L'Oreal Paris Casting Sublime Mousse
I've used a lot of shampoo dyes from asian brands and your normal drugstore hair dyes in the past so I thought I would give this one a shot as it had fairly high ratings from the girls here on beautyheaven. Unfortunately, this would have to be one of the worst dyes I've ever used. The foaming was minimal to non-existant, I followed the instructions and did not shake the bottle but the foam still came out quite runny and there was more colour coming out towards the end of the application. The smell is fairly strong when it's in your face (which can happen often if its not foaming and pliable like the instruction pictures) compared to some of the other drugstore dyes that are available these days like Garnier Olia. My hair is just below my shoulders, and although it is thick, one box has always been enough. As it is, I could barely cover 80% of it and will now have to redye. Overall, supremely disappointed, look elsewhere.

Easy to use, no mess hair colour
This product is amazing. I have long hair and have found this product very easy to use. The mousse formula spreads easily through the hair without dripping or making a mess. It rinses out quickly and doesn't stain the skin. I was skeptical at first as to how capable I would be to colour my hair by myself, but this product has eliminated any doubt! One packet is plenty for long hair. I always use 5.0 Pure Brown and the result is a medium/dark toned brown. I highly recommentd this product.

I've used this DIY hair colour a number of times now....I grab it when it's on special.
I love the mousse concept...makes it easy to apply for me and mess-free...I don't like the drips. I think this hair colour has quite a pleasant smell to it.
I always follow the instructions to a T...and I always buy the reddy brown shades...they're my favourite. Although whenever I use this brand, I leave the colour on for 3o mins as stated and when I rinse it out and my hair dries...my colour is almost black....no red, just dark, dark brown - black....it's not until weeks later when the colour begins to fade that I start to see hints of a red colour and this is mainly under lighting or sun.
I keep buying it though because by the time I get around to it...my grey halo has taken over my head and I'm in desperate need of a colour and when it's on sale I grab it....I just wish the colour result was more like what is shown on the box.

913 turned my dark ash blonde hair hideous copper orange
The box (and photograph) describes the colour as "exquisite light beige blonde" I followed the instructions to a t, I used 1.5 boxes for my long and high lighted hair. half way into the development time I could see the revolting copper colour and prayed it would lift to blonde by the full 30 minutes but no. It stayed this revolting unnatural copper orange colour that looks like a bad mens toupe. Thankfully it had no effect whatsoever on my highlights - expect it wouldn't work on grey hair - , if not for that I would be devastated. Ladies, PLEASE go to the salon saving yourself one or a couple of hundred dollars isn't worth feeling self conscious and shame on L'Oreal for getting the colour indicator so wrong with this product its throroughly misleading. The colour indicator for my hair was about a shade lighter so I thought it was a safe option especially for regrowth. This orange horror came as a huge shock as I have no red undertones or colouring and never have as my hair is ash blonde and never even needed a toner in the past when highlighted. RESPONSE FROM L'OREAL PARIS: We are very sorry to hear about your experience with your L’Oreal Paris product and that it is not suitable for your hair. We would love the opportunity to talk to you directly about this so we welcome you to contact our product experts for any further information or advice we can offer you including ingredients related queries. You can contact them on 1300 659 359 at your convenience. Thanks.
Go direct to the salon do not linger in the toiletries isle you will regret it!
Someone with dark ash blonde hair actually wanting a weird copper colour and toupe manufacturers.

May not purchase again
So, this was the first time dying my hair. Keep in mind, my hair is Asian therefore jet black. I bought the pure blond shade. The process is easy, it was the result that I did not like. I left the dye in for 5 hour, no exaggeration. I had nothing better to do that day. The condition made my hair soft but my hair had barely been coloured, you can only slightly notice it if you put it into the sun.

so easy & so gorgeous!
I love this hair colour. I've been dying my hair for over20 years mostly at home and this by far the best product I've ever used. I get great, long lasting colour with oodles of hilighty depth. Couldn't be happier!

There are pros & cons
Very easy to apply with the foam application however the colour was a lot darker than anticipated with no highlights or any variation whatsoever... Will need to select lighter shades next time.

Foam application is a breeze
What I like about this product is how mess free & easy to use it is. I use on myself & also regularly colour my daughters (long) hair - always the process is easy, relatively drip free, & gives a consistent colour result. I don't have to worry about hair dye spreading it's way over me or the bathroom, unlike the more traditional non-foam formulas.
I do find it lasts fairly well too, easily can go 2+ months between colours with not much fading or need to touch up

Pure dark brown = Jet Black
Pure dark brown looks like a medium brown on the packet but don't be fooled! This product left me with Jet BLACK hair, I expected it to turn out slightly darker as they normally do but 4 shades darker than the box is CRAZY! There was not even a shimmer of brown in my hair in the sun, it was totally black. I contacted the company but the response was to call another phone number.I went from a level 7 to a level 1 colour which looked horrible, I have to have the colour removed from my hair and highlights into fix the mess.
