My Experience With Clairol Natural Instincts

Thanks to everyone for your opinions and support! I wanted to try the blackberry burgundy black but I couldn't find it at my location so I used egyptian plum.

I used natural instincts because it's semi-permanent and doesn't have any ammonia whatsoever. It also has a little bit of peroxide.

It was very easy to apply and on the package it says you only need to put it on for 10 minutes, but I left it on for about 5 minutes extra.

It smelled really nice. When I washed it out, my hair felt a little dry and I used their conditioner in the package. That conditioner was amazing and my hair went back to normal.

When I got out of the shower and dried my hair, I noticed my hair was super duper shiny and when I stepped directly into the light, I noticed a subtle tinge of a deep red/purple. I wanted the tinge to be more noticeable, but other than that, this was the best colouring I've ever done by myself.

I called clairol to ask when I can colour again and they said 4 weeks. The customer service was great and the woman I spoke to really knew what she was talking about.

So, all in all, I will definitely use natural instincts again!

(I think this is the longest post I've ever done! :lol: )

ETA: I didn't lose my kinks/napps/coils, they are all still perfectly intact! :D

    I'm pretty certain that's a demi and not a semipermanent. Any hair color with peroxide does not wash out of your hair. It may fade more than a permanent color but that's only b/c it doesn't contain ammonia to swell and open the cuticle. The benefit of a demi over a permanent is that it's not as a harsh b/c it doesn't lighten the hair and there are less noticeable roots.

    I use Qhemet olive and honey hydrating balm and I haven't noticed my hair getting lighter, but I have heard some women say that honey has lightened their hair.
