9/11/2013 “Thank you so much for introducing me to :”Olio Mirage” and “Soothing Fluid”. I am also loving the high lift series just as much as the the rest of the color line. I am looking forward to expanding into the entire line. I am passing on the message , Compagnia Del Colore is awesome!!.” TONI MONDRAGON | ABCH Evaluator |Educator/The Colourdragon Enterprises | Denver, Colo.
8/23/2011 ”What I have used so far has been great. The hair is shiny and consistent gray coverage and beautiful tones. I did use the AF line as well with the universal developer and it worked out great as well, and our clients had no reactions which is a plus since that was an issue with all other lines including myself.I am very impressed with the advanced technology that CDC uses when developing the colors as well as with the product line.” Dani Prefontaine D & PRE academy | Carlsbad, CA
8/23/2011 ”I love your color line the best I have ever worked with in all the 20+ years I have been in the business.” Michele Taber (New York)
8/20/2011 “I have been licensed since 2001 and used to work for Toni and Guy. I came back into the military in 2006 and since have deployed to Iraq 3 times. When I found your company I was looking for someone that required a license to buy from, so I knew I was receiving quality products. You and your staff have always gone above and beyond and I have always sang your praises to my fellow Soldiers. I have used your products to keep our females and myself, looking fabulous through out our long, and of course, not glamorous deployments. I ordered this batch of color and bleach to take one of our Officers from her red hair to a beautiful blonde. I will take before and after photos and you are more than welcome to post them. You just have to send us the link! Thank you again for always going above and beyond and for being such a hands on and personal company. We all appreciate your support and I will pass on your best wishes to all my fellow comrades!” SGT Holly Hinton
11/4/2010 “I am from Brazil but live in Dallas , Texas..I have been using the haircolor more than one year and I am really happy…and I learned much more on the Mag’s class in Dallas last monday…she is great…after the class I understand why the hair after color is so shiny and never fades…and the perfect coverage for the gray…my clients are really happy, Thanks!!” Jaqueline Otero (Texas)
3/28/2010 Via AskMags.com ”I have to rave, rave, rave about the CDC color. Have been a Logics user since I started doing hair 15 years ago and the coverage of the CDC is wonderful. It is great for gray coverage. I have found that I am very partial to the NS series. I use it alot. My absolute favorite formula is on a level 5- 65% white. I mix 6NS and 6.34 and it is a beautiful auburn. I have been playing with it for a while now, and tinkering with formulas here and there, but it definately a color line that will always be in my salon!” Rachel Dunbar, Tennessee
”I love love love it too! beautiful coverage.” Jord, Illinois
’I love CDC, too! Can’t say enough about it. Honestly, there is not one thing I dislike about the colour.” Mushie, Toronto Canada.-
“Here is another avid cdc lover. My color clients are 90 percent or more of my business since I switched over to cdc. The results speak for themselves.” Tonya Bartley, Studio 29 Hair Design Alberta Canada
12/8/2009 Thank you so much for all the info!!!! I am anxious to share my delight with you regarding CDC. I started researching your product like 5-6 weeks ago. I was currently using Goldwell, and although satisfied, I have still been in search of a product that I can love and support their philsophy concurrently.
Today, my own hair was in dire need of a touch up. I received my color order from Haircared last evening and immeidately took it to my salon and organized the order. I was in awe of the packaging and immediately started to fall in love. The swatch book is amazing! It is so user friendly for both the artist and the patron. I love how the book falls open to the middle and you can see all the colors without turning a page. (Sometimes it’s the small things that matter!)
I “borrowed” a couple of tubes for my own color and proceeded to tackle the task. I was pleasantly suprised and realized that I was not overwhelmed by ammonia when I opened the tube, (I did read the manual pdf and was aware of the low ammonia content). The process was for the first time in a long time not only tolerable, but enjoyable. The scent is pleasing, very little “tingling” on the scalp, and NO STAINING!!!!! I use a level 5 and usually spend a great amount of time trying to remove the stains from the color that was intended to cover the “natural platinums” that age is gifting me!!
So, in the end, I just wanted to thank you for a quality product! My hair has immense shine and felt awesome immediately post color. I am thrilled to offer CDC in my salon!! And the cost, I feel like so much more of a savvy business woman today for empowering myself with a quality product at a price that allows me to stay competitive in our down economy without pinching my accounts payable!!!!!
