    I have tried several different products to cover my graying 63 year old hair, and find this product the best--so far. The color lasts a long time.

      Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme:

      This was the first time I used the product. I bought it because it was on sale. I was looking for something to cover gray. Other products I have tried have not worked for me, therefore I go to the salon. After using this product I was pleasantly surprised to have come out with a great color. It gave my old lowlights a new color, more of a caramel color, which I love. Soft and natural. A whole new look!

        Abosolutely terrible!! Do NOT waste your money on this!

        A while ago I dyed my hair blonder than it was naturally, so it was a golden light brown (two or so shades lighter than my normal hair color). I let it grow out and in a long time (two years almost to the date) and the ends of my hair were slightly lighter than the top. It gave me a very natural ombre look. So I wanted to ramp it up because after the years I grew it out the color faded. I bought this and hoped the blonde on the end of my hair would look even brighter than before! I picked out the natural blonde shade Excellence Creme by Loreal due to its high reviews and the color on the box. It was brighter than I wanted, but knowing how hair dye works I knew it would never really get that bright. My sister and I have dyed hair a lot, including ombre on her and a few of our friends so this was no new venture, and we followed all directions. So I only applied the color to the bottom of my hair to do an ombre effect like we have in the past. At first after dying I feared my hair was even DARKER. Then I looked at the pictures I had taken before veruses after to find out THERE WAS NO CHANGE AT ALL. My hair has always taken to every other dye I used, and this is my first dye in two years, so there is no reason it didn't take. Looking even closer the hair is just smoother and healither looking, a bit brassy. If I hold the end up to my roots you can see a difference, the difference of the color I put in two years ago. AWFUL. Do not buy. I'm going back to the store to BUY ANOTHER BRAND. Save yourself the dissappointment and the money.

          My hair tends to go warm and turn red or orange with boxed blonde color. This is the first one in years that I have used that didn't make me look like a head of rust. Amazing results and now saves me a fortune at the salon.

              I love the cream instead of a drippy liquid.
              It's color fast.
              Easy to apply and lovely color.

                    I don't usually use this brand or color my hair myself. I have my hair stylist do my color. If I need to do my own color in the future, I will use a different brand. The color didn't last 3 weeks.

                      I get lots of compliments on this color. Most people think it is my natural hair and not a hair color.
