I bought deep black from our local store as I have done for many years now and as my hair only takes 20 minutes at the most to drink in the colour I had it in for 45 minutes as I got busy with other things. To my disappointment it did not cover the grey it also lightened my hair so now I have to go to the hair dresser before Saturday and spend even more money prior to a party just so I can get the desired effect of black hair. I will never again use this my favourite product again.
Out of pocket and very angry.
Purchased in October 2020 for A$1,150.00.
I tried it first on a hair lock - thank god, it totally damaged my hair. Felt like a straw. Didn't change a color at all. I don't recommend this product at all. Avoid it.
We did my daughters hair tonight. There’s no real change in colour except it’s maybe blonder than ever? With a few pastel blue highlights in the ends. We left it longer than the recommended 30 mins probably closer to an hour. My hands though are a lovely light blue from washing it out.
Really disappointed in this product.
Spent 4 hours bleaching my hair then put the toner in. Turned my hair purple after keeping it in for 20 minutes as directed. Awful. Don't use it if you actually want silver hair, my hair was 1 tone away from white.
Such an.easy temporary colour change!
This hair dye is so easy to use,no mixing of dye needed, it didn't damage my hair at all and left it looking so shiny and vibrant. I used this hair dye 2 weeks ago and the colour is just fading out now. (I wash my hair every second day). I wasn't totally sure on what colour I wanted to permanently dye my hair so this was a great way to test a colour.
Purchased in July 2020 for A$3.00.
I used the natural brown shade (not given as an option for review) I purchased as a temporary cover for the grey while unable to visit the salon during COVID-19 restrictions. I used 2 packs left on for just over 1/2 hr. I have long just below the shoulder length hair. I’m very happy with the results at this stage. Would definitely purchase again between salon colours.
Disgusting! Did my hair bright green
First time use and I wash my hair ones a week, my hair was super dry like dehydrated so this is never a conditioner impossible to brush or straight my hair like that and leave me with the worse color green ever like baby green bright poo
And leave me feeling nauseous and sad desperate!
Better than my hairdresser’s expensive toner!
My hair extensions were getting brassy and I am trying to grow my highlights out so decided to try. One sachet plus some conditioner for 30 min- great result! Next time will use 2 sachets and leave 40 min
Good on grey!
I am 77 with pepper and salt hair. The first time I used it I left it on for 15 minutes. I was afraid the white in my hair would be blue. It was nice on the white bits but little effect on the darker bits. Second time I used it I covered my hair with glad wrap and left it for 30 mins. Perfect. Great steel colour all over blending white and darker bits. Very happy. I don't care how many washes it lasts.
Purchased in May 2020 at Optimal Pharmacy for A$5.49.
Great if you don't ever want your natural colour back.
This dye looks great for the first 3 washes. Bright, vibrant and fresh. BUT after 8 WEEKS I still have a pale blue/green colour left over. It hasn't washed out at all, it's left a gross, dirty water colour in my hair.
The colour is NOTHING like what's on the box. False advertising. Not enough product... insufficient for fine just-above shoulder length hair. I don't recommend at all. Waste of money. Avoid.
Exactly the result I wanted
I had blonde highlights professionally applied to my medium brown hair that turned very brassy. In sunlight they were bright red. I used 2 packets of Silver Toner on my shoulder length hair, left in for 30 minutes. The colour is a vivid bluish purple as it comes out of the sachet.
Love the result! My hair is now a cool brown colour that matches my plain brown roots and the highlights are now very subtle and definitely ashy rather than red in tone.
Super easy to apply, not too messy, didn't stain my skin. Not moisturising, you will need to ...apply conditioner afterwards. Unfortunately some of the colour appeared to wash out when I rinsed out my conditioner but the end result was still there. When dried, my hair felt as soft as it normally does. Will definitely repurchase to keep toning down the red as I grow it out.
Did not last
Colour mostly washed away in initial rinse. Left with slight pink tinge only when dried. Colour was left on for 25minutes (from end of application), hair was clean and light to medium blonde. Lucky it was a cheap product.
This product is terrible
I bought a nice natural brown hair dye and I put it in my hair and followed the instructions and it turned my hair orange, this product is terrible don’t buy it!!
Purchased in March 2020.
I used two packs on my already dyed hair (dark ash blonde 7N, I am a natural blonde 8- ish) and wow, left it in for 30 minutes and it came out fluorescent purple with pink highlights. Not the dark shimmery burgundy shown on the box. Two days in and the ends of my hair have washed out to a dull pink and the roots remain fluorescent purple. If i didnt like clown hair I dont know what id do!! Cant really go to work like this, but I strangely like it anyway. Will probably have to put a another box in or go a different dark brown over the top to hide it!! :/
Purchased in February 2020 at Woolies for A$7.00.
Bright clown orange not burgundy
I have dark blonde hair, but my hair came out a hideous unnatural vivid orange. I followed the instructions exactly. The image on the box was a lovely purple burgundy, with no hint of orange tones, so my hands shouldn't have stained orange and neither should my hair. It was so bad, I wouldn't go outside until I had fixed it. I won't be trying any of their other products.

Wrong colour, it's blue not green
I thought I would try this brands green, I don't think I will be buying it again any time soon.
I opened the packet, it's blue, I tried a small amount on the ends of my hair... still blue. If I wanted blue hair I would have purchased a blue dye.
It worked perfectly on my hair - no green tinge, no dry hair, just a beautiful cool grey/ash blonde - it's not quite like on the box, but I didn't expect it to be. I had blonde foils put in 2 weeks ago with a grey toner, but the toner doesn't last in my hair any longer than a few days and I can't afford to go back to the hairdressers every week - this does exactly the same thing and only costs $5 - love it!
It turned my hair patchy purple too!
I needed to use 2 packets on my shoulder length blonde/grey hair. I left it on for the full 30 minutes and got a big shock when I saw that my hair had come out a mauve/lilac colour. I don't really mind the colour and the product is fine - but I did get a shock as I did not expect silver toner to change my hair colour so much.
Perfect for my grey hair.
Left it on for 20 minutes. Couldn't be happier. I'll be using it again, purchased from Woolworths. I particularly like how it is not a permanent so no regrowth visible. Just a gentle fade. Will be buying again n again. Hope they don't discontinue this as I'd be devastated.
Questions & Answers
if I have natrual grey hair and my hair is long. will this work in my hair.. I've got live cool grey colour to use..or I'll do streeks.. what do recommend..
How long before I can add more of the same colour as 1 box did not take very well?
Used the rose gold dye on my daughters blonde/highlighted hair and it didnt dye it at all. P123 colour. Absolutely no colour deposit at all. Is this colour faulty? Surely there should be some colour change to a blonde head of hair?
