              Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

              I like the fact that the product is pre-mixed and comes with a great sturdy comb applicator. Coverage lasts a good amount of time. I took off 1 star because not all stores carry the product and I can no longer find Light Golden Brown.

              It works great, but the gloves were not usable!

              Gloves were not openable on 2 occasions. New gloves may be needed, if other reviewers have also had the same problem? Other that that the product does exactly as promised. I love it. Please add better gloves. I couldn't open them.

              Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

              I regularly color my fairly dark ash blonde hair to cover grays. Recently I custom mixed a medium and dark ash blonde for myself, using 1/2 of each color with level 20 developer and liked it best. However my stubborn grays always release color first, leaving gray at my hairline or part. I was please with the ease and speed of using Root Rescue in Dark Blonde to cover those areas. It is important to note that Dark Blonde is seriously dark when first applied and my color is almost a light brown. If you are unsure, I would try the medium blonde first to avoid a slight shock. I find that all hair dyes in my range begin very dark and lighten after a few shampoos. The speed and convenience were a plus for me in middle age.

              How safe is it?

              Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

              The product works well but a lot of it ends up on my scalp and gets absorbed by my body. I would like to know how toxic is it really? All these chemicals might be very bad for me. Anyone able to answe that question for me?
