        I adore this product. I purchased it after a licensed professional fried my hair. It smells amazing and made my hair super soft! I didn't have to mix it with anything either. It went straight from the container into my hair. Could not be more simple!

        Love the vibrancy. The color was easy to use and mix with other punky colors. Added conditioner to lighten and give my ends a little extra love. Color is vibrant even on my copper colored ends. Would definitely recommend although I wish there was a larger size.

            This product is lovely, I've used it in the past and have always been satisfied with the result. If you have black/dark hair it will show as just a tint to the hair but if you bleach first the color is very vibrant.

              Comments about Jerome Russell Punky Colour:

              please read before purchasing "cotton candy"!!
              i don't regularly use punky colours, so i don't know about the other dyes or how well they take to hair.
              i have white/silvery hair (almost the lightest color of blonde you can achieve with naturally brown hair) that is about a few inches longer than shoulder length, so it's considered long hair. i applied the cotton candy color from my local ulta. i followed all of the instructions correctly and even left the dye on for about an hour instead of the recommended 15-30 minutes. when i washed it out the first time, the dye only took to the top part of my hair somewhat correctly, leaving the rest an extremely light tint that you could barely see. I ended up taking a second shower and spent about twenty minutes scrubbing my scalp to get rid of the pink since it was so uneven and awful looking. I finally got it back to my regular white color with only a slight pink tint. waste of time and money. maybe this would work for a very light and thin pixie cut or bob, but do not use on long hair unless youre willing to buy about four bottles.

              Comments about Jerome Russell Punky Colour:

              This dye is amazing. I have used it for almost a year now. I have Cotton Candy, Violet, and Purple. I had previously used Splat dyes and had friends who used other dyes, but neither compared to this. The biggest pro is that it doesn't stain. I've seen how some semi-permanent dyes bleed when the person sweats, during rain, and after every shower. This dye doesn't.
              A few things if you are considering Punky Color: The color is very concentrated, I used Purple right from the jar and my hair came out neon. What I do is mix dye into white conditioner until I like the color, sometimes mixing multiple colors to create a unique shade. Secondly: this has only worked on my bleached hair. I naturally have blond hair, but the dye only shows up on the hair I bleached, not my roots. Probably because my bleached hair is more porous. Lastly: the Cotton Candy is probably my least favorite. It did not show up like the other ones, even straight from the jar (not diluted). I am going to try it again though, once I re-bleach all of my hair to platinum. I actually mixed Purple into conditioner and got a light pink result. I would recommend using either Purple (because it is so warm toned) or Flamingo Pink mixed into conditioner to create a cotton candy color.
              I will say that it fades fast. I don't mind because I like changing my tone regularly, so it makes it easy. the parts that don't fade by the time the rest has, I use baking soda mixed with hydrogen peroxide, and it takes the bits of dye right out. Also, I most recently used a little bit of diluted Violet to tone my completely faded out, bleached hair. I love it! If you are considering a semi-permanent toner I would recommend just buying Violet and mixing it with conditioner. Save a lot of money, because one jar will last a long time. My next project is dying my hair peach, I will be buying Flamingo Pink to create that. I know this review is long, but I hope someone finds it helpful.

              Comments about Jerome Russell Punky Colour:

              It reads that you can use it on brown hair as well as blond. I wanted to add pink streaks to my light brown hair. I first put bleach highlights in so that the color would pop. The color didn't catch to either the bleached strands or my light brown hair. I followed all of the directions. It's not worth spending money on again.

              It did smell good, however :)
