Mystic recently came out with a hair dye line. They use to only carry hair treatment products which I have used a few times and liked so I figured I would try the dye as well. The color I used was 1N (natural black) and I used a 20 volume developer. I followed the instructions that were provided on the inside of the actual box itself which I did not like because you had to rip open the box. The packaging itself is cute and price was reasonable ($6.49 for color and got developer free as part of a buy 1 get 1 free at Sally’s).
The developer smelled pretty good, wasn’t too strong or anything. The color comes in a tube and it has creme texture. Once mixed the product was easy to apply and did not make my scalp burn like some dye. I left the dye on for 45mins as instructed and washed my hair out. While I was washing it out for a good 5mins color was still coming out?! Normally permanent hair color does not bleed so much so I was surprised this one was. The final color was true to what the box claimed: black. You usually can’t go wrong with black.
I am writing this review two weeks after dying my hair and the color seems to be sticking but I am still seeing color in the shower! Also my old color that I had dyed over is starting to peak through! I have never in the history of dying my hair had a black hair dye let color show through. This product was a fail! I will have to redo my hair soon to coverup the peaking color. The will give it a good note that it did not damage my hair. The product contains a lot of good oils to help with your hair health(maybe why color didn’t stick due to oil?) but besides that overall not a good product.
I would give this product a 1 out of 5 stars due to the previous color peaking and the bleeding. I have never had this issue with any other permanent hair dye. I would not recommend but feel free to try it for yourself.
