Jun 2, 2008
There are so many hair color products on the market that it makes trying to fix one little hair problem nearly impossible. There are so many different colors to choose from and a million and one companies telling you that their formula is the best. This makes it incredibly difficult to decide which color and manufacturer to buy from. Dying your hair is very fun and exciting, so do not let all of the hair color products overwhelm you.

Changing your hair color is one of the quickest and easiest ways to recharge your physical appearance and feel good about yourself. There are a lot of different levels of dying your hair depending on the lightness or darkness of the color that is reflected or perceived by the eye. Many women also use changing their hair color as a good excuse to update their wardrobe. When you change the color of your hair you will also want to change the colors of the clothes you wear. So, dying your hair can be a great reason to do a little clothes shopping too.

There are three different categories of hair color products: temporary, permanent and semi permanent dyes. Temporary hair color products have very large pigment molecules which makes them unable to penetrate the cuticle layer. This allows the color to be removed by shampooing alone. Semi permanent hair dyes are formulated to deposit color onto the shaft of the hair without having to lighten it. What makes semi permanent dyes different from temporary tints is that they are able to penetrate the hair shaft which makes the color stay longer. Typically, a semi permanent color last for about eight to fourteen shampoos before it starts to come out. Permanent hair color products have an oxidative dye that also uses ammonia and peroxide to lift and deposit the new color deep. This type of hair dye penetrates very deep into the hair shaft which is what enables the color to stay in for a long time. This is the best method to use for people who are looking to dye their gray hair.

Whether you are looking for a permanent of semi permanent hair color product, it is important to do your research before making a purchase. When you decide how long and how drastic you want your hair color change to be, then you are ready to start shopping around for the perfect product.
