Comments about L'Oréal Superior Preference Mousse Absolue:

Was excited to try this product for spot touch ups. Sorry to say, this product was a big disappointment. I purchased it to touch up a little grey around the temples and sideburns, as well as roots.
I waited 30mins as directed. It was easy, but unfortunately ineffective.
Product does NOT cover minimal greys, or root growth.
A big waste of time and $$.

      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.

                    This is a great idea!! I don't mind paying $11-13.00 for a hair color that I can reuse 2 - 3 times, I love it! the colors are just what I needed and NO MESS at all! I gave it 3 stars (and I guess this comes from being a mousse) It barely covers my grey hair; I have dark brown hair (almost black) and you can see them coming through my hair, this mousse will maybe cover them for one day and tafter that they turn light brown ... at the end it is not an even color. Please work in your formular and I will be buying this product forever. I will give it a second try next month.

                      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.

                      First time I saw the ad on TV, I already told my daughter that I will surely buy this to try. I'd been using Excellence twice a month for years already and I absolutely love it. I am disappointed when I tried this mousse on my roots first, nothing happens. But I did not give up, I vigorously shake and shake and shake it and applied it again to my roots after a week, and still nothing happened. I'd been using L'OREAL products but with this one I am disappointed.
