[Review] L'Oréal Casting Creme Gloss 8034 Honey Nougat

Sunday, July 5, 2015

Hi, lovelies! L'Oréal's Casting Creme gloss is my favorite hair dye and I always use it when I want to go blonde since they have so many pretty blonde shades to choose from. It also works just fine on my previously bleached and dyed hair. I've tried quite a few of different shades and I always loved the result, so obviously, this was the dye I used to get my current blonde hair which I showed you in another blog post. This time I went with this shade called 8034 Honey Nougat. This is just going to be a quick review so I'm not going to go into too much detail. Anyway, let's get to the point.

First of all, both my real hair and extensions have previously been dyed with toners in ash blonde, lilac and lavender to achieve the gray color I wanted back then, and the pigments from those previous dyes were still in there. I didn't have a particular result in mind. I pretty much just wanted a blonde shade that would be as light and warm as possible without having to bleach my hair. I absolutely hate when blonde shades turn too ashy/green and wanted to avoid it at all costs. I usually go with the Sunny Honey or Satin Blonde, but like I mentioned, my real hair and my extensions had previously been dyed silver and were already quite dark so I got this one in hopes to avoid making my hair turnout too dark and to make sure that any green tones will be canceled out as much as possible.

Instructions and stuff. It claims to cover grey hair and last up to 6-8 weeks. I don't think I can disagree.


In the pictures above you can see my hair right before dying it (washed with water and towel-dried) and right after I dyed it and dried it. As you can see, the result is quite nice and even except for the dark section which I assume was some regrowth. The color didn't turn out quite as warm and golden as the packaging shows, but the color changed completely and It canceled out most of those ugly green tones and I'm pretty happy with the result in general. Besides the amazing result, I also love how this dye makes my hair feel so soft and it smells absolutely amaaazing after the whole procedure. I know it looks kinda dry in the pictures, but I can assure you that it looks and feels a lot better in real life.

There was quite a big color difference between my real hair and my extensions, but I'm not gonna talk too much about that in this post since I just want to show you the result of this hair dye on my real hair. Anyhow, I fixed the color difference with some color correction using a lavender toner and I'm really happy with the result in the end. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Thanks for reading and bye for now, lovelies!
