Default Silk Elements Semi-Permanent Hair Color?

Has anyone in here used this?

Its on sale and for the price I really want to just try it. I was really happy with this brands conditioners. They made my hair shine enough that people noticed and asked what it was. Its marketed for ethnic hair but works well on my naturally wavy/curly hair. (the conditioning treatments)


I liked what I saw for color selection online. They look like some nice natural browns.

Anyway...I could only find reviews for the perm version in this line.
If anyone knows where there may be more reviews post that too.

Thanks!

The dye:
Silk Elements - Silk Elements Semi-Permanent Hair Color Dark Warm Brown

The conditioner I really liked:
Silk Elements - Silk Elements Megasilk Moisture Treatment 16 oz.

(they do have small 99 cent packs too if you want to try it)

Ok well so I tried it. I ended up buying the black because that was what was in stock at my local sally's.
I let it sit as directed and did not apply heat or a head wrap just to see if it would grab the white hair.

I love this color. Its not a goth black but just a rich deep brown.
The only place it had issue grabbing color was at my temple where even perm color sometimes doesn't grab.
Since its a demi I re-applied it there and gave it a blast of heat as directed for more holding power.
Totally took.

Since it is marketed for ethnic hair, it may of been why it did not come out as dark as pictured.
But its a really nice brown.
It also added that same glass shine that their conditioners add. Its combating frizz nicely and doesn't feel dry at all.
It actually feels more glossy and I didn't even follow it up with a deep conditioner as I wanted to test out if it made my hair dry.

Definite repurchase.

I have washed it a couple times and it hasn't instantly washed out but it looks like it will fade nicely.

My base color: virgin hair, medium ash brown mixed with blonde and white here and there
Skin tone: Neutral, prone to look sallow with the certain hair colors. (too warm or too cool)

If you have hair to your chin and thick I would get at least two bottles. It sort of acts like a conditioner and the hair drinks it in.

I got it on my scalp too. No irritation for me.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnd of course sallys no longer carries it. I swear this is like a curse for me. I always find the perfect dark brown and then it goes away. Found it on amazon though. Would prefer to just be able to grab it at the store. Maybe a local family store carries it. SO MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
