    Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

    I've used Natural Instincts for a few years now. I like the color selection and use two boxes for my shoulder length Sisterlocks about every 6 weeks or so. The warm color choices (especially the brown auburns) are quite lovely. It is pleasant smelling and doesn't appear to be too harsh on my cuticle and scalp. It is a temporary color and I recognize it doesn't last. But, I wish the pigments lasted longer than 8-10 shampoos. I cleanse my scalp and hair with conditioner rather than harsh shampoos. But, the color rarely lasts beyond 10 shampoos. I can see the grays start popping through quite soon. I've learned to manage my expectations.

    Been using Natural Instints for about 10 years. Just tried a new color this time- I LOVE it!
    However, as a semi-perm color, it does not last. Wish they would offer a tocuh up kits for the greys that pop up in one week.

      inexpensive, just gives enough spark to color without really changing it (if you choose a color close to your own)

        I love that this is gentle on your hair and really affordable.. Just wish there was a tad bit more color options and also more color per box.

        New formula = poor results

        Cons

        • Too red

        Best Uses

          Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

          I have been using this product for years and never had an issue until they changed the formula (along with the box which was very confusing). Ever since then, no matter what color I use, my hair ends up with a red tint. I started out with the reds, then moved to the browns. The original formula was fine - no red with the browns. This new formula is RED RED RED. I've been using brown every time I dye and I continue to get red. Also, the color on the bottom of my hair is much darker than the top, even though I never experienced that problem with the old formula. It also fades much too fast. Bring back the old formula!

          I love the demi-perm. It looks more natural as it wears out. No color streak as new growth comes in. This product is easy to use and gentle on my hair. I LOVE how soft and shiny my hair is after.

            I've used this brand, but other colors. This was to be a blond colorant, but produced medium brown results.
