April 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #133: Types of Hair Color

Tip of the Week

Before you take the plunge and dye your hair Outrageous Cherry, you might want to experiment a bit with a form of hair color that's not permanent. Hair colors come in five types:

• Temporary hair color lasts from one shampoo to the next and is deposited on the outside of the hair shaft

• Semi-temporary hair color lasts from 4-6 shampoos. It usually does not contain ammonia and doesn't have a developer

• Demi-permanent hair color usually contains little or no ammonia and uses a low peroxide developer—the color lasts about 6 weeks and gradually fades back to the natural shade

• Semi-Permanent hair color usually contains some ammonia and uses a developer of 10 to 20 vol.

• Permanent hair color formulas change the natural hair color and require maintenance to new hair growth after 4 to 6 weeks—that means touching up those roots!
