Make sure when applying that you put enough on that you can SEE the color on your hair strands. If you can't see the color, there's not enough on and you might not get a bright result. It's pretty good at not "spreading" when you put the strand down on your head to move to another part.
Even after the color washes out, you're left with some nice highlights. Much better for your hair than bleaching pieces out and putting in temporary dyes. It's also much easier since it's done in one step, not a messy bleach-then-color job. Also less messy "after-math" - you don't generally leave anything "colorful" (like walls, pillowcases, the back of your shirt, etc.) unless you didn't wash the color out well. I will also say, if you get any on your skin while coloring (especially this color, and especially on your face), stop immediately and scrub it off with some shampoo on a rag - otherwise you will end up with a splotch for a day or so.
For me personally, the fuschia color seems to last for maybe two weeks - after that it fades pretty quickly, but like I said, I'm left with some "regular" highlights when it's gone. I've used this multiple times and will definitely use it again!
Easy to use
Good on dark hair
I've used this product thrice now, twice in fuchsia and once in red. For some background info, I'm Asian with black hair that is coarse and dry(ish). I've only used this stuff for streaking, and leaving it in for a little longer than instructed leaves me with bright streaks. Just make sure you don't skimp on the amount on each strand, as that might compromise the brightness. I used a lot on my hair.
Also, I don't really want to go through the hassle of bleaching and then dyeing my hair, and Colour Rays is great for people like me.
That being said, it does fade. I don't use color-safe shampoo and conditioner, so that might be part of the problem, but the bright color faded after about a month. However, some color still stays. I used the red right before Christmas, I think, and right now I'm looking at it and it's a medium red with a hint of orange, depending on the lighting.
I've also noticed more split ends than usual, not to the point where I need to get a trim, but enough to distract me.
Final thoughts: I think this works best on people with more porous hair, as the color lingers longer. Use color-safe hair products and moisturizing conditioner or hair mask or hair treatment for the ends, and you should be good.
I dyed my hair about 9 weeks ago, and although the color has faded to a deep burgundy, it is still very noticeable and has retained a lovely shine. Since I wash my hair every day, I'm impressed that the color stayed in for so long.
I have a few stay gray hairs, and this dye did absolutely nothing to them, so if you have a lot of gray, don't bother getting Colour Rays. You'll just be wasting your money.
This is a great product, and I highly recommend it!
But recently I needed to re-dye my bangs since after about 4-5 weeks the colour fades and my roots stick out, but I wasn't able to buy colour rays and had to buy Splat hair dye instead. Splat comes with bleach and colour, the bleach is hard to mix since all they give you is a bottle to shake, you have to sit 30 minutes (if you have dark hair like me) and then wash it out. After your hair dries, you then apply the colour. It's more of a gel and will drip every where if your not careful. Then you have to wait 30 MORE minutes for that to seep in. After the times up you go and wash the colour out until the water runs clear.
Splat gives a nice colour, but it's not significantly different from colour rays. Colour rays is a lot faster and cleaner.
In the end my bangs are red again, but they are dried out, my bathrooms a mess, and I'm annoyed.
Stick with colour rays, it's fast and easier than using splat.
