Hi Sue. I'm blonde, and coal tar shampoo have never stained my hair, nor has the gel stained my skin. Been using it for about 20 years, (on and off). I guess you like your new color? lol.

And no I don't usually stare in mirror at hair,I just glance at face to Vaseline eyelids and scales on face , wondering if it was a combination of coal tar and heavy duty cream for scalp to be used sparingly

Yes Michelle saves my dying the grey out,it has to be the shampoo or the combo 50/500 it's changed in a fortnight,not worried being redder just blends in with rest of me

haha Sue, well its beneficial if it covers up the grey,i think i need some of that though it dosnt matter as i have my lid/helmet on my head anyway :) i think mine used to go reddish in colour years ago from coal tar, maybe depends on what product ones uses? :)

Oh wow not noticed that before but my hair is now it's natural shade for the first time in about 20 years! When I used coal tar shampoos it was when I dyed my hair reddish tones anyway so I don't know if it would have turned my natural colour red...

Daughter visited me at house I'm housesitting about third thing she said what have u done to your hair it looks fantastic,lol,told her I'm on this support site and posted if she notices it's true,its the shampoo,even said it's really grown alot too,ummm just saw her last weekend,left my shampoo at my house bit worried now after 2 compliments on my hair if I keep using said shampoo will it keep going redder,lol,only washed it twice last week,i think the growth has to do with the scales releasing on scalp hence head not tight anymore thanks to the 50/500 script,still a few stubborn bits,flakes really have subsided from head alot

I use coal tar shampoo but find it’s not doing much to help my flakes , I really don’t like the smell of the shampoo either. My hair needs it’s dose of colour on it but don’t like to use it when my scalp is flakey.

My hair used to be plum but I looked like a Casper with a burning head. Love the red color on hair.
