Jerome Russell's Punky Hair Color
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 that lasts.
