Satisfied with the outcome on my dark hair
I have dark brown hair and was sceptical to whether the temporary dye would work on my natural colour, but after having an ALMOST smooth application and leaving it for the maximum time, I was impressed that it DID put a nice amount of colour onto my hair. I wouldn't say that it was exactly blueberry, as the packet says, but maybe more of a warm purple colour. After being quite satisfied with the outcome I am very tempted to try this product again, in a different colour, and see the results.

This is my cheap go-to colour when I need my greys covered for another week or 2...it is my reliable get-me-through product.
It's easy to use...the colour doesn't last long but then it is a semi...that's why I use it as a bridging DIY colour. Great for if the finances are low and you need the colour.

dull and patchy
I used the rich burgundy on my natural strawberry blonde hair and found it left patchy dull results.
it did however form a great base on my hair for dying over with a stronger and brighter dye. leaving amazing results.
messy application and the gloves are so cheap and terrible

Doesn't show up on dark hair
I picked up red embers which is supposed to the most effective on dark hair, but it didn't show up at all even though I left it on for 45 minutes. On the other hand I love how it doesn't damage your hair. It actually left my hair very soft and shiny. Having said that it is completely ineffective as a hair dye. Good thing it was so inexpensive

I have been using this for 2 years in Red Embers and it is soooo cool!
I have mid Brown hair at shoulder length.
The smell of this is not bad at all but the Packet is hard to get all the dye out.
I leave it in for 45 mins and it works wonders!
I had some blonde put in my hair and when i did this over the blonde as well, it went very bright but it stayed in and stained it.
i think this product is very good

Fun colour experiments!
I tried the Strawberry Platinum colour first - after my bright copper over bleach faded out and left me with just bleach I was looking to play around with some lighter tones.
The first thing I have to say is that price is amazing! You will not find a better value for money hair colour out there in such a fun range of colours!
The scent during colouring was not too strong and there is a good amount of colour in one packet to cover all of my hair without worry.
After washing it out my hair felt soft and smooth. After I dried it I was pleasantly surprised by the tones and the sliight pastel pink highlights I was left with.
Unfortunately the colour does fade out more than half in the first 3 washes. But it is cheap enough to colour a little more often than you would normally and you can change it up with some of the others.
I used the Strawberry platinum one twice before trying the silver toner, which unfortunately did turn my hair slightly blue - but you couldnt tell 2 washes later so it's all in good fun. I still have chocolate and dark natural brown. I may just flip a coin!
The best part is it's semi-permanent and does not damage your hair one little bit so you can use as many different ones as you like as often as you like!

Where's the colour?
After deciding I wanted my hair a light pink, i thought I'd try schwarzkopts strawberry platinum. I naturally have light blonde hair which on the packet this colour is highly recommended for. So I put on the colour and waited. My hair didn't seem to be changing so instead of leaving it on the max 45 minutes I kept it on there an extra 5 minutes. There was still know noticeable change but I decided to wash it off thinking I may see some change. So I washed it and blow dryed it and to my disappointed my hair was the exact same colour. It didn't do anything. Extremely disappointing.

Absolutely love, love, love this!! I can dye my hair mutiple times without really damaging it, the colour lasts longer than the 8 washes that the packet says so quite worth it for temp colour, I have bleached hair so I was surprised that it works well on

The best blonde toner
I used to love using the silver toner on my blonde hair because its extremely affordable and It saved me from going to the hairdressers and spending 10 times the amount, it worked really well and smelt so great. I even have used it a couple times just to freshen up my brown hair and it has turned out great!

For the price it's great, easy to apply, the colors are nice however it doesn't last very long like other semi permanent colors ive tried.
