I have tried light brown, dark brown, brown, and ash brown with varying degrees of success. My hair is naturally coarse, dark brown with cool undertones and gray mainly throughout my crown and hairline. I was hoping the Radico color would tint my gray hair blonde and give an overall deeper, healthier tone to the rest of my hair especially my dry ends. The dark brown color is closest to my natural tone but starts off very dark in the beginning which takes some getting used to! It appears almost black and takes several washes to completely remove the leftover color and henna odor. The lighter shades of brown have been completely hit or miss- a few times after color there were no results or minimal blonde tinting/ gray coverage effects. It was a lot of effort applying all of the color to my hair and sitting with it on my thick head of hair with very little payoff which was quite disappointing! All and all, I’ve had very inconsistent results. I was hoping this color would be the answer to my search for a truly natural method to conceal/blend my gray hair and avoid being committed to chemical color forever.. but I’m not convinced this color is paying off unfortunately.
Regardless of the fact that it’s non toxic, and that it did not irritate my scalp and dvive me dry flakes like all the other dyes (even the ones so-called natural, it’s the best dye job I’ve ever had.
My (thin) hair came out dyed brown, glossy, thicker and fuller, and its texture is light and less dry than any other dye I’ve tried so far, including in a salon.
I wanted to dye over previously dyed hair that was brassy and too red, and cover grays so I mixed 50% Brown and 50% Dark Brown, and the result is a medium chestnut brown, slightly darker than my natural color but I’m sure it will lighten up over time.
After years of searching for a PPD free,hair dye, I am so happy to have found this one! I can safely use it for the rest of my life.
Oh and another plus, it doesn’t dye my skin or stain my bathroom countertop.
