New and improved version is much too dark

published

I have used the amber semi permanent colour for a couple of years and was thrilled to find a semi permanent colour that suited me. However the 'new improved' version is far too dark and hair is not as glossy as it used to be.The end result does not match the colour indicated on the box, but it did before you changed it. I have now got to search again to find the perfect colour. Why on earth did you change a good product? Very disappointed.

Chestnut not amber

published

I'm a natural redhead with some grey. This product is not recommended. Instead of the amber colour shown, it came out a brown chestnut colour and did not fully cover the grey roots around my face. Very disappointed as the packet colour was exactly what I wanted.

Why change when not broke!! Casting 700 dark blonde NOT what it used to be!!

published

I have always used this product for years, but hadn't used since covid with lockdowns etc etc for about 2 years as not going anywhere. Bought new colour to brighten hair for Christmas found everything has changed? Why have you changed the formula, its deceiving when you still advertise as the same colour? Well no, it no longer covers grey? No longer (beeswax?) leaves your hair shiny and manageable, now flat and dull and much darker than dark blonde, its dull brown? Also hard to follow the changed instructions! looking for a new brand very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Red tinge won't go away!

published

It was a lovely rich colour, but it's a pity so much comes out when you wash. It would stain my towel each wash (but at least that washed out easily).

It has also stuck around longer than expected-- I dyed my hair in July or August; it is now a week into October and I have still got red tinged hair. I can see the root regrowth. So much for 28 days wash out!

I'm not sure why it is lasting, omeyimes I even wash my hair twice a day!

Completely useless

Did absolutely nothing. I followed the instructions exactly, my hair is medium blonde and it didn't lighten at all. I can't see any change in the lightness of my hair.

This product performs beautifully and as promised.

published

I wash my hair about once a week with sulfate and silicone free shampoos, and the colour lasts several months and is true to the colour on the box. My hair remained soft and undamaged after use. I previously used this product and then washed my hair with regular shampoo (containing silicones, sulfates, alcohol etc) and the colour faded out from my hair within a month (washing once a week). This may have also been due to my hair never having been chemically processed and therefore less porous. The dye performed well on my now permed hair and did not seem to cause further damage of any kind. I would recommend this product for those wanting to try new colour shades but unwilling to commit to the care and damage if permanent dye.

Really great hair colour!

published

Been using this colour for around 5 years now and love it. My hair is naturally grey/white and the #1021 colours it beautifully and has never damaged my hair which is fairly fine in texture. I get lots of random compliments from strangers so they're not biased. But here's the trick: Leave it on for 35 to 40 minutes, NOT the 15 the package says!!! I don't think it would colour well over dark hair.
I wash my hair every 2 to 3 days and the colour fades gracefully after about a month.

Purchased for $15.

It does not come off after 28 washes. I am stuck with this Color.

It does not come off after 28 washes. I am stuck with this Color. Please do not misguide people by advertising it as semi permanent and comes off after 28 washes. It’s been two months and I have washed my hair much more than 36 times.

What happened to the beeswax conditioner?

published

Disappointing that the beeswax conditioner has been replaced by a coconut cream conditioner that leaves hair DULL and such a TANGLED MESS it is difficult to comb out. The beeswax conditioner left hair beautiful and shiny. Are you bringing the beeswax conditioner back, or should I look for another product?

It may in fact be the Argan Oil that makes the hair static though. Not 100% sure. I did apply both in the same hour so I can't tell yet what is doing it...

Tried to tone orange out of level 7 brown highlights

published

My hair is shiny and soft after colouring. The orange is slightly toned out but I am pairing it with a blue shampoo to get it where I want. There is a sizeable amount of conditioner left over for ongoing maintenance. Very easy to apply as the creme prevents dripping and even saturation. Make sure you use a rat tail comb to section your hair to ensure you get to the roots all over.

I removed a star because it did slightly lighten the roots even though it says it doesn't. I have highlights through black hair and the black hair is noticeably slightly lighter after colouring.

Darker than expected

I coloured my natural medium brown hair, leaving it on for 20 minutes. It did a good job at covering my grey hairs, didn't stain, but the hair colour is visibly darker. I hope it washes out

Fabulous!

published

I used Light Brown 600, it came as a very lovely, natural looking, rich brown colour. Very smooth and shiny too. I'm loving it! And despite the other reviews, the new hazelnut conditioner made my hair look healthy, sleek and shiny. The smell really isn't that bad in my opinion. Overall, super happy and I had lots of positive comments about my hair. I wish I used it sooner.

Not the one in this picture but Silky Blonde 801 is a beautiful colour!

published

The Silky Blonde 801 is by far the most natural blonde colour without it looking bleached and white nor orange. I have tried other Blonde colours in the Loreal range over the years and this is the nicest colour yet. It leaves your hair feeling soft, silky and is not a strong smell but pleasant scented when applying and afterwards. Love this product and please keep making it forever! I am a dark Blonde to light brown natural hair colour.

I put a platinum Jerome Russel toner on my hairand unfortunately it turned blue. I took the colour down by using b4 and it is now an acceptable pale ash blond. I have bought a Loreal castings cream gloss 1021light pearl blond. Will this help?

I’ve used casting for years. It last 3-4 days then immediately begins fading. Colours are only just working again after what I think was about 1 year of bad batches and weaker formulas.
