I've used many options to cover my grey. This product says it's for brunettes, confusing, because it's FABULOUS for grey hair. I colored my hair permanently for years, then when I turned 90% grey, started dying all over blonde, with highlights and lowlights added. Expensive! Bothersome! I saw this product on drugstore.com when I was searching for temporary colors that don't use peroxide or amonia. I was skeptical, but ordered anyway. To my pleasant surprise, it is by far the best prouct I've ever used for covering grey hair. I've applied twice so far... you can leave it on for much longer than the 3-minute suggestion, if desired. My hair looks like $200 professional coloring. Confused as to why the makers do not market it as a grey cover, like similar products. I intend to use this product forever... have to sign off now so I can order about 10 bottles; I never want to run out.

I have used this product 3 times so far, each use left on for about 5 minutes. I have not noticed a difference in my hair at all, and the few gray hairs I have around my temples and top of my head are still showing. I was disappointed with this product because I believed by the 3rd use I would at least see less grays and shinier hair. In fact, it left my hair feeling a little dry. I don't see the point of this product. I did give it 2 stars because it was really easy to use and it didn't stain my hands despite some of the negative comments about the stains.

      I really like this product. I've always been afraid to dye my hair but it seems dull to me lately and this gives it a nice boost without having to be questioned from everyone you know about dying your hair. It's easy to use and the stain it leaves on your hands comes off pretty fast, usually before I'm even out of the shower.

          I am 56 years old and have used this product for 4 years. I use no other color on my dark hair. This stuff is amazing (and I don't use this term lightly). Color Glaze has a viscous gel texture which was initially off putting, but it rinses out with no greasyness or weight on my baby fine hair. It covers greys with what truly looks like a $200.00 professional highlighting job. I shampoo in the shower daily then apply this stuff and resume the shower. After about 10 minutes I'm finished showering and rinse off the Freda. (you're washing the minor stain from your hands as you shower)I was gutted to see that it is no longer availible in standard drug stores or Krogers! BUT our blessed drugstore.com. has it. STOCK UP LADIES! I am sore afraid of discontinuance with this and it's a veritable miracle in a bottle.Plus a [$] bottle lasts me a month. I've considered the cost of quarterly professional highlights at the salon and this is the hands down best choice for value AND quality AND ease.

              Way too messy for the results, which were neglible. Artec's color-depositing shampoos & conditioners work just as well without staining your hands & tub.

                  Temporary color minimizes gray for people with small amounts of gray. I don't know about large amounts of gray. No more than twice a week I put a sandwich bag on my hand and apply a nickel size dollop at each temple and streak several quarter size dollops thruout hair. Leave on 5 minutes and rinse and condition. One bottle lasts a longer time by not applying all over. I can stop at any time and my hair goes back to its original shade after four shampoos. Does not cause discoloring of original hair color that has to grow out.

                  This product truly does make gray look like highlights, which is wonderful. However, it definitely weighs down my fine hair and makes it greasy looking as well. I've gone back to using Roux Fancifull temporary color which is a bit messier but does not weigh my hair down in the least, makes gray look like highlights, and adds lots of shine. I wanted to like this, but I won't buy again.

                  It make work good for dry hair types and thick hair types.

                          I only use a little at a time a couple times a week. Just make sure to wash it out, and wash it off your hands after to get the dark color off.

                          I use the Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner before using the Chestnut to Espresso John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze (color glosser/shine booster). While the instructions suggest using this product in the shower and leaving it on for at least 3 minutes, I step out of the shower, work the product into my hair, and leave it in for about 5 minutes -- then I rinse it out. Yes, it's an extra step, but it works with good results for me. Also, it can be somewhat messy using my out-of-shower method. My dark brown hair with streaks of gray shines for at least a couple of days after use. Oh, and while it does not cover the gray, the streaks just look bright -- almost like I've had strands of my hair streaked professionally. The product really does give my hair an overall shot of brown color, too. I use this product 2 or 3 times a week. The thing is, I can't use professional strength or over-the-counter hair color products because I have VERY sensitive skin. I have not found a salon or OTC product that addresses the sensitive skin issue. Moreover, my hair suffers with the use of salon and OTC products -- it becomes lackluster and overall the products just seem to be too harsh. So, the John Frieda Color Glaze gets 3 stars from me. I'd give it 5 stars if the glaze lasted for more than a couple of days. Moreover, I think the product is over-priced. For now, it's doing a very nice job on my 60-year-old hair.
