A hair dye kit.
Semi-permanent hair dye is a type of dye used for hair coloring that starts to fade in about four to five weeks. Since the dye usually only covers a small part of the hair follicle, most colorists don’t recommend it for stubborn gray hair. This type of hair dye does not lighten the hair, but it changes some shades or enhances the natural color.
Henna can be used to make a reddish hair dye.
Most types of semi-permanent hair dye are made from organic material, including fruit and henna extracts. It’s different from permanent hair dye because it doesn’t need to be mixed with an activator and has little to no peroxide. Other companies use extracts from flowers, vegetables, and herbs like turmeric and ginseng. Some people prefer semi-permanent dyes because they are more likely to contain all-natural ingredients that are considered better for the environment.
Semi-permanent hair dye lasts up to five weeks.
Semi-permanent hair dye manufacturers often package the dye in aerosol or cream containers. People using the products are advised to test a small amount on the scalp before using it to check for skin irritation. If irritation does not occur, the user should spray the product on the hair or apply the cream with a brush and let it dry. After the dye has remained on the hair for twenty to thirty minutes, the person should rinse the hair and use the deep conditioner for dyed hair that comes with the package.
The semi-permanent color lasts for about six weeks and lightens after washing.
As the dye is semi-permanent and stays for at least four or five washes, it is considered a coloring product. When someone is using it in their bathroom, it is necessary to clean the sink and any other places the paint touches as quickly as possible to avoid stains. If ink comes into contact with the skin, it can also temporarily darken the area or cause a rash, so it should be washed off immediately. The dye kit usually includes a pair of gloves to wear if using cream application to prevent your hands from becoming irritated.
Semi-permanent dyes are good for enhancing your natural hair color.
When choosing a semi-permanent hair dye, it’s important to choose the right color to avoid a shade that might be too dark for your hair or skin tone. Dye boxes have a color chart on the back that shows whether the dye is suitable for warm tones, cool tones or neutral tones. In color, the “tone” indicates the degree to which the color will lighten the client’s normal hair color. If a person decides they don’t like semi-permanent paint once it’s applied, they should wait until the paint comes off or go to a professional stylist to have the paint removed.
