When following a good aftercare routine, Crazy Color semi-permanent hair dye will last approximately 10-12 washes. However, this can vary from person to person based on the porosity of your hair and its overall health. Your colored hair will be at its most vivid as soon as you’ve finished the coloring process, and over time it will gradually fade. This is one of the benefits of using semi-permanent hair dye as you can test out different colors without the long-term commitment! Follow our tips below to increase the longevity of your new Crazy Color.
How To Make Semi-Permanent Hair Dye Last Longer
Wash Hair With Cold Water
To keep your new hair color vivid and bright, we advise that you wash your hair with cold water (as cold as is bearable). Cold water keeps the hair cuticles closed and therefore stops the color running out and fading too soon. Warm water is the enemy!
Shampoo As Little As Possible
Each time you wash your hair, the semi-permanent hair dye will lose color. We therefore suggest that you limit the number of times you wash your hair each week to keep your hair looking vibrant. However, when you come to washing your hair, we recommend using one of our vibrant shampoo’s which are designed to maintain vibrant color. These are available in 4 vibrant shades, which means your chosen color match can be used across any shade of red, blue, pink and purple Crazy Color shades.
Use Sulphate-Free Conditioner
Make sure you use a salt and sulphate-free conditioner to keep your hair feeling healthy and hydrated. Check out our Rainbow Care Deep Conditionerwhich helps maintain the strength, shine, and suppleness of bleached and colored hair.
Too much direct sunlight will strip the semi-permanent hair dye from your hair and will result in fading. Do your best to protect your new color by limiting direct exposure to the sun. If you’re on holiday, keep yourself in the shade as much as possible to keep your hair color looking vivid and bright.
Similar to direct sunlight, the chlorine of a swimming pool doesn’t mix well with semi-permanent hair dye and will strip the color from your hair.
Avoid High Heat Styling
This might be disappointing to hear, but we recommend avoiding all high heat styling if possible – put those straighteners away! However, if you need to apply heat to achieve your desired look, use a styling tool with heat control and set to low. We also suggest having a look for some no heat styling tips.
