I mix 30% darkest blond with 70% dark brown to reduce the red and get healthy coverage of my gray hair. My natural color is medium brown. I'm at least 50% gray and this gives me about 3-4 weeks pretty good coverage for a healthy formula. This mix of colors works for me-the rep at the company helped me come up with it.
I use brown shade . Color comes out really good as desired but hair gets little dry after use . Also needs some tips on how to keep the color longer as it fades out after 3-4 wash.
I was tired of the conventional dyes irritating my face when I dyed my beard. I also hated that they use ammonia. This stuff is totally natural and the color in the hair looks more natural too! No skin irritation or chemical smells that give you a headache. A couple days after application the color had fully oxidized. Only drawback is that it takes an hour minimum to do the job. Longer if you have stubborn grays.
Hi, I have 20% of grey hair and decided to colour them with this dye which is exactly as my natural hair color is. I tried a few times following all the instructions and increased the time up to 3 hours. I was impressed each time seeing how shiny they became but there is still a little spot of greyish color persists right at my forehead line at the centre of the curlicue :( But I won’t give up and try wearing heat-activated hair cap next time… just do not know for how long to stay in it.
My scalp and hair loved this product. It did a pretty good job covering my stubborn grey hair as well.
color came out great, easy to mix & apply, plus it is non toxic for my body!
So thankful for Radico!
I followed the directions exactly and this made absolutely no difference in my hair color, just made my hair unbelievably tangled and difficult to brush even after shampooing twice.
I gave this brand a go because I recently discovered just how toxic and unsafe traditional hair coloring products really are, and unfortunately, I discovered this right after bleaching and dyeing my hair purple after years of not using any chemical processes on my hair. I always loved using vibrant hair color to express myself in the past, and I was excited to do so again, but now I'd found myself between colorings with no clear way to safely maintain my hair color. And sadly, after weeks of searching, it seems that the market for vibrant hair color that is also clean and non-toxic seems to be nonexistent.
I stumbled across Radico, and I loved the idea of using organic herbs to tint my hair instead, so I approached trying this dye out as an experiment. I didn't expect the color to turn out exactly as the swatch, but I was hopeful I'd get to continue maintaining at least one fun hair color by using this brand.
Prior using Radico last week, most of my chemically-processed color had faded, and my hair was mostly yellow from the bleach with some streaks of pink left from the faded dye. Before using Radico's dye, I also used the hair treatment powder to repair any lasting damage created from the chemical process so that my hair was starting from a healthier baseline.
When I used this violet dye last week, I read in the instructions that if your hair was previously bleached, you would probably need to do a second application since the first attempt would likely result in a greenish color, and it did. So, after the first application didn't produce the color I wanted, I waited for two days, washed my hair, and then did a second application. Both times, I let the dye sit for 90 min and applied heat 3x to activate the herbs and get the most out of the process.
It has been 5 days since the second dye application, and while it has darkened to some extent, the color is still nowhere near the color swatch shown on the package. The areas that were previously just bleached look more burgundy than violet, and the only faint purple that does show through is from the sections of my hair that still had a little pink left. The rest of my hair looks like a mix between my natural dark brunette color and soft black.
Overall, I knew that violet was a tall order from a purely herbal dye, and I'm not terribly impressed with the results. I knew that trying this color was a shot in the dark since I couldn't find any reviews of other people trying this particular color, but I'd be shocked if anyone else's results turned out to actually be violet. The color swatch feels misleading.
I may continue to use this brand for more natural coloring until the bleached areas of my hair have grown out because I love the intent and values that the brand stands for. But, to anyone who decides to give the violet a try, make sure to keep your expectations realistic. It's quite a bit of work for little payoff. I do hope that the company continues to improve their formula. Despite smelling like you have a barn on your head while it processes, I loved not having to worry that I was burning my scalp or seriously damaging my hair. I hope this review is helpful.
The color Not what I expect
Excellent results seems gentle to my fragile hair.
I love the product! It does a good job covering my grays and I especially love that it is organic and healthy for my hair.
I seem to be unable to access my subscription on the website, so I am hoping that that gets figured out soon so that I am able to make adjustments, if needed.
This is the best hair color I have ever used. So glad I found this organic color. I do it myself and keep it on 3 hours and thicker area on temples for covering gray. It looks so great and covers gray. I do have to leave on longer than 1 1/2 hours, so I put on and clean the house.
I used it to do a pre-coloring before applying a darker color, as that is the only way to actually make my hair be dark after the color treatment. It did the job just fine. My hair looked very red after having the henna on for two hours and then I rinsed it and applied the next color for another two hours and my hair looks completely dark now, which was the goal.
Dark Brown - Colour Me Organic - Certified Organic Hair Color
I love the result on my hair ; I have used it as a second application after a natural henna dye ; all my grey hair is perfectly covered and I like the shiny red highlights.
But this time product in new packaging was causing itching on my skin around neck and shoulders.
the old formulation worked wonderfully on my light-medium brown hair (about 25% gray). The new formulation gave my hair a distinct reddish cast that did NOT darken after a few days to brown. The reddish cast occurred throughout my hair, not just on the gray hair (though it was worse on the grayer areas). I followed all directions and applied the color for 90 minutes. The old formulation worked well on my hair. Both old and new formulations did condition my hair nicely.
Awesome hair color
After using and carefully following all the instructions I didn't see the desire results. It did cover my gray hair to black, but not dark brown.
Outstanding products. Have been using for 3 plus years.
It didn’t color my hair at all , I just wasted my money on this product . Please dnt make fool of people by saying it will cover grey hairs . If there is option for 0 star I would have given that
I buy it to cover my gray hair. I have tried 3 times. First - 1 hour, second-2 hours and third - 3 hours. It didn’t cover gray hair at all.
Positive things: my hair look very healthy and I feel it, people asked me what I did to my hair
I texted to customer center and they send me promo code for free purchase. So I order Darkest blonde. Will see if this time it works
My hair looks naturally black love it . Covers all the grays
None of my hairs color changed. It was waste of money and time
Before, I struggled with my vanity over using hair dye and my normally low-chemical products lifestyle, but Radico really is great! I have used the copper brown for a few years, and am playing with other colors now. The copper brown smells like herbs and coffee :) It is messy to apply, but I've never had it stain my skin or clothes. It's a little hard to rinse out so I use conditioner as a rinse. But it really does color well! I am probably 50% gray and the color really latches on to the roots. I reapply every three weeks as my roots start to grow out and you can tell the color is just starting to fade. I have short wavy hair and one box lasts me about 4 dyes. Hope this helps, definitely recommend!
