I had to use this twice (two boxes) to get the effect I wanted, but I have thick black Asian hair. It definitely is brown now, but it's pretty dry and it did nothing to cover my greys. But they aren't as noticable since my hair is lighter. Took a few shampoos to get the smell out, but it wasn't that bad.

I have black hair and was looking to dye it a medium brown color, my first try was with l'oreal which did nothing to my hair, then i used garnier the second week and although it didn't come out to my desired color, the dye did lighten my hair quite a bit, at first my roots were a bright orange, but they toned down a bit after. i got quite a bit of compliments on my hair also. the dye left my hair feeling soft and silky. i would buy again!

I used this product b/c I wanted a new brunette look for the fall. I am asian with naturally very black hair (dyed it dark brown a few months ago to get rid of highlights) and it worked wonderfully! My hair isn't too light (yay no tackiness!) but it's just light enough to see the brown in the sunlight and indoor lighting. I would say it definitely isn't brassy or reddish, just a warm medium brown. The only bad thing is the smell that lingers while applying and after rinsing! Overall, I love it, it is way better than other hair dyes that do not do anything to my black hair.

This was the first permanent hair color I ever tried, and three years later, and over twenty colorings later, I realized it was the right way to go. I only changed it because I was bored with it, but now my hair has been dyed so much that I am skeptical about whether it will still work. My hair is naturally very dark brown and it lifted it to a lightish reddish brown, gorgeous. It wasn't even that damaging. Way less damaging than any other high-lift browns from feria and such. I am going to use it again most likely, after using color oops to get rid of my hideous black color I currently used, and see how it works. I'll see if I can update then.

Cutting to the chase, this made my hair really brassy. I guess I should just stick to regular dyes and not high lifting ones.

I don't understand this product because it hasn't been consistent at all for me in terms of brassiness. The reason why I purchased it again was because the shade was so nice and rich the first time around and lasted a really long time, but when I bought it and used it again months later over the same color, it turned my hair orange-y.

I've been using this dye (Golden Brown) every 6 weeks for the last 2 years. Obviously I really like it since I've been using it for so long! My hair is naturally medium ash/neutral brown and this dye makes it a beautiful light golden brown. My hair is definitely damaged but I think that has more to do with two perms in the last year in addition to coloring every six weeks. If I didn't perm my hair I don't think there would be much damage at all. I knocked off a lippie for the applicator. There's nothing wrong with it but the one you get with L'Oreal Excellence is so much better.

Compared to Revlon Colorsilk dyes, this one left my hair luxuriously soft and silky. my natural hair color is a dark brown black (asian) and very thick and wavy. When i first washed out the dye, i was absublutly HORRIFIED! my roots were bright orange and my hair was this dark, red-orange color. however, a couple days later, the color set in (i'm guessing) and now it looks streaked with a beautiful gold-brown color.

I love this haircolor, I get sooooo many compliments. I have naturally black hair (level 2), and this takes me to a level 5 medium brown shade. Its so shiny forever, depends on how the light hits my hair, my hair looks highlighted, people always ask me where I go to get my hair done. I used to get for $60 for touchup or $100 for highlights, its good to know that I no longer have to use bleach in my hair and pay so much at a salon. This stuff is $5 at ulta.

I have naturally dark brown hair with medium/reddish-brown ends. I was skeptical that it would really "lift" my brown but I tried it anyway. I followed the directions for previously colored hair and ended up with reddish brown lengths/ends and orange roots, except where I missed spots near my crown -- there I have an attractive mix of muddy brown and bright orange. Argh. I will end up correcting this with a brown dye.

I have black hair which was permed 2 weeks before I used Garnier 100 color in UB3 (golden brown). The hair color turned my hair to a nice medium reddish brown. Although I like the color, those who want the exact same result as the box may be disappointed. The product has ok scent (fainter than some other hair colors) and is easy to apply.

Well, it worked for me! I have very dye-resistant dark brown hair, and this is the only product I've tried so far that has truly lightened it! Not to light brown, but to a very nice, slightly reddish medium brown (I used the Golden Brown color). The redness is to be expected with "Golden" in the product name. Luckily, it suits me! Only minus: the awful smell (it is hair dye after all) lingers a bit too long after washing the dye out - but that goes away and the color is still there!

this product did lift my dark brown hair but to a very unflattering shade of auburn/orange with copper highlights,just awful,it looks terrible,i'm going back to dark brown as soon as i can color my hair again,will not repurchase.

I've been using the Ultra Lift Browns in Cool Brown for three months, and I love it! My hair is naturally dark brown and this lightens it to a very natural-looking auburn. It's a little redder than I first expected, but like I said, it looks very natural. My friend has used Golden Brown with fantastic results as well, and it doesn't damage our hair. Worth a try.

9/8/07 - Updated to say that I have now used all three (3) shades in this color line. I had the most success with the Cool Brown shade and the worst experience with the Golden Brown.
I recently applied the Gold Brown in the retouch method that was recommended and it developed into an embarassing, brassy, tangerine mess. I hate it. (I will soon be applying a temporary light brown rinse over it.) I think that the best advice that I can give, when using these types of colors, is to apply the color to your lengths first and then to your scalp and hairline. Because of the heat of your scalp, there is a danger that the color will devlop faster and stronger than the rest of your hair and turn lighter, brighter and brassier. Such a disapointment. I don't think that I will be re-purchasing again.
I recently used the Garnier 100% Ultra Lift Browns in Mahagony Brown. Prior to using this, I tried the Preference and Nice and Easy Products for Dark Hair and the L'oreal product for Dark Hair. These did little to nothing to lighten my hair, but, rather gave me highlights. The Garnier product was successful in lifting my dark hair, but, the results were a rusty, gold light brown.
