      I used to go to he salon every month -- I don't have the time nor the money. My results for 20 years have always been complimented, by pros as well.
      Mixing 2 colors and touching up grays gives the natural, highlighted effect.

      Good haircolor for the price. Rich, shiny, feels gentle on your hair. Lasts well. Does not cover grays for long, however (but few haircolors do). Outstanding conditioner included with the haircolor, to use after coloring. the blonder shades have a strong smell upon application (the ammonia).

          I am a natural blonde but as u grow older my hair gets a little darker. Ive been using the extra light ash blonde for years. Love the tones! No yellow! I usually leave on for longer than directed. And use shimmer lights to maintain between colorings.i usually color every 4-6 weeks

                Instructions are wrong

                By Kwilliams9

                from Atlanta, GA

                Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

                "Do I have time to color my hair tonight?" I thought as I scanned the directions. Sure. So I twisted off the cap of the developer bottle, grabbed tube 3, as the instructions said, and squeezed. Then I turn over the remaining tube, expecting to see step 4, conditioner, when I realize that step 3, in my hand (well, now in my bottle of developing cream) is the conditioner and STEP 2 is the color cream. I guess we'll see what happens when you mix developer, color, and conditioner all at once! You've got your bottles (or instructions) misnumbered, L'Oréal

                      A:

                      Hi Madonna! Thanks for asking about our Excellence Creme. We recommend staying within two levels of your natural hair color. So if you have dark brown hair the lightest you could go without seeing orange would be a Light Brown #6.
