Have you seen the latest L’Oreal Hair Colour TV Commercial?

The ad features their new range of Casting Creme Glossy Blacks hair colour with Penelope Cruz. The hair colours contain a shimmer/glossy tone so the black “won’t harden your features”.

This is a very negative tag line, and frankly speaking as someone with black hair, it’s a little offensive. If my hair doesn’t have a glossy tone to it, are my features being hardened?!

Surely there must be a more positive way of advertising the product. How about a tag line like: “black hair rocks!”

C’mon L’Oreal, surely we’re worth it too!
