I bought this thinking why buy an entire box of color when I only need a root touch up! It cost almost the same price as a full box of color. So, trying not to be wasteful I bought it. I followed the instructions exactly as written. When I got in the shower I thought yeah, grays are gone for a while. After towel drying, then blow drying I was shocked to see all the gray still there! It didn't work at all! What a waste of my time & money! About 2 months later I tried it again, thinking maybe I made a mistake. Nope! Still didn't color my gray roots at all! I'm trying the new Mousse Absolue this week. We'll see how it goes. But I will not waste time or money on Root Rescue again. Ever!

This was the first time that I have ever tried to color my roots. I usually get my hair colored professionally, but I have been sick and unable to go to the salon. It had been over 10 weeks since I had my hair colored so my roots were very bad. This product was simple to use. I used the ash blonde, and to get a good blend, I took what was left over from the roots and rubbed it through my hair with my hands. I ended up with very good results. I didn't do as good has my hairdresser does, but she is a professional and I am not. For the shape my hair was in, I'm extremely happy with the results. This product completely covered my streaks of gray.

I love love LOVE this product! After spending 150.00 every 8 weeks for coloring and cut, this product is amazing! I started using excellence cream in mocha ash brown a few months ago and will never go to the salon for a color again! And now that I can touch up my roots with this super easy to use, amazing and awesome product, I am one incredibly happy woman! I actually colored my roots today with an 11 month and 3 year old home with me!!! Soooooo easy to use and fast and perfect! I have tough grays and I left on for the recommended 15 minutes and when my daughter came home from school, she noticed my hair immediately and thought I went to the salon! Nope! I did it myself!!! My husband does my all over color for me which is like a fun date night! But this is so simple and fast, I love it! And my hair looks amazing! So loreal, if you need a mom of 4 spokesperson to praise your hair coloring, I am that lady!!!!

This does what it's suppose too! Its really easy to use and can be done in very short time. the only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is I think they should give you a little bigger bottle!

<slapping my forehead> I should have tried Root Rescue 9A a VERY LONG TIME AGO! I have disliked my hair color for nearly two years now and have bounced between L'Oreal 8, 8.5 and Wella Color Charm 8N from Sally. All 3 just leave my hair brassy. I have a few grays but my hair has darkened over the past few years so my roots are probably in the natural 7 range of dark (unattractive, mousey, blah!) blonde.... was always a natural 9ish until my 40s. So.... disappointed with paying $180 at the salon for a cut n' color.... disappointed in the 8s in boxed color.... and NOT liking strawberryish blonde, brassy hair.... I decided to just try Root Rescue since I had washed out a month of brass and my hair was a tolerable shade but with about a half inch line of roots at my part. Holy cow! ROOT RESCUE IS WHAT I HAVE NEEDED! I followed instructions but applied liberally to my part and temples.... and dragged a few strands through by hand hoping for a bit of a highlight while I was at it. It blended with the 8N though it is considerably blonder AND NOT BRASSY! I got a few highlights and think I am only going to use this fron now on! Everyone suggests a 20V developer for me but clearly I need higher because Root Rescue is 25V and I am lifted past that reddish brass color! I love that it was very easy to apply and only took a whopping 15 minutes total. Thank you, L'Oreal. Tonight was an unexpected result of which I really am pleased with!

Used root rescue instead of my regular brand. I like the ease of use, and being able to wash afterwards. Two suggestions: the glasses covers are still mentioned on the directions and are no longer enclosed. that was a great idea! And the only other comment is the gloves are difficult to get off without turning inside out thus making it messy to put them back on to rinse. But I will definitely be buying this product in the future.

I gave this product a try twice now to cover up my grays and both times, it failed miserably. I left the product on for about 30 minutes 'cause I know some of my grays are very resistant to color. Still, it wouldn't take. I used a dark brown and the end result was a very light tan color that washed off in a single shampoo. No more. So disappointing.

I just used this for the first time. I was nervous because of mixed reviews, but went with my gut and gave it a try. GREAT RESULTS! My natural color is dark brown with a little gray. I have it dyed to overall light-medium brown with blonde highlights. I used the medium brown root rescue only on my part, my hairline and a row or 2 beyond the part. Let it in for 15 minutes because of my resistant gray. I rinsed with cold water, than shampooed twice as my fear was the dye would color my highlights. I ended up with almost no loss of highlights, beautiful matching and blending, and gray gone! Looks terrific! Thank you L'Oreal.