I look forward to a long-term professional relationship with compagnia Del Colore and cannot wait to share the benefits of the products with my clients and peers! Lori Allen-Cleland, Designer/Colorist (California)
11/19/2009 Haircared, I just wanted to say thank you for offering such a great deal on your color right before the holidays. It shows that you really care about the hairdressers in these tough economic times by offering such a great deal. Thank you and keep up the good work. Arnold Anaya Studio 101 (Texas)
11/16/2009 Thank you so much for this!(Thanksgiving Promo) We are so thankful to have such a wonderful color line to work with and to have such awesome people as you to do business with. We appreciate all you do! We hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving! Love and blessings, Ah!Capelli Staff (New Mexico)

10/9/2009 I received my shipment today…thank you ! I can’t wait to use the color on my clients….I colored my hair with the product and loved the smell of the product. The shine is great and thanks for sending the shampoo/conditioner samples … I wanted to try them but forgot to ask. I love love love this color line Stacey Rippy Salon de la Lune (South Carolina)
9/15/2009 I wanted to let you know that the CDC Color Care products are out-selling my high end Loreal Serie Expert. An 8oz bottle of Loreal Shampoo retails for 25.00 and the 5oz conditioner also retails for 25.00. I have given out the sachet samples of Color Care and everyone that has tried it has come back to purchase a retail size of both shampoo and cond. All the people who purchased the CDC have said that it was the shine in CDC hair color that convinced them to try the CDC shampoo and conditioner. Keep up the great job and thank you to CDC. Arnold Anaya Studio 101 (Texas)
9/10/2009 I have been using the haircolor and so far I love the results. I have been trying all types of hair color from Rusk to TIGI and have not been able to get the shine, that I am happy to say, I am getting with this color. The advantages I see with CDC in comparison over Rusk and TIGI lines is the number of color choices, coverage was a big issue on predominately grey hair on the other lines, ease of application with a bottle instead of a bowl and brush, and overall shine of the hair. Celeste Cupelli (Michigan)
8/14/2009 Via askmags.com Great results on 100% grey. I had one of my regular clients in today that we used to use Alfaparf 6.46. I switched her formula to CDC using 6(24ml)+6.4(4ml)+6.6(4ml)+20 volume.I have done her hair for 10 years and this new formula is the best I have ever used on her, it looked better than Majirel and Koleston Perfect ever did and it was far shinier. Loving Compagnia Del Colore and so are my clients. Arnold Anaya Studio 101 (Texas)
4/12/2009 Cdc is a superior haircolor line. I have been a hair colorist for 14 years and am pleased with the performance of the product as well as the service i receive from javier and his staff. I find that cdc has the perfect mix of durability and shine that my clients and i are looking for in a professional haircolor line. The hair is left soft and manageable after service and the grey coverage is amazing. I choose cdc to be he haircolor line of my salon because it is dependable, beautiful, and conditoning. Jennifer Rabideau owner HaloSalon and Color Lab (Texas)

Lori Weatherman Elektra Salon (Norh Carolina)
11/2/2008 Just wanted to let you guys know that ALL of my clients thus far have been extremely happy with the CDC color. Friday, I had the opportunity to experiment a bit with a “glaze” on two clients – one needing some gray coverage around the face, the other needed major gray coverage between hi-lites.
Client 1: Natural Dark hair wanted no red and no blond. Was skeptical of all over permanent color and has very thick, coarse hair. Used the Tobacco on wet hair for 15 minutes and got fantastic results. She loved it and I hit the roots and pulled through after 10 minutes for a perfect natural blend.
Client 2: Had been going to someone 35 miles away since she could not find anyone local that she liked. He had been hi-liting to “blend in her gray” making it less noticeable – so he said. I touched up hi-lites with high lift 11.0 and glazed all over on wet hair with the Beige Blonde formula you have in the manual. She could not believe her hair – it toned the gray beautifully, toned down the “over blonde” from prior hi-lites, and left her hair healthy and shiny. She was very concerned since she has had two experiences in her lifetime that her hair was over processed with severe breakage. She was so pleased, the first thing she asked was how soon will I need to come back to get a retouch!
I have one more client this Saturday who is a natural level 3 and has been told by three other people in the last year that she can not go lighter all over. She was ecstatic when I told her she could and suggested a mocha. She was so excited she booked the Saturday appointment before I was completely through with blow out and style.
