In need of a sugar rush? This intensely dark brown shade, with built-in Vibrancy Serum, maximises colour depth right down to the core of each hair strand - for a brunette shade as rich as it is vibrant.

Top tips:

  • Always perform the allergy alert test 48 hours before each time you colour, even if you’ve used the product before
  • Check the colour application range to make sure this product is suitable for your natural hair colour
  • Remember, if your hair’s previously coloured, this may affect results
  • Avoid staining your fav jumper by having an old towel at the ready and use some skin barrier cream around your hairline/ears
  • Have some cotton pads and skin toner handy just in case you get some product on your skin
  • If you’re lucky enough to have thick locks or hair longer than shoulder length, you’ll need two or more packs for a nice, even coverage
  • LIVE Intense Colour should be applied to clean, dry hair

I recently dyed my hair with this product expecting a rich chocolate brown but my hair turned out jet black, I am so disappointed and upset with this product as I did not get what I payed for.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Jemma, we're sorry to hear that you didn't get the colour results you were expecting. Bittersweet Chocolate is a very dark brown shade and results can be affected by various factors, especially if it's applied to previously coloured hair. If you'd like to discuss this further, please call our Advisory team on 0800 328 9214 and an advisor will be happy to help.
