so gentle
September 16, 2016
Shades EQ adds color and shine and does not strip or dry the hair. New hair growth does not show a defined color change line as the product fades and softens with washes.
Pros:
Shine, health
Cons:
A bit challenging to mix colors for optimal shade.

Great red-brown color, gentle
May 26, 2016
This is great. Blends my grays and doesn't damage my very delicate hair. It doesn't do a perfect job with grays and has a hard time with a couple of the strands that stick out in the front of my face but other hair dyes damage my hair and cause it to get very dry and split.
Pros:
gentle non-damaging easy to use
Cons:
has trouble covering stubborn grays can be messy and splatter if you're not careful too runny to use on eyebrows

Best black rinse ever!
May 12, 2016
I ordered it, because my beautician informed me this is what she be using in my hair. Instead of me paying her $30.00 to do it, I can do it myself lol Soooooooooooo! It's a great rinse, and I can tell it's going to last a few weeks which is perfect. It's easy to mix with the PROCESSING SOLUTION, and as long as you follow directions and use the 1:1 ratio you'll be just fine. It's kind of watery not thick like MOST hair rinse, and it goes on so smooth. It has no smell, and it do stain. So make sure you have some dye remover to remove the stain around your edges as well. For the price you can't beat it, and you'll be able to do a good 2 black rinse on short hair out of one bottle. THAT IS A STEAL! I'll be most definitely shopping here for my onyx color gloss, and I can't believe that I'm just now trying to rinse my own hair. I could've done this years ago, but better now than LATER!
Pros:
no smell, dyes gray hair perfectly, dyes dark hair perfectly, easy to apply, rinses off well, you can leave it on up to 45 mins, and it want damage your hair, great to use after a relaxer
Cons:
watery when mixed, stains skin just a little bit,

Long lasting color and high shine!
March 2, 2016
First off I'd like to state that for a gloss, the lasting power is incredible. The color lasted longer than some permanent dyes I have used. Now, for the rest of my review... Revlon Shades EQ will likely be the ONLY dye I will use on my hair from here on out. The consistency is a thin, watery and almost gel-like which makes distributing the product very easy. I'm a big fan of mixing colors to create more dimensional hair colors, and shades EQ is perfect for that. My current color is a mix of 3RV and 3RV which indoors appears to be a very rich and sultry brunette, but outdoors gleams and reflects luxurious shades of red and hints of violet. As previously stated, the color lasts a very long time (6 to 8 weeks). I found the gloss to be non-damaging, very conditioning and it delivers a shine that leaves your looking incredibly healthy. This color gloss IS suitable for extensions, I used 2 bottles total of the color gloss to dye my Bellami extensions. The color gloss didnt do any damage to my extensions and actually left them feeling healthier (which may have to do with olaplex) and restored the original shine that they had when I first purchased them. If you've ever used the L'oreal Preference dyes from Sally's, I find those to be an adequate dupe and is what I used previously, however Shades EQ is significantly more conditioning and less than damaging then the L'oreal dye and in my experience lasts much longer. Shades EQ is a little more pricey, but in my opinion worth the price difference. Each bottle is 2oz and meant to be used in a 1:1 ratio with the processing solution. My hair is past collarbone length and VERY thick, and I needed 3oz total (1 1/2 bottles) of the color gloss, which i mixed with 3oz of processing solution. I used a mixing bowl and standard tint brush to apply, however because of the consistency of the product I do believe that even application of the gloss can be easily achieved with an applicator bottle as well. I did use Olaplex in my color formula and post gloss i followed up with the two step Aphogee treatment and use Joico K-Pak shampoo and conditioner, Healthy Sexy Hair leave in conditioner and coconut oil after every washing. I find this combination of products to be best for my hair and recommend this regimen in addition to using Redken Shades EQ. The only cons to this product are that it does still smell like hair dye even though its a gloss (so open your windows during application), and it does stain clothing so do not wear light colored clothing when hair is wet after the first two or three times of washing hair after application, and of course don't wear clothes you care about while applying the product.
Pros:
Conditioning, long lasting, easy to use, safe for extensions, compatible with many products.
Cons:
Smell, stains clothing.

Looks Amazing
February 1, 2016
Color looks amazing! Holds up for a red color pretty well too. I swim a lot and it still held for a few weeks. Even when the chlorine washes it out, it turns a very pretty reddish orange color! When I don't swim it stays in great. Got lots of compliments with this color.

Great glossy color
January 30, 2016
I use this color in 9V as a toner for my blond hair. It leaves my hair soft and glossy with no damage whatsoever. It does leave it a little dry so it's necessary to use a very hydrating conditioner afterward, but other than that, I have nothing but good things to say about it. 9V has a violet base which neutralizes overly golden tones that inevitably creep into my heavily highlighted hair about a month after I have the color done, probably because of the minerals in the Florida water. It's nice that I can do the toner myself and not have to pay for an expensive salon appointment (my colorist uses the same darn thing). I only leave the color on for 5 minutes, which is just long enough to tone the overly golden tones without losing the highlights themselves. I've also mixed 9V with 9NB when I want a more neutral result. Either way Shades EQ works great and I recommend it highly. Nothing could be easier. It's a professional salon product that delivers salon quality results that lasts 15-20 shampoos (as long as you use a sulfate free formula) What could be better than that? I highly recommend SEQ. It's an exceptional color product I've used for years.

