            So glad I found this easy to use touch up. I only have gray around my temple and front hairline. The applicator was easy and drip free for accurate application. I never smelled any ammonia. I got complete coverage after the maximum application time of 15 minutes for my stubborn grey. This will be my new coloring product!

              This product does what it's meant to. Easy to use and covers grey roots. The color blends in well with my permanent hair color product.

              Was worried about it matching my salon color, and it not only covered my grey, but matched beautifully.

                Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

                Directions were easy to follow. Covered fairly easy with little mess. A few stubborn hairs in front didn't cover however I could have left on longer. Pleased with the #4 for my dark brown. I would not go darker. This was just right. I was tempted to continue over my whole head.

                Used root fouchup 5 for ...

                Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

                Used root fouchup 5 for the first time instead of regular box 5N. Unfortunatly it did not cover the greys after a 15 min. Time. The apli ator is okay but nothing that a fine comb would do as well. Stay with box color or special mix and developer. Waste of time
