What we say:
I’ve been dyeing my own hair for almost seven years now, and for six of those, I’ve been using the same hair dye (granted, in different shades). Why try fix something if it’s broken, right? So as a result it never occurred to me to try a new product.
The reason I was so willing to try this hair dye, is because it has one property that makes it unique: it is the first ever hair colour that comes in the form of a hair mask, that nourishes the hair while it colours it. Anyone who colours their hair knows about the damage that follows, so a product that promises to nurture the hair in the colouring process is sure to get attention.
I bravely opted for the shade Warm Mahogany (a richer red than my usual shade of auburn), and began the process. My first impression was that the formula had an incredibly strong chemical smell, so it’s best to keep the windows open whilst applying it. The instructions were simple and easy to follow, and I found the product spread easily and evenly throughout my hair. A word of warning though – if you have long hair, buy two boxes. My hair hangs halfway down my back, and I ran out of product before I reached my ends, so it took a bit of spreading and rubbing to ensure that the colour reached everywhere it needed to.
A major plus is that the colour did not stain my skin, in fact, the patches I had on my forehead, ears and neck easily came off with a bit of soap and warm water. After rinsing the colour and applying the conditioning mask, I dried my hair and gently combed through it.
The result? My hair was super shiny, in fact, more shiny than it has been in a long time. The colour was rich and true, and so far, hasn’t faded. But most importantly, my hair felt nourished after I used this dye. Even my slightly-overdue-for-a-trim ends felt (and continue to feel) soft. I was extremely impressed with the results and will definitely use it again in the future.

Where is Johannesburg can you buy the Schwarzkop color mask? I cant find it anywhere. I bought it at Clicks Fourways Crossing once but struggle to find it now
Hi Petra, Schwarzkopf products are available at Clicks and Dis-Chem stores, so we would recommend chatting to your nearest store manager.
I was super eager and excite to try The Schwarzkopf Colour Mask Permanent colour in 600 Light Brown that at first glance, I thought to myself, Oh no the instructions are in german lol, once I calmed myself down I saw the english instructions under each step. There was a tub and 2 tubes, one being the colourant the other the conditoner. My hair is really really dark brown, so it looks like its black, unfortunately i had hair product in my hair and had washed and dried my hair, only to read on the instructions that colour had to be applied onto dry unwashed hair, but never the less i was willing to attempt the process. I emptied the Tube of colour into the tub with the product that was already in there, shook it 40 times as instruced in the leaflet, then a few extra timess for good measure, took like 5 seconds and continued to apply the dye, the texture was similar to reallt thick conditioner to the dye wasnt runny at all. For someone that doenst usually colour her hair adn with a strong sense of smell, I found the smell of the dye quite strong, but I survived. anyway, 35 minutes later, washed it off. The result was my hair being about 2 shades lighter, but not as light as the colour indicated on box, maybe its due to my naturally dar couloured hair, and i also noticed it brought out the red tones in my hair, not exactly what i wanted, but never the less it doesnt look bad, i just looks like i lightened my natural hair colour. Other than that, i found the quality of the product to be very impressive. Firstly, i have extremely tangly hair that gets matted, when rinsing the dye off my hair my hair was silky and practically tangle free. and like other reviews had mentioned my hair was super shiny and luxurious after applying the hairmask. Although I didnt get the desired colour, i think i will stick to the schwarzkopf brand, because firstly:
atfer 30 minutes, it did make a different to the colour of my hair, unlike, Clairol chestnut brown which i previously tried and couldnt notice a different in my hair colour, again this could be due to the color of my natural hair, im not an expert.
the texture of my hair afterwards, was so lovely and shiny and luxurious that I would want to use this mask atleast once a month. i love the effect it has on my curly bushy hair, my curls tamed down without loosing definition.
And lastly, if i had bought a different, i can almost guarantee i would rate this product a 5, and that is actually what im going to do, i want to try the Golden brown..and then write another review,
Until then, anybody that wants to colour hair at home, dont settle for cheap products that claim to be quick and easy. use Schwarzkopf, its easy to apply, leaves your hair looking luxurious. What more could a girl want?
I love this product. It is easy to apply, no mess no fuss. I love the smell and the richness of the colour afterwards is amazing, with lots of shine!
