Good color

Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

This color used to work better. I have more gray in my hair, though, so it could be more difficult to cover. They seem to have a little less color in the kits than they used to. I do think L'Oreal does have the best ash blonde color of any brand. It doesn't damage hair as much as other brands.

Great product, great quality

Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

I have been using Excellence crème hair color for over a year. It is easy to use--does not drip when used carefully. I like the conditioner supplied in the hair color kit. My hair has remained in good condition. The color was as expected. It did fade some over time. However I've been told that this happens, and I do have very fine hair. I grayed early, and was afraid to color my fine hair which thinned on top due to a medical condition. I was a brunette with a fair complexion when I was young. I did not want to dye my hair brunette because I felt that the thinning on top of my head would be more noticeable and the my roots would be very visible quickly. My hairdresser suggested that I go blonde, which I had not considered. I use an Ash blonde in order to keep the red undertones in check -- 7B Medium Ash blonde. It compliments my fair complexion. My friends tell me that I look much younger. I think that I look younger, and I feel so much better being blonde rather than gray. I wish that I had not waited until I was 67 to color my hair. Thank you L'Oréal.

Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

This is my "go to" hair color product choice. I prefer Excellence Creme because it's thicker, easier to handle and doesn't drip all over the place.

    Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

    I have quite a bit of gray hair. While this doesn't cover the most stubborn grays, it does color in such a way as to make the gray, that shows, look natural.
    I have been using this brand for years and will continue.

        I use this every two weeks to cover my grey roots. i was able to lighten my dark hair up a little bit with this product and i think i was successful it is so reasonable to dye your hair at home with this product, i don't know why (esp those of us covering grey) don't all do this.