Really happy with your color – clients cannot believe the lack of odor (a requirement in my salon), the feel of their hair, and the shine. I love the colors, correctors, and formulas you offer. Lovin’ every minute, Liz Harrell, Manager Serendipity Salon and Day Spa
9/29/2008 Just wanted to drop a line and tell you a couple of things:
1. I am a brand new customer and have now been open 1 week. I used the color for the first time last Tuesday and everything I read is true! GREAT color, feel, and shine. The only time I have any hint of a chemical smell was during my mixing – away from the client who later mentioned that the color actually smelled good.
2. Since we are just starting out, I had to stick to budget so I still have colors I intend to get. The color book is fantastic and the basics for the “purpose” of certain numbers is easy to follow. I worked with pure color lines in the past and it could get rather complicated to produce a “buttery blonde” or “irish red”. Not so with your line.
3. I truly appreciate the Prohairsalons site offering the products direct to consumers and a cut to the salons. I am not in a position to expand the line in my shop as yet but I intend to add as soon as things start cooking.
It is really great to see a manufacturer that cares about their clients. And to think, I found you with a Google search and a little research! It was definitely my lucky day! Thanks for all YOUR efforts to my MY efforts pay off, Liz Harrell Manager Serendipity Salon and Day Spa
6/14/2008 “My new client Marie called me today. Her former stylist was “considered a top colorist” in my town. Marie went by today and showed her the new CDC color I did and the gal just looked at her and said ” That sure is different. Who did that?” Marie told her that she has had more compliments in a day than she had in 3 years going to her. Via askmags.com Linda from Redding California .-
6/11/2008 I have never done business with a company like “haircared.com”. Javier goes over and beyond with his kindness and caring about the buyer… I have had a few problems with shipping, and he has been more than accomodating to me in every area of getting me my orders! I once had a box delivered that had been split open and repackaged… there was some damage to products, and he immediately sent replacements with a speedy delivery…
He puts little presents in the orders like new bowls and brushes, and helps me with shipping expenses.. I SO appreciate all his efforts! I received an order today and he gave me a couple of posters.. I was surprised.. I immediately hung them up and my clients complemented on how nice they were and what a good advertisement for CDC!
CDC is THE BEST colorline I have ever used… I have been in the industry for over 30 years, and so far, have not used another color line that gives beautiful shine and full coverage for grey hair, as CDC does. And you cannot beat the price…
It is the best!…….. And so is Javier… Your color product….. colors me happy! May your business “Boom” Javier… and with the way you treat your clients,,, there is no question in my mind that it won’t! Via askmags.com Susan from New York .-

6/11/2008 Haircared has always gone way beyond what other companies normally do. I also really appreciate the personal touch. It has allowed me to expose more clients to their great products. Thank you so much! Via askmags.com Linda from Redding Ca .-
6/11/2008 Javier always goes over and beyond! he is so helpful! i have been using this product for over two years and i agree with Mags, it is the best color i have ever used. sales reps tend to do great offers in the beginning and than they stop. javier has stayed consistent! thanks javier!

5/30/2008 I have had a chance to finally play with the CDC. Very happy!!! Predictable shiny soft results. I have only been back in the salon since November and predict I will be fully booked by next October with no wiggle room. I am very happy!!! I ordered some of the CDC hair care line to throw on the back bar. I am addicted to the CDC Nourshng Cream conditioner. Here in Texas I am out in the sun a lot. I live on a ranch and have horses. And I play in the chlorine and sand with my 3 year old. Needless to say I play and work hard. I also have to use bleach on my hair to get it blonde. My hair takes a severe beating. The CDC Nourishing cream has been one of the only products I have found so far that really gives my hair condition and shine without “attracting” a lot of dust and dirt. I was using the Kenra masque, which was my fav, but at the end of the day my hair was a mess of dirt and pollen. Not so with the CDC. I have been missing it too as I gave my friend my jar out of my shower. Jennifer Cabela from Texas
2/17/2008 ”Just wanted to let you know that I have a client who is addicted to the Schwarzkopf color that I usually use on her. She had an appointment yesterday and unfortunately I was out of the color I needed for her. CDC to the rescue!!!! I told her I wanted to use a fabulous new color line on her and she FREAKED!! She almost changed her appointment until I calmed her down and told her she would love how it would look and feel after her color service. You know how you have these clients who are just looking for something, anything to go wrong so she can say “I told you so!!” Well, her color was AMAZING and she couldn’t stop touching her hair afterwards. She kept saying how shiney and soft her hair felt. Kudos to Compagnia Del Colore and you mags!!!! Love this line!!!” Via askmags.com Stacy from Florida
1/24/2008 “What is so great about CDC? Well, after using and relying on the same color lines for almost 30 years in my salon, and having been an educator and field rep for that company, all I can say about Compagnia Del Colore is:
WHY OH WHY drive an OLD, out of date, broken down Ford Pinto when you can drive a brand new shiny Cadillac for about the SAME price!!!!
