    I am very happy with the results from this hair color! I picked out the "suede" shade, which was described as "light brown," hoping to darken my highlights a little so they blended better with my dark roots until I could get to my salon. I left the color on the full 20 minutes, and ended up with an all-over medium brown shade....not exactly what I wanted, but it looks great...just like I came from the salon! My damaged hair is now shiny and somehow looks healthy. I am very happy with the results and am considering using this hair color on a permanent basis! Definitely worth the money!

    When they changed the formula on this, I was devastated! I read horrible reviews of how the new mixture dried hair out. I decided to try the new package, using Suede as it is the smallest change to my medium brown hair. It covers the grays but does not over-dye the darker hair. (I also use Pecan when I need a boost of more reddish. Hazelnut is way dark- avoid unless you have very dark brown hair) It smelled just as bad as the old version. The first day, when you can't shampoo, you'll definitely be giving off that "color" smell. It's messy...it's a thick liquid and not a foam. So have towels all over your counter and flooring! (learned THAT the hard way) AND..DO NOT bother to use that "touch up" squeeze packet! I tried it after a week when a few grays popped out, and it only succeeded in dying my SKIN. So I had this weird brown ring around my temples and forehead. Yeesh! I recommed touching up with Nice N Easy Root Touch Up instead, at about the two week point. My hair grows fast, so I re-color at the end of 3 weeks. It only takes 15 mins for my grays to take the color. All in all, I like this brand for the color and I'm afraid to experiment with other brands, trying to find the right color! So please just take my advice and go one color lighter than you think you want. You can always go darker, but you can't wash out TOO much color! :)

              The new formula, that just recently came out, is nothing like the old. I was a 10 year dedicated user of color #13. I tried the new formula and was not impressed, it is much harsher and the color was a lot redder, I wont use it again. Now I am on the hunt for a new hair color. Sad...

                So heres the deal I wanted to color although I have waited heard lots of buzz regarding clairol lately ..NOT GOOD. So I did some research on Internet and apparently moved manufacturing to Mexico and they have had several issues , recalls and color mishaps.... Be Careful do strand test first and whatever you do THROW out the refresher unless RED ORANGE is a flattering color on you. CLARIOL should Listen to the consumers remember we HOLD THE power of choice. BTW, I am choicing to not return to Natural Instincts I need to hear Good Vibes not Bad. Sorry Clairol I did trust your products but not any longer. DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!!!!

                Clairol got it wrong with this supposedly new and improved formula. The old was perfect...this new formula is much harsher and the color is redder. I won't be buying this anymore.

                I loved the previous natural instincts.
                The color always looked natural and received many compliments.
                It was gentle on my hair.
                The new natural instincts is harsher on my hair even my hairdresser(that loved the older natural instincts) recommends that I stop using this new one.
                The 2 week revitalizer not only puts too much red in my hair but is a nuisance to use.
                I use to brag about Natural Instincts but not anymore.
                I would love to know where I can get the older Natural Instincts 13 suede/light brown
                I am 62 and have lots of grey hair use ev 6 weeks

                Got tired of paying $60 at the salon. This was my first time doing my own color. I'm about 10% gray and wanted a color that would fade over time so chose a semi-permanent product. I was nervous but it was really simple to do. The color looks darker than the box, and the grays only picked up a little color so they are lighter than the rest of my hair, but it blends well and looks natural. I did notice some reddish highlights out in the sun but again, it looks natural. Conditioner included in package is great.

                  I use this product a little more often than suggested as I am now more than 50% gray. I don't like a gray crown so I touch up every two or three weeks. My hair stylist encourages me to continue using this product as my hair is the healthiest of any of her clients near 50 years of age. I'm not fond of the cream rinse fragrance, but I rinse with it then use my conditioner right after it and am happy with the result.

                    This color is so natural and it lasts just as long as when I used to get my hair colored at a salon for $65 plus tips. You cannot beat the value of this and my husband loves the color. I have natural red highlights in my hair anyway and this allows my natural hues to shine through but gives it the soft brown I was born with. The smell is pleasant, it doesnt run down my face or neck, and my hair is always softest when I use the conditioner it comes with. LOVE IT!!! I have used this one for years and will continue to as long as they keep making it. Way to go Clairol!

                      this product is pretty good as compared to most. It doesn't stink and I like the fact you can condition every week as opposed to Garnier that doens't give you weekly condition treatments. The only downfall is I'm not sure that a 10 minute color is sufficient to cover resistant grey or even 20.. if you need heavier coverage, use something else.. but I do like the way it turns out.. very nice color..
