Love this color and the coverage is excellent.

I have used many different hair colorings, but Age Defy is the best I've found. The light auburn is not brassy and the color does not fade as so many others tend to do. I am mostly grey and the coverage is excellent. Hair looks very healthy. Only downside is I can't find it in stores. They carry every other color but LIGHT AUBURN. The color I am trying to achieve is Light Auburn, not Light Brown -- no color option for reds.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Good color, confusing directions

For root touch up, online states to leave it on roots for 20 minutes, then apply all over for 5 more minutes. My paper directions states to leave on roots for 30 min, and all over for an additional 5. Even more confusing are the directions for step 1 pre conditioner. The actual tube states to put it on root to tip, but the paper directions states to avoid the roots! So... which is it? I left it off of the roots figuring it will hold color better. We shall see, as it is still on my head! I have used it in the past, and the directions then said to avoid the root area. I am not sure if just the directions have changed, or the ingredients. Better quality control is in order, regardless of the reason.

Yes, I recommend this product.

FOOL ME TWICE NEVER AGAIN

I FORGOT WHY I STOPPED BUYING THIS HAIR COLOR AND BOUGHT IT AGAIN WITH A COUPON. THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN . WHILE TRYING TO COMBINE THE TUBE COLOR 2A INTO THE APPLICATION BOTTLE 2B, THE COLOR TUBE LEAKED ALL OVER MY GLOVED HANDS, DOWN THE BOTTLE AND EVERYWHERE. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IT HAPPENED. I TRY TO GET ALL THE CONTENTS IN THE BOTTLE AND BEFORE IT IS HALF EMPTY THE TUBE SPLITS AT THE SEAMS IN MORE THAN 4 PLACES. COLOR IS LOST AND THE BOTTLE NEVER GETS THE WHOLE PRODUCT. THIS IS THE SECOND AND LAST TIME I EVER BUY THIS AGE DEFY COLOR AGAIN

No, I don’t recommend this product.

Terrible color

I bought this product mostly to cover my grays. The product was left on for 45 minutes, but absolutely none of the color took to my grays. My hair was left soft and shiny, but offered nothing in the way of actually coloring ny hair.

No, I don’t recommend this product.

Color was true to the box, covered ALL the grays.

My 'real' color accoding to the box is Medium Brown(as in if you look on the back, it shows the color grid for your starting color - which my true color did match the Medium Brown on the their color grid and then of course plenty of grays - I'm 46 but started seeing gray in my 30's)anyway...the color that came out is the EXACT color they said it would come out. To my surprise a little darker than I'd like it to be, but the box was correct. This is the only color I've ever used that made my hair 'better' after coloring. The pre-treat is awesome!!! As long as I can keep getting it at the store, I'm hooked! Grays covered and they delivered!!! Of course going to go with Medium or Light Blonde next time around. :) Thanks Clairol!!!

Yes, I recommend this product.

I love this product!!

I had a perm almost 5 months ago and my hair is fine but has been like straw ever since. This Age Defy and it's pre--treatment is the best thing I've done for myself in a long time. But the color turned out darker than I was hoping. My regular coloring was Nice n Easy with the Carmel color, but it's hard to find and harder on my hair. I will re-do my hair with a dark blond and will always use Age Defy. Thank you Miss Clairol!! Looking for the Pre Color product now.

Yes, I recommend this product.
