Hair has great social importance. It accentuates your look further. You also want your hair to look different and nice every time. So, you color your hair, try different haircuts, hairstyles and various other hair treatments. Your hair is put through so many chemicals in the due course, which ultimately makes it brittle and lusterless. Now, coloring your hair is normally perceived as being permanent and involves the use of chemicals to enable easy combing and styling. But you have those crazy days when you want to color your hair blood-red for a Saturday night party and want your normal hair color on Monday. Is that possible? Yes! Temporary hair dyes are used for this purpose. Since these hair dyes do not penetrate the outer cuticle layer, they do not cause much damage to your hair either. Many use these dyes to cover their gray hair as well, since they are afraid that permanent hair dye can cause hair damage to a great extent, while others use it on a special occasion to get a desirable hair color.
About Temporary Hair Dyes
Temporary hair dyes are usually available in various forms like gels, mousse, sprays, creams, foam and shampoos. They have less chemicals as compared to permanent hair dye, since the color is not meant to remain. Temporary hair dyes work on your hair and not the roots, they do not penetrate the outer cuticle of your hair but rather get absorbed by the hair shaft to give you the desired color. They are used by people who love to change their hair color to match their outfits or moods, since the color is easily washed out in a few shampoos. Temporary hair dyes are also a good way to determine if the hair color suits you before you permanently dye your hair that color. Even if these products are only absorbed by the hair shaft, the use of wrong products can cause hair damage. Therefore, it is very important to choose the best temporary hair dye brand, since some products have harsh chemicals that can cause serious hair damage.
