I Colored My Hair with L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss in Iced Chocolate... Again! How & Why!


I Colored My Hair with L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss in Iced Chocolate... Again! How & Why!

I am a huge fan of L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss and when I color my hair at home, I 9/10 times go for this range. And the color that I pick is generally Burgundy. It's always worked for me and its something that is tried and tested and hence I can pick it up with closed eyes...

However, sometime last month I did a little experiment with my hair and I bleached my hair using facial bleach. Ummmm yeah! Needless to say I was left with blotchy patches of bright orange all over my head and my calling it unsightly would be an understatement. It looked horrible and extremely unkempt...

Since then I had been itching to go deeper (hair color wise) in the attempt to hide my "sins"... Needless to say I decided to again reach out to my trusted L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color in Burgundy while at the supermarket when I chanced to glance upon this shade called Iced Chocolate... Well it sounded yummy and the picture under the "After Results" on the carton looked dreamy enough for me to get the baby home!

If you follow me on Instagram you'd know that I colored my hair yesterday. If you don't then I'd highly recommend that you do so ;) My Instagram handle is @isimplylovemakeup...

Coming back, the hair color turned out beautifully rich and my hair now look healthier and looked after :) It has a new found sheen to it and it feels softer and more manageable... But well that isn't news to those who've used the Casting Creme Gloss hair colors... What really floats by boat is that it is Ammonia Free and hence its neither harmful for your hair and neither does it cause my eyes to burn and tear up during application...

How do you color your hair using L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color?

It's one of the easiest and the most convenient hair colors that you can apply at home... Its mess free, does not require you to use extra containers and comes with a pair of disposable plastic gloves too. So basically you are covered in every aspect (pun intended!)...

1. Unscrew the tube of the cream color, break the seal and squeeze the product inside the bottle of developer.

2. Close the bottle of the developer and shake till the cream and the developer become a homogeneous mixture of a darker color.

3. Cut the top bit of the lid of the developer bottle.

4. Wear the gloves that is provided with the pack. They are generally folded and kept inside the instruction manual.

5. Part your hair in sections and apply the cream and developer mixture generously. The long "neck" of the bottle helps you apply the mixture easily.

6. Keep the color in your hair for 20-25 minutes. If your hair is chemically treated the keep it for 15 mins.

To wash off the color, I'd suggest you to use lukewarm water and DO NOT SHAMPOO. Simply apply the nutri-shine conditioner that comes with the pack. Not shampooing immediately helps the color settle and gives it time to become more vibrant in the next 12-14 hours (that's my personal experience and tip :D)

Do I Recommend L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color?

I wholeheartedly recommend coloring your hair and if you are like me who prefers to color at home then L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss is one of the best products out there to get the job done! 

P.S. The shade Iced Chocolate is my new favorite and I like it better than Burgundy ;)

P.P.S. I tag my bestie to color her hair too cause joy shared is joy doubled :)


  1. The hair colour looks nice on you. I haven't coloured my hair but now I am tempted to give it a try.

  2. The shade looks so good yet natural on you! I have tried L'Oreal Casting colorsin the past and it is no doubt the best option to color at home !!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
