Excellence - 8.1 Natural Ash Blonde
I think L'oreal is the best for home hair colour. Leaves the hair in great condition and is gentle on the scalp. However, if like me you are a typical British mousey blonde/light brown with a reddish base colour, colouring at home is a nightmare because even though your hair is fairish, it just won't go blonde, just goes brassy! You can get a blonde colour you're satisfied with eventually but it will take you a lot of experimentation and money, not to mention poor hair condition after all the dye. This was a second attempt at home in 3 months (have short hair and colour was mostly cut out) and done as a strand test which just turned orange, so forget messing about, it's off to the hairdressers for me, even though I only want to go a shade lighter. All those people who went dark or blue/green/grey with L'oreal ash shades must have had pre-coloured/bleached hair as it certainly wasn't the case for me on natural fairish hair. Great colour in general L'oreal, but when is someone going to cater for British mousey blondes who want to go a shade or two lighter without the brass? You'd be on to a winner if you catered for us!

I purchased this produce as I wanted to cover up greys. I chose ash blonde as my natural colour is dark blonde/light brown and I have like an ash blonde in the past. I applied the colour as instructed on the packaging and left the dye on for the recommended developing time for natural hair(As my hair colour was natural). I was completely surprised to find my hair colour is now a dark strawberry blonde!? I could not be more dis-satisfied with this produced and am extremely unhappy that I now have to dye my hair a second time to rectify this. I would not recommend this product.
