Making It Last
As a stylist and consumer for over 10 years using punky colors this
is what I have found to work. If your not using bleach to
prelighten first , wash your hair with a clarifiyng shampoo or dawn
dish soap(cheaper) You want your hair to feel more dry not greasy.
Dry = porous and thats what you want so the color will penetrate
deeper. When you apply make sure you thoroughly saturate by combing
thru. Put on a shower cap and let the steam heat from the shower
help it along. Although it says you can rinse in 15 min. dont .
Leave it in for at least 30min. Rinse with cool water till clear
and towel dry. Now heres the trick... apply a demi-permanent clear
over the punky. I use Redken Shades but Wella 000 clear will do.
This serves to coat and seal the hair strands so there is less
fading and less transfer like to your pillow or shirts. Leave this
on for 15- 20 min and rinse well, condition with a protein
conditioner and you should have soft hair with outrageous color
