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 of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
