L’Oreal Healthy Look Creme Gloss Review

I so wanted to like L’Oreal’s Healthy Look Creme Gloss Review.  The box said that the colour would take only 10 minutes to do and I’m such a sucker for anything that says it’ll make my hair shinier.  The product has “gloss” in its name!  How could it be bad?!

But it was.  I realized too late that this is one of those hair colourants that washes out in 28 washes, which is a little over a month. What that means is that it’s a semi-permanent colour and that means that it won’t cover all grays.  The box says that it just “blends” away gray, which just means that it’ll cover some of it, and leave some of it.

Obviously, that doesn’t work for me.  It’s nice that some of my gray hair got covered because I can hide most of it anyway, but my roots were still showing which is not good.

I’ve found that using this type of product really works if you’re planning on using it all the time.  If you’re fine with colouring your hair at least once a month, and so you can layer dye over dye so that your grays are blended out totally, then this will work for you.  It’s also great if you have light hair and want to know what you’ll look like if you go a shade darker.  You don’t have to commit to the colour, and if you really don’t like it, just use a volumizing or build-up removing shampoo every day, and you should be done with the colour in no time.

And for the record, this did give my hair great shine, but it wasn’t enough to make me use this again.

For most people, who want to colour their hair to cover gray or to get one single shade of hair, this isn’t the product to use.  My favourite kind remains Clairol’s Perfect 10 which gives you full coverage in just 10 minutes.

    This product is terrible. I have never seen a worse hair color product. The color you get is much darker than what is advertised and instead of Light Auburn, I ended up with black hair. I would never recommend this as it does not do what it claims to.

    I would not recommend this product, as it stained my hair. I used this actual colour, 4AR, and it turned my hair BLACK. So black, that it looked blue for the first couple of days. It faded pretty fast, and evened out to the pretty auburn on the box, but it wound up staining my hair. It’s been a year and a half since I coloured it, and I’m still growing the red out.

    I’ve never used permanent hair colour before, due to never wanting to permanently alter my hair colour, and have to be committed to colouring it all of the time. I’m a natural dirty blonde, and have used Clairol’s Natural Instincts Cinnamon Stick 20B or Hazelnut 18 several times in the past. While the pigments doesn’t last much longer than 2wks before fading rapidly, it had never stained my hair and within 2mths, all trace of colour was always gone. It was perfect for just a quick change when the mood hit me, and I didn’t have to worry about it ruining my natural hair.

    L’Oreal’s Healthy Look, although it says “semi-permanent” on the box, it’s kind of not so much. Not recommended for those who want a non-permanent colour change.

    I love this hair color. The fact that it doesn’t have peroxide in it is even better. The color doesn’t last as long as the others but it is a nice color. I would recommend this product. When choosing a color, go one lighter than the sample. That way you should make a pretty good match, unless you want it a little darker.
