              Great idea but doesn't work. I used it as described in directions, shook it like crazy and no color. Not recommended, poor product

                      I have been coloring my long hair for over 15 years. This is the messiest product I have ever used. The fumes were overwhelming. Will not use again.

                        I'll start out by saying that I have absolutely no gray to cover, so I can't give my opinion on that area. I used this product, applying almost the entire bottle. I have long hair that had pretty bad root growth. My hair is now the same color from root to tip, which is sometimes a problem with drugstore hair dyes. The reason I only give it a 3, is because I could get the same coverage for about 5 dollars less with any other product. My hair wasn't left greasy, although I always use shampoo when rinsing out my hair dye. I'd bought this product on a whim and almost returned it after reading the reviews. However, I lost my receipt, so I just went ahead and used it. No problems what so ever. Not sure why so many people are having issues with it...

                                    This product worked fine the first time I used it. Covered my gray and colored as expected. I liked using the foam. But I bought this for the re-usability of it for touch-ups. It didn't work on the second application. No color, the fumes were excessively harsh, and made my hair very greasy which didn't wash out all the way. Bottom line, is it's too expensive for just one application. It's a great concept, please fix it!

                                          I feel the need to write a review after reading all of the negative ones. I purchased this on a whim, as it is not my usual brand (although I have had good luck with L'Oreal). I liked the description of "icy blonde" because I am forever looking for a cool blonde. After buying it, I checked the reviews and they were so unanimously bad, I almost bought my regular brand and didn't try it. I did, however, try it and am very pleased with the results. The color is beautiful! I don't have very many grays, but the coverage was good, it may even look better than when I go to the salon.
                                          The instructions advise not to tip the bottle. In the illustrations of the use, the model is tipping the bottle to directly apply mousse to her hair. I kept the bottle flat, and dispensed into my hand, then applied as needed. I'm not sure if this is where the trouble lies, seeing as it may be improper mixing of the two active ingredients that causes poor results. My results were great! I'm not sure how using the leftover will be for touching up, especially as I can't see how much is left, but I will revise my review if need be.

                                          I've been coloring my hair for many years and I'm shocked at the reviews on this product. I'm not sure what color others are reviewing, but I used the dark brown. Although it was darker than I preferred, I'm going to try the lighter brown next time. The best part is that my hair grows so fast, that I have to touch up after a week or two. I'm been waiting for a product that you could use twice. It seems I usually throw away half of the hair color. I highly recommend this product (at least if you have dark brown hair). I'm not sure why the bad reviews on this website other than maybe it is for the lighter colors.

                                                I left the color on for 30 minutes, and I noticed it wasn't developing. I reapplied, shaking the can vigorously in between applications, just as indicated. After 30 more minutes, still no color development. I am using darkest brown, so there should be some color. I am really disappointed. I will not purchase again unless Loreal corrects this. From what I can tell, not enough color formula mixes with the developer when the two are dispensed. I wish I had read the reviews before I wasted $15.

                                                I loved this hair color, it was easy to use. No mixing and the foam did not drip like regular hair color. You have to read the instructions and make sure to apply lots of foam to the roots repeatedly. I used it for touch up because my last hair color two weeks ago turned out too red toned and brassy (especially at the roots where the gray appeared lighter reddish brown). I used the dark brown and it gave excellent coverage and color. I have chin length hair and still have enough left for another application for touch up. This product is great if you need to cover roots at the top AND there is leftover coloring that can be used for up to a year (according to the
                                                instructions). I had read the reviews here and was a little bit hesitant, but it worked well for me. Hopefully, the next application of remaining product will work as well. With the Ulta and L'Oreal coupons, the price was better - the only downside is the higher price of this product.