There are WAY too many reasons TO use CDC, than not.
CDC = the Cadillac of all haircoloring.
Whats The greatest thing about using CDC?
If you ever have a question or problem,,,ASKMAGS.com!!” Via askmags.com Brian from Kansas
1/23/2008 ” I love the smell of CDC and from what little I have used it is super super shiny — which I think keeps the hair looking really healthy and that is a plus. The older we get we tend to lose that ‘shine’ and it really does put it right back.” Via askmags.com SHARON from Washington
“I’m always trying different color lines and CDC is still my fav. It just stays in the hair better then any of the other lines I’ve tried. It’s very shiny, it really does make the hair look healthy. I like the consistency of it and the smell is very mild, pleasant and not over bearing. I like the tube size and it tends to go a longer ways than other lines I’ve been working with. Also, great as a Demi too. “ GLAMOUR from California
12/7/2007 “Socolor is all I had ever used before CDC. I didnt think I had any problems with it, until I started using CDC.” Via askmags.com JORD from Illinois
“I tried cdc on a 100 percent client and it covered beautifully. She loved it and now wants me to color it all the time. It covered better than my KP ever has.” BARTLEYG from Canada
” Like Jord, I didn’t realise how much I didn’t like Socolor until I started using CDC! Socolor is VERY flat colour and it seemed to me that I always had an orangey brassy look, and yes even using the AA series. The 500 series did cover very well but was always warm. I know that you have to formulate to account for ULP but still it was overall just a warm line with little variation in the shades. Now that is all in comparison to CDC – which I LOVE!!” CARE from Canada
“if you like So Color,,you would LOVE CDC!! Its 100 times better in EVERY way! The best part is that we have Mags to help us if we need it! CDC is her baby,,,,she can tell you anything you could ever want to know about it! Just try one of the starter kits in the shades you use the most,,,they are very economical, and a great way to try the color. Once you use it,,,you’ll see what professional haircolor is SUPPOSED to look like, and you’ll never again look at haircolor the same way. CDC makes every other product totally obsolete, and very poor performing,,,,its like comparing a brand new Cadilac to a 1970 Orange Ford Pinto!” BRIAN from Kansas
12/5/2007 “I’m sold. I had a client come in Tuesday for her second retouch with CDC. We used to use Redken Color Gels. I have done her hair for at least 10 years now. She sat in my chair and said “I LOVE this color ! The best you have ever used!” It hasn’t faded AT ALL. She usually comes back almost blonde. Soft and shiney and it looks real. Hey, she’s happy, I’m happy.” Via askmags.com HAIRMAGICIAN65 from Delaware
“Last night my client/friend came over for a visit and she said that she got rave reviews on her hair color from 2 “high-end” salons recently. One was in Miami when she was on a business trip getting her nails done, and the other was in New Jersey when she was getting a massage and facial. They both said the color was incredible and wanted to know what it was.” TIKI from New Jersey
“Tiki,Doesn’t that make you feel great! You’ll have a client for life. I have a few cients that went somewhere else because they couldn’t afford to pay my prices but they came back because of the results of the color.” LINDATB from California
11/29/2007 ” I did a 100 percent grey coverage on my client today. She is a 73 year old who has been box coloring for years. She loved her color and now I have a new color client as long as I use CDC. Well, Yipeeee. Thats four clients sold on the color. I am so pumped about this line. The more I read and use it the more I think there is nothing like it.” Via askmags.com BARTLEYG from Canada
11/12/2007 The knowledge Mags gives is so priceless. We are so fortunate to have such a great educator and a great color/product line. It means so much to have support from people who have the same love of our profession.” Via askmags.com AHCAPELLI SALON from New Mexico
9/22/2007 “We have been looking at changing out Goldwell (due to their second price increase within a year). We have used Wella KP and Color Touch with less than impressive results. There is nothing wrong with the color, it’s just when compared to Goldwell it was too different a change for us.
We have also been using Paul Mitchell The Color and PM Shines. We have been impressed and not impressed with PM Shines. We like The Color over all and the shine is better than Goldwell or the Wella as far as the permanent color goes. We were pretty much set on making the switch to Paul Mitchell until…..
