U Color by Umberto Beverly Hills

Yes, I am very cheap. Ever since I moved to Kansas City from Portland, OR (and left my friend and hair stylist), I have been coloring my own hair. I realized fast that without my half-off friend discount, salon color and highlights are very expensive. So I am always looking for an effective way to color my grays.

Umberto Beverly Hills U Color Italian Demi Color ($12.00) is the all-in-one color, developer and equalizer in a sachet packet system ready-to-apply directly to hair. Available in 12 hair color shades.
Kit includes:

  • 2 Sachet Packets, each with Color, Developer and Equalizer
  • Latex Gloves
  • Mini Detail Brush
  • Illustrated InstructionsThis hair color is so easy to use. Fold the packet so that color is sandwiched between the developer and equalizer. SNIP (cut along the dotted line), SQUEEZE (directly onto dry hair), SMOOSH (as if you were shampooing)! Distribute evenly through hair, process for 25 minutes. Rinse, shampoo, and condition as usual. You can also use the traditional bottle or bowl methods.
  • What I think: The shades seem to come out a bit darker than what’s in the package. I tried the Light Chestnut Brown which matched my dark brown hair well and my teenage daughter colored her strawberry blond hair Light Copper Gold and it turned out a bright Auburn. It is a very pretty color that is even all over.
     
    I think that this is a great bargain for the quality. Try it, your hair will look gorgeous!
