I'm interested in trying this dye. People have been getting good results from it. Just worried about dyeing over henna even though I haven't henna'd in a year.

What henna did you use, pure body art quality or a henna dye/ lower quality product with other additives? You could run strand tests on shed hair.

I've been thinking about trying it as well. I live in the metro Atlanta area and have seen it at my local Super Target. Can't wait to see the results!

I used pure body art quality and I definitely plan on doing a strand test. Shea moisture said using their dye over henna might make the color patchy but I'm hoping that's not the case since its been a year since I've henna'd.

Idk if this is too late, but a month ago I died my hair with the SM- auburn. The color came out good. I was so surprised because it was the first non-black dye that actually dyed my hair. I hadn't died it before the SM in about a year. I also had low porosity hair, so I didn't think it was going to work. I got mine at a local Target for $14.99.

Default Color's misleading

I just dyed my hair with the walnut brown color... Wow! I've been dying my own hair for 20+ years and have never felt this mislead by a color. My roots are ORANGE! I was going for a natural brown color, not Bozo the Clown. Not a fan of re-dying so soon, but I'm going back to the store in the morning to cover this mess up.

Oh...I'm still so mad. To answer the gray coverage...if you have a lot, please don't use. I think that was my mistake. Normally my gray has a nice highlighted look when a I dye it...a little lighter, maybe a hair different in color. Like I said before...it's orange. I'm not exaggerating either. Did I mention I'm getting married in 4 months? Thought I'd do something special...get a "moisturizing" hair dye. So, it does have that going for it, but don't trust a brand with a painting of the hair color on the box instead of a real picture.... just saying.

I don't hear the name of color. I always dye my hair with dark brown and blonde highlight.

Next time run strand tests, don't rely on box pictures real or painted because every head of hair is different. Also you can suffer an allergic reaction at any time, even to products you have used for years, so strand tests can double up as patch tests.

You can dye over with a semi permanent which is non damaging. If the product is ammonia free then it is particularly susceptible to temperature fluctuations be that from the head or the room, even application is important, sometimes doing the roots last as salon colourists do, keeping the head evenly warm.
