    eSalon Color

    i went on here just to see what others thought of this product. I've been coloring my hair for 20+ years, several of those years were with very high end stylists at $200-$300 a visit. Life changed.... I have several beautician friends (who i can't aford to see right now) who all begged and pleaded that i not "ruin my hair" with "box color". Despite their begging, i went to the drug store and bo...read moreught a well-reviewed brand, colored my hair and hated it. I forgot how flat and one dimensional box color makes your hair. I somehow came across eSalon and thought i'd give it a shot. I was looking to take my dark blonde, with light highlights to more of a coppery tone. I went through, did all the questions etc... ordered my first box. Package came, makes you feel a little special since it's made "just for you" and has your name all over it. Eventhough we all know it's just a gimic. No problems with application, it was stinky, but no more than any other box color i've ever used in the past. I didn't love the end result because it didn't dye evenly over the previous box color fiasco... Stylist friends gave it the thumbs up and blamed the box color for the uneven result. i decided to give it another shot and this time i really loved the color. I use salon color safe shampoo and conditioner still color fades a little more quickly than i would like, although that's to be expected with any red tones. I have now used it a few times, The customer service is great and they really do work with you to try to get the color right for you, and delivered around the right time. I'm not in love with the product. It gives more depth and dimension than typical box color. If i had a choice, finances aside, i would go to the posh salon and get it done right; however, i much rather this color than anything that i could get in a "cheap" salon or in a drugstore. — 19 hours, 52 minutes ago

    Vile ammonia feast that will ruin your hair, eyes, and lungs

    I had high hopes for this hair color, and I probably should have waited until I have at least shampooed my hair once after the coloring, but man, I can't wait. It is enticing, to be able to formulate your own color, to get it delivered to your door step, and look exactly as you have envisioned. With me, this ha been the case only partially. Yes, you cjoose the color, yes it is easy, yes, it arri...read moreves in a lovely box, well packaged, with all the bottles clearly labeled, and a little gift inside. I was really looking forward to the coloring experience, but it turned out to be hell. I wish I had a paramedic team on stand by for this. The ammonia in the hair color is so strong, that my throat closed up. I had to run out of the bathroom every other time to take a breath of air. It was a chemical assault, and I am not a wuss. The bathroom, even with a door wide open, turned into a gas chamber. That was part one of the experience, the part that had to do with the roots. Part two was a different mix that was designed to give the ends a lighter, ombre color. While the roots were processing, the mix was supposed to be waiting. So I watche a bit of TV before getting back into the bathroom. And boy, was I surprised. I thought part one of the experience was horrendous, this part was even worse! The mix was so potently vile and stinky that it probably could be used for tear gas. My eyes were burning, tears were running down my cheeks, I applied the color as quickly as I possibly could and ran out of the bathroom. Surprise number three awaited in the shower itself. The haircolor mixture turned my already dry-ish hair to hay. I could barely get shampoo out of my hair. The dryness could only be masked with tons of conditioner. The Esalon hair color just might have ruined my hair to the point of no return. And I did specify in the answers to the questionnaire that my hair is dry from the middle to the ends of the hair. Apparently, no one really reads these questionnaires since the end result is really bad damage. This has been my experience with this hair color. I have never had a color this bad in my entire life. And I used a lot of boxed pharmacy-type hair color. Esalon takes the cake. What a pity. The concept is great. — 4 days, 21 hours ago

    ESalon Color

    Color turned out just as great as a salon could do, saving me approximately $800.00 per year. I have blonde hair which is hard to color with store bought brands. — 6 days, 11 hours ago

    Love this product!

    I have been using esalon for about 6 months now. I can honestly say that this is the most satisfied I have ever been with my hair color. It covers my gray while giving my vibrant color that lasts between colorings. I have had more compliments on my color with esalon than I ever had with professional coloring or store bought products. — 1 week, 4 days ago

    eSalon Hair Color

    I have been a devoted member for at least 5 years and I will go with NO ONE ELSE!!! My hair is thick and course and plenty of grey, and I prefer a soft natural golden shiny blonde.....when I went to their website it was sooooo easy and they design a color JUST FOR YOU, " Lynda's color!" They also keep tight records of what you have been using in the past...the equipment they send is SALON DUPLIC...read moreATES...if you ever have ANY questions their staff is sooooooo friendly and patient in picking a color JUST FOR YOU!!! The color laaaaaasts, they give you shampoo & conditioner...eSalon is a HUGE SECRET your colorist or stylist DOES NOT WANT U TO KNOW ABOUT...LOL!!! Feel free to call me as I AM A DEVOTED CUSTOMER...NOW, with that being said, the ONLY problem I have is that they DON'T ACCEPT Discover Card....hopefully, that issue will change......otherwise....TRY eSalon, you'll NVR go with anyone else...oooh, BTW, their delivery time is within a few days....BRAVO!!! eSalon Loyally, Lynda August, 925-872-5463 — 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Great Product

    Excellent gray coverage. For the first time, my red hair does not look faded after 2 weeks. I use their color safe shampoo & conditioner as well as their color "glaze" once a week. When coloring your hair, be sure to do the last "shine" step. You add an equal amount of water to the color you have left & massage it in for 2-3 minutes. Nice folks to deal with too. — 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    eSalon at home color is the BEST!!!

    i have done esolon 3 times, starting at a dark blonde with ash and copper tones and now at a light brown with the ash and copper. The directions are clear but unusual - the last shine step is new but works. My advice is to try it, go through the process (after rinsing may feel dry but after the conditioner it will be great). Lotd of compliments, fade is nonexistent and covetage is awesome. The...read morey'll take uploaded photos to get a sense of your here and now and your goal.
