Love it
I have used Goldwell Topchic for years. I have no reason to switch brands!

Just as described, arrived within shipping window and works great. Love Goldwell colorance colors! FYI if you're using one of their 8 and lighter shades, it does not leave lightened pieces or lifted ends (from highlights or bayalage) muddy or flat, like some other colors do when trying to tone blonde down from gold or brassy.

Not 100% sure if it's actually made in Germany
When my hairstylist did it my hair was shinier. Not sure if it's the same product since hers was Made in Germany plus packaging colors were slightly different. The one sold on this site is packaged in the US. I guess Ok for the time being but I wish it would cover greys better since hairline washes off super fast you would have to color every 2 weeks but not as damaging as permanent plus if you make a mistake it'll wash off.

Awesome product!!
Goldwell Colorance Demi Color Semi-Permanent Hair Color is a great product. The color makes your hair shine and gives new life to my hair. It always turns out for me and others I have used this product on. It is easy to apply and mix.
ProsIt washes out slowly over approximate 4-6 weeks and doesn't leave your hair with your natural color roots showing. It is very easy to use.
ConsIt does wash out in 4-6 weeks.

I have been using Goldwell Colorance Acid Semi perm color in the NN shades. This product actually covers my grays so well that I do not have to recolor for 8 weeks! It even covers so well that I only color the roots for about 30 mins and the length for 15 mins. It makes my hair so conditioned and soft. I love this product and recomend it for women who do not want to enter the world of permanent drying hair color. I love it!!!!

colors are good
When I mix this 5n with 6n, it gives me my true color. I will be using this combination in "permanent" instead of demi-permanent" next time because my gray hairs are very resistant.

What else do I need to purchase with the Goldwell Colorance 5RB Demi-Permanent Hair Color tube to mix and apply to my hair?

You need Goldwell Colorance Demi Color Developer Lotion, a bottle to mix the product in (this product is too thing to use a bowl) and gloves to apply.

You’ll need the Goldwell Colorance developer. You’ll want a ratio of 1:1.

hello there, you will need the goldwell colorance demi acid developer. This color made my hair so shiny and made it feel healthier. If you have any grays I would highly recommend the goldwell nectaya with its own developer on your roots. Then apply the the demi color on the rest of your hair.Hope you love it

What is the difference between the colorance NN "tube" vs "canister"? I see the tube is 2.1 ounces and the can is 4.2 ounces, but other than that, I can't find any information as to what is different and which is recommended for home use. Thank you!
With the canister you must have the applicator bottle to dispense the product out of the can as it has a hole in the bottom that you connect with the applicator bottle and pushing them together the product dispenses. With the tube you do not have to have the applicator bottle and may use a bottle of your choice to dispense.

You need to use GOLDWELL COLOR MEASURING BOWL for the canister, which is also sold here. It has a valve on the bottom that fits on the canister to dispense the color. I haven't tried the canister yet, but plan to soon. Here is an educational pdf on goldwell that has helped me. Chapter 3 explains the depot system.

My understanding is that you have to buy the dosage system in order to dispense the product from the canisters - otherwise you cannot get it out. Otherwise .... no difference, same product inside.

My hair is naturally a dark ash blonde.I want to go back to my natural color but my hair is light very ashy blonde. Should I use a 5N? 6N? Or NA? (Or using an ash color will make it green since it is already overly toned?)
You color is already rather ashy, so you're going to have to add warmth back in or yes, it will be muddy/green/not look quite right. I don't know how dark your blonde is naturally, but 5 and 6 are (to lay people and myself) more brunette than 'dark blonde', despite the naming. I would tone it darker with a demi 7 or 8 that has some warmth- 7n and 7g or 8g and 8n mixed and see if you like it, that way if it's too dark at a 7 it will slowly wash out and you can pick a lighter (or darker) permanent color.

