    Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

    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.

        It has a better consistency than Perferance. It does coverage grey very well and does not wash out. Only the roots begin to show.

        I have natural Auburn hair and started to gray. I have paid 150 dollars every month at my salon. The reddish blonde worked perfect! My husband loved it. Thank you so much.

          Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Crème:

          I was using Preference but 2 colorings ago the store was out of my color so I bought Excellence instead. I have to say that I think I like it better. The color was the same but the formula was thicker and didn't drip down my face. It doesn't stain my skin either and though I always put vaseline around my hair line, Preference always manages to stain my skin anyway. I love the conditioner as well and since my hair grows pretty fast and I'm doing root touch up every 4 weeks, it last until the next coloring. I have thick, dry hair so I only wash it once, maybe twice a week. I haven't bought hair conditioner in years.
