hi guys! i hope some of you guys can help me

i'm assuming you know what i'm talking about, loreal's temporary hair-color mousse (link: http://www.lorealparis.ca/en/haircolor/index_color_pulse.asp), and i was wondering if you have tried it, did you like it?

for some extra information about me, i have really dark brown hair (almost black but not quite). i've been wanting real black hair, but i'm kind of scared of dying it (because of damage, fading, etc), so this temporary thing sounds promising.

i would really appreciate any imput! thanks in advance  Smiley

edit: i just realized that the darkest shade of color pulse is something called "electric night" which looks kind of blue-black. if you have used it, what does it really look like?

I've tried it back when I had plain dark brown hair. Depending on how long/thick your hair is you will need two bottles, I can GAURANTEE you that if your hair is longer then shoulder length you WILL NEED two bottles. It just shows up a flat black, no blue (atleast for me) and it didnt look very natural (or nice) atall (again, this was probably because flat, solid colours are not something I can pull off.) The one upside is that it fades out nicely, nothing super obviouse.

I bought the black a few weeks ago, but haven't used it yet.

i have used color pulse twice.  first i used the pink. a month later, i went with copper blast.  each time, i had plenty for my hair (just past shoulder length & very thick), but it came out very splotchy.  even though it seemed to cover well in application, it didn't take well.
my blonde highlights took each color & held onto them for dear life (the pink was still there a month later, when i used the copper blast), but the brown didn't change much at all...  it got darker with the pink & took on a slightly more orange tint with the copper blast.

i did the copper blast a month after i did the pink. it covered the lingering pink well & has washed out a little better than the pink.

i still have red to do, but figured that i would wait until after i have secured a new job before jumping into that color.  (unless i get bored)

i used this on a friend of mine who had blonde underneath and black on top.....she only died the bottom part and it didnt stick really good......and we used a little bit on me and it didnt show up at all.....and i have brown hair......we used the red pulse i think......i would just stick with the koolaid dye or something from hottopic.........(i'm pretty sure they have temporary dye) if not spencers has some

~did i die in beauty~with a smile on my face~i was thinking of the beginning~when our love was real~but if there is a beginning there is always an end~unfourtanatley our end came too soon~we live on but our love is dead~never to return~our fate wasnt love it was death~

I have brown hair, sometimes on the darker side of things, but above my shoulders - at the time, it was short enough for me to spike, and I had longer bangs. I bought the black shade (I was hoping to be able to use it for an anime cosplay, but getting escorted off of Parliament Hill is a story for another day). I guess I used to the whole bottle, and I followed the directions exactly, but no one in my family could recognize a change - my dad commented that I had no more natural highlights, but other than that, no one even noticed.

I was kinda upset, I spent $8 on that, and I don't exactly have a generous allowance at the moment. Ah well.

I think one of the reasons for failure could have been the hair gel I had in my hair - with the amount of gell, wax, or hairspray I have in my hair at any one time, it takes about two or three shampoos to get it all completely out. I had only shampooed it once before I started with the Colour Pulse, so maybe the stuff in my hair didn't like the colour? I'm not sure.

I don't know if I helped at all, but there's my opinion. Hope it did  Cool

My daughter has dk  golden brown hair with natural caramel colored highlights, she used one of the red shades over the summer( i cannot remember which) her hair had a vibrant red color for 1 week then faded to a red tinge by the 3rd or 4th week - however the red tinge stayed for another 2 months.Her hair was chin length and very thick.I would try coloring the under side( take a comb and pull up the top layer in a pony tail) as a test, the underside of hair is always darker anyway and if you don't care for it , it won't be glaring.
