I'm a natural medium brown, and have just recently started dying my hair blonde. It had been about 2 or 3 months since my hair was colored, and it was starting to look faded and dull. I've been using Natural Instincts for years, and decided to purchase the new Natural Instincts Creme. Amazing results!! Still the same shade, my hair is brighter, softer, and absolutely gorgeous. The dull blonde I began with was suddenly golden and bright. I'm a fan of slightly darker roots, and was glad to see that they stayed that way. If you're looking to change the color of your hair, this isn't the product for you. However, if your hair simply needs a pick me up, this is definitely the way to go :)
This color is perfect for us medium natural blondes. Not too golden. Not too dark. Enough color to cover the gray but left my hair a nice natural looking blonde.
I also love the new creme formula. Because you put on your dry hair, it's like eliminating an entire step. I have shoulder length hair and I was afraid there might not be enough to cover, but it did with ease.
My only objection is that I have a hard time finding in the store. When I see it...I buy several.
Fabulous new product and color.
I've been using the light blonde Natural Instincts shade & wanted to try something a little darker, but not in ash tones, to cover grey. This product was different than what I was used to, as it involved a tube cream rather than liquid as one of the mixers - the tube was a little harder to get all the product out, but it mixed quickly. This product is applied to dry hair & though it was harder to keep my hair in place, I could tell which part was covered by how wet it was. The initial color was a bit frightening, because it was much more orange than I'm used to. However, I was pleased with the end-result color, a very honey-like shade & it did cover grey better than the lightest blonde. I used a lot of the conditioner & left it on quite a while - once I washed it all out, my hair was soft & untangled very easily.
