If you watched last night's Emmy Awards, then you probably saw Christina Hendrick's signature red hair, which always looks amazing! I tweeted that everyone should go "red" this fall, but realistically speaking we all know that the best haircolor for you is the one that complements your skin tone and works for your lifestyle.
And with that said, let's review the basics of haircolor. It falls into four categories: temporary, semipermanent, demipermanent, and permanent.
Coats the hair shaft and is easily removed by shampooing. Examples include: color rinses or color-enhancing shampoos.
Partially penetrates the hair shaft and slowly fades with shampooing. It doesn't lighten the hair and is usually used to enhance fading haircolor.
Doesn't lighten hair and, like semipermanent haircolor, it is used to enhance fading haircolor. It penetrates the hair shaft and lasts longer than semipermanent haircolor.
Used to lighten hair and cover grey. It remains in the hair shaft until the growth of new hair.
Any questions? Love your hair.
