Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

I just found this in my local Ulta. I bought 2 different colors, glad I did. The only negative I can find is that the colors are more intense than shown on the box. Be aware that there are 2 full applications in the box, so it is economical as well. I purchased 6.43 Dark Copper Brown and 6.32 Golden Brown. I ended up using the 6.32 product. It matched my current color very well. My hair is 90% stubborn gray and this did the best job of covering the gray of any product I have used, including the ones which are advertised as 'better than salon color'. I had resorted to going to another chain beauty supply (rhymes with alley) and buying color and 20 Volume to get the gray covered. That was fairly expensive and messy for sure. I went back to Ulta yesterday and exchanged the Dark Copper Brown formula as I hadn't opened the box for another 6.32. It's on sale right now and I am truly hoping that Ulta is not discontinuing this brand in their stores (that usually happens to me), I bought 2 more at the store yesterday and am ordering 3 online now-hope that lasts me! OH, for beginners-take their advice and dispense all there packets into a bowl the first time you use it-makes the mixing so much easier. I didn't, and I suspect that until you are comfortable with the way this dispenses it will seem too messy to use. I also appreciate the packaging-just 2 pairs of glove, 6 packets and a small brush-I hate waste and all the 'foolproof' stuff that comes in other brands.

Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

This color is just way too dark. I did a strand test ( I usually do) and it seems fine. But on the whole head the golden blond came out dark brown... darker than my hair which is light brown (with some grey). Will return additional boxes.
It was gentle and covered greys well, so I wonder if I tried pearl blond, maybe it would come out light brown? Not sure I am willing to risk it

          I love this product for my hair. It gives it body, doesn't have any ammonia smell like the others. Simple to use so it's a all-in-all good product for me. I never had trouble finding this item in the Ulta store in AR but now I live in FL and couldn't find it in your Brandon store which is a bummer otherwise I would have given it five stars.

              I used the 'squeeze it into a bowl and use the brush' method, and really liked the ease of application and lack of messiness. The scent is pleasant, the product rinses out of my hair completely, the shampoo and conditioner are both great! I just did it three days ago, and my hair looks and feels very natural and good.

                  The gel texture goes really far for covering hair. It washes off skin very well too. Plus, smells much better than most hair colors.
