      I was trying to go back to my natural hair color and the dark ash blonde looked very close. I didn't want my hair to be one solid color and I really liked that this had a highlight kit paired with it. I had a friend help me with the highlights since I didn't trust myself since I can't see the back of my head well enough. She did a great job and it was super easy and the color looks great! Very natural, although you could place the highlights however you want if you desire chunkier highlights.

          I have used this brand for years. I love the ability to color my hair and add highlights without having to go see my stylist and spend major bucks. It looks very natural and I when I tell people I do it myself they are amazed. And as my hair gets grayer it is still working well.

            I love this alternative to a one-step color. The amount of highlighting is totally controllable, so you can add just a few streaks or be bolder. The only downside is learning how to use the tools they give you for the highlighting. The finger tool seems to get lots of hairs wrapped around it and I haven't had luck using it. I like the brthe brush better.

                      A:

                      Hi Lynn. Thanks for asking us about selecting a shade in Couleur Experte. Since your hair is already dyed a darker shade, there is no way to lighten the dyed shade using another hair color. We would recommend selecting a slightly lighter shade like the caramel glaze 5.0 or the ginger twist 6.4. Use the first half of the kit to color your roots but don't bring the color through the previously dyed hair. Once your roots are done, use the highlighting mixture to add highlights throughout the hair. This will blend the slightly lighter roots with the darker ends and give the hair an all over lighter look.

                      Hello Jj! We do not recommend mixing our shades. Did you mean mixing 8.2 and 8.0? They are both medium blonde shades, but they have different undertones. 8.0 has a neutral undertone while 8.2 has an iridescent undertone. We do not currently have any other medium blonde shades in Couleur Experte, but we will share your suggestion with our team!

                  • Q:

                    I used this product, different color, about 1 month ago. I want to use a different color today that is more of my natural color. Color on hair is Light Golden Brown Brioche 6.3 with highlights, want to use Vanilla Icing, Dark Ash Blonde 7.1 today. Since I have some new hair growth that is a darker with gray how should I apply to make sure the color is consistent from top to bottom.

                      A:

                      Hi Annette! Make sure the 6.3 is faded on your hair. If it is not, shampoo it every day with a shampoo that is not made for color-treated hair. Once the color is faded, follow the root touch-up application in the instructions. Since the lengths and ends already have color on them, they will not need as much time as the roots. We hope this answers your question!

                      Hi Victoria! We do not recommend using Couleur Experte on extensions because we have not tested this product that way and are not sure what the results would be. You could use this product on natural, brown hair. We would recommend using one of our brown shades, like Caramel Glaze 5.0.

                      Hi there! If you have medium to light brown hair, you can choose several of our blonde shades such as biscotti, vanilla icing, or toasted coconut. The base color like all haircolors will lighten hair or darken hair and cover gray. Once you apply your base color, then apply the highlights. We hope this helps!
