Customer reviews
Recommended by a friend who knows about hair care. This stuff works well on stubborn grey hair at the temples. I think it is strong hydrogen peroxide type spray. Spray it on the temples a few minutes before coloring hair to improve hair color penetration. Works well for me. Don't use too much. Apparently this product is intended to be sold to hair stylists.
