What is long-lasting temporary hair dye?
Permanent hair dye stays in your hair until it grows out —whereas temporary hair dye or semi-permanent dye can last up to 30 washes, or longer if using a colouring conditioner and shampoo, with the colour gradually fading out over time. Some are made to wash out after a single shampoo session. This makes them a great option for those who love to regularly change up their hair colour and try out something new.

They can be used on any hair colour, including blonde hair, dark hair and brown hair, as well as both natural hair and over the top of chemically treated hair. Temporary hair colour doesn't enter the actual hair shaft and change its structure, as permanent hair colour does. Instead, it simply coats the outside of the hair strands and starts fading from the first wash.

Can you use temporary hair dye on bleached hair?
You sure can! In fact, most brands will recommend bleaching your hair first to a fair or platinum blonde before applying temporary hair dye, particularly if you're using a pastel or light shade.

Not only will bleaching help the end result to be rich and vibrant, but it can also make your hair a lot smoother and shinier. To maintain this gorgeous shine and colour, be sure to use a coloured shampoo and conditioner, as well as hair masks, leave-in conditioners or hair oils & serums to keep hair healthy and hydrated.

If you don't want to bleach your hair, you can absolutely still use non-permanent hair dye, but the colour may not be as intense without bleaching. This is because bleaching opens up the cuticles and makes hair more porous so that colour can stay in longer and appear more vibrant.

Manic Panic has temporary hair dye for dark hair without bleaching required. Choose from a range of electric shades, from Atomic Turquoise to Vampire Red, that will show up beautifully on medium brown hair and lighter.

Is temporary hair dye safe?
Non-permanent hair dyes are much gentler on hair than permanent ones as they simply stain the outside of the hair shaft without changing its structure and don't require any developer to activate them. They're completely ammonia-free and don't have any other harsh chemicals in them that can damage your locks.

Many of our non-permanent hair dyes are also vegan and cruelty-free with tons of proteins, amino acids and conditioning agents to moisturise, strengthen and add shine to dull hair.

Here are some of the major benefits of using non-permanent hair colour:
1. Achieve a more natural colour
2. Maintain hair quality without chemicals and ammonia
3. Easier to use with no developer needed
4. Less commitment with the ability to change your hair colour as often as you want
5. Strengthen hair and add shine with the addition of amino acids and proteins

How do you use temporary hair dye?
You can find temporary hair dye in a number of different forms, such as creams, sprays, powders and gels. While a spray can be as simple as spraying the sections of hair you want to be coloured, others will require you to comb through the hair, leave it on for a period of time, such as 30 minutes, and rinse off until the water runs clear before drying with a hair dryer.

Follow the specific instructions on your chosen hair colour product to get the best results possible.

Can you use temporary hair dye to cover grey hair?
Yes, temporary hair colours can cover grey hair. Typically, darker shades will work better than lighter shades to tint grey hair before fading to a pastel. The best temporary hair dye for grey hair is one that will add colour while still maintaining your hair's natural softness and shine. Look for a hair dye that's suitable for grey hair with vitamins, amino acids and moisturising agents in it to retain hair health.

For those who have grey roots or who want to cover up stray grey hairs around the hairline, should use a root touch up such as the Retoucher from Colour Wow!

Can you use temporary hair dye over permanent hair dye?
If your hair is already coloured, you can use a non-permanent hair colour in a similar shade to enhance your colour's shine and vibrancy. If you're looking to change the colour of your hair – you can, but the dye will need to be darker than the colour you have in your hair, such as going from blonde to brown. This is because temporary hair dyes contain no bleaching agents in them and are not able to lift your current colour and change it to a lighter shade.

Temporary Hair Dye FAQ's:
Which temporary hair colour is best?

Unlike semi-permanent hair colours, temporary hair colours wash out fairly easily so you can switch up your hair colour week by week! You have plenty of choice when it comes to the type of product and hair colours. Powders are super easy to apply for covering grey roots while cremes and mousses need to be combed through hair and left to develop.

You can go natural with shades like light brown, light blonde, dark brown and temporary black hair dye. Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Expert Mousse offers a fantastic range of shades from blonde to brown and lasts up to 8 washes.

Shake it up with fun and vibrant colours that are great for parties and special events. Manic Panic and Dare make stunning bright and pastel colours to transform your hair, including Cotton Candy, Lime Crime, Purple Haze and Forget Me Not.

How long does it take to apply temporary hair dye?
This all depends on the type of product you are using. If you're applying a root-touch-up product, like L'Oreal Paris Hair Touch Up or Color Wow Retoucher, you simply brush it onto the hair for instant coverage.

If you plan to change your hair colour with a temporary hair dye, the process is a little longer. Like with semi-permanent hair colour, you'll need to let the colour develop before rinsing it off. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Make sure you read your individual product instructions carefully for best results.

You don't need to use a toner to correct temporary hair colours because they don't alter the pigment of your hair at a deep level - they simply coat it. While semi-permanent dyes will need cleansers and removers to lift them off if you change your mind, non-permanent hair colour can be washed out for a fun, no-commitment way to experiment with hair colour!
