INGREDIENTS

The Science & Ingredients

Our ammonia-free Natural Instincts system with coconut oil nourishes and protects your hair with clinically proven healthier color*. The antioxidant properties prevent the formation of highly reactive, damaging molecules by helping to inactivate the metal ions that cause their formation. This leads to hair color that’s actually healthier-looking than before you colored!

Been using this dye for almost 20 years now.

I've been dying my hair since I was 16 because I really don't love my natural haircolor. Since my mom insisted I not use a permanent dye, I picked up Natural Instincts. I've tried other dyes every once in a while, but none compared to the quality of what I'm used to with this brand. I like that when it fades/grows out, I get a natural soft fade instead of harsh line at my roots, and when it fades everywhere else it's just a rich deep brown highlight. That said, the coverage is fantastic, I'm just a bit lax when it comes to upkeep. I've been using the same color for about 20 years now, and the only way I'll stop is if they discontinue it. I started going gray in my early 20s and it worked great at covering that up as well. I also really appreciate that unlike almost every other beauty product I've loved and used throughout the years, they're one of the few that's never reformulated it to give it a new weird smell. Thank you Clairol!

Yes, I recommend this product.

The perfect solution!

After dying my hair red for about a year with various permanent dyes, I decided to get back to my natural color, which is a dark blonde/very light brown. Didn't want to just cut it short and grow out the color, because my hair grows very slowly. It has been a process -- vitamin c treatments to remove some of the red pigment, bleach, ash dyes applied in attempt tone down the orange. I had managed a decent color, light blonde in parts and a slightly darker, more strawberry blonde underneath -- lighter than my natural color. Natural Instincts in 7 (Dark Blonde) covered my bleached hair PERFECTLY. The color is pretty close to my natural shade and it turned out so evenly, despite the fact that there was sort of a mish-mash of shades left behind after bleaching. A Godsend! For anyone going through a similar process, Natural Instincts is THE best drugstore product for the final step. This will blend with my roots very well and I can touch it up as needed without worrying about too much damage. (For the record, I applied it to damp hair and left it on for 12 minutes after a strand test.)

Yes, I recommend this product.

This basically turned my hair jet black! Hair was silky after usage though, didn't notice any damage. Some places were still uneven, so I recommend using a generous amount. Smell isn't completely terrible but it is strong.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Love it!

I chose this color because I have natural red tones in my hair already. I Loved the color on the box and I know, you are not supposed to think that your hair will turn out the same as on the box, but, IT DID! I was honestly shocked. I loved how the smell did not over power me. I love that it only took 10 minutes to color. I love that my hair is soft and doesn't feel like I have just colored it. I do not have any negatives about this product and I would recommend it to anyone who is busy and looking for fast beautiful color.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Wonderful hair color

I received the Clairol Natural Instincts for free from Clairol, I Love this Product. It looks very natural on my hair and I would have washed my hair 10 times and it looks amazing. I would definitely buy this product again and recommend everyone to try this. I have spoken to my friends and family about this and they are all interested to try this product.

Hair Color for Commitmentphobes

The idea of a temporary hair color was appealing to me in terms of being able to try colors that are out of my comfort zone- If I hated the color, I just had to wait a few weeks for the color to wash out- however I had never found a temporary hair dye that I liked. I had tried a few before- some were to chemically overpowering, some were made with chemicals I refused to put on my head, and others just came in bizarre shades. So when I was given the chance to try out Clairol Natural Instincts I jumped at the chance- I already love the Clairol brand- its a brand I trust- so I figured it was worth a try. I am glad I did. The application was easy, the smell wasn't overpowering, and the process wasn't overly time consuming. The color distributed easily in my hair and I liked the color shade it added to my hair. I also loved how the product didn't dry out my hair, and there is extra conditioner in the box which lasts for more than one application. My hair was soft and smooth and manageable even immediately after coloring my hair- which is extremely rare for a hair coloring product! The only negative I could say about this product was that its claim to last 28 washes isn't exactly true. I would say more like 15 washes- though to me, this honestly wasn't a problem. I was happy with this. Like I said, I feel like temporary hair coloring products are for trying out colors you don't want to be stuck with- not as a permanent solution. So if you are someone who likes to change their hair color constantly, or just wants to try out a shade, Clairol Natural Instincts is for you!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I'm in Love with my haircolor!

I have colored my hair for the past 15 years and have tried many different haircolor brands. I usually do the permanent color but had never tried the natural instincts line from clairol. For starters, the packaging is very nice and reflects the nature theme. Evrything inside was package neatly and looked very professional. It is a simple 2 step process for the color psrt, you just mix the color enhancing colorant in the color activating cream and give it a couple tilts to mix and apply. It went on easy and one bottle covered my entire head. What I loved the most about this was the scent lol I know it sounds a little crazy but I went around asking my family to smell my haircolor while it was processing. It smells AMAZING! Its like a fruity scent and the conditioner smells like coconut. Anyway, the package says to leave it for 15 min but i always leave mines for a min of 25. Then i rinsed and conditioned. The conditioner helps make your strands soft and the color is vibrant and gorgeous. Mines was the Navajo Bronze which starts of looking a little redish but warms up to a dark brown because my natural hair color is jet black. Still, it lightened every strand leaving a beautiful warm hue perfect for summer. Thank you Clairol! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
