What is it?
Clairol Professional Beautiful Collection Advanced Gray Solution Semi-Permanent hair color has no ammonia, no peroxide and is gentle enough to be used right after relaxing. With Advanced O2 Technology, this hair color provides intense gray coverage and works as a refresher for permanent hair color by adding luster to dull-looking hair. Advanced O2 Technology uses oxygen in the air to develop the color vs. heat or hydrogen peroxide. The end result is shiny, moisturized color with gray coverage that lasts up to 12 shampoos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting all over It’s easy to put on, and it lasts at least three weeks with no discernible change in color, anywhere – even around the edges. I like it a lot and I wish they would make it in more colors

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Partially Good Results I was looking for a "natural" shade of red, which this did accomplish where it covered my silvers and lightest greys from my hairline to the crown of my head. However, my darker grey hair in the back didn't take the color as well, and it washed out pretty quickly, leaving me with a two-toned red/brown overall look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Brown I love the rich brown color and shine that I see when I tried this color. I did not want a color that is dominated by red tones and 3W is the perfect brown for my skin tone. Looks very natural.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff. Pretty good stuff considering we can't get to the salons as easily these days. I don't know about 12 shampoos, seems a bit overstated. I like the formula, not heavy chemicals and peroxide burning your scalp. No build up like you get from permanent solutions too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New choice color I chose this color since COVID has affected the stock of color so I had to find another color and this was it and this color is perfect for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More orange than mahogany It's more orange than red or mahogany. Very disappointed. Color does stay for many washings. Won't buy this color again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lack of Color Choice-Did not Meet Color Expectatio It is REALLY DARK! I was advised by a Sally’s Customer Service Rep that this was the right color to cover my grays, and because I gave natural Afro texture hair, and was going for a golden brown color which is close to my natural color. This cams out SUPER DARK on my hair, and looks black, although my grays appear golden brown. Love Clairol products, but this advanced gray line offers VERY limited color options, so I am going to have to go with another brand. Also, because I prefer to put semi/demi permanent color on my natural hair to avoid damaging, unfortunately, Sally’s website has a very limited selection, and it is further unfortunate that a traditional person who doesn’t want some weird hair color like blue can’t find a better variety of traditional semi/demi permanent hair colors on the Sally’s website.

what does the N mean before a color? Also, I did use this once I love the color I got, but I can't remember which color I chose. I do not like any color that gives me hair a brassy or reddish tone. I like a medium brown color that is cool. Any suggestions

Asked by: Jennifer ch
Neutral. Buy tones that has N so hair won’t turn reddish or brassy.

I've colored my hair for years -- permanent color. Now my hair has gotten thin and sparse so I'm looking for a solution that is easy on my hair. Is semi permanent color easier on hair?

Asked by: Elizavideo
I've used only Clairol's semi-permanent hair color on my hair since I turned 40 three decades ago & have found it to be quite gentle on my hair. I've been using the Advanced Gray Solution in the past year and I like how it makes my hair look and feel .Plus, its easy to apply and process--- no noticeable hair loss or damage. I always use a color sealer after processing to protect my haircoloring & make it shine. Also, I usually add a product called Gray Magic to the hair dye ,before I apply it . It seems to make the color last longer.

after I color my scalp itches for 2 wk. I am not ready to go gray yet. would a semi-prem. take care of the issue? I have been coloring with a very dark brown. I am very gray.

Asked by: njoanh43
Yes, I would not dye my hair anymore, if you are just covering grays. Dyeing and lifting color damages hair a great deal. You are Blessed, because now you can just add pigment to those white hairs. I started going gray at 17. When your lose pigment in your hair, you also lose in your skin tone as well. So you should not try to stay your youthful hair color. You need to be lighter with your hair. With this product, since it will not lighten your hair that still has pigment, just coat it, you can now have highlights, without much effort! Since at this time it is your roots, maybe stick to a color with this product close to your shade. When the dyed hair has grown out long enough, then start experimenting with lighter shades for highlighted effects. This product should not disturb your scalp or skin. Be careful though because it will stain your skin and scalp for a day or so, if you don't wipe it off. It will also stain your sink, or counters. If that happens, just use household bleach, as leave a drop where it has stained and it will wipe off in a few minutes. Leave this product on your hair for a good two hours so it will last through many hair washings. After the two hours rinse your hair, until the water almost runs clear. Then shampoo a time or two, rinse until hair almost runs clear. Condition, again rinse until the water runs clear. If you keep rinsing until clear the results will not be the shade you may want, and be too light. Wrap in a dark towel, or a towel you don't care is stained a bit. Either natural dry or blow dry with whatever hair products. Make sure your hair is completely dry, so that this products sets, and won't rub off on your pillow case. If you are worried, sleep with an old towel on pillow to test that it has set properly. I hope this helps. It is a different way to live, but there will be no more damage to hair and scalp. =D

I have been using Clairol Beautiful Collection B11W. It comes in a copperish color bottle. Do you have this product? If so how do I order it?

Asked by: pigggyyy
The tones/colors on the Advanced formula are not the same as the Beautiful Collection. 3W Rich Walnut May be similar
