Based on my previous experience with Ezn pudding hair color in smoky ash beige, i decided to try out another shade, smoky ash lavender, because i was feeling adventurous to want to try out lavender, because I love purple, and because i had a good experience with the smoky ash beige color 🙂
My previous review on smokey ash beige here:
The Ezn Pudding hair color is: Ammonia free + Korean + comes in gorgeous ASH colors = WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR
On a side note, if one were to browse for hair dyes in a physical shop, I think they would have totally walked past the Ezn pudding hair color because well, the box looks more like jelly than hair dye!
Ezn Shaking Pudding Hair Color
Hair dye that has a pudding texture? For real?
Smoky Ash Lavender
This is the color I chose, smokey ash beige. According to the chart, it is one of the lightest shades within the Purple section.
I bought 2 boxes because I have very long hair, almost waist length.
*reusing the picture from my previous review
The box comes with:
- Mixing container
- Developer and colorant
- Plastic Ear covers
- Plastic cape (which can be adjusted at the neck!)
- Latex gloves
- Hair pack (Angel Ring Hair treatment)
My manual was in Korean, and I had to search online for english instructions, nevertheless, i have broken down the step by step process as per below:
Equal amounts of the developer and colorant are mixed in the provided jar. It was quite easy to shake.
Andddddd, true to its name, it turned out into a pudding texture and almost looks edible.
My original hair:
- Hair texture: fine
- I previously did pastel green babylights (mini highlights using bleach) in Aug’17 and it has faded into a yellowish green shade.
- I have 3 months of regrowth here

It was surprisingly quite easy to apply with our hands. I had a dye hair brush prepared in case the pudding texture was hard to apply, but I didn’t end up using the brush as the texture was easy enough to apply. Simply scoop it out from the pot and massage it into the hairs.
Pudding dye color gradually fades from beige to dark after it’s left on my hair.
We used 2 boxes for both myself and Tyrell and it was way more than enough. We even had leftovers! and my hair is pretty darn long mind you, its waist length.
My black roots became a medium brown, and my babylights have become a grey ash shade with a very very light hint of lavender.
no filter used!
No filter again
Its a bit more redish brown at the roots and then more of a yellow brown on areas that have already been dyed
Again, On Tyrell, this came out almost negligible. I’m guess its cause his hair is thicker than mine? However, he has a slight tint of red brown color under the sun which suits him quite well as he is fairly dark skinned and light hair colors don’t suit him. the color is pretty much the same as when he colored it with the smoky ash beige.
- Everything necessary for coloring is provided for. Even a cape and ear caps.
- AMMONIA FREE
- Wide range of ash shades to choose from
- Less damaging on the hair compared to other dyes
- Interesting new pudding texture and it is easier to apply than other box dyes.
- Application doesn’t require a brush or comb
- Tacky packaging that looks more like jelly than hair dye
- Color will not be as vivid if hair isn’t colored or bleached prior.
- The lavender color doesnt last very long, but it faded off into a pretty platinum ash blonde.
If you are expecting your black hair to turn out just like the advertised smokey ash lavender color, you will be disappointed. It is not possible to lighten hair to that shade without using bleach. However, if you set your expectations right, then this dye is a great dye in comparison to other box dyes out there. It is easy to apply even without a brush and everything like the cape and ear caps are provided. So if you’re looking for an ammonia free dye to tone your hair down and even out your roots, this is a great choice.
Good news for those of you that have bleached hair! The dye actually turns out pretty well on bleached hair, as seen on my bleached babylights. I wish the lavender would have lasted longer but I still really love the faded shade of silver ash.
Note: They also have a hair bleach version that can be used prior to using the hair dye for those that wish to achieve a light ash shade.
