    Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

    Roots! ROOTS!! My hair went gray like a skunk -- not the bangs but a little ways back and a wide stripe, from that point to mid-head in back. All hair likes to grow out and any previous hair color likes to fade right there at the part so it needs to be touched up. In a long tube with a comb attachment built in, this product makes mixing and applying easy. It's my favorite product for not doing the full head, ideal for the skunk-stripe area touch-ups alone. It is VERY popular and can be hard to find. When I do find it, I buy two.

    Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

    This may work on grey but I used it to lighten my dark root regrowth. It did not work at all. In fact, my roots look darker and more prominent than they did before I used Root Rescue! Also, I could do my part in 1-inch increments but there was not enough product to apply to the roots at the crown and back of my head. I recommend that you just buy a full box of the product and use that if you need to lighten dark roots. I will not be using this again.

            This is NOT light brown! My hair was light brown and I used this to cover some gray roots and now my hair is DARK brown! Almost black! I am so disappointed and feel like a totally different person! I feel like EVERYONE can tell I colored my hair! I may need to get some highlighting color tonight. I can't stand looking like this!!

                Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

                Great for touching up gray. Super easy application. I am sensitive to a lot of dyes, including professional lines, but this didn't bother me at all. Color lasts in excess of 6 weeks. TIP: I have dark brown hair with warm chocolate (slightly red) tones. My hair dresser suggested that I try medium brown for touch-ups instead of dark brown, and she was right. So...my advice is to go one shade lighter than you might think you need. Using the medium brown on my roots blended really nicely with my natural hair color. Bottom line is that once you get the right color, this is the easiest touch-up application I've tried and it lasts a long time. Highly recommend over other touch-up brands.
