I was wondering what experiences anyone had with spray on hair coloring. I understand Jerome Russell makes quite a few colors and is available at Walgreens. It is used just for fun and even to put in honey or blonde highlights or if you want to be dramatic you can add pink and blues and other color streaks. My question is does it change the origial color of ones hair after the 4 to 6 weeks it is suppose to wash out.

Wow, what a blast from the past, well, for me anyway. I've used it, but it was 20 years or so ago, back in high school, and I never seemed to have a problem washing it out. Of course, I was only allowed to use it for one day too. I've got very dark hair and other than when I applied it, my natural hair color always came back. My daughter (who also has dark hair) has used the newer formulations, and would keep it in her hair for days. Again, never saw a problem, other than she'd have to really scrub her scalp. I think that if you've got lighter hair that is already processed-a blond with highlights already could expect their hair to take on some of the pigments from a new color, like red, blue, green or black. Are you thinking about trying it?

scorpiobabes I don't remember it from years ago..just around Halloween lol. Now I see so many girls with the different colors..I have grey hair and whenever I mention dying it everyone even the girlwho cuts my hair, tells me not to because it is a great color. However, I would like to see some blond streaks but am afraid to try anything permanent...I used to be an ash blonde but not now.

My mom used to dye her hair all sorts of colors over the years, but as she grew older, she began slowly lightening it with ash blond high lights. When she finally stopped dying it, the change to her silvery hair was so subtle that I didn't even notice it! My hair is extremely dark, and I have a large number of white hair growing on the left side of my hair which is why I part it to the right! I did blond highlights for a couple of years, but after doing that for a year (and I only got them done twice a year!), I had more blond than brown and felt that I looked strange! You can get some semi-permanent hair color-I'd try a lighter ash blond so that it would barely appear as though you had anything done, or maybe even some ash blond high lights. That way, it'll last maybe 4 to 6 weeks, and if you don't like it, it'll go back to grey again. Good luck!

scorpiobabes TY..My father was prematurely white and at age 88 my Mom still had Dark hair with some grey, but from far off you couldn't tell she had any grey. Her friends couldn't believe she didn't dye her hair and it used to make her soooo mad that they didn't believe her..lol I always had highlights..we used to call it frosting.,.and I did that for years and years...Then I let it all grow out and had a salt pepper look but then it had more salt than pepper. I even reversed the process and had them put in dark highlights for a few years. Then I just got tired of the whole process and everyone said it was a gorgeous sliver/white/gray color and don't touch it so I didn't. But now I think I want a change but not one where I have to be a slave to going to the hairdresser. I thought about the ash blond highlights...I used to be all ash blond...I called it dish water blond..lol I have no idea why..Thanks for your comments

i don't have any experience with this product. i don't think i would like it very much. i might spray it into my eyes, ears, or on my clothing. i would rather have one of those compacts with colors with brush where you brush on the color on your hair. it dosen't come off until you shampoo your hair. i would prefer that.

I have not used that kind before, but I have used I think it is called SPLAT or something like that. You bleach your hair first when using that stuff. It washes out, but since you have to bleach your hair to get it to show up your hair is that bleached color with a hint of whatever color you originally used. From what I understand the stuff you are talking about is just supposed to shampoo out.
