L'Oreal Casting tone on tone gel hair colourant is a great way to colour your hair and achieve a very natural and even look. It uses an applicolour system and is free of ammonia. I find there is very little mess involved when using this colouring system.
The box contains two plastic containers which interlock. Once fitted together they have to be shaken well and then just squeezed gradually onto your hair, which should be damp but not just washed, and then, trying to part hair with the nozzle whilst running it along the partings, and paying attention to hairlines, use all solution. It's really easy and as the gel is quite thick not messy either.
Next massage the gel into your hair and then leave on for differing amounts of time, depending on the look you wish to achieve or, whether you have previously coloured hair. I find twenty minutes is ideal for the result I require.
When the amount of time has elapsed, work into a lather, adding a little water and then rinse well. Add the thick conditioner and leave for two minutes,until rinsing for a final time.
Included in the box is a pair of thin plastic gloves to protect your hands and a small bottle of fruity smelling conditioner. Also, illustrated instructions which are very easy to follow.
Over the last few years I have used this product often and tried different shades. I have 'been' a sun kissed natural blonde, a pearl blonde, champagne ash blonde, and once I was really brave and daring and became an overnight brunette! This was achieved with 'walnut medium brown.'
My natural colour is fair so, when using the blonde tones I get a natural lift to my colour which, and most importantly for me, blends and hides the grey hairs that I'm starting to get around my hairline. The grey is completely concealed for at least six weeks.
A while ago, as I have said, I wanted to try being brunette and so did. Everyone remarked on how natural the shade was. I was asked often if I'd reverted to my natural shade.
I find that although this colour is supposed to last for six weeks it does in fact last longer. It tends to fade very gradually. Also, hair feels well conditioned after using it. Quite smooth and silky, in fact.
Casting is readily available from chemists and supermarkets. I have bought it from different outlets and usually pay around three to four pounds for it, sometimes less when on offer.
