      Comments about L'Oréal Superior Preference Mousse Absolue:

      Finally a hair color that allows for spot touch ups without wasting an entire box of dye! The mousse is easy to apply and covered the bit of gray around my hairline well. When using, keep in mind that it needs to be left on for 30 minutes. This is longer than the Revlon dye that I use for my entire head.

            Tried this on my roots. Did absolutely nothing to color my hair esp the partially gray roots.

              11-21-14 -- I mistakenly reviewed the Medium Brown 500, so this is for the one I actually used, Dark Blonde 700. Since 1970 I've colored my hair with L'Oreal. I was skeptical that the mousse would be as good as advertised, but was pleasantly surprised. #1: it's truly simple to use--no messy mixing--all you do is shake it. You can even squirt the foam into your hand to apply it. #2: there was plenty of foam for my first application to short hair, and no dripping. It seemed thin so I may have put on too much, because the coverage was excellent and lasted longer than usual. #3: there was plenty for the second application, and amazingly, the color was just as strong and natural as the first time. #5, there is still some foam left which may be enough for a third touchup. Next time I'll use less with each application to make it last even longer. The Mousse Absolue #700 was definitely a five-star experience for me.

                Easy, but doesn't actually color hair.

                    I've colored my hair for a long time, don't have very thick hair and usually end up using very little hair color for routine touch-ups - so I think this is a good idea (a multi-use batch). Now, if it would just actually color the hair... it washes out within a week or so. I actually found this review site after googling the topic to see if others have the same problem with the product. Apparently it is not just me, which makes me a feel a little better - this stuff just doesn't work. Doesn't cover the gray even for the first day. Terrible product, a waste of time and money.

                      I have been using colour foam by John Freida till i saw this new product from loreal.i decided to give it a try as it is reusable and i could keep the remaining for future use. However when i started to pump out the foam,my eyes teared and that was a stingy stench.i had to dispose it even before i could dye my whole head.Never ever will get this.

                          Ugh, I'm always one to try something new, so when I saw this premixed variety of haircolor, I thought it might be a good thing. The application was easy, the smell wasn't that good. The worst part is that is is SO hard to wash out of your hair and it feels like you have Crisco or something on your hair. It just leaves a really bad texture in your hair, not soft and glossy, but weighed down and greasy and sticky. I tried to blow dry and just gave up. My hair won't dry with this gunk on it. Can't wait to wash it out. The color is OK, but the feel of it is awful.

                              I love that one box covers ALL my hair. (I have a lot of hair.) It's also as anti-messy as hair color can be. And I can use leftover color for touch-ups! Love this product.

                              I've had more than a few stylists give me bad color jobs. Tired of paying $300+ for horrible color that I hated! Went back to doing it myself. Love this color for its easy use. No mixing, just shake it, put the dispenser cap on, and its ready to go. I am starting to get gray hair along my crown and hairline near my ears, and I noticed the color fades from the gray within the first week or so, but I may not have left on long enough. But as easy as this is to use, I don't think that will keep me from buying this color again. The color is GORGEOUS, and its so easy, I can touch up those grays anytime.
