Comments about L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Haircolor, Medium Brown 5, 1 ea:

I USED NATURTINT BEFORE, BECAUSE IT WAS SAID TO HAVE ALL THE NATURAL GOODNESS WITHOUT HARSH ELEMENTS SUCH AS: AMMONIA, PARABENS AND SUCH... BUT LAST TIME I USED IT IT IRRITATED MY SCALP HORRIBLY AND DIDN'T COVER GRAY WELL, AT ALL. GAVE ME RED SPOTS ON MY FACE CLOSE TO EARS. IT'S EXPENSIVE, AND NOT ALL THAT HARMLESS.

NOW THAT I AM BACK TO L'OREAL, I'LL JUST USE IT WITH COMMON SENSE: I HAVE A VERY SHORT WITH 40 % GRAY HAIR. SO I'LL USE ABOUT 1/2 BOTTLE OF THE MIX AND WILL HOLD IT FOR 30 MIN MAXIMUM,BECAUSE TODAY I USED 3/4 OF THE BOTTLE AND HELD IT FOR 40 MIN AND MY HEAD OF HAIR TURNED OUT BLACK ! SO I'VE LEARNED MY LESSON.

Color Too Dark

    Comments about L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Haircolor, Medium Brown 5, 1 ea:

    I bought this color to try to get the red out of my hair. My natural color is a light ash brown, but when I purchase hair dyes that say "golden" I end up with a lot of red in my hair. So, I decided to buy a neutral (not ashy and not golden) color in the hopes that it would not turn red on me. When I first applied the color my hair turned out dramatically darker then the picture on the box. It was dark brown with very few highlights. On the plus side, however, there was no red. After a week, the color seemed to mellow a bit and some medium brown highlights started to show. Now in the third week, however, the color is fading more and I'm starting to see the red again.

    This product was gentle on my hair, very easy to use, and inexpensive. It also didn't smell that bad. However, I will not be purchasing it again. I was not impressed with the color - it was too dark and was flat compared to the results I've gotten from other hair dyes.

    The old formula was perfect. This new formula has too much red in it. If you wash your hair everyday, you'll only get about 2 weeks of good color, then the red shows up.

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Haircolor, Medium Brown 5, 1 ea:

      I used this product and I expected it to be the color on the bottle, but it turned out to be the completely wrong color! It was darker than the bottom color said it would be when I dyed it. All in all, I was very disappointed in this product because the color was much too dark to be medium brown. The good thing about this product was that it was somewhat inexpensive and easy to use. However, I was a little bit disappointed at how dark it turned out to be!

        My hair is very long, so I use (2) bottles. The medium brown is too dark, so I mix it with the Medium Golden Brown. The color comes out perfect.

        I interchange this with the colorspa medium brown. The conditioner is so nice - I was they sold this separately.

          This haircolor is beautiful! If using it on previous colored hair, it will, like all haircolor, turn out darker. Mine turned a rich, dark brown. I get so many compliments!

            If you have stubborn graying darkish brown hair, the light brown will be orangy and the dark, almost black. Mixing the two didn't work well. Still orangy. However, I gave it four stars because it still is the only dye you can use at home that actually covers gray and doesn't fade. Just takes time to find what color is best for you. And, its very gentle on the hair. I wish it had more tonal qualities....different shades within the shade.
