    Comments about L'Oréal Root Rescue:

    This is my absolute go-to box color that I count on when my grays decide to show up every 2-3 weeks! (And going to the salon that often in not an option.) What I love about Root Rescue is the color is a perfect match, it leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny. Sooo easy to use and quick. I have very gray resistant hair and it covers it really well. Lasts for about 3 weeks.

      I used the light blond color and it turned out great. Its def on the warmer side so would not look good with really ashy blond is more a light natural blond. I left on 30 mins because I have some grey's and my base color is a level 6

        touched up my hair yesterday morning. Fast and not messy like a full head dye. Lots of compliments last night. Like that I can shampoo after.

              I'm having a tough time keeping up with my gray roots and this product is a good interim solution. It doesn't cover all of the stubborn gray hair, but mostly did a good job. The color is great.

                I like this application/applicator better than the traditional bottle top nozzles of most other products. It isn't as messy and doesn't drip. The color says it is permanent but I end up having to use it usually once a month, not sure if that's because I have stubborn grays or the formula. Would recommend.

                  Absolutely love L'Oreal Root Rescue! I use Soft Black for my gray hair and the color is great. I like the "comb" applicator which makes getting around the hair line easier and less messy. And LOVE the fact that you can use your own shampoo after rinsing the dye out.

                    Does dark brown work for black hair roots? Did L'oreal stop carrying soft black? Does Ulta store in Colma, (south san francisco) carry soft black or black?

                      A:

                      Hi Mary! Unfortunately, our Root Rescue in shades 3 Soft Black and 2 Natural Black have been discontinued. The Dark Brown shade may be a little too light, depending on how dark your haircolor is currently. We do still have our Root Cover Up product in a black shade. This is a temporary root cover product! We hope this helps!
