I hardly ever take time to write reviews but after using several, and I mean SEVERAL, different brands, even the same brand of this product, but multiple various shades, etc. I finally found this one and it made my horribly brassy yellow blonde hair FINALLY back to normal, a nice natural non brassy more whiteish tone. I was so happy I could almost cry. And not only that, it did very little if any damage. It was so easy to use and only took 30 minutes total. I did leave it on probably maybe 35 minutes out of my own paranoia it wouldn't take because I have long hair and wanted to ensure the last parts that I did had enough time to develop, but it did work. I also did use their instructions as far as doing ends first, roots last. My roots were the worst, so I did them first, to let that color develop longer, and ends last, but to each their own. This product also comes with a nice end of hair strand creme that helps the color develop evenly, meaning your dry ends won't be lighter than the roots, which you use first and then apply the color. The product is overall fool-proof and beautiful once done. I did have light hair to begin with, however it was horribly yellow and this did the trick. I would highly HIGHLY recommend!

    My hair is a light brown naturally, but I've been dying it blonde for about 2 years. I usually go to a stylist and never complain. However, my stylist charges $200 for it and I thought I would try a cheaper alternative method. I'm realistic and I knew it wouldn't look as good when it's out of a box. But ORANGE? I did NOT expect my hair to be ORANGE. What the hell am I supposed to do now? Not to mention that about a third of my hair fell out in the process. I left it on for half an hour exactly like it said, and now I'm stuck with orange hair. I will never trust box dye again. I look like a freaking orangutan! Literally. That's the color of my hair now.
    TL;DR: Don't buy it unless orangutan is the look you're going for.

        Comments about L'Oreal Paris Excellence Blonde Supreme Creme Haircolor, Extra Light Ash Blonde 01, 1 ea:

        This dye did a great job on my hair. I used this as a "dye fix" after I used Feria's 110 Starlet. It turned my hair a very coppery/brassy dark blonde. I wasnt that dark to begin with(I am naturally a dark blonde) so I dont understand why it ruined my hair so bad. It was also very abrasive. When I was rinsing it felt matted to my head and I couldnt get a comb through it even after using their provided conditioner and my own deep conditioner. I had tons of split ends and I ended up cutting off 2". I would never use anything from the Feria line again. I did some research on how I could fix it and decided to try a toner. I went to [@] and they recommended I use Wella's T18 light ash blonde. That seemed to help but I was still dark brassy blonde. I was using purple shampoo and conditioner often also with no change! I was getting frustrated and decided I would need to try something with a high lift to go lighter or bleach. I did not want to use bleach! My hair was healthy but fine and thin and knew it couldn't withstand a bleaching. After giving my hair a break for 3 weeks I decided to give this a try. I used the cooler ash shade because I figured it would help counteract the brassiness in my hair as it lightened. I applied, left on for about 35 minutes and rinsed. What I felt while I was rinsing made me so happy I almost didnt care if I hadnt seen a change or not. My hair felt like silk and even softer after using their conditioner. It felt nicer than before I colored. I was so worried about this last try really killing my hair, but it did not do any damage at all. The pre conditioner probably helped too but I am gonna say for being a high lift color I expcted more dryness and tangles especially at the roots since I really laid it on thick there. No knots or dryness at all. Second day after dye, my hair is still really soft and glowing. As for the color fix, it did a wonderful job. It took my hair about two shades lighter and almost erased all the brass from the other dye. I did have some roots when I colored with this and everything came out beautiful and even. I will definitely be using this again and feel confident when I do I will be nearly the color on the box. if you are thinking about using bleach and your hair isnt darker than a light brown I would try this alternative first. It was super gentle on my hair, left me with little to no damage with a pretty, shiny blonde color that does not look fake. Another plus, I did not have to walk around for 2 weeks with deep conditioner sitting on my head for all the dryness, like I have had to with other hair dye!! I will be using excellence from now on.

          Very drying, as others have mentioned. The conditioner is not great. And it turned parts of my hair greenish/charcoal, orange, yellow and blonde, very weird. (I've been dying my hair for decades.) Very poor quality all around.

              This color covers gray better than any other I've used. The only possible con is that is looks almost too good for an older woman. I can live with that. The color is superb.

                This is a gentle colorant (unlike 10BB beige blond) and the color is gorgeous. It is a "young" color, and if you look old it may not look natural for that reason. If you look under 70, it will work. It covers very well (unlike 10BB beige blond, which does not hide gray well). It makes for a youthful, very-much-a-blond look.

                Before I dyed my hair it was dark blonde with medium brown roots. I wanted a hair dye that wouldn't turn my hair brassy or orange, and lightened it to a medium blonde, so I used this one. The color didn't turn out anything like the swatches on the box. Instead it was basically the same, a little lighter, and my roots are slightly orange but match the rest of my hair better than before. I like the color but it's not exactly what I wanted.. at all.....still I wasn't too disappointed with the results.

                  I like the brand because it seems to be the healthiest on my dry color-treated hair. I did not like this color because it gave my hair a purple tint afterwards. It only lasted until the 2nd wash and the tint washed out but then the blond color started to fade really quick too.

                    First of all, I have to say my hair is naturally a "dishwater blonde" with a lot of gray in it, and it has always taken color VERY EASILY, especially with the Loreal hair colors (Clairol has always turned my hair brassy each time I've tried it so I don't even think about buying it anymore) -- with the Loreal hair colors, my hair comes out looking very similar to the photos on the box. I've never had to have my hair professionally colored because it's so easy to do it myself. This color is my FAVORITE, my hair comes out looking more slivery blond than the picture on the box with absolutely NO brassiness or yellow in it at all -- it's a very soft shade and reminds me of a baby blonde -- my hair comes out feeling very soft and silky, too. This is a GREAT color and I'm ordering it online because I can NEVER find it at my local stores, it's always sold out!!

                      I used this product for several years. I have a great deal of red in the undertone of my dark blonde hair. The first time that you use this, yes, your hair will have some red in it and will not be as light as on the box. HOWEVER, if you use it again four weeks later, your hair will turn out the right color, as pictured on the box.
