I HAVE TO ADMIT, I THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE A BIG JOKE & WASTE OF TIME, MONEY & SO MUCH MORE... BUT I ADMIT... I WAS WRONG!!! THIS PRODUCT HAS MADE HISTORY IN MY EYES!! ITS AWESOME!! I WILL NEVER EVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HAVING TO WAIT TO GO TO THE HAIR DRESSER ANYMORE TO GET MY HAIR COLOR OR MY ROOTS DONE!! THIS IS MAGIC!! I GIVE IT AN A+++!! IT WAS SOOOOOOOOO EASY TO USE AND ITS KIND OF LIKE JUST SHAMPOOING IT INTO YOUR HAIR, AND JUST WAITING 30 MINS AND RINSE OUT AND WOW... YOU HAVE GORGEOUS, TOTALLY SHINY, AND NO GRAYS AT ALL HAIR!! I CANT WAIT TO USE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN!! I THANK WHOEVER THOUGHT OF THIS!! I JUST WISH IT WOULD HAVE COME OUT YEARS AGO!! TOTALLY AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE!! :)
L'Oreal should be ashamed of themselves for selling this crap! I think they probably rushed it a little to jump in on the *foam hair color trend* and maybe shoulda done some more testing.
I had medium golden brown hair with fold and red highlights. I also had 2 inches of gray roots. Usually I would not be coloring my hair myself.....about 6 times a year I am a hair model.....different salons in the area use me to cut my hair, color it, do highlights, etc. These services are free. This is a way for junior stylists to get some experience, and it works well for me also. I had a gig for highlights, but I needed to not have any visible roots, and didn't have time to set up a base color gig anywhere else.
Anyway, I did some research, and I though the foam thing would be easy enough for me to do myself. I bought medium blonde, since the actual color I wanted was a dark honey blonde.
To it's credit, it mixed up ok, and didn't smell bad. It went on ok, but my hair isn't very long....barely to my shoulders, and there wasn't enough product to evenly saturate my hair. I did my best though.
I let it sit for 30 minutes like it said. after that, I rinsed it out, then put on the conditioner for 5 mintes, and rinsed it out.
OMG......I could not comb my hair.....it was that ratty and nasty feeling! I put some argan oil in it and finally, carefully got the tangles out.
I carefully towelled it almost dry, then took a look.
I am not sure which was worse....the color or the texture.
The color was bad.Just wrong. A pukey medium brown, No highlights. Just flat. Except for NONE of my grays were covered. AT all! *&%#!!!!
And the texture......so icky......spongy feeling.......and so fly-away! My hair has never felt like this. My hair has always been soft and thick and healthy. I feal so ugly right now. And the highlights gig......I can't do it......the stylist was worried he might damage my hair further. I WILL be writing L'Oreal!
I used this in #41 Iced Dark Brown about four weeks ago, and I am still pleased with the results! The color is very similar to Garnier Nurtisse #415 Raspberry Truffle: a dark brown (almost black) with red/plum highlights. I don't get all the bad reviews, as I found this to be very easy to use, and the color has stayed quite well without much fade. Most of my grays are still covered as well. I would definitely get this color again!
EDIT: This faded to an inky black color that I am STILL trying to get lighter. I'm back to Garnier Nutrisse, as I've gotten compliments on how shiny my hair looks when I use it.
Just awful. I read a lot of bad reviews before I used it but decided I would give it the benefit of the doubt.
I just used the pure black version of this hair dye. My hair is already dark, it has some red-ish tint from the last time I dyed it but never the less it was almost black to begin with. I wanted to get the red-ish tint out and thought this should do the trick.
I've tried other l'oreal hair dyes, when I had much lighter hair, bleach blonde to back to black even and I've never had a problem with coverage.
It seems as if this product did absolutely NOTHING.
There is still the red tint.... theres no trace of it being pure black what so ever. Its like I never even dyed it in the first place.
It's only 10 bucks but the fact that it did nothing that it was supposed to do makes it seem expensive just because you're paying for nothing.
I don't recommend this product. I surely won't use it again.
The Mousse idea is great as it doesn't go all over the bathroom, I followed the instructions to the T, used 'radiant golden blonde' 8.3 on my already highlighted blonde hair - i mainly hoped the roots would lift a bit and blend in with the rest of my hair.
It darkened my hair to a flat gingery light brown. yuk. after a few washes it's a kind of dishwater strawberry blonde with no shine whatsoever.
I like the mousse idea, but that colour sucked
well i found myself looking at the wall of hair color at walmart last night dazed, ive tried every single brand and been from platinum to black, and everything in between, i have naturally very thing medium length dirty blonde hair, with natural highllights but over the years it has turned to more of a mousy brown, dull and lifeless. i havent colored it in 6 months since i was leaning towards a beachy blonde for the summer ,but found myself strapped for cash to get it done, and also not looking forward to the impending doom of me hating the color .. which in 10 years have yet to have a stylist get somewhat close to what i was looking for.... so i found myself bored with my hair and wanted some kind of change and since the blonde was out of the question since boxed blondes turn my hair yellow i decided i wanted a dark brown but not to chocolate and not black...and i found it looking at the mousse collection... so i got the color and went home read all the directions and found it so easy to mix and apply and it left my hair manageble i could run my fingers through it, spread evenly and washed out nicely, almost no bleeding of the color in the water like every other brand ive tried ,just what was left over, and still my hair was soft and i could get my fingers through it.. i didnt shampoo just rinsed and conditioned and the conditioner was wonderful . let it dry, easy to remove from skin and didnt run either when it was on ... my hair is soft, shiny, and feels and looks great..... i have even color , my roots blended witht the rest . a little bit darker than i thought but not much didnt wash me out and i have very pale skin with light blue eyes... more true to the color on the box then others... overall i absoulutely love this color and will recomend and use it again .... this coming from a very picky usually very unhappy customer......
I purchased the golden radiant brown to dye my medium brown hair with, expecting a great result but have been left with really dark hair (darker than I started with) a flat colour and very dry hair.
L'Oreal have been hopeless in resolving just telling me to use dandruff shampoo.
No way would I recommend this dreadful product. You have been warned!
this product sucks just as much as the shady reviews written for it. seriously, who joins MUA, writes a perfectly articulate review & then flounces? DERP.
save your time & your money with this crap.
Heads up Girls! I had my hair colored by "professional beauty salon experts" who have studied under famous hair color stylists. It cost me hundreds of dollars,and, has turned out badly these last two times. My hair was way too dark, and way too damaged. For months I looked liked this. Finally, when enough time had gone by for me to color again, I decided to try the new mousse
color by L'oreal. To tell you the truth, ladies, I had low expectations. But, after doing a little research on the internet, decided to try it anyway, and, crossing my fingers, put it on.
OMG, I thought I was f----d again when my hair was hard to comb out, and felt kind of coarse.
Lo and behold, when it was dry, I combed it out again, and it WAS GORGEOUS! I couldn't believe it! All grays gone. Bouncy, shiny hair, and the color still allowing all my highlights showing through. I look beautiful now, with rich looking, dark, shiny hair. No S--t!
Best 10.00 bucks I EVER SPENT!
Just dyed my hair and it came out really nice. I saw a lot of people writing comments about it coming out too dark so I only left mine on for 25 minutes. You also have to read the directions very carefully and always go a shade lighter than you want. and be sure to check the box to make sure it will match your color. I don't think this product is made for a major hair color change. I used pure light brown. It's pretty close though and your hairs always darker when you first dye it. I am pleased with the product and would recommend to a friend
