The mousse application was really easy, I even did it myself. It covered all of my hair evenly and it only took 30 minutes to dye my hair just like the instructions said (I have very dark brown hair). The only thing I didn't like about this product was the fact that it faded a fair bit the second time I washed it. I really liked the first colour it dyed my hair and then after I washed it for the second time it was noticeably lighter, but other than that it works great.
A disaster. I used Light Brown and it came out very dark brown even though I only left it on for 15 minutes. To add insult to injury it completely ruined the condition of my hair. Avoid at all costs.
I'll start out by saying that I have VERY damaged hair. It has been bleached to oblivion and, in defeat, I choose a nice light brown (pure light brown) to put in as a last resort to let my natural hair grow out. If I had read these reviews before putting the mousse in my hair, I most certainly wouldn't have braved it. However, I did not. Thankfully, my hair is in no worse condition than it was before colouring. Phew!
The colour developed very, very quickly. I can't imagine what colour it would have ended up had I left it for the suggested 30 minutes. As is, I put the colour on, foamed it up like a shampoo (very easy and neat), and washed it out almost immediately. The colour result is an even, light brown that is perhaps a little warmer than I would have liked, but shows some subtle highlights and is very nice and glossy (which is a mean feat with my damaged hair). If I ever planned on dying my hair again, I would use this. Just be sure to watch the colour closely as it develops.This one is super hasty on the darkening front.
I'll give this 2 points: 1 for the ease of application (it really is super easy and mess-free) and 1 for the color (the length of my hair was very shiny and healthy looking and the color was a soft dark brown--not too black, like with some dyes). But--and this is a big but--it didn't cover my grays!!! And since this is the *only* reason I color my hair, I won't be repurchasing.
I saw the Loreal Sublime Mousse on a commercial and was so excited to try it knowing that I was due for an all-over color! I then went to Target to pick it up and went home eager to try this product. I had read reviews and was a little skeptical but still gave it a shot. The application was super easy and I loved the no-drip foamy consistency. It was not messy whatsoever, and it came right out in the shower. However, after my hair dried, I realized it did not dye my hair at all. It was the same color as it had been before I dyed it. I read the instructions and did everything right! This would have been a great product but it left my hair colorless... would not buy again!
I just tried this for the first time in the color Pure Dark Blonde. The mousse was easy to work with and had way fewer drips and escapes than traditional liquids - so that was great. The other thing I noticed was that my hair felt much softer after rinsing than it ever did with liquids - you know that straw feeling that makes you cringe until you can put the conditioner on it? The color was very pretty and beleivable. I have only washed it once so I don't know how long it will last before it fades. I have thin, fine hair with a lot of gray at the temples. I think I found my new hair color, Ladies.
OMG ... Horror story -__- my girl wanted me to dye her hair with this and i said HELLLL NOOO because ive heard nothing but bad things about this dye, my friend is cheap in the hair department so after 30min trying to talk her out of it i was .like oh well its ur hair its on you if something happens, after application 20min into the dyeing she started getting a hot burning sensation ... -_____- she keeps it in 45 WHOLE MINUTES .... (im dieing watching this happen because i care so much about my hair) she started crying in the shower while rinsing the product and i saw HANDFULS of hair breakage .. i almost cried too but people make there own choices in life so thats on them. also the color was ice brown HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA what bullshit it came out VERYYYY DRY FADED BLACK color ... please stay away from this unless you like that chemical burn over prosssessed look , RIP healthy hair
Okay I did this last night. They say to use it on unwashed hair, my hair had not been washed for 2.5 days so it had lots of oils to protect my hair on there. This dye did not make my hair dry or damaged at all like a lot of you are saying which makes me think maybe your hair doesn't have enough natural oils on it when you did the process. It actually made my hair feel softer and in better condition!
My hair is about 3-4 inches past my collarbone and one box of this stuff was barely enough. I started mixing a little water with what was left in the dispenser to try and saturate my entire head. For some reason when I squirt it out of the bottle onto my gloved hand it would be nice and foamy then I would apply it to my hair and it would NEVER give me that awesome shampoo foam effect, it just immediately would dry up into my hair making it nearly impossible to saturate everything. I have watched videos on YouTube of girls who used this and they would get theirs to foam up identical to the way shampoo does and I am really curious why they did not happen for me when I followed the directions to a T.
I purchased box #41 "Iced Dark Brown" and my hair was already a dark color but it needed a refresher. This came out SUPER DARK, BLACK almost. I would say this is more "Dark Brownish-Black" so if you are hesitating between shades, choose the lighter one, unless you want an extremely dark outcome. Which I did, so I am pleased with that fact.
Since I wasn't able to fully saturate the hair since the shampoo-foam effect didn't happen for me I still have some spots in the back that are not as vibrant as the front part. The product wasn't messy, doesn't smell bad either. It took me about 10 minutes to apply the entire mixture to my head. I let it sit on for 50 minutes just because I wanted it to really take effect. The box recommends 30 minutes though.
So I am one of those people that in the shower I only loose like 5 strands of hair... well, I was FREAKING out in the shower last night. I had SO MUCH HAIR FALLING OUT I was about to start crying. I hurried up and washed my hair and used my own conditioner, the conditioner in the box is cheap crap just toss it out or you're gonna be complaining like the rest of the girls on here do about it damaging your hair. I hurried out of the shower and towel dried my hair praying that no more hair fell out. I used a wide tooth comb to comb my hair out and a little bit more was falling out. Finally once I started drying it the hair stopped coming out and I was inspecting my head in the mirror making sure I didn't look bald anywhere, lol. I have always used store dyes and NEVER had a reaction like that. Luckily, my hair still looks full and no bald patches but that was enough to make me decide I will never use this product again.
Nothing will ever replace the good old brush, bowl and hair dye mixture that we're used to. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is...
When I saw this stuff, the little girl in me went, 'Mousse hair dye!Cool!' .. so I fed my 'Id' and bought it.The color developed slightly darker than I'd liked. I used pure dark blonde- the base color before i streak- and went more of an unflattering matte-ish brown, despite following directions. My hair is much drier than before the color, and will need hot oil to fade and soften. Problem is, I can tell that my great grey patch at my temple will show through quickly again- it covered my grey very thinly! It was easy to use, cheap, and less messy than most, but the negatives out way the positives!
DId not cover greys well. 1 week in they are showing through.
