Last Words on Choosing LÓreal Hair Color Shades

In case you have some lingering questions on LÓreal hair colour shades, we’ve tried answering a few.  

Is Loreal hair color harmful?

LÓreal hair color products are enriched with keratin and ceramide to make the color last long, and leave your hair silky smooth. However, hair color products do cause some bit of damage to the hair follicle. You could try special hair masks to keep your hair healthy, and free of breakage and split-ends.

How do I choose a hair color?

Your skin undertone helps you decide the best LÓreal hair color shade for you. The golden rule is that cool skin undertones should wear warm hair color shades, and warm skin tones should wear cool hair colors. Neutral skin tones can wear any shade they like!

What is Loreal Casting Creme Gloss?

LÓreal Casting Creme Gloss is a semi-permanent hair color range of fashion hair color options. It’s perfect for someone looking for a quick makeover. On the other hand, the The LÓreal Excellence Creme products are a permanent hair dye range, perfect for grey coverage.

While coloured hair is great to look at, it is equally hard to maintain. You have to work hard to make your hair colour last long, which means following a regular hair care routine, going for hair spas, and using products specially meant for coloured hair. All this will help not only improve your hair’s health, but will also make your hair colour last longer.
