I am 46 years old and have short hair. THis color comes out like Sharon Osbourne! It is wonderful! I get so many compliments. I have to use Wen cleansing shampoo on my hair or it will fade. A great tip is do not use the shampoo in this kit after you color. Or the color fades.
So I have been coloring my hair red for almost a year now. When I saw this color I thought it was really pretty and wanted to try it from what I normally used. After I colored it, my hair was black! I was very upset. I will never buy this color again!
I came into this with, what I thought to be, generally realistic expectations. I did a bleach bath on my hair a few days ago and my hair took on an orangey cast (not read neon orange crazy reds). I thought this stuff would bring me to a safe-ish neutral ground because I didn't really have much to tone. Went on well, I was surprised the whole bottle covered my hair that never happens, and it didn't have a bad smell; nothing horrible happened. Not to say anything good happened though either, actually nothing happened at all. It altered the color of the towel I was working with, but not my hair at all. Save your money, just go to a beauty supply and by a toner and developer. This only seems to work (somewhat well) for one in every two hundred purchases.
