Temporary Hair Color

The way it works, temporary hair color penetrates your hairs’ outer cuticle to gain access to the hair’s cortex.

Variety, they say, is the spice of life…same goes for your looks. And there’s nothing more profound that affects your looks than your hair, or more specifically, the color of your hair. Thankfully, in this century we can decide what color we want our hair to be, but why go for a permanent hair color when you can enjoy the variety and fun that a temporary hair color offers you?

Also known as wash out hair color, they are a type of hair dye that, as the name implies, washes out in just one shampoo application! Yes, your eyes didn’t read that wrong! This is convenient if you want to try out a new hair color but not ready to commit in the long run—or want to rock a fun new shade for a night out. Think of wash out hair color as a quick fix for your hair color needs. Before you decide to commit, here are a few points to note.


The way it works, temporary hair color penetrates your hairs’ outer cuticle to gain access to the hair’s cortex. They can last for over a month and tend to fade progressively. An interesting thing about this is that these colors don’t contain bleach; therefore, they cannot lighten your natural shade. Can I get a hallelujah, somebody?

You can’t deny that changing your hair color can be an overwhelming prospect. It could look awesome but, what if, after hours at the salon and significant amounts of money spent, it looks terrible? That is probably the worst thing to happen ever. For those unwilling to take this risk, the wash out hair color options are there to save the day, out in a shampoo wash and then you have another hair plumbing as easily as you had and removed the first. There’s nothing better than that. 

Temporary hair colors give good results in a very easy to use manner.  You can use them straight from the applicator, and they don’t have to be pre-mixed. 


As expected, temporary hair colors will fade with shampooing and exposure to air. This means they need to be reapplied frequently, and this could be damaging to your hair.

Due to frequent overlapping, temporary colors can leave you with darker hair ends and lighter hair roots. This goes against the fundamental rule of actual hair color, which is darker roots and lighter ends.

With so many hair color styles making their way into the beauty scene, there’s a high chance you will develop some severe hair color envy. And what better way to taste from all the fantastic options on display than with temporary hair color?  You may be thinking that there’s no way you could try them all without ending up with some severely damaged hair. I hear you, but wash out hair colors are a great, non-damaging alternative to your regular traditional hair dyes. You couldn’t get a better option.
