How long does professional semi-permanent hair color last?

Enough for them to be able to show it off, especially in the first two weeks, but not long enough for them to get annoyed by it. It usually lasts up to 6-8 shampoos, fading away little by little, depending on how often they wash their hair.

During this time, in order to preserve the professional semi-permanent hair color as long as possible, they can consider using specific products for colored hair, which are specifically formulated to prevent fading.

Also, dry shampoo can be a great option. I mean, dry shampoo is ALWAYS a great option, but in this case especially it can preserve professional semi-permanent hair color a little longer.

Is professional semi-permanent hair color safe?

Absolutely. Professional semi-permanent hair color is not only temporary, but also gentler on the hair. It doesn’t have either ammonia nor bleaching ingredients in it, which makes it less aggressive on the hair.

While permanent hair dye pigments penetrate the hair and settle deep in its core, professional semi-permanent hair color only coats the outer hair shaft.

They won’t get as big of a change as they would with permanent dye, that’s true: they can play with shades, light effects, depth and volume, at most; but they can definitely enjoy the best of both worlds, at least for a solid 8 weeks.

Thin hair can especially benefit from the additional pigments, because it instantly provides more depth and volume; this means less need for volumizing products and more time enjoying hair that looks healthy and full.
