      Shocked

      By Stayck

      from PA

      Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

      Naturally, I have medium brown hair with a few Greys popping up when I change my part. I purchased Dark Ash Brown 4A to cover my grey and to add a bit of drama. The color looked like a striking cool dark brown on the box - yet somehow I ended up with BLACK hair!!!! Not super dark brown - it's BLACK! I asked my husband if it looked bad and his response was "I'm not going to answer that". Thanks L'Oréal. Maybe a warning should be included that "Ash" may appear 1/2 to a full shade darker (as a stylist I consulted advised!). * also, the product smelled so bad I ended up with a terrible headache!

          Easy to use and no drips!

          By NWNative

          from , washington

          Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

          I've been using this for three years and love it. No drips all over, color is true and it's easy to apply and wash out. No residue left on the scalp either. I also love the new tube of protection for hair ends to keep them from becoming darker. This color looks darker on my hair than the box, so be sure and test strip. My hair is naturally dark brown at this point with about 50% white. It still covers evenly. Washing 2-3 times a week with L'Oreal product keeps the fade away. I color every 5-6 weeks, roots 20 min, all over 10. My white is stubborn. I'm 55 and my hair is fine and I am Northern European white. Hope this helps someone.
