It's a little darker than expected but that just might be how my hair took the color. But overall, gorgeous. especially when the sun shines on my head, the red is so pretty! I love this brand also, doesn't dry out my hair at all! I have gotten lots of compliments.

Beautiful Color
I have used Redken products since my career began in the beauty industry some 30 years ago and I am always impressed with the results I get. The Chromatics line is my latest endeavor and as always, love the product. I purchased the 4Vr and 4R and mixed them to get an amazing color. Was a bit concerned that it might be too dark as I typically use level 5 color. But my desire to try the line was enough for me to take the chance... I am not disappointed and have received many compliments on not only the color but also how brilliant it is. My experience ordering through Sleekhair was just as incredible. They took the time to inform me that they were unable to fulfill my entire order due to running out but they were very quick to send me what they did have. My order was placed on Tuesday and despite the setbacks the remaining part of my order was delivered by Friday. The company is on their game, they definitely have my business from here on out and will be telling others about them.

Great product!
This is a great product! My only complaint is that sometimes the color is a little lighter than what I would like. My husband colors my hair and we save at least forty dollars every 3 to 4 weeks. I would definitely recommend! Best of all, no tipping required and my hair gets colored when I need it! No waiting for an appointment at the salon.
ProsProduct is better for your hair than grocery store or drug store color.
ConsNot sure about expiration dates on product.

My hair is a medium neutral brown (box color). It fades bad. What is a nice neutral brown not too light and not black . Thanks
Look for the levels with the N shade. The Ns stand for Neutral or Natural shade. Choose the number of level based on how dark you would prefer. Also, the redken shades eq gloss line is great to keep your hair color fresh inbetween colors. Hope that helps! :)

I ordered chromatic 6gb, which I thought was gold / brown. But when I received my color the box read gold/ beige. Is this the same as gold/ brown? Or do I have to return the boxes and have sleek hair send me the correct color?

I ordered the 5ab - ash black however the product that I received was labeled 5ab - ash blue. Is this the same color or a shipping error. What has been the experience of people who used of the 5ab ash black (or ash blue) with regard to how close the color depicted online resembled their personal results - lighter or darker.
I have not used the colors myself, but true black is actually a highly saturated blue pigments. If you were to dilute a level 1 black, it would eventually dilute to a blue base. Hope that helps! :)

What is a beautiful chromatics base formula to cover greys for my natural level 6/7 hair. I don't want any brassy just a rich grey coverage similar to my own color. Thank you!

from Alabama asked:
January 20, 2016
Past and current using chromatics 5 NW with chromatics 20 dev. And love it. How is the color Clear used normally?
Clear is used to dilute colors. Clear is a color itself technically, but cannot be used without adding to another color. If the colors are stronger than desired result, you use clear as a color to add in and soften results. Works best with reds, blondes and toners. It is usually used in conjunction with a customized formula for client specific results. Hope that helps! :)

Does Redken Chromatics Permanent Hair Color have metallic ingredient? The reason why I ask is because I had my hair straightened. My hairstylist said I should not use any hair color that has "metallic" ingredient. Thanks

How to apply the 4NW color? Would you please let me know which developer is good to go with it? How long the color will last?, after we have our hair dye, what kind of shampoo and conditioner should we use to keep our hair color last longer? Thanks
Know the difference between your current level to your desired level. You can look up an image search for "hair color level chart". The difference between the two levels will dictate which volume developer to use. If it is the same level or less, use 10 volume developer; up to 2 levels of lift, then use 20 volume; 3 levels, then use 30 volume; more than 3, you must prelighten the hair with bleach lightener. Only use the Redken Oil in Cream Developer with the Redken Chromatics colors. Mix equal parts hair color to developer. Apply and then let process for 35 minutes. The time the color will last in your hair is based on the difference of natural color to your desired result. (Also, your the amount of grays matters!) The greater the difference, the shorter length of time it will last. For colors like 4NW, they usually last longer than lighter shades and reds. Six to eight weeks is a general rule of thumb, but more if you can stand your root grow out. To keep your color looking fresh, Redken makes an AMAZING product called Redken Shades EQ Gloss. It is definitely a cult-favorite and they sell it here on SleekHair. It brings back shininess and vibrance to your hair. It is great to use in-between hair coloring. You might even get away with using the gloss every other time, instead of just this permanent color. (Only use it with the specific Shades EQ activator, it will not work with any developers.) For shampoos and conditioners, find products that state they are color safe. There are millions out there and they will keep the color from fading faster. Redken makes some great ones.

my hair is dark brown, what number should I use to have light brown color. thanks
If your hair is natural, never colored virgin hair; these directions should help as a guide. If you hair is previously colored, you will have to compensate for what is already in your hair. If you search google for a "hair level chart", you can choose which level you currently are and what level you want to achieve. The difference of the two number is how many levels you want your developer to lighten. With that number, decide which volume developer to use. As for developers, 10 volume generally has no lift and it deposits only; 20 volume is up to 2 levels of lift; 30 is up to 3 levels of lift. Only use the Redken Chromatics Oil in Cream Developer with the Redken Chromatics colors. For more than 3 levels, you will have to prelighten with bleach lightener. To find the shade you would like, google image search "Chromatics color chart" (there are small differences from chart to chart, also your screen may make a slight visual difference). Use your number of desired result level you previously found as a guide. It is the number in the name of the color. When choosing a shade, know that lifting levels of you hair will lift warm. Searching images for "underlying pigment chart" will help to understand what I am mean by "lifting warm". Look for a "color theory chart". This will help you choose a shade that will compensate for the warmth. The words "blue", "ash" and "violet (or "B", "A", and "V") will neutralize the warmth. Choose one of those and mixing with an "N" (for natural) would probably work well. Okay, so you know your volume of developer, which number and letters of color you want. For application, mix with a ratio of equal parts color to developer. Make sure to measure. Let process for 35 minutes starting after application has finished. Extra tip, use a lower volume developer or darker level color on your roots. Roots lighten faster than your length. This is because your head is warm and your length is not. This makes the color lift faster and can cause hot roots, which is not so pretty. Lengthy answer, but hope this helps!

Hi, I am looking for a new hair colourant and wanted to ask your opinion as to which Redken shade and product would be best for me? I am 57 years of age and my hair is shoulder length and coarse in texture. My natural hair colour used to be dark brown, but is probably a dark gray now but whiter closer to the front. My eyes are hazel/brown and my skin a medium tone.The shade I usually use is a chocolate brown. I am wanting to keep my hair a warm brown (without redness). I would be grateful for any advise, Gillian

My hair is light brown and has no color in it. I am looking to paint in blonde balayge highlights. I want to lighten a good bit but still look natural, blended. I like this haircolor because it seems like it is multidimensional. Cool or neutral colors look best with my coloring and complexion. My hair tends to pull a lot of golds and can look brassy. What color would you recommend.

I am trying to get carmel or buttercream highlights on a base 7.0 hair. You seem to not make a yellow range. What do i do? I also have a slight base of red in hair. Should I cancel out with violet or green and how much is safe?
It is not a good idea to use permanent color like Redken Color Gels over highlighted hair - you can serious damage your hair. You can use non-permanent (semi or demi) color for reduce unwanted hues.
