          Comments about L'Oréal Excellence Creme Gloss Hair Color:

          I really liked this, I've only colored my hair one other time in my life and it turned out to be a horrible experience (my hair did NOT turn out like the color I wanted) so I was really nervous to color my hair at home again but I was pleasantly surprised with our beautiful this color turned out (medium chestnut brown) I have yet to try a touch up with this color so we will see how that goes when the time comes.

                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.

                  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.
