  • L'Oreal Paris Healthy Look Creme Gloss Color

    I am in my late 50s so have all kinds of issues with greying hair. The hair on the sides of my face is nearly white. The back of my hair is still light brown with a signifiicant "salting" of grey. The top layer of hair is somewhere in between. I don't want to use a permanent color because of the "white roots". I had highlights put in the top layer to try to blend with the lighter side hair but I ended up with just a mixture of colors that did not seem pleasing to me and my ashy colored roots just added to the muddle. I'd been using Natural Instincts 3G Blonde to try to blend the colors. It has a lot of yellow in it and just barely colored the lightest strands of hair. I wanted to find a little bit darker and more "neutral/cool" blonde but there was no good "in between" color that did not have "gold" in the Natural Instincts line so I decided to switch brands this time. I selected Healthy Look Medium Blonde 8. If I had done more research (which I did afterward) I probably would have started with their 81/2 color (it's lighter) but I am pleased with the result nonetheless. The color is darker and more ash than the color on the box but for me it worked really well to blend all the different colors I had going on. The color is a nice neutral blonde. All the red and gold tones are gone (big yahoo) and the front/top blends nicely with the darker back hair I have while still allowing the highlights to show through. My hair is nice and soft. I found it a bit easier to apply than Natural Instincts creme color (it moved through the hair better) but agree with other reviewers that the smell of the product and conditioner is not as nice as the Clairol product. I will probably not use the conditioner in the future but keep using the Loreal color protecting conditioner I typically use. I am a convert and will buy/use this again!
