As I wash my hair everyday it washed out after washing so I would only use it in an emergency when going out if I didnt have time to get a full dye.
It's a great product for a quick fix and I would buy it again just to have in case I need it
The bottle is a nice and lightweight but on my first attempt to spray it, I ended up with more on the wall than my hair as I didn't angle the bottle correctly at my hair. Luckily it washed off the wall with no problems and I tried again. You really need to apply it in one continuous spray down your roots and I got the hang of using it correctly. I found the colour a good match to my hair, I used the Brown colour. It lasted very well till I washed it but then I wash my hair everyday so I didn't leave it longer than a day. It did cover up all grey hairs very well.
I think I would buy it again but would just use it occasionally, like for a night out or special occasion. As I wash my hair daily, I think it might work out expensive to use it daily but then I did see it on special in Boots with a 3 for 2 offer. The only complaint was my hair to touch was a little sticky/hard where it was sprayed but I don't think that anyone would have noticed that I was using a Retouch Root Concealer.
The colour of L’Oréal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Brown was very good for my hair tone and I found it simple to use. It took 3 washes for the product to wash out completely but I will use again and recommend to my friends and family. I loved this experience.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of the trial .
Thank you for the opportunity to sample this product.
As a busy Mum of two boys who hurl and camp with beavers and scouts the thought of visiting the hairdresser is not something I particularly jump at or even have the time for! It feels like hard work trying to fit it in!!!! When I heard about L'Oreal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer I was delighted to try it out.
It is my first time to try a product like this so I wasn't sure what to expect.
When I applied it my hair was definitely in need of a colour as the greys were more than peeping through!
The colour I had picked to try was the dark blonde. The colours I usually get in my hair are low lights and highlights so I chose a colour in between the two of those i.e. dark blonde.
Applying the product was easy and the outcome… Well it certainly does exactly what it says it will do. My grey roots were completely covered and the tone of the dark blonde blended well with the colour already in my hair. It looked like I got my low lights topped up!
I was delighted with the result and will definitely be keeping this product in my "must haves" beauty list which, if I am honest is not a very long list! I will get to go to the hairdresser soon but until then I have my L'Oreal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer as my secret weapon against the greys.
10 out of 10 from me!
I often need a colour touch up in between colouring my hair as I have gone from fair to dark colour, which means the roots appear much quicker.
I found the L’Oreal Paris Magic Retouch great for my grey hairs, although I am only starting out with them. I think I picked the correct shade, it’s hard to know if you choose the right one but mine looked well.
It was lightweight and not too sticky. The colour lasted about 2 days before fading.
I would use it again, after my sample is gone, I’ll definitely buy one as it is super handy to have.
I will be recommending it to my mum and sister as they could use the darkest one for their grey hairs and regrowth after colour.
- It's very easy to use;
- Covers the greys effectively and this coverage lasts until the next time you wash your hair;
- A little goes a long way (I sprayed twice on my roots and I was good to go)
- It made my roots hard, just like a hairspray
- I noticed that at the end of the day my scalp felt quite itchy;
These are the pros and cons in my opinion; Overall its a good product, if you have grey hair, it's easy to use and washes off perfectly.
I might use it again if I'm in need of a quick fix on my roots.
I found it to cover up great all the grey was gone I did think it's a little tricky in application to know the right amount to apply.
Firstly I tried as the bottle suggested, spraying in a light stream it didn't cover enough for me though I've very thick hair. I waited for it to dry which did seem to take an age, it didn't seem to dry at all properly, it left my hair feeling a bit tacky kind of like a waxy feel perhaps it's a waterproof agent in it I guess so it doesn't run in the rain. This apparently wasn't noticeable to others but was to me. Absolutely no one noticed anything in my hair it's not aparant that you are using a product in it to others which is fantastic. Be careful if you spray a second time I found it may stain your scalp maybe this was only because I've so much hair & it needed a bit extra. (I used the light blonde)
It did take a few shampoo's in the one spot where I put it to remove it & seemed to leave a dry spot where it was sprayed.
Overall would I buy it again, yes definitely especially if I was heading out somewhere & I wanted a temporary fix for the night I wouldn't be using it daily as it would work out expensive. It's a handy size & lightweight which I found to be convenient. Again thanks for letting me trial this product it was fantastic to try it first hand myself.
I would recommend it to friends and can see myself buying it again.
