  • i love garnier fructis hair color. my hair is naturally dark brown, almost black. i found a shade that matches my natural hair color almost to a T, and dye it every so many months to hide the grays. for the first few weeks after dyeing, my hair is very smooth/shiny.

  • hey girl.. my mom is a cosmetologist and we both use color silk hair color.. it about $3 at walmart and it works great.. it covers greys and the color lasts for about 3 months.. which then u will have new-growth anyway and it will be time to recolor.. and the conditioner that comes with it is great.. its salon quality.. also why pay more when u honestly get the same results.. hope this helps :)

  • I like Herbal Essence ... I use the Black Stilleto on my hair. I love it. Of course, when I can't afford it, I buy Color Silk. Both seem to be gentle on my hair and they don't have that icky smell.

  • I use Revlon products, clairol tends to dry your hair out and so does Feria
