I was skeptical that anything but a dye would put beautiful color in my hair, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. I have bleached my hair multiple times over the years, absolutely destroying it, chopping it off, growing it out and going natural only to turn around and kill it again - usually only to go blonde. I've only ever had highlights or chunks of color before, but a couple of months ago I decided to try a DIY ombre then add a teal dye. I didn't bleach my hair light enough (for fear of killing it) and the dye turned my hair a faded looking green. I tried again, still ugly green. Then I saw an ad for oVertone on Facebook, read some reviews, and ordered the "extreme teal" system. My hair is now softer, shinier, and best of all... a beautiful dark teal, and I've gotten compliments ever since (even a Dr wanted to know how she could get her hair colored similarly). I can't imagine ever using a dye again after this experience. Teal is my favorite color, but I definitely think I'll try out others in the future.
