L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue

L’Oréal Paris is proud to introduce Superior Preference Mousse Absolue – the first-ever automatic and reusable hair color. Mousse Absolue’s dual chamber canister is the most sophisticated packaging ever from L’Oréal Paris. With just one push, the perfect ratio of pure color dyes and a powerful color developer is automatically mixed into a rich, non-drip mousse that allows for a smooth, no-mess application. The no-mix, reusable system keeps color fresh and allows for seamless root touch ups or multiple applications on shorter hair – all on demand. The sixteen shades available within the Mousse Absolue collection were artfully curated by L’Oréal Paris Expert Colorist Christophe Robin. Utilizing the iconic Superior Preference Formula, each shade is a perfect blend of rich, unique tones and highlights.

Why I like it?

I like to go to the hairstylist, but one in a while I don’t have time or I want to save $400! That’s why I decided to try L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue. I chose Pure Dark Blonde (700) because I wanted a change for the fall. I like it because it was extremely easy to apply without the mess of the liquid hair color.

My tips when choosing a color.

If you’re not sure which color to choose, select the lightest? from the 2 colors you have in mind, better if your hair is lighter than expected, because is easier to fix in case your don’t like the color.

Read the instructions on the box carefully, although L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue says is reusable hair color, it all depends on the length of your hair, me for example I had to use both tubes because the lenght of my hair.
