Most Helpful Positive Review YESSSSSSSSSSSSS
I have been using this brand for about a year now, so I am SO EXCITED this is at Ulta (I just bought some and I'm bummed I didn't see this was on Ulta, missed out on those points...next time though!) I use the Light Pink and I love it so much. It's best to apply it through your hair like a normal dye to make sure the hair is completely saturated and you get an even coverage, but it's really worth it. It takes about 3-4 washes for it to come out completely. I apply it on bleached hair (about a level 8-10) This stuff also smells amazing and makes my hair feel silky smooth after I use it.
I have also used the purple and that one, for some reason, takes MONTHS to completely come out, so be aware. It might just be it clings to my hair more in some places, but I don't have that issue with the pink or other hair dyes I have used in the past. The purple does fade to a nice silverish color, but I also noticed it left a blue/green SLIGHT tint to my hair after it fully washed out.
I have an attached image of the Light Pink and Purple. Light Pink is after 1 application, and the Purple is one application but with I believe 1 one wash before the photo was taken.
Most Helpful Critical Review Silver Blue Is Not Good
I got this in Silver Blue in the hopes of maintaining my artificial grey, since it fades fast no matter what. First, I expected the bottle to be bigger, since it's supposedly 12 oz. I know there's a volume difference between cylinders and cubes because of the angles but it still feels like a ripoff to pay this much for such a small bottle. Second, it smells DISGUSTING. This the same kind of scent as "shower fresh" deodorant. I'm pretty sure they were going for "clean" but it smells like the laundry aisle in a grocery store or that cheap shampoo they use at walk-in salons and I hate it. Third, it doesn't work. The bottle says the color builds with repeated washes and it shows a pic of 1 wash vs more, but I saw no color difference and I tried it multiple times in a row. The color out of the bottle is a dark grey, obviously very diluted and not much blue tone, especially compared to other temp greys like Manic Panic Blue Steel (result: neutral grey, fades fast, no staining) or Ion Shark Blue (result: smoky blue grey, stains hair very pale pastel blue). This doesn't stain your hands if you use it without gloves, but that means it isn't very pigmented and it doesn't stick well to wet hair. It might work better on dry hair if you leave it for like an hour or 2, but then it's just another temp dye and it's way too overpriced if that's all it is. The non-pastels probably work better, but you need processed hair for them to stick and you need a lighter starting base for lighter colors (examples: Purple will not make brown hair bright purple, Rose Gold will not make orange hair pink). If you want to dye your hair at home, learn some color theory. :)

I have been using Overtone for years but then I switched colors and came across this AMAZING clenditioner at my local Ulta. I applied it all over on dry (oily) hair and let it absorb for about 30 mins before washing out. Not only did it brighten my copper tones but it also added beautiful dimension to my hue. It left my hair bright, silky, and smelling good. I will continue to stock up on this product and look forward to trying other colors when I change my hair next time. Highly recommend!!
I would never buy again!!!!!
Nikki from CA
I was excited to buy this it said it would leave ur hair soft and shiny! But instead it left it limp, flat, dull, and greasy! No color change what so ever and u have to use a lot of this product if ur hair is long! So what spend over 40 bucks for 1 use when u can buy I liter of color obsessed blue shampoo by biolagde and get many uses for like 7 bucks more! An it works better! So I'm am very upset and will never buy or try any other color In this line again! 😞
Onyx-I would give it 0 stars if I could
Aly from Texas
I've tried a few color depositing shampoos/conditioners and this one is the worst. My hair is colored dark blue (originally black, but it faded) and my roots are a dark blonde.
Ive tried this several times in several different ways. It never deposits any color. I even tried leaving it on for nearly an hour and no color, not even on my lighter roots.
Vibrant color on darker hair—Merlot
Erin from Ohio
My hair is medium brown, but the ends are more of a medium/dark blonde. Using the shade merlot, I sectioned my hair out and applied it the way I would actual hair dye in dry hair. Then I put my hair in a disposable conditioning cap followed by a microfiber turban towel, then let it sit for about 1.5 hours. I rinsed well and followed up with a sulfate-free shampoo (mostly to prevent staining my towels).
The color came out so vivid, especially when you consider that I didn't bleach first, the ends look great AND you can see the color at the roots. I'm really happy how it came out, it's a very pretty auburn shade. My hair also feels really soft and it's visibly more shiny. I realize that the directions don't suggest you do it for that long and others might not be willing to wait, but I'm happy with it.
LOVE the Keracolor line
Gioia from USA
Great color. Conditions very well
Leaving hair silky and shiny.
Pleased with Purchase
Holly from Omaha, NE
I used this on my virgin hair to improve my hair color, not change it, and I'm very happy with the results. I used mocha, applied it to dry hair & left it in for 45 minutes before rinsing. I repeated a couple of days later for a result that is very satisfying. The application process was a little tricky & messy, but was worth it. I will purchase this product again.
It burned my skin!
ZJ from Chicago
Burned my skin off... its been a few weeks ans it has not healed.
