Most Helpful Positive Review First at home color- was so nervous. WORKED GREAT!
This was my first at home color. I have been battling with grays but wasn't happy with different stylist coloring jobs or price for not matching my color. I was so nervous to color myself but wanted to give it a shot and so happy I did. I have light brown hair and it's currently balayaged so I was nervous how the color would match up. I picked the 5.0 dark brown because I didn't want any red tint which is what I've been getting at the salon. It worked perfectly and to be honest I was so nervous it would be disastrous. I would recommend this to anyone with dark hair! And two applications!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for Blondes
Oh dear, this was bad. First off I'll say that this product is probably a good buy for brunettes, unfortunately I'm a blonde. My colorist was unable to reschedule my appointment due to a work schedule change, so I purchased the blonde shade of DP hue (it said blonde, and had a pleasantly yellow color on the box so I was sure it would turn my roots blonde). Nope. I ended up with two inches of dark brown roots against the rest of my light blonde hair. Hideous. Much darker than my own new growth that I was hoping to cover up. I have since tried to "fix" it with other products, and well, let's just say I'm avoiding mirrors these days. I feel it's my duty to warn that next gal out there thinking this would be a good option if she's in a pinch and can't get to her colorist for a while.

Instructions and related video are clear. The color was perfect. The kit works for two applications but I wish there were two color tubes rather than having to squeeze half of the product out.
Amazing product & must have!
Laura from Staten Island, NY
My friend and hair stylist recommended this to me. She's very busy so am only able to get balayage appts with her twice a year. This is the perfect rpot touch up for in between. Salon quality for a great price! Easy to use and blended beautifully with my hair color!

This root touch kits was easy to use for a newbie to dying like me. I bought the black for my dark brown/black hair, and have had visible, 1/4" to 1/2" white hairs around my face and sprinkled around my crown. The formula was nice and creamy, and easy to mix with the bowl and brush provided. I put a face cream close to hairline to prevent dying my face. Highly recommend using the gloves provided, otherwise you will risk dying your hands and followed instructions to dye my roots. I learned to keep my house warm while coloring my hair (thanks to my hair stylist) and wore the cap provided. Set my timer for 45 minutes and washed out the color. Voila! White hairs are gone. FYI, I have fine hair and haven't washed my hair for 2 days prior to coloring and it worked beyond well for me. DP Hue Black is a true black! I will be purchasing more to have on hand for covering roots between salon color appointments. This is a game changer!
I love this hair color

Covers my grey, makes my hair shiny and looks healthy

Awesome product! Use it regularly
This kit saves me sooooo much money!
Ela from Los Angeles
I have been going grey since 16! So my roots start to show within about 2 weeks after getting fresh color. I still see a professional hairstylist, but I use this to cover my visible grey in between visits.
Great long lasting color while minimizing damage to hair

Best do-it-yourself home hair dye kit
YUMYUMGIRL from Los Angeles
This kit is fantastic! So easy, fume-free, and covers grey roots perfectly! I first tried the gloss in medium blonde to see if that helped blend the grey roots into my blondish highlights but i needed more grey coverage around hairline and crown. The dark blonde root touch up worked great! I left the product with cap on for 48 minutes and it was perfect! Going on 3weeks now and it still has kept the greys at bay! Highly recommend this!
Love the product
Nurturer from Phoenix