Loved it. I read the reviews after I bought it and I don't know what some of these users are talking about. There is more than enough product. It is meant for your roots and temples. Not all over. I starting coloring my hair about 4 years ago. The first year I did it, didn't like the results, and have had it done at the salon ever since. I now want to grow my hair out and I needed a touch up. Watch the video. It helps. It took about 5 minutes to apply and I left it on for 15. I don't know my color used in the salon, but this blended beautifully. Will definitely use again.

After three weeks the grays are back! I left the product in an extra five minutes and did not shampoo for 48 hours. I had hoped this product would lessen the time between all over coloring to using it maybe once a month. Not going to happen!! Although I like the results from using the Heathy Color , I don't like the funky pink looking roots I get from my desired color. I used the dark brown to hide my roots and at first was happy with the results, but today I was shocked and dismayed to see my

I have always loved L'Oreal products until this one! Although the Root Rescue was easy to mix in the Conditioning Developer Creme Bottle, it was VERY difficult to dispense! To get the color out, I continuously tapped the bottle against the sink. And, when squeezing it, it came out a glob at a time, one which spurted onto my eyelid! So much of the color clung to the inside of the bottle that I was not even able to color all of my roots. I have not dried yet, but am prepared for disappointment.

Needs to go back to product design

I am extremely disappointed in this product. The applicator itself is messy, it spurts, especially when there is not much product left. The product went all over the place.Plus, like a shampoo bottle that is tall, it does not allow you to get to the last film of product that lines the bottle. There was not enough product to even cover my roots in the front of my head. And the color itself was much lighter than it should have been. I was using soft black and the color was medium brown at most.

First time using it. Wanted something to cover my gray roots in between hair colorings. Have lots of gray on top but keep it colored close to original natural color of medium brown with red and gold highlights. This product was VERY easy to use - did it first thing in the morning, before showering and before going to work. And it did a nice job of covering my roots sufficiently until my next hair coloring (in 10 days). (gray roots make me look like I'm going bald - this took care of that).

My roots turned ORANGE instead of DARK BROWN

I purchased this product because I have minimal grey and wanted to color a few hairs at my hair line and around my face. My hair is naturally dark brown. I have not colored my hair in 6-8 weeks. I had at least an inch of regrowth, possibly more. I followed the instructions on the box and the paper inside to a tee. I am a fanactic when it comes to my hair, and always make sure I am going to make it look as good as it can. I was very disappointed to get out of the shower and see ORANGE HAIR!

Have used root touch up products before(other brands) with never a problem. Thought I'd give loreal a try this time. What a mistake. While the product was developing it looked to be dark brown. What a shock to step out of the shower and find that not only were my grays not all covered, but any place I had put the product my roots were now much lighter. I have a very light strip of hair down the center of my head, whereas the rest is dark brown. Would never purchase this product again.

I decided to try this product since I have been using Loreal hair color for years and love it. First of all, there is not enough color to do all of your roots, and the applicator is difficult to use if you have thick hair. I was so shocked when I came out of the shower as it didn't look like I colored my roots AT ALL. All my greys were still there. The price is nearly the same as the regular hair color so I will definately not buy this product again. It was a waste of time and money.

I have used other root touch up products, and have always been happy with the light auburn color match. L'Oreal was the only product available at the store, so I tried it. Now I have a stripe on my head. It doesn't match my salon color AT ALL. Also, the applicator was awful and doesn't apply the product easily or at a consistent rate, so it clumps the product onto other parts of your hair, not just your roots. I will never use this product again. I just hope it washes out quickly.

I decided this would hold me over until I could afford to redo my highlights. My hair is naturally blonde and my highlights are pretty light so I chose shade 9 to get that happy medium...I look like Nicole Kidman growing out her highlights. The color looks NOTHING like the shade on the box. It's closer to a brassy shade 7 at best. I have used boxed color and highlights in the past so I didn't think I was taking a huge risk with a product that even has a guarantee. I was so wrong.
