L'Oreal Preference 5MM Medium Mahogany Brown is a brown shade with red tones from L'Oreal Preference.


This shade has mahogany tones, which are a mix of red tones and a smaller amount of purple tones and neutral tones, so it will be best suited to those with cool toned or neutral toned skin. It is possible for people with warm toned skin, as long as they are not too yellow, bordering on olive toned.

Using on lighter hair will yield brighter, redder results. This shade will be browner and darker if used on darker hair. Do not use on hair that has been previously colored any shade darker than medium brown or medium red.

Red hair color fades the fastest, so find a good deep conditioner for color-treated hair to retain color.
