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.

Used the Blue- Had just flat ironed my daughters hair so her hair was silky and shiny. I put this just on the ends of her dark brown hair for an ombre look. The color was very bold and showed up well, however it made the hair look very dull and extremely dry, like straw. The hair felt like I had put a bunch of hairsray on it. I let it dry for about 20-30 minutes. The color washed off my hands easily. Her hair really looked terrible after. Combing thru wash impossible on the parts that had color. Also, the color comes off on EVERYTHING it touches, every after drying.
Do not recommend.
Not wonderful, just okay
😀 from United States
The purple has great color. It showed up in my medium to dark brown hair but didn't stay. It was all flaky and rubbed off on everything.
Blondes - Avoid!

This does not wash out easily. I shampooed my hair 4 times and the green is still there. Even though it doesn't come out very well after shampooing multiple times, it still transfers onto my hands. It's very sticky and tangles my hair a lot.
I don't know how it is for other hair colors, but I would not recommend this to anyone with blonde hair.
With that being said, the green color was darker than the packaging implied but it was still green and did what it was meant to (other than washing out).
Vibrant color, would buy again
Jamie from San Antonio
My blonde boys used for a school spirit day, took about a week of washing to get out of their hair and a slight stain on their scalp lingered. Super fun, just make sure you don't have an important photo shoot coming up of you have light hair. Great quality and easy to use!
I continue to buy this product, love it!

I use it to highlight my brown hair. Everyone notices it. It looks like real highlighting was done. I always get compliments.
Dee from San Antonio
Makes hair feel corse and hard to brush. Color gets all over everything when your spraying it and it's stains clothes and sheets.
Absolutely terrible and misleading
Eric t from undisclosed
We used this on our 5 year old. It is NOT 1 day. This ruined her beautiful hair.
With all of the bad reviews I can't understand why this product is being sold
Also there is no * on the front of the bottle saying it could be more then one day
This is absolutely a case of mislabeling a product and hiding the real story but using the * on the back about it could take more then one day
pretty color but does not wash out of blonde hair
aloha from North Carolina
I have brown hair with blone highlights and it came out of the brown perfectly but I have washed my hair 7 times and it still is slightly pink!! it is very pretty so I recomend on brown or black hair. It is a little messy so dont wear nice clothes while appling. then you can rinse your hair then dry it and it should mess up your clothes. It is easy to clean up as long as you have a granite countertop.
Eva from Oklahoma
Well, I was in the mood to do something fun so I bought this going by the claim on the bottle that is lasts for 1 wash. I have naturally light blonde hair and used the blue color. It looked definitely very blue at first but the feeling of the hair is terrible. It felt sticky, coarse, and you can't run a brush through it. Also it does transfer on to things. So I hated the feeling of my hair so I showered. OOP hair still blue, still sticky, and still unmanageable. Oh and also yes every time I touch my hair, I get cute smurf hands. Awesome! I have now washed my hair 4 times and still have blue hair! Would not buy again.

It made my hair super knotty and the color didn't even show up.
I will buy this product again for sure.
April from Minnesota
It's fun for parties or when you just want to jazz your hair up without the damage. Big event comes up and you have roots go all out with this spray.
My mom took one of mine and is loving it as well. It's the color she always wanted. She is 80 years old.
NRZA from New York
I bought this spray because I trusted to the brand name " L'Oréal" but it was terrible
It was expected that the spray would dry and be wiped clean in the shower, but what happened was that the spray did not dry and stained the clothes.
It gives the hair a dry wood state and after washing the hair, it does not become clean and becomes sticky
Not a good product
Sad Mom of teen from Missouri
Yesterday, my 12 year old daughter wanted to try some hair color she got for her birthday. It took me a while (months after her b-day) to let her, with it being pink... but it did not impress either of us. After almost 2 hours, it would not dry. We keep the old towel over her shoulders, sitting on the floor and ended up just washing it out. Very disappointed, that she didn't get to enjoy for even 1 day.
Pretty and vibrant

I bought the purple which looks a little blue in some pictures but my hair is a dark brown and the color came out surprisingly bright and I loved it! The color does transfer on to clothes but it came out with just one wash and my the color also came out of my hair with one wash.
Buyers be warned...
BEACHTIME from undisclosed
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
Kabob from Poughkeepsie, NY
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.
Ruined my couch

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.
