Today, I am here to share a magical product with you all which works like a charm for premature greying hair and. Thankfully, I am yet to use this product, I am blessed with silky black hair (got that gene from my mom), but my sister is not as lucky as she started noticing grey hair when she hit 30. Moreover, blame it on the California weather, both my hubby and cousin sister suffer from similar woes. I discovered this amazing hair coloring product in my sister’s vanity. I was very amazed to see how easy it is to work with this hair mousse, so I bought it for my hubby as well. Let’s read more about L’Oreal Paris Superior Preference Pure Deep Black Absolute Mousse!

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue Automatic Reusable Hair Color:
The hair color and activator cream both come in an opaque metallic bottle packaging wrapped together with secure tight cap. The packaging certainly justifies the innovative idea of “no mix,” automatic mousse hair coloring technique. It is an “easy peasy” “no mess” bottle which helps in coloring the hair perfectly as we just need to replace the black cap with the diffuser cap prior to spraying the mousse, and that’s it! The hair conditioner comes in separate opaque tube packaging with twist-over cap. I dislike its strong ammonia smell which might be too much for sensitive noses while the hair conditioner smells really nice. Overall, it’s a good deal with a travel-friendly packaging.

Talking about the shade “Pure Deep Black,” it is close to natural black hair color and imparts a deep black silky color to grey and granny hair. Inspired by my sister, I bought it for hubby dear and I am pretty happy with this decision as I can see that the mousse gives perfect, silky, lustrous hair texture.

I find it perfect for my hair type, but I am yet to use it, so I will follow sister’s experience. As you can see in the pictures, this “no mix” idea works smartly as both the hair color and the activator crème bottles are closely packed with common nozzle diffuser and cap as well. All we need is to shake it 20 times vigorously in order to activate the products inside and simply hold the bottle at an angle (not too much as it may lead to disturb the proportion of cream and color). Tilt it to 45 degrees for root touch-ups and push the button to spread mousse on the scalp or hair. But make sure that you don’t use too much mousse at once because it may seem light and fluffy initially, but it soon settles down to dripping black dye which may drip down into your eyes and down your neck, so be cautious.

However, the mousse does not irritate the skin if it comes in contact with the skin, but it may leave a stubborn black stain which will take 2-3 days to fade, and it surely looks ugly. I use gloves to apply this mousse on my sister and hubby. I feel you can color your hair without the help of another person though and that’s quite impressive.
Once you have applied the mousse onto the hair roots and strands, you need to gently massage it on to grey hair or roots to cover them evenly with the help of gloves. Make sure you shake it well before dispensing on to the next area. Massage well to saturate the color evenly on your scalp, roots and hair. Wait for 30 minutes before rinsing it off. Yes, it sounds like a dream – to just shake, dispense, saturate and ta-da, the job is done!
After 30 minutes, it will dry up to a stain or even if it does not dry completely, it will leave a stain. Just wash it off properly, taking care to protect your eyes and mouth. We can re-use it provided you safely replace the diffuser cap to its original black cap and keep it in dry place for the next use.
Now, the final step is to follow it up with the color supreme conditioner, which is equally easy to use. Just massage the cream conditioner in the hair for 2-3 minutes and then rinse off, that’s it! You would get soft and silky hair which looks natural. In fact, I was hesitant at first to recommend it to hubby, but when I saw that my sister’s hair looked bouncy, soft, deep black, I was sure it wouldn’t dry out my hair like other strong ammonia dyes. I have been using the hair conditioner and find that it makes my hair soft.
The color remains for 2 months on my sister’s hair, but she washes her hair twice a week while my hubby washes his hair every alternate day, yet the color stayed for as long as 5-6 weeks. I did not see any side effects of using this hair mousse. They did not suffer from any headache, itching, aggravation in dandruff condition, or blurred vision. They have also not noticed sudden hair fall or an increase in grey hair. Once the effect of dye wears out, your hair comes back to its original state.
I am keen to get it for my in-laws who dye their hair occasionally, this is an easy yet effective way to conceal grey hair. Personally, I am also interested to try this hair mousse in the shade “burgundy” or blonde, but I also heard that the colors usually work well for light colored hair unlike my natural deep black hair, hence I am yet to select the shade, but if I ever make up my mind to use hair color, it would be this hair mousse, for sure.
If you need a quick root touch up or whole hair coverage, then try it. You can apply it on the same day that you have an important function to attend. My sister vouches for its effectiveness and so does my hubby 🙂

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue Automatic Reusable Hair Color:
