DEMI-PERMANENT HAIR COLORDemi-permanent formulas are ideal for enhancing, refreshing or darkening hair color (either natural or previously colored). These formulas generally last up to 6 weeks, so they offer less commitment than permanent hair color.
Common uses include:
- Refreshing previously tinted hair
- Color correction
Clairol Professional crème demi permanente hair color is ammonia-free and mixes with a low-volume developer (1:1 ratio) to gently penetrate the cortex for deposit that lasts up to 6 weeks. Because the developer is dedicated and mild, the hair remains in optimal condition. Demi-permanent hair color is the fastest growing color category in the industry because of its versatility. It is excellent for glossing or for refreshing previously tinted hair for added vibrancy and shine, and is essential for color correction.
Clairol Professional crème demi permanente is the choice for refreshing the ends of previously tinted hair. Permanent hair color is applied to the regrowth only; then crème demi permanente is applied to the ends. Formulate 1-2 Levels lighter than target for a balanced result. Additionally, the use of Clear Mix Tones ensures an even tonal deposit on previously tinted, often faded and porous ends.
In the past, “soap caps” were done to refresh permanently tinted hair. This technique incorporates the permanent hair color formula used at the regrowth, water and shampoo. The results often become drab, muddy or browned out and the repeated exposure of ammonia to alkalized hair causes damage. However, crème demi permanente features SOY4PLEX, which provides conditioning and healthy shine. It is available in 13 intermixable shades in 3 Tonal Pillars: Neutral, Ash, and Gold. Plus, there are 2 Mix Tones: Warm and Clear, for endless formulation possibilities.
