      Been looking for another 10 minute hair color to replace Perfect 10 which is getting harder to find and this WASN'T worth the money. Although it did only take 10 minutes (I went to the maximum 20 minutes)this product did not cover gray at all. The color was also very light for a medium brown. I never write reviews but this was such a disappointment I wanted to let others know this washes right off and you will still have gray hair after you apply. I will not recommend or buy again; in fact, I plan to call P&G to complain. So glad Drugstore.com still has my Perfect 10 Medium Brown in stock. I just bought ten boxes!

          Comments about Clairol Natural Instincts Haircolor, Medium Brown 20, 1 ea:

          This product is not what it use to be its been reformulated the conditioner is different thinner and watered down not like the conditioner that use to come with the color and the conditioner is the key to keeping the hair in good shape after coloring. The color conditioning pack is HORRIBLE turns the scalp orange and plain NASTY. I loved the old conditioner and would even buy extra boxes just for the conditioner. My hairdresser would discount a hair cut to get a tube of the old conditioner she loved it as well. Clariol made a bad judgement call on this one. In the process of finding another hair color. The new formula leaves the hair dry and brittle thought it was my hair till I stopped using it then I used it again and same thing happened again. I don't normally review but I hope this gets back to the makers of Natural Instincts.

                Didn't cover my gray (which is fairly minor) and the after-two-weeks treatment didn't help. Would not use this product again.

                This dye is easy to use and works fast! I did leave it on the full amount of time because I was trying to cover up highlights, but it didn't come out the color on the box, it was much darker (dark rather than medium brown). So I would recommend using it for less time if you're looking for the results shown on the box. I will say that the dye fades nicely, I'm two weeks in and it looks medium brown now (has since about 1 week in). Next time I will buy cool light brown,though.

                  I have used this product for about 8 years. I refresh my color every 6 weeks or so. It is easy to use and the color is very nice and natural looking. I always get compliments on my hair color. My friends are always surprised to learn I do my own color. I have tried other products without success.

                      I have medium to dark brown hair naturally and I wanted to darken and brighten. It was super easy to use and only had to stay in for 10 minutes! My hair turned the exact color I was hoping for, a very rich warm dark brown. The box says medium brown, but on my hair it is definately dark. Turned out beautiful. I will use it again.

                          This is possibly the best hair color I have used to date. It doesn't smell bad, burn your scalp, drip all over, or take forever to rinse out. I was concerned that it wouldn't be dark enough for my taste because its called medium brown, but its perfect. My color is rich and even (even though I applied it myself), and one box covered all of my long thick hair. I'm glad I bought an extra box though so I can use it again in a few weeks.

                            I just used this product for the 4th time, and I'm happy to report that it's great! I have very dark brown hair and use 28 nutmeg (which I couldn't find on drugstore.com). I wanted to color my hair to cover new grays that have started popping up and it works wonderfully. The grays don't get as dark as the rest of my hair, but they do get a lighter brown and that works for me!

                            I find this product easy to use, the color is a perfect match for my natural color, my hair seems as healthy as ever and it lasts at least 4 weeks. If you skip washings it would last even longer, but I tend to wash daily.

                            If you are afraid of coloring your hair yourself like I was, this is a great product to test drive since it's not permanent. If you end up disliking it, it will just wash away in a month! Lucky for me, I ended up really loving it so I'm happy to have an affordable way to attack my grays!
