Question
Does it easily rub off onto clothes?
I've used hair chalks that have easily rubbed off onto my clothes, are very dusty like, and gets all over my hands when I rub my fingers through my hair. Is this anything like that?

Are you all asking if this emerald color shows up on dark hair? I use the royal blue and have asian black hair ... shows up very well, so I can imagine these other colors would as well.

After it came off on my hands, I just washed them, but it still stayed in my hair and did not get on my clothes. I guess whatever excess is there will come off - so it may be a good idea to put your fingers thru your hair then wash them. I didn't notice any on my clothes but the intensity of color faded after a couple hours. I still use mine (royal blue), but debating on whether to try any others.

In my experience, this stuff is really messy to apply and it doesn't have much staying power.

I have black hair, and want to see how pigmented this would look. Is there a small sample of this I can try? Does it come off on clothing?

It looks more like a tint on dark hair. It is powdery so does have the potential to rub off if you're not careful. Setting with hairspray seems to make it a little more stable.

We do not have samples at this time but you may want to visit your local store. It should not come off on clothing but you will want to seal it with heat or a hair spray.

Yes, i have very dark brown hair with some 'salt' in it. It works well on both the dark and white sections. Some colors work better than others on the darker hair.

I'm asian and have very BLACK dark hair and use Royal Blue. I set it with hairspray after smashing it on (at first I didn't know what that meant) I take the container and literally smash it on my hair and pull down. I set it w hairspray then finger comb my hair so it looks kind of streaky. I think the only excess that is going to come off comes off THEN. It hasn't shown up on my clothes and I use it everyday - have been using it everyday for a week and because it kind of fades after a few hours I brighten it up and still have what looks like a full container. So It doesn't take much - I put it on with a brush the first day and that was a waste. The directions say "smash it on" and use hairspray to set it. I do that and it stays put. I let the spray dry a little before I comb my hair with my fingers to make it streak. I think it's a good size for the money.

Question
How much product provides color payoff and how do you apply it?
I have dark blonde, medium length hair and am interested in this product, but want a better feel for how many times you might be able to use it. In your opinion, doing one pastel streak, how many applications might I get from the container? Also, do you have to take a big clump and rub it in? How is it applied?

The color seemed pretty opaque. I would say you could use the container at least 25 times.

I've used this everyday for a week and put about three smashings into my hair, then have to redo it in a few hours but I still have a very full container. As I answered another person, I also have to run my fingers thru my hair to take out the excess, wash my hands and spray set it. I wish it lasted longer hours but I have black hair and use royal blue. It may stay longer on blonde - there is quite a bit of it in one container.

I would spray on some leave in conditioner or detangler and then use; it sticks better.

If you bother reading directions it will tell you to apply this to dry hair then set it with hairspray. When done correctly it looks nice. I have black hair and use blues. I wash it out and apply it - well the one I own says, "smash it on hair" and they mean this literally. If you brush it on you will get it all over your clothes or in wrong areas. The setting it in place with hairspray is also important. By "smashing" - I mean you actually take the whole thing, casing and all- turn it over and drag it along the places you want to apply the color. Again, taking time to set the color with hairspray once you are done is essential. I've noticed the reviews that complain about it are about things that happened to me when I did not apply this per directions. If you have a light shade of hair make sure you wash it out completely before applying it again as I've seen blondes with left over blue in their hair that looks like green fungus. I have black hair and use blue. You don't need to saturate it with hairspray, but misting over the color is fine too --- the waiting for an extra minute until it is dry makes a big difference in whether you end up with great color look or a hair catastrophe that ends up on your clothes or on your face or splotchy. The directions should be followed exactly as written - I know this because I've made the mistakes I see written in Reviews that put this color effect down. I don't know what color hair you have but putting it on wet will not work. That's one error I never had because read directions - NOW, I follow them also! :)
good luck!

Question
Is it safe to use on dyed blonde hair?
This may seem like a silly question, but I have just coloured (bleached) my hair blonde for the first time and am wondering if this will be safe to use on it. Like, will it permanently stain my hair or not wash out, etc, because it's dyed? Thanks.

Yes, this product is perfectly fine to use on bleached hair, it will wash right out during your next shampoo treatment.

I'm not blonde so this doesn't happen to me, but I've seen blondes who either apply it wrong, or keep it in after it fades and looks hilarious. One had probably used blue but by the time I saw her it looked like she'd grown green fungus in her hair, the other who used a red or pink looked like she had old paint in it or a bad dy/ bleach job. I noticed the problems that people complain about happen only when I don't follow the instructions (yeah, it HAS happened - but doesn't have to).

Question
What happened to the other colors?
I used Colorsmash in a dark blue but can only find it in Jade now. What happened to the other colors? This is the best of its kind because it actually stays on - unlike the colors called "chalk" by other brands. I like the midnight blue on my black hair- can't imagine Jade in it. Thanks.
