Madison Reed – Hair Color with Love!

I am absolutely thrilled to be able to tell you about Madison Reed today! I, like my mother before me, have battled with premature gray hair since my late 20s. Sometimes I think those little suckers multiply in the middle of the night like rabbits. It really gets disheartening to look in the mirror and see a vibrant personality covered with old-lady-itis.

I did a makeover this spring and went from medium length hair to short hair and a new color as well. It was much redder than I expected it to be, but as happens with store-bought hair coloring that I have tried (and I’ve tried them ALL), the color lightens and begins to fade after several washings.

So when I recently learned about Madison Reed – I had to give it a shot! Check out some of the unique differences between your store brand color and Madison Reed.

About Madison Reed

Handcrafted in Italy, their special multi-tone formula comes in 27 natural and dynamic shades for sophisticated salon-quality color with unparalleled depth and shine. Their professional-grade formula provides complete coverage, especially for those tough grays! (Woo hoo!)

Their long-lasting hair color is packed with rich nutrients such as keratin, argan oil and ginseng root extract. As they state on their website, your hair does feel stronger, looks shinier and feels so much better than before you colored it! The Madison Reed formula has no ammonia or resorcinol, taking the harsh out of hair color. And it smells nice too!

Personalized Assistance

When was the last time you stood in your local supermarket or drug store looking at the multitude of hair color products and wished you had someone to help you pick out something that was right for you? I have literally spent at times a good 45 minutes checking out the different products and different colors before making up my mind on what I wanted. With Madison Reed, you can find your perfect color with their in-depth Color Advisor. Have a current brand/color that you love and want to keep? You can match your current brand with the Madison Reed Color Translator.

Want to know what’s even better? You can have a LiveChat with a Madison Reed Colorist, and you can also upload a photo of yourself and the Color Crew will check it out and recommend a color specifically right for YOU!

My personalized Madison Reed box arrived yesterday and I decided to take some before and after photos to show you how horrid my hair looked before and how wonderful it looked afterwards! As you can see – I have some really stubborn gray hair that just comes out EVERYWHERE!

My Hair Color Before Using Madison Reed

I was absolutely thrilled when I opened the box. So simple to understand, everything you need right at your fingertips with directions printed right inside the box.

So I got to work and applied the color as directed. Everything that I needed was right at my fingertips in the box and made following the instructions super easy. 35 minutes after applying the color, it was time to rinse and check out the results.

Absolutely gorgeous if I do say so myself! I adore the color that I choose – which was Sardinia Red 6NCG by the way. It was a toss-up between the Sardinia Red and the Firenze Brown 6NMG – but I wanted that touch more of red so I went with the Sardinia Red. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. The different highlights and accents, everyone has been absolutely raving about how awesome my hair looks and wanted to know where I had my hair done. They actually thought it was a professional hair coloring done in a salon! Yay me!

Want to know what else is superb about Madison Reed? You get shampoo and conditioner in every box to last you for several washings – not like the store brands where you get one tube and that’s it! Did I mention that you can schedule your Madison Reed customized color to be sent directly to your home every 4 to 6 weeks? You tell them how often you need to color your hair and they will make sure that you have a box of your custom Madison Reed color delivered direct to your door when you need it!

  1. I’m always too nervous to color my own hair. Yours looks great though! Maybe I will try this sometime.

  2. That’s a great color, it looks healthy and natural.

  2. […] That’s what I love about Madison Reed. They are revolutionizing every aspect of the at-home hair color experience. Madison Reed starts with ammonia and resorcinol-free professional grade products that are used in salons and delivers them to your door. Still afraid to color your hair at home? They’ve developed entirely new ways of finding your perfect permanent hair color – choose from an online color advisor, mobile app, live web chat, digital photo consultation or speak to a trained colorist on the phone. All of this is what makes the Madison Reed “in-home” coloring experience superior to the traditional way of coloring your hair at home. Madison Reed is turning quite a few heads in the beauty world, too – take a look at what Vogue.com had to say about them and check out my before and after photos from my recent transformation here.
