Madison Reed Reviews
The product irritated my scalp - as soon as the colorist (done at a Madison Reed salon) put it on it started burning and itching. I kept it on as long as I could but after 25 mins I was in such discomfort that I asked to wash it off. Overall the color chosen (by the MR colorist) was a bit to reddish for my ash brown hair. On the plus side, the color does not wash out.
My experience at the Sherman Oaks salon was not good - you would think they would take their time for a first time customer to love the brand and choose the right shade. Instead I was given a dirty iPad to look at shades (without the benefit of seeing how it would look on me as you can do on the website). Instead felt the colorist really rushed me to make a choice rather than match my color.
