My Experience with Loreal Paris Excellence Creme Hair Color 4.3 Gold Caramel

As I have told you all that I have never colored my hair before so I was a bit apprehensive about trying a new hair color, also I didn’t want to change my looks completely. I was also apprehensive about having hair fall issues after using a hair color but I gathered all my courage and finally took the plunge of coloring my hair. I wanted to color my hair to a light brown shade but eventually settled for this shade as it looked different on the box as well as on the shade chart too. It is supposed to be a shade of caramel which reflects gold color when exposed to sunlight; this is exactly how it looked in the shade card. I colored my hair and kept is for good 30 minutes after which I washed it off. To my surprise I did not feel any change at all after my hair got dried it was only after I click the pictures that I noticed my hair became a bit dark after coloring.

I have heard that a hair color shows only after a few washes so I kept calm and waited for a few weeks for the hair color to show. Honestly saying there isn’t much difference in my hair before and after hair. I have naturally brown hair. The difference is visible only in the pictures but not otherwise. So I am a bit disappointed that nobody noticed my hair color. However I am extremely happy that the condition of my hair got improved after using this hair color. My hair became more silky and shiny. There isn’t any hair fall or other hair issues. The conditioner is good and adds shine to the hair. The hair color does not smells bad or chemically strong. The hair color is easy to use at home and comes with a pair of gloves, instruction sheet, a comb applicator which is super convenient to use and a pre color care serum.

To sum up I can say that Loreal Paris Excellence Creme Hair Color 4.3 Gold Caramel is a very good hair color to do at the comfort of home. It nourishes the hair and makes them shiny. There are plenty of shades to choose from this hair color.
