3. How Long Will The Semi-Permanent Colors Last?

4. Can We Mix Two Colors?

Yes, yes and yes! That’s the best part. Our semi-permanent hair colors can be mixed with each other to create more vibrant and unique shades. Because we all know basic is boring. Let your imagination go wild as our semi-permanent hair colors allow you to play around with colors.

Mix two shades in a bowl and apply the custom shade to your hair. The shade you get depends on the proportion of the mixing of colors.

5. How Do You Make The Color Last Longer?

While coloring your hair, the first question that comes to your mind is which color to choose. Then comes the next obvious question' how to make the color last longer?' Don't worry! We can help you with that. Here’s how you do it!

  1. Avoid hot water showers as they can cause the opening of the cuticles, thus stripping off the hair color.
  2. Say goodbye to styling tools, as heat can rip the color from your hair, making your bright and vibrant hair color look dull.
  3. Use Shampoos and conditioners with a color lock formula. This prevents hair color from bleeding, making it last longer.
  4. Limiting your hair washing session to once or twice a week also helps retain hair color longer.
  5. Conditioning your hair is a must as it boosts the shine and locks the color, thus retaining the color for longer.
  6. Protect your hair from the sun by applying a UV filter hair serum. Even the sun dulls your hair.

6. How Much Lift Does The Hair Need For The Color To Show?

If your hair is rich black in color, you'd need a significant amount of lift i.e., about 4 to 5 levels. Black pigment on hair is super strong, which is why a substantial amount of lifting is a must to get rid of black color (natural hair color) for the new color to catch on.

7. How Many Tubes Do I Need To Color My Entire Hair

Ideally, one tube should be enough to color your entire hair. But again, it depends on the length and thickness of your hair. If your hair is like that of Rapunzels, you’ll obviously need more than one tube.

8. Is It Possible To Cover Grey Hair 100% With Semi-Permanent Hair Color?

No. It isn’t possible to cover grey hair with our semi-permanent hair colors.
Grey hair is less cooperative when it comes to hair coloring. Grey hair strands are coarse and devoid of natural oil. Because they're super rough by nature, it's tough for the color to catch on. Coloring your greys might prove to be damaging too.

9. Is Hair Color Best Applied On Dry Hair Or Wet Hair?

Hair color is best applied on dry hair. Color hair that has been washed 24 to 48 hours prior for the best results. Applying color on wet hair is honestly such a waste of time.

10. How Long Should I Keep The Color To Show Its Vibrancy?

You should keep your hair color for 30 minutes to allow the hair color pigments to be deposited on the hair, making your hair color look more vibrant as ever!

11. Does semi-permanent hair color wash out completely?

Semi-permanent hair colors begin to fade after about 8 to 10 washes. The fade of colorisma colors are just insane! Wearing a Semi-permanent hair color is like being in a short term relationship. You know it isn't forever. You gotta enjoy it as long as it lasts.

12. Is semi permanent hair color the same as a toner?

No. yes, they both change the appearance of your hair color. But they're different products. Toner is a liquid formula that is applied to colored hair to adjust the color. It is also applied on pre-lightened hair to neutralize brassy yellow or orange undertones caused by bleaching carelessly. A hair color, as we already know, deposits color into the outer layer of the hair cuticle to alter the natural hair color entirely!

13. Is semi permanent hair color better than permanent?

The truth is, the two can't be compared. Both are brilliant in their own ways. It's what you want that matters. Semi-Permanent hair colors are meant for a short term commitment. When they're from Colorisma, they're damage-proof and gorgeously vibrant. On the other side, Permanent hair colors stay for a longer period of time and there's scope for extreme damage.
