I have been using this for a minute. I do love the color (black) but doesnt last that long. It fades really fast and for the life of me I could not figure out why my hair was always so dry. Then one day I was at a friend house and the commerical came on and she said that this hair color is not good fro your hair it dries your hair out. So I decided to read some reviews on it and BAM everyone is saying the same thing. The only best thing about this Hair Color is the conditioner, But after this review I will not be using it again!!!!
I have used silver blonde on my hair two times now. my hair is naturally medium-dark brown, so i didnt expect anything even resembling silver blonde. instead, it is a pretty strawberry blonde, not yellow, not orange thou, so im really happy with it, because blonde dye usually lightens my hair only a few shades, and it becomes reddish light brown.
Color me bad - L'OREAL'S FERIA
I'm not the biggest fan of the Feria line of hair colour. If you have dark-brown or black hair, there's slim pickings. The two darkest shades will work if your hair is a true jet or blue-black. What I need is an in-between shade between darkest brown and black.
Feria is for those who like bold shades in their hair. With this product, the whole world will know you colour your hair as there's nothing natural about some of the shades in the line.
If however, you have blonde or Titian tresses, Feria has plenty of shades to choose from.
Feria's colour doesn't last more than a fortnight before the gray shows through. For a few days, you get the usual gleam to your hair.
~ And Feria left my hair feeling dry and straw-like, as if all the moisture was leached out of it. The ends were stiff and and wiry and all the deep treatments couldn't help. It's harsh on the scalp - mine felt tight and itchy for a week afterwards.
(What IS great about Feria is the accompanying conditioner. That discovery alone made the Feria experiment worthwhile for me.)
Since then, I've gone back and forth between Clairol Nice N' Easy in Soft Black, Natural Black & Darkest Brown; L'oreal's Preference in Natural Black; Clairol's 10 Minute colour in Black and Dark Brown (again, no in-between shade bridging black and dark brown!; L'Oreal's line for dark hair in Sally Beauty Supply; Garnier's new 10 Minute colour in Soft Black - and Revlon's Colorsilk.
** And say what they will, ALL of the above have the gray's peeking out within a week or two, and that despite not washing the hair for 2 days post-colour AND using the appropriate shampoo/conditioner for colour-treated hair.
I don't plan on using Feria again unless there are one or two new shades for really dark hair instead of the lacklustre options L'Oreal offers us at present. Boring shades I can live with if my hair feels reasonably soft ~ but boring AND dry combined? I think NOT.
And THAT'S why I no longer use L'Oreal's Feria ~ because I'M worth it.
Very pretty colors fade EXTRAORDINARILY fast. Murder on the scalp.
I HATED THIS! It completely ruined my hair. I got a blond shade and ended up with yellow hair, with green and orange streaks. It fried my locks and I ended up having to chop off half of my hair. From the bottom of my shoulderblades, up to my chin.
That alone explains this product from hell.
I dyed my hair using the Rich Mahogany shade. I love it! In today's economy, one of the things that I just can't afford is the visit to the salon for color or highlights anymore. I wanted something that had some POP and this was it! It's a rich, dark brown with red undertones that show up in certain lighting. Very nice. My hair is a little dry, but my previous color was brown with bleached highlights. I'll try this line again, Feria has some nice colors to try.
I used this in 72 Caramel Kiss and found it to be a lovely, shiny, flattering shade. This haircolor applies evenly and doesn't run down the back of my neck. I like that I don't have to snip off the top of the container to apply the color after mixing it and that it has some sort of oil that you also mix into the color that improves its smell. The included gloves are thick enough to allow you to all necessary hair application movements without the slightest risk of ripping them (although they are quite large for my hands).
The included conditioner comes in a largish tube good for several weeks of once-weekly application and has a small screw-on top. The conditioner smells kind of like fabric softener and while it does not make my hair particularly soft (as opposed to say, redken all-soft) it does leave nice shine and my hair felt as strong and healthy after coloring as it did before. While I like the tube of conditioner better than the difficult-to-rip packets of conditioner included in some other box dyes, I keep dropping the tiny screw-on lid in the shower!
The haircolor shade itself is fantastic, a warm, glowing dark blonde that has garnered many unsolicited compliments. On my naturally dark blonde (with some grey) hair, it lightened it a little, warmed it up and blended away my grey in a way that looks natural, not orange-ish or bright yellow. For reference, I look better in warm reds or blondes (used henna for several years, for example). While this dye is more expensive than many other drugstore brands, I will suck it up and buy it on sale and with coupons when possible because I reallly love the color. Alas, this particular shade is only available in certain stores in my area (hope this does NOT mean it is being discontinued)!
This is my all time favorite hair color.But because I need to purchase several boxes to color my hair,I just can't justify buying it.Instead I use Revlons Colorsilk & love the results.True,they dont have as many amazing colors as Feria to choose from,but unless I cut all my hair of(which I doubt)or I stop being such a tight wad,Colorsilk is where I'll be!
I bought the blue black dye called starry night. My natural hair color is light brown & I only touch up my roots once a month. Lately I've been using nice n easy's blue black but decided to try something new. I used to dye my hair blonde & occasionally used feria & got good results. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the blue black color. Initially, my roots looked really blue. It seemed like I just dyed my roots blue. The black was second to the blue. This has been s forts for me because usually blue tints aren't too prominent in black dyed, but this is the exception. The problem is that my roots looked purely blue which FADED DRAMTICALLY. I read these reviews before trying & I wholeheartedly agree with the reviews complaining about the color fading. It fades so much it acts like a Demi perminant color. Instead of having the usually half inch of root growth, I have over an inch of outgrowth because what I touched up last month faded COMPLETELY. I think the formulation is lacking in staying power. I wanted to try the regular black dye but forget it, it's not worth t if it's just going to fade away. I do not recommend the blue-black color at all.
Back when Feria came out years ago, I was hooked. Over the years however, this product has gone down hill... at least the black shades anwyay. My hair is naturally dark brown and twice in the past years I've tried different shades of their black collection, aiming for a very rich deep outcome, and both times the colour has quickly washed out into flat light colours.... after a few washes, my hair was lighter than my natural colour!!
Sorry Feria, won't be trying you again.
