      Comments about L'Oréal Superior Preference Mousse Absolue:

      This gave me very pretty, shiny color. I love the foam, much less messy than drippy liquids. It covered gray as well as any other color I have used. What I didn't like is the ammonia smell (don't use this if you have asthma),the small gloves (they hardly fit) and the opaque bottle (I have no idea how much is left). Hopefully, L'Oreal will fix these things.

          I don't think I've ever written a review in my life, but I was so horrified by this product that I had to put in my two cents.
          I have been dying my hair for years and have tried numerous different dark brown product variations. I have never come across one even nearly this bad. I followed the directions perfectly. First thing I noticed was that It smelled sulfuric, which was very off-putting. As soon as I started washing the dye out of my hair, I noticed my hair felt like straw. It was all stuck together like glue, which I have never experienced. I thought the conditioner would help, but after leaving it in for 5 minutes and washing it out/drying my hair, I realized my hair quality was still worse that I've ever seen it (I have healthy/shiny hair before this.) I had to throw my hair up in a ponytail and go to work, but it looked greasy and damaged. The color difference was minimal and very flat. I had to wash my hair again twice just to be able to get a brush through it and not feel like a grease ball.
          This product was awful and I would never buy it again. I honestly don't even know how l'oreal allowed it to go on the market. It definitely didn't receive enough testing to be considered useable. Save yourself the time and money and hair damage and DONT buy this hair dye.

                  I followed instructions and even let the product work 10 mns longer than the suggested time. It didn't cover my gray hair at all!!! Waste of time and money!! If you have gray hair this products is not effective!!!

                  HORRIBLE Product! I'm an old hand at using home hair color (been covering grays for about 15 years now!) And this is possibly the worst product I've ever used. I did not have any issues dispensing the product, like many others did. That was the only satisfactory thing about Mousse Absolue. When I went to rinse it out, it congealed into this nasty, slimy paste that was impossible to get out of my hair - I had to go two rounds with regular shampoo to get it all out. It didn't cover my grays very well, and for the few that it did cover initially, the color was completely gone after about a week (and I only wash my hair twice a week.) Also, the color itself was completely flat - no idea where L'Oreal is getting the idea that this gives "Brilliant, multi-tonal color." Will definitely NOT be purchasing this, or possibly any other L'Oreal hair color ever again.

                  I use hair dye to do my brows. I know, you're not supposed to, but with Revlon hair color, I had no issues. ONLY problem with Revlon is that color is one use. So I thought I'd try this and get more bang for my buck cause you can use this product multiple times especially for brows. WRONG! It's nasty smelling and doesn't work at all. First application I had no color on brows. Second one, the brows were uneven though I used the same amount of color. DO NOT buy this product.

                  I was so excited to find a product that I could use as touch-up for my grey roots in between colorings. When I applied the mousse, it immediately turned to water when I touched it. Very difficult to know where I had applied it. It did absolutely nothing! I even left it on longer than the directions stated. My hair and roots look exactly the same as before I used it. :-( I would like my money back please.

                      I've always used Preference, but decided tonight to try the new Mousse Absolute option on the shelf. I purchased the Pure Darkest Brown. I followed the directions to a tee, it came out as a white foam but the smell was so strong that it was making me cough and my eyes water. Because my hair is nearly black, it was hard to tell how much impact it was having, as it wetted down my hair. Once applied, I let it develop for the full 30 minutes (my husband wouldn't even sit by me because the smell was so strong) and then I washed it out. Absolutely no color was applied, all of my gray hair is still popping out against my dark brown hair but now my hair is FRIED. It's got a straw consistency (even after using the conditioner) and still smells terrible. Not a good buy.

                      Brilliant! I have been coloring my own hair for years. I used this for the first time last night and I am THRILLED with the results. Gray covered well, icy shade perfect for my fair skin and blue eyes, hair feels soft and looks great - plus extra for touch ups in a few weeks! THANKS!
