My hair was highlighted blonde and at the point where the highlights were just about gone and my hair was a washed out blonde. I usually use a light or medium blonde from Clairol to touch up my roots.I took a chance on the Colorsilk because I was going to use the dye all over my hair and wanted a darker color, and this achieved that. It also covered my stubborn grays. My hair wasn't dried out and I left it on for 45 minutes. The reason why I give only three lippies is because the color Dark Blonde is very flat, not like the photo on the box. There was no variation of hues in my hair. It looked like a very ashy, dark blonde.I would recommend this shade if you're trying to get brassy hues out of your hair or creating a base color for highlights. If you're trying to maintain your natural color and just cover grays I would try a different shade.

I've been coloring my very light brown hair for over 20 years. I normally use dark natural blonde Nutrisse, but have tried Colorsilk a few times. I tried the dark blond Colorsilk again two weeks ago, and it COMPLETLELY FRIED my hair. I've never experienced anything like it. Thank goodness I only pulled it through the rest of my hair for the last couple of minutes. My hair is long, and the damage it created is at the roots. I've never seen anything like it. It becomes a complete tangled, knotted mess at the top of my head every time I try to wash it. It also caused quite a bit of hair loss. I'm furious and frustrated as I can't do much more use a ton of argan oil/conditioners. It will just have to grow out.I'm terrified at the thought that I will need to cover the roots again in a few weeks, as I'm about 50% gray. I certainly won't be using Colorsilk, but I'm afraid if I get any color (Nutrisse) on the ruined part again, it will completely break off at the top of my head. This is literally going to take my hair years to recover from.By the way, the dye was on the roots for 30 minutes, which is what the directions say to do for resistant gray. The color is pretty, but that doesn't make me feel better.

I bought this colored based on the other reviews. My hair was almost exactly the same color as the hair color swatch on the box. I just wanted to color my roots but decided to do my whole head just in case the match wasn't perfect. So... my hair is brown now. I'd call it a medium golden brown. I am hopeful that it will fade. The color is pretty but it is not the color on the box. I started out blonde and intended to stay blonde; so, of course, this is a disappointment.

This color will lighten hair that is at a minimum a level 7. I would highly suggest pre-bleaching or lightening a few days prior to applying this color. During application the color will appear dark brown, but will lighten to a sandy, dark dirty-ish blonde. To remove the brassiness associated with box dyes and bleaching, I would HIGHLY recommend placing 20 drops of "Ardel Red Cold Corrector plus" when mixing the box dye. To "boost" the box dye, I placed approx. 1/2 cap of Salon Care 40 vol. developer and approx. 2 caps of 20 vol. Wella Cream Developer. Watch the dye to see the color progression, I left it on for approx. 30 minutes. Following the application, I shampooed with Sally's Generic Value Product's Purple Shampoo (Shimmmerlites dupe); 1st wash left on 5 mins, second wash left on 5 mins to remove any remaining brassiness and achieved the perfect color stated above. Great for those who want a blonde in between warm and ash.

Beautiful color, I normally use light ash brown to get a nice medium ash brown, my color had turned lighter so I decided to work with the lighter color and bought dark blonde to match my roots with the rest of my hair, left it on for 30 minutes and got a nice caramelly-goldy light brown, a little too warm for me but it looks beautiful, the last five minutes it was stinging my scalp, I'm glad I didn't leave it for longer because this color really lifts my virgin hair color, the only thing that I didn't like is that I lost a lot of hair during the wash, that never happens with the light ash brown.EDIT: did a test on roots and it came out very warmed toned, lots and lots of copper highlights, much different than the last time I tried it. I don't know what's going on with Colorsilk lately, the browns are coming out almost black, the blondes are super warm or if they are ash they look green, had to switch to Nice N Easy.

I can't believe Revlon Colorsilk is only $2.50. I bought the shade Dark Blonde to try to return my dyed light brown hair to its natural color, a mousy blonde. It did it beautifully, lightening my hair just enough to resemble its former color. My hair shoes zero signs of damage, so I will definitely be purchasing this brand again.

This is the best haircolor at any price! I have used several different shades of Colorsilk all the way from the Ultra Blondes to Dark Brown, and I have never had a bad result! Most recently I used "Dark Blonde". I started off with about an inch of my naturally very dark, very ash blonde roots, and light blonde highlights, mixed with a more golden blonde. It was also darker underneath from remnants of a brown color I had used awhile back. Despite the multiple shades, this seemed to tie it all together for a more natural look, but my highlights still show through, so it has pretty dimension. This is definitely on the lighter side of "dark blonde" which I expected given the model on the box also has pretty light hair for a shade that's supposed to be dark blonde. My natural shade is about a level 6, but very drab/ashy and this lightens it and adds some warmth without it being too warm. Also, the more times you color with Colorsilk, the more highlights pop up, it looks better and better! This color smells great and leaves my hair softer. I have medium length hair, and I need 2 boxes, but the price of 2 is less than most brands single box dye, so I'm not complaining! *You may check out my profile pics to view my post-color results.

I actually didn't continue with the dyeing of my hair with this product after the strand test, and yet I'm still giving this product top ratings. I colored my hair for many years, using every box dye out there, but especially the supposed higher-end ones. I then stopped coloring all together, and then in the past few years, started getting my color done professionally. I spend over $100 every 5 weeks or so to get my hair colored, on top of which my hair is now extremely damaged. I was looking for a cheaper and gentler alternative when I came across the reviews for this product. I have to say I was skeptical, mainly because of the price. How good could something be that was $2.97 at Wal-Mart?! My skepticism was unfounded. This product beats every other box I have used and infinitely cheaper and gentler than the salon products. My coloring goal was to blend my very light (too light) lengths with my now grown out several inches roots (a very ashy dark blonde). I colored a large swath of hair on the underside; the color actually came out a beautiful honey/ caramel blonde. And NO damage. And NO bad smelling dye. I was beyond amazed. It just wasn't the color I wanted, which amounts to me not choosing a dark enough shade and no fault of the product. I bought two boxes and plan to enjoy the conditioner. My plan now is to hit the hairdressers' one more time and get the color adjusted so that I can then resort to using a Colorsilk product on a regular basis for maintenance. I am so looking forward to enjoying a healthier coloring experience (and a cheaper one).

Thank you MUAers for this gem!In December I went to a new hairdresser (mine had moved) he turned my dark blond with highlights a very dark brown with a black highlights and black around the face. Disaster, tears aplenty ensued. Then I had a colour "correction" done...result was a mish-mash of very brassy roots with ok-ish med blond ends. So my hair was a disaster zone...a very expensive disaster zone.I turned to MUA and saw the reviews for this and thought "what the hell?" I had spent so much money and my hair looks so cheap and nasty I couldn't look any worse.The result is wonderful!!!!!I now have lightest brown/dark blond hair. The brassiness has been toned down dramatically (it is still slightly there but hey) and the ends are tonal too. The overall effect is, well natural.My hair actually looks like a hair colour made in nature (not a preschoolers painting) and is a very pretty colour.Very happy!!!!
