I decided to try this color. I have colored my hair for years and had no problem. None. Nada. For those saying the bad reviews didn't know what they were doing, I'm not sure what else I could have done with the problems I had.
IF you decide to use this, I suggest, at least 3 dark towels, lots of extra gloves, multiple sets of dark clothes, a hose and 3 friends. Is is best as an outdoor activity. If you don't want everything to turn pink.
I'd read mixed reviews so I was wary before I even started. I have dark hair but decided not to bleach because of the horror stories I'd read and I've never done it before. With my luck I'd end up bald. Before I started, I read, re-read and consulted with a friend whose daughter uses this brand and color. I read and re-read the warnings of not letting it touch your clothes or skin because it would turn it pink. Yes, it does. Everything. YET, they only provide one pair of gloves. I layered everything in the bathroom with newspaper. The process time of the color is vague. "Process 30 min to an hour. If you have thick hair, add 30 min." I have short hair but it's thick, so do I process an hour and a half, just an hour or what? I ended up letting it process for about an hour.
Now the rinsing. The instructions said rinse until the water is clear. After 2 hours, let me repeat, T.W.O. H.O.U.R.S., the water N.E.V.E.R. ran clear.
The resulting color was ok. The top of my head was an awesome Crimson color, but the rest was darker. In the sunlight, you could see a lot more red. The color would have been more vibrant if I had bleached it, but I wasn't willing to risk bleaching it myself. For those of you with positive reviews, good for you! But please tell me what the averag
