Girls just have a thing about hair

Let's face it -- having someone play with our hair is intimate. It feels good. Who could forget Warren Beatty's portrayal of a free-wheeling hair dresser in the mid-70s sex farce Shampoo?

Color by Robert Craig

Available in 21 intermixable luxurious shades plus a special Clear color to add shine or fine-tune the other colors, this gentle permanent hair color is truly one of the best hair color systems on the market.

Developed without a trace of harmful peroxide, ammonia, alcohol, or perfume, hair is not damaged or dried out. If you want to stay within your own color range or go darker, this is one of the ideal choices to cover grays.

If you chose a shade a little or a lot lighter than your natural hair color, the grays turn into highlights. There are no brassy results because there is no ammonia or peroxide to bleach the hair. This line is the first mixable line available to consumers which means that the powder form allows users to fine tune the color they want. Whatever color is not mixed will keep for months, unlike liquid colors. Color by Robert Craig is sold at or by calling the toll-free number, (800) 917-2566.
