*I received a product sample to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
I started by checking out the color options on the website. I knew I wanted to go a little darker but I couldn't decide which color to go with. Luckily the website offers a survey that helps you build your Hair Profile on Madison Reed and pick out a color that's right for you. I took this survey and while it narrowed the choices down for me, I still couldn't choose.
Madison Reed also offers a personal hair color consultation by phone, email or chat. You can call the Color Crew for custom recommendations at 1.888.550.9586. I chose to send over an email and received a reply very quickly. I answered some questions about my hair and the color I'm looking for. I also sent over a picture of my current hair color. Once I was comfortable with my choice, I placed my order.
I mixed the hair color according to the directions and applied it to my hair using the gloves included in the kit. These aren't flimsy plastic gloves that slide off your hands these were sturdy and stayed put!
I set the timer on the app you can download... It has voice-controlled step-by-step instructions and is pretty cool! One thing I really noticed while waiting to rinse my hair is the lack of that strong chemical smell. I mean hair dye that actually smelt.... Good. Wow!
When the timer beeped I rinsed out the dye and washed my hair with the included shampoo and conditioner. Awesome products as well by the way, I love the short ingredient list and generous sample sizes. I blow dried my hair and... I love it! The color is perfect and looks so natural.
My hair looks and feels healthy. It was just dark enough and not too dark. I'm in love with the product and the experience. No more drugstore hair dyes for me!
