Advanced Gray Solution Semi Permanent Hair Color is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ever for roots! I have medium brown hair with a little gray (for 50 years old). Because of my hair color, it shows a lot at the part and I particularly hate that I have it at my temples. I use demi-permanent color about every 6-8 weeks and I use this product at about the 3rd (and sometimes again on the 5th/6th week), when my roots start to show. I use this product along my part line and around my face to cover the gray as it grows out in those areas. Since I have blondish highlights, I have tried using a lighter shade than my natural color, but going a shade darker works better for me, since my roots are naturally a little darker. I just apply this product to that one inch (or less) along my hair line (around my face) and on the hair right around my part and it covers the grey that has come in. I do leave it on longer than recommended, but this is a very mild product, so no problem with that. This product lets me use the more serious chemical product (the demi-permanent) much less frequently. I absolutely love this product! I put it on my hair as described, I cover with a supermarket bag (just so that I don't ruin my house/clothing), and work around the house or exercise for a bit. After about 3/4th the time, I push/spread the color down a little (I just push against he plastic bag to move the color down the hair shaft) so that I don't get a line. That's what I do. I hope my amateurish (supermarket bag) method doesn't offend the professionals, but I have great results and have been using this along with the demi permanent for quite a while. Try it! Start light—you can always go darker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price, nice color. I bought this for subtle grey coverage knowing it would fade. I normally am not too concerned about grey hairs. I am 42 and don't have many, but I have enough that they are starting to stick out and frizz up. My aging dark brown hair looks dry and lighter in color than it normally was, giving it a washed out appearance because of the grey. I was going to just let my hair go grey and when it was well under way, I was going to heavily frost it and use a toner since the silver trend is in, even for young people. I'm not ready to give up my dark hair and not enough greys are in, but I did NOT want to use a permanent dye on my natural hair. I cannot stand the way any kind of permanent colorant feels on my hair. It is not merely because it is dry. "People say "You just need a good conditioner". The texture is actually okay while my hair is dry. It is when it is wet that I cannot stand the feel of permanent colorant in my hair. t sticks together and it is hard to shampoo... feels like doll hair. I have gone very, very short numerous times after being compelled to cut the dye out of my hair. Thus, I opted for a semipermanent for photos and times I want to go somewhere. It looked great but the walnut was a little warm, and far from being too dark. This is why I also ordered the espresso. I will try that next. It did cover the grey but started fading after just a couple of washes. After a few weeks the color has not completely faded except on most of the grey, but if I wanted to dress up or something, I would need to reapply. Some of the grey is still more subtle than it was, but the best day was the first day after application and I just wish that lasted a bit longer. The feel, the texture... is fine. My hair still feels quite natural. Again, it looked great. The smell is not bad. It's very convenient for root touch ups, the top of the head, etc.... without doing a full dye job, so the commitment is not huge. For pictures or a night out, this serves it's purpose, but it is very hard to hide grey. I am not displeased, and for a bargain, I still have many applications because of the sale. My hair had no colorant on it whatsoever. I have dyed and bleached my hair (long) before, and although bleaching dries the hair, nothing feels as plastic-like as permanent colorant, to me. I will continue using these bottles, which are very convenient for a quick color refresher. I left it on longer than instructed with no adverse effects. You can't use something like this to go lighter, but to enrich your color or try a shade darker, it's worth a go without the risks. I would have given it five stars if I could have been grey-free for at least 4 washes. Maybe others will have longer results and maybe as I reapply I will have longer lasting results if it has any accumulative effects. All in all, I'm certainly glad I bought it and have something to reach for a quick touch up any time I want to look especially nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6G Lt. golden chestnut Used this color and have red hair, not Chestnut. This should be renamed Auburn, not Chestnut not brown with gold tones. Going to try Hazelnut next wish me luck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not cover my white hairs Used as instructed, left on about 30 minutes and my grey looks just like before. Does not work!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product but didn't cover my greys The re owes said it blends away greys but that wasn't my experience. Tried it twice on my brownroots with 40% grey and no coverage. Left it in an hour the second time. Nice product if you want to add some colour and shine but not for grey on my hair

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected I bought this product because I have been looking for a semi permanent hair color that could be used on relaxed hair. The color was good for 2 weeks but turned my grey hair a greenish color. I probably won't buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clairol Advanced Gray Semi Permanent Hair Color I have been using this product and color for the last 7 years and it's the closes match to my natural hair color. I would rate it a 5 but the color only last two weeks for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I was a level 7 brassy dark blond permanent color with salt and pepper roots over an inch long. Chai tea did an amazing job! I picked that shade because it's ash, according to the bottle, and extra effective on gray hair. I applied it on the clean roots, about 2 inches worth, for 50 minutes, then spread it everywhere in the shower for a few minutes distributing it evenly. The result is gorgeous, a natural brown, and very soft. I did condition the ends after, and used cold water to rinse right at the end. Going to use this product from now on. Might try a different shade eventually. I'm growing out my gray salt and pepper hair to see what it'll look like long like that, and this will get me there beautifully with healthy hair.

I have all white hair coming in. I am tired of dying (medium golden brown) as the white roots show up (within a week!) and am ready to transition to my natural white. Would you recommend using this product for such a transition?

Asked by: ReadytoGoGray
Just like you, I had grey roots within 2 weeks of coloring my hair. I got advice from a professional and I took a path of "reverse" coloring. I got a cap at Sally's and pulled hair through to achieve streaks using a very very light color, almost blonde. This allowed the dark line to become softer as my hair grew. My hair grows quickly, I was into all grey in 10 months.

Should you wash your hair before coloring

Asked by: Barbara55
Hello, Barbara55, you should wash your hair before coloring your hair with Advanced Gray Solution Semi Permanent Hair Color. The product covers the gray very nicely. Otherwise, the color won't adhere to the hair and definitely will dry out your hair. The second time I used the product, I couldn't recall the instructions and I used on dry hair and 98 percent, if not all of the product rinsed right out. The instructions also says to wash hair first. Don't forget to rinse thoroughly after coloring. Also, be sure to upkeep with a color protect/color safe, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.

I am using 6nw permanent color in well a. She wants to grow hair out to grey. I was thinking of using semi permanent color with no peroxide or amoniaa as it is growing out? How do I use clarion 6n semi permanent..hazelnut? Do u think that would work?

Asked by: Annie6226
Even though it's a semi-permanent color, it still colors the hair and the grey roots do show when hair begins to grow. Don't think its right product for growing out grey.

I have had allergic reaction to permanent hair dye  Is this product safe for me to use ?

Asked by: Cindy 122
I wish I could give you some good advice but I have no allergies to hair dye and this hair color product does not irritate my scalp at all.  Test a small patch of skin somewhere before you use it.

I have med brown hair and 30% scattered gray.  i want to lighten to an ash blonde/brown and cover gray. how do i do that. if not possible can i color the hair and then highlight it over the brown? what shade of b brown can i use - the lightest possible pl

Asked by: beckydog
So many people complain that dye has turned their hair brassy or orange. They are attempting to put light hair dye over dark hair. You cannot do that. You might get some lifting of your natural color, but if you do get any lifting of the color at all with a temporary dye, it will bring out the red tones that you cannot see in dark hair. That's why you have to use something stronger to lift all the dark and red tones out THEN put the color down. You had the good sense to ask, but many people rate a product (good products, too) very lowly because they think they were color-cheated, when in fact it is a mistake (with any brand) to try to go a cool lighter color from a darker shade.
