Been using it for 6 years
I'm really satisfied of this hair color, been using it for 6 years already. Before this one I used to use Matrix. But here the effect of moisturized hair lasts much longer. For my opinion this color for dark hair is one of the most amazing. L'Oreal Pro is also great, but it's much more expensive and you have to put a lot of it on your hair.
ProsGood price Moisturized hair long lasting effect true color
ConsDidn't find any

I use this as a highlift, and even though it says very ash my hair comes out with a beautiful natural blonde shade! Apparently hair has a lot of yellow and the ash counteracts it !

Eyebrow Dye?
I have copied and pasted a review that states the user used it to color her eyebrows as well. Don't do it, or at least wait till you have consulted an optometrist or dermatologist. I believe the product insert would instruct not to use on eyelashes or eyebrows, to do so can cause blindness. The optic nerve is in the vicinity of the eye. I Love It! This is my first time using this product and i love it. It colored all of my gray hair pretty good and i used it on my eyebrows as well. I will definitely be buying this again.

If i want a medium gray/dark gray color. Which color do you suggest?

I have always used a 6% / 20 volume to lift my hair. My blonde hair has gotten so dark over the years that it is now a level 6. With Schwarzkopf would that be the same or do I use the 9% / 30 volume? I want to color within the 8 series, but not sure which one yet. I know I use the 8 natural to cover the gray and then add maybe the gold. Thank you.
I am a professional and have used many colors over the years. I would recommend the 30 volume for about 45 min on the roots. Schwartzcopf gives the best coverage of gray, and very even color. I hope this is a hell tp you

Hi,which Igora is best to cover greys and just a root touch up and which developer ? Thank you! Fatima
For gray coverage, make sure to use the "00" series, such as "6-00" or "7-00" as this is meant for gray coverage.

I've been searching for the hair color 8-5 in the red tube and can't find it. That's my hair color for years and i usually buys it from Amazon, but cant find it anymore. Has it been discontinued?
I think it may have been discontinued. Ask your stylist for the replacement color as Schwarzkopf comes out with new colors every couple months!

I am a cosmetologist and use 6-1 with antiorange on my own roots. The color is always great for the first couple weeks but fades very brassy/orange. This only happens to the sections of my hair I put the color on. The nape of my neck where I leave my natural color is great, my bleach foils also fine. Just the retouch color fades ugly! Suggestions?
