Review: Beautiful Collection Clairol Advanced Gray Solution Haircolor – Covers Gray With No Peroxide Or Ammonia


The ultimate goal of any hair color is to provide lasting, natural looking color while leaving hair shiny and healthy.  It’s important you first know what you want your color to be and how long you want it to last.  And you really should understand the condition of your hair currently.  Is it  virgin or semi colored or permanent colored or whether it’s permed.  From there, you can decide on the best route to take.

If you’re looking to cover gray, you might want to try Clairol’s Advanced Gray Solution Hair Color.

Review: Clairol Advanced Gray Solution Haircolor - Covers Gray With No Peroxide Or Ammonia

The product has a unique technology called SynAIRgy technology that combines the benefits from both semi and demi-permanent color to create a whole new kind of dye system – one that reacts with oxygen in the AIR (instead of a developer) to form a larger molecule able to penetrate more deeply into the hair shaft. It uses no peroxide, no ammonia and delivers true, full-scale rich color to the hair without compromising hair’s health.

Advanced Gray Solution’s breakthrough SynAIRgy technology contains an oxidative dye that uses oxygen in the air as a color developer to form a large dye molecule, eliminating the need to use a product with hydrogen peroxide for longer-lasting coverage.  After coloring with Advanced Gray Solution, oxygen continues to combine with the small dye molecules, converting them into full color over the next five days.

Advanced Gray Solution is gentle due to the caring formula with no peroxide and no ammonia. Usually peroxide is needed for generating oxidative color dye molecules. With SynAirgy technology the system has changed: Air oxidizes the dye and builds large color molecules. As oxidative dyes are smaller than direct dyes, they penetrate deeper into the hair shaft. Oxidized with air, they get larger inside the hair and stay for longer. The bigger direct dyes remain under the cuticle and can be washed out easier.  This product should last up to 24 shampoos.

    I have tried this product, but the color only lasts a week before gray hair is visible again without shampooing hair. I don’t like hair colors with peroxide or ammonia. What can I do to make the color last longer without going to a permanent color? Clairol products have been trusted in my family for generations.

    Thank You

    I have used Clairol’s Beautiful Collection off and on for years. The first time I tried it, I loved it. It worked well, smelled good, and the color lasted a long time. Then I didn’t use it for a few years and now that I’ve been using it for a few months again I am REALLY disappointed. It is causing my hair to FALL OUT. I can’t help but notice that every single time I use this product, my hair falls out profusely. The type of resistant grey has dried my hair out so much that the hair that isn’t falling out is breaking off. The moisturizing solution leaves a heavy, almost greasy coating on my hair. And the product smells so bad that my family won’t let me be in the same room with them if it’s in my hair. I think it might be a lot better to go grey than bald. I wouldn’t advise anyone to use this product.
