Advanced Cosmetics Technolgies Hair Color Kit
I have been trying to find an all natural hair color that will add shine and cover a few grays. Henna was very messy to apply and rinse off and it didn't cover any gray, so I decided to try Advanced Cosmetic's "permanent hair color". It was much easier to apply, but nearly impossible to rinse out. The directions tell you to rinse until the water runs clear. I did that, several times and there is still product stuck in my hair. I have washed it out 5 times using a comb to try to rake it through. It may be more difficult for me because I have curly hair, but after 5 washes, it is still not completely out. My hair feels stiff and straw like. I do not recommend this product.
Thanks Annie for writing about your experience with Advanced Cosmetics Technologies Natural Hair Color. It's a shame you did not experience good results.
The ingredients for this product sound great. They are 100% plant based so it is is minus all the problem ingredients like ppd, resorcinol, ammonia, parabens etc. This is a deposit only product so it will not lighten hair color.
The coloring kit comes with a two part hair color system, stain blocker and applicator bottle with comb top. They have a video on their site that shows application by first applying bottle one first to roots and then all over and adding heat. It is shown being used in a salon so unless you have an at home hair dryer you will have to improvise with a blow dryer.
Leave on for 5 minutes then apply second product and heat for 10 minutes then allow product to set for 25 more minutes. Rinse, shampoo and condition. They also provide a semi permanent shampoo and conditioning kit plus a color fixative kit.
As I researched Advanced Cosmetics Technologies on 12/11 I noticed that all reviews I found dated back to 2008-2009. Even visiting their facebook page turned up very little as it appears to not have been updated since 2010 which has me wondering.
Despite the negative review and with so little to go on I plan on ordering this product to check it out. I will keep you informed about the results.
In the meantime, check out a product that is similar to this one and also contains very safe
ingredients. It's called Palette by Nature. You can read about it and see my review of it on natural hair color
