Temporary Hair Color

How Does Semi-Permanent Hair Color Work?

  • Large pre-formed color molecules adhere to the outer cuticle layer.
  • The color is removed by the next shampoo, depending on the hair's porosity.
  • No developer is used with temporary color.
  • Safe for immediate use after relaxer.

Temporary hair color works on the surface of hair to add sheer color and it typically only lasts 1-2 shampoos. When applied to pre-lightened or extremely porous hair, temporary hair color may penetrate further into the cortex and stain the hair shaft.

For semi-permanent results use heat. Cover hair with plastic cap and process under warm dryer for up to 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo.
