I have dark brown hair that pulls red. Over the course of 18 months my stylist worked my hair into a platinum balayage. I have hard well water and have tried several high-end shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks. Nothing was keeping the orange from creeping back in - even though I only wash my hair every 6 days. This meant yet another trip into the salon for an "anti-brass treatment". I noticed a significant decrease of the orange in my hair after just one use with this product! Now that I've had four applications, people are asking me if I went back to the salon for a touch up! This stuff ACTUALLY WORKS. I use as directed - I shut the water off in my shower, towel dry my hair, apply the product, wait 3-5 min, and rise out. It's that easy! I'm definitely a repeat customer and have already made several recommendations to my blonde friends!
For those of us who have color treated hair this is a good send. Not only is it an amazing conditioner it also adds a bit of transparent color, reviving the inevitable fade outs before your next color treatment. I use this once a week starting one week after my salon appointment. The results have been dramatic. It helps my color go the distance until my next visit to the salon. And it leaves my hair soft and shiny. It is easy to apply with gloves and only needs three minutes to do its work. This product was recommended to me by my stylist and I couldn't be happier.
My natural hair color is Ash Brown and the Cool Brown Fabuloso fits perfectly! I started using this because I didn't want to dye my hair blonde anymore. Cool Brown matches my roots but it doesn't cover the greys very long, if at all. I'm ok with this because it looks like I'm greying naturally, and I won't have to cut off my 18 inches of bleached and permed hair to start over.
This product leaves my hair silky soft, and it smells nice too. I like it dark, so I do slather it on thick, comb it through, and then leave it on for no more than 15 minutes. I wash my hair once a week and just get it wet when I shower on the other days. I never use any heat, and I very rarely use products. Since I have very fine hair, and it's long, the less I do to it the healthier it stays. This also helps to keep the color.
We are in the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, our hair salons shut down in March and are not due to reopen until late June. This temporary coloring product does NOT cover gray hairs very well, but DOES add color to the color that's already there, some shine, and some bounce. I use Clear Brown, which almost exactly duplicates my salon color, and after reading all reviews I made sure to have some ratty old beach towels and nitrile gloves handy because it definitely will stain if you are not careful. Follow the instructions and use the timing they suggest. I can't comment on the other colors offered, but if you want a true brown without brassy or red overtones, this is the color for you. A gentle temporary product that eventually washes out and needs to be used once a week for now, and I can definitely see me using it between salon visits when things get back to normal (or our "new normal"). Note: I also use John Frieda Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner between this weekly hair coloring product. I would have given this product five stars if only it had covered the emerging grays just a tiny bit better.
