        Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

        This purchase was a different shade than I normally get. I've used 6RB for a few years and bought 6CB this time. The color was nice but I intially questioned whether it covered as well as usual. After a couple washes, it clearly isn't giving me the coverage I'm use to. So while I'd recommend it, I'd say you might be disappointed depending on the exact color used.

          Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

          I had medium dark brown (virgin-no chemical) hair with 1-5% grey. My hair has just started to grey, traumatic enough in itself. So, I wanted to blend out greys naturally without bleaching or changing my haircolor too much. I used this product and my hair turned out BLACK. It looks terrible. That said, it is glossy. Should I have chosen a lighter color?? I chose based on box picture. I am extremely disappointed. Worse yet, it does not rinse out easily! It is 3 weeks and about 30 washings later and black color has hardly budged. HELP?!! My boyfriend called it "severe" and "coarse". Not good. I hate it!

            Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

            I have been using this hair color for over a year now to cover my grays and give my hair a fresh look. I love this stuff. I have medium-light brown hair and this color, Cool Chestnut Brown, perfectly covers the grays and gives my hair a glossy brown tint.

            Very easy to apply, I can do it myself or my teenage daughter can do it for me. And this stuff goes a long way, I have very long hair, goes past my bra strap, and one box does the trick for me. I do not have super thick hair but I have a lot of hair, so if your hair is thick you may want to purchase two boxes just in case. This color is supposed to last through 28 shampoos, but I shampoo every day and this color always lasts at least two months in my hair.

            This hair color is not expensive and I can usually find a coupon, so I think this is much better than paying $$$ at the salon.

            Only Con: this stuff smells kind of weird. Not necessarily bad, but certainly not good. Almost kind of earthy, but I can tolerate it.

            I will continue to use this hair color for a long time to come. Thank you L'Oreal!

              I always get my hair professionally colored but with the holidays, it's been hard to find time to make an appointment. I bought this on a whim bc I hated looking in the mirror and knowing I needed a color job SOON. This product was easy to use" not too messy and gave me a great all over color. And....it was so much cheaper than going to the salon. I definitely use it again.

                Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

                My natural color is medium blonde. Pretty close to what's on the package I used, Vanilla Creme/Medium Blonde 8. My hair gets lighter in the summer from the sun and about every December the difference between my sun-kissed hair and my new growth starts to bug me. I have used Natural Instincts in in the past and all blonde shades come out looking great. I use it in December and sometimes 1 other time before summer, that's all.
                I don't know why I picked up L'Oreal Healthy Look this time but I truly regret it.

                The product is easy to use, just mix and apply, wait and rinse out. Shortly before the 20 minutes was up I looked in the mirror and was surprised how dark my hair looked. As I rinsed and looked at my ends I was starting to get worried because they were an odd dark color.
                I kept hoping as my hair dried it would lighten up but it did not. The end result was a dark purplish grayish color. So not medium blonde. Unfortunately I had to leave for an event but as soon as I came home I washed my hair a few times with a clarifying shampoo. Now it's lighter but still purplish gray. My root area is starting to show a little bit of blonde. It's so disgusting!
                I will be spending much of tomorrow washing my hair and deep conditioning it.
                From reading the reviews I can see I'm not the only one to suffer this awful color mishap.
