Permanent hair colour stays in your hair for longer period and cannot be washed out, although it may fade and needs frequent touch ups for newer growth of hair. Those who use permanent hair color for their hair have to go for regular monthly or six-weekly coloring to maintain their hair color and eliminate hair with natural color growing at half an inch per month from the scalp. As you cannot get rid of permanent hair colour through washing it out so it is difficult to make changes if you don’t like the results. Hence, you should be careful before choosing permanent hair colour for your hair.

Permanent hair coloring is followed in two parts: first, the hair is bleached, and then the color is applied. Permanent hair colour products generally contain an oxidizing agent and alkalizing agent ammonia. When alkalizing agent combines with the oxidizing agent generally hydrogen peroxide, it becomes alkine. Then it diffuses through hair fiber and enters the cortex of hair where melanin is located. Hydrogen peroxide breaks up the melanin and replaces it with the new color. It lightens hair’s natural pigment to form a new base and permanently alter the hair color.

Permanent hair coloring is usually recommended to men or women with a great deal of grey hair. With the frequent touch ups of permanent hair colour, grey hair are completely covered. It is also recommended for those who want to change their natural hair colour, go blond or lighten their hair colour. Many times, a hair makeover through permanent hair color damages quality of hair. It is important to use only good brand of hair colour products and take advice from professional hair experts before changing your hair colour through permanent hair colors. Whether you are trying permanent or semi permanent colour, it is better to choose a natural looking shade that compliments your skin tone and personality.
