“natural instincts”

Written on: 30/01/2014

I decided to try Natural Instincts Hair Color on a whim. PLEASE don't try this product. While applying this color I had to open the window as to the ammonia being so strong, but it has literally fried my hair. I have been cutting back on $ due to the decline in our economy but I fear I will need to cut off a huge part of my fried ends… Read Full Review

“YIKES, I'M LOSING MY HAIR...”

Written on: 11/09/2013

I've been using Natural Instincts hair color for over 10 years with no problems. I liked the fact that the color only lasted through 28 shampoos and the color of my hair always turned out shiny medium brown and hair was so manageable. Now...after trying the "new" Natural Instincts, I am appalled with the results! The color I originally used is no longer available, so I used a color closest to that color with dreadful results - my hair is now red. I, like so many others, used the "refresher"… Read Full Review

“Want your hair to fall out than use this product”

Written on: 06/09/2013

I recently used the Spiced Tea color on my hair because Clairol had discontinued the color I had used for years and loved. This new color and conditioner is horrible!!!!!! I had beautiful shoulder length reddish blond hair and now I have a head full of frizz and hair breaking off and falling out. I could cry. Worst of all now I have no idea what to use and am afraid to try another product on my hair. I would love to meet the person that made these changes. He surely should be fired… Read Full Review

“Formula is not the same”

Written on: 06/08/2013 by LauraSch (1 review written)

I have been using Natural Instincts light brown or light ash brown for about 8 years. It used to cover well, and make my hair soft and shiny and the color would last over a month. Now, since the formula was changed and the color refresher was added, it is not the same at all. I used it for the last time two days ago. My hair gets coarse and dry and strands are falling out. I tried the refresher packet once a few years ago and like everyone else, it turned my hair orange, but I noticed it… Read Full Review

“losing hair”

Written on: 07/07/2013

I have lost so much hair. Now I am still losing my hair. I have so many bold spots on my head now. I used had very thick and strong hair. Now I am so depressed. I worried that I might need a wig soon. I had used this product for so many years and never had problem, until the last time. Felt it was a totally different product. They shouldn't sell this type product without more research. It is so scary and made me angry… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2013

My experience has been much the same. I have used Natural Instincts for 7 years. I have not liked the newer product. Orange hair and scalp with the refresher. I've been blaming my hair loss on anything I could think of. Now I know… Read Full Review

“Color refresher.....NOT!!”

Written on: 26/03/2013

I have used Natural Instincts for several years. ( #13, Suade) I have always been pretty satisfied until they changed the product. They put the color refresher in and took away half the conditioner. The refresher turns your hair red/orange. I did email Clairol and they said they were puzzled. Really?? I told them to go back to the old stuff, it was better all the way around. But they haven't and I'm sure they won't. I think I will save up all the color refreshers and send them back to… Read Full Review

“DID NOT WORK!!”

Written on: 20/09/2012

Pretty much anything I have ever used has worked to cover up my gray until now. Tried this product the other day and waited the full 15 minutes. It looked as though I never colored my hair. Just took alot of time and effort for no results. I had to color my hair with Loreal 10 minutes a few days later and that worked beautifully… Read Full Review

“Light Auburn Brown”

Written on: 02/09/2012 by rg1157 (1 review written)

I was extremely disappointed with this product. When you put it on your hair it drips all over the place and makes a real mess! The color did not cover a particular area of my hair, even though I waited the maximum of 15 minutes, as suggested on the directions! Also, the color that came out was too red and it looks okay, but not what I had anticipated!! All around this product is terrible and I will never ever use it again or recommend it to anyone!! Very disappointed. If I had known it… Read Full Review

“Natural Instinct Light Ash Brown”

Written on: 19/07/2012

I use to love using the Light Ash Brown but since they have changed to the cool browns I hate it. I can use the new cool brown and it does okay but when I use the 2 week enhancer it turns my hair red. Won't ever use the enhancer again - tried it 3 times and the old saying strike 3 you are out. Will look for a new product. I read a lot of reviews about the enhancer and Clariol says nothing has changed - let them put it on their hair. Seems like they would pay attention to reveiws by what use… Read Full Review