Nice red color
Yuli from Fort Myers, FL
Use once a week to keep hair color vibrant.
kelsey from windermere
love love love I am so happy I discovered this product. I had barbie blonde hair for 2018-jan 2020 and I got tired of the expensive salon visits so went back to my natural ashy brunette, however only a few washes in i get this hideous orange brass color and have to keep going back to the salon as nauseum. This took out all the brassiness and gave me an even toned natural looking color that looks very much like my natural color. I am so happy with it! I'll be using this weekly as a color deposit. Love it. Not to mention of course saving all that money from salon visits.
Hollywood from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
It adds spotty color. Does not deposit the color evenly at all. Returned product to the store. Big disappointment.
Yes I would buy this again
Marrideth from Lawton, Oklahoma
Doesn't leave red on hands and if hair is blonde leave a vibrant red color darker hair a deep red
Not impressed with this product.
Macygal1 from West Bloomfield, MI
I probably will not be buying this again.
Not that great
Sassy from WV
It's less messy to use than oVertone but that's about it. I used it 3 times and each time I left it on for an hour. Each time there was no change. I color my hair regularly and it didn't freshen my color at all or even tint my roots. At least it made my hair feel clean.
Very little color
Peachrose from Seattle, WA
I returned this product because it laid down very little color even after three treatments. I ended up buying the hot pink color and had better results after the first treatment.
Product is awesome
Sharon from Topeka
It works like it's supposed to. Awesome product. Packaging not so much. Pump would not work so have to open it completely to use.
tina from new hartford ny
awesome alternative to coloring my hair
It really works!
Nora from Detriot, Michigan
I used to get my hair balayaged consistently and recently went back to my root color Dark brown. I use this product in between salon visits to cover up the red hues. I was a bit skeptical but the color lasts for a solid 2+ weeks. I made the mistake of not wearing gloves when applying the color onyx to my hair and it stained my hands black for a solid 24 hours. I like how its non-greasy it gently cleanses while depositing color. If you are looking to go darker or try a crazy color this is the product to use. For optimal results apply to dry hair.
Love this product
Trish from Orlando
I dyed my hair and hair extensions with this product absolutely love it, works great and makes my hair really wonderful, I went to the salon to get my hair and hair extensions dyed, I wanted a ginger color and when I left the salon I had hot topic red hair it was awful, they next day I bought Color oops and got all the color off my hair and hair extensions which turned my hair blonde, (I natural have dark brown hair) I put this in my hair for 20 min and it turned out so good and my hair smelled great, I will always use this now! So glad I found it!
I love the platinum and finally found something that works!
Sunny1212 from annapolis md
I have tried purple shampoos and felt they left my blonde highlights too grey. I was very happy with the platinum and it smells great! I added in after my hair was wet but I cant wait to try it when it is dry. I really felt like I just came home from the salon and I havent had my hair highlighted in almonst 3 months! Its eactly what I have been searching for and I am excited I found this product!
beautylover from Oregon
I order shade Onyx and it doesn't do a single thing. I've tried it on dry hair (bottle said it would give a more intense result), nothing happened. I've tried it in the shower, out of the shower on damp hair, absolutely no results besides my skin being badly stained. I color my hair black (naturally very dark brown) so I'm not looking for anything drastic, just something to help with slight fading but it won't even do that no matter how long I leave it in for. Very disappointed.
Awesome for Colored hair
Veronica from New York
I dyed the under layer of my hair blue and it's great for re-dyeing and refreshing the color. It also sort of tones my brown hair into less brassy and a more cool brown. I love it. One wash lasts for about a week and I can definitely see myself using this for a while just to make my color last.
Did not disappoint-five stars
Leanne from MI, SC
Absolutely loved this product! I've been using the purple shampoo and I definitely see this product as a supplement to the purple shampoo routine to upkeep my blonde hair. It made my hair softer and brighter. Highly recommend
Ana from Mission TX
So far I had used 3 times and it is great , this stuff works
Amazing for blondes who went brunette
Audrey from Chicago
I colored my hair a dark reddish brown after having bleached silver hair for years. My hair is definitely over processed (lol), so in the light I could still see the blonde peeking through where the color wasn't holding well. After one wash using espresso, my brown hair is opaque and so rich and pretty. I use this more as a conditioner, and it leaves my hair very soft and light. No gross residues like other depositing shampoos/conditioners I've used.
Intense Color Payoff
Teri from Florida
I used the copper Keracolor to brighten up my hair that was looking a bit too blonde in the highlighted areas. I asked the Ulta stylist about this product and was told it would be a subtle color. Decided for the money, I'd give it a try to see if it would allow me not to go to the salon as quickly as I normally need to. Hopped in the shower, applied the product and left it in about seven minutes, rinsed it out and just put my hair up in a bun to let it dry a bit before using a blow dryer. This stuff has A LOT of color! Let's say I am no longer worried about my highlights looking too blonde! It didn't do much for my roots or gray hairs, but definitely gave a copper pop of color to my hair ~ especially the lighter portions.
