Enter semi-permanent hair dye.emi-permanent hair dye is the chance to experiment with a bold new look, or an exciting colour without the pressure of salon shade matching or regular maintenance.
Semi-permanent hair dye is your change to be bold with hair colour without dedicating yourself to an eye-catching shade longterm.

Permanent dye works by opening the cuticle of the hair with ammonia or bleach, and then depositing the colour inside the hair shaft before sealing it up. It is over-processing at this stage of the dye process that can cause hair to dry out and weaken. But semi-permanent hair dye only colours hair at its surface level, coating the outside rather than penetrating deeper into the hair shaft. This is why the hair colour fades over time and with each wash.
Semi-permanent hair colour can last for around 4-6 weeks – so if you plan of being rid of it the very next day proceed with the utmost caution and maybe steer clear altogether. In that time you can top up on your colour to make it bolder and last longer, or simply continue to let it fade with every wash. If you're looking for something even more short term, there are always 'wash in wash out' colours in the form of drops or sprays, these can last for just one day, and can be just as easily removed as applied.
So if you're feeling inspired to opt in to semi-permanent hair dye scroll on down. We have rounded up some of the best semi-permanent hair dyes for you try now and love for, well, as long as you like:
