        Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts Haircolor, Hot Cocoa Medium Bronze Brown 26, 1 ea:

        I have tried every haircolor brand on the market and have found the Clairol colors to be the most "natural-looking" of all. Natural Instincts is a great, long-lasting semi-permanent color that is great for covering gray or just trying out a new hue. (I alternate this product with a Clairol permanent brand in the same shade to avoid color build-up.) It gives great color in only 10 minutes and lacks the nasty odor that characterizes many permanent colors. It gradually fades after several shampoos, avoiding an unattractive "root line." So, if you don't like the look of your gray, you can use this product to cover it without any long-term commitment. But once you see how great your hair looks, you will be "hooked" on this product for life.

          My grey hair (roots) grow faster than the product washes out, so I use it once a month instead of every two months. It's a good price, and it's easy on my hair. I buy four at a time.

              Ok so I used this after uses the hazelnut #20 for my last time coloring... which was 3 months ago my hair started our as medium/dark brown. After using this #26 Cocoa it added an whole bunch of hues orange red and gold... PRETTY although for me going from such a cool dark color it was quite a surprise. The clairol experts were so helpful I ended up having to tone down the color that was closet to my roots.... alittle too glowy for me... but all in all with thier help I managed to love this color mixed with hazelnut amazing now if clairol would come out with that shade it is now.... I would buy it in a heart beat MEDIUM AUBURN with more brown but just enough red & warmth to soften it. I learned a lesson and from now on I will call clairol and ask advice before venturing it on my own, they do know best!!!

                It's very easy to use. It comes off my skin easily even if left on awhile. I have accidentally left it on my hair for longer than suggested, and it still looked great and didn't damage my hair. After the first application, I use a little of the conditioner in my hair AFTER I towel dry it, and it keeps my coarse hair soft.

                I use this product once a month and really love this color. It's a semi-permanent product, so don't expect it to last two months. What's nice about that is although it fades, you don't get harsh roots or obvious signs of the color growing out. And when you apply it, the color looks vibrant but natural. And it only takes 10 minutes.

                If you want longer-lasting color, get a permanent formula. But if you want to enhance your color with something that's relatively easy and doesn't demand to be re-done based on glaring root-grow out, this is a good product. Just know that it's going to be a monthly thing if you want to keep up the more intense color.

                  I use the hair coloring about every 3-4 months and it is easy to use. I do find, however, that it fades quickly in the first few weeks.

                  I havent used color in over a year; my experience with this color was pretty good. I have medium brown hair and I used this for the highlights of red/gold. The color came out with such pretty hues and made my hair extra, extra soft from the Clairol conditioner. Now I hope the color stays for awhile.
