I should have learned my lesson long ago when it comes to L'Oreal hair color, as the Feria in Starry Night that I initially used was the pits. Ran, dripped, running down the sides of my face and continued to fade with every shampoo. Then I saw this Superior preference and thought well, hell for $10 it ought to be pretty good. Wrong! I used the black, and the crap literally ran down the sides of my face and down my back like black water! The smell was terrible! Chemicals! L'Oreal should have their haircolor product rights revoked as this is seriously bad stuff! Back to the Revlon in natural Blue Black for me. That said, Revlon may only be $4.99 per box, but they don't have to advertise. Their hair color is already clearly the best on the market. L'Oreal has ads on every magazine page becasue their haircolor clearly sucks.

I used "Dark Ash Brown" on my naturally ashy dark brown hair to even it up and cover up some pesky whites that have been peeping through- BIG MISTAKE. It somehow lightned my roots to a reddish brown and turned the rest super dark. I bought ash to get rid of any red tones, not make it red. Very frustrating!

I just used this product today, and so far, I'm very pleased with the results! As others have suggested, the color really does come very close to what is pictured on the box. I used 5 1/2 AM, Medium Copper Brown, and my hair is perhaps a bit more reddish (rather than coppery), but otherwise, it looks pretty much like the model's does. I didn't find the formula overly runny like some other reviewers mentioned (at least, no worse than other color products), and although the smell was fairly strong, it wasn't unbearable or even unexpected for a coloring product. Plus, the included conditioner had a nice scent, so my hair smells fine now; it also feels soft and looks natural. Because some people mentioned issues with the product fading quickly, I left it on a little bit longer, about 30-35 minutes instead of the recommended 25. This did not hurt my hair at all, and the color application seems nice and even. (Sometimes my roots come out too light, but I tried to avoid coloring them first--my hairstylist told me that the heat from your scalp makes the roots process more quickly.) I will try to report back if I do see color fading, but overall, I am very happy right now and would definitely buy this color again even though it is a bit more expensive than some of the others available (luckily, I got it on sale).

I've dyed my hair many times (usually with Garnier Fructis) and I've never had any problems with excessive hair loss. This morning I decided to try L'Oreal preference because it had the exact color I wanted. My hair felt so soft and silky in the shower, but after a couple minutes I noticed several large clumps of hair in the tub. Yeah, some hair falls out every time I take a shower, but this was way beyond what I normally experience. I'm too afraid to even run my hands through my hair now :(Guess I won't be able to use any heat or styling products on my hair for a while...

THIS MAKES MY HAIR FALL OUT!!! I don't know what it is this particular formula has but I have tried it twice in my life and never again...both times it made WAY too much hair come out when being washed and I already have thinnish hair...I'd like to keep most of it. I have been dying my hair for years and even with other L'oreal brands and this is the only one I have had this issue with. Too harsh...no color is worth it.

Is this my favorite hairdye? No. That honor goes to Natural Instincts. However, since NI isn't permanent, I needed a perm color to deliver the color results I wanted (red). I used Superior Preference in light auburn, and the color on the box was bright red - borderline scary. However, knowing that my hair is med brown with caramel highlights, I knew very well it wouldnt lift my color to the one on the box. First, the stuff stinks, but it's hairdye - it's supposed to. Secondly, I followed the instructions perfectly and truthfully, I should have used two bottles (my hair is mid-back length). But I didnt, and prayed I covered everything. When I rinsed my hair and dried it, I was left with the prettiest medium auburn color with natural looking lighter copper highlights. Love the color, dont love how it made my hair feel. My ends are dry, brittle, and I feel as though I have to deep condition every day. Overall, a great color, so I'll repurch - along with an insanely potent deep conditioning treatment.

I use to use this all the time, but after a while my color didnt last no longer then about 2 weeks before fadeing...I think its because my hair hair has been dyed so many times is the reason tho. I would however use it again for a guick fix ....

I love Superior Preference! No other brand actually gives you the exact results as the color on the box. I colored my naturally dark brown hair medium brown last week with Preference, and although the color came out just like the box, I didn't like it much on me so I bought Preference in dark brown and colored it again last night. I know it's not healthy to color your hair twice in a week, but my hair actually looks healthier, shinier, and the color is beautiful! I already got several comments on it this morning. I will definitely stick with Preference as all other boxed colors I used do not give you the result you are looking for at all! Preference gives you salon color.

I used this in Dark Ash Brown 4A. The smell wasnt nearly as bad as I was expecting after reading some reviews, but it did make my eyes water. I am naturally a darkish ash brown but I was born blonde, so I have been trying to go brown again after dying/highlighting it blonde for so long.The dye was almost a blueish brown which I was happy about because I wanted to minuimize reddish tones in my hair since it is mostly blonde still underneath the dye (Ive been getting it done at a salon brown since August 08 & the salon dye faded to reddish ew). UPDATE: I am in love with the color I got right after i used Superior Preference !! It is very dark and there was no red. I did it a week ago, and it has faded a little and some red is showing through, but I think thats because it was pretty reddish brown before. Im going to use it again, I hope next time it will get all the red out and I wont need to do it again! Im really hoping the color wont fade anymore because I love it, and I am a swimmer. It has dried my hair out a little, but its still feels basically the same. If you have any tips/ experience with this dye feel free to share(:

I have been using this product in 3 brasilia. I like the colour as it is a very dark espresso brown. However, I have a few greys tucked in there (less than 10) this colour does cover the greys but it doesnt last that long. I followed the instructions but the greys reappear again within a couple of weeks, I only wash my hair every second day. I am not sure that this product is long lasting and I think it fades quickly.