We give CDC (Compagnia Del Colore) a shot. After checking out the color line again, I had seen it before and kinda poked around the line, I decided to give it a shot so I ordered a intro kit and have used it for the past 2 days. I have to say that I wasn’t wanting to like it (sorry Mags), but I have to say that after using it on a few clients I’m really liking the results. I like the texture and consistency of the color. I like the results, the color is very even root to ends and the smell is nice. It has been an easy transition for us to make coming from Goldwell. Maybe it because we have been working with different lines that it’s easy to transition to this one, I don’t know but it is just easy and we don’t worry or second guess ourselves with formulation. I like the cost factor, I like the packaging and think that it will look stylish sitting on the color bar and the company has been very attentive. I also like that the color company doesn’t make a competing color like for retail sale at drug stores (Wella and Clariol). If things keep going this way, we will have a winner in the color battle.” Via Hairmaven.com Bahaus Studio (California) & Hairmaven.com .-
6/28/2007 I am so glad that there are actually people who are taking a stand for stylists and against product diversion because it always hurts the stylists more than anything. Stylists are breaking their backs trying to earn a living and many of them honestly want to believe that these big time manufacturers are on their side. Many stylists defend the industry and blame diversion on some shady characters loading product on a truck, but they fail to see exactly how organized this diversion monster is and that the very companies they defend and support are simply using them as cheap advertisements for larger financial ambitions. Mass retail. Audrey Sivasothy, Author of “Salon Exclusive? The truth about hair salon product diversion.“
4/6/2007 I received the posters and products..I am ready for the Trade Show. My clients can not wait to get these products on my shelves. I have been using everything on them. It is truly amazing the results of their hair. Dried fuzzy over processed hair looks alive and movable, with shine and luster. I will be ordering again soon. I am also using the color I purchased in the into kit. Love them. After I get the retail all settled I will be stretching into the hair color. Thanks again, It is a pleasure doing business with you. The shipping is good, the product is good, customer relation is very good as well…A+ on your report Javier. …Malhalo Sami Aloha Salons
3/28/2007 I’m going to use the CDC today to tone my hair. Those boxes and tubes are beautiful – like art, I think! And the smell of the color creme and developers are incredible!! Ty Chamberlain Chromatologist
3/14/2007 I just wanted you to know how much all my clients are loving the Color Care shampoo and the Nourishing Conditioner. Marianne of Redding was a faithful Pureology user. I told her the Nourishing Conditioner by Compagnia del Colore was superior and I was sure she would switch when she tried it. She phoned last week to say I was right. She absolutely loved it and it was the best conditioner she had ever used and what impressed her the most was the feel of her hair after just a few times. Thank you guys for bringing us great non-diverted products. Linda Trimble Boles Class act Salon
2/16/2007 On Tuesday of this week I received my intro color kit…I have had the chance to work with only about 5 shades so far and I wanted to let you know my overall feeling about the line.
For the last 2 1/2 years I have been the Master educator for a large spa in the St. Louis area during this time we worked with the DAVINES line and enjoyed the color very much…I have attended the world tour for Davines as an invited guest. About 8 months ago I left the spa and opened my own studio. I have been in the beauty industry for 31 years and am a licensed Instructor as well as cosmetologist…I also produce my own wet line private label for my studio. I have an old friend who produces the Renbow line and recently we have been using it. I like the beeswax formula… well enough about me back to your line…
If you were here I would kiss you! The color is fantastic! it is to me a cross between the beeswax technology of Ranbow with the micro Pigments of Davines….I am Thrilled to find a company the has such a great product and will be placing an order to fully stock my studio with your line…Thanks again for all of your help and we love the products. I will be referring a salon owner by the name of Lidiya she will contact you in the near future about ordering. Best Regards, Don Huey Hairdo Cafe @ Metro 3 (Missouri)
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you! Your innovative approach at assisting salons in the ability to purchase direct, empowers the small salon owner to compete against the big corporate chain salons and eliminate the middle man (distributors). Most of all, with the majority of popular hair care companies merging into big corporate giants, salon retail sales suffer greatly with the constant diversion issues. Your business will be a BIG SUCCESS as your timing in the market is perfect. Salons are plain FED UP with all the politics and diversion currently taking place in the salon industry.” Randy Fuller Independent Stylist Cloud Nine Salon and Spa
