Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way darker than advertised I used the dark ash brown on my dyed light auburn hair. The color prediction on the box matched my roots perfectly, but when I used the dye as directed, my hair turned pitch black. It's WAY darker than the box suggests even after washing it three times, and now I'm off trying to find some way to fix it, which is probably going to require putting on more chemicals

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My stylist asked me what I was using! I have naturally red hair but as I've gotten older it's faded, plus I'm getting a few white hairs. I have had my hair colored three times by pros using Aveda and Redken products and my hair came out a weird purple color. I get excellent results from this box color. My hair stylist actually asked what I used so she could recommend it to another client. It's very close to my natural hair color and I hardly notice when my roots grow out. They recently changed the formula (more moisturizing) and I like it even more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get L’Oréal Hicolor instead I have medium brown hair and I tested out the Light Auburn on a strip of my hair and the color came out reddish brown and not like the color on the box. Not at all the color I wanted. So I went to my local beauty supply and purchased the L’Oréal Hicolor in sizzling copper and mixed it with 30 volume developer. Then I added 1, plus a half of the color intensifying tube, that comes with the dye, to 3 boxes of dye. My hair looks just like the box and is such a lovely color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color starts Fading within 2 weeks!! I so wanted to be able to give this product a 5 star review but unfortunately, it's undeserving of 5 stars. When this product is improved and the color last more than 2 weeks (I'm hoping at least 3) then and only then will I update my review. I am a faithful customer to Loreal products and I'm disappointed in this one.

My stylist says I need to buy a 30 volume developer to mix with the dye I purchase. Is that always the case or do some dyes come with the developer? Stylist also suggests I mix beige and ash blond for my color (doing root touch up).

I used this brand and it didn’t color my hair at all. However, I noticed on the box it says it is used to color grey hair. My hair is not grey at all. Is it only used to cover up greys? If so, can you recommend another dye for red hair to blonde hair?

I want to highlight my hair, but the package I bought has bleach and I don’t want to use bleach. Can I just use one of these tubes with 30 developer? I have dark brown almost black hair and I want caramel colored highlights. Also, what shade should I buy?

Asked by: valerieccc
If you have dark brown almost black, you are going to have a hard time, if not impossible to get a caramel color without using some bleaching product. Been doing hair for 50 years and have answered this question many times.

Which color would be the best match for Goldwell 5NN, which my stylist has been using? My natural hair was dark brown with reddish undertones. I now have a lot of gray, esp in front. In "Try on" 4.5N & 5.5N look ok but identical. 4G & 4A also look ok..

Asked by: socsci
Hi There, Thanks for reaching out! Excellence Creme offers superior gray coverage. We suggest trying a neutral shade of color. It is always best to select the lighter shade of color first. If the color seems too light you can easily go darker 48 hours later if your hair is in good condition. Thanks for your interest in L'Oreal!

Asked by: Caarju18
Hi Caarju18! Thank you for using Feria, R57-Intense Medium Auburn. Regretfully color will not lighten another color. So when the color has faded, you can return to a lighter shade or have the color removed in order to get back to a lighter shade.
