“Since when were chocolate brownies red?! ”

Written on: 25/04/2014 by Ashtyne10 (1 review written)

Bought the 'chocolate brownie' hair colour. Nowhere does it mention that it will turn your hair red! The image on the packet is a dark brown, which was what I wanted! Do not buy this if you want dark hair it makes you ginger as it fades and is horrible! Although the casting creme gloss in general makes your hair nice and shiny… Read Full Review

“Gothic Nightmare!!!”

Written on: 03/10/2013 by NuuNuu (1 review written)

I am a woman of 48 years old & I usually use LOreal Casting Creme Gloss twice a year to blend away greys without the harsh effects of ammonia & used it a week ago for my grey hairs & because my naturally light brown hair had gone a bit 'gingery' on the ends over the summer. OMG!!! I am devastated by the new formula: My waist length wavy hair with natural blonde highlights from living at the beach is ALMOST BLACK!!!!!!! I used the shade '600 Light Brown' which I have successfully used in the… Read Full Review

“Big disappointment ”

Written on: 01/09/2013 by emmaedwardsxo (1 review written)

I bought the Iced Cocoa Casting Creme gloss, which is a dark brown with purple tint. After I had finished dying and drying my hair, the end result was an almost black colour, which I was not intending on, but warmed to the colour. It's now been just over 2 weeks since I've dyed my hair and the colour has already washed out to the ore dyed colour! (I've washed my hair maybe 7 times) Extemely disappointed and not worth paying money for this product, wish I had read other reviews before… Read Full Review

“Worst dye I have ever used”

Written on: 14/08/2013 by andthenthey (1 review written)

I used two boxes of the shade chocolate on my long hair but it didn't take at all. My hair has gone a shade darker but its more red than brown. I left it on for the exact amout of time that the box said I should. My hair has gone very soft and silky but it smells awful. I would advise everyone not to buy this product and if you already have then I would take it straight back to the shop and get your money back. It was a complete waste of my time, money and effort… Read Full Review

I have used the hair colour for a good 5years and knew how to use it of by heart ,but today it was all changed and not for the better . The two bottles that screw together to mix the colour which was brilliant no slipping or mess was hopeless you now need more space and two hands and the bottle was cheap and nasty. And then the big one The gloves which I had to go and get scissors to get out of the stupid plastic bag guess what wouldn't even fit me and at this point I had to carry on with no… Read Full Review

“Worst hair dye ever!!”

Written on: 02/05/2013 by AngelaJane68 (1 review written)

Absolutely the worst hair dye I've ever had the misfortune to use, and I've used a few, considering I'm now in my forties and started going grey at 21! It left my hair dry and damaged, so much so that I struggled to gently comb through it afterwards. I don't think I've ever run so fast to get my hot oils! Despite people raving about how good the conditioner is, it was disgusting and smelt of cat's wee, I kid you not. Yuk! Other hair dye conditioners at least mask the damage done with their… Read Full Review

“Great even color!”

Written on: 01/05/2013

I've never had my hair dyed before, nor had I ever dyed it myself. But as I discovered more and more grey/white hairs at 25 (thanks mom!), mostly around my temples, I decided to try a DIY kit. I bought the L'oreal Casting Creme Gloss, as I didn't want a permanent hairdye, but with a color that was as close to my natural color as possible. I naturally have light to medium brown colored hair to about 10 cm past my shoulders, with a golden sort of shine. However, I didn't want to bring out this… Read Full Review

I think if you use a semi-permanent dark colour on blonde hair this often happens. A long time ago I tried the same and found my hair went through various shades of purple and then green whilst the product gradually washed out.
It takes longer for the colour to wash out of blond hair - it seems to be more porous and subtle differences in colour are more noticeable than on dark hair. Because of this, you could be left with a permanently changed colour which you would have to re-dye to a shade as close as possible to your natural one. If you still have this problem and the dye still hasn't come out, I would suggest using a semi-permanent to restore your hair to its natural colour and then seeing what the result is after about 8 washes. I would use a shade slightly darker and warmer than your natural colour and only leave the colour on for about 15 minutes if your hair has been coloured in the previous 3 months. If it has been longer than that since you coloured your hair, leave the new colour on for the usual 20-25minutes.
If this approach fails, you may need to resort to a visit to a salon to have your hair professionally changed back to it's original shade. Luckily, because Casting Creme Gloss is not ammonia-based, I think it's very unlikely to cause any damage to your hair, no matter how many times you use it, as long as you time the application of the product carefully.
I must point out that I am not an expert - just someone who has had the same unfortunate experience and this is how I solved the problem. Good luck!

I just don't understand why hair dyes at home bother giving each individual hair dye a different name! The brown dyes I use always just turn black!!! I used iced chocolate, and went 2 shades lighter than my own hair, left it on for 13 minutes instead of 20 In fear of turning black again! & shock horror it went black! I give up! … Read Full Review

“Great Hair Dye”

Written on: 11/12/2012

Having had a range of experiences with MANY hair dyes over the years i was really happy with the outcome of this product. My hair is naturally really dark brown so i used 'chocolate truffle'. My hair had a gorgeous shine afterwards and a very natural tone. Having fallen into the trap previously of buying a dark brown for my own hair, i was aware that this always equals black not matter what brand you use. Unfortunately for me in my experience the dye was permanent and not a semi like this dye… Read Full Review

“What a mistake!”

Written on: 06/12/2012

I have dyed light blonde hair in good condition, and chose the Iced Blonde (910) shade to do my roots and also to (hopefully) enhance my overall colour. First of all, the main Developer Cream bottle has a tapered bottom so you cannot set it down but have have to try and balance it between your knees to squeeze the metal Creme Colourant tube into it. Very difficult. Then the bottle's design also makes it extremely hard to hold and to squeeze out the mixture onto the hair. I have used… Read Full Review

I have now washed my hair and it looks a bit better. But it's more of a greeny-grey-blonde and NOT glossy in the least. And it doesn't look anything like the box.

“ LOreal Casting Creme Gloss Dark Brown 400, not as...”

Written on: 17/09/2012

My natural hair colour is dark brown, but I've got some grey so I thought I would try a semi permanent colour to rid myself of the grey. I picked LOreal Casting Creme Gloss in Dark Brown - shade 400. I followed the instructions on the box to the letter. I've not coloured, dyed or bleached my hair for nearly 15 years so my hair was natural as it were. The instructions were easy to follow but for me, the end result was shocking! I did do a strand test before I used the colour, the strand test… Read Full Review

“I followed the Instructions implicitly!”

Written on: 14/09/2012

I usually use L'Oreal Preference and loved using it for years. It's getting hard to find now so I bought L'Oreal Casting as I was told by the beauty shop this is replacement for Preference. But I was so disappointed with the colour and the coverage even though I'd been advised on the right colour to buy, read the leaflets twice and followed the instructions to the letter. Now I have to wait four weeks until I can re-colour my hair - but Idefinately won't be using CASTING again. Poor colour… Read Full Review
