This week I received a pack I was very excited about, some L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss. This was courtesy of BzzAgent and I'm totally grateful as my hair was all kinds of colour and needed some oomph. Unboxing the parcel I found a sheet explaining how to use the product safely, including a 48 hour allergy pre-test, also some vouchers for £1 off and of course the product itself wrapped in bright pink tissue paper. Inside the box; colourant, developer creme, precision tip applicator, Shine Enhancing Conditioner with Royal Jelly, professional quality gloves and the instructions.

I was offered a choice of colours, picking Dark Chocolate (323) since I've been considering having my hair darker for ages, bit of a risk for me as I don't get much sun (forever pale sigh). My sister kindly said she would help me dye it, the application was simple and fast, without the smell I usually consider hair dye to have (maybe as there is no ammonia). It only took 20 minutes to wait until it could be rinsed out and then I used my John Frieda shampoo and conditioner when rinsing it out. 

I couldn't quite believe how healthy and soft my hair felt after using this, the Royal Jelly conditioner was clearly something brilliant for my poor drying hair. The colour outcome was a deep chocolate brown, darker than I'd imagined but I am very pleased, it has drawn out the natural tones of my hair with out leaving it a flat and dull colour. I feel it looks very natural and most definitely at a salon standard. There is no doubt, I will be using this product again! My sister got one of my vouchers, ready to get her own pack of L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss.

You can find this product in Boots and in most supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury's, etc.)
Please excuse my tired look in these photos, taken late after a run and busy day.
