Festival-ready hair: L’Oreal Paris Colorista Spray One-Day Colour

So anyone else have major Coachella FOMO?

I’ve been to EDC Las Vegas, but Coachella has been on my bucket list for the past few years.  Every time this part of the year rolls around I always say “okay, next year for sure” and then it never happens (to be fair I was actually in LA this time last year, and it sucks they don’t do one-day passes!).  My friends and I have been chatting about it, and maybe next year will be my time to go (*fingers crossed*).

Anyways Coachella is typically the kickoff to festival season and in case you haven’t noticed, all the brands are rolling out their festival-inspired collections. First it was Too Faced, then Tarte (their Mermaid collection is coming up soon on the blog), but if you want to rock the festival trend easily and at home, then L’Oreal Paris has you covered.

L'Oreal Paris Colorista Spray One-Day Colour

Okay, so I’ve chatted about their Colorista line of temporary hair colour, and they actually sent me the one-day sprays last year. I’ve had these sitting on my “desk” (aka dining room table) for the past six months as it wasn’t really an appropriate time to bust these out… until now.  I absolutely adore the Colorista temp hair dye, but since I work in an office, it would be nice to rock the pink hair on weekends only. Well, now I can!

Available in 10 on-trend fun shades, the L’Oreal Paris Colorista One-Day Spray is a temporary hair colour that washes out with one shampoo. Unlike the original Colorista, this is a spray that allows for a quick and easy application that instantly transforms your hair colour.  The formula contains a white micro-powder to deliver a visibly pigmented colour, so if you’re a brunette that wants to be a rose gold, you can totally do it with these.  The colour dries quickly, meaning that even if you’re short on time, you can totally rock the unicorn hair trend in an instant.

I haven’t tried every colour in the line, however, I did find that the ones that I did try worked well.  The only complaint I have is that it tends to stain the clothes you wear underneath, so definitely wear something you don’t care about (I still have purple on my robe that is refusing to wash out), and it also gets on your hands, so wear gloves (as you can see in the photo below, I obviously did not follow my own advice).  Once you spray the colour on, you’re supposed to leave it for a minute before brushing your hair.  When I tried the hot pink, pastel pink and silver on my hair below, it did end up getting pink on my brush as well.

As for wearability, the colour is very bold, however, your hair doesn’t feel as soft as the regular version of Colorista.  You can definitely feel that this is a spray product as my hair felt very starchy.  Also, in terms of washing it out, I had to apply shampoo twice and even then I still had some pink left over in my hair (which looked more rose gold). I would say this comes out in two-to-three washes, not one, especially if you have blonde hair.

Like I said, I love the original Colorista, however, sporting teal hair for the amount of time it takes to wash out (about a month since I don’t wash my hair that often) isn’t the most professional look. With these sprays you can be a wild child on the weekend and an office queen for the weekdays, and no one will know the wiser.
