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

I had a coupon for a significant portion off of Preference and decided to give it a go. Even though I've been coloring my hair at home for years, I hadn't used Preference before, partly due to its higher price, and partly due to the Feria Fiasco of 2001 which turned me off to L'Oreal for a number of years.

I must say, I am very impressed with the initial results. The color is very true to the box, and it is very, very shiny. Much shinier and more natural looking results than I'm accustomed to seeing on freshly-dyed hair. I've got little glints of warm brown in amidst the shiny neutral brown, giving it dimension.

The application, on dry hair, was a bit messy. This is a gel rather than a liquid or a cream, and it is a bit runny, kind of like jello that's been sitting out too long. However, I also found it much easier to section my hair because the gel would render it such a texture that I could easily just twist it out of the way to grab a fresh hank of hair. It was like playing shampoo mohawk in the shower, except I had to be careful not to splatter gel on the bathroom tiles.

Time will tell whether or not this color really is as fade resistant as the packaging claims. So far, only Revlon has been able to color my grays completely until my roots grow in. If this product can match that performance, then I'm going to repurchase. 'Cause doggone it, I *am* worth it.

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

I had to comment on this product. I have never colored my hair myself. I have always went to the salon. A couple of months ago, I had all over highlights and lowlights done. They ranged from blonde to dark brown. I got tired of looking at them and also a little gray was showing on my roots. I was low on money and time so I took the risk and I am so glad I did. The medium brown looks so shiny and natural! I l like it better than the salon color I get. If anyone has any doubts about this and you range from dark blond to dark brown, have no fear! It was a bit messy is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. But it comes out so shiny and soft. I love it!

    I have been coloring my hair for 30 years now and this is one of the worse products I have ever used. It's messy, runs everywhere and ruined my under garments. On top of that, where it touched my skin on my face, it cause welts, and the next day these areas looked like I had burned my skin. I trusted the L'oreal name but was very disappointed. Do not waste your money on this product.

    I had my hair streaked blond 3 months ago and yesterday decided to go natural again. I used L'Oreal Brown #5, and I love it!!! My hair feels so healthy, and has never been so shiny! I am really impressed.
