Wella Kolestint Hair Colour Review

Hi friends :-)

Today i am reviewing Wella kolestint hair colour which was sent to me by the company's PR for a review.I chose two is "Black" and another one is "Dark brown".I thought i will colour my hair dark brown and my mom's black.But i couldn't colour my hair because as per the instructions the hair which is going to be coloured should be completely  free of any previous hair colour/treatments..I had henna treated hair so i had to skip it and i asked my mom to model for me for this review.Let us move on to the review now..

The packaging looks like this:

Price: Rs.519.

If you want to know any other details or see what other colours are available click here:

I was so diappointed when i first opened the package.There was no special care taken while packaging(like bubble wrap or sturdy outer cover).Botht he boxes were wrapped i some thin plasticThaila kind of cover.And look what happened to the boxes! grrrr...

Even my friend and fellow blogger deeptima faced this very same problem.But thankfully none of the content inside the boxes were badly damaged.

So this is what you get inside the box:

The instruction leaflet says the following:

Back of the leaflet

I read all the instructions carefully and then decided to use the whole cream at a time because my mom's hair is soooooo long and thick(her hair is naturally black in colour with some grey hairs here and there).

So first i applied the whole contents of pre colouration treatment to my mom's hair,combed them and then i wore the gloves,emptied the whole colour creme in to the bottle of cream developer and shook it until it reached a thick creamy consistency.

TIP 1: You can apply vaseline or any other petroleum jelly all along the hair line to prevent unwanted stains.

TIP 2: If you accidentally stain your facial skin/any other area then take a cotton ball,dip it in "savalon" and keep rubbing the stained area until it disappers.It's that simple and you will get rid of those stains within a few minutes.This is a tried and tested tip. :-)

Then i started to apply the colour directly from the bottle by parting sections of hair starting from the middle of the head and then moving outwards.I first concentrated on covering her grey hair and then normal hair.I finished applying the entire cream taking care to cover each and every strand of her hair.The quantity was perfect for her long hair.I told her leave it for 45 min and after 45 min she rinsed it off with warm water and applied the conditioner as instructed.

Rinsing off the colour was such a pain.It took nearly 4-5 large buckets of water to rinse it off completely!! (we don't have a shower).My mom used many hair colours at home before but none of them took this long to rinse off.So this was the biggest con for her.

I heard from many bloggers and users that this doesn't give a major chnage in their hair colour when they used a colour that was different from their natural hair colour(like dark brown,medium brown,burgundy etc.,).however in my mom's case the black colour worked perfectly well in intensifying her naturally black hair and also covered her grey hair too.So this is how her hair looked before and after colouring:


After: (without and with flash)

Her hair was so soft,smooth,glossy and the colour was so intense.It covered all her grey hair very well but when i was checking if there are any grey hair left i found this:

Did you see that Reddish colour?? I am clueless about this! why did this happen!?(if any one of you know the reason then please tell me).


* Enhances and gives intense colour to your hair colour when you use the same colour as your hair's natural colour.(not artificial looking intensity..It looks very natural and healthy)
* Hair feels soft,smooth and glossy after rinsing off.
* It covers grey hair really well and since this is a permanent hair colour it is a very good option for those who have grey hair.
* Smells really good unlike other hair colours which smell sort of chemical and pungent.
* Very less ammonia content(I heard that it washes off with water and doesn't harm your hair)


*Takes loads of water and time to rinse off.(A big con for those who live i a town/city with less water supply)
*Gave reddish colour to some of the grey hair(IDK if this a con or not because i don't know what is the exact reason that caused this :-/ )
*Quite expensive.

I am quite impressed with the results on my mom's hair.So if you want this hair colour to work for you then choose a colour that is very close to your natural hair colour and if you are lookin for a hair colour that changes your current colour then skip it.

I'll rate this product after seeing how long the colour lasts.

I'll update you on how long the colour lasted and also will let you know how the dark brown colour turned out when if i get a chance to use it(If i don't get a chance next time i'll pester my dad to model for me :P :D)


Note: This product was sent to me by the company's PR for a review.But this doesn't affect my honest opinion. :-) and also this review is based on my mom's personal experience.It may or may not work the same way for you.


  1. Great review!! Your mom's hair is just gorgeous!!

  2. Nice Detailed Post Siri :)
    Since I've never colored my hair, can't say why the reddish color appears, but I feel it makes it more obvious how much grey hair a person has bcoz the red color strands become visible.

  3. @Rakshanda: ThanQ rakshanda.. :-)) and ya my mom's hair is so gorgeous! I envy her for that.

  4. @Zestful Uzma: ThanQQ uzma :-)) ya..u r right..but thank god they are not on the they are not that obvious.

  5. Nice review Siri..mine didn't break and thankfully reached safely!! :D :D My color is still intact...lets see how long it stays..but I've not experienced any bad effect on my hair...They feel silky and soft!! :D :D :D

  6. Nice Review... even i got my product in bad condition.. :( but it worked for me.. m happy.. but ya as many said the colour mentioned on the box looks different on hair.. :P
    i really like the conditioner though..

  7. @calicoaster: Glad that yours reached safely :-) oh think this colour scores on that part only :D

  8. @Deeptima: Ya..i know.. :( that's why i mentioned your name there.I think the conditioner is the star product of the whole kit.They should seriously think about developing individual conditioners now :P :D

  45. I think that everything said made a lot of sense. However, think
    about this, suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn't good, however what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean "Wella Kolestint Hair Colour Review" is a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo's
    home page and note how they write article headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
