well i have used revlon dye for a while but was afraid to dye it black because it seems like it fries the most but i just dyed my hair today and used revlon colorsilk in soft black 11 and i absolutely love it! the application was easy and it rinsed off pretty clear in the shower and it didn't stain my bathtub at all, my only complaint would be that its so messy but then again it is hair dye, overall i love the price i love the quality oh and a quick tip make sure your hair is completely clean before using this, there was a bit of hairspray residue in my hair before using and when i rinsed my hair it didn't feel as soft as it normally does when i dye my hair i recommend this to anyone however!! if your hair is thin or damaged it is a terrible idea to dye it with this product, that type of hair usually needs extra attention from a specialists, hope this helped somebody!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this hair color! I have been a hair dye junkie for years and have tried every single hair color on the market,drugstore and higher end and this is hands down the BEST hair color ever and have used it for years without any problems!!Alot of hair dye has a strong chemical smell,but this has very low odor to it and the after color conditioner it comes with smells soooo good!It does not fade on me and stays true to the color.My hair grows really,really fast so I have to dye the roots once a month and every other month I dye all my hair to "freshen"it up/.I use #10 Black.My mother has just started dying her hair at home instead of going to the salon and getting it pulled through a cap and after listening to me ramble on about how much I love this hair color she tried it and also loved it!She uses #51 Light Brown.Oh and you can't beat the price at $3.00 or 2 for $5.00!!!!

I'm sorry, but I had this colour in dark auburn. My fine hair is now reallly really dry and I need lots of conditioner to reduce the damage that has been done.
Revlon hair dye, no, not for me!!!!

I've had 1 good and 1 bad experience with this product. My hair is naturally a nice shade of auburn/light brown but I like to change it up every once in a while (every 4-6 months). So the first time I used this dye I used a dark brown which came out beautifully! The color was even and lustrous and vibrant-everything I could ask for in a hair dye! My hair was left looking and feeling healthier and more shiny then it did before I dyed it. The bad thing about it is it faded REALLY fast! I'm talking a couple weeks. Maybe 2 or 3 weeks and it was almost all gone. Just recently I used the same brand to dye my hair black. It came out very spotty and not vibrant so I had to go out and buy another bottle and re-dye it to cover up the parts that hadn't been dyed. It looked a little better after that, but let me tell you-it left my hair in the WORST condition it has ever been in! Maybe this happened because I had to dye it twice, but my hair was dull, flat, and it even felt like became thinner after I used this product. Not at all like the first time I used it. I dyed it black about 3 months ago and this time the color faded more slowly, and just now it is beginning to go back to it's natural color. I think this product has made my hair less healthy and it is a pain to get it back to it's original healthy state. The price is cheap for a reason I guess. I wouldn't recommend this product (especially the black color) to anyone. Especially if you have long hair like me.

Having seen so many recommendations from MUA... and thinking of changing hair color for the first time in my life, I went to local drugstore and got this in Dark Brown for 5 bucks.

I did the Strand Test, and the color didnt seem to be visible after I left it on for 25 minutes. Coz of its claim to give me chocolate brown hair, I used them all to color my hair anyway...and left the color on my hair for a whole hour. (I have natural black hair, so I think the color would have to sit on my hair longer as I didnt bleach them?)

Result?
Uh... my hair's kinda smoother...but my friends didnt see visible brown color in my hair =( Well I saw brown hair under fluorescent light through... So I just dunno if I was successful or fail in my 1st time hair coloring.

I think I would give its Dark Auburn a shot next time.

Naturally I have light auburn hair that turns into a very unflattering strawberry blonde color when it gets sunbleached, since I also have really fair skin that makes me look sort of albino-ish so I like to dye my hair in colors close to my natural one but a tad darker. I've done this since I was about 12 so by now I've tried pretty much every red/auburn color that is out there, and I still haven't found the perfect shade until I tried this. I found this on sale for about 5 dollars, I got it in dark auburn. I seriously went home and tried it, then rushed back before the store closed and bought like 10 boxes more - enough to dye my hair for about 6 months.

I LOVE IT! It's the most natural, best looking color I have ever tried. It looks about the same as it does when I dye my hair at the salon, even better actually. It was 5 dollars, it's ammonia-free and doesn't smell as bad as most other colors, the conditioner that came with it was awesome and left my hair extremely soft and shiny - I can't say enough good things about it. The only downside to it was that my head burned like hell for 25 minutes, BUT when I saw the result it was totally worth it. No one would ever guess that I dyed my hair, it looks that natural.

Next time I'm gonna try it in medium auburn. :-)

I normally use Wella colors or other more professional stuff from Sally's to get my naturally dark brown hair to my signature light auburn/dark strawberry blonde color. I couldn't get to a Sally's though, so I picked up this ColorSilk in Strawberry Blonde, hoping and praying it would work to lighten my hair about four shades at the roots. Well by god, after 45 minutes on the hair, it did! Granted natural pigment will lift much more in the roots where it's warmer, but I was really impressed! It matches the rest of my hair perfectly, and got rid of the gray at my temples way better than other color has. It's very natural looking and vibrant, and I'm very excited that it only cost me $3.

Oh my word do i hate this hair color product! I'm kinda a maniac when it comes to dying my hair. I love to change my hair color. I'm naturally a blonde, but most often color my hair dark. It looks better on me. I went thru a period that I needed to conserve extra spending money and just buy what was needed. Well, when you have dark hair and blonde roots start to grow it, i call it NEEDED! haha. So i thought, well i'll try this out because it's much cheaper. Ok, it's cheap for a reason! The dark color stained my scalp horribly, and in chunks so i ended up looking like i had some bald spots for about a week. Everytime i washed my hair the shampoo lather would be purple. And not just a purple hue, PURPLE! like i hadnt washed the color product out of my hair and this went on for months!!! Washing my hair every day to every other day with purple coming out of my hair. And it didnt make my hair look as healthy as many other dyes can. So if you are cutting back and not going to a salon, at least spend 7 bucks on Clairol! :)

So I have the case of uneven hair color...
During the summer, my hair reacts with the sun and I get these crazy highlights in red, orange, and almost blonde colors! Everyone likes it BUT me... I just want my consistent dark brown hair color all through out.

The solution? Revlon ColorSilk in Dark Brown!!! Oh my goodness. This did not dry out my hair, my hair was super soft, and it was a beautiful even color! I cannot be more happy about this dye.

It's dirt cheap too! I got it for 2.99 at Walgreens! :D Don't let the price fool you.. it's lovely.

So I decided on a whim to color my hair from my natural dark brown hair to black after about 2 years since my last dye job. Luckily I read the reviews here first before committing to a brand. I bought 2 boxes because my hair is long. I realized that I could have just used one box because my hair may be long but it is very fine and thin so only one box was needed for the coverage I needed. The end results are FANTASTIC! I loved that it didn't stink nor make a mess. I did get some on my skin but luckily I put vaseline around my hair line so it wiped away quickly. Waited about 30 minutes before I washed it out. Note to others who hate the ketchup packet conditioner: CUT IT OPEN BEFORE SHOWERING! Takes 2 seconds versus 5 minutes of struggling to open it with wet hands! I do admit the gloves were a bit tacky and got dye in places where it's supposed to be protected but oh well, the dye came off the next day. All in all, this is just awesome! The price you can buy atleast 4 boxes under $10. I got a ton of compliments and I have to admit I do feel like a vixen now! Thanks, MUA for making my decision a good one!!!
