The best hair color ever - literally the only one that reproduced my original blonde tone to a T! Please bring it back! I will buy it for the rest of my life!

i used the light blonde shade on my ashy blonde hair..my hair turned out a VERY VERY light blonde! i thought it was supposed to lift hair only 1 or 2 shades..didnt look bad and my hair wa super-shiny soft, but just too light, may rebuy in perhaps a slightly darker shade!

I pray to the haircolor gods that somehow, some day, this discontinued line will be re-introduced. After it was gone, I travelled to 3 different Big Lots stores in my area and purchased 27 boxes of it. (Imagine me removing three shelves worth of other colors to find mine.) I used Venus 6c (copper light brown). It was perfect, perfect, perfect. My hair never felt dried out, the color was natural, it held up well, and I would have used this stuff for at least a decade if it was still out there. It's very difficult -- okay, impossible -- to find a drugstore hair color that mimics true red hair. Redheads have orange/copper/gold tones to their hair. They do NOT have pink, red, purple, violet, or burgundy. Yet the latter is the base color to nearly every shade of "red" or "auburn" I've tried. The only exception would be L'oreal Feria Copper Shimmer, but it was a bit too bright (and light), and it tended to dry my curly porous hair even more. I've recently started to mix shades of Revlon Color Silk to try to replicate the look that L'oreal Open gave me. Close, but no cigar.

I really wish they had not discontinued Open. I'm already a blonde and just looking for a dye to go 2 shades lighter. This was it !! It really dint damage my hair much and gave me glowing, soft, natural looking hair. I dye my hair only eavery 3 months and in between my roots did not stand out because the color was not opaque and it gently fades.

I WOULD Buy this if I could. I had the most compliments on my hair when I used "OPEN"! A shame that it is being discontinued. I great product....but what a strange name! The marketing guru that OK'd that had one Cosmopolitan too many!!

I REALLY like this, i remember it was my first (and only) dye that i've ever used lol! The color goes on very nicely and evenly, does not sting my scalp like most dyes (i'm sensitive), and does not dye your skin either! But what i love most about this is the CONDITIONER that comes with it! My god! After i used it, my hair became like a baby's hair; SOOO soft and was SHINY like crazy! Almost prismatic lol! Then my cousin kept touching and complementing my shiny hair, then this stranger came up to praise them, and finally my hairstylist's helper who was straightening my hair told me my hair is THE SILKIEST she's ever seen and touched! Ahh...made my days...lol, i've tried several other l'oreal's deep conditionners but none can compare to this one, so now i buy the Open hairdye just for the conditionner inside lol! So anyone know where to buy the conditionner separately or what it's called (cuz it doesn't have an official name)??!?! Please inform me! :)

I hate to post this as a review but...try Big Lots. I've seen it there and it's cheap to boot.

sad news! After spending a week looking for Open at my local pharmacies (in NYC) I wrote to L'Oreal who informed me that the "product is being discontinued". Oh no....

I have been coloring my hair at home for almost 10 years and I have to say, this is my favorite of all the brands I've tried. I've been using Open for about a year... started with Azure but ending up with Osiris to lighten up my natural color. Roots don't show as much, color fades slowly... I've recommended to several people who commented on how much they liked the color and have converted a few salon color addicts. I'm totally bummed out about it being discontinued - I've searched every drugstore, Walmart and Target and cannot find even a trace of this great product. I've settled on buying tubes of the conditioner on Ebay so I can ween myself off the shine slowly, but I suppose I'll have to find a new brand. Any loyal Open users have any suggestions? Might have to think about switching to semi-perm, though tried ColorSpa and hated it.

I have thick straight hair.
I tried it cuz it was on sale at drugstore.
I was pretty disappointed that it made my hair dull and took all shine away...

I got Open for $2.50 on clearance I hope that means new packaging, I will be so mad if it is being discontinued.I have dyed blonde hair that I wanted to turn back to my original color. I used Harmony 7n. There was also some ginger-ish hints in my blonde left from the red before the blonde and Open covered all of them, left my hair soft and silky, and didn't leave a bad dye smell. The mixture was a nice consitency, once it's on your hair it stays there. Also they provide you with almost 2 oz of conditioner, like a 6 inch tube, great for those of us with longer hair. Those eensy packets just don't do it for past shoulder hair. Also, people who hated this loved Garnier Nutrisse, which didn't work on me at all so there you are. It is $10 most places and at that price I might think twice about buying it again. If I could get it for 7 I'd use it forever.

After two years of use this is my absolute favorite home-coloring kit available. Two months ago, after not having dyed my own hair in quite some time, I decided I wanted to go for a new look with copper hair color. I checked the different reviews on MUA and settled on Garnier Nutrisse hair color. I dyed it and everything went fine until the next week when the color faded dramatically. Luckily the faded color looked alright on me, but it wasn't near the quality of results I was hoping for. My roots started showing again and I decided to go back to my faithful Open hair color for a golden brown natural look.
I bought Oxygen (6g) which I hadn't used in about a year. This is the perfect color for a naturally medium golden brunette like myself. I was surprised by the red tones that came out of this. But my hair isn't dried out and the color is magnificent. I like the shine and light-catching elements too! This is a great brand for natural tones. I'm so upset at the rumors that it might be in the process of being discontinued!

Is this a non-permanent dye? Every time I shampoo I get the colour washing off my hair. It says permanent on the box so there must be something I misread here. Anyway the red colour didn't show up on my hair at all. What a waste.

I love Open! I've used Solstice, Orion and Stellar so far. This haircolor has good staying power as long as you don't pick a color that's ten tones different than yours (I suspect most of the bad reviews here might be from people who chose this haircolor like they would an opaque permanent dye). I woudln't try to go much lighter than your curent haircolor with this product but I did go darker and add lots of red with success. Here's what i like most about it: it feels like you're not even coloring. No tingling, no dry scalp, great conditioner and a color that stays. Even semi-permanent dyes used to make my scalp dry for weeks but not this... and not only does it last; it actually blends in with your natural color, like it's smart or something :)

This is, hands down, flat out, the worst haircolor I have ever used. The box claims it is a no drip gel, which is the biggest piece of false advertising I've ever heard. I spent the entire developing time wiping up drips, off my face, the sink, the floor... you name it, it was brown by thirty minutes time. It also developed quite dark, and I'm stuck for the time being with nearly black hair. Total rant from me.

I love the Open haircolor line. I've tried alot of the colors in the auburn shades over the past couple of years. Open haircolor leaves my hair really soft and shiny. I just tried the Zenith haircolor last night and my hair is now a beautiful auburn brown with coppery highlights. Love this color and don't plan to change!

So far this has been the best at-home hair colouring product I've ever used. It's easy to apply and I appreciate the conditioner that comes with it (nice scent). I use the colour "Magic Spell", which gives my deep brown straight Asian hair a glossy wine tint. I like how it's easier to rinse clean than most, and it leaves my hair soft afterwards. There will be better products in the future I'm sure, but for now this is great.

I found it really strange to believe the reviews for this were mainly negative! I love this product, i've used it twice so far, once in a nice deep brownish red (can't remember its exact name) and more recently, a dark brown, i think it's called terrestrial. The colours were really vibrant and beautiful, and i actually found the product left my hair moisturised and soft. It smelt fruity and not too overpowering and the little conditioner that came in the box was fantastic, it had such a strong, fresh scent. This is the only 'at home' hair colourant i'll use from now on.
