    I have fine, delicate hair that is naturally dark blonde with gold tone and some natural highlights and also added highlights that are subtly lighter. The highlights had grown out partially and I did not want permanent commitment to re-coloring, or to spend a lot of money at a salon. Natural Instincts in Sahara light blonde was the perfect shade for me to place at the regrowth area . I used it like highlights, pulling random fine sections and concentrating the color in the regrowth area. This gave enough tone/color to the area to make it blend with the highlighted portion.

    The Clairol folks were very helpful (I highly recommend consulting their help line or online chat if you have any doubts about color, as they steered me away from a product I was considering, saying it might turn my hair green given the history of color deposit and lightening already done on it!). Also recommend doing the strand test first and if using on any hair that had previously been lightened (like the highlights I mentioned), make sure that the color turns out OK in case it gets on that area, since this product does not really lighten hair but deposits pigments that I was told could not look right on lightened hair.
    I probably will consider using Natural Instincts all over my hair at some point. The above test allowed me to kind of see the color first without making a commitment.

    Also I was able to use just part of the solution for the initial strand test, then for the highlights and saved the rest. Just mixed the amount needed the using the same measured amount of each of the colorant and developing lotion , without removing the nozzle cap but just unscrewing the lid of the developer, then recapped both bottles tightly.

    I tried this in the Amber shade. I have medium brown hair and have never had any dryness issues or other hair issues. In fact, I've always gotten compliments on my hair even though I blow dry it every day. This product, however, made my hair feel dry and frizzy. The color came out fine but a bit too orange. The problem with semi-permanent dyes is that the dye coats the hair, disturbing the natural texture and coherence of the hair. Nutrise with fruit oils is much better. I've used it over and over and I've never had a problem. Its a permanent dye, but it does fade out in about 6 months so you don't have to worry about roots. Also, you can do more drastic changes with a permanent dye. Good luck!

      I've been dying my hair in salons and at home since I was 14 (am 40s now). It's naturally dark blonde, but lately has been been a gold/blonde disaster, or "tri-colored" - dark roots with sprinkles of gray, yellow-ish blonde overtones and fried orange undergrowth. This product was amazing. I now don't look like a low-class freak so much when I leave the house. It evened everything up - the yellow was brightened and toned down, roots gone (with no orange "hot roots," either!) and the fried orange undergrowth is still a little (only slightly) goldish, but otherwise nice and toned down. It helped to make my over-processed hair closer to normal again. I am going to keep using it because it can only get better!

      Given that this is so cheap and gentle and the results so good, I will definitely be using it again and will definitely recommend!

        I have long, thin hair and it was becoming dry and brittle from permanent coloring, hair dryer, straight iron and the sun. The ends were like straw. At least with a less harsh color (over permanent color) my hair is not as dry. The color looks great the first 2 weeks but it also helps if not washed everyday. After two weeks my hair looks like it needs color again. It comes with a "color refresher" packet to be used after 2 weeks, but I did not see any change in using it.

          Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts Haircolor, Light Blonde 002, 1 ea:

          I normally don't leave reviews for products but there's a first for everything. My natural color is a fairly dark blonde with a few grays here and there. I had my hair professionally highlighted at a salon and it was a very light blonde. When my roots started growing in they looked very dark and I didn't want to have to pay $80 for highlights every couple months. After researching the internet and reading a ton of reviews, I decided on this product. It is the lightest blonde available through the Natural Instincts line. I followed the instructions and left the product on for 15 minutes because I wanted to make sure that my roots would lift (there is peroxide in this product and it does lighten a bit). I couldn't be happier with the results. The very dark blonde roots lightened and now blend in much better with the rest of my hair, and the rest of my hair which was very blonde is still very blonde and it didn't change the color at all. The only difference in the previously lightened hair is that it feels much thicker and fuller (I have very fine hair). I am very confident that this is the solution to having to go to the salon for professional root touch ups/highlights. Since my dark roots lightened some this time (but not too much) the next time my roots grow in they won't be nearly as obvious. Did I mention that this was the first time I ever used an at home hair color? It was very easy to apply- I used two packages because my hair is just below shoulder blade length and it was the perfect amount. Try this product with confidence. It is great.

          I started using this product when my son died. The gray began to show up. I was not happy with what I saw in the mirror. The wrinkles were ok, but not the gray! My son's number in baseball was #2 so I picked the #2 color in Natural Instincts. My hair was sort of light brown so the switch to blonde wasn't that big of a deal. It's been 11 years and I'm still a #2 Natural Instincts Blonde! Don't tell anybody!

            Since I am letting my hair go natural, this product gives a little "pick me up". Does not stay on like a permanent coloring product does, so there are no roots to contend with. Last through several shampoos.

              I bought this hair color because I'm pregnant and wanted something with no ammonia. I wanted it to lighten my dark roots to the blonde I've been dying my hair for years, but after I got it home, I see in tiny print "does not lighten hair." What? Then what is the point! Did nothing for my dark roots. The only thing that was good was the conditioner. It smelled good and made my hair soft. But as far as color, it sucks!

                  I love this haircolor! I have been using it for years, and it is the only color I have ever put on my hair (besides the one time I decided to get low-lights and I was back to the salon the next day to become blond again because I didn't like it!) I have gotten so many compliments on my haircolor, and when I tell people that it's Natural Instincts Sahara they are shocked...people think I have it professionally done! I can't imagine the money some people spend on having their hair professionally colored, when you can get this wonderful color from a box! For anyone that wants to go from dishwater blond, to a nice, pretty blond that doesn't look too bleached or brassy, get this haircolor! You will not be disappointed!

                      I am a brunette and have colored my hair blonde for years. after getting a lot of gray in my hair, I decided to use the sahara blonde haircolor. it works great!!!! the colors blend and I have healthier hair than when I used permanent hair color. the darker hair, the gray hair and the already blonde hair blends in perfect every time, also I never am careful to touch up only the roots. if you get the color on your pre colored hair-no problem. it is very gentle and comes out perfect each time.

                          I have fine, delicate hair that is naturally dark blonde with gold tone and some natural highlights and also added highlights that are subtly lighter. The highlights had grown out partially and I did not want permanent commitment to re-coloring, or to spend a lot of money at a salon. Natural Instincts in Sahara light blonde was the perfect shade for me to place at the regrowth area .
