I bought this to test for a temporary beard coloring. I've agreed to do a purple beard (over my gray) for a relay race, but don't want to keep it forever. I'll be spending 36 hours running different segments in the heat, and wanted something to stay, but not stay forever--and didn't want it all over me. I completely disregarded the guidance on the can for "highlights and hints", instead going for heavy full coverage. I've attached photos--one immediately after applying, one after running 6 miles in the mist and light rain, and one after 3 washes with clarifying shampoo and a 15 minute soak with 3% hydrogen peroxide. My beard dried pretty stiff, but that is likely because I put on a LOT all at once, rather than applying in light layers. It was also quite difficult to remove, again, likely because I went so heavy. It did shed--on everything, but really it wasn't all that bad. Considering how heavy I put it on, the collar of my running jacket only had a light amount of staining despite the rain. A kleenex could rub some off, but it wasn't noticeable to the effect. After the run, a soak with hot water didn't remove a bit--shampoo was required. This stuff is a win for me, no question. Now I just need to get the lighter purple to do streaks! One hint: soap and water does pretty good on skin, rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball does better!
Most Helpful Critical Review Avoid this product
I purchased this product as part of my Halloween costume and I LOVED the results. I have now since washed my hair 8 times, using strong clarifying shampoo, and I still have pink hair. I assumed this product would stain my costume (which it did) but didn't think it would take more than 8 washes to get out. It also stained my skin which was a disappointment. If you have any type of blond in your hair I would avoid.

The hair spray lasts a lot longer than it should, which isn't a problem except for the fact that it BLEEDS and TRANSFERS COLOR EVEN AFTER 1 WASHING! To get it to stop rubbing off on other surfaces, I had to use DAWN dishsoap!!!!! When it is in your hair it does look better that the other 1 wash hairsprays, and doesn't feel as crunchy. BUT the main problem with this product for me is that if my hair touches anything after being sprayed, EVEN AFTER IT HAS DRYED, it leaves an almost impossible to remove stain.
Great coverage on dark hair

I use this to add subtle highlights to my dark hair.
One time use
Dslebellot from Florida
I like the color I received but this is a one time use spray. I have thick hair and to truly get anything to show I had to spray a good amount on it. This product might work well for a thin/ low hair volume. I wouldn't recommend this to any of my thick hair volume women unless they want to buy 2 overly priced items.

Bought red for my son ruined my couch will return the blue I bought.
Beware! Save your lungs and hair
Eram15 from Texas
So I am a natural brunette who has over the years dyed my hair every color under the sun. After years of not touching it I decided to do a blonde section which took work to get it to a platinum blonde/white. I found this as a cheap way to add color to my look without further commitment, thinking nothing of it, I used this spray. Within minutes my lungs were burning so badly, I couldn't talk much or take a deep breath for 48 hours, it was terrifying and really sad that finding other people have this issue and theres no warning label. It also makes your hair feel awful, damaged and fragile. Will never use this again
it worked but did NOT wash out
ali from harrisburg pa
I used it for my halloween costume, the can said comes out with one wash so I was expecting it to come out fairly easy. I do have very light blonde hair and the product did stain it. I've washed it 5 times now and there are still streaks of blue in it. In all the product did what it was supposed to (temporary-ish change my hair color) just be aware it may take more than one wash like advertised.
Stained My Hair
nikki from undisclosed
I used the blue Colorista one day hair makeup on Halloween this year for my costume. At the end of the night, I took a shower and washed my hair at least 10 times through with both shampoo and conditioner. There was still blue in my hair. The next day I did the same and there was STILL blue in my hair. It stained my hair, and the so called one day hair makeup did not wash out of my hair for THREE DAYS. I also had to STRIP my hair to get the last of it out on the third day. Do not recommend in the slightest.

