Clairol::: Natural Instincts & Beautiful Collections Reviews

So… after wondering why I wasn’t ‘feeling’ my hair, I looked at some old pics and figured that it was the color. Near the end of 2008 I began using a colored rinse to cover up my relaxed/colored ends. I used Clairol Beautiful Collection in Dark Warm Brown. I never really kept track of how long it lasted, because it’s a rinse and I don’t think doing one every 8-10 weeks is a big deal. I couldn’t find the Beautiful Collection anywhere in this town, and after prowling the hair color section at CVS, I found this. It was the only Semi-Permanent color on the aisle, so that eased me a bit, seeing as though I don’t want to make a commitment to any color right now. Originally I wanted to go with a natural black color, but after looking at the results indicator on the top of the box, I decided against it. Just because I had never used this brand and I don’t want the color to get stuck, and if I do have to be stuck I’d rather it be with a dark brown. This made me go with Rick Darkest Brown. It has an extra step of mixing the color and a developer which I didn’t appreciate, but seeing as though my options were limited it was alright. I followed the instructions and did a braid n’ curl afterwards. My hair was shiny and soft, and today (1 week later), my hair is still very dark. This color boost was just what the doctor ordered seeing as though my natural color is kind of brassy brownish color. It makes me feel a lot better about my hair that’s for sure. I will keep this in mind for when my options are limited and there aren’t any beauty supply stores open, the Natural Instincts is sold at many drugstores that are open 24 hours. Seeing as though the weather is cooling, I think the darker color falls right in place with the season.
