      Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

      I use this coloring Bc I hate the demarcation area of new roots and the last application of permanent hair coloring. Love this product Bc it slowly washes out without a noticeable line in my hair. The color matches my hair better than what my professional stylist has for semi permenant color. Tip: if you are a regular user of semi permanent dye like me, just apply to the roots and not all over hair. It tends to darken the color on the hair with existing color so it may seem lighter at the roots than the rest of hair for the first week or so.

            I have grays at the temple and on top some. I use this to cover it. I don't find it to help with that if I follow instructions, so I put it on, put a bag over my hair and clip it, and leave it on for about 30-45 minutes. Perfect!
            Then, when it starts to slowly fade, it does so with grace, as opposed to a permanent color that leaves an ugly, stark line in your hair where there is no color.
            The best part is that the best conditioner on the market is included in this. You don't need to use nearly as much as they say, and a quarter sized dab will work. Let it sit while you shave or wash. Then when you rinse it out, you will have the silkiest hair. And it doesn't weigh your hair down. You'll still be fluffy clean and nice. The nice smell lasts too. It's a win-win situation.

                First all, I want to say that I hate coloring my hair. My first color was when I turned 40 when my grays became too noticeable. In the beginning, I had it done at professional hair stylist. However, after a few unsatisfied results, I decided to give OTC hair colors chance. After several attempts at different kinds, this brand became my favorite. The smell was significantly less and I could tell it is much gentler. My hair felt healthy afterwards. Now, this is the only brand I use.

                  I knew my hair was damaged, so I went this route thinking it would be less harsh. It was easy enough to use, but the "light auburn" was more like "tomato red." After several washes, it's better, but I won't use this one again.
