I have the same problem with excessively gummy hair. eSalon has been responsive but they only sent me another order that left my hair even gummier than the first.

I washed it three times the first day and twice the second day and its still really gummy on the lengths (my hair is waist length.) I'll try the backing soda but have little hope that this will work.

Why do thy keep producing a product that is so sub-par? The old formulation was terrific.

I've been coloring my hair for 30 years. This is the first time something like this has happened. I have a heavy, waxy residue on my hair. It looks terrible. I can't style it as it's too waxy. I've washed it several times and it still remains. I ended up googling the...

Update by user Oct 23, 2017

I heard from esalon today, and they told me to do a strand test. If I don't like it, they will reformulate for free.

Fine.

And that would be easy to go, oh they did right by me. But it took 4-5 emails (I lost count) to get them to answer my question about what tones...

Hi tiffin2la,

I'm Monica, eSalon's Director of Customer Service.

We are so sorry that you felt you had to go the extra mile and sincerely apologize for your unhappy experience with our service.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. It is deeply appreciated and will help us improve.

While we’ve formulated over 150,000 custom-blended hair colors to date, the color swatches on our site only show some of our most popular colors. Due to the amount of custom colors we are able to create, we are unable to provide swatches for all of the nuanced color variations that we offer.

Your color happiness is important to us. To ensure you receive a personal color consultation next time, please email your full name and email address used to create your eSalon account to help@esalon.com to my attention so we can follow up with you.

With kind regards, Monica D. Higgins

I want to thank the Director of Customer Service at eSalon for reaching out to me. Although she and I talked we were unable to determine the cause of the hair damage other than the possibility that it had not been rinsed as thoroughly as I thought.

Anyone using eSalon please rinse, rinse and then rinse some more. They are sending me a check to cover the cost of my haircut.

I am pleased that they followed up with me. Sometimes a customer just wants to be heard and that makes all the difference.

I love the product. But their website and customer service have made me go elsewhere. You can't change your profile once you have completed it. You can't order more than one choice of hair color. Once you have placed an order, you can't change your haircolor choice...

Good customer service customizing hair color. Pleased with packaging. HOWEVER --After first try, seemed okay, but product difficult to clean from hair. Left waxy, heavy residue. Thought it was just me or an "off" batch. Auto-ship stayed on. Tried it a second time. Same...

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are glad to hear that you were pleased with our customer service and packaging.

We would like to extend our apologies for the difficult time removing the color from your hair. Our gel color is crafted from highly pigmented professional-grade dyes, which can leave a residue if not rinsed out completely per your Personalized Instructions. Fortunately, the residual color can be removed by bringing any leftover hair color in your bottle or bowl, filling it with water and mixing it together. After tilting your head back, pour the mixture onto any areas you applied color and deeply massage it for 2-3 minutes prior to rinsing.

This will seriously help to loosen any residual color and prevent staining on your scalp.

If you still have this feeling, we then suggest using a color-care clarifying shampoo to remove any of the remaining residue from your hair, leaving it feeling fresh and squeaky clean.We do have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and always want our clients to feel great about their hair color. Please dont hesitate to email us at help@esalon.com with your name and account information and we will be happy to help you any way we can.Again, we truly apologize for any inconvenience and hope to hear from you.
