Good

99p!

Doesn't make much of a difference straight away.

It was during the summer that I wanted to experiment with the colour of my hair, and so off I trekked to my local Superdrug to plunge into the never ending depths of the hair colour isle. What should I choose? Vibrant copper? Electric blue? Bubble gum pink? Then there was the dilemma of wash in...

Only wish there was a larger range of colours

Since Wella stopped producing Shaders and Toners wash in, wash out colourants, I have been on the lookout for a brand that would provide the same standard of colouring. Upon seeing Colour Effects on the Superdrug website for just £1.29 I figured 'what the heck! Let's give it a go!' For that price...

Lovely sleek shiny hair

Does not cover grey

I always swore I was going to grow old gracefully, not for me 'Botox' injections, never would I put my 'Boobs' under a surgeon's knife, not in a million years would I resort to a 'Bum' lift and I was going to go grey in a distinguished way!!!!! Sadly the reality is that the wrinkles are rapidly...

If only it didn't wash out!!

I had been dying my hair for a few months with semi-permanent hair dye by Loreal (as previously reviewed) to get my hair from grown out golden blonde back to light brunette. But, since I've had it back brown, I've become hungrier to get it to a nice shade of auburn... I love auburn/red tinted...

I used this frequently on my bleached blonde hair to add cool ash tones. I get shade 8.1 (cool blonde) which after being left on for 10-20 minutes once or twice a week during my hairwashing process, leaves my hair not only with the desired shade highlights (often turning brassy or coppery shades...

My hair is naturally a dark brown, but i've had so many blonde highlights put in it, it is officially blonde. I wanted to see if i wanted to go brunette again, so i decided i would buy a wash in wash out dye. I used the colouring before, but only when i had brown hair to put a tint of red in it...

cheap, smelled nice, lots more than 3 applications

no huge noticeable difference

I recently dyed my hair blonde and purchased the Superdrug cool blonde colour as a back up option in case the colour wasn't bright enough. My colour was a golden blonde with orangey undertones so i thought i would try using the cool blonde colour on it. On the bottle it says to lather on wet hair...

My hair is naturally blonde and a while ago I dyed it red with permanent colour. After a few months I got fed up of re applying it for the roots so I thought I'd try ths stuff to just blend them away. The first time you use it, there isn't a huge amout of difference but if you use it every time...

“Warm Chocolate Brown”

Nice even colour

Took 30 minutes to have an effect

I went into Superdrug hoping to dye my medium brown hair darker with a bit of a red tinge to it. I decided I would try a wash in wash out hair dye just to see whether I liked the colour. I chose this because it was cheap and the colour (warm chocolate brown) sounded appealing. I got home and...

“Colour Effects Dye”

Cheap (only 99p), Smells Great, No Allergies

Doesn't Work With Very Dark Hair

I have black hair and REALLY wanted a change so I thought if I get wash-in-wash-out hair dye it will give me a taster of a new colour. So I set out to my local superdrug to take a look at the dyes available. I went with my friend (who has blonde hair) and we both bought the "True Chesnut Colour...

I had purchased a bottle of Superdrug Colour Effects in Rich Warm Brown. I hadn't used it until last weekend when I had a very unfortunate dye disaster (please take into consideration I refrained from using the bad pun 'Dye-lemma'!!) with Clairol Perfect 10 - which I will write a review on once...

When i first brought this product i brought the 'cool chocolate brown', (my hair is dark-mid brown) it gave a bit of a change to my hair but not very noticable. I then used the mahogany one, it really worked and changed my hair to a browny-red colour, i still use it today! It smells nice, dosent...

Not for me

published 17/09/2008

I am sorry to say that I would not recommend this shade to other potential dyers. The dye (warm chocolate brown) added red shades to my light brown hair which did not suit me and wasn't what I expected. Also, the dye takes a long time to wash out. I have washed my hair thirteen times since dyingit and the red tone is still lingering!!! So, take heed......if you aren't looking for ginger/red tones don't use this shade!

Depending on how blonde your hair is, i would recommend getting your hair stripped and then waiting a while to do your hair brown, this will most likely produce the best results. I speak from experience! :)

Hiya, Yeah dying your hair for the first time a dark colour can be quite drastic. Its best to go gradually darker so that you get used to the colour change. This also prevents any bizare colour changes. =)
