4.0 out of 5 stars Loreal Healthy Look Haircolor, September 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Healthy Look Cool Chestnut Brown, Iced Chocolate (Health and Beauty)
I use this haircolor in the chestnut brown/iced chocolate color. I have been coloring my hair close to 10 years and previously my brand was Clairol's Nice and Easy. I got a coupon for this new line of haircolor, so I tried it out. Like many users on here, the first time I used the haircolor, I followed the instructions, applied it, and waited 10 minutes until rinsing it out. My hair, too, turned out almost black, I was shocked. I found out that I was leaving it on too long for my hair. My hairstylist told me that since I color my hair regularly, my hair is more porous and can easily become over-saturated with color.

Anyway, the next time I dyed my hair with this product, I first applied it to my roots and then combed it through to the ends of my hair. Since this haircolor works so fast, 10 minutes, I included application time into the total processing time. It takes me about 5 minutes to apply the haircolor, then I start warming up the shower to rinse it out, taking about another 3-5 minutes. My hair now turns out just like the color on the box. Because this haircolor works so fast, it may be easy to leave it on too long and oversaturate your hair. If this happens, try leaving it on less time the next time you color your hair until you find the time that works for your hair texture.

This is now my haircolor of choice and I just subscribed for auto-delivery. The color fades naturally over about 6 weeks for me, and this gradual fading makes my roots less noticeable. My hair is also shinier and more manageable than it was when I was using permanent hair dye. With the permanent hair dye, I was still coloring about every 6 weeks because my roots ( I have naturally dirty blonde hair) would really stand out against the brunette color. So I'm coloriong my hair as regularly as with a permanent dye, but I've found the semi-permanent dye looks more natural. The processing time may take some adjusting since everyone's hair is different, I don't keep the dye in for the whole ten minutes. Because of this, though, that's why I'm only giving this product four stars. If you do end up with darker hair, remember this is semi-permanent, so try shampooing a few times to wash some of it out. Thats what helped me the first time I used this product and ended up with black hair. I have a bob haircut that falls just below my chin, and I use about 3/4 of a bottle to coat all my hair. I bought a reusale hairdye bottle, so I can mix less product and save the extra for touch-ups. If you have long or really thick hair you will probably need 2 boxes.

Hope that helps!
