  • I Can't Live Without Unred Drops 5 Star Rating
    I am a salt and pepper brunette... thought I could dye my own hair brown. It worked.. for awhile. Then the brassiness began.. and gets worse over time. But I'm determined to not color anymore. And the remedy I've finally discovered with Unred Drops actually darkens and colors my grey hair!
    The secret is to NOT RINSE your hair. Yes, some brassiness comes out adding this to conditioner or shampoo, but not nearly enough. So I bought a leave-in conditioner and I add 15 or so drops to it. Put on gloves, and cover my hair with it. Then blow dry. Still some brassiness... but it's better. Then I add more drops to my styling gel that I apply to nearly dried hair. Then I style and use hairspray to which I've also added the drops. It's a ton better than what would be natural at this point.
    But it's hard to hold my style with so much product in my hair. I'm going to try adding the drops to aloe vera gel... see if weighs my hair down less.
    This is not ideal... yes, my fingernails are a tad blue if I scratch my head. And if it rains I'm in deep trouble, lol! But it's much better than I had imagined, in terms of how much blue comes off. Not much on my white pillowcases - not much at all surprisingly. I try to go at least 2-4 days without washing... as this is so much work. But again, it's worth it.
    And now I know what I may use once the color is gone/cut away, just to keep a darker color to my hair. I don't mind the grey as much as the lightening of my hair color overall as it greys.

  • Does What Redken Can't!! 5 Star Rating
    My father was strawberry blond and my hair has a terrible tendency to turn reddish even when using ash hair colors! This product stops the red in the color (I use Redken), and if need be, in my shampoo or conditioner, and I even add it into my bumble & bumble styling spray! It WORKS!!! I've used it effortlessly for nearly five years and it has ENDED the brassiness....period.

  • Success! 5 Star Rating
    I have naturally dark brown hair, so of course I wanted to dye it light ash brown, the first time it came out burgundy.  I heard of unred, saw it, bought, it tried again and bravo. I never thought in a million years I could get that darn red out. Whoever invented this, thanks! By the way I know dying your hair is not a piece of cake, but I'm not a professional and I actually did it :)

  • Using Unred After Dying Hair Blonde From Red 5 Star Rating
    I dyed my hair a red/brown about a week ago then bleached it back out. It turned a blonde orange color. Will unred help tone down the orange or do I need to dry my hair my natural color then highlight again?

  • Works Great For Me! 5 Star Rating
    I have never tried adding this product to shampoo or conditioner. I use it only as an additive when coloring my hair and it has worked great. I didn't ever think to try it after I dyed my hair and it was bright red where my grays were. My only trouble is when I don't add enough and my gray hair stands out a bit from the rest of my hair. Sallys doesn't carry the bottle and I was forced to buy several packets, It's alot more accurate with the bottle.

  • Medium Brown With Brassy Tones 3 Star Rating
    I had deep dark hair for a long time, the i decided to change and go for an ash brown, i bleached once and it went orange then i used an medium ash blonde but it didnt work, i went to the saloon and they belached my hair again and it went orange/gold and i had to pay 35e to find out. i went to another saloon and they pretty much solve the orange/yollowish tone and now i have a light brown but stil there's a rest of this... goldish/orange tone so i bought at the saloon (because they recomended it to me) the blue malva conditioner (aveda) because it i supposed to neutralize brassy tones but it doesnt really work for me, so i was thinking: would this product work on brown hair with brassy tones to get an ash brown? for example when mixing it with a conditioner such as blue malva? or it is just meant to be used to get rid of RED tone?

  • Used With Conditioner 4 Star Rating
    I read online that you could use this in shampoo, but couldnt find any specific directions, so this is what I did: I washed my hair, added one unred packet to my conditioner and left it in my hair for. . . I dont know, thirty to forty five minutes? I didnt really pay attention, I would have left it in longer but I had to go to work. Anyways, it took a lot of the red out (my hair looked like a light brown inside but a BRIGHT orange outside, it really was interesting) but I would like more out so Im going to buy another packet and do the same thing again. Good luck!