Dave from Oregon
This touch up kit has been the best I have found for those in between times when I can't get to stylist.
Love this stuff
Allie from MA
Discovered this during quarantine. Saves me an extra 2 weeks before going to the salon! Use to go every 4 weeks and now go every 6. Also great when you can't get an appointment and have an event to go to. Love this stuff !
I would buy again - have 100 percent gray haur
Eileen from San Jose ca
Good product- if you have a lot of hair like me.. you get just one application. With three resistant hair, didn't completely cover- leave on for 1 hour plus instead of 45 minutes.
So easy and perfect coloring
Island gal from Seattle
So easy and the subtle but lasting coloring blends so well with my salmon color.
Jenny from New york
Looks completely natural and is super easy to apply. The best root coverage product I've ever used!
Saved me during pandemic, still using it!
Missy from San Francisco, CA
My hair was freshly highlighted just before lockdown last year, but inevitably my hair started to look like a hot mess a couple of months later. I have a dark blonde level 7 base to hide the grays, with neutral blonde highlights. Once I had an inch of medium brown roots with grays poking through I knew I had to do something but was too afraid of using a drugstore boxed touch-up kit and ruining my hair, so I tried the DPHue kit. Lucky for me I snagged a box in Dark Blonde before they were sold out! The color is a perfect match for my dark blonde base; I was scared because my hair really pulls red but when I tell you this turned out to be an exact match 😻 no red tones at all! No hot roots either. My roots look professionally colored. I left the color in for an hour since my grays are very resistant. I got complete gray coverage, which really surprised me.
The process is pretty easy; I mixed the whole tube of color with both packettes of developer, and I had enough color for the entire top of my head and the front sides where I have the most grays. I didn't bother with the back as I don't have many grays there. I did the front and hairline myself, and my husband helped me with the crown. Then I placed the plastic cap on my head, leaving the highlighted lengths out of it.
I still use this root touch-up kit in between salon appointments to save money. My hairstylist never has trouble coloring or highlighting over it! Hair services are extremely expensive in my area, so this helps so much. I hope they never stop making it!
Wish I could buy larger tubes of color.
Cathi from St. Paul, MN
Love the product and the ease of root touch up, but don't need the disposable gloves, cap, bowl, and brush. Would like to save in waste, cost, and disposal and just buy color tubes, like I used to.
Exactly what I needed!
Lyndsey from Fairfax, VA
I have light brown hair naturally, but like to use one to two shades darker when covering my grays. This was perfect for my hair! I used this medium brown root kit and light brown gloss. My hair looks fabulous! Like I just walked out of the salon.
Easy to use - kit comes with everything
Angie from Chicago
I've used this product for a year to touch up my roots between salon visits. It works great. Love that it comes with enough product for two uses. I am usually a 6 at the salon and use a medium brown.
Perfect Gentle Grey Coverage!
Jeana from New York
I love this Dark brown color! It's gentle and covered all my grey roots. I'm thrilled that it has NO ethanomoline - don't be fooled by so called "organic" or no ammonia, no peroxide hair color…. Ethonomoline made my hair fall out -
This hair dye is truly gentle - perfect!
I'm a customer for life!
Nikki from Kansas City MO
This is the best color I have ever used, period!! And I've used so many!! I will buy in advance in case it gets discontinued!!! There's nothing negative to say about this product, it's phenomenal!!!
Rachel from New York
I've been coloring my grays for years. Was using Coldwell up until recently and decided to try something new. At first I thought this product was good but once I started using it I noticed that there wasn't enough product to cover my whole head so I used both applications. Color lasted for a week and then it turned light brown. My hair color is black. I wouldn't recommend this product. Waste of time and money
Carrie from Connecticut
I have used this product several times. I highly recommend it!!!! It's perfect for the in between my hair appointment touch up. I asked my hairdresser if she could see any difference in her color vs dphue and she said there wasn't one. I cannot ensure that all of my roots are covered- hence my hairdresser and I need a cut. This product is one I will keep using time and time again! Thank you dphue for a great product!!!
First time user and I LOVE it.
Katie from Washington DC
Used the Dk Brn color which is a bit lighter than my natural color but blends very well Ease of use is paramount to me and this one was so easy to use and no mess, black blobs all over the floor! Also follow directions as this product is for approx 1/4" of gray growth and works well to cover that...not a complete color overhaul. Will buy again
My favorite root touch up
Ed from Waverly Pa
I use this so I don't need to go to my salon as often. Always works great to cover my grey.
