Things You Must Know Before Using a Temporary Hair Colour

It is always better to do some research and understand what you’re going to put your hair through. While using a temporary hair colour, you should find out how they behave the way they do and their basic nature.

Temporary hair colours wash out fast, as these are ammonia-free, and therefore only colour the outer shaft of the hair. So, if you’re looking for a more permanent hair colour change, this may not be the best hair colour choice for you.

You might not get the exact hair dye shown on the pack! Do not assume that the colour you get will be exactly the same as the colour shown on the pack. Be it a bright red hair colour, bold blue hair colour, exotic blonde hair colour or a classy grey hair colour, what you see on the pack might not be what you actually get. The pictures on the colouring packs are mere illustrations and the actual results may be a lot different. Therefore, choose the hair colour based on a shade scale of 1-10, where 1 is the darkest and 10 is the lightest. Also, before choosing a colour, make sure it does not go against your skin tone, or else it will make your skin look dull and faded.

Don’t forget to protect your hairline, clothes, and home! Before colouring your hair, always remember to cover your clothes as well as the place to avoid stains. As for the hairline, it is recommended to cover your hairline with petroleum jelly.

Do a patch test as well as a strand test first! A patch test is necessary to make sure your scalp is not allergic to the hair dye. If, after the patch test, your skin experiences itching, redness, or swelling, discontinue use of the temporary hair colour as it may have adverse effects on your scalp. A strand test is important so that you don't end up with a hair colour you don't like!

Shampoo your hair before applying hair colour. You should always wash your hair with shampoo before colouring it to get rid of any oils and greasiness on your scalp. After washing, make sure to dry it thoroughly so that the colour can be evenly spread into your hair.

Now that you've got the colour you’ve always wanted, there are certain things you should know on maintaining the vibrant colour and taking care of your locks.

  1. Do not shampoo newly coloured hair. Temporary hair dyes do not last longer than a wash. Therefore, it is recommended to not shampoo newly coloured hair if you want the colour to last more than a day.
  2. Wash your hair until the water runs clear. When you’re getting rid of the colour, wash thoroughly. This is necessary because if the colour is still in your hair, it might end up staining your clothes, skin, and home.
  3. Do not wash your hair with hot water or blow dry your hair after using temporary hair colours. The heat from the blow drier and hot water will make your hair frizzy. Wash your hair with normal cool water.
  4. Resist the temptation to run your fingers through the coloured hair strands. The colour might stain your fingers when you touch it. So it’s better to let the colour be.
  5. Use a colour-boosting hair gloss. It will make your hair look shiny and give that fine salon-like glossy finish.

How Do I Prepare My Hair For Colouring?

‘Preparing your hair for colouring’ isn’t as difficult a task as it seems. To prepare your hair for colouring, all you need to do is wash your hair with shampoo to remove any oils or greasiness that may build up in your hair, and then dry your hair thoroughly. It is recommended to not use a hair dryer as it may lead to a frizzy mane, but the drier the hair is, the better the dye will soak in. ‘That’s it?’, you ask? Yes, that is all! Quite simple and easy, no?

What Is The Best Way To Apply a Temporary Hair Colour?

The best way to apply colour to your hair is using your fingers. Be it highlights, soft balayages, lowlights or even money pieces, it is always better to apply the colour to your hair with your own hands. This will help spread the colour evenly throughout your natural hair colour. Also, if you want to get a global hair colour, we’d recommend you to start colouring from the roots.
