most of my bathroom are stained with this color and it is not coming off. Also, I'm worried the color has begun to fade and it's only day 2!

I have bought the Jazzing in Moon Indigo twice now and been disappointed both times.
The first time I purchased it, it literally had no effect on my hair whatsoever. It just washed out like children's fingerpaint. I ended up throwing away whatever I hadn't attempted to use.
My second encounter with Jazzing was born out of desperation (My hair had just been buzzed and my muddy-colored roots were showing) and cheapness.
My usual go-to, L'Oreal's Starry Black is a wopping eleven bucks at my local Wal-Greens, a bit more than I'm willing to spend. Especially since I don't need a whole bottle, just enough to do the buzzed sides of my mohawk.
So I went next door to the local hair supply shop and poked around for some alternatives. I spied the Jazzing display again and upon seeing the six dollar price tag and conveniently resealable bottle, was promptly hypnotized into forgetting my prior disappointment with it.
Fast-forward to me on my next day off, having bleached my hair in preparation the night prior. I open the bottle and pour out the dye, finding that it appears inordinately oil and runny-looking for a modern semi-perm. I expected it to be messy as hell and a hassle to use by the consistency alone and really, that was the only expectation of mine Jazzing lived up to.
I heat treated it and left it on even longer than the bottle directed, crossing my fingers that I did 'something right' this time around and would get the results promised on package. But as I hinted at earlier, Jazzing really let me down.
Not only did its runny, syrupy texture leak everywhere around my neckline and hairline - permeating barrier gel, and stubbornly stained the hell out of my skin - it didn't stick to my hair at all! I had a few tiny patches of faded teal, not even indigo, that looked like someone had rubbed my head with Aldi's brand Kool-Aid mix.
So I don't know. It ended up being a waste of time and a waste of money that stained my skin but not my hair. I guess this would be totally awesome if you were into turning yourself into a smurf or one of those aliens from Avatar but it fails as a hairdye on all levels.

I initially planned to use the clear color just to add more shine to my hair. But, when I was looking at the display at Sally's, I saw that the Spiced Cognac shade appeared to be close to the honey/amber the lighter shades of my hair are After finding it could be used as a deposit only semi-permanent color I decided to give it a whirl.
My natural hair color is a medium warm brown, it used to develop golden reddish highlights from the sun, and then I began getting professional highlights in my late thirties, moved on to all over base haircolor plus highlights in my forties. By time I was 50 it was base color, highlights, keratin straightening, occasional forrays in to Great Lengths extensions... you get the picture ~ $$$!
About a year and a half ago I stopped going to a colorist and started down the slippery path of Home Color. I just wanted to have my grays be my highlights, and, as many "do it yourself" dyes are translucent, that did not seem an unreasonable game plan.
Something went terribly wrong at first. I don't know if it was the combo of one too many (professional) Brazilian Keratin treatments and me putting demi color on top of permanent color (Goldwell was what my colorist had used) or perhaps it was the decision to switch to Revlon cornsilk, but needing to use heat to bring my hair to the desired shade (I was using Strawberry Blonde) whatever it was, I had extreme breakage, my hair would just snap, not even stretch first, it would just break off. Horrible, it felt like straw. I cut so much off that I kind of looked like David Bowie in his glam rock stage.
Next I tried to get Loreal Preference to work, and discovered 6A (amber something). It is the perfect color for my natural hair, the highlights (i.e. grays) are not quite as vivid as I would like, but my new growth is not that noticeable. I'm at least 60% gray on the top of my head, not so much underneath.
I'd read some reviews here where the person had luck with gray coverage with Jazzing, so I figured, what was to lose? If I could keep from having to touch up new growth due to grays about every 3 weeks with permanent hair color ( my hair grows SO fast!) this strategy could help get my hair into such good condition again. Plus, I hated how the odor from Preference permeated the drains in the bathroom. My bathroom is near the foyer of our home, and the one which our guests use. The ammonia smell from Preference tends to linger unless I pour Clorox down the drains after. If I don't, it just screams dirty cat litter box, without the litter box! Hence another plus for trying Jazzing.
I read the reviews about product staining, etc. I went into the bathroom armed with Aquaphor (didn't have Vaseline) to use as a barrier, I had the long rolled cotton to put around my hairline. I had gloves, I took all of the rugs and towels out of the room. How bad could it be, right? Well, it didn't seem like the Jazzing was any runnier that other hair colors, so that wasn't an issue as far as destroying my bathroom goes. I used heat for about 30 minutes, and rinsed with cool water (shower wand held trying to keep most water going down the drain, but had no issues with it staining tile or grout on shower floor anyway.) I shampooed well, rinsed with cool, conditioned, rinsed with cool water. I was majorly optimistic.... Until I saw it in the mirror after stepping out of the shower!
It stained my forehead despite the barrier jelly. . Importantly it didn't really cover the gray that was new growth, only gray which had previously had permanent haircolor applied to it. So, it was a huge fail for me.
The color was also not how it was represented on label. It is a much fierier orange-ier red, not amber like. So, most of my hair had this fake red look to it, and my roots were still gray. It stained my scalp, which I expected, but because it didn't color my hair at the roots it looked really bad. I tried getting the dye to come off of my forehead and neck with nailpolish remover, as I've had luck in the past getting this to work for permanent haircolor that got onto hard surfaces in my bathroom. It didn't remove it, although it lightened it, and made my skin raw!. So, when posters remark that it stains you skin, this needs to be in BOLD letters! Its not some minor stain, its old lady with a bad hair "dip" stain lol (but really not funny!) My hair was not any shinier after, but maybe it has a different effect if the clear color is used (??)
So, I ended up using my Preference the next day, pulling it through to the ends as much as I could with only one bottle's worth of coverage. This got rid of a lot of the too red in my hair, the rest I'm presuming will fade out with washing. It also helped get the dye off of my skin and scalp.
Jazzing was mostly just a waste of my time, as it was only about $5 per bottle. ( I used about 1 1/2 bottles, my hair is thick, and comes down a few inches past my collar bone. )
I did not want to rate it horribly, as it is after all temporary and inexpensive. The odor was not bad, the squeeze bottle was nice, not having to mix was nice. But it didn't add shine for me, the color didn't turn out anything like I expected, and the staining of skin was just awful to look at.
I'm on the fence about whether I would repurchase in Clear, or just give up on it completely.
EDIT If I try Clear, I may mix it with a tiny bit of leftover color and use it as a color refresher, keeping off the scalp! I think if the color was diluted and used in this manner, it might be a nice brightening effect to refresh my permanent color. If I do I will update here.

