Hair Color Review — ONC Natural Colors

ONC Natural Colors 3N Natural Dark Brown
ONC Natural Colors 3N Natural Dark Brown

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!

Easy Ways To Get Fun, Colored Hair!

Happy Labor Day!  I hope you’re off today and enjoying it.

My daughters love to play with bright color in their hair.  I always want to try it, but I need temporary ways to do it!

A couple of cool ideas are colored hair chalk and colored extensions.  I was sent the follow products for my honest review, and they are really fun!

Splat Hair Chalk

Splat Hair Chalk (approx. $5.99 USD)– the easiest way to add pastel color to your hair. The chalk slides on dry and instantly adds just the right touch of color. The compact is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand so it is easy to hold onto and apply to hair. The result is soft color that is easy to brush, curl or style after application and is easily washed out with shampoo! The applicator sponge is included for easy application close to your hair-line or when applying color to your braid.

What I think:  I’ve tried colored sprays and liquids before, but this is the first time I have tried hair chalk.  I have dark brown hair and luckily this worked for me.  I applied the color above, sugar plum, with the chalk and the enclosed sponge on my thumb and ran the color through my hair.  I applied it to the ends of my hair and really like the effect! There are a bunch of colors to choose from, too.