Blue hair for Halloween
Pigmented but MESSY
Morgan from New Orleans
This hair color is definitely pigmented enough to show up on ANY hair color. My hair is black and this pink easily showed up. The spray, however, is extremely messy in the fact that it is SUPER sticky. Even after letting it dry, if you touch it, it will stain your hands and clothes. It also did not wash out easily; after 5 shampoos, this color is still stuck to my scalp. I think there are more manageable products on the market.
I will use this product again.
Ms V from Upper Chichester PA
It's amazing how it transformed my look for Halloween.
Please give me some recommendations
brianna from Texas
What are some recommendations for shampoos to wash out the color? I haven't tried it yet because of these reviews, so can I get some recommendations.
Color No No from OH
My daughter got the intended result of vibrant color for Halloween but she also got an unintended result: color that will not wash out!!!! She has washed her hair 12+ times and cannot get the color out. Off to the salon we go.
This product destroys your hair
Allison from Massachusetts
I used the pink 1-day spray after styling my hair and it actually looked decent. It came off on everything and left my hair stiff, but that's to be expected with a spray dye.
However, my blonde hair is still stained pink after 5 washes. I couldn't even brush through it after the first wash. Even after heavily washing and conditioning several times, my hair still feels slightly stiff to the touch.
Just buy a wig or try a different product. It's not worth it.
Great color for a day
Mom of Queen Barb from Texas
Great color came right out after one wash
I have purchased this product multiple times.
Jones from Mississippi
Easy to use. Color is great. Washes right out when you want it to.
Great color! Horrible to remove!
jaa17 from San Tan Valley, AZ
I tried this out for Halloween, and I was shocked that the blue was so vibrant on my medium brown hair! The color was super fun!
But removing it was IMPOSSIBLE! My hair felt so dry, so that made it hard to work with. And I had to shampoo 4 times to get most of the color out. It's still not completely removed. Go with an actual dye or some other method. That's what I plan on doing next time.
TOXIC, COULD NOT STOP COUGHING!
lyn19 from miami
I bought this as a part of a Halloween costume for me and my little sister and minutes later I started coughing uncontrollably and felt like I couldn't breathe. Thank God I didn't use it on my sister because I as an adult almost felt like I had to go to the hospital. the only reason I didn't was because of this covid situation. Now many hours later, every time I take a deep breath I start coughing uncontrollably again. It is really disappointing and truly concerning that they are selling this product at all and that there are little to no warnings at all regarding how toxic it is as it is a product that might appeal to kids. I would not want any children this product or any person at all. The product does its job, but what good is that if its going to intoxicate you.
I'd rate this 0 stars if I could
rosie1309 from Auckland, NZ
This is by far the worst temporary hair-colouring product I have ever used. (For reference, I have dark brown to blonde ombre hair.) It took twenty minutes just to get an even colour throughout my hair and the second you spray it on it's impossible to brush through without pulling out and damaging your hair. It stains your skin terribly which is hard to avoid because this spray gets everywhere, it even gets in your nose if you breathe near it. My hair is currently a knotted and fragile mess after spending 30 minutes trying to wash out the spray and using a hair conditioning treatment TWICE. Please do not buy this product.
Definitely wouldn't use again.
SCgirl from Manning, SC
After an hour I used it I noticed my throat felt extremely irritated and I couldn't breathe well. Ended up taking a warm shower and when I got out I noticed pink stuff coming out my nose. (Pink is the color I used.) apparently while
I was using it I inhaled a bunch of it without realizing. It also gets on everything it touches and makes your hair feel sticky.
stained my hair and clothes
misdb018 from arkansas
please save your hair and do not buy this! this product hasn't came out after shampooing twice after only being in my hair for about 15 hours. after application it added a rough and stiff texture to my hair, almost as if i used way too much hairspray. it became matted and uneasy to brush through. since my hair length is passed my shoulders and brushed against them most of the night, it stained my clothes where my hair was and didn't come off after washing them. every time i touched my hair the product came off all over my fingers and underneath my nails.
I will buy this again and again
Stace from Cortland NY
I wish they'd come out with a box color that is permanent just like this color!
Stonefoxx50 from Texas
I have jet black hair and I am transitioning to a lighter color due to my greys. I got some reddish copper highlights but I also have a blonde patch of hair buy my neck. So when I pick my hair up in a messy bun you see the blonde. So I sprayed this color on and gave myself extra gold highlights and it looked super pretty n it was shiny. Love the product and it washed out the next day.
Hattie from Denver, Colorado
Every time I tough it the dye comes off on my fingers and never fully dries, which I guess makes sense. My hair is very dry and a weird texture.
Spray away the yellow
EvainWDM from West Des Moines, Iowa
Love the silver and sometimes I throw in a spray of the purple color. It all washes out and does not transfer or rub off on anything.
I would NOT buy this product
Bay from Virginia
Although this product produced beautiful color, it was a MESS! .. it left my hair with the worst texture. It is essentially like spray painting your hair. Not even worth it for a day's wear, I showered immediately after trying it because I could not touch my hair without getting purple on my hands (even after letting it dry)
