Hi Heidi What In Your Opinion Would Be The Most


Hi Heidi
What in your opinion would be the most “kindest” commercial hair care colour on our supermarket shelves. I always have a battle choosing a product that will not be harsh on my hair.

Hello Eunica,

My recommendation is going to be based on what you want to achieve with your haircolor. If you dont wish to lighten the natural color in any way, and have little or no grey, the product range that I would recommend is Casting Creme Gloss.

An innovative formulation for a colourant that gives a healthy looking glow – without ammonia. How does it work?

Casting Crème Gloss is a hair colourant without ammonia that offers both optimal coverage of first greys as well as rich & super-glossy reflects.
 Casting Crème Gloss is L’Oreal’s latest generation of ammonia-free non-permanent hair colour; it has the benefit on an innovative technology which:
– blends away greys
– gives a shimmering, rich & luscious colour result.
– a super glossy shine.
– colour that lasts up to 28 shampoos.

Intense conditioning: hair feels beautifully soft and voluptuous
Casting Crème Gloss is a non-drip crème formula which is enriched with a patented conditioning complex. This helps to protect the hair fibre inside & out for satin soft hair. After colouring the new conditioner enriched with Royal Jelly leaves colour looking revitalised with a glossy shine.

Should you wish to choose a shade one or two levels lighter that your own natural hair color, or cover grey hair, I would recommend Excellence Creme by L’Oreal.

Our only triple protection haircolour that gives 100 % grey coverage and long- lasting colour with the outmost care.

Excellence Crème with Pro-Keratin

Over time your hair loses vitality and your colour loses radiance. New Excellence Crème by L’Oreal, our first non-drip conditioning formula enriched with Pro Keratin, helps replenish hair and rejuvenate colour. Hair feels healthy, silky and soft.
