          make sure you get a good "mix" of product; My packets don't always open well, so I cut a little below the line to make sure I'm getting all 3 parts of the color on my hair.

          Two for the price of one. You get two separate kits for the price of one of the other brands. It did make my hair a bit straw like. But I deep condition after coloring anyway. Plus, it is coupon friendly, making it an even better deal.

            Best if used with coloring brush instead of shampoo in...great color and shine. Love getting two applications for the price of one.

                I've been using Red Cayenne for over a year now- and I will never change hair color brands again! I LOVE IT. I too, had a problem with dryness initially and I called the product hotline on the box. They were very responsive and it turns out- unlike other colors, you MUST shampoo your hair after you color. Rinsing alone will not get the color out. That is why some people feel dryness. I use the shampoo, conditioner and masque that come in the new boxes and I love those too!

                    I bought this hair dye becus of previous reviews i read online. The product itself is so weird becus of the 3 different gels in seperate packets. I just squeezed all three gels into a bowl, mixed it around, and applied it that way. (So much easier)
                    The texture of this dye is great! Its like a gelly and it didnt smell at all compared to other dyes ive used. BUT once you rinse it out and start combing your hair...its SUPER dry and straw like. I even deep conditioned my hair with the macadamia repair mask. I wouldnt personally use this dye again but it wasnt too bad.

                      Comments about Umberto U Color Italian Demi Color Kit:

                      I've used many different at-home hair coloring products, and I was interested to try this "snip-squeeze-smoosh" method of application to see how easy and convenient it really was. First, when I cut along the dotted line on the pouches, I could see that not all 3 were totally open, so I had to cut lower. Second, it's messy and hard to keep it from dripping onto your face, clothes, etc. Third, I could tell that not all three pouches were dispersing their respective products at the same time, so I had to really make sure that I blended it all throughout my hair so it all mixed together.

                      It rinsed out fairly easily, but the color was a lot darker than I had anticipated. However, that's the case with many hair colors and it will likely lighten when I wash it (I didn't shampoo, just rinsed).

                      At the moment I'm ambivalent about whether or not to buy it again--if I do, I will likely use a more controlled method of application.

                          I purchased Umberto's Italian Demi Color Kit in Red Cayenne and was very happy with the results. I was nervous about it at first because even though I hadn't dyed my hair in a long time, my roots were a slightly different color than the rest of my hair, and other demi color dyes I've used in the past resulted in uneven color. This was not the case with Umberto. My hair came out a rich shade of red and the color was completely even from roots to ends. Plus, the kit came with an applicator brush which made it even easier to apply, and the box comes with two applications, which means I have another sachet packet to use for next time. This is a wonderful product at a great value.
