Loreal Casting Creme Darkest Brown 200

Our hair is our crowning glory. 🙂 Actually, this information is mainly for middle aged woman like me.I have been using this for the past two years. The colour is in darkest brown .It’s neither jet black which looks sort of fake sometimes nor brown .So it merges well with your hair and gives an extremely natural look.

Gia says: “I neva thought i would cowllor my hair!” Like Penelope cruz 😛

Mainly we have grey hair on our side locks.So this colour suits it .Generally, i apply this colour every 20 days only on my side locks.So this hair colour lasts for 20 days.Since we wash our face so many times daily it goes off quickly.I only do touch-ups and do not color my complete hair every month which might prove to be damaging .

Always use less chemicals on your hair.I know looks do matter ,but you can’t fall prey to such chemicals.
This haircolor does make my hair look shiny or atleast helps to maintain the shine I have.Love it. 🙂
The day before i apply this, i do oil massage.Then apply color on my hair.This helps to prevent the damage.:D

Our hair is worth than anything else so always go for Quality products. I have heard garnier doesn’t make good hair colours.
This hair colour is without Ammonia and thus will not have side effects.

It is a semi-permanent color and thus it fades slowly.it’s better than permanent color as your roots will not be a different colour and the rest of the hair wont be different colour.Your whole hair would be the same.It will just fade slowly.I liked that about this colour.

If you have any question 🙂 Post below.

Loreal Casting Creme Darkest Brown 200 Review Overall rating: 1 out of 5 based on 1 reviews.

Mahogany turned to agony

1 5 1
I have been using Loreal hair colours for years now but a recent experience has left me wondering if there is some tampering with the product. I used Loreal Casting Creme Mahogany 550 last year before my holiday and during the entire 2 weeks my colour was bleeding leaving the hotel towels red. I was very disappointed not knowing what went wrong. And yesterday I tried the same brand but a different colour Praline Brown 530 that did not cover a single grey hair as the packaging claims. The Mahogany colour I picked up from a medical shop and the Praline colour was purchased from a supermarket. Waste of time & money!

My dad uses garnier but I actually don’t like it on him. It has a funny smell also. But he is kind of stuck on it. I dont think he is going to change only. :))

Can suggest this to my mom. Thanks for the review. :))

hi Rati Actually my sister is using garnier and she was complaining about hairfall and dryness of hair.According to me it is better to use loreal.Try to convince your dad.bye.


Rati December 16, 2010 at 7:10 pm

Can you tell me if it has any side effects or cons you felt while using? ??


Giasaysthat December 16, 2010 at 10:11 pm

Mom says
No sideeffects at all
it’s better to test it on your skin 48 hrs before


Shreya December 17, 2010 at 12:20 pm

Sumi December 17, 2010 at 2:35 pm

Hi sumi 🙂
No side effects.You must be young right? Start colouring your hair after 40
I started applying it after 40 .I used to apply Henna before.
Yes you’re not supposed to put it on your scalp and please do a patch test before applying. 🙂

Hi Sumi,
Thanks for the review. 😐 I have tried this before and I do like it. Used it for quite a while till about recently when I decide to streak my hair for the first time (Envi parlour in Inorbit mall in Hyderabad). Since then I stopped using this product. I streak my hair regularly now and I love it. Golden blonde’ish actually. :chic:

I have a question. I grey pretty quickly around my forehead (atleast thats where its most visible; I am 42 years old too). since my hair is short and I need to color only the greys in the front, can i use small quantities over a period of time or should I use the entire thing at one go? would appreciate any inputs I can get from any of you? ?:) ?:) ?:)


Sumi December 17, 2010 at 2:37 pm

You do not need use the entire thing.You can just do touch ups .
You can use one pac 3-4 times in this way 😀


Sumi December 17, 2010 at 2:38 pm

No, i oil my hair and then wash it 🙂
and then apply the color.
Not on the oil


Sumi December 17, 2010 at 5:13 pm

thanks Sumi

Mich November 15, 2011 at 3:19 am

I am a natural light brown hair, I have been dying my hair black for 10 years and I became allergic 5 years ago, really really bad allergies for over a month and i bleed and my glands get swollen i have to go yo hospital.I tried every kind of product, from henna to all hair brands, and the ONLY product that gives me the exact color I want is the loreal casting creme gloss, I still get itchy but just till the next wash, so the results are the best even for hypo allergic people, it lasts about one month the color. It’s the best hair dye I’ve ever used!! :jaiho:
