Three Things to Know About Semi-Permanent, Vegan Hair Color
Kick up your hue with vibrant dye or a subtle leave-in.
Tinting your mane with a semi-permanent dye is an excellent way to change up your look and keep life interesting. When that dye is vegan, even better. Vegan hair dye contains zero animal-derived ingredients and is produced without animal testing. Here’s how to get the shade you want.
If you find a color you like but want a more pastel version of it, buy a dilluter or just mix in some white conditioner until you get to the shade you want. Make sure you’ve got the right supplies—e.g. rubber mixing bowls and brushes—if you plan to go that route.
Color-depositing conditioner is a great way to maintain already-dyed hair. If you’ve tinted your mane and don’t want it to fade, add a color conditioner to your rotation to keep it vibrant. Just note that using a color conditioner that’s lighter than your natural color won’t change your hue, but it’ll still moisturize!
Because semi-permanent color sits on top of the hair shaft (instead of penetrating it), to go lighter than your natural shade (e.g. you’re a dark brunette who wants lilac locks), you’ll first need to bleach your strands, which can be tricky. Make sure to do your research first and definitely have someone help you—it’s easy to damage your tresses with bleach and even easier to end up a brassy orange.
