This is why I wanted to change for Naturatint. The way my hair felt in the shower when rinsing out the color really scared me. I thought it was going to all fall out. It turned out that it didn't, but I wasn't sure if the breakage I had was due to the dye or the coconut oil. It just didn't feel right. The color I used was 4N (natural chestnut). It did come out pretty black, but I don't think it looked shoe-polishy(I know...not a word) and I think it was okay with my complexion.
I dyed again a few weeks ago with Garnier HerbaShine which is semi-permanent. The color continues to come off on my hair 'towel' and the few greys at the crown are light brown and almost showing grey again. I guess I'll be trying something else.
Maybe next time, I'll actually order the Robert Craig and give it a try. My problem is that I wait and wait until I cant wait anymore and then just run out to the drugstore. Maybe if I order it now, I'll have it when I decide I need it.
