i am blonde but it turned roots super brassy.. UGH !! lol

Quick results but very messy to use. Pros: It's made by a brand we all know and trust. It's so simple to use. It's quick. It took mere seconds to apply and blend. Like dry shampoo, it gives hair lift and texture. It covers gray hair very hair well. The scent was not overpowering and did not make it difficult to breathe while applying color to my hair. It's convenient to use. No need to make an appointment with your hairdresser. It can be purchased at drugstores, mass market retailers such as Walmart and Target, and at grocery stores. It is inexpensive. Each 2.0 oz can is good for several colorings depending on hair length, thickness and amount of gray hair. Cons: You must put a barrier on your skin to protect it from absorbing the color otherwise, it will stain it. I used olive oil but Vaseline or lotion would work as well. It can be as messy as coloring your hair with semi-permanent dye so you need to cover up just as if you're dying your hair because it will stain whatever it touches. This includes fabrics, tile, ceramic, wood, plastic, etc. Anything in your bathroom should be protected before use. You don't want to lose your security deposit or have to redo your bathroom. It can be drying to the hair and scalp and make it itchy. It left a film on my hair that stiffened which left it dry and it untouchable and took away the natural softness and sheen of healthy hair. I had to wash it the same night I wore it because I was afraid it would stain my sheets and pillowcases. It is only temporary and only lasts until the next time you shampoo your hair.

My New Staple This is my new go-to product in between colorings. This stuff is fantastic. It covers gray really well and goes on as easy as Hairspray. It doesn't feel to sticky and looks natural. It stays on until you shampoo it out. The first time I used it, once dry, I went home later that evening and slept on a white pillowcase and none of the color transferred. This will always be a staple in my cupboard. It is even small enough to be able to put in your purse. I love it, love it, love it!

works well This works really well, matches my hair color. The only thing that I don't care for is that it leaves a film on your hair, it will also transfer off onto your hands or clothing if you're not careful.
