      Comments about L'Oréal Multi-Tonal Color System:

      This is a pain to use. First, you have to dye your hair the whole color. Wait as usual, rinse, condition, rinse. Then, for the highlighting, you have to wait til your hair is 98%-100% dry and apply highlights, wait, rinse, condition, rinse, style. The color on the box isn't even close to what I got for the all over applique. I got a super dark auburn instead. The highlights didn't take at alllllll. I've been dying my hair for years. This is the first time I was disgusted with end results. My other trusted hair dye I've used for years, decided to discontinue the color I've used or I would've never gotten this. Still wish I would've never gotten this, but it was also recommended by the Utla salon stylist there. So, I figured she knew what she was talking about. Not.

                        I have dyed black hair, and tried to lighten it and ended up hot roots/banding. If I use the cherry chocolate mousse, will the all over color lighten my dark hair? Or should I just try to highlight it to cover the banding? I don't know what to do

                          Hi Dee! Those numbers represent the undertones in the haircolor. For instance, a .1 means there is an Ash undertone while a .2 is more of an Iridescent undertone, and a .0 would mean it is a neutral shade. We hope this helps!

                      • Q:

                        I have naturally medium brown hair that I've been getting colored at s salon for years. The color is a caramel brown with all over chunky light golden blonde highlights. Actually I've had this same color so often that it appears predominantly blonde except the top 2 or 3 inches where the Carmel color is and it's about 50/50 there. I am thinking of using ginger twist in this product. What I would like is coppery red hair with golden blonde highlights. Will this do the trick? I'm worried that the red will be too dark and the highlights won't be prominent enough. Also, a bit worried that the red might look a bit pink on my highlights. And tips/advice/suggestions??

                        Hello, I usually get my hair colored and highlighted at a salon. Though, it's been about 4 or 5 months since I've had it done. My natural hair color is dirty blond. I have short hair to my ear lobe with layers. Would you recommend this product and I like the colors Biscotti 7.0 or 7.1 Vanilla Icing? I'm just nervous that my hair will turn orange. Your response would be greatly appreciated?

                          Thank you for inquiring about our products! If your natural hair color is a dark blonde, you can use either of those shades. The only time you should see orange is if you are using a shade too light for your natural hair color. The 7.1 is a Dark Ash Blonde. To prevent any orange or red tones the ash is the best option.

                        My hair is highlighted blonde but I have so much light gray that, unless I go with another option I'll just have blonde streaks on top of gray. My natural color used to be medium to dark blonde but I've always preferred a weave to make it look lighter and have been able to go around 4 months between weaves as there isn't a very drastic contrast as my hair grows out. Will this cover the gray and which color would you recommend? Can I apply it myself or will I need help?

                          The Couleur Experte is first an all over color and then second a highlighting kit. If your natural hair is in the medium to dark blonde family, yes you can use 7.0 Dark Blonde in the Couleur Experte. This product will also cover your gray!

                        Is there a shade of this product similar to Loreal Preference shade 9, Natural Blonde?

                          Hello! We do not have a light blonde shade in our Couleur Experte line. The closest would be 8.0 Medium Blonde Toasted Coconut, which is a shade darker than the 9 Natural Blonde. If you want to put highlights on top of your 9 Natural Blonde, we recommend checking out our Touch-On Highlights in H90 Iced Champagne!
