Wow -- people either really love this stuff or really hate it!

If you want to cover gray, this is an excellent option. My gray is super hard to color (though I suppose that's true for everyone). But within the 30 minutes, this did a remarkable job. I've left other dyes on my hair for far longer and ended up with much less gray coverage than this provided.

The mousse format does take a little getting used to. I have super short hair, so it's easy to get all my hair saturated anyway. But I think this would be a good option if you have longer hair. Seems to saturate much more quickly than regular liquid formulas. (Though it does get a bit drippy as it's processing. Definitely do the vaseline thing around the hair line.)

I will say that you need to be careful about the color. I picked 41, Icy Dark Brown. I have naturally dark brown hair and it always wants to pull red when I color it. I figured with "icy" in the color name, this would help tone down the red. Not at all -- in fact, as the color was processing on my head, I could see it turning a rusty brown. It's not any worse than other colors I've used, but be prepared that you might not get cool tones when choosing this color.

Would probably buy again, but try a different color.

A few days ago I got my hair died Golden medium brown #53 from L'Oreal sublime mousse and it turned out wrong! The color was not even close to what the box says and my hair was the same color as before! When i died my hair, there were no foams like it says on the box either. I really wish I have have gotten a different brand that would have work! It was kind of a waste of my money! I called the company and they told me that it was really hard to receive or get a golden brown color and in my head and i was like if it's hard than why did u make it if it was hard to be done!??? :( Sorry if that same thing happened to u to!

I am a lover of hair dye. I've dyed and bleached my hair from blond to bright Crayola red. As I'm getting older, my now biggest battle is the ever dreaded gray hair.
I bought this hair colour out of curiosity of the mousse hair dye trend and because it was on sale. I bought the Iridescent Brown colour.
On the positive side it smells a million times better than normal hairdye-doesn't burn your eyes, nose or scalp. The conditioner that comes with it also smells great.
On the negative end, I didn't love the mousse aspect. For one, it's adamant in the instructions not to shake the bottle once you're mixing it, but to instead roll it. Because I've been dying my hair for the best part of 17 years I never read the instructions and thankfully I did this time. When you're applying it, the mousse tends to squish through your fingers and end up on the back of your hand, not a big deal but kind of annoying. On the positive end of mousse, it does tend to apply a bit faster.
The colour after rinsing was significantly darker than the box, which seems to be a trend in most people's posts. Luckily, I like my hair dark, so I ended up really liking the colour but if I were naturally lighter haired, I probably would have found the colour a bit too dark.

I HATE dying my hair it's a tedious and messy task and I would rather go to the salon but I'm not willing to pay so much for something I can do myself.
So I'm accident prone and very messy but this hair colour is AMAZING.
It's mousse formula makes it easy to apply, you pump the foam onto your hand (with gloves on) and massage it in. It rinses out so easily, you don't have to lather it like shampoo like other hair dyes. The water runs clear in seconds and the conditioner smells light and fruity.
Prior to application I apply vaseline to my hairline and ears to prevent staining.
My go-to product for hair colour. My hair's a nice glossy black, let's see how long the colour lasts though...

Super easy to apply. However, the color is much much darker than the advertised shade . I bought the #53 Golden Medium Brown and my hair is black now. Also, it does not cover grays !!!! On the bright side, it did not damage my hair. I would NOT buy this again.

WORST dye EVER! Do NOT Buy! I have been dying my hair for 10 yrs now and this is the worst for many reasons. I thought I would give the new mousse a try and regret it for the following reasons:

1) My hair feels GROSS. Most of the time when you dye your hair it feels softer. I don't know if the conditioner sucks or its the mousse, but my hair feels like straw.
2) I dyed my hair darker than my natural color and the dye did not foam around the strands of my hair like the box claimed. My roots are lighter while the rest of my hair is significantly darker.
3) It was more difficult than regular dye to be precise around the edges of my hairline.

I'm so sad now because my hair feels unhealthy and gross.

OK, I have been a do-it at home hair dye junkie since I was in the 8th grade. Started with wash-outs & moved my way up to permanents (even though I don't have any grey) just to try new things so I have used about every at-home hair color under the sun.

I naturally have very dark brown hair (Dark Ash Brown) & what always happens, even with permanents, is that they wash out eventually, not totally, but enough, & I am left with a medium brown hair with reddish (not brassy) highlights. The color actually comes out looking OK, so that isn't the problem, but I want my DARK hair color & every permanent I have ever used washes out to a lighter brown no matter how I maintain it after dyeing.

Well, I thought I would give this mousse in Darkest Natural Brown a try & I LOVE it!!!!

I will never use regular hair color again. The mousse is totally the way to go. It was easily to apply & covered all sreas, even the dreaded crown of the head that I always miss. I put it on in 5 minutes & had no dripping at all & the color is BEAUTIFUL!

It looked more black than brown when I started but a few washings & now it is that gorgeous Dark Ash Brown that I have been looking for. I did it recently so I am hoping that this won't disappoint & wash out too but it is hands-down the best at home hair color I have ever used.

This is a really good hair dye! I was so surprised when i saw all these bad reviews, because to me this dye didn't have any downsides at all! I purchased the color 70 and it turned out to be exactly the same color as the box. The conditioner is very good too! Will definitely use this dye again!
