    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!

    I love the color and the ease it goes on, but it tends to fade over time.

      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.

        horrible color!

          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.

              Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

              I'm a teen and I wanted a new look for my hair! I had a redish brown hair and I used manic panic (without any bleach) so I wanted a dark hair color so I used this product and it's awesome!!! My hair is dark and it has some highlights from the hair that I missed when dyeing but it's perfect! The only cons are that it stains your skin a bit, it doesn't hurt but with the brown shades it stains but it will come out with shampoo in a day or two. I'm going to use the blonde kind next becuase I love this and it will be a alternative to bleach so if your doing a color and don't want to bleach this is what to do (I'm doing that)
