Types of hair color dyes
Permanent Tints :
If a permanent tint is used correctly, you will always achieve a beautiful effect and semi-permanent tints can be used to maintain these permanent treatments, adding condition. The permanent color will penetrate the inner core of the hair strand and will not wash away as with a semi-permanent color that will wash out after a number of shampoos.
Semi-Permanent Colors :
Semi-permanent color give your hair a higher shine and enhance condition, but they won’t lift natural hair color. Also, a semi-permanent tint will not cover large amount of grey hair (more than 50%).
Semi-Permanent Vegetable Colors:
Contain only vegetable extracts and natural ingredients, so no color is stripped from your hair. It is similar to henna but it doesn’t coat the hair (adds shine though). This color sits on the hair’s surface and will wash out after about 8 shampoos.
