“Botanics Dark Red”

Written on: 21/02/2016 by 1966Morrow (1 review written)

I dyed my hair from blonde to this dark red so was very nervous about the outcome, but was pleasantly suprised. The colour is amazing and the same as on the box, i left in for 25 minutes before I washed, the colour is very even and shiny, the only thing that could be improved is that I have long hair and had to use 3 boxes to get full coverage, but overall I am very please with the result:)… Read Full Review

“Beautiful Dark Red Colour & Amazing Condition”

Written on: 22/08/2015 by LunarGirl (1 review written)

After a long search for another Semi P. after 'Harmony' stopped selling 'Ruby'; I am so happy to have found 'Botanics' in this rich beautiful red colour which I love. My previously dull and dryish hair is now in amazing condition and is so shiny. Next time I'd use 2 boxes as my hair is long. I left it on for 35 minutes and shook the bottle well to ensure a good colour blend. I also used it on hair with no trace of conditioner. The conditioner in the package is amazing and I wish Boots would… Read Full Review

Unfortuntely the colour chart on this product's box is misleading as there's no way on earth a semi permanent colour can ever lighten hair-it has no peroxide in which would be necessary to lighten hair. A semi permanent can only ever add shine/alter the tone or darken the hair but never remover pigment (ie lighten hair). Sorry for your disappointment.

I bought what I thought was a nice brown colour, but instead it turned my hair purple. Which is against my schools dress code rules :(. I only bought this make because I had used it once before. However on a positive note it did not sting or smell… Read Full Review

“Totally non effective as a hair dye”

Written on: 21/05/2013 by EmilyPankhurst (1 review written)

Used "Palest Oatmeal Light Blonde". Ought to have chosen a known Brand. I've used many different brands and been satisfied that they did lighten my roots. Absolutely no difference to them using this produce. Utterly, inedequate and absolutely hopeless. I followed the instruction to the letter. I will be returning to Boots to discuss the matter. A complete and utter waste of time. I am now worried I won't be able to use another hair colourant for another month! You could say, I am… Read Full Review

“Spiced Conker semi permanent is amazing ”

Written on: 02/12/2011 by Katymackenzie (1 review written)

I have been colouring my hair for 20 years and this is the happiest I have been as a brunette. For less than a fiver and in 20 minutes, my hair is shiny and soft and a beautiful shade of warm brown. It cost me £80+ and took much longer to get a less desirable result at a salon. Won't be buying anything else now… Read Full Review

“Used this product for about five years now”

Written on: 28/05/2011 by HelenaB39 (1 review written)

I love this product..... no nasty smell or stinging which I experienced with other hair dyes. I use bitter chocolate on my dark greying hair, and it covers well. A tip is to use it on hair that has only been washed and dried minus conditioner, as conditioner can affect the dye take-up on grey. My daughter tried it also, but can't find a suitable shade for her brunette hair which doesn't contain red. Overall maybe more colours would make it a better product for some… Read Full Review

This product is a waste of money. I was attracted by the fact that it claims to be organic, but the color doesnt work at all. I tried the semi-permanent colors twice and the permanent once, and my hair color is still the same. But a different hair coloring product, this one is useless… Read Full Review

“I brought Spiced Conker from the Botanics range. ”

Written on: 12/01/2011

I brought Spiced Conker from the Botanics range.

I love this colour to pieces. However, don't be buy this based on the photo on the front of the box. Always look on the back where it says Find Your Shade. It shows you what the colour will be like depending on the colour of hair you have now.
I have naturally dark brown hair so it came out as a dark red on my hair. I love the conditioner that comes with this, iv'e never seen my hair so soft and shiny.
This is definatly my favourite home dye… Read Full Review

I have light brown hair naturally but had totally over bleached it with cheap looking dodgy highlights so thought id go brown.
i purchased boots botanics light brown (roasted nutmeg) which when i first did a strand test went lilac a couple of days later i thought sod it and covered my whole head. im sooooo pleases with the result :) i think the issue i had with the purple steak was because i did not shake/mix the dye together for long enough i shook it this time until it turned dark brown.

Written on: 05/11/2010

I bought 'Spiced Conker' from the advice given by a Boots sales assistant. She informed me this colour has golden tones (not red tones) and would make my hair slightly darker with a golden hue. It's turned out dark auburn, which is a nice colour, but not what I wanted. It has too much red in it despite it looking lightish brown on the box. I used semi permanent but as it has peroxide in it, it behaves like a permanent colour, so will take ages to come out. My hairdressers friend told me… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010

I bought the Medium Carmale Golden Blonde shade after experimenting briefly with shaders & toners and was looking for something not too drastically different from my natural colours, seeing as it was my first time.

I left it on for about 25 minutes and I'm very happy with th end result. Apart from the fact I'd have like to have had it go a slightly lighter, blonder colour. The end shade was largely satisfactory, apart from the lightness and it being a little too caramel than golden, but… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2010

Okay, so I bought this on a whim today, having dyed my hair previously several times and considering myself quite the expert at home dying. It was a good price and the colour looked good - I went for the light brown. I went home and did everything the box said, was weirded out by the purple dye which went the shade of prawn cocktail, and finally on my head went ginger at the top but left most of my hair pretty much the same colour it was before (black) and a bit streaky with light brown in.

It… Read Full Review

If you die your hair from very dark/black, it will never come out the right colour. Going lighter on darker hair will nearly always go gingery the first time. Its best to either have it done professionally or remove colour from your hair and then apply the colour you want. But yeah Schwartzkopf is SO good!

Written on: 28/09/2010

WOW!! I'm soooo pleased. : ) My hair is dark blonde and had some (half head) highlights that were growing out (yuck!). My natural dark blonde colour is also quite dull, so I decided to buy for Boots Botanics light brown semi-permanent dye to even the colour and brighten up my natural colour. (It is 2 for £6 at the moment so a total bargain!)
I can't stop looking in the mirror! It worked better than I hoped. Very natural looking, covered highlights perfectly and it feels in such good… Read Full Review

I bought the palest oatmeal light blonde semi-permanent colour and my hair is dark blonde. the packet said that I would go light blonde. I didn't. Nothing changed. I did four strand tests... one was my original hair, one dye had been on for 10 minutes, one dye had been on for 20 minutes, and one dye had been on for 45 minutes. I couldn't tell the difference between each one. The dye has NO EFFECT AND IS A WASTE OF MONEY. yeah, don't buy it… Read Full Review
