Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

I have used this product for about 4 years now & really like the color, which is almost exact to mine. I only use it around my face where grey is more prominent & so I throw away most of the product. Would like it to come in smaller containers for people who only need very little of the product. But overall, it serves the purposes of a "touch up" instead of doing an all over color.

    I could not get in at my hair salon and I much needed a coloring. My friends recomended Root Rescue to help cover my roots and all I can say is Impressed! Root Rescue is easy to use and only took 10 minutes.

      Turned my roots red!

      By Redandbrassy

      from ,

      Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

      I have used the competition root color for years and have always been pleased. I decided to try Root Rescue to see if it worked better. I used the medium golden brown shade as directed and it turned my roots red and brassy! I had to go purchase some purple shampoo immediately to try to tone it down and will have to get a toner applied. Don't ever use this product!

            Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

            I love this product for touch ups in between getting my hair professionally colored. I have a lot of gray near the part of my hair that shows between colorings. I use this product to get an extra couple weeks out of my color to cover up those grays. I find the Loreal Root Rescue works better to cover those grays than the Clairol root touch up.

            I tried it

            By kristy22

            from Cathedral City, CA

            Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

            I bought this root rescue because I had a coupon. I was disappointed to see there was not a auburn color so I tried the light brown. I would say it worked but for almost the same price, I would probably just buy my regular hair color [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
