oVertone Hair Conditioners
« on: 15 Aug 15 / 12:30 AM »
I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with the brand oVertone? "The oVertone conditioners are vegan color-depositing formulas that keep your fantasy hair color bright or add fantasy color to your natural colored or bleached strands."

I can only find super positive reviews of it elsewhere. It sounds too good to be true, but I am very curious to try this out. If shipping weren't as much as the sample size, I would probably be less hesitant to order it.

I think it is a very expensive way to sell colour, very clever marketing. Putting a really good quality dye like Special Effects in your regular conditioner will work out at a fraction of the cost and do the same job.

I definitely agree with wicked pixie here, just mix some of a normal semi dye in to cheap conditioner and you're good to go. This stuff is overpriced, and made for the hipster market who are dying their hair bright because it's in fashion now, but don't know much about semi dyes.

Yeah, I agree as well. Also, change your hair colour as most of us do a lot and you're stuck with a bottle of conditioner you can't use! No point when you can make it yourself.

I like them. The spearmint scent is refreshing and they deposit color really well. Although I've only tried their extreme formulas. You could mix your own, but I haven't liked the results when I mix my own color-depositing conditioner. It's the lazy mermaid's best friend.

I've used extreme red, purple, and am waiting for the purple to fade a bit more before I try to blue. Eventually I may buy the other colors to move my way around the color wheel as I wish.

Another note on making your own: It is definitely cheaper. It works well for a lot of people and you can make a TON of it depending on how pigmented you want your color to be. 8oz (largest size Overtone carries) doesn't last long for some.

To sum it all up, I absolutely adore Overtone conditioners, but if I'm strapped for cash I'll make my own color-depositing conditioner.

(Sorry if this is considered bumping)

Desperate to keep my green hair, I ordered two sample sizes of a green and a teal. They smell great, but did little to help my hair color stay put. I probably needed to order the deep conditioner, but since I mix two colors, that's $60 I'm not willing to spend. Should've known they were too good to be true

Also want to add to this question and apologize if this is bumping... but something in their FAQ confused me

"How is oVertone different from my homemade cocktail of dye + white conditioner?

This is our favorite question! The oVertone conditioners were created as a bigger and better answer to color fading, with a massive advantage over a mix of deposit only dye and standard white conditioner.

1. First and foremost, all hair dyes contain a heavy amount of various alcohols in them - this is how semi permanent dyes open the cuticle of your hair to deposit as much color as possible. It's a great process for dyeing, but also means that regular use of these dyes once or twice a week can seriously dry out your hair, especially if it's already been bleached and processed in other ways. The oVertone conditioners are free of these heavy alcohol contents, which means you can refresh your color AND keep your strands healthy.

2. What's more, if you're mixing those dye-based alcohols with a regular white conditioner, you're not only preventing the healthy oils and emollients from doing their jobs, but you can also screw with the pH balance of your mixture in a way that messes with your color and the health of your hair. All of the oVertone products are balanced to heal your hair while you stay bright and beautiful.

3. It's easier. No mixing. ;)

4. If you've got a bright color on your head, the oVertone Vibrant and Extreme lines provide more color per teaspoon than a half and half mix of dye and conditioner. You can stay SERIOUSLY bold, 24/7.

5. If you're rocking a pastel shade, you don't have to worry about the splotchiness that can come from off balance pH or so-so mixing. Your pale color will be the same tone every single time, no guess work required."

Specifically looking at the first two. Aren't most dyes people use to get "fantasy" colors conditioning in themselves? After much browsing on this thread I thought it would not be damaging to create this concoction of dye and conditioner.

Maybe true, to an extent. I would guess their claims as exaggerated as usual. I mean, if it's true that direct dyes work like that (and it likely is, I don't actually know for sure right now) then it does make you wonder how effective the colour can be in their product.

At this point I'd still rather spend less money and deal with the slight damage I might be getting from normal direct dyes  than buy this product.
