How to Color Your Hair Using L’Oréal Paris Féria
If you’re ready to get your DIY on, you’re in the right place. Follow our step-by-step tutorial for using L’Oréal Paris Féria and caring for color-treated hair post-dye job.
Step 1: Pick your shade. Choosing the right hair color for your mane can be overwhelming. To help make your decision easier, try looking at images of celebrities with enviable hair colors and read our article, How to Find the Best Hair Color for Your Skin Tone, for ideas. As we told you, L’Oréal Paris Féria comes in a large variety of shades—you’re bound to find one you love! Just remember that if you’re going from a dark hair color to a lighter one, then you’ll have to bleach your hair—and the more drastic the change, the more work it may take to achieve your desired color.
Step 2: Color your hair. Once you’ve been thoroughly inspired and settled on your new color, it’s time to dye. Break out your L’Oréal Paris Féria kit and follow the included instructions for best results.
Step 3: Switch up your hair care routine. Make a quick trip to your shower and start pushing your old shampoo and conditioner to the side once you’re done dyeing your hair with L’Oréal Paris Féria. Color-treated hair requires special care. Stick with a system of products specifically formulated for colored hair, like the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recover Mask. Gently massage the shampoo into wet hair, then rinse out. Follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing out. Once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner for the mask, leaving it on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing out.
Step 4: Allow your hair to air dry. Put down the heat tools and give your color-treated hair a break post-L’Oréal Paris Féria dye job. After your next shower, towel dry your hair to remove excess water. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Wave Swept Spray for texturized waves, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Ruffled Body Mousse for voluminous body, or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Undone Style Cream for a trendy bedhead inspired style. After working your hairstyling product pick through your hair, let your locks finish air drying.
Step 5: Temporarily hide gray roots, then repeat. Certain things seem to always sneak up on you, and having to re-do your roots can be one of them. If your new gray growth catches you by surprise, tide yourself over with the help of a root touch up spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up, which lasts one shampoo. Make sure to have a box of L’Oréal Paris Féria on hand so that you can color your hair again when you’re ready to do so.
