Do you use "Colorsilk" hair coloring? ( shade 30 I have dark brown use to be natural color)

The reason I ask is because it is cheaper and it does the same job the expensive ones I guess it is the woman preference...Right?

Walgreens had a coupon for $1.99 limit 3... so I went for

  • Just so you know, store color has a higher ammonia level, so be careful not to color your whole head with it--just try the roots, and then put some shampoo in the color bottle when you are rinsing and it will refresh the color all over, then shampoo twice and condition!

  • I was just telling my sister that I paid WAY too much at the salon getting my hair colored. When I got home I was upset. I do just as good a job with the cheap color too. I asked the stylist if she thought she could give me the dark hair at the bottom in the back and roots and blond highlights on top. I asked her 3 times. She assured me she could. She was wrong. It still all came out red. The blond is even reddish. I could have done that on my own. I thought a professional could get the red out. Even the part I wanted dark brown came out red! I'm going back to the cheap Colorsilk.

  • I found it to be more drying than other home coloring's cheaper because you get those food service type gloves and a crappy conditioner.i like my Nice and Easy.

  • I've always used Colorsilk. I can afford pricier stuff, but why when Colorsilk works beautifully?!
