Beauty Product Recall: Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color

Company removes boxes of dye due to mismatching mix-up

Time to check your beauty supplies! Procter & Gamble recently recalled 10 shades of Clairol Natural Instincts because the kits may cause an unwanted color. The affected boxes contain an incorrect color-boosting packet (used two weeks after the initial application) that could turn your locks a different hue.

The company plans to remove the items from store shelves, but says that the main Colorant, Color Activating Crème and Color Treat Conditioner in the package are still safe to apply and will deliver the desired shade. Just remember to discard the Week 2 ColorFresh! Revitalizer sachet to prevent any dye mishaps.

If you've purchased any of the recalled shades (listed below), call Clairol for a full refund at 866-493-0512. If you've already used the ColorFresh! Revitalizer and need assistance, call the company at 800-252-4765 for hair help.

These shades of Clairol Natural Instincts have been recalled:

-- Shade 16 Light Auburn (Spiced Tea)
-- Shade 35 Brown Black (Ebony Mocha)
-- Creme Shade 03G Light Golden Blonde (Honey Creme)
-- Creme Shade 7.5 Dark Blonde (Maple Creme)
