“Interesting Shade - Same Results”

Written on: 13/10/2013 by beautybear (49 reviews written)

This is my review of L'Oreal® Superior PREFERENCE® #9DG (Light Delicate Golden Blonde). I have used this brand many times and have used several shades (Mostly Blondes). The kit is the same as last time I used it EXCEPT: there is more product (2.4 oz. Color Gel + 2.4 oz. Developing Creme) for a total of nearly 5 oz. when mixed. This is very good as long or thick hair usually requires the purchase of two kits for sufficient coverage so this should cover most people with one kit. They… Read Full Review

“Not rubbish, but not the best.”

Written on: 13/08/2011 by ldingsdale92 (4 reviews written)

Ok, Loreal is quite renowned for it's hair products and cosmetics so I thought i'd give colour preference a try. I saw Gwen Stefani on the advertisements and i love her hair colour so decided to buy a box of it. Went for beige blonde colour. Don't get me wrong, the colour did turn out what it showed on the box, which is always a bonus, but i was dissapointed in a way having paid £7 and finding out that it's no better than hair dyes at the lower end of the market such as Clairol and Garnier.I… Read Full Review

“Messy, leaves hair greasy”

Written on: 10/07/2011

I used the Starry Night Blue/Black shade of this hair colour to top up the roots of my hair as I had already had my hair dyed blue/black at the hair salon but did not want to pay salon prices for just a top up. Ok, the price was good, just over £5 if I remember correctly but the dye was SO messy. It's difficult to put on (if you can find someone to help you that would be a good idea), the product is highly perfumed and so if you have asthma or suffer from allergies to strong scents then this… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2011 by sandiandree (1 review written)

I'm naturally a light medium ash brown colour and have been trying for longer than I can remember to find the perfect colour.....This is it! No brassy red or orange tones but a few pearly beige tones that look as though I have paid an arm and a leg for highlights/lowlights. I'm so thrilled. Thankyou Loreal!!!! :O)… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2011 by mimilou76 (2 reviews written)

After a lot of thought I decided to go from a medium blonde to a red using L'oreal Recital 6.66 Babylon Intense Red. I bought 2 packets of the colour,costing £6 ish each, knowing as an ex hairdresser that the colour may not take on the ends. Used the first colour, washed it off and dried it roughly and my ends were a light pink so decided to put the other box of colour over the top just on the ends and leave it for a little longer. Washed the 2nd lot off and dried it again and the colour had… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

i have short blonde hair and decided to dye my hair red. i used this product and after leaving on for the reccomended time i then washed it off to find only my roots had been done and the rest of the hair was a salmon pink. i then went and bought a further dye just for the ends and even though it was darker it still had not worked. 6 dyes later my hair was the correct shade however then it washed out after 2 washes causing me to give up and spend £50 at a prfessional salon. at £7 a packet it… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2010 by Tinkerbellla (1 review written)

I used 6.3 Ultra Lightening Golden Brown. My hair has never been dyed before and it was naturally a medium brown. I wanted a golden colour to my hair so got this. On the box it does say that it won't make your hair orange.

This turned my hair ORANGE!! It looked like orangutan ORANGE! I knew that to get rid of orange you need to apply an ash colour. Well I was too scared to use an ash colour from this range, so I used 'Nice N Easy' semi perm colour in 75 Light ash brown. I did call the Nice n… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2010

I've used this once about a month ago and will never use it again! The colour faded out streak by streak and my hair is now half brown/half dull red. It looks awful, it's very damaged and feels awful. I've coloured my hair with every product under the sun dozens of times and never had this extreme a result! Steer clear and do not be fooled by the packets promises of vibrant lasting colour! This product should be banned!… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/12/2008

LOreal Recital Preference is advertised as being the most long lasting colour on the market, and is said to last up to six weeks and still be as vibrant as it was in the first wash. this hair colour turned out to be the most short-lasting dye I have ever used. the colour was not anything like the colour advertised on the front of the box, and I have blonde hair; so having dark hair was not a factor. the colour turned out to be about three shades darker than the fiery bright red I had wanted… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2008

While I still think Loreal makes good hair products in natural shades, I would not purchase any of their bright red shades again. Like another reviewer experienced, the hair colouring was almost entirely gone after 1 week. I have used Loreal hair colouring before in other shades and never had this problem. I expected a bright red shade to fade more noticeably that more natural shades, however I did expect a product labelled as long lasting and sold as permanent dye to last far longer than 1… Read Full Review

My boyfriend convinced me i should go red, we search and searched for the right colour for me. I finaly found the L'oreal Paris Recital Preference the colour i used was the Seville 6.64 a vibrant red, to my horror it came out very very dark and now i look like an idiot, it looks soooo cheap i hate it, i love the casting creme so i thought this would be perfect but NO. would definatly not recomend this because the colour you buy isnt the one that comes out even if you follow the instructions… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/09/2007 by szlwson (4 reviews written)

I had been using the natural blonde L'Oreal Recital Preference colour for years, without any problems. The blonde colours have always been the best, and my hair condition wasn't damaged. I noticed the box design had changed, and I assumed the product was the same. I've never been allergic to anything in my life, but for some reason, after using Preference hair dye last time, I had a rash all down my neck. I've used other dyes since without any rash, and all permanent hair dyes contain the same… Read Full Review

“The colour, a bright vibrant red, was very dark, and...”

Written on: 19/06/2007 by Persephone300 (2 reviews written)

The colour, a bright vibrant red, was very dark, and not at all like it should have been according to the side of the L'Oreal Recital Preference hair colour packet. Also, it can only be described as a wash in and out, because as soon as I had washed my hair, it looked like I had bathed in a pool of blood. It's now been about a week, and it doesn't really look like I've coloured it at all.

It is very disappointing for a well known make. Not good value for money, and my hair feels damaged, and… Read Full Review
