Some of you may not have realized that Natural Instincts had revamped their look and introduced a new “Vibrant” line, that includes a 2-week color refresher. Well, NI wants to make sure that all of you know it now, by giving you a chance to try it for FREE!

Starting at 12pmEST on May 13th (today!) thru May 15th (Sunday), you can go to the Clairol Facebook Page and get one of 25,000 free boxes they are giving out each day. I’m telling you – you better be quick, because I am certain these will go fast!

Also, just to let you know, I recently tried the “Vibrant” Dark Auburn, and the hue really is a brighter, not brassy color. In fact, it’s time for me to try the refresher (*review coming soon!).

Lemme know if you are able to snag one of these and what you think after you try it!

Product Recall Info – Clairol Natural Instincts

You guys know that I am a big Clairol Natural Instincts supporter, due to my several posts here on OGB. Well, when I heard about a recall they were doing, I wanted to make sure that you guys had the information, too:

The Natural Instincts shades affected by the recall are:

— Shade 16 Light Auburn (Spiced Tea)

— Shade 35 Brown Black (Ebony Mocha)

— Creme Shade 03G Light Golden Blonde (Honey Creme)

“Customers who have purchased the recalled shades can call Clairol for a replacement number at 866-493-0512.”

**UPDATE**Just heard from the Natural Instincts reps and they wanted to make sure that we all understand that it is mismatched refreshers in the boxes that is being recalled – that the color itself is fine. If you want to read more specific details of the recall, including instructions on how to determine if you have a recalled box, please check out the Clairol alert page: http://www.clairol.com/alert/

Thank you for your Natural Instincts contest support!

Today is the last day to help me try to win the “Natural Instincts Hair Color Contest”. That also means this is the last day that I will have to harass all of you lovely people via Twitter and Facebook to vote for me. Hooray!

While I hope that I haven’t been *too* annoying in my vote begging, I want to take a minute to thank all of the wonderful lovelies that have shown me so much support during this voting period. The following beauties were generous enough to share the contest with their blog readers and I want to make sure that you go over and support them, too:

And, I can’t even *begin* to list all of the wonderful folks that have supported me on twitter by RT’ing my begs and letting me know they voted for me and cheered me on via @messages. I sincerely appreciated every single one of your votes/messages/comments that you have left me on my site & on other folks. Not gonna lie – the warm wishes are a bit overwhelming, yet I wholeheartedly lap up each and every one of them. 😉

So, consider this my final beg for your last daily vote on the Natural Instincts contest page, with a side of appreciation thrown in for good measure. xo

Vote for ME in the Natural Instincts contest!

YOU GUYS! Do you remember when I told you about the “Natural Instincts Hair Color contest” and I told you I was thinking about entering? I DID! And now I am one of 5 FINALISTS!!! Seriously!

Now, this is where I need *YOUR* help. Voting is open NOW until 11:59:59pm EST October 14th on the Natural Instincts contest page. You are allowed one vote per email address per day(*one day being from 12:00AM to 11:59PM EST). This includes my lovely International readers, too!! Get that? You can vote DAILY – which I know you want to do, right? 😉

So, be sweet and head over there now and use that first day vote right now, okay? I would really appreciate it! 🙂

It’s a contest to wash that grey out…

It’s no secret around here that I color my hair to the lovely red auburn shade that I sport, while trying to cover my grey roots. Heck, I’ve been coloring my ashy brown hair red WAY before I ever even started showing roots. I know I’ve talked about using Natural Instincts on here before. (*Heck, I’ll still take credit for getting them to change their instructions).

Well, they are running a contest that I am seriously thinking about entering – the Natural Instincts Hair Color Contest (*catchy name, right?). Here is what I could win (*or you if you choose to enter yourself):

Grand Prize

  • Trip for 2 to New York City
  • Makeover at celebrity colorist Marie Robinson’s salon
  • $1000 spending money
  • Appear in a Natural Instincts how-to video

All entries must be received by August 30th, contestants will be reviewed until October 6th & then will be voted on by “America” on October 7th thru the 14th. (*You guys WOULD vote for me, right? RIGHT?)

The contest is being held in conjunction with the Natural Instincts Hair Color Challenge which says that you will “get healthy-looking hair in 10 minutes. Guaranteed. Or we’ll buy you 2 boxes of your old color.** (**Satisfaction guaranteed or we will refund you for one Natural Instincts box and the value of 2 boxes of your old hair color/replacement hair color (up to $14 per box)).” So, even if you don’t want to enter the contest, you might want to think about taking them up on their challenge.

Okay, so now I am off to go find my color – “18RG Golden Mahogany” from the “Golden Shimmers” collection – which, for some reason I can’t find easily locally, but its worth it to search it out, imo. Do you use or have you tried Natural Instincts? What color are you?
