Are you on the lookout for a new hair colour? If you have never dyed your hair before or just love to try out lots of new colours then semi-permanent hair dye could be the perfect duration for you. This type of hair dye lasts longer than a wash-in wash-out dye and is more likely to give brighter colour results but won’t stay around for as long as a permanent hair dye.

Crazy Color doesn’t last quite as long as some of the semi permanent hair dye colors at up to 8 washes. These vibrant colours come in both deep, rich shades and bright, fun colours. If you love all the candy inspired looks that are emerging then this could be the brand for you. Like many of our brands, these are available in four packs so you can be sure you won’t run out of dye halfway through a job.
With any semi permanent hair dye for dark hair, we recommend bleaching your hair first for the best results. This will help the colour look more vibrant. If you are looking for just a hint of colour then you could try applying the dye straight to your natural colour but be aware the results will differ.
We also think it is a great idea to use a touch of toner to remove any of the brassy tones left by bleach or other remaining hair colours. This is especially useful if you already have dyed hair as this will ensure you are working with a blank canvas.
When applying your brand new semi-permanent hair dye make sure to read the instructions as every brand is different. It is also important to check the ingredients and perform a patch test. This serves two purposes. First it will help you to see if this is truly the colour you want before you commit to full coverage. It will also determine if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Semi-permanent hair dye lasts longer than temporary dyes because it pierces deeper into the hair whereas a temporary hair dye will sit on top of the hair. This is why it is important to avoid using heat on your dyed hair. The colour will be more likely to leak if you wash your hair in very hot water or use items such as hair straighteners or a curling tongs.
If you are still feeling unsure about semi-permanent hair dye, then why not check out our temporary hair dye spray. You can test a burst of colour in your hair to see if you like it. If you decide you want to go for full coverage that will last longer than one wash then go ahead and dare to try a semi-permanent hair dye!
Some of our most popular colours are red, blue and pink but if you are feeling daring why not go for a fluorescent orange, aqua green or deep purple. Whatever you decide we are sure your new semi-permanent hair dye will look awesome.
