    Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

    I like this application/applicator better than the traditional bottle top nozzles of most other products. It isn't as messy and doesn't drip. The color says it is permanent but I end up having to use it usually once a month, not sure if that's because I have stubborn grays or the formula. Would recommend.

      Absolutely love L'Oreal Root Rescue! I use Soft Black for my gray hair and the color is great. I like the "comb" applicator which makes getting around the hair line easier and less messy. And LOVE the fact that you can use your own shampoo after rinsing the dye out.

          Loreal is my favorite home box- "just like salon" color. Root Rescue was recommended by another stylist friend, is so easy to use, does a phenomenal job covering the grays and blending with natural color and not as abrasive on your hair as other box colors. My hair is about 85% gray, so I find it lasts as long as salon color which is about 3 weeks. Leaves your hair shiny and healthy looking like you just walked out of the salon!

          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

              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!