I used this color in both Ebony and Ruby Red. I have relaxed hair and it is naturally dark, nearer black rather than dark brown. When I first used the Ruby Red color, it showed up pretty nicely. Though it was only a tint color in my dark hair, it was still seen quite nicely under light (bulbs and natural light) and especially with flash photos. Ebony was the same way for me; friends noticed when my hair seemed darker than usual, which was what I was going for. I'll caution though that application of this is pretty messy for wear clothes you don't mind getting ruined and wear gloves. I would also suggest treating this like a semi-permanent color, which means sitting under a heated dryer for at least 30 minutes.

I used the Jazzing Clear to seal, add shine, and refresh my color a few days after coloring. My hair is permed and I use Demi Permanent color every few weeks, and I wanted to add shine and make the color last longer. I applied the Jazzing Clear all over damp hair and used heat per the directions, and it lasted very well. It adds shine and makes my processd hair feel smoother and less frizzy. However: it has Hydrolized Wheat Protein, so when used all-over, it makes my hair smell like beer when damp. So I have stopped using it. I have yet to find anything to replace it. Every other clear shine product I have found so far also has the wheat protein.

Jazzing is a tricky dye to use but it can have great results! I've used most of the colours in their line-up, Cherry Cola being one of my favorite hair colours ever. You have to be careful with application, since the colour is a runny rinse consistency, but if applied to pre-lightened hair and left one for a good long time it can deliver stunning results. The blue colour fades like crazy though, I would avoid using that one...

Wow I never thought this would cause such severe itching to the point where I was drawing blood since I was scratching so much. I purchased this because I wanted to give my hair a sort of "shine" to it. I followed the directions to the letter and when I dried my hair, my scalp was itching like crazy. It took me a couple of days to attributed to this tint. I had to trash it. Color payoff was so-so but dang it I suffered an allergic reaction to it.

