    Comments about L'Oréal Healthy Look 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 Healthy Look 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.

            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)

                Did not give any warning that toner could turn a light blonde to a lavender. Color highly misrepresented on box. My previous shade of platinum blonde is now half brassy(at the roots) and half purple (at the ends). Terrible product and highly advised against using it.

                I picked up the dark brown shade after I had quite a bit of fading after a beach vacation. I still have 3 weeks to go until I can get to the salon for professional color. This product works great ..I have a nice brown color and it'll wash out by the time I'm ready to have my hair cut and colored.

                  Comments about L'Oréal Healthy Look Creme Gloss Hair Color:

                  I was a long time Natural Instincts user, until they changed the formula, which no longer gave me the color it was supposed to and was too much of a pain to use, since you basically are coloring your hair every 2 weeks with the color and refresher. Then I switched to Herbashine, but they discontinued the line. My only alternative for a semi-permanent hair color was Healthy Look Crème Gloss Hair Color. While I've only found one store in my area that carries the color I use, the color is perfect and lasts a long time. It's easy to use and the larger tube of conditioner makes my hair soft and shiny. I just hope they don't discontinue this line!
