Generally, I am not impressed with this product at all.

First, my nails have gone dark grey / black. Initially this was just under the nail (which I could scrap out), but now after 10 uses over 14 days the whole nail on the first two fingers for both hands are stained. And yes I have a nail brush in the shower, and scrubbed my hands after use.

Second, despite the warnings and my attempts, I still have some splatter stain marks in the shower. And yes, I would spray water around and use my hand and a clothe to wipe around, to try and get everything visible, but I've found staining the next day when it's dry

Finally, after all that, I don't know much of a change after 10 uses.

      Comments about Control GX Shampoo:

      I love this product. Stopped using regular JFM as color eventually looked strange, unnatural, after several treatments. But with this, wonderful results. I had a lot of grey and didn't want to have suddenly dark black hair and worry about constant touch ups. With this, i can maintain a nice darker look with a lot less gray than before and that looks more natural and appropriate for my age. Extremely easy to use. No staining on face or hands. Superb product!

          Wow, at first I was OK; Grecian formula 44... but no...This is the best product since sliced bread.. I use it daily, no problem, I am able to keep a little grey around the top of my ears.. but hey, I'm 64 not 24.. the look is so natural.. I've been coloring my hair so long I don't even know my real hair color(lol). JFM only products. This is the best thing I have used in 35 years. Read the instructions and follow them.

                At first I thought I wouldn't try it, but after using it for approximately 6 months now, it's absolutely great. At 66 years old I had turned gray entirely too early, now, I feel better with the coverage I have, and really, lots of compliments.

                    I always use it for longer than suggested...at least 5 minutes each time. It darkens my hair quicker than if I only do a minute each time. It still leaves some grey even with leaving on that long. If you don't want anyone to know you are coloring your hair, a minute at a time would be better because it would be more gradual, but I don't care if anyone knows I color mine so I keep it on longer. This product actually works as advertised. I just wonder how it colors some hairs and not others? Must be some sort of difference in hair dna from one strand to another...pretty cool.

                        Comments about Control GX Shampoo:

                        I've used Just For Men products for years. I started with the regular product, and when it became available I switched to Touch of Gray -- I figured it wouldn't look natural in a man of my age to have total dark coverage. Now I am using Control GX Shampoo and I love it. The amount of darkening is controllable to a degree that wasn't possible with the other products. I like that there's no worrying about timing. As long as you keep it on at least a minute, you're good. The darkening doesn't seem to continue after that, so leaving it on three or four minutes instead of just one doesn't hurt anything. Best of all, it is very economical. My hair is short so I only need a small dollop or two each time I wash my hair with it. I think I will end up spending a lot less on it over the course of a year than I would have with Touch of Gray (sorry, JFM!). I just have to be careful not to massage it into my hair using my fingertips. I took one star off "ease of use" for that reason, but really, it's not a big deal if you pay attention to what you're doing. Great product!

                                    I called in advance & ControlGX folks said it would work in pure white hair. I imagine that it does a good job with brown to grey hair, but it gave my white hair a bluish-grey tone that looked pretty "cheap". Maybe it was just "my" type hair, but white hair folks be careful!

                                      Comments about Control GX Shampoo:

                                      This product does what it says, gradually cha ges gray to a darker gray that looks naturally and not like other products that changes your hair color too drastically. My only complaint is that around my hairline and forehead has turned my skin pores black, I try to minimize exposure of the product around my forehead.
