      This product lasted long and did not fade. I likes the feel and look of my hair after coloring. It withstand workouts and covered those annoying hairline gray hairs with the first coloring.

              I usually go to a salon and get my hair done. Have actually never colored my own hair. Decided to try it myself, figured what's the worse that can happen?
              Very simple to use. I mixed in a bowl and used just one packet. Came out very close to salon quality. Will defiantly use again.

              I bought this to try to match my the rest of my hair to my roots while growing out a permanent color. I figured this is temporary so it's less harsh and just makes the growing out process easier. I have very dark hair and used medium dark brown. It did come our very dark, almost black. But it's a beautiful color and looks better than my salon color. It's my third time using this and it does gradually wash out over time. I would say it lasts 2 months. Then I just recolor which is easy because the box has 2 uses.

                            My hair grows so quickly that I finally decided that I was either going to: A) go broke paying my hairstylist to color my hair every 6 weeks, or B) color it myself. Needless to say, I chose the latter. After reading many, many reviews on several websites, I settled on U-Color. That was about three years ago, and I have been coloring it myself ever since. The price is so reasonable that I can color my hair once a month, which enables me to keep up with the roots AND the ever-increasing number of grays.

                            My hair is naturally reddish-light brown, but ever since I've been coloring my hair I've emphasized the red to complement my skin and freckles. The Light Copper Gold is PERFECT. The color is so natural-looking and vibrant that I am often asked for a referral to my colorist. Even my hair stylist (who is a master colorist) told me that I am his only client whose at-home work he actually approves of. This stuff is really that good!

                            I have very thick straight hair, and if it's any longer than shoulder-length (which it usually is) I have to use both sets of packets in the box. I mix one set of packets in an applicator bottle and do the roots all over my head with the applicator bottle, following up with the brush to spread out the color. When I'm finished with the roots I mix the second set of packets in a bowl and apply that to the middle and ends of my hair with the brush. I let it sit for about 45 minutes from when I got started, which means that the roots get more time than the ends. This works out well, though, because the ends just need a little refresher since I just colored them a month ago. Even though this is demi color and even though I wash my hair almost every day, it does not fade out on me.

                            A couple of months ago I decided to switch it up and go for a darker color, with the darker being more brunette than red. (I was going for the look that Emma Stone had in the movie Superbad, where the whole time I was trying to figure out if she was a brunette or a redhead.) Anyway, I mixed in one tablespoon of the Dark Copper Brown to each set of packets of the Light Copper Gold, and it was perfect, if a bit more subtle than I had envisioned. The next time I did it, I went a little darker, using two tablespoons of the darker shade per each packet of the lighter shade. This time, I achieved the exact look I was going for. I am very happy with it.

                            I seriously do not know what I'll do if this product is ever discontinued!

                              My hair won't take permanent dye, so demi is the only kind of dye I can use. I found this after weeks of searching for a demi permanent (and refusing to pay my colorist $150 every 8 weeks) and I am in love. I have dark brown hair and dye it the natural black color. I love this for two reasons: first, the color is accurate and holds well to my hair (I don't know how long a demi is supposed to stay in, but this color will stay in my hair for months without needing a touch up. It doesn't fade, on me at least). Secondly, I love the fact that there are two applications in one box instead of one. My hair is long (down to my waist) and I always have to buy 2-3 boxes of anything else just to get enough to dye my hair one time. Not anymore!
