    Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

    Overall I like it and would buy again. It lasts long, cover my greys ( now about 20% of my hair), and is very gentle And is natural. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because iT come out so much darker than the represented color. The first time around I did a strand test as usual and it seemed fine. But on the whole head the natural blond came out dark brown. My natural hair is much need lighter than that. I Corrected with Color Oops and went back too clairol. I returned extra boxes of natural blond (8). But then I gave it another try. I wanted my natural color, between light brown and dark blond. I mixed pearl blond (11.8) and light natural blond (9) and it came out very nice, just like I wanted. It is lasting long time too. And it is easier to apply than clairol natural instincts which I like too.

      Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

      I don't use permanent color because it's too harsh for my hair but I'm sometimes frustrated by how quickly the gray returns. That is not the case with this product. I was a bit concerned that the color might be too "maroon" but it is not. Unfortunately, it is being discontinued at my local Ulta, so I returned to buy more for future use. Love the results.

        Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

        I've been using the U-Color products for several years. I used to use the dark brown to cover up the gray in my dark-brown hair. Last summer, I decided to get warm red-toned highlights from my professional salon stylist, but that also meant she would still have to apply a base color to cover the gray hair. While the finished product looked amazing, the red highlights quickly faded to brassy color (within 2 weeks) which my stylist said was "normal" for red tone highlights. The thought of paying over $170 every 2-3 weeks to keep the red highlights seemed ridiculous. I decided to go back to covering the gray hair myself with a slight twist. Since my stylist had already done the work of creating highlight sections and stripping the dark brown color, I added "highlights" myself my simply applying U-Color Mahogany (5.55). I apply the Mahogany (highlight) color all over about every 4-6 weeks (focusing on grays). Since my hair is naturally dark brown, the mahogany color is only noticeable on the lighter hair (any gray and the previous salon highlights). It is by far a cheaper longer-lasting fix and gives me the best of both worlds...highlights and gray coverage. PREFECT!!

            I like this hair dye because it doesn't irritate my scalp as much as other dyes. It's demi-permanent, so I don't expect it to stay on for very long, and it blends with my gray hairs once it starts to wear out instead of making a harsh color line in my hair.

                    I love the color and with short hair I get two color treatments. Unlike other kits once open must use or throw away. The color does not smell bad and minimal color loss over the next couple washes.
