    I have used it for 4 years, and love it. It has its quirks -- like the fact that it doesn't lift color....only deposits, but my hair has NO damage from this stuff. If you want a non-damaging product w/ little fade, this is it!

    Thanks CurliLocks & turtlelover! Still mulling it over - torn between Robert Craig & henna...:confused:

    Choose wisely. :) FYI: I think you can use henna after RC (not sure) but I do know that you cannot use RC after henna, until it grows out. There is no commitment with RC; if you try it and don't like it, you can use something else after. :)

    I use it and love it. I've been using it since May/June. I use it every 4 weeks.
    It's very easy. No toner, developer, etc. You can mix and match colors too.

    Henna scares me. So I vote for Robert Craig.

    Thanks for your advice. I'm curious why henna scares you. I agree it seems less predictable somehow - is that why?:?::smile:

    My first few tries with Robert Craig were pretty good, but then suddenly, it started to deposit so much color on my hair that the sections where I applied it turned black. I had to stop using it.

    Henna scares me, too. :)

    I'm just an RC Clear user. I love it for adding shine to my hair, which has become a challenge as I grow in my gray. It's gentle and does a great job. I've been using it for about 1-2 years and I won't even try anything else. This is good stuff!

    I'm a natural blonde and dye red. The only people I know who've henna'd have darker hair and the color change wasn't much.. more of a tint than anything.
    And from my understanding, you can't color over it.. you have to grow it out which I am not good at. I get a lot of outgrowth but my hair never looks longers. Plus I take a lot of medications and that can really mess with your hair so I like to stick with what I know. LOL! I won't bleach either because it scares me too.

    Yikes! Jillipoo -what do you use for color now?

    My hair stylist does my color now and I'm much happier. She uses Matrix color, I believe, and she mixes a couple of colors to give my hair the depth that I could never achieve with home hair color.

    Interesting! How do you use it? Does it get applied as if it were hair color?
