Turned into a ginger (not that theres anything wrong with gingers)
SO I was a happy customer, continuously colouring my hair every 5/6 weeks with the Romantic Brown when the last two times using it, bleached my naturally dark brown hair into a dirty reddish/brown. I now have been to the hair dressers twice to colour match my roots to my ends and will NEVER use it again. Mt friend also noticed her hair turning a distinctly different colour when using another shade. Disappointing to say the very least.

Didn't change my hair colour
My hair is black and I tried to dye it to the colour of chocolate rush. It did not change at all. I reapplied it and it still did not work. I do not recommend it at all.

Colour didn’t stay in.
I coloured my hair 4 days ago and made sure to cover every surface. I washed it tonight so I left it in for 4 days. Most of the dye washed out tonight. I’m very disappointed as I spent a while doing it and was expecting something very different. I don’t think I’ll be buying this product again, definitely doesn’t last up to 8 weeks at all.

Not worth the money
Wasted my time and money on this product. I spent over twenty minutes deciding between this colour and black. Spent over an hour making sure I got every strand of hair and letting it settle in for it to wash the colour out straight away, in cold water!!

Did not cover grey as promised - Waste of my time and money - won't buy it ever again
Used this product for the first time on the weekend. "Perfect grey coverage" it says on the packet. Well, after following the instructions, it did not cover grey growth at all. I have sparkling, translucent grey regrowth. I now have to dye my hair again with a different brand product. Such a waste of money and waste of my time, not to mention more chemicals in my hair than necessary. Totally disappointed.

For those who are complaining that the colour fades too fast, always wash your hair in cool water. Hot water makes colour fade away very quickly. Do not wash your hair for 72 hours after you box dye so the colours can set in properly. If you are unhappy with your result, don't forget to look behind the boxes where it shows the final result from your natural hair colour. If your hair had already been previously dyed, use a hair colour remover because you can't just colour over colour. Use Schwarzkopf hair oils because it makes your hair really s...ilky smooth and makes the colour a bit more vibrant. I had natural black hair and box dyed my hair 'Dark Brown Allure' from the Schwarzkopf Brilliance selection. I didn't like how it turned out because it was too dark because of my black hair so I used a hair colour remover and it made my hair a copper like colour. I then used red passion straight after. It was a little bit of a dark red after dying it but the next day it brightened up a bit more and now its a lovely wine red colour!

Completely the wrong colour
I specifically bought this because it states that it works on dark hair. My hair is dark brown and the colour made my hair darker and in the light it is red!!! It is not purple at all. Feeling frustrated because it’s so dark now I’m not going to be able to use another colour or anything to fix it. Now I’ve read reviews and people say it fades to red? Not looking forward to that.

Turned my hair black/dark cherry, opposed to violet purple like the packaging suggests. Very subtle as well. I have dark brown hair and the packaging said it work on black hair so I thought it would still show up well, but it didn't. Turned the ends of my hair virtually black as well when I was wanting it to be lighter! Don't recommend unless you want a subtle dark cherry colour.
great hair dye, although fades quite quickly.
After dyeing my hair with this, the colour was a beautiful rich dark red, and faded into my dark brown roots nicely after they started growing out. However, the colour faded very quickly after the first few weeks, and turned into a weird orange colour with red highlights. Although the initial colour was perfect its just faded far too quickly.

Just what I wanted
I just used Chocolate Rush and I am very happy with it. It is not aggressively red, does not look purple in the sunlight and covered all my grey perfectly. I only wash my hair once a week so colors last a while. My hair feels great and the color washed right off my skin. My hair was previously a darker shade so the result was a bit darker than I was going for but this will change as I use it more and I certainly will.

Not good anymore
I have used this brand for years and used to recommend it to everyone but not anymore. I used it last month to cover grey regrowth and it started to burn my scalp but I stuck it out for 30 mins as advised. When I finished I noticed it has not taken in most of my grey areas! I was so disappointed. Anyway my daughter was dying her friends hair black (from blond) so I said try Schwarzkopf 8 wash. Again it didnt take! Whats happened to this company? I wont use them again.

The best for my hair.
I have been using this product (L60) for years because it comes out great on my very long and fine, originally med-dark brown hair. And I often receive compliments, even from hairdressers and such.
My hair comes out a tad darker than the picture on the box. But then again, my hair is naturally on the darker side, so it doesn't bother me.
So long as you use the correct after care hair products whilst washing your hair, the colour should certainly last longer than just a week or a month, as others are claiming on here. It doesn't wash out that ea...

Exactly as on the box - Love it
My hair was ash blonde and i wanted a change. Something darker not too dark with a hint/glow of red and this is what i got. I love it. I think the naming of chocolate you assume it will be brown .. Very happy will definately use again and again

I died my hair less then 3 weeks ago and only wash my hair 3 times a week. It has already started to wash out. My hair looks horrible now. I really don't want to dye my hair again but looks like I will have too. Stay away from this product I have had temporary colour last longer then this. Will go back to my preferred brand that I know lasts.

This product delivers disaster
I bought this shade based on the results shown in the package but my outcome was totally different: a flat, dull block of almost black. I called customer service to complain and seek resolution but they were unaccountable and unprofessional.

Brilliant colour if you look after your hair properly
My natural hair colour is light brown with greys. This colour is like a dark mulberry on my hair, but after about a month or so it fades to red.
I now use a keratin treatment and colour protect leave-in conditioner and the only reason I need to re-dye my hair is to cover the regrowth. It’s not as dark as freshly dyed, but it’s pretty good.

My brown hair is now red!!
I wish I had read the reviews 1st before buying, I just wanted a purple hair dye that I could use in my medium-dark brown hair without bleaching my hair first...
What I actually got was a red hair dye, a terrible smell that nearly made me throw up, and a terrible headache (that lasted all day).
I made my self last through the 30 minutes and I’m sure that by the time I got in the shower it would have been 40 minutes or close to it, as I was getting into the shower I sudden got very dizzy.
The chemical smell is just too strong.
At least it gets off your skin easy enough and luckily the reddish colour isn’t too bad on me, though I was be a lot happier if it was the dark purple I was after.
Faded very quickly.
I loved the colour when it was first done but it just washes out after a month or so. I was left with patchy and black here and there but it mostly all washed out!! I've used this brand multiple times but it keeps happening!
I will not be using this brand anymore especially for blue black!!
Do not recommend!
Not like it used to be
This product is nowhere as good as it used to be. Have used for years with good lasting colour and shine. Now it lasts about a week with no shine
SO, I brought this dye wanting red hair, assuming it was red as it stated PASSION RED. I dyed my hair PASSION RED and upon my discovery my hair is not passion red, but instead PEACH if I wanted some nasty butt peach hair I would have brought peach hair dye, but no I assumed red would be well I dunno red? Now I have to figure out how to fix crusty peach hair
Questions & Answers
Should the hair be washed prior to colouring
As no answer was supplied by Schwarzkopf I would give the company and products a minus 0
No! Do not wash your hair before application, this will make the colour wash out faster. It’s best to use the product on unwashed hair.
I’ve heard washing hair prior to coloring strips the hairs natural oils which helps protect it during the coloring process. I don’t unless there’s excess product build up.
I have dark brown hair but roots are quite white. Is this the right colour or what would you suggest?
