Hi all! I was recently sent a box of ONC Natural Colors 3N Natural Dark Brown ($24.95 USD) for my honest review. I do color my hair at home (cover those grays) — and I enjoying trying new brands.
This is a natural, healthier, hair color that contains a spectrum of 29 shades. Since it’s pH is low, it holds both hair color and hair care in one bottle. The claims of this product are:
“NATURALCOLORS is the healthier hair color dye with certified organic ingredients and perfect gray coverage. It is applied using heat to open the cuticles. This method protects the hair from damaging, unhealthy ammonia used in chemical color dye to open the cuticle. The pH value of NATURALCOLORS is much lower than chemical color dyes and many “natural” hair colors dyes. After rinsing the hair’s pH value is closer to a neutral value. The scale layer of the hair, the cuticle, is closed, and the color does not fade, providing a more natural, permanent solution.”
This was a bit more complicated to use than other hair dyes. You apply to scalp, then cover with a plastic hair cap and blow dry for 10 minutes. Then remove the cap, apply the rest of the product to the hair and let sit for 20 more minutes. I have to be honest, I didn’t stand in my bathroom for 10 minutes drying my scalp. But I did it for a few minutes and did wait the whole 10 before applying the rest of the product.
I like that this didn’t sting or stain my skin. It smelled nice, too. The shade I bought was the third darkest shade after Black and Darkest Brown. My hair is dark brown, so I thought Dark Brown would match. It was almost black! But after a few days, it wore down to my natural Dark Brown. And, it covered my gray really nicely.
I really liked the results with this. My hair was dark and shiny. And I was happy to use natural hair dye without all of the chemicals. Plus the color has stayed fresh for weeks!
