Revlon Colorsilk Hair Color Review, price, Before & After Pics
Shade – 4N Medium Brown
If you follow me in Insta, you would have noticed long back that I had quite a few products to test out and one of them was the Revlon Colorsilk hair color.
My gray hair compelled me to try hair colour and that opened the doors to hair colouring. I have used Loreal Casting Creme Gloss hair color in the past and I quite liked it. Being a blogger, you can never settle on one product even if it is good, and undoubtedly I had to try another option in hair colour – I came across this Revlon Colorsilk hair color.
Price: Rs 380
The Box contains:
I usually would have never shifted from Loreal, but again this being a permanent (as per claims) and no ammonia hair colour, I was sure I could test this out. Hair colouring kits are very easy to apply and quite economical too. I was quite bored of my dark hair and decided to go a bit lighter this time. I was not sure about the gray coverage but I as I loved the shade on the Revlon Colorsilk hair color pack, I just wanted to try the shade Medium Brown.
My Take on Revlon Colorsilk hair color: When I opened the pack, I realized that the quantity of the hair colour provided in the pack wouldn’t be enough for my mid-back length hair. I was upset as I had to buy another pack so that I wouldn’t fall short of hair colour. When I bought this hair colour for the first time I thought I saved some money as the Revlon hair colour costs Rs 380 and the Loreal one costs Rs 550. As I had to purchase 2 packs, the overall cost of the Revlon Colorsilk hair color went up to Rs 760, so it turned out a bit expensive than my expectation. Now my only hope was to get better results from the hair colour.
The application was easy and I kept the hair colour for 40 mins instead of 30 mins to get the desired hair colour. The conditioner provided in the sachet also did not suffice and I had to use a bit of my regular hair conditioner. After wash, I did notice that my hair had turned lighter but I was more excited to dry my hair and check it in broad daylight.
This is what the hair colour turned out to be. You can also see the before and after pics.
It’s been a month after applying this hair colour and I haven’t seen much fading of the hair colour. This colour changed my grays to light brown colour, making them less prominent. Obviously with darker hair colours, the coverage will be better. I really like how my hair has turned out now and I am enjoying its effect when I am out in the sun. The only drawback that I felt was my hair have turned a bit dry than before. I guess it could be due to this hair colour being permanent whereas the the Loreal one that I tried earlier is temporary hair colour.
You have quite a few shade options to choose from. It’s a great option for girls with short hair but for long hair this will turn out to be expensive than the Loreal Casting Creme gloss hair color. The effectiveness of the hair colour is more or less the same to Loreal, but I still feel the Loreal hair colour did not dry my hair out as much as this one did.
Overall Verdict: I am really happy with the hair colour and it looks great in broad daylight and is multi-dimensional. It’s definitely a competition to the L’Oreal casting Creme gloss Hair color and if you like trying out new stuff just like I do, you can definitely try this one.
So what do you think about temporary hair colours??? Which one worked better on your hair, L’Oreal or Revlon?
