I was really impressed with this. It's the gentlest permanent colour I've ever used. Minimal damage, shiny hair, no burning scalp or unbearable stink. I would have preferred more cool, blonde...

Color fades like crazy, smell isnt overpowering and it doesnt make my scalp itch. i wouldnt buy this again purely because the color fades so quickly.

Doesn't stink or itch as much as other dyes I have tried, stains wash off easily, good coverage, non-drying.

I saw an advert for this and decided to try it out. I have to be careful when buying hair color as my scalp can be fussy and sometimes stings a bit when I use hair color. This is the first one in...

I've used the Light Golden Brown (245) in this product twice now, and I really like it. I found it much less drying than other permanent colours - less than some semis! I normally avoid golden...
