L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss ‘323 Sonam’s Dark Chocolate’ – Review
I went for global highlights at the beginning of this year and totally loved it. I re-did it again few months back but eventually, I got bored with it. If you follow me on Instagram, you’d know that I recently got rid of my highlights. Since I’ve always had light brown hair, I wanted to go a bit dark this time. I was confused between 500 Medium Brown & 323 Dark Chocolate and finally settled with the later.

My Review on L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss ‘323 Sonam’s Dark Chocolate:
L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss comes in white cardboard packaging which includes developer milk, protective hair colorant, hair conditioner, special comb applicator and a set of hand gloves along with an instructions manual. I miss the protective hair serum which is included in the L’Oreal Paris Excellence Cream kit.
The instructions manual is very well described and quite easy to follow. The hair color is fairly easy to mix and the special comb applicator makes application even simpler. The non-drip conditioning formula makes it even more easier and less messier. It does have an odd hair color smell which fortunately fades away quickly.
323 Sonam’s Dark Chocolate is described as a rich and glossy chocolate-brown color. However, the color failed to meet my expectations and in fact totally disappointed me. It turned out way too darker than any brown colors I’ve tried so far. In-fact, it made me hair look black (The brown color is my old highlights which hasn’t been covered completely but the ends are dark). Like I stated before, I have naturally light brown hair and I’ve never gone so dark with my hair color either. Even though I kept it ion for the said 20 minutes, I thought it might have been on for a bit longer and the color might just fade away within 2 washes. My hair color is 4 wash old today and the color is still black as opposed to the promise chocolate-brown.
Apart from that, L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss gives my hair and even and tonal quality making my tresses seem very naturally. The conditioner provided with the kit works very well and leaved my hair soft, smooth, silky & shiny. However, it had a very strong smell which gives me a headache, literally! Also, does not offer 100% grey coverage. I could still see gray hair after the first wash. The color stays intact for up to 10 washes and starts fading after that (as per my previous experience with the product).
[box type=”shadow” ]Overall, I am not very happy with the way the color turned out on my hair. I was expecting a chocolate-brown or at least something closer to that but all I got was black. I guess it was a wrong choice of color by me. This, however, won’t stop me from buying and coloring my hair from L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss. It always makes my hair soft, smooth & glossy! It is still the most easy and inexpensive way to color my hair.