I'll update when I wash my hair more, but I applied this on bleached hair two days ago and it's pretty bright. I left Ruby Red in for a few hours under a shower cap and heated it from time to time. In betwen, I wrapped it in a hot towel. Ruby Red is orangish red, which is what I wanted. :D Will let you know as time goes on... So far, for the price, pretty good!
Edit: I did a vinegar rinse and washed my hair today two days since dyeing and none of the color washed out into my shampoo! It's very orange toned and bright! Edit: it's been a while and this color is staying in better than Manic Panic-- at half the cost, go with this one. Sure, it's runny and doesn't claim to condition like MP, but this product hasn't let me down yet.

i love this product...if used as directed you get the best results...alot of people complain about the staing it may cause...well if you read.. it will tell you to add a cream or protectant around the edges and also not the apply directly on scalp which all color products states. ive used it since i was 16 i am now 22 and ive applied it my self each time no staining for me. As far as the smell its an ordinary smell for a chemical i havent came across a dye that made me want to wear it as perfume. I usually use the cherry cola red hot or the plum ive mixed the together done the top of my head one color the bottom another it shows so well on my hair an i have naturally dark hair. and even tho it says you can use after relaxing i always wait two to three days. i was raised in a beauty salon i know better but it always leaves my hair feeling like i just deep conditioned it...oh and a tip when rising used cold water so your hair holds the color....

I just adore this product. It has saved me from a henna disaster! Six months ago, I put body art quality henna in my light red brown hair and it turned it a orangey red with copper highlights which I hated. Since body art quality henna is PERMANENT, I was stuck with the color and the permanent color line when my roots started growing out. I simply could not have that and went in search of a semi-permanent hair color that would not damage my hair. Clairol Jazzing fit the bill. I used this in toasted chesnut with is a beautiful medium auburn color. I did a test strand to make sure I was going to like the color. Also, the first time I used this product, I did not use heat on it and it lasted through 4 shampoos. The second time I sat under a hair bonnet for 20 minutes and the color came out richer and a bit darker than when used without heat. Here is the funny part, I have received so many compliments on my hair with the toasted chestunut in it and it covers the ugly henna beautifully. I shampoo this out of my hair and then apply a deep conditioner and my hair is fine. I must say that the first 24 hours after coloring, my hair feels like it has a coating on it but after that, my hair feels fine. The only downside to this product is the strong old lady too sweet pomander scent that lingers throught the first day.

HORRIBLE. I bought this product (in Cherry Cola) thinking it would add a nice reddish tint to my hair. It seemed fine to use, but I was appauled and shocked at all the problems it gave me. Not only did it fail miserably to even color my hair the slightest bit, but it also made a huge mess. The consistency of the dye was very thin and runny. What's worse is that when the time came to wash it, as the directions told, the dye splattered all over my shower and bathroom, causing it to resemble a hematic, gory crime scene (literally--the entire room, and my body, looked as if drenched in blood)
Not a decent product whatsoever. Messy and frustrating to use.

This stuff was awful on my hair. Perhaps I'm biased having used (and liked) Sebastian Cellophanes but I imagine, even if I had not used the Sebastian, I would still think it sucks. My reason: it left my hair incredibly dull as if a heavy film was left on it. I say YUCK.
I think I've tried this twice. Once, many years ago, I used the Clear. Then, again about a year ago I used one of the dark/warm blonde colors because Sebastian Cellophane was not available while it was being reformulated.
fyi - I have thick coarse hair that looks gorgeous after using Sebastian Cellophanes, but looks like a yucky mess after using Clairol Jazzing.

Wow. I feel like I have new hair! I used "Icicle", a sheer violet, to tone done brassiness in my hair. I processed for about 15 minutes, without heat (next time I'll use heat, to get more violet tone). My hair is soft and shiny and smoother than its been in a long time. Its very hard to get shine out of light hair, but this really helped. This stuff is cheap at around $4, and easy to use. It doesn't smell great, but the scent is bearable. I loved the texture it left my hair, but I barely noticed any color toning. Overall though, this is a very good product.

i've only used this once and it gave me shine...but not as much shine as when i use my coconut oil mask......i did the whole leave it on for 20-30 mins under dryer bit as well...not sure if i wanna repurchase....

I got this based on reviews, lol. My hair is getting a little dull towards the end of my pregnancy and this sounded like a nice solution. I got this in clear just to add some shine and it really seems to have done the trick. The only problem I had is it made my scalp a little itchy, but that might just be pregnancy sensitivity. I dye my hair a lot and have only had bleach really bother me, so I dunno. My hair looks nice and that makes me happy. :)
