I just used this shade "9GR", and I'm VERY happy! It's exactly what I wanted, and looks soooo natural! I had about 1.5 inches of my natural dark blonde hair, with the rest being an overly highlighted pale blonde. I left this on for 25 minutes, and my roots and ends are even, BUT I have found the trick to getting even results on porous or previously colored hair, is to apply a leave in conditioner to the ends only, prior to coloring. The color is near the shade depicted on the box, a light golden strawberry/apricot blonde (think Nicole Kidman). The color isn't "flat" at all, it contains highs and lows. Also, my hair was quite damaged prior to coloring, and not only does it not feel more damaged, it's actually softer! This is my new fave color!

This color is much darker than expected

The older Loreal color 9RB is the perfect shade for my coloring. Please bring it back L

        not easy t apply but color is so lovely;
        my hair is natural blonde so it is going on easy;
        must know how t apply or must go to hair dresser to do so or u can end up with patches of new and old colors or nothing at all;
        when my hair got longer than shoulder length i choose to go to hair dresser but not fancy or i end up paying much more for salon than color itself so just a student like from our local hair dressers school can do the job for u just fine;
        color will start fading after 2 weeks but if u want this color to last for a month then just this low cost trick wont do coz usually this color can only be achieved in salon for at least $100 just for 1 visit;
        so cannot complain for getting amazing color for pennies;
        thanks L'Oreal

            My natural hair color is a dull shade of light brown. I always color it with L'Oreal Preference #LT Golden Reddish Blonde 9GR. 9GR lightens the brown and makes it both redder and blonder -- I end up with a gorgeous strawberry blonde color that looks both natural & flattering. NOTE: My hair is 6" below shoulder length -- I use TWO boxes of Preference every time I color it. I LOVE THIS HAIR COLOR!

              I am a natural Strawberry blonde. As us Blondie's know, natural color gets darker with age My "greys" are actually white so that helps to give "natural" highlights. I started having my hair weaved/color in my 40's. Great results and mucho $$$$!! I finally asked my sister about her hair color - Preference/L'Oreal. I used 8G for a long time with great results. I morphed into 9G which is also a great product. One day I accidentally saw the 9GR and realized that THAT is what I wanted -- my old strawberry blonde color. I thought that reds were very finicky to manage but this is a wonderful color. Yes, it does fade but not at all badly. My hair grows very fast so I touch-up every 4 (maybe 5) weeks. I wash my hair every 5 or 6 days. I also have very thick hair. Using the touch-up method and with my hair shoulder length, I can use just one box. (When my hair was longer, I needed 2 boxes.)

              Two things that I do -- I DO use shampoo (L'Oreal's) when I color. (How can you NOT? There is no way to get the smell out plus I do want clean hair.)

              The other thing I do is an ice-water rinse. I've done this for the longest time - my hair dressers all love that I do this. It keeps my hair clean longer and the huge plus is that it helps to keep the color longer. Try it!!

              I'm a natural redhead whose color has faded over time and in the last year or two got brave enough to try some of the home color products. I have been happy with the results overall and while I find Clairol Perfect 10 to be an excellent color product for redheads, the shades are very limited (only 3).
              I used the Loreal Color & Shine System,LT Golden Reddish Blonde 9GR to lighten it up for summer and found that the "reddish" was definitely stronger than the "blonde". The red tones in the color will pick up and enhance any reds that are already in your hair, but the highlights are a nice golden color. Bottom line: this is a good product that conditions your hair well, but if you are looking for a more sun-kissed or Strawberry blonde effect and have a lot of red in your hair already, I would suggest using one of the Golden Blonde shades to lighten to a more strawberry tone if that is your desired effect.

              I am natural redhead that has begun to gray (well white) prematurely. I was looking for a color that was close to my natural one and wouldn't be too harsh on my sensitive scalp. I have thick long hair, so I had to use two bottles. I was pleased with the overall shade, but it did not take to some of my white hair.... While that makes for some highlights I was hoping for better coverage on what I was trying to camouflage in the first place
              It also BURNED my scalp and made it flake. I would not use it again for that reason, but if you don't have a sensitive scalp, then I say it's worth trying.

                I absolutely love this shade by Loreal. I have been using it well over a year now and I don't see myself trying other red shades from any other hair color lines. My natural hair color is a medium brown and when I first went red, I went to a professional hair stylist to get it bleached (after not being happy with results from Color Oops -- caused my hair color to be severely uneven). I originally had them dye my hair the strawberry blonde shade from Revlon Colorsilk. I loved it at first, but slowly began to dislike it because it would fade extremely fast and when it did, my hair looked like the color of a banana -- very strange and not attractive. So I came on here and began my search for a new red shade. I came across this shade by Loreal and after reading the positive reviews, I thought, "I'm sold and I'm buying it." I had probably half an inch of growth when I dyed it for the first time using this shade. Fear of it coming out uneven (lighter and brighter on the roots and darker everywhere else) was definitely on my mind. But thankfully to my surprise it was completely even! It looked beautiful and I was immediately hooked. And I was also thankful that when it did fade, it was a very pleasant color -- no more banana! As of now (I only began doing this a couple of weeks ago), I only wash my hair twice a week -- instead of almost every day and I've noticed that my hair is much softer and the color is lasting so much more now (I dye my hair once every month to two months). Also, the new and improved conditioner that it comes with is the BEST conditioner I have ever used! I'm desperately waiting for Loreal to begin to sell it on its own -- crossing fingers.
                I receive compliments all the time and most people believe it is my natural hair color since I'm extremely pale and I dye my eyebrows this shade as well. So if you are thinking of going red but want it to look natural and not obvious (like those burgundy, almost purple reds), give this shade a try!

                  I have used Preference 9GR for over 20 years and my hair color always got compliments - even from hair colorists! However, I was hit with a huge cut in income so elected to go with a cheaper brand. It fried my hair. I will never change again. After only 1 use my hair looks great again.
