      • barely enough to cover thin shoulder length hair
      • Caramel brown = Ronald Mcdonald Orange
      • Color Misrepresented
      • Hair is now like straw after using this
      • Hair is very dull looking, lost my natural shine
      • Smells Bad

      Best Uses

      • None

      Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

      This is so different from the Clairol hair color I use to use. Dried my hair out, feels like straw. The color was SO off, my hair is almost orange, but I'm afraid to use something else on it, just praying this will wash out, if not I'll be cutting my hair very short once my hair starts to grow out and I have enough roots to cut this awful color off. Definitely misrepresented color !

              Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts:

              I have used the services of high end spas, and have supplemented with my own in-home coloring. I cannot believe how great my hair looks after using Natural Instincts 6A Light Ash Brown. I have gotten more compliments on the color and condition of my hair in the htree days since I colored than I ever have before. Gray coverage is not 100%, but that is not my primary concern -- ammonia free color is most important to me.

                      A:

                      Hi Kathy! Natural Instincts is considered a long lasting semi-permanent (aka demi-permanent) hair color. It is formulated to last up to 28 shampoos. However, if you choose a color darker than your natural hair color, or if your hair is more than 50% gray, or very porous, then it may last longer and may not wash out as expected. I hope this is helpful!

                  • Q:

                    Instructions say to apply to damp hair. I've never applied dye to damp hair. My question, how damp should my hair be?

                      Hi there! Great question! While most hair colorants are applied to dry hair, Natural Instincts is designed for use on damp hair. In this case, we mean towel-dried hair and not sopping wet or dripping. Good luck!

                  • Q:

                    Is the natural instincts semi permanent hair dye (dark brown) going to make my already black hair look super black or a subtle dark brown? Also, how long after a relaxer can I use this product?

                      A:

                      Hi Kris! The color will not lighten your black hair - it will leave it just as black. If you apply just to the roots, that will help you to transition to a lighter shade eventually (along with regular haircuts :)). We recommend that you wait one week and at least 1 shampoo after relaxing. I hope this is helpful!
