    Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

    I bought this product in hopes of giving myself some white blonde highlights. I started with the process then got bold and put the product all over my hair. I am always scared that my hair will turn orange (mine already has a bit of red undertones although blonde) but as I dried it, I was please rly surprised that the color lifted at least a shade. It wasn't as dramatic as I hoped for but I was happy overall. A huge plus for this product was that it came with a pretreatment and great conditioners. My hair was softer and shinier than before.

      Used the warm golden blonde for touching up my roots because I was on vacation and needed a touch-up and didn't want to spend a fortune on a salon. The color was easy to use and it's only been on a week so I can't vouch whether it is long-lasting or not....but it did the trick....covered my ugly gray roots.

      Complete wash out!

      Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

      I bought this yesterday and applied it, i am very experienced with salon and drug store coloring. Normally i use nice and easy clairol, which i love it gives great color but i thought i would try something new. i was trying to cover highlights from previous salon work a few months ago plus a few inches of growth on my roots. this color did NOT do the job. my all over hair color is a med brown like i wanted (i was going from a light brown) but all of my highlights and regrowth are still very present. how does a permanent hair dye not cover regrowth lighter than itself? disappointed... it was a waste of money and now my poor hair will have to be redyed.

      Still have grey

      Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

      Just finished dying my hair, showering, and blow drying only to find the same grey hair. I left it in my roots for an extra 10 minutes like the box suggested and just ended up with a different color on my roots than the rest of my hair.

        I first tried the dark ash brown color and it came out super BLACK. Not happy with it at all, I tried color oops and then dyed my hair the dark brown color only to have the same result. I followed the instructions both times (and even went a little shorter on the time the last time) and yet both brown colors turned out wayyyyyy too dark.
