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

Amazing colour! In love with mine! Got to have blonde hair before hand weather or not it's dyed blonde or natural! The colour doesn't last ages but if you use a silvering shampoo it does. Leave shampoo on dry hair for 5-10 minutes and then wash off for better results do this atleased 2-3 times a week!!!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Great colour Charlotte - thanks for sharing and thanks so much for the review!

I have recently grown my hair out to its natural light blonde having had it blue/black and blue previously (using live colours and never having an issue)
I decided that for a change I would try the metallic silver and excitedly had my mum help me apply it. However, once washing the dye out...there was absolutely no change in my colour whatsoever.
I am so disappointed as I have never had a problem with live colours before.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Claire, we're really sorry to hear that you didn't see a result from this application. We'd really like to discuss this further with you so do give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 if you'd like to. Thanks.

Love the colour however I’m unhappy that’s it says permanent and it’s actually not, hoping that you will make one that is permanent as it’s washes out after 2 washes
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Sarah, we're really sorry to hear that you didn't get the longevity you were expecting. How long a hair colour lasts can vary depending on individual hair type and history and especially if it's being applied to hair that is already coloured/bleached. We'd really like to discuss this further with you so do give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 if you'd like to. Thanks.

Lovely colour, unfortunately the colour seems to slip off my
Bleached blonde after 3 washes , any ideas on how to make it last longer?
I've violet toning shampoo, the lot !
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Tash, thanks for getting in touch. If your hair is bleached, we'd recommend using a semi-permanent like LIVE Ultra Brights Steel Silver. Our permanent shades are designed to be used on natural hair. It's likely your hair has become porous from the bleaching which means it can't hold onto the colour as well. We'd really like to discuss this further with you and give some more advice so do give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 if you'd like to. Thanks.

Tried the semi permanent one first which was perfect but washed out quite quickly. Tried the permanent one on previously bleeched hair for 20 minutes, went too dark with too much purple tone, hoping it fades out.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Hollie, thanks for leaving your review. LIVE Metallic Silver is designed to be used on natural hair so you would be more likely to see unexpected results when applying it to bleached hair. We'd really like to discuss this further with you so do give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 if you'd like to. Thanks.

Colour looked great but it all washed out with in 3 days I have had semi permanent dyes that last longer
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Gina, we're really sorry to hear that the colour didn't last as long as you expected.

First time user of this colour, hair I had removed colour from leaving it very ginger toned and using this colour toned it down and for me, brought out beautiful highlights. Thanks

I have used two of live silver products and neither of them have covered my bleached blonde hair,the permanent silver and steel shade 098 ,I left one week in between. I have followed instructions and still end up with streaky blond ,I even brush through my with products on it and waited 30 minutes,very disappointed with your products and out of pocket to tune of £12.00

I applied this colour on to bleached blonde and It's definitely more of a blue/purple colour rather than a silver. Quite dark. The colour freedom silver blonde colour is much better if you're looking for a silver tone.

I used the u71 permanent silver dye. I've been always suffered with yellow tones although used the best purple shampoo and toners. Tried a lot. I've been really impressed by the silver permanent hair dye. Just used it on my yellow brassy parts and the result is amazing!!! Highly recommend for all girls who what ashy silvery blonde hair. The after treatment what comes in a box also lovely left my hair very healthy and glossy. Love this product going to buy more. Spent a lot for hairdresser but now I see not that hard to fix your bleached hair to turn a lovely cool tone. Thanks for this product also its a bargain for £5.00. very satisfied
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Glad to hear you're loving our LIVE Metallic Silver, Patricia! Thanks for taking the time to leave your review.
