I love colorspa. I have been using plum oasis #15 for a little over 5 years now. I naturally have dark blond hair but it looked strange with my naturally black eyebrows. Plum oasis goes perfect with my coloring. It gives the illusion of black hair indoors and dark burgany when im outdoors. Its absoluty beautiful. Colorspa is fairly easy to work with, except my hair is getting longer so i have to use 2 bottles everytime I color. The smell Is not too chemically, and the after color conditioner makes my hair SO soft and shiny, I dont think I will ever change. This stuff is perfect for me.

I used the chestnut shade (med red brown) to warm up my roots and cover a few grays I've developed since my last permanent coloring. The color did a fine job on my brown hairs, but didn't seem to stick to the gray ones much at all. I won't repurchase and the main reason is that this stuff makes a HUGE MESS! It is the drippiest hair dye I have ever used. It seriously has the consistency of water. I had no control with the bottle because as soon as I tipped it over, dye came pouring out. Also, most of my bathroom has now hints of chestnut everywhere. It will take me forever to clean it all up.

after having blonde foils for six months, i was tired of the old regrowth and brassiness and decided to get this on a whim. (thought that i could grow out the blonde while colouring over with brown to mask roots). the only 'brown' colour to choose from was light mocha brown but it looked good on the packet (in the sample it looked richer and darker so i got it). be aware that in most shops they stock mainly the reds.
anyway its pretty easy to apply, doesnt take a brain surgeon. theres ample product even for the thickest hair, and doesnt smell too bad. it worked out great, even on pre-processed hair, however my colour isnt so much of a light bornw as a deep, dark brown. i like this, its close to my natural shade and very rich. after using the conditioner my hair is really shiny and healthy looking as opposed to the dry/brittle mess it was before. highly reccomend this, but watch out cos the colours always come out way darker than expected.

If you think "Expresso" is too dark try "Cocoa." I usually use "Expresso." I told a friend it seemed like it was too dark for me even though I do have dark brown hair. But with my pale skin it looked too black. She told me to try "Cocoa." I thought it wouldn't be dark enough. But it is perfect with my coloring.

I use this color in "expresso" in between my professional coloring. Does a nice job coloring my 20% grays, leaves my hair soft, although the reformulated conditioner that comes with is a tad greasy, I prefer my own. Leaves my hair a shiny dark brown, last about 20 washings. I leave color on roots 20 minutes, not ten. Will continue to purchase unless something better comes along

After bleaching my goldish blonde hair to white (yes, white!), my roots were aweful. So, I decided why not do something radical? So I got this product in Redwood, and it turned out to the exact color on the box and my hair actually felt like hair again and not like straw.

I'm Asian, therefore, I have natural dark black hair. I tried the ColorSpa Redwood dye on my hair... And... I was left with very dark black-ish brown color. (I left it on for 30 minutes) Very dull. Very flat and boring color... On top of that, my hair felt like a scarecrow's body. Very dry. Then I use Garnier Lumia (Plum) to make my hair a heathier look. (I got pretty decent result from Lumia. At least, my hair reflects light now)

I used this in Espresso (Dark Brown). My hair came out darker than before I dyed it, but I kinda figured that because most "dark brown" hair dyes always seem to come out very black. My hair still came out feeling dry and straw like after I rinsed out the dye. I thought that this was suppose to be more gentle than the permanent dyes but my hair felt the same as when I used a permanent formula. The smell of the dye was nice, it didn't sting my eyes or anything, actually I didn't notice it at all while I was doing my hair. I left the conditioner in my hair for 20 mins instead of the instructed 3 mins, I think that helped because now my hair feels very soft and healthy. There is also quite a bit of shine to my hair now, and it isn't as dull looking as before, so I'm quite pleased with my dye job. The only reason I didn't give it a full rating is because I found that the amount of dye they give you isn't quite enough. Usually with other hair dyes I'm always left with some product after I apply it to my below the shoulder length hair, but with ColorSpa, if my hair was any longer I wouldn't have had enough to cover all of my hair. I will purchase this product again.

I used L'Oreal casting last night in espresso to cover my growing out highlights. I love the dark color and love that it lets my highlights show through just enough to add some dimension. My hair feels a little bit dry, but I'm sure it's nothing that can

I'd heard such raves for this product, and had such high hopes...*sigh*. I'm afraid that I had really disappointing results. I gave this line two tries: "Teak" was the first attempt, "Cocoa" the second. Both times I was left with dry, fuzzy, dull-looking hair and very one-dimensional, flat, almost purple-brown color. I'd been loving Natural Instincts' "Pecan" and should have left well enough alone. Now I'm left with super-fried, lackluster hair. I'm gonna nurse it back to health and follow my Natural Instincts next time...

I'm trying to grow out my colored hair and used this to hide the roots. It looks pretty good now, but mostly it made my hair SO SOFT and shiny, I don't even need conditioner now. I thought it smelled nice, not like chemicals at all, kind of like fruit.

I purchased this because I wanted to go back to my natural light brown hair-color after highlighting it for years. I didn't want a big change, just something to even out the color as it was growing out. This product worked great for that purpose. The color turned out pretty much as it appeared on the box, it didn't dry out my hair, and my husband even commented that my hair looked shinier than before. I will definitely purchase again.

nice product. can sometimes come out too red or too dark, but since the color fades gradually, and the initial intense color goes away very quickly, it's all good.

I purchased L'OREAL COLORSPA MOISTURE ACTIF in number 31 Auburn Dream (Light Auburn). There's nothing LIGHT about it. My hair WAS a beautiful light blondish/brown. When I rinsed this !@#$ out my hair, my hair looked like !@#$! I'm so ticked at LOREAL for putting out a product that says one thing and does quite another. I wanted a subtle hint of natural auburn to enhance my hair's shine and depth without being to dramatically different, what I got was gothic looking DARK auburn hair with a HIDEOUS red tint. If you see this product in the store and are tempted, keep in mind the actual color is MUCH darker than the pictures on the box (the main pic and the "Result Guide" pics). Another lie told by LOREAL is that this product will rinse out in 28 shampoo's. This color won't budge. I notice from many other reviews most people turn to REVLON or Clairol to fix LOREAL's screw ups.
-EDiT- 7/11/03 The color has faded now. But I still wouldnt use it again, Loreal needs to work on some NATURAL looking colors instead of freak@Ss colors.

I used the Redwood (Auburn) shade of Castings on my dark brown hair, thinking it would brighten my hair up a bit and not be damaging like permanent colors. Well, my hair turned out dry as straw and the color was way darker than it showed on the box. You couldn't even tell I colored my hair. The color results were also uneven. There was a pretty reddish cast only on the back of my hair. The product was very drippy but did clean up easily. I have since had much better results with permanent colors such as Herbal Essences without as much damage as Castings did to my hair.

I used this as a highlighter, wanted a streaky look. My hair is dark brown and I chose shade #32 Light Ash Brown. I applied it with Igia color brush. It did not come out streaky but that's because of the color brush. Had I used a mascara wand or my fingers, it would have streaked.
The color is a lovely light brown so it looks like i have been in the sun and lightened it. The hair underneath is still darker but they blend well so it looks very natural.
My thick hair turned out very shiny too which was nice and there's no bad smell. I'd really reccomend this brand if you do at home color.
The only downside is that it is a typical Casting bottle where you have to screw in the bottom and click. The point is too pointy but since I don't plan on using it for all over color, that didn't really matter.
