    Tried this product, but it didn't work. My roots are still as grey as before I colored - so disappointing.

        One thing you need to know about this product is you need to start out lighter if you are trying to go darker. There is also a phone number where you can call consultants and they will answer any questions about your hair or the color itself. My hair is light brown and I had been having it colored at a salon with highlights and low lights and am trying to save money, so decided to use this. I went medium brown #500 with a suggestion from the consultant. She said start out lighter and that way you can always go darker if that is too light. It worked fine for me. And actually I may even try the next darker number.

          I bought this because I have shorter hair and thought the idea of being able to reuse dye and not throw out half the bottle was a great idea. I'm long time user of L'Oreal les blondissimes line of hair dye and have never had any issues with that product. The first use didn't come out as great as I expected, but blamed that one user error. The second use, once again, I wasn't satisfied. I bought the Pure Lightest Blonde but the color is more like a dark blonde. Definitely not what it looks like or tells you to expect on the box. I've also noticed that my hair feels greasy immediately after use. I washed my hair really long trying to get out the product but it seems like it just doesn't want to come out without shampoo. I definitely would not buy this product again. I'll be switching back to the les blondissimes line.

            Followed directions and by the time I rinsed, I realized it was a complete waste of time since it covered none of my grey. Horrible I tossed the rest of the bottle away.

              My hair is a medium blonde & used to highlight it until the grays took over & started coloring it...I never used a Loreal hair dye, but used many other of their products with great success..my hair is short so this product sounded great & I was able to get 2 uses out of it. The first use(8 weeks ago), it barely covered the gray (around my temples & hairline) so I blamed myself, thinking I didn't use enough...so today I tried again & used the second half of the bottle..it went on great & I had plenty to cover all my gray...I set an alarm for 30 min. & came back about 15 min. later & screamed when I looked in the mirror..my hair looked almost black!!!..it was NOT this color the first time I used it..I was torn btween keeping it on to make sure to cover the grays or immediately rinsing it out...I waited another 5 min. & rinsed it out & used the conditioner it comes with....my hair is now a medium BROWN...not at all the color I wanted...I have always used a med to dark blonde dye but have never had it turn out this DARK...I don't know what happened btwn the 1st & 2nd use, but it was 2 totally different colors. Please be very cautious with this product.

              Comments about L'Oréal Superior Preference Mousse Absolue:

              I've used preference for years, and was excited when I saw the Mousse advertised. It looked so easy and thought it would cut down on the mess & preparation involved with coloring. I thought this would be a great way to touch up the grays around the hairline. I followed the directions, remembering to shake, shake, shake the container. It did absolutely nothing to the grays. It was a complete waste of my time and money. I will stick with the Preference that I always use.

              Tried this product several times (used 3 packages over the course of about 6+ months) and really wanted to like it because of the convenience and price - nut the bad outweighed the good. Does not cover gray hair very well, and even after rinsing, rinsing, and rinising again in cool water, the product left my hair so greasy that I had to shampoo it right after coloring. Wish this product did not have the ammonia, as this dried my hair as well. Going back to a product without ammonia, even if it is less convenient

              Don't waste your time with this product if you have dark hair, despite what the box says it definitely doesn't work. I have shoulder length dark brown hair and I attempted to dye it medium mahogany brown. I followed the directions exactly and used the whole bottle with absolutely no results. My hair color didn't change at all. I have dyed my hair in the past and have never gotten such a lack of results.

              Bought this product at Target. Have been using L'Oreal hair color for over 20 years. I am very happy with Excellence but decided to try the mousse for root touch up. Very disappointed!! Didn't cover gray AT ALL! Left product on for 30 minutes. Read directions three times. Will NOT buy this product again! Waste of time & money!!!
