There are number of factors that impact the longevity of the temporary hair color, including but not limited to hair texture, natural hair color, hair type, hair length and health of your hair.

The entire temporary hair coloring process is simple:

  • Hair color is applied on the hair shaft, which is a temporary coating on the outer surface of the hair cuticle.
  • The chemical coating is kept on your hair until your hair absorbs the hair color.
  • The color is applied without developer, which starts fading after 1 or 2 hair washes (depends on how porous is your hair).
