The Various Hair Coloring Products  

 

Hair Coloring Products  are usually of four categories
 
a.) Temporary  b.) Semi-permanent c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent d.) Permanent.
 
All products but temporary color require a patch test before application. The idea is to determine whether the client is allergic to the product.
 
a.) Temporary Hair Coloring Product In this product the pigment molecules are large. So it does not penetrate the cuticle layer. And that allows only a coating action that may be removed by shampooing.
 
Acid dyes are used to coat on the hair surface. Acid dyes have low affinity to hair. And can be removed after a shampoo.
 
The temporary hair coloring products are typically used to give brighter and more vibrant shades or colors. For example orange or red.
 
The various product forms in which temporary hair coloring products are available include Rinses, shampoos, gels, etc.
 
 
 
b.)Semi permanent  Hair Coloring Product</a> This product deposits color on the hair shaft without lightening it. Having smaller molecules enables it to penetrate the hair shaft.
 
It does not have any developer. And may be used for heat for penetration.
 
It remains intact up to 8-14 shampoos.
 

c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent Hair Coloring Product It uses a mild, creamy developer of a lower volume than permanent color.
 

 

There is an ammonia substitute called MEA in some demi-products. MEA helps with penetration and

 can lift natural color.

 
Demi-permanent hair coloring product penetrates the hair shaft in a slight manner. It makes hair shiny and covers/blends some gray.
 
d.) Permanent Hair Coloring Product This product, mixed with developer, remains in the hair shaft til new hair growth occurs.
 
Its uses are matching, lightening and covering gray hair.
 
Usually it contains ammonia, oxidative tints, and peroxide.
 
The allergic reaction coming from hair dye is most likely occur each time one dyes his hair. And that will probably get worse every time.
