Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

As I said above, this product does it's job! Only cons are that it smells terrible until you wash your hair a couple of times after apply. Also, it would be nice if it came in smaller pkgs also. I use very little of it because I only use it mainly around my face & throw most of it away since it can't be kept. Please consider making this in half sizes also!

Didn't do well for me

By Candace

from NV

Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

I had a few issues with this product. It's very strong in odor and had a burning sensation comparable to when I used to bleach my hair. There was only enough to do the roots of the front half of my head. The comb is very uncomfortable (I typically use a tint brush). The color did not stay in my hair well and is already starting to fade severely after 1 wash. The gloves were a B word to get apart and actually use. I figured I'd give it a try but didn't work out for me.

      Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

      Root Rescue is a perfect solution to use for covering gray roots in-between professional colorings. I am a graying 62 yr old who has her hair professionally colored (dark brown) approximately every 8-9 weeks. When roots begin to show, I use a wand or spray, but when roots reach 1/4-1/2", I switch to Root Rescue. Gray roots can be easily, effectively and permanently covered in a 10 minute process! It fully covers gray BETTER than any other product I have tried, extending the time span between professional coloring appointments. Very gentle on hair.
