If you are considering enhancing your hair color, making it darker, or improving the look of gray but don’t want a long-term commitment, trying a semi-permanent hair color is a good option. Semi-permanent hair color lasts about 4-6 weeks, and fades gradually as you shampoo your hair. It’s available in numerous natural colors, but also comes in today’s trendy hues. Unlike its permanent counterpart, semi-permanent hair color doesn’t contain bleach or peroxide, so it won’t lighten hair. But it also doesn’t require mixing, so all you have to do is open the bottle, apply the color, and enjoy your new look.
