It scared me at first! I looked at it after I did it an hour later and I thought I ruined my hair with only a bit of it colored but the next day I looked and although it still smells very chemically although I washed it out and even used the conditioner the new color showed up more and more in my hair so dont freak out if you dont see it immediately. Now this overall for my dark brown hair only really brang it up maybe 2 tint colors. I was so happy with having long hair I was able to just use one bottle even had what I though was extra but sadly I did miss a few places although I though I was through. I suggest to really comb it out or into your usual part and make sure you really put the color on the back of the hair you did and especially in the front with the baby hairs. I missed a part and i can see my darker color in my hair in a few places. I really like this new color to my hair because It didnt change my hair dramatically. I though I wanted it o dramatically change but sense this is my first time and I wasn't really suppose to change it; it had so little effect that only I would probably notice it unless I mentioned it to someone. I fell like it might continue to come out over this next week even more so I am excited to see what it FULLY looks likes although I already happy with these results. It was very fun to do this and left my hair with a chestnut brown color than my dark brown. My hair is kinda thick to but anyhow it was an awakening when I though I really messed up my hair at first due to SO much color making my hair look almost blonde at fist but when I woke up I was very happy to see it only change a bit. Really get the brush that spreads out the color into the cracks I PROMISE you WILL MISS if you dont use a that kind of styling brush to distribute the color. Its cheap just get it at the store with the dye. The end thanks for reading.

I have very very dark asian hair. I was aiming to dye my hair a light ash brown. This hair dye is supposed to specialize in lifting black hair. It didn't do ANYTHING! There is even an example shown at the top of the box what your natural black hair would look like after applying the dye. I applied the color to my hair and waited for an hour, and my hair looks exactly the same-pure black. Also it smells horrible. DO NOT BUY THIS HAIR DYE!!!!

          I really like this product. People say that its runny and it is, but I feel that this helps to distribute it on the scalp much better.

          I've noticed that the gloves are now the flat plastic kind with the seams rather than the professional gloves.

          The conditioner is amazing as usual. I use it as a leave-in rather than rinse out. Conditions better and I can use much less.

          I won't be purchasing this again as it simply does not cover gray. I love the color, but even leaving it on for 40 minutes I still can see gray hair. Doesnt work for me

            Comments about L'Oreal Paris Feria Hi-Lift Browns, Downtown Brown B61, 1 ea:

            I really love this product.

            I have medium brown hair with some gray in it. This colors my hair a dirty blonde color that I really like, and my gray is a pretty silver color. I've gotten many compliments since I've been using this product. Coloring my hair makes my hair seem thicker too since it's gotten finer as I've gotten older.

            I had been coloring my hair a medium brown when I applied Downtown Brown the first time, and it worked for me. I've been using it ever since. I leave the product on my hair the amount of time given on the package directions. Prior to using this product, every time I had tried to go blonde, I ended up with orange toned hair at my roots.

            With this color, I also use Clairol shimmer lights to make the color look even better. As long as I decide to stay blonde, I will use this hair color.

            About highlights, however, I had highlights in my hair when I first started using it, & it turned those a little purplish (since it has a violet base in it to counteract brassiness), but not too worry, it washes out in a shampoo or two.

              this is the best product and color that I have ever found for my hair. I have been looking for a very light shade of brown for years buti my colored hair takes very dark so I never ended up with what I wanted. This color came out exactly as it was shown on the box.. I am a very happy customer and I will definitely recommend this to others.

                I have always played with coloring my hair, but now as a mommy to a toddler, I wanted to actually look like she was mine. In trying to get back to my natural light ash brown, I have had too much brassiness appear. I tried this in hopes that it would cover the few grays, bring me back closer to my natural shade, and reduce the brassiness. I have now used this twice and I love it. The only reason I took a star away, was because it seems like the anti-brassiness doesn't last until the next coloring. I only wash my hair twice a week, use a color protection shampoo, and still start to see a little brassiness closer to my coloring time. But, nonetheless, I love it, will keep using it. The conditioner that it provides sucks though. I have used other coloring kits from L'Oreal and felt like those conditioners were better. I still felt like I needed to condition my hair after using it.

                Most of the reviewers who gave this product negative reviews got a negative result for specific reasons that I can explain:
                1) Yes, the product has a heavy COOL toner in it. This toner has blue/gray/purple undertones designed to elmininate the red that some of us want to be rid of. If you DON'T have red understones, or if you have blonde in your hair or a LOT of gray, those COOL tones will show as blue/gray/purple in your hair. Use a product that is described as NEUTRAL or WARM if that is the case.
                2) This product is high-lift, not designed for use on hair that isn't very dark. If your hair is medium brown or lighter, do not use a high-lift product.
                3) Some reviewers said that this product did NOTHING. I don't see how that's possible, but perhaps on extremely black hair it's just not enough peroxide. In that case, you might buy a bleaching kit AND this product. I have very dark hair with a lot of gray streaks. I had to bleach my hair first (which made it orange) and then I added this product. I then had a cool, ashy light brown. The lightest streaks in my hair did have a gray/purple cast to them which washed out in a few days.

                Having written all of that, I have paid many hundreds of dollars for salon color, and yet have never left a salon with a color that I loved. This color is perfect (for me). I wanted something light but NO brass, and with natural-looking highlights. I will never go back to a salon again. My roots grow in so quickly, and I can cover them in 40 minutes at home (I do leave it in 10 mins extra for the stubborn grays).

                The conditioner it comes with is mediocre. I use it, but then I massage a little raw shea butter into the ends of my hair to moisturize them. I blow dry and then - while hair is warm - use a little macadamia or argan oil (or more shea butter) to moisturize again. If it's humid out, John Frieda Frizz Ease "Secret Weapon" is great. I keep it in the car for emergencies.

                    It was a huge disappontment for us to end up with purple hair. Too hard on hair/scalp to redye immediately. How embarrassing! By the way, followed directions. Bad batch perhaps.
