Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

I alternate between the violet and the pink. They are really pretty with you first do them but I love it when it starts fading. I think the key it to lighten your hair as light as you can and then honestly...when you do the color but a cap on top and let it sit for at least an hour. Just let it sit. You will get the most gorgeous color but also, don't wash it too much because the color does fade and use the appropriate shampoo for color. I get a ton of compliements on my hair. it looks really pretty when it fades and since my hair is grey underneath it looks very chic with a bit of color. I try to wash my hair as little as possible to keep the color but once it fades I can let it go for a long time before I recolor.

    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

    I would recommend bleaching your hair to as close to white as possible, since the dye is a light shade. I used Splat Bleaching Kit and it only took about 10 minutes to lift my dark blue permanent color out. Be thorough! If you have thin/thinning hair, the light hue keeps patchy spots from being noticeable. If you have naturally dark hair, remember that you will have to bleach your roots (which will be very obvious) every time you apply this color. A darker purple might be a better choice so you don't fry your roots/scalp. I have a short haircut and my natural color is medium blonde--I can apply this without re-bleaching. I would guess this to be rather high-maintenance on longer hair or darker hair.

    The color didn't work, even though I bleached my hair. For best use I'd use at least 2 boxes, and bleach before you apply.

    Pros

    • Doesnt stay too long

    Best Uses

    • Graying Hair
    • On totally gray

    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

    I am 3/4 gray. I'm tired of trying to pull off brown with that skunk stripe every three weeks regrowth. I am a young old lady. This color is subtle and fun, but glows nicely in sunlight
    . If your hair is porous, use a filler first. Test the timing. It takes me a ten on roots to five on the rest. My hair is thirsty so I use a trick my colorist taught me. Mix a bit color into the conditioner and run through the rest after he roots got the initial 10 min. Leave on about 5 min and rinse all out. This way not too much color gets sucked into the shaft. But I LIKE the pale lavender I get from his application. If you want shock purple there are kits that promise a less subtle look.

    AWFUL. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    By Annoyed I have to buy something else.

    from Texas

    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

    Why can't I give no stars? I seriously walked around the store contemplating even buying but my daughter kept saying this was the exact color she wanted on the front of the box which is gorgeous. Left it on longer and it still barely managed to color into a rose gold. Wasn't going for that color. Wish there was some way I could return.

    Worst Dye I Have Ever Used

    By Layton

    from Clarkston

    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

    I've dyed my hair multiple times at home, so I know what I'm doing. I've always used the Schwarzkopf brand, but I decided a lighter color would be fun, so I had to look for a different brand. So I found this. I followed all the instructions, lightened my hair, everything, and you know what this dye did? Absolutely nothing. It is ridiculous that I wasted my money on a product that doesn't even work. It didnt even give my hair any sort of color change - nothing happened! Don't buy this. You're just going to get disappointed.

    Initially loved the smoky lavender!

    By hedgie

    from Mobile. AL

    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

    First application on my light blond hair resulted in lovely smoky lavender as shown on package, yet second application to touch up light roots turned deep purple - impossible to remove color, even with two recommended color removers for permanent color. Fear only way to return to blond will be to cut long hair to just let roots grow out.

        I lightened to the recommended level before applying this product using the feria lightening box recommended. I am lucky in that the lavender seems to have toned the crazy carrot orange to a reddish blonde, but it isn't even remotely close to lavender. I wish I'd read the reviews first.

            Hi Curious, unfortunately your hair is too dark for Feria Pastels to appear on your hair. You would need to lighten your hair to a light blonde first!

            Hi, Vic! If you decide to bleach your hair before applying one of our pastel shades, there is no need for you to use a toner. We hope this helps!

        • Q:

          I did the lightening step of using this product. Hair went from light brown to bright orange (apparently didn't leave the bleach on long enough). What color will I end up with if I proceed to use the lavender? And if I use blue will it counter my orange hair like a toner would and I would end up with a lighter brown?

            A:

            We do not recommend using any of our Feria Smokey Pastel shades on orange hair. We are not sure what your result would be. You can bleach again in 2 weeks to finish the lightening process. If you would like to go back to a light brown, you can color in 2 weeks with Feria 60 Crystal Brown.

            A:

            To get the soft, smokey blue pictured on the box for the P1 its recommended to use this shade on hair that's natural light blonde or hair that has been bleached to a light blonde. Darker hair will not see the same results.

          I have salt and pepper hair, I was wondering if I use the Dusty Lavender would it just tint the grays and look like lavender highlights, that is kind of the result that I would hope for??

            A:

            We do not recommend using this shade on gray/white hair. The result might be a much brighter purple, instead of a pastel purple. It may not do anything to the darker pieces at all. We hope this helps!

            Féria Smokey Pastels are formulated for a soft, dusty color with smokey, sophisticated undertones. Smokey Pastels are ideal for light blonde hair. If hair is darker, start by pre-lightening with Feria Extreme Platinum. Apply Pastels 14 days later.
