L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I
bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$:
Rs 425

Comments:
There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to mis
s the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not ha
ppy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate brown that was promised. I left it on for the recommended 20 mins. I suppose it was the wrong shade for me to pick, but I was not in the mood to be too exploratory.

The good thing is the fact that I'm OK to go buy another box at Health & Glow, as the fella at the counter told me that if I were to bring the original box back (the paper box), undamaged, they could knock a Rs 100 off the next purchase.

This time though, I'm gonna go for a different colour- perhaps medium brown. Don't go for this shade if you have hair that's already black, though those who want black with rich chocolate shade reflecting, only when in the sun, can go ahead. Let me know how it turns out!

well no experience in coloring my hair....i don't like it...when people do that....it doesn't look good.....

Saro said…
@ Ace: he he. We all have our inner bimbos :P

@ Hitesh: Correct, Casting creme. And the same colour is what I put on, trust me doesn't make a daym difference. So, its good for people who want the experience, without the colour.. and well end up with lighter pockets as a result of it.

A very hair raising post, I have no idea why i continued reading even after you mentioned it to be a review of the product!
Saro said…
Ace: Bang on.. and all those other things we do when no one is watching he he

Murali: You were taking a break from questioning the reservations for women, to learn a little about why women write about hair colour. Strangely, all the comments here are from men.. Ace, you're a guy right? I still can't connect to your blog!

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…
