    First off, I've been using natural instincts haircolor for about seven years now, and I love that it's gentle and smells nice. The conditioner leaves my hair feeling soft post-coloring, as well. I had colored my hair an auburnish color not too long ago, and decided I was over it. After trying to use multiple products to strip the color, it wouldn't budge. Finally, I bleached it. Well, the auburn was out-but now my 2+ months of natural light brown roots were ORANGEY YELLOW!! What to do? I ran to the drugstore and bought this shade of natural instincts. Ten minutes later, I had less straw-like, great scented, natural dark blonde/light brown hair. YAY!!! Not sure how long it'll last, as my hair is so processed...but in the past, this brand has lasted a while and fades very naturally.

    This color would be great... If it matched the color on the box. Naturally, I have very light brown hair (some say dark blonde), and it turned my hair dark brown with a subtle red tone. This is not a "neutral" shade, and definitely isn't the color advertised on the box.

      I used Loving Care for years and was happy with it, but they don't make it anymore. I mixed this half and half with Sunflower Medium Golden Blonde and got a nice color, but it faded fast. I have lots of gray but don't want the roots you get with a permanent hair color. I'm still experimenting with mixing colors, but my local drug store doesn't carry all of the shades, so I'm buying here. I tried the Light Blonde, but it didn't seem to do a thing. The photo on the box is very deceiving if you have a lot of grays. The color in the picture is way darker than it would be in real life.

      All in all, it's okay, but I'm still searching for something better.

        I have always loved Natural Instincts but I do not use the packet of color refresher that comes in the box. For some reason, it tends to turn my hair orange.

        Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts Haircolor, Dark Blonde 009N, 1 ea:

        I have colored my own hair off and on for about 20 years now, so I'm no novice. [...] and that's the only reason I tried this brand. I don't color to get rid of gray hairs since I don't mind the few that I have. I got this not to change my color really but to get rid of the hair color that I've been trying to grow out and I couldn't take it anymore since it looked brassy.This is easy to use and doesn't smell bad in the least. However, even though all hair dye states that it will stain skin or fabric, I haven't found it to be that true except this time! I didn't wipe it off my forehead fast enough apparently because it was stained all day, noticeable through my makeup! I also noticed that it didn't cover some of my gray hairs even though I followed the directions and left it on my hair the maximum amount of time allowed. Again, I don't mind, but I bring it up for those who might be dying their hair to cover grays. As for the reviewer who said to choose warm, you need to choose according to your own hair color. I have natural dark ash blonde hair, so I have to choose cool or neutral tones. After using this neutral, I think I would choose cool in the future. My hair does feel soft and looks shiny though.Not bad, but not great. I doubt I would use this again.

                I recently had my hair highlighted (blonde highlights on light brown hair). It turned MUCH blonder than I had intended and I went home to live with the highlights for awhile thinking that I was just not used to seeing myself very blonde). Well, I lived with it for about 4 days but couldn't get used to it. I decided to use Natural Instincts in this shade to tone down the highlights so there wasn't so much contrast between my natural hair and the highlights...IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM! I now have natural looking highlights that look subtle and pretty.

                    i had dark blonde hair with highlights that turned a gross greyish hue when i was trying to de-brass the rest of my hair. i figured i would use this product to even it all out. instead, it turned my hair dishwater brown. WAYYYY darker than the box suggests. do not recommend!!!

                    My hair is already dark blonde, so I tried this shade to add a little extra shine. I've used this brand many times, but this shade somehow darkened my hair to medium brown (even though the bottle was labeled with the correct color) and took away all shine--my hair is now completely dull. Even my mom commented on how horrible my hair looked and that I should invest in a better shampoo. I told her maybe I should invest in a better hair color. Try the shades that have "golden" or "warm" in the title, because otherwise your hair is going to be dull and mousey.