Beautiful Color and Shine
December 20, 2015
I love this demi-permanent color. As with most other demi-permanent the color turns out darker than it looks. I use colors in the range of 7 and 8 and I have medium dark brown hair. I usually mix colors with a bit of gold into the neutral. It doesn't cover gray as well as permanent color so i have to touch up the grays (i have just a few at temples and part) more often but its worth it as it leaves my hair shiny and adds body.
Pros:
Great shine and color.
Cons:
Not the best for gray but no demi-permanent really is.

Great for hightlights on dark brown hair
August 27, 2015
Pull dark hair through a cap. Bleach lightly. Just 5 to 7 min for dark brown or black hair. Rinse out bleach but keep the cap in place. Apply the 7g as directed. It brightens and accents your look.
Pros:
Leaves hair shiney
Cons:
Wish it lasted a bit longer

High pigment yellow!
August 27, 2015
If you are looking for YELLOW AND NOT GOLD, THIS IS IT! . Gold is made up of yellow and orange. I was looking for a straight yellow to brighten my medium/ (level 5) olive skin.. You can use this with 10 toner and you don't have to mix any other color. I did mix with 7G but found I liked it better without the 7G. 7G has the gold tone.
Pros:
Shiney.
Cons:
Doens't last too long. Can be a plus if you like to change colors!

Answer:

By Brittany from Colorado on March 27, 2014
Hello i have medium to light brown hair. Its coarse and very curly but is now mostly wavy on top because i iron my hair with a chi iron most days. My mother is a cosmetologist and does my hair.she uses vlights bleach with 30 vol to lighten my roots.it comes out very light blonde with yellowish undertones. She then tones with redken shades eq 9v platinum ice. I love love love the way it comes out but after 3-4 washes its out. What can i do to keep the desired look. Do i need to tone bi weekly or is there something to make it last longer or is there a permanent version of the 9v platinum ice toner.
By Maiia from San Jose, CA on April 13, 2014

Answer:
Try using the Joico cuticle sealer after coloring and in between. It help to close cuticle of hair because has acidic pH.

By MAIIA from San Jose, CA on June 14, 2014

Answer:

I have been using midway couture for about 15 yrs and want to change to Redken Shades EQ. The color combination I use is 7/8G golden brown and 4/5N Brown equal parts. Can someone please suggest a color for me. I'm about 75 percent grey and want to go completely grey someday.

Answer:
Ive been using shades eq 7nb chestnut all winter. It's s warm brown with a hint of red/caramel.
When spring time arrives I switch to 7gb butterscotch it's a golden beige. It's pretty! Not too gold or yellow. It's a warm caramel color. I've also used 5n walnut. That's a basic dark brown. The shades eq is great for shine. Also makes your hair feel healthy and strong. The color doesn't last long. I usually apply it every 4 weeks.
Redken just came out with shades eq color cream. It last longer and is richer in color. I just tried it last week for the first time. It's super shiny tho the color choices are limited.
Sleekhair doesn't sell it yet. I'm hoping they will soon.
But the original shades eq is great. If I were you. I would mix 7gb with 5n. That sounds like what your using now.
The good thing is. If you don't love the color. It washes out pretty quick!

Answer:
I would have to look at the whole Redken color chart to figure that out. I think if you go to the Redken website they have a shade progression progression chart. I have very dark brown hair and have gotten a lot gray this past year. I won't use anything but Shades. It actually makes my hair stronger, thicker, and shinier. Don't be afraid to go a little darker for a richer color. It blends nicely after two washes.

Can you send me a picture of your current color?
By Abbie from california on February 29, 2012

Answer:
I've used Shades EQ for several years now, and I'm a dark brunette. I don't know the color brand that you were using, but I'm also not a stylist. You may want to try 04 NB Maple--medium neutral brown and 05G Caramel --light golden brown. Maple is too light for me, but very pretty; though the "Neutral Browns" all seem to have some red undertones in them, just fyi. Shades Eq colors (the semi-permanent) are very forgiving, and will blend into your gray -- you'll maybe have to try a few different combinations to find the right look for you. Have fun!

Hi. My stylist (b4 leaving the salon I go to) normally colored my hair with Redken Shades Eq. My natural is about a level 4 (med. brown) and I'm looking to do a chocolate brown. Any suggestions in what color(s) to use? I'm not looking to have a lot of red, just a nice warm tone. Thanks!

Hi I have 1B color hair. And would like to lift enough to achieve the below color. I was leaning towards 3RV but have read these shades pull dark? Should I use 4rv instead? I also want to highlight a little and was thinking 5rv? If I am completely off base please help!
By Maiia from San Jose, CA on April 13, 2014

Answer:
If your hair was colored, you can't use color lighter, only darker or the same.
The color can't light other color.
So you'll choose the color of 1 level or high-lift your hair with bleach powder.

The base color of my hair is Violet however I have some highlights throughout my head which are red in color... My question is which glaze should I use violet or red ? If violet-will it kill my red highlites? Or if i use red , will my whole head become red?? Thank you guys!:)))
By MAIIA from San Jose, CA on January 7, 2014

Answer:
If you will use red color, your violet part of hair will be a little more red, but still violet. If you will use violet shadow over all hair it will "kill" your red highlights.
