Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

WHY, WHY, WHY is Ulta not carrying this product anymore? This is MY color. I've used it for years but it's getting harder and harder to find. Ulta was my last go-to place to find it. I went into the just opened new Ulta store in Downy, California and discovered they don't carry ANY Natural Instincts anymore! The stores that do still carry Natural Instincts virtually never have my color: Natural Instincts 6.5R Light Auburn. If they put on the box the reasons I use it maybe more people would choose this color and it would be on ALL the shelves that carry Natural Instincts. It's the most natural looking Red because there is NO PINK TINT like the other Reds. Also, because it's semi-permanent, not only is it gentler on your hair but when your roots grow they are less obvious.

Best Uses

  • Touch Ups

Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

Left my hair very soft compared to permanent dye. I used this color over my already highlighted hair and it helped to tone down the yellow and darken my hair a bit. However it's been 3 washes and I can already see the color fading. Color did not lighten my dark roots. Although it's not as long lasting as I would have hoped it's definitely a great option to changing up your hair color and without causing damage.

    I tried the medium cool brown on my roots to touch up between coloring. I didn't notice much of a difference in color at all and didn't have a the "cool" tone I was looking for.

        Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

        The lightest shade went slightly dark on me, but the formula is great. Non offensive scent, works quickly, covers greys and is lasting well. No worries about it washing out. I purchased as an in between touch up, but I would consider repurchasing when I don't need highlights.

          I love these temporary colors as they fade out, no color lines. I have a little gray and it does cover it, but the color is lighter.

          The box says its "semi-permanent" ITS NOT. I HAD BEAUTIFUL BLONDE NATURAL HAIR THAT WAS HEALTHY AND I USED THIS JUST TO TRY OUT ANOTHER COLOR... ITS AN AWFUL BROWN AND IT STAYS PERMANENTLY. AWFUL AWFUL PRODUCT.

          Be prepared for your towels to be stained for the first few days after coloring your hair. My dark blonde highlighted hair looks good with the red, but I know have three colors (dark blonde, light blonde and red) after less than a week of washing. I was told that I looked edgy. Never my goal, but still a compliment. I have decided to go with a permanent light auburn hair color after this experiment. I expect to recolor my hair within the next week.
