          Great product to buy time before you go to the professionals. I alway get very gray by the temples. Goes on in a flash and I can get by for another week or so tops.

            I've been using this product for several years. It's very fast and simple to use. The color blends well with my existing hair color. I always use it two or three times before I have to do a whole head hair dye. It works well at covering gray hair.

              Clumsy and Wasteful Applicator

              By Moff

              from Portland, OR, United States

              Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

              I love Loreal products in general, but sorry, this one needs some improvement. The rather rigid applicator bottle is hard to squeeze so the product doesn't flow out evenly but in spurts and spits. That made application difficult for me, plus it's impossible to get all of the product out of the bottle so some is wasted. But worse, despite leaving it on my hair for at least 15 minutes, it didn't cover my gray anywhere near as well as its competitor, Clairol Root Touch-up, which I have been using for about 2 years. (Maybe it isn't the formula at fault for this so much as it is the clumsy applicator bottle, I can't be sure. A big difference in the two brands is that Loreal says shampoo after, Clairol says no need to shampoo, simply rinse the product out. Perhaps shampooing right away removes too much product so there isn't as good coverage??) I do love the conditioning effect of Loreal Root Rescue, but then that's not my primary goal when coloring gray, so on that note, I can't recommend this product. I will go back to my tried and true, easy to mix, easy to apply, Clairol Root Touch-up, which uses an open tray and brush rather than a hard-to-squeeze stiff bottle. (Loreal might be a worthy contender if it weren't for that stiff applicator.)

                I tried this so I could go more than 3 weeks btwn salon coloring and save some $$! Big disappointment, did not color my grey roots and I left it on to process for 20 minutes!
