I use because I like the color. Because it produces a shadow of the color so it is not a stark contrast, produces a tricolor effect. I wished it lasted longer.

                Disapointed in results. Color looked good on the white blonde parts of my hair, but made the yellow blonde sections turn a pink orange color instead. I suggest having a white blonde base before applying this product! Lasted only two days for me

                  According to the box my hair would be labeled as "Light Blonde". Therefore, I figured if I do everything then why shouldbf my color turn out like the picture on the box . WRONG my hair is somewhat an Indigo blue . Next, time I'll follow my instinct and leave my hand alone especially with box colors

                    Comments about L'Oréal Feria Smokey Pastels:

                    I neglected to absorb the fact that the color is "Smokey Lavender". I was just so thrilled with the color on the box. I do know that if something is "smokey" it means there is ash coloring in there and that my hair will turn very dark. Such was the case. After several washes and rinses with hydrogen peroxide, the color has come from dark grey with lavender overtones to something softer. I still have a long ways to go before I get to the color that was on the box. My hair was the lightest color represented on the box color chart and has not been colored in a couple of years.
                    Otherwise, I have always loved Feria. It makes my hair feel good.

                        A:

                        Hi Nannie! Using this shade on gray hair will result in a much more vibrant result. Since gray hair is lacking pigment and undertone, this will most likely come out a very vibrant and bright purple rather than a smokey shade. For gray hair we suggest using a shade in our Excellence Creme. Thank you for your question!

                      I bought the smokey lavender because I am not very pleased with the results of my last color. I used a 9/13 boxed colour. My question is will this colour turn out to be what's on the box? Is my hair light enough?

                        Hi Amy! Thank you for inquiring about our Smokey Pastels Haircolor. If you hair is a Dark Blonde or lighter, you will see the results that are shown on the box. However, because you have previous color on your hair, and it is very light, you may see a result that is much lighter than the color shown on the box. If you would like to discuss this further, please call our toll free guideline number (800)-631-7358. We hope this helps!

                        Hi Panda! This shade will result in a blue color more so than a grey color. On Blonde colored hair, if there are any very light pieces, you will get a brighter blue than on the darker pieces. We hope this helps!

                      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.

                        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.
