Has anyone used the hair dye and how well was your hair colored?

    I've wondered about it too. I posted awhile back but don't think I got any responses. My Target doesn't carry it though :(

    I am interested in this too. I wanted to try it but I don't know anyone that has used it before.

    Edit: I read some reviews online and they're mixed. Some people loved it, some people were blah about it. I did notice that it didn't really make too much of a difference on really dark brown/black hair. In fact, one lady had to take it back because the blonde color she purchased didn't do anything to her strand test (at all). So, she got the bright auburn color and it came out about a shade lighter than than her natural color. So, if anything, I've noticed it tinting the natural hair color or just changing it slightly. I hope that helps someone! It helped me. =)

    I have dark 4a/3c hair and used Shea Moisture's reddish blonde color August 2013. I loved the results. My hair felt so soft & moisturized after, it kinda felt like I used a conditioning treatment tbh. My hair was a bright coppery red color, but it faded into a more subdued reddish gold color by September. I never touched up, I just let my hair grow out & the color faded into a medium brown. My ends are still brown to this day, a year later.

    Here's a shot of it from August last year ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1404138185.628102.jpg

    My hair is golden blonde and I have 2c/3a hair. Ifs not as kinky and thick as most of the people who use this product (from the people I know that use it)
    It's extremely frizzy and thin but there's a LOT of if.
    It's deff curly, not wavy.
    I'm interested in this product because I hear it's very gentle.
    But would this product seem like it would be too strong on my hair?

    ^^Do people think kinky hair is strong? Do people really think that goes hand in hand? Just wondering. Carry on.

    I think you got the wrong end of the stick there!

    I got the impression that she meant because her strands weren't as thick and her hair is a much lighter colour than the majority of people who have used the product, that she was wondering if the dye would be too strong as in too HEAVY - like either too moisturising for her thinner strands or too strong a colour (like too bright) for her already light hair.

    I don't think she's talking about strength in terms of kinky hair being 'physically' stronger at all. That's how I read it anyway

    Not sure what you mean by wrong end of the stick. But I don't think I misread at all. I may have taken something different from her intent but I read precisely what she said.

    Based on her post the majority of people that use it are kinky and thick. Her hair is not. Would it be gentle enough for her hair. So in other words it sounds as if it's gentle to kinky and thick hair but may not be to hers. My take away is that she may think that kinky hair is strong to withstand it but hers may not be. The kinky hair I've dealt with is breakage prone and does not do well with processing unless done gently and with care. Tis all.

    100% what I meant. I have family with kinky hair, about as kinky as can get. I undestand how fragile it is, espesially since I'm the one designated to tend to the kinky kids hair.

    So let me clarify.
    The question is, is it too heavy for thin strands, and will the color be very bright on light hair? I'd be doing an auburn so my fear is it will be a very bright red

    Maybe do a Google search like, "Shea Moisture dye thin hair" and see if anyone has reviews on it. Also, try a strand test. Just make sure u purchase the dye from a refundable store.

    I think you mean you have fine hair, as in the strands themselves are quite tiny/fragile. Thin hair implies you don't have a lot of strands per area, as in it's not densely packed. FYI I have fine hair and I didn't think the hair color was too harsh at all. It was pretty gentle. As for how the color deposits on light hair, I don't know.

    Duly noted. Although you didn't have to thank you for the clarification.
