Touch of Gray Consumer Reviews
Does work a bit too good
By Keith from Portland, age 55, who has used Touch of Gray for the first time:
I read reviews prior to using this product so I knew it might make too much of a change.
I left the product on after covering all my hair for 90 seconds. Then washed it out as recommended.
The color is very natural - however the amount of gray covered very substantial. Can't imagine how it would have looked if I left it on the full 5 minutes.
Product needs to work slower.
Works Almost Too Good
By Nathan from Texas, age 50, who has been using Touch of Gray for six months:
My hair was about 40% grey and I wanted to reduce the amount of grey slightly before it got out of control. The product was easy enough to apply and, over the course of 3 days, pretty much removed all my grey. It looked natural enough, but worked a little bit too well. The old grey areas have a slightly different shade than the rest of my hair and looks almost like very subtle highlighting. Only problem is that over the course of those few days all my grey was removed and I'd really like to have a little bit left so that it wouldn't be so noticable for someone who hadn't seen me in a week. It takes about 3 weeks to get to the amount of grey I really wanted and then I have to start the process over after 6 weeks. I'm going to try some of the other products to find something that will be a little more subtle and allow me to keep the same shade consistently.
Works too fast
By Rob, age 59, who has been using Touch of Gray for one month:
I have silky, originally light brown hair, now 60% white. This product works but it colored my hair too quickly. I wish the change was more subtle and gave me better control over retaining grey in certain areas.
Touch of gray
By Nelson from New Jersey, age 73, who used Touch of Gray once:
Detailed review in one word Total Crap. Should be removed from sale everywhere.
By Rick from CT, age 58, who has been using Touch of Gray for six months:
I tried various men's products and then moved to women's products because they lasted longer. The hair looked unnatural because it was all one exact color, and also had a dull quality. Touch of Grey fixed that, it adds some color, but is not so radical. It's the first time I felt like my hair didn't look colored at all. I leave some grey in front and just color the rest and it works very well.
Poor quality product
By Joseph from Colorado, age 44, who has been using Touch of Gray for one month:
I tried this product despite its poor reviews on other review web sites. I should have listened to the other reviewers. For me, the product did not last more than a week before I had to apply more. Luckily I read from another reviewer that you can use the tube more than once by just capping it and making sure all the air is out of it. I have much better results with the products my wife buys, they last longer and provide more uniform color. Do yourself a favor and avoid wasting your money on this product.
Touch of Gray
By Robert from Michigan, age 62, who has been using Touch of Gray for 12 months:
This is absolutely the best product I have used for coloring gray hair. Resistant hair is colored well and it is easy to use, with no mixing. It lasts longer than it takes for my hair to grow out until the roots need treatment again. This is much better than any of the competitors.
Covered ALL Grey
By Harry, age 50, who used Touch of Gray once:
I used the "Medium Brown" version and it covered all of the grey which is not really what I wanted. Fortunately it lasts only about a month. Not sure why it completely removed all of my grey instead of just some of it as advertised.
By Larry B from MB, age 53, who has been using Touch of Gray for two weeks:
This is the first off the shelf product like this I've tried. In the past I've gone to a hair stylist that combed in color to give the salt and pepper look.
The problem with stylists are:
a) its not a technique most of the them know;
b) cost me around $50 a shot; and
c) the results were uneven - either sometimes resulting in not enough color or other times all one color with no gray.
I tried this once so far, and it did exactly what I'd hoped. It darkened my hair while leaving the gray. And it was absolutely natural looking. My wife and kids said they'd never guess it was colored.
The only negative so far is that the chemicals did slightly bother me the first day - but I guess they do at the stylists too. Plus the stuff can get messy unless your careful. Apply either shirtless or with something disposable.
But overall, the results were better and more natural looking at 1/8th the cost and 1/4th the time than they would be at the stylists.
Ah the money I could have been saving...
