          Comments about L'Oreal Paris Preference Fade Defying Color & Shine System, Permanent, Medium Ash Brown 5A, 1 ea:

          I thought I liked this better than Excellence at first, because the medium ash brown color looked far less flat, letting some dimension shine through and not looking like I had black shoe polish on my hair as sometimes can happen with the Excellence medium brown haircolors. It even noticeably softened my hair at first much better than the Excellence.

          However I could see as I was applying it to my temples quite heavily where I am most gray, it wasn't covering. After styling, I could see the temples didn't take too much of the color. About ten days later, here I am with disgusting grays poking out everywhere. With Excellence at least I was getting two or up to three solid weeks. I thought the conditioner was also more effective than Excellence. But overall, if you have aging hair and resistant grays, and you don't like a gel-like formula that kind can splash everywhere, I can't imagine you will be happy with this. Going to either revert to Excellence or try the beauty store brand of these L'Oreal shades which my stylist suggested might actually last longer.

              I swim a few times a week and this color (Medium Ash Brown) does not turn my hair red.

                I've used this for years! It is the best natural looking brunette shade I feel is out there on the market.

                This shade of brown also matches all those synethic brown hair pieces, and accessories, which I own a lot of as well. So, I will stick with this shade as long as it's available.

                This also conditions my hair very well. And, it does cover the grey (although I'm not really really gray yet ;) )

                Because I have long, thick hair, I use two boxes per treatment.

                I find it easy to use also.

                Buy Clairol Balsam 610 instead.

                      Used this L'Oreal product for 20+ years to cover gray. Big mistake. Buy Clairol Balsam "Medium Ash Brown"; does not stain sink, towels; costs 60% less [$]; color is much more natural (not purple black like this L'oreal product).
