This is a very late review, but I purchased this dye back in October of 2019. This was my first time going green and until January 31st of 2020 the green was STILL in my hair.
This is a pro and con, but this color does last. To me, I think it even fades to a nice pale green, which is a huge plus in my book. As I like to give my hair breaks from the bleaching and dying, this is a color I would recommend for how long it keeps.

(i’ve used this product before and it’s definitely 5 stars) okay just a question so I have black hair, and I wanna dye my hair that emerald green color. Should I use this and add none more black, i don’t really wanna bleach my hair, would this color alone just make my hair that emerald? or should I add a bit of none more black

Hey! Our dyes work best with pre-lightened hair. Unfortunately, semi-permanent dye will not show up on black hair to give you that emerald green. We suggest pre-lightening your hair to about a level 6-7 and then adding Kowabunga with a little bit of None More Black to achieve an emerald green! If you have any other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

I was wanting to try out GDY ever since it came out, and I got the poser paster a little while back. Because it was so good, I saved up a little money and got Kowabunga and I was absolutely AMAZED at the colour. I did a half-blue and green look with Manic Panic for the blue, and GDY outlasted MP over a week!! This is simply the best semi-permanent hair dye I have ever used and will forever be a fan.
p.s. it outlasted the colour I got done the first time professionally (which was also green) and it made my hair feel like heaven.

We finally started selling GDY in the Sally’s I work at and I was more then excited to try it out being a huge Paramore fan. It is the BEST semi-permanent color I have ever used! The color is gorgeous and it keeps my hair feeling amazing but, the most important part is the color lasts foreverrr. 1000 out of 10 will recommend to every customer and everyone I know!

Amazing! The $8 shipping still came fast af and oh man the packaging does not disappoint. I did hang it up on my wall. The dye itself is so vibrant, conditioning, and it smells amazing. The coverage is to dye for. I finally am living my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dream. Gonna go get some pizza now.

Green is my new favorite color!
I added just a touch of None More Black, as my hair is slightly warm toned, and the color is so vibrant and intense! Because I’m extra, I’ve got a spot in my bangs that is straight Kowabunga sans NMB, and it’s so beautiful and insanely vibrant! I recolor every two weeks to keep it super bright, though I’m positive I could get away with waiting longer between applications. It applies like a dream and smells absolutely fantastic. Totally recommend!
This sounds like such a cool look, please be sure to tag us in your photos on social media so we can see! Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us such kind feedback!

I had previously lightened hair and wanted to do something new. I started with a mix of Narwhal and Blue Ruin but the next day used the lightening kit and then Kowabunga. The next day I used some None More Black to create some dimension and had an awesome emerald green going on. I called it “From The Edge of The Deep Green Sea” after the song by The Cure. Very pleased with this green color. I also like how you can use it to cancel out the voilet undertones of None More Black.

I have very short hair and one whole bottle was used on mine. I mixed the green with a bit of black to get a much less bright color, I also did not bleach or lighted my hair (it’s naturally an ash blond/light brown) and it was just the color I was going for. It did fade some but after 3 months is still pretty green. I’m going to redye it to make the color more green as well as because my hair has grown out about 2 inches. Anyway I love this dye, I got just the color I wanted with it, it lasted very long, and it smells phenomenal! The first two washes after dyeing the shampoo on my hands was only very slightly green.
Thank you so much for leaving this review! We’re SO happy to hear that you were able to get the exact color you wanted from Kowabunga and None More Black. If there’s anything else we can help you with, please let us know!

I LOVE this green and I love how much product I got from one tube.
We are SO happy you love our Kowabunga! One tube has a TON of product and is usually perfect for those with shorter hair!

Okay, so all 80’s babies and 90’s kids grew up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Brian wanted to name our first toxic green shade something that would pay homage to one of his childhood classics. So, we call this one Kowabunga! – Hayley
HOW TO APPLY
1. To create the best canvas for your color, we recommend lightening your hair. Use our Lightening Kit and follow the directions to achieve the correct foundation for your color.
2. Mix color in the GDY Color Mixing Bowl and use the GDY gloves to prevent staining hands. (see GDY Tool Kit)
3. Do a strand test to insure color is as desired.
4. Section out dry hair and apply the color. Make sure color is fully saturated at every step.
5. Let the color sit for at least 30 minutes – the longer you let it sit, the more vibrant the color.
6. Rinse with cold water, gently dry your hair and style as desired.
