I’ve been using this product to color my grey hair for about eight years. We travel a lot, and I’ve had several hair stylist comment on what a great color this is. It’s so easy to use and my hair feels so much better, softer, shinier and healthier after I use this!
It’s such a pain to sit in a salon when you can enjoy doing this at home. Not to mention how much less expensive it is!
I have been using the same color (Dark Ash Brown) for years and ONLY this color. This last time I colored my hair, it turned my hair a very brassy red. It looked awful. I washed it the next day and unfortunately it stayed that way for a few weeks. I didn't want to color over top of it fearing that it would mess up my hair.
I've been using a combination of Light Brown and Dark Blonde to blend my grays for YEARS. The last two times I've touched up (with the NEW plastic color tube), the color has been completely different. I now have WAY more gold than I ever want in my hair. It looks awful, when before I would have a neutral, lightish brown color. Really not pleased and will not be buying this again. :-(
I HAVE BEEN USING THE SAME COLOR 01 EXTRA LIGHT ASH BLONDE. NOW WHEN I COLOR IT, IT DOESN'T DO THE EXTRA LIFT! IT LEAVES ME WITH TWO SHADES DARKER. I KNOW THEY CHANGED FROM THE METAL COLOR TUBE TO THE PLASTIC ONE.. BUT THAT MUST HAVE MENT THEY CHANGED THE FORMULA TOO! I DIDN'T MIND THE METAL TUBE! BRING IT BACK IF IT MEANS GOING BACK TO THE GREAT HAIR COLOR I HAVE BEEN USING FOR LAST 8 YEARS! THIS SUCKS! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have been using L'oreal Excellence for over 15 years. As I aged, I adjusted my shade. I was naturally Auburn (originally a 7C). As Shade changes occurred and I got older,, I began to blend 7R and 6RB to tone down the red which is brassy on older gals (and looks less than natural). At age 60, I started blending 6RB and 8RB for a very flattering and natural color (I still have the creamy ivory Irish skin and avoid sun so this color still works). This product delivers: It covers gray. It gives a healthy shine. The conditioner included really does moisturize the colored hair when done. The tube of cream for ends (use 1st) spreads easily in palms to protect those ends. The only comment I can say to those who have complained about this product is maybe they didn't follow instructions when it comes to using the product repeatedly; you do roots first, time it, then comb or blend out thru the ends. Your ends are your oldest hair and will be dry, of course! It scrubs out cleanly when done. Don't forget to leave the moisturizer (tube 3) on for a few minutes to soak in; peroxide opens the follicles of your hair and the moisturizer needs to get in there to coat & protect (as per the instructions). Great product! Good luck - get a friend to help if you are nervous.
I used light ashy blonde and it instead of lightening my hair turned darker, plus the chicken orange roots. This hair dye is very strong- could not breathe - the smell is so strong. I could not also sleep, because of the smell. It also dried my scalp. I don't recommend.
