How to Apply

Preparation
1. Brush out your hair to start to remove all tangles and knots to be able to section the hair with ease.
2. Divide and clip up all your hair into 4 sections from the top of the ear, to the ear and temple, to the temple. If clips are not available braid or twist to control the section.

Application
1. Large combs help to get hair colour to the end of the hair and ensures the saturation is consistent if the hair is coloured from root to ends.

Colour Selection
1. For bold hair colour, you may need a pre-lightening step to achieve bright, bold colour results. I recommend Feria Platinum to pre-lighten the hair.
2. For more natural colour and root touch-ups try to stay with 1-2 levels lighter or darker of your natural hair depending on your desired result.

Semi-Permanent hair dye should wash off after a certain amount of washes.

For our pink shades, colour should last between 4-8 shampoos. For Le Color Gloss, our toning gloss lasts up to 10 days.
Does hair dye expire?
Our Haircolor does not have an expiration date. They have a 3-year shelf life. As long as the product smells okay, and mixes properly, you are okay to use it. Note that the package does not have an expiration date printed. The lot code cannot confirm date manufactured.
How to get hair dye off face/out of skin?
The darker the shade, the more pigment and staining is more obvious. If hair colour is still in hair: when rinsing add water & gently massage stained skin area. The cleansing agents in the shampoo will help remove the staining.

If hair colour is washed out: conditioner or face cream will help to remove the stain.
How to get hair dye out of clothes?
We test our products on hair only and therefore cannot offer a solution for removal. For clothing, we suggest the dry cleaner. For household items, we recommend contacting a professional cleaner or hardware store.

While every ingredient we use in our products is evaluated for safety, we do not specifically test our products on women who are pregnant or nursing.
