I've been using this product for several years now, so I feel I have the right to my opinion. I'm now 54 years old, and had used the Just for Men shampoo dye for some time, but without satisfactory results--usually mottled, never seemed to last long. Based on that disappointment, I decided to try the GF16 liquid, and this is what I found: To begin with, the scent is objectionable right out of the bottle. It smells somewhat harsh, but understand this--once it dries, the oder is gone. The truth is that I have had several women, "sensitive nose" types, tell me that my hair smells really nice. Go figure. I know these people very, very well , so I am certain they are speaking the truth. So, don't sweat the smell issue.
In terms of its ease of use, there is nothing simpler. I wash my hair daily, and always have. I dry it, and go about my day. When I get ready for bed, I put this stuff on. It either dries before I hit the sack or dries while I sleep. When I get up, I shower and go about my day. The only issue might be the avoidance of any hairspray or the like. Your hair should be free of that when you put the GF16 on. If you use spray, shampoo and dry first.
I have come to view this product the way I view the vitamins I take-- I just do it without a thought, and it works. I put it on 3 or 4 days a week, and more often the week before I get my hair cut. That way the newer (grayer) hair beneath is the right color when the long stuff gets cut off.
The results are remarkably natural looking, and will initially take one to two weeks to gain full effect. No one seems to realize that it's there as the change occurs so slowly and evenly.
In terms of the product's safety, I've looked into the matter a good deal, and have not been able to find any definitive reason to avoid using it--it actually appears to be quite safe.
So, go get your hair cut, and start using this. My guess is that within a week or two, you'll have a natural look that's easy to maintain and doesn't break the bank.

I have used it off and on, and its okay, but hardly has any chance of turning my gray/white hair back into anything close to even a light brown. For those who complain that it says not to wash your hair more than once a week, that is only in the beginning. Once the color is reached, you can wash every day, just use a gentle shampoo. I just want something that will take my gray/white hair, and make it more towards its light brown, without dying it, and then dealing with white roots. How come all the dye colors are for thirty year olds? Give us something that will darken the white, and give something akin to a salt and pepper look.

Comments about Grecian Formula 16 Liquid with Conditioner, 4 fl oz:

I'm 56 with thinning and graying hair, and I needed to turn back the years for a new job and a more active life style intermixing with younger employees. Grecian Formula for men is the only product on the market that works for me without looking like a ridiculous fake dye job. As advertised, it gradually returned my hair back to its original color naturally. For this reason, I use it daily to maintain the color because my job causes me to sweat a lot under my head covering which noticeably washes out the Grecian Formula over a couple of days. For this reason alone, I have a minor issue with this product, but it will not prevent me from continuing its use or recommending it to others!

If you want to just get darker color in areas with low cost this is the product for you. It does smell for a couple of hours after you apply but results are wonderful.

    Comments about Grecian Formula 16 Liquid with Conditioner, 4 fl oz:

    Works and looks natural but the instructions are not really that clear. What I have discovered is, you need to really wet your hair almost to the point of dripping wet. Then do what you can to slow down the drying time. When I first started using it I was only getting my hair damp and after 6 weeks it had little to no effect. If you have longer hair you will use a lot of it and it will get expensive fast. It also does kinda smell like sour vinegar but once dry has no oder.

    This is a very good product overall:

    Pro's: Ease of use, no mixing, no gloves, no mess

    Con's: Bad odor, and it takes a long time for noticeable results
    I've been applying it everyday now for 3 weeks, and I'm
    just now starting to notice results. So, if your not in a big
    hurry and can wait for 3-4 weeks, your OK. Overall, I like
    the product and will but it again

        Okay, it's not exactly the Fountain of Youth but it's not bad! It only takes a few days of use to start taking effect and a few applications a week will keep the effect pretty constant. I really like the thickening effect as I'm not only turning gray, I'm getting a bit thin on top too! I'd recommend this product to any guy who wants to restore a more youthful appearance. Good stuff!
