      Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

      I have been using Clairol Root Touch up for years but I decided to try L'oreal Root Rescue because my old brand was not covering the grey as well as I liked. I am absolutely THRILLED with my new find. The L'oreal Root Rescue covered my grey roots and my hair feels so soft and looks really shiny! Thank you L'oreal .....I will definately be using this product again and again!!!!

      Too Dark!

      By StacyC

      from Lake Stevens, WA

      Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

      I bought the Root Rescue in a LIGHT BROWN #6. My gray areas are in front of my ears and at the top/front of my hair. My color DID NOT turn out Light Brown. My color turned Dark Brown, almost Black. Now my hair is completely messed up. The front is dark, dark brown, while the sides and back are my normal Light Brown. It looks ridiculous and now I have to buy an all over color to fix the two-toned mess. Why can't you be accurate in your colors? Why, if the color says "light brown" does it come out almost black? Coloring my hair again is going to do damage, and I'm not happy about it!