I have used Light Ash Brown for several years-the new cool brown isn't bad; however the color enhancer turned my hair a nasty copper/orange color and it also stained my scalp-
I wonder if anyone at Clairol reads these reviews-DUH

“So glad I read these reviews”

Written on: 11/05/2012

I used to use Natural Instincts for years because I loved the color and how shiny and healthy it made my hair look. I'm currently wanting to color over some highlights that I'm trying to grow out and so I'm online looking up which color I might want to try. Man! Am I glad I read these reviews!! I can only imagine the disaster I would have had if I had colored over my highlights with their obviously new formula. Wow Clairol, so many have said it already don't fix what isn't broken!… Read Full Review

“Good product gone bad”

Written on: 07/05/2012 by 9159ALARM (1 review written)

Old product easy to use, natural looking, shiny hair, good body. Pour a bottle into a second bottle, shake and use. New product, dry hair, dull color, no body. difficult to use. First open cream toothpaste type tube. find comething with a point to shove in to open. Difficult squeezing the cream out, worried about not getting it all. Does not cover well. Can not find a shade equivalent to the old color does not cover grey well. Hate it, dissappointed, confused. If not broken why fix it? If the… Read Full Review

“WARNING!!! DO NOT USE!!!”

Written on: 16/04/2012

WARNING!!! DO NOT USE NATURAL INSTINCTS NEW FORMULA!! YOU WILL BE SORRY!! Some people are saying their hair is falling out in clumps after more than one application of this new formula. This hair color has many problems: a) The new formula is extremely drying. It causes your hair to feel like straw and makes it extremely unmanageable. b) It makes your hair very hard to style - it will cause your hair to lose volume and go flat due to an over-conditioning agent in the color itself that… Read Full Review

“Natural Instincts (Brass-Free)”

Written on: 06/04/2012

I wanted a nice brown color without any red. I used Natural Instincts Medium Brown (Brass-Free). I was pleased with that color. After a couple of weeks, I used the color refresher that came in the package. Ohhh nooo! They must have put all the "brass" in that packet. My hair turned out red . . . exactly what I did not want! I will probably use this brand and color again, but I will throw away the color refresher!… Read Full Review

“Glad I read the reviews first”

Written on: 05/04/2012

Been using Nice n Easy for years with no problem. I've been thinking about letting my gray grow out (but subtly - I'm a chicken and wanted it to blend a little in the process.) I tried Natural Instincts a year ago with bad crispy hair results, but wrote it off as a reaction to the hard water residue in my hair. Thought about trying it again but to be safe decided to read some reviews. Found I am not the only one with that experience! I'm going to return this Natural Instincts to the store!… Read Full Review

“horrible!”

Written on: 18/03/2012

I've used the Clairol Natural Instincts #20 for several years with wonderful results. I just colored my hair last week with the NEW 10 MINUTE Clairol product and it said to use it on DRY hair. All the other times I used it on damp hair. Well...low and behold..this product sucks! It dried out my hair and damaged it so now I have to use a product for dull and damaged hair. Clairol....You're history!!!! Will throw away the NEW UPDATED 10MINUTE product and go on to another manufacturer. YOU… Read Full Review

Both the new formulations for Natural Instincts (liquid and creme) are horrendous. I have used the old Natural Instincts Liquid for years and was very happy, but when I tried the new formulation, it made my hair frizzy and as hard and dry as a rock, and the really strange thing is it makes your hair go completely flat and will not hold a style. This formulation is a BIG MISTAKE that they need to correct. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT UNLESS THEY GO BACK TO THE OLD FORMULATION. Natural Instincts is now THE WORST HAIR COLOR ON THE MARKET. It was the best before they changed it. We can't believe they would put a product like this in the stores. It should have remained in testing for a long time. AND NOW IT WON'T EVEN COVER GRAY FOR MORE THAN TWO WEEKS!!. I am now looking for a solution for this mess my hair is in - it looks like a Brillo pad. DON'T TRUST CLAIROL ANYMORE - YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO COME OUT WITH NEXT!
