So, today is the big 3-3 Birthday for me! And what better to celebrate with than a new experience. Confession: I have virgin hair. Never been colored, ever. And frankly, I’m enjoying not having the extra load on my pocketbook. But that doesn’t mean I couldn’t use a little change every now and then. And I know I was massively in need for some conditioning on my dry ends. So when I had the chance to try L’Oréal Paris Healthy Look Crème Gloss Color, it was a no-brainer.
L’Oréal Paris Healthy Look Crème Gloss Color is designed to take natural hair color up a notch. It is no-ammonia hair color that lasts through 28 shampoos. It can blend away grays and since it isn’t a permanent color, you don’t have to worry about roots. I used shade 6BB and my hair came out shinier, slightly darker and massively conditioned.
The process of the color was easier than I expected. You mix a little bottle, activating the color. I used every ounce to cover my very long hair. The nozzle on the bottle allowed me to get in every nook and cranny. The formula didn’t drip anywhere, although I would suggest wearing a shirt that can handle a little stain. The color stays on your head for 10 minutes then it is off to the shower. As you rinse, color is everywhere. I was a bit concerned, but it simply washed away. It took a good couple of minutes of rinsing to get all the color out. Then, I applied the included conditioner. This time, you are allowed to use conditioner on your scalp (normally stick to just your ends). This stuff is a real treat and left my hair uber-soft. Rinse again and you are done! I had no color transfer to my towels or sheets. This was literally a mess-free process.
