I got the 4 boxes and i opened one up to put on my hair - it looked a little different than usual because tube #2 looked clear gel instead of the white cream. Well the mix turned to the usual purple color it does when you first mix and I did do a strand test and the color was fine. I applied the first box. However, when I went to mix the second box (because I need two applications due to hair lenght) - the tube #2 came out light teracotta color to a dark brown color and the smell was like rotten eggs (before it was mixed with the developer). I opened the other 2 boxes and the same thing (Smelled funny and odd color) Now ***? I had only my roots covered with the ends needed coverage. Fortunately I had a box of color a shade darker I had bought out of a store and was able to blend as much of the lighter red as possible and hope the ends didnt grab the darker red too bad. Fortunately, I think it will come out ok. Except my scap is a little red right now from irritation of the chemicals (which was also more dramatic than usual). And my hair has a slight rotten egg odor. DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

This is a beautiful red color and fantastic price. This sells for $10 -$12 per box at drug stores. I used to get my hair colored at expensive salons and decided to give this a try -- so glad I did. Covers grey well and looks like a "real" red.
