Default Anyone tried Madison Reed?

I read the article on Naturally Curly about Madison Reed and I love the idea of hair color that isn't harsh but that still works. Anyone tried this? It's a little pricey (after using Sally products which are so affordable for us DIY gals) but I am going to try it.

And hope that 1. it covers the grey and 2. doesn't totally ruin my current color, which I like!

Would love to hear any reviews!!

I just read the article and I didn't see any evidence the product is not harsh: plus it says at the bottom "this article is sponsored by Madison Reed".

A quick Google shows the company is brand new, the USP is that its a subscription service. Ammonia free is not gentler on hair, just on the nose. Alternative developers can be temperature sensitive and give uneven results. PPD free reduces the risk of a potentially life threatening (thankfully rare) allergic reaction, but such products often contain chemicals in the same family as alternatives anyway. You should always do a skin patch test even when you have used a product before.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut

Experimenting with: going back to basics
