Did absolutely nothing

published

I usually use L’Oreal but couldn’t find a colour I liked so I bought this one. After leaving it on way over the time limit just to make sure it worked, I washed it out and my hair literally did not change colour. It didn’t even cover my regrowth. It was the first time I’d tried this brand and it was terrible. Never again

Does not cover greys....

published

This colour should be called Ruby Rush, not Chocolate Rush. It turned my hair red, not brown.
Greys were hit and miss, some came out dark, some turned hot pink and some still grey.....None brown though.
Came out much lighter than the sample colour on the box.
I'm looking for a new brand seeing as my usual colour has been discontinued.
I'll keep looking.
Lucky it's just my roots at the moment.....

Ashy glory

published

I had a completely different experience, layered this over brassy bleached hair with dark roots and it blended it into ashy perfection without turning purple. New holy grail for me. Really sad it didn't work for others my hair was quite processed to begin with however. Id recommend this as a strong toner for people with patchy/brassy platinum hair

Doesn’t cover greys!

published

I did read some similar reviews that this product doesn’t cover greys - however l ignored them because the product and the box states it covers greys! I have sparse greys and there is still grey flickering through my newly dyed hair! l do feel believe it’s good product if you don’t require grey coverage!

Literally didn't change my hair colour at all.

published

I have dark honey blonde hair and was hoping this would slightly darken and make my hair a little more cool toned. Used three boxes because my hair is long and thick, colour was dark on my hair while I left it for almost an hour. Washed it out and there is literally no change I can see, but it left damage. My hair feels horrible. $32 down the drain. Incredibly unhappy.

Great Packet dye

published

I haven't got much background information on this product, but i do advise this product to any consumer looking for quality hair dye. Follow the instructions correctly and you will have beautiful deep brown hair however, though the colour comes through amazingly and has shown no signs of extremely damage to my hair. I find that the re growth comes back a copper red/orange before the natural colour comes through. The dye is tinted red but the deep brown will stay the same for at least 7-10 weeks. (Very strong colour)

box looked great but my hair didnt change coor at a;;

published

The box looked great,applied product and waited to see the amazing result.Rinsed the dye out and there was a really pale color washout but my hair didnt change color at all,i did pre bleached with nordic blonde so cant understand why no change at all...

Doesn't cover greys.

published

Unfortunately have to agree with the other review. The colour is lovely and would be great if it covered my greys. Left on my grey roots for an additional 10 mins to instructions, and some is still grey, the rest an ugly light washed out brown. Will stick with my usual dye.

Live or Dye

published

I went from blonde to Red Passion. So the colour took really well, but I did have to use three boxes, due to the length and thickness of my hair. So I got mine on special at Coles $10ea. The colour was spectacular, my man loved it too. But it was high maintenance, because my hair had been blonde for so long, I had to keep re-colouring to keep that deep tone to it. Eventually I just looked like a carrot.

Annoyed

published

I recently dyed my hair purple and washed it out like the directions said and 3 days later I washed my hair again and it still comes out! So much for "permanent "

Turned my brown hair red!

published

Best I've used in months

published

I have been changing dyes for the last few months sticking to light brown colours , my roots always end up lighter no matter what, I follow instructions my natural hair is brown so it shouldnt be this hard , i was buying more expensive dyes thinking they would do a better job until today I decided to give this a go ,I chose it because it's richer I wanted mahogany , it's amazing I had light roots and a band of light brown under that and a bit darker ends , not any more my hair is evenly coloured and I love it , this colour is not to dark like you get with chocolate brown and has a red tint , it looks really nice , I have finally found my go to colour .

Constantly Leaches Does not stay in hair.

published

Nice colours But leaches out of hair. Washed throughly but still comes out when wet or dry. Even after a few weeks of washing stains & ruins pillows & towels even with dry hair! Not cheap. Very Disappointed!

Horrible

published

I've used this one quite a few times now. I don't know why I keep going back to it though. I've used the red passion one and it has made my hair orange at least twice now. The colour fades extremely quickly. Out of all the red hair dyes I have used this one is by far the worst. I would recommend something like loreal for red hair dye.

Was Dissappointed

published

After just 1 week the colour is starting to fall out already, I have long hair so I bought 2 to put into my hair it wasn't cheap to get, I haven't coloured my hair for a couple of years now, not really happy with it, I think I will try different product.

colour falling out after just 7 days

I used the violet colour (permanent) and it faded so quickly, in the first wash, and I followed the instructions, yes, I think it is just a bad brand

Terrible product

published

Did not work

published

I bought this dye and so did my friend and it did not change either of our hair colours at all. We followed the instructions perfectly and left it in for the designated amount of time. I am very disappointed in this product and was looking forward to a great hair-dying experience. Would not recommend.

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?
