Permanent Hair Dyes

Permanent Hair Dyes & Colours

Permanent hair dye is commonly used within hair salons. Aside from cutting, you'll be often asked to transform clients hair colour. Most of the time it will be very straight forward if you're using the right tools.

A colour chart will help confirm the colour your client is hoping to achieve, and it will provide you with the formula for creation. You'll also sometimes need bleach, activators and foil to get the job done.

Colour is deeply penetrated in the hair follicles, offering a permanent solution. If a client is wanting something short term, consider offering them a semi dye solution.

The Difference Between Semi-Permanent & Permanent Hair Dye

Before committing to a colour, it's important to see if it's a semi or a permanent hair dye. Semi permanent hair colours are direct dyes that often only last a few washes. Generally speaking, most vibrant colours are considered to be semis as the colour won't remain for more than a few weeks.

A little more care may need to be taken in the preservation in colour which some customers don't have time for. Additionally, a client may become frustrated and complain a few weeks later if their colour has faded.

Permanent colours will change the structure of the hair to change colour for a long period of time. It's longer-lasting than a semi dye, and will easily cover greys. It does require an activator to ensure that the colour is transformed but will provide full hair coverage. It can come in an array of colours to lighten, darken or change the overall tone of the hair. Speak thoroughly with the client to understand what they expect from your service to help them achieve the best colour.

Your Questions Answered

Despite the name, permanent colour lasts between four to eight weeks. The lifespan depends on your chosen shade and the condition of the hair. However, all permanent colours will eventually fade and grow out after several weeks.

It’s almost impossible to avoid a small amount of damage when using permanent colour. This is because colouring lifts the cuticle to deposit a series of harsh chemicals. Although ammonia-free colour is one of the healthiest options, remember to stockpile plenty of restorative treatments just in case.

As a simple rule, you can expect darker colours to last longer than lighter colours. This is because lighter colours usually require bleach, which causes pigments to fade quickly. Relying on inferior products is another pitfall, although you can relax knowing our collection offers plenty of high-quality options.
