Loreal Mousse Absolue - Rich Dark Chocolate No. 425

Hey guys! 
 I do love dying my hair, to change/refresh my look every few months, and so I thought I would go back to my old favourite colour "chocolate brown". 
This is the first time I've tried this hair dye, and so I thought I could show you before and after pictures, aswell as my honest opinion. I liked the idea of a "reusable" hair dye, the packaging was ready to use straight away without having to mix anything! 

The application was incredibly easy. Loreal uses a mousse formulation (hence the name) and so I applied it myself layer by layer to the roots and ends.
I waited 30 minutes for the hair to develop before washing the dye out.
The box also included a conditioner in which I used once the dye had washed out.


My hair had become a really light brown from the amount of sun we've had here in the UK. As you can see there is definitely a difference. I would say the colour lives up to the expectations, and represents a chocolate brown.

From first impressions I do really like this hair dye, although I don't find it majorly different to any other dye I've used. As I said before, the application was really easy and so I would recommend this to anyone who's dying their own hair!
Have you tried this dye?

Love Laura

  7. Great review! Love the color it turned out. Sometime...(most of the time) I find that box dyes don't show the color they actually turn out to be!

  8. This colour is so pretty! I've never dyed my hair as I've been too scared of ruining it but your hair doesn't look anymore damaged than mine does x


  9. I really wanna try this hair dye - I love that you can keep the bottle to use again to touch up xx

  10. Oooh this is just gorgeous! I adore the rich, chocolate brown shade; in my opinion this shade is always so glossy and pretty; a killer combination! ;) Such a bonus the application was really easy too. It looks so lovely on you Laura <3

  11. This looks so interesting! And as somebody who is constantly changing their hair colour I definitely wanna get my hands on a new product. Also, love love love the fact you can keep it for touch ups as I always end up missing a streak (or a huge flippin great patch) of hair.
