MIDDLE-AGED MEN WITH GREYING HAIR MUST BE CAREFUL TO NOT COLOR HAIR TOO DARK OR ELSE IT LOOKS EITHER LIKE A TYPICAL "DYE-JOB" OR A TOUPEE.

FROM EXPERIMENTING WITH SEVERAL COLORS, I DISCOVERED THAT LIGHT-MEDIUM BROWN DOESN'T GIVE THAT DREADED 'TOO-DARK-PAINTED PHONY APPEARANCE BUT INSTEAD REMOVES ALMOST 90+% OF THE GRAY LEAVING HAIR LIGHT ENOUGH TOO APPEAR MORE NATURAL...SOMETIMES THE TOP HAIR MAY APPEAR ALMOST SLIGHTLY "BLONDISH" IN NATURAL LIGHT...AS IF THE SUN MAY HAVE "BLEACHED" THE HAIR A BIT.
HAIRDRESSER TIP: IF TOO DARK, WASH HAIR WITH 'JOY' DISHWASHING DETERGENT...IT WILL LIGHTEN THE DYED HAIR JUST ENOUGH TO MAKE IT LOOK MORE 'NATURAL' AGAIN. IF IN DOUBT WHICH COLOR TO USE, START LIGHTER AT FIRST THEN GO TO A DARKER SHADE IF NECESSARY...ALSO TRY LEAVING LIGHTER PRODUCT ON HAIR LONGER [UP TO 10 MINUTES] SO THE DYE WILL PENETRATE DEEPER AND DYE DARKER. THE "JOY" SOAP CAN ALWAYS CORRECT ANY "OVER-DYE."
"JUST FOR MEN" PRODUCTS DELIVER ON THEIR PROMISES...QUICK...EASY...LONG LASTING THROUGH MANY HAIR WASHES [WITH SHAMPOO]. RECOMMEND APPLYING PRODUCT IN SHOWER TO MAKE JOB EASIER AND LESS MESSY...THE SHOWER SPRAY WATER WILL CLEAN-UP ANY DYE SPATTER....WHETHER ON YOU OR THE SHOWER WALLS, FLOOR, ETC. ENJOY YOUR NEW FOUND YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE GUYS!

Have used dark blonde/lightest brown product for years and years after wanting a little better coloring than the Sandy Brown product offered. Your former product was superb - good, consistent coloring every time. Best yet, very few believed I even used hair dye because the color was SO natural.

Then you decided to reformulate the product, and even started featuring much younger men on the boxes. Trouble is this new product is an absolute dud. Coverage is inconsistent at absolute best, and where the color does work, it is a much darker shade than previously.

But worse is how un-natural the new color looks. I now literally look like some rank amateur trying to color his own hair but not having a clue how to do it right.

WHY, WHY, WHY would you change such a good product???? I found some old boxes on the internet, but they won't last forever. Take a clue - find out what you did wrong and fix it - you ruined a good product.

                I hope some of the JFM experts or community can help me. I've been using the original formula (H35) for about 6 months. Initially after I color my hair it's perfect. Looks like me 30 years ago. However in as little as a week, I noticed it's beginning to fade and as it fades it's almost a greenish tint to my hair. (It's that icky he had a bad dye job green, not that he's too old to sport that color green)

                I use a Suave for men two in one conditioning shampoo daily...

                Hope to get some advice.

                Thanks

                      You can control the lightness or darkness, by less or greater than 5 minutes. If you take a shower and shampoo your hair, then dry it and wait a couple of hours, then go die it and shower again, it will end up very dark and cover all the grey (I'm totally grey). If you don't use this until after a couple of days of letting your hair get naturally oily, you have to let it stay on longer or your grey gets a mixed color look--actually some might like this as it looks more like natural greying--I prefer this look. If you use the lightest to dark blonde colors, your hair will look very blonde after two weeks, and people will think you are the President--yup, happened to me. If you are totally grey, best to stick to light brown or darker. If you go too dark, there is too much variation after several weeks and people begin to notice the difference. The newer colors look more natural now. 10 years ago, the colors were too fake looking, especially as they wore out--way too orange looking, especially in the sun. Now, not so bad.
