Gray hair – sounds scary as hell , isn’t it ? Graying of hair is not just related to age but it could also start when one is in his/her teens. When hair follicles stops producing a pigment ‘melanin’ , hair starts becoming colorless and turn gray. There are some home remedies that can be followed to prevent them but there comes a stage when we can not just avoid them. Thank God for the options available to camouflage grays when no other option seems right. Today I am going to review Quick Touch 1 minute Hair Color which is an established product, manufactured in Korea and very popular in Malaysia, Singapore. It has been launched in India recently and claims to color hair in just a minute … how cool is that *cool* ? I tried this color on my dad who has been using hair dyes for quite a while now and according to me was the perfect person to share a feedback on this product
Price : 599 INR

My Dad’s Experience
My dad was all excited to try out this hair color as he had never heard of something that could cover grays in just a few minutes. Usually the application time for various hair dyes/colors available in the market these days is 30-45 minutes and Quick touch’s claim of doing its job in a minute is totally intriguing. I got two shades for him to try- Natural Black, Brown Black (My dad uses Dark brown/black brown from other brands) but I planned on reviewing ‘Natural black’ because usually this shade in many brands give an artificial look to hair and I wanted to see if its the case here as well or not.
I skipped patch test as my dad colors his hair regularly but I would recommend doing it if you are a beginner or don’t use hair colors frequently. I followed the instructions written on the box and squeezed the cream from both tubes in the ratio 1:1 on the comb brush. If you need to cover large section of grays then the plastic gloves should be a better option instead of the comb. I straight away applied it on my dad’s hair starting from root to the tips. The cream is thick , a fairly non drip formula. The comb brush makes the application easier but then it’s teeth are not long enough to reach the roots. However in order to see how well the entire kit performs, I sticked to the application using the comb. I had to mix the two creams in a bowl later on to apply the color on the roots and I observed this works better rather than taking the two creams every time on the comb and spreading it over. I asked dad to keep it for five minutes precisely post which he washed his hair with shampoo. Now coming to my dad’s experience with the hair color, this is what he thinks about it:
- First and foremost , it really does color the hair in 5 minutes *crazy* and colors each strand to perfection. This ‘black’ is the most natural black I have seen on him.
- The hair color does not irritate the scalp. He often suffers from itchiness post application but with Quick touch, he looked quite satisfied.
- It has a pleasant smell but it is nowhere near to the smell of roses *blum* This is probably the first hair color which didn’t make me feel as if I am sitting in a chemistry lab
- Even after 7 days of application, there has not been any major hair fall problem.
- The best party is it is ammonia free and leaves the hair looking shiny and lustrous ( could be due to the goodness of olive and Castor oil present in it )
I can not really comment on the staying power because it has just been 10 days from the day when dad used it. The color looks fine till now, it has not lightened or faded away.My dad had a very pleasant experience using Quick touch 1 minute Hair color and highly recommends it to everyone who color their hair. The only thing I would like the brand to introduce would be some colors targeting the young customers like golden, burgundy, auburn etc .
