      GREAT APPLICATOR

      By SnakeLady

      Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

      When I was searching for a root color in the store, and reading the boxes, than I found L'Oreal Root Rescue. My color was available (black) and what finally interested me the MOST was the neat looking applicator!! Great choice!! It made the application so much faster. WOW And the color matched my original color perfect. Really love it.

        • Touch Ups

        Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

        Roots! ROOTS!! My hair went gray like a skunk -- not the bangs but a little ways back and a wide stripe, from that point to mid-head in back. All hair likes to grow out and any previous hair color likes to fade right there at the part so it needs to be touched up. In a long tube with a comb attachment built in, this product makes mixing and applying easy. It's my favorite product for not doing the full head, ideal for the skunk-stripe area touch-ups alone. It is VERY popular and can be hard to find. When I do find it, I buy two.

        This may work on grey but ...

        By DisappointedCaliGirl

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

        This may work on grey but I used it to lighten my dark root regrowth. It did not work at all. In fact, my roots look darker and more prominent than they did before I used Root Rescue! Also, I could do my part in 1-inch increments but there was not enough product to apply to the roots at the crown and back of my head. I recommend that you just buy a full box of the product and use that if you need to lighten dark roots. I will not be using this again.
