Most Helpful Positive Review Great way to refresh golden hued blondes!
I recieved a #voxbox this month, and it included the Loreal Magic Root Cover Up in the shade Medium Blonde. Now, full disclosure, this was sent to me for free for testing and review purposes. The instructions are super easy, shake, spray, and wait! I tried this on a few blondes (the plus to being a family full of them), it never left any weird residue or texture like dry shampoos do. When it dried it didnt rub off or bleed color at all, however when it was still drying it did bleed color onto my hands. The application was super easy and the coverage was pretty good! My only complaint is that the shade itself is pretty warm toned and not at all suited for cool toned blondes. You can see in the hair pictures how it really left a golden tone. But in my moms warm blonde hair it blended in perfectly, and even covered any grays(not that she has any ) All in all, if you're a warm toned blonde in need of a touch up between dye jobs, I say give it a try!

Most Helpful Critical Review fail!
I have dark roots and when I sprayed this on it made my hair look bronze and dirty. I had to use almost the whole can you get just a little coverage and then it went away if you touch it. I really hated this product.
Reviewed by 280 customers I would not buy this product again

I applied it to my roots and it turned them orange
Yes I would buy this product again
Shar from Franklinton
Covered my gray roots and blended naturally
Definitely not the color I was looking for- YELLOW
Brittany with the thin hair from Charlotte NC
This product left the ugliest yellow film on my hair that I could not get out. I used it exactly as the directions say and will not be using it again- it took forever for me to make my hair look normal again
Would not recommend
Rachel P153 from undisclosed
This product reminds me of the spray in Halloween hair dye. It is sticky and gross. You can't run your fingers thorough your hair without feeling the funk and seeing it all over your hands, fingers, and nails. It does somewhat cover the grays if you are desperate and need a quick fix to hide them in a styled updo.
Light Blonde Suits Me!

My Natural Hair Could Be Stays Light Blonde All My Whole Life And The Rest Of My Whole Life!!!!!
Definitely not the quick fix I thought it would be.
April from AR
I thought this would help cover my roots during COVID, but NOOOOO. I had to use a ton just to cover one spot, and it didn't blend well at all. I threw the second can away without even using it. Would not recommend at all.
I would not buy again. will be returning for refund

Terrible, orange in color
Not helpful for blondes

I received this product complimentary to test; it mildly worked but was a very uncomfortable texture and unnatural look. Ive seen the tik toks where blondes go brunette with the product, so there could be potential with the brunette color version.
Love love love it

I have highlights. My roots are dark brown mixed with white hair. I used this spray to cover my roots. OMG, does it work!!! I recommend this! I also bought the light brown just in case the blonde spray didn't work. (I've read that the dark brown spray is too dark...like a black color).

Makes your roots orange.
Don't waste your money
sandy from md
it made my roots look more grey that they were- very odd! and it was not cheap!
honestly think it's cool
michelleburnss from undisclosed
So I have given myself blonde highlights and have been contemplating dyeing my hair back to brunette and I needed to see how it looked first. I ended up using two cans of this but it really gave me a good sense of how it would look. This stuff is really pigmented and is super easy to use, I changed my shirt and the color does transfer to your clothes and will rub off but its supposed to just be on your roots so it really shouldnt be a problem. All in all I really enjoyed using this product.
Color didn't match-otherwise still just okay
karsens1 from undisclosed
I tried this product free thanks to influenster back when I was blonde. Since I didnt get to pick the color, it did not match-however I didnt take any stars off for that as I couldnt pick the color. I was surprised how well it covered my roots, but I have a hard time believing it could get dark roots as light as it claims. It doesnt feel heavy at all, but it does leave a little residue kind of like if you have too much dry shampoo in.

I think the concept of this product was so great, unfortunately it did not work at all for my hair/lifestyle. The color was dark, brassy, and almost orange-ish and did not blend well. It immediately made my hair look greasy, as you can see in the picture. Even after attempting to brush it through, my hair looked very dirty and wet almost. I do have fine hair so it could just be a texture issue? I was able to pull it back and mix in some dry shampoo and did attempt to wear it for a day while working from home/running errands to see if it got better once it was warmed on the scalp/blown out by the wind. Unfortunately, it did not. I even began to sweat it out as the day went on. I LOVE LOral products, and strictly purchase all of my shampoo/conditioner/boxed dyes from their lines, however I would not ever purchase this item in the future. It simply wasnt for me. I will continue using their other blonde-concentrated products though, and would recommend those products (EverPure, boxed dyes, etc.) as alternatives if you had a poor experience with this product as well.
perfect for quick touch ups
considermydear from undisclosed
I like this product, but I think if my hair was more contrast it would make more of a difference. It was super easy to use and didnt get everywhere.
allilynn923 from undisclosed
I love this product! It works great and smells great. I would definitely buy it myself and I have been able to use it anywhere. I love that I can throw it in my purse.
Good for a quick touch up
natchivers from undisclosed
This product was really good, like other people have said, during the pandemic if you could not touch up your hair by going to a salon or do not want to use box dye. It does wash out rather easily like those spray hair color cans during Halloween. I do think it is just a better formulated one of those. However, it kinda reminded me of dry shampoo a bit, it doesnt just magically make your hair that shade it more or so just mixes with your hair color. It does take a long time to dry so you cant just use it immediately before going out. Lastly, I would not recommend using if you have a balayage since it does kinda make it look a little weird even if the balayage was growing out.
Decent when in a pinch
christajo5 from undisclosed
I received this product for free from Influenster in lieu of my honest opinion. This product is a decent product when in a pinch, or in our case, on quarantine and unable to go to the salon. This product is easy to apply, but the biggest downside is that it takes so long to dry. It washes out easily which is also a huge plus. Overall this product is great if you can't actually touch up your roots!
Not as advertised.
samanthameadows3b29a from undisclosed
I like the concept and idea however I did not get the results that were advertised and have the exact blonde color as well as dark roots. It turned the dark roots a tad bit lighter but no where near what was advertised.
wow this really works
jordinhd73e from undisclosed
So idk if I can give an honest review since I had dyed my hair brown by the time Influenster sent this to me to try (for free) . But I thought it was amazing, I used it to put some highlights in my hair and it really works. The only thing I didnt like was the aerosol smell, it kinda took my breath away. But other than that I will continue to buy for my ever changing hair color to add some extra highlights or to touch up my roots when I go back to blonde.
jescruto from undisclosed
I wasnt expecting to not be able to go to my hair dresser to get touch ups during this time, so it was nice to get this in the mail. It worked well for the time being, but the sprayability and consistency lacked finesse. Will most likely not purchase this in the future and just go to my hairdresser to get my roots touched up.
Very Pleased with the Results
Hilltop83 from Poland, OH
Really great when you can't get a root touch-up due to a pandemic.
amandab251 from undisclosed
This ended up being to light for me, but I gave it to my mom and she loves it, especially not being able to go to the salon right now!
amandad19 from undisclosed
I work for a salon so I am used to using Loral professional products, not loral paris. This did the job but I dont think it works quite as well as the professional line but its definitely worth it for the price!
genevieve_hel from undisclosed
This root cover up really is magic! The color looks so natural, & the applicator makes it so easy to spray on. It claims that it lasts through one shampoo & I found that to be true, it only faded just a little bit!
