Q. Do I need to bleach or lighten my hair for your semi-permanent hair dyes?

For most of our Tintation semi-permanents, it is recommended that your hair is at least a level 5 for our darker shades. For lighter, fashion colors, it is recommended that your hair is at least a level 8, or light blonde to platinum.

 

Q. How long do your semi-permanent dyes last?

Depending on which of our semi-permanents you use, your results may vary. Your hair care routine will also affect how long the colors last.

Tintation - 8-12 washes
Express - up to 30 washes
Quick Cover - 8-12 washes

 

Q. How can I make my semi-permanent color last longer?

Here are a few steps you can take to make sure your color stays vibrant longer:

1. Minimize the amount of shampooing can dramatically increase the longevity of your color
2. When shampooing, use the cold water to wet and rinse your hair. Hot water strips color from your hair.
3. Always use a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates tend to strip color.
4. Avoid or minimize heat styling.
5. Minimize swimming in the pool and the ocean.
6. If you have leftover dye, mix it with your conditioner to deposit color every time you condition your hair.

 

Q. What is the Express - Crystal Clear (K00) and Tintation - Clear (T001) for?
