Dyed hair sort of screams, “I am fun!” when anyone sees you. Maybe that’s why in very formal settings, depending on the colour, it’s not really allowed. Before you decide to change the colour of your hair, you need to know the various options at your feet before taking the plunge. Here are different kinds of dyes that you can use to get the job done.
1. Temporary Dye
These dyes do not contain peroxide or ammonia, so there is no color-lifting involved when these dyes are applied to the hair. Temporal dye is perfect if you work in a formal setting but you want to have fun over the weekend with your hair before work on Monday. It’s also perfect if you want to explore with different colours and not committing to just one. These don’t damage your hair and you can wash them out anytime.
2. Semi-Permanent Dye
If you want that temporary colour to last a little more, you should go for this type of dye. These generally last for around eight washes. An at-home semi-permanent dye can be a great option for gray hair coverage when you know you can’t get to the salon right away. If your hair is thin, it would retain the dye more.
3. Demi-Permanent Dye
These dyes are mixed with a developer, unlike the semi-permanent one. This enables it to penetrate the hair shaft instead of simply coating it. Demi-permanent dyes generally lasts through 25 washes.
4. Permanent Dye
If you want to change the colour of your hair permanently, this is it for you. These contain a much higher concentration of peroxide and ammonia. Even though this color will fade slightly over time, the overall effect is permanent.
With all these information, go crazy with the coloured hair options.
