L’Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Hair Color – Black Review

Dear IMBBians,

Today, I am going to review a product, which has been in the market since quite many years now. It’s the L’Oreal Paris Excellence Creme hair color I am talking about.  To be honest, I was really surprised to find no review on it yet.  Anyway, this is my first post on any product that is not used by me, but my mom.  L’Oreal Paris Excellence Creme claims to come with (protective and revitalizing creme colorant) infused with “prokeratin” which gives “100% grey coverage and protects the hair rich, even long lasting color.”

L’Oreal Paris Excellence Creme Hair Color Black Review

My mom has been using this product since two years now and she is more than happy and so satisfied with it that she does not even consider trying out the other hair colors that are available in the market.

As all the other colorants, this too comes with a developer, a protective creme colorant, and a fairly recent addition to it, the protective serum, and a wonderful comb applicator which makes it even easier to apply the color in the inner strands of hair.

Product Description:

Hair is predominantly made up of keratin, which plays a key role in the healthy, younger looking hair. Over time, hair loses its keratin. Enriched with pro keratin, new excellence crème strengthens and revitalizes your hair for a rich even long lasting color.

Product Description

Devleena's mom

The black looks wonderful, and the conditioner has a wonderful smell, which stays on for like a day or so. This is a YES-YES to all those women who are looking forward to color their hair in black, the results will amaze you. However, the only complaint I have heard from my mother about this is that it doesn’t stay for too long, a maximum of 3 weeks.  Also, applying with the applicator is only for when you are using up the whole of the creme, as it needs to be set on the mouth of the “developer” bottle, but giving all these advantages against just one or two downsides is a win-win of course.

IMBB Rating:

4.99/5 (-0.01 for the not-so-strong staying power).

So long till my next review beauties.  Stay happy, stay beautiful.
