I have been using Clairol Root Touch up for years but I decided to try L'oreal Root Rescue because my old brand was not covering the grey as well as I liked. I am absolutely THRILLED with my new find. The L'oreal Root Rescue covered my grey roots and my hair feels so soft and looks really shiny! Thank you L'oreal .....I will definately be using this product again and again!!!!

Clumsy and Wasteful Applicator Moff ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I love Loreal products in general, but sorry, this one needs some improvement. The rather rigid applicator bottle is hard to squeeze so the product doesn't flow out evenly but in spurts and spits. That made application difficult for me, plus it's impossible to get all of the product out of the bottle so some is wasted. But worse, despite leaving it on my hair for at least 15 minutes, it didn't cover my gray anywhere near as well as its competitor, Clairol Root Touch-up, which I have been using for about 2 years. (Maybe it isn't the formula at fault for this so much as it is the clumsy applicator bottle, I can't be sure. A big difference in the two brands is that Loreal says shampoo after, Clairol says no need to shampoo, simply rinse the product out. Perhaps shampooing right away removes too much product so there isn't as good coverage??) I do love the conditioning effect of Loreal Root Rescue, but then that's not my primary goal when coloring gray, so on that note, I can't recommend this product. I will go back to my tried and true, easy to mix, easy to apply, Clairol Root Touch-up, which uses an open tray and brush rather than a hard-to-squeeze stiff bottle. (Loreal might be a worthy contender if it weren't for that stiff applicator.)

I have paid for top salon color for many many years. Started using this product when covid hit and will never pay salon prices again. Goes on easy and permanently colors. Great match. Get compliments all the time

Poor quality control Na766 ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I was pleased with this product in the past- but this time it left my roots dark brown. I have blonde hair and purchased med blonde. I believe the box was labeled incorrectly. I definitely will not purchase again. Thank goodness my hairdresser was available to repair the damage.

#9 color variance NJMC25 ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I’ve been a long time user of this product but have now experienced twice where the color in the box is red so I wind up throwing it away. I bought 2 boxes recently both from the same store and have attached a picture to show the difference in color when I went to use them. Why would the colors be different? I don’t like throwing away money and have now had to toss 2 boxes like this.


Hi NJMC25. Thank you for reaching out to L'Oreal regarding the Magic Root Rescue. We are sorry to hear your mixture was different than usual. We’d like to help! Please call us at 800-631-7358, M-F, 9am-5:30pm, ET and provide us with your reference #21988772. Looking forward to hearing from you!

It did nothing Stacey ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I left this on for 12 minutes (medium brown #5) It did not work at all I do use L’Oréal excellence cream color medium brown and love it. I’ve used it for years. The root rescue doesn’t even compare.

We strive to deliver products that will be 100% satisfactory to our consumers and want to know when these expectations are not met. We will be passing on your comments to others in our team.

barely covers, more product needed Tippie ·
Recommended Not Recommended

I’ll be straight I love the product and the packaging but there’s hardly enough product to do the job you’ll need at least 2 packs and by that time you might as well just purchase the full kit of a regular dye.I will still use this but wish the manufacturer would put enough in one bottle to do the job once instead of ruining the environment with extra waste. this product lightens in colour by about 3 shades in just 3-4 weeks. That aside the brush adapter system is genius and I wish all the regular kits had this.


Hi there! Thank you for sharing your feedback on our Magic-Root-Root-Rescue-10-Minute-Root-Hair-Coloring-Kit-4-Dark-Brown. We are so sorry to hear that it did not meet your expectations. We understand how frustrating this can be. We will be sure to pass your comments along to the team as we are always looking for ways to improve. We hope you will continue to use our products with greater success in the future!

Disappointed Sue68 ·

I bought this to cover up the grey in my part and hairline on the sides of my face. Really not a lot of grey, just trying to make it to my next hair color appointment. There is some coverage on my part however, barely any along the hairline. So disappointed


Hi Sue68! Thanks for reaching out to us regarding Magic Root Rescue. We can understand how disappointing it is to try a new haircolor and not be satisfied with the results. We're sorry to hear you did not get good gray coverage with this product. We value consumer opinions and will share your comments with our teams.

Pandemic rescue! Pandemic help ·

This is a wonderful product that has served me well during the pandemic. Excellent coverage that provides flexibility for scheduling hair appointments. Great job L’Oréal!

Labeled incorrectly Nnorma ·
Recommended Not Recommended

Are you all aware that the labeling on your Magic Root components are backwards? The color Gel is labeled “2” but the instructions call it 1, and the Developer is labeled “1” but is described as 2 in the instructions. Has no one ever caught this?
