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!
Ok, so I am naturally a dark blonde colour, and for the past year have been bleach blonde.
I decided to go back to my natural colour to make my hair healthier and so I can grow it, So I went and looked at some hairdye kits..
I decided on 3 brands each claiming to give you shiney dark blonde hair... I picked this one, "pure dark blonde" (basically from the pretty packaging) and decided to use it the next day.
It seemed ok when I prepared the dye and put the lid on.
But first problem: I have lots of hair, and the moussey foam doesnt spread, So i ran out!! so I had to desperately mix water through my hair to spread it.
Second problem, it developed REALLY FAST! It says to leave it on for 30 mins.. I left it on for 15 and my hair was a dark brown!!
I was left with dark brown uneven color :(
The next day I had to go get a colour stripper from the salon (which was $50), and then the next day 2 toners and a treatment, another $45!!!!!!! And my hair is now a caramel blonde and damaged.
Terrible product!!! Maybe it would be ok for thin, dark hair.. otherwise DO NOT BUY!!!!
I wish I had looked at the reviews here before buying this product. My hair is really long and thick and I had never coloured it before but just felt I wanted to change it up a bit and bought this product on impulse. Well I put it in and waited the recommended 30 minutes and when I washed it out my hair felt so dry and dull. For the first time in my life I now lose hair when I comb and wash my hair. And the colour? Zip, nada, zero. The exact same as before but looks worse in my new frizzy set of hair... Don't buy this product!
This is hands down the worst hair color I have ever used, I have been coloring my hair for years and decided to try this product as I have a 1 year old son and husband that works out of town and thought maybe this "super easy to apply" mousse would save me some time. As I was applying the color I felt like there could be no possible way that I would get an even application as as soon as the mousse hits your hair it dissapears, there is no "lathering" involved as the photo would suggest. Finally, after the half hour processing time and rinse, my roots came out RED (by the way, the shade I chose was PURE BLACK) and the lighter fringe around my face turned BLONDE....how is this even possible. This is the WORST hair color ever, and the biggest waste of $10.00 and an hour of my time. I would love to email them and ask for my money back but conveniently there is no email address to be found for anyone, in the entire company. Thanks alot Loreal.
