Instagram, TV or reality events, pretty much everyone is sporting coloured hair these days. It has become a fashion favourite of girls to add a sparkling burst of delight to their overall look with a spectrum of colours that makes them an Insta viral figure. The only complain is, permanent hair colours tend to be very expensive and the damage they cause to hair is no secret.
However, there’s a simple solution to this: semi-permanent hair colour.
Why semi-permanent hair colour is better?
Semi-permanent hair colour is designed to deliver colour on the surface of the hair and brighten the mane. It does not penetrate the cortex of the hair like the permanent hair dye. Therefore, the semi-permanent hair colours add the same level of colour as permanent products without causing any damage.

How to apply a semi-permanent hair colour?
First, wash your hair with a colour clarifying shampoo so that all the buildup and oil are removed from your hair. Remember you do not have to condition your hair. Brush out all the tangles and knots and blow-dry your hair completely.
Now apply Vaseline on your ears and skin along the hairline to prevent skin from getting stained. Wear gloves and put a dollop of hair dye between your palms. Massage your hair with the dye in such a way as if you are shampooing it. Now leave the colour for processing for the duration as indicated on the box.
At last, wash your hair until the water runs clear. Then shampoo and condition your hair with colour-safe products.
We hope you now have a fair idea of which semi-permanent hair colour you want to buy, and how to apply the colour right way.
