      I liked that it didn't make a dramatic change as I was afraid to colour my hair to begin with. I chose the right shade and no crying afterwards which is good!! I hope it lasts long enough but I just did it yesterday. So far so good ! I would buy it again.

        Just wish more stores would carry the dark warm brown. I have hazel eyes and this color makes them look so bright. I have so much body when using this product. It is conditioning to my hair.

          Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

          This is a great product. But it's important to understand color and developers. This is a product meant to deposit color with mininal lift. So if you're wanting to color grays or add some depth to your natural color, this is for you. If you're looking to make a big change from dark to light this isnt what you want. For that you'll want a permanent Level 3 or even a double process. Know your color wheel too. And know that you will NEVER get the color on the model on the box as she doesn't have your hair color, type, texture or condition. Demi perms and level 2 colors will be darker than you expect to begin with. If your hair is damaged and porous it's going to grab the color faster and hold it longer than four weeks. If you're blonde going dark, you need to deposit the pigments you're missing, so don't go from platinum to dark brown without a few steps in between. You can't just buy a box and expect it to be perfect. If you use ash it will pull green. If you use golden it will pull orange. Go a shade lighter than you think when in doubt. If you understand all of this, there won't be any surprises when you color your hair.

          Having said all of that...this is a great product for in between perm color (Level 3) and a great alternative to perm color. I've used this for years even when I was bleach blonde from my natural dark brown without issue. Its perfect for depositing color and much less damaging. Now that I'm sporting nearly black hair and have about 40% gray, I use this in between my Level 3 colors to refresh color and tone down the red that seems to peek out once in a while. Excellent product, especially since Clairol discontinued the old beloved Loving Care line.

            This is the first time I tried Clairol Natural Instincts! I usually use either Perfect 10 or the Anti Ageing hair color, which is also by Clairol. I was pleasantly surprised with the way it turned out and I'm sure I will be using this color again in the future.

                It Dried my hair and damaged it. I've been dying my hair for over 20 year and never had such bad experience with hair color as I had with this product.