Is thought color my colorist used last time was colorance 6bg? I can't seem to find it though? Just looking to mix in a golden brown with colorance 6bp? Thank you for any help. :)
You can do either 6B or 7BG both will add golden tone to it, all depends how dark you want to go. If I understood you right..

I have let my hair go gray, most of which is white, with some gray in the back. I would like to use the semi-permanent to give it a light brown color that will wash out gradually. Will this product work on my hair? I don't want to go back to permanent because I hate the grow out lines.

Hello, I would like to buy this product but I am not sure what colour I need, the problem is I am trying to dye my hair as close as possible to the natural one. I used to dye it different permanent colour from diffferent brands, but since 1 year I dindnt dye it at all, and my friend she is a customer with you for long time and she is using this semi colorance and it looks good, she adviced me to do the same, i ordered one time what she recomended me, but the shade was out of stock for around 6 months, and now i want to order this product but im afraid of getting the wrong one. So I need you help please, my hair is 1/4 natural and 3/4 redish orange, i cant understand it. I would like to cover it with a darker shade or i dont know. I got a pictute of my crazy hair colour. I would like to go to a natural shade (medium ash brown, i think )in time, i understand its not gonna work from first time, but im also afraid of getting a red shade even over my natural part of the hair. Please, help me

I use Goldwell 7NA and 8 NA. My hair is naturally dark brown but now I have a lot of gray. I want to use the clear for shine, as we all know what gray can do to your hair...what do I need to mix the clear with?
You would use the blue developer. 2:1 ratio (same as the color) leave in your hair for about 20-30 minutes and then rinse with cold water. The clear for shine is amazing ;)

I have been using Colorance for 20 years and mixed Chestnut, Mahogany and or Light Brown Gold. I wanted to get away from the red undertones and bought Light Brown, but find it too dark for my complexion. How can I get a warm brown, without the red? I am very white, but get great coverage with the light brown. Should I mix it with something lighter? Blond? Thank you!
I had the same problem. I hated the copper tones that looked orange in the sunlight. The answer is adding a color with ash. Ash blonds and ash browns removes the copper undertone and you get to enjoy the color you want longer without it fading into copper. Be careful not to add too much ash. Even the ash blond may darken your overall color significantly. You have to experiment to get that perfect color but at least the copper/ orange color will be gone.

I recently did a treatment of Demi clear and 20v developer to shine and brighten. Unfortunately my roots came out to red/ gold on my light blonde highlighted hair. I would like to bring back the ash and darken my roots a shade. What would be your recommendation to achieve that? My natural root color is a med ash blonde.

I have my Goldwell colors from my beautician. When I am in Florida for several months I would like to mix my own blend when I need it. When the combination of colors is mixed, is it a 1:1 solution of peroxide?? Also, do you measure by the teaspoonful to blend the colors the mix in the peroxide?? I plan to order asap when I get to Florida next week. Can't carry on plane. Maria Sakowitz

I have been using Ion Color Brilliance Ammonia-free color 7G and 8G to color my roots. I would like to start using Goldwell products. What product would you recommend for me? My natural color is dark blond with golden tones. Do I have to use any special Shampoo to transition from one brand to another?
You can choose the same color to switch the new product. You can use your shampoo and conditioner, no needs to buy another one

HI, I see that you still have the old version of the Colorance, please advise if I place the order, will you provide the new version of the Colorance Cover Plus ?
Here is no "new" and "old" version. On the right picture - Goldwell Colorance Demi Color Intensive Developer Lotion. It was signed especially for use with Colorance demi-permanent hair color (NN shades, Max Red shades, or when combining these shades with Acid shades).

is this the same colorance I bought years.ago.that goes on in the shower after you wash your hair----you leave it on while showering than rinse off? I bought a tube of goldwell colorance from my stylist about 15 yreas ago and have never been able to find it since. thankyou, kathleen
It is non-permanent color. But it is a chemical and need to be mixed with developer. You can not use it in the shower. You probably mean other product - Goldwell Colorance Soft Color Foam Colorant Mousse.
