WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERMANENT COLOR, DEMI-PERMANENT COLOR, SEMI-PERMANENT COLOR AND TEMPORARY COLOR?
While they sound a lot alike, there’s a distinct difference between each kind of hair color.Here’s a crash course:•Temporary color is exactly as it sounds: temporary. The color sits on top of the hair cuticle and is washed away with water or shampoo. Think sprays, hair chalk etc..•Semi-Permanent color is developed with a single product, so you don’t need to mix it with an oxidizer. The color is applied directly to the hair and then processed for 20 – 30 minutes, sometimes using heat. The results gradually fade over time and will generally last for 7 - 10 shampoos.•Demi-permanent color is a 2-part system that uses a dye pigment mixed with a low volume oxidizer. The low volume oxidizer limits the amount of color change, so the results are long-lasting but not necessarily permanent.•Permanent color is, well, just that. It’s a 2-part system that uses a dye pigment and oxidizer, which is usually a solution of hydrogen peroxide. When the two parts combine, the mixture both removes some of the hair’s natural pigment molecules and deposits the desired color molecules which changes the color of the hair permanently.
WILL IGK COLOR COVER MY GRAYS?
Yes. IGK Color is permanent and will cover gray hair. Depending on how resistant your hair is, you may need more time to process. Be sure to read the directions provided on how long you should leave the color on for the best results.
WHAT DO THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS MEAN ON THE IGK COLOR BOX?
It’s how we designate the characteristics of our shades. The number defines the level or depth in the shade (aka the lightness/darkness of a shade) and is designated with 1 being black, 10 being the lightest blonde. The letters directly following the number identify the tone or tones. The first letter is the dominant tone, and the second letter is the supporting tone.Here’s an example: 5GM (Brown, Gold, Mahogany)1 Black2 Almost Black3 Darkest Brown4 Dark Brown5 Brown6 Light Brown7 Dark Blonde8 Blonde9 Light Blonde10 Very Light BlondeNatural - NBlue - BViolet - VGold - GCopper - CMahogany - MRed - R
