level 2 is the way to go!
, August 28, 2004
This review is from: Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color 02 Sahara Light Blonde 1 Kit (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
Level one rinses only last a week or two before your original color pokes through again. Level 3 is a permanent rinse - so when your hair grows, the different color in your roots has a stark contrast. I love the Natural Instincts level 2 rinses. The color lasting power varies depening on the color of your natural hair and the color you select. I leave color on for over the maximum 20 minutes or it just won't take - but the color is truly natural in appearance and doesn't look like some freakish tone - even when it fades after about 30 shampoos. It starts to gently fade at about the time different colored roots start showing, so you don't get a stark difference - it just looks like your hair is changing colors on its own - slowly and gracefully - giving you a day or even a week to put off before coloring your hair again.

This review is from: Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color 24 Clove Medium Cool Brown 1 Kit (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
I love, love, love the old version of your medium brown color. Why on earth did you change the formula, with that stupid 2 week refresher that turns your hair reddish? On top of it, the newer formula dries out your hair and does not last as long. Please go back to the oringal formulas, please!!!!! I loved the older version, it beautifully colored my hair, and it made my hair silky smooth and healthy.
GO Back to Orginal Version, or else this customer will leave you!

This review is from: Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color 14 Tweed Light Cool Brown 1 Kit (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
Be careful: I used this product (Natural Instincts 14 Tweed, in the OLD box) for years, and always used to be very happy with the color and the conditioner. The color and conditioner always used to make my hair feel smooth, and I used to use the conditioner several times between colorings. I have gray to cover, and the old product was a great color -- cool, light brown, and gentle for using often as my hair grew out. Fade used to be nice and roots not as apparent as with a permanent color.
A few months ago, I went to the store and found that my reliable product had a new and improved box. You can distinguish the "new and improved" product by the green stripe on the front of the new box, and because it offers a "Week 2 Color Refresher" packet.
I grabbed a few of the new boxes, which promised the same good color. The new "improved" product is NOTHING like the old. The color was ugly, and no nice tube of the great conditioner! Tried the Color...Read more
