My Hair Story | L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss | Review

Hello beauties. As you may have guessed from today's blog post title, I will be having a look at the L'Oreal Casting Crème Gloss hair dye. I must admit I was a tad excited to try out this hair dye purely because I've not died my hair in the longest of time and have not used this product but have always heard a lot of good things about it. 

My Hair Story

First of all let me start by telling you all that my natural hair colour is very fair and has a mousey tone to it. I was born blonde but through the years my hair slowly got darker and darker till it reached this shade which was not blonde nor brown, but somewhere in between. Although I'm not blonde anymore I do still get the odd few streaks of natural blonde that almost look like highlights. I suppose I'm quite fortunate as I can go either way when it comes to colouring my hair. 

From the age of seventeen to twenty-three I lived my life as a blonde and had it died every shade of blonde you could imagine. It was only a year ago I decided that I wanted a change and decided that brunettes could have just as much fun as blondes! I loved the new change and felt that being a rich chocolate brown suited me a lot more than blonde. However my hair did not want to stay brown for long at all and after a few weeks I would end up with my hair looking a very washed out brown with a coppery rusty feel to it, and this is the look I've been sporting for the last few months!

SO I really needed another change and instead of going for another chocolate shade I decided to dye my hair a mahogany colour as I thought that this would help to balance out the blonde and brown in my hair. I've always loved Cheryl Cole's hair colour when she had it that gorgeous mahogany colour and whist I was flicking though the magazine at work, there was the L'Oreal Casting Crème Gloss page with the lovely Cheryl showing off their mahogany shade. This is the reason why I decided to choose the L'Oreal hair dye out of all the other brands that my local Boots had to offer. 

The Review

On first impression the L'Oreal Casting Crème Gloss looks pretty much like any other hair dye that's out there in the market. For me there is nothing special nor unique about its packaging which draws me in. I've tried other L'Oreal hair dyes, but not the Casting Crème Gloss formula, so I thought I would give it ago. I was impressed with how many shades that they had to offer. If I had not known in the back of my mind what colour I was going for, I reckon I could have been there hours choosing the right shade. So I walked out of Boots with number 550 in Mahogany. 

I will be honest by saying I don't really have a clue in what makes a great hair dye, but box on the L'Oreal Casting Crème Gloss stated that: It gives you a rich glossy shine in colour, blends away any grey and will give your hair a satin soft feel. The covering of grey hair doesn't apply to me and not for a long time I hope. But I defiantly won’t say no to glossy hair and a satin soft feel! One thing I did notice on the box was that the actual dye contained no ammonia, which is always a bonus as anyone who has their hair dyed will know that that stuff stinks and does not make a pleasant experience!

The next thing that we beauties always look at on any hair dye packaging has to be the little colour chart which is always put on the side or at the back of the packaging. For me, personally I've given up on looking at these charts as my hair colour never turns out to be any of the colours shown in the chart. But for those of you who are interested here it is.

When looking inside the box, you get all your usual standard things you get with a hair dye: A trusty information leaflet, parts A and B to the hair dye, the applicator, conditioner and of course the much needed gloves which are always made for giants!

As far as application goes, I found the process really easy! I do dye my hair myself and by no means am an expert, but I found that the little nozzle applicator was really easy to use and was so accurate. Because it was me dying my own hair, there was the usual splatters of hair dye up my arm, in my ear and around the back of my neck, but if you had someone else to do this for you then I'm pretty sure you would be o.k. for splatters. I really liked that there was no nasty smell to the dye and it was as simple as the instructions made it out to be.

The Results 


I have to say I was pleased as punch with the results and absolutely love the colour of my new hair. I think it’s a colour that defiantly suits me and I it really has worked wonders on giving my hair a healthy look with lots of shine and volume. However as much as I love the colour and this product, I will be re-dying my hair again very shortly just because I don't feel that the colour is an intense as I would like it. I do put this down to me having long hair though and I was warned by my friend who is a hairdresser that I should go for two boxes. If you have short hair I think you will be absolutely fine with just the one box!

So I when it comes to re-dying I will be using the same L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in the 550 Mahogany shade and will be sure to keep you beauties updated on the final result. I hope you enjoyed this review and I would love to know your thoughts!

  2. The colour looks great. I am going to be a bore but please promote patch testing even if you dye regular & use the same product you can get a reaction. I recently told a friend how important it was & saved her from a reaction. During the patch test the dye burnt her skin which then peeled away.

  3. Oooh I really love the colour, makes your hair look much more glossy :)

  4. i have black hair i want to dye any tips

  5. Thanks so much for writing this review - saw lots of negative reports after buying the Mahogany. I have similar hair colour, but peppered with grey - feel more confiedent about giving it a go now. Looks great on you.

  8. Hey, I haven't dyed my hair before, but have just bought a Casting Creme Gloss in the colour 432 Rich Espresso. My hair colour is the same as yours naturally - kind of a dark blonde/mousey colour. I'm a bit worried as this is quite a dark colour! WILL IT WASH OUT COMPLETELY? Or will it transform the colour of my hair completely?
