Types of Green Hair Dyes
Permanent Hair Dyes:
These hair dyes penetrate deeper into the hair shaft and dye the hair cuticle, giving longer-lasting effects.
This color remains until the hair grows out completely to regain the hair’s natural colour.
In order to maintain the colour, hair dyes require touch-ups done at the roots from time to time, in order to maintain hair brightness and vibrancy.
Semi-Permanent Hair Dyes:
These semi-permanent hair dyes are suitable for people who wish to colour their hair for shorter periods of time.
Depending on the brand of semi-permanent hair dye you choose, they will last anywhere between a few weeks to a couple of months before the colour eventually fades off.
Temporary Hair Dyes:
These hair dyes are best suited for those who wish to use it for one-time use as it washes away after a single hair wash.
These types of dyes usually coat the hair shaft of each hair strand and don’t penetrate into the hair cortex.
It is essential to remember that hair dyes work well with lighter hair shades, like on bleached or blonde hair.
But nevertheless, darker hair too can be dyed, but the brightness and vibrancy of the dye may not be as bright and prominent.
