During our #AtHome livestream with Jonathan Colombini—L’Oréal Paris expert and Los Angeles-based celebrity hair colorist—viewers shared their questions about dyeing your hair at home. Sound like something you could stand to know more about? Read on for answers to some of the most popular hair coloring questions we received.
“My hair is 100% white. I've used L’Oréal Superior Preference in 9G Light Golden Blonde in the past, but my hair gets so dry, even with using L’Oréal’s Elvive line. What else can you recommend?”
L’Oréal’s answer: Try using L’Oréal Excellence Créme. Nothing protects or covers grays better. The triple protection system protects before, during, and after coloring. Our exclusive Pro-Keratine complex helps protect hair box after box!
“My hair is all white and I use Superior Preference in 8 Medium Blonde or 9G Light Golden Blonde. I also occasionally use root touch-up. Is there a way to get better gray coverage?”
L’Oréal’s answer: If you are looking for better gray coverage, try using Excellence. Nothing protects or covers grays better and it has 100% gray coverage—even on stubborn grays.
“I am interested in something to color my roots, but am looking for an option that is ammonia-free and is not a permanent color so I don’t affect my highlights and current hair color.”
L’Oréal’s answer: Try our temporary Magic Root Cover Up Spray. No ammonia and such a quick application process. It washes out in one wash, so your highlights are safe!
“I have straight hair and less than 30 percent of it is white. What would you recommend for gray coverage without sacrificing shiny hair?”
L’Oréal’s answer: If gray coverage is your main goal, we would suggest using Excellence. If gray coverage is not your primary concern and you want luminous, fade-defying color, try using Preference.
