    I've been using this product for years. Perfect to touch up your roots between professional dye appointments. It's sooo easy to use and the color matches perfectly. Very happy with this little helper ;))

    Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

    This is the 1st time using this on my roots (grey). I love the shade, very natural & matches my fine light highlights. It took two boxes as my hair is thick & long. Liked applicator too. Very gentle and not smelly. I'm a convert for good.

      Ive been using Loreal Root Rescue #9 Light Blonde for over 7 years now!! I have blonde ashy hair to begin with, but when I use this, It gets nice and bright and no ashy tones!! I have NO complaints about this product. If Loreal ever gets rid of it, Im in trouble...

      Watch my Youtube tutorial on how I apply it, and the finished look!

        Very easy to use and quick. A good product for your in between visits to your stylist.
        The only issue I had was the color was a little darker than shown on box. Next time, I will go with the lighter blond.
