I unfortunately had an unforeseen trip out of the city this month so my sister stepped in again very willingly to review this amazing product. I did however inspect the product beforehand and here’s my little evaluation:
Opening the box I was greeted with a delicious burst of fragrance and the packaging is sleek and eye-catching , gets a 10/10 from me. The step-by-step guide was easy to read and understand. Here forth is my sisters review:
• Loved the scent
• Application was quick, easy and mess-free
• The pointed squeezy applicator perfect for precision
• Hair felt silky, soft and healthy
• Enough conditioner to last 2 washes
• No ammonia
• Covers Grey
• Colour lasts 28 washes
• 20min process time
The only downside was the gloves kept slipping off, would have been more efficient if it had an elastic band round the wrist.
Judging from my sisters experience next time I colour my hair I’ll be reaching for L’Oreal Paris Casting Crème Gloss
I had dark dye in my hair which may have also altered the outcome.
Anyhow, Apart from the specific colour the product itself was amazing.
Things I loved:
Was very impressed with the innovation of screwing your colour crème tube into the developer bottle and then squeezing. It in is so cool. It eliminates the element of aim (and some spillage) since you don't have to aim & squeeze to get it all into the tiny hole of the mixing bottle... like with other box dyes.
There is a lot of dye... It was more than enough to cover my shoulder length hair.
(I as trying the ombre effect on my hair and tried to apply a diluted mix to my roots which didn’t have much effect. But that was my experiment... and leaves me with more experimenting to do, and a tale for another day.)
The colouring time is only 20 minutes!! It cuts the usual time in half ... which saves me from sitting in a tiny towel on a freezing winter's ever for too long.
It is indeed non drip... runny enough to get through your hair easily but thick enough not to splatter everywhere.
May hair looks glossy and full and the royal jelly conditioner is so amazing I wish they would sell it separately. It smells so good and makes my hair shiny and pretty! ;-)
Things I love less....
I whish L'Oreal would bring out very vivid colours I mean like... COLOURS... Think, Dark PURPLE instead of brown-with-a purple-tone.
I wish they were cheaper! :-( I tend to gravitate towards the cheaper hair dyes these days and still get good results! It also allows me to experiment and change without breaking the bank.
The bottom line is however this: If money was no issue and they had the colour that tickled my fancy that week, I wont hesitate to buy this product again.
I really really liked working with it and its better than most of others out there in the same price bracket.
Before I start the review, I must apologise to the BB community and team for this review being sooo late. I was ill, hubby was ill and tons of work pressures.
Nevertheless, better late than never, thank you for giving me the opportunity to review this incredible product.
I have not dyed my hair in more than a year and wanted to try a vibrant, new, outrageous colour. A change is alwasy good.
Here is what I received in the pack from BB:
1 tube of no ammonia creme colourant
1 tube of developer
1 tip applicator
shine enhancing conditioner with royal jelly and
1 pair of professional cloves plus instruction leaflet.
Now, I must stress the importance of doing a skin allergy test before colouring hair. They really emphasize this on the instruction leaflet by applying the product to a place like behind your ear and leaving unwashed for 48 hours. If no reaction then, colour away! and....
never ever use the product to dye eyelashes or brows which I have seen some people do. This is a NO NO.
Change clothes; wear an old T-shirt or over coat that has been used. Make sure you have old towels on hand as well as lots and lots of newspapers to stand on and colour hair as the process can be quite messy. I remember the last time I coloured my hair, the bathroom was a huge mess that hubby nearly had a fit, so make sure you also clean up afterwards.
The instruction leaflet has clear guidelines on how to mix the colour by unscrewing the top of the developer tube, squeezing the colour into the tube and closing the tube with the applicator tip. Shake well before use!
Now I am bit of an amateur hair colourist so I followed the instructions to the T. There are 2 clear methods of colouring, either if hair is coloured or not coloured. My hair is already coloured so I followed the former approach. I wet my hair, slightly towel dried and started applying the colour at the roots after dividing hair into smaller sections. Wow, the product was cold and left a tingly feeling on my scalp. I massaged the colour into my scalp, waited 15 minutes before applying the mixture to the rest of the hair.
Once set, I washed off thoroughly and then applied some royal jelly conditioning on for 2 minutes.
and Voila, hair colouring done!
I just love my new colour, so rich, so vibrant, full of colour and full of life.
Mad about Mahogany.
Finally, there are some colour enhancing and protecting tips:
Always use a colour protect shampoo and conditioner.
I would like to thank the Beauty Bulletin team as well as L'Oreal for giving me the opportunity to review the product~
I do like the fact that there is no amonia in this product! It did come into contact with my clothes and washed out easily.On the box and in the pamphlet enclosed, this product promises to give you glossy and soft hair results after colour. However, after colouring my hair and in the weeks that followed, my hair was never glossy and not really soft. It came out a bit dry, even after using the enclosed conditioner.
I am very happy with the colour, it looks totally natural! I even received multiple compliments from people who have never seen me before saying that my hair colour is so beautiful (believing that it is natural)!
The instructions and the overall use of the product was very easy! I do appreciate the perforated part in the box that allows you to put the bottle in. It makes the whole process much easier. It also did not take me very long to do the colouring and I have quite long hair.
The pictures attached to this review shows my whole transformation. Overall I am very happy with the colour that came out, it does not look fake at all. The only thing that did bother me is how dry my hair was afterwards. It took about 3 weeks for my hair to return to normal again. I have curly hair and therefore need more moisture in my hair. I think this product takes most of that moisture out.
I must say, having tried other brands before, I am more satisfied by this one and will use it again. I will however just adjust my conditioning routine.
Firstly thank you to Beauty Bulletin for the opportunity to review, L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss.
I liked that the box can be used to help with the mixing process. This made mixing quick and easy, with no mess.
The tip applicator makes it easy to apply. I loved that the formula is non-drip.
Application was quick and easy with no mess… I absolutely loved the smell so fresh and fruity…
The conditioner also had a nice smell to it. It left my hair smelling fresh, soft and silky smooth.
My dull brown hair is gone.
After L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss. I’m left with soft and silky, smooth black hair.
If you want a good hair day (DYE)!!! Choose L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss…
I ‘m definitely getting me some more. L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss
The activator in the whitish bottle has an easy screw off cap that you snap off then you squeeze the colourant in and shake until colour is blended well.The next is to pop on your gloves and prepare your hair for the colourant by just dampening it,I used a spray bottle to lightly dampen the hair then applied my colourant.The creme is nice and thick but not at all goopy which made it really mess free and run free which meant I could carry on with what I was doing at home without a dripping mess and my bathroom was stain free for a change and for us girls who have no extra hands to help hold the bottle the box has a perforated section that you tear out then you can place your bottle colourant upright inside the box while you part your next section of hair.
I found the colour to be vibrant and shiny and it coverd those early sneaky greys.So all in all a great quality product that has thought of everything a women needs want in a hair colour with ingredients thag vitalise hour hair in every way possible.
