How Long Does Permanent Hair Color Last and Other Tips

Nothing beats luxurious hair color that’s long-lasting and that actually benefits your hair health. Permanent hair color from ion™ Color Brilliance™ is your best option when choosing custom color with a high shine, vibrant hues, and silky feel.

How Long Does Permanent Hair Color Last?

Permanent hair color lasts the longest of your coloring options. Permanent hair color actually lightens the hair’s natural color by lifting and depositing color on the strands. For a quick refresher, here are the differences between semi-, demi-, and permanent hair color.

  • Semi-permanent: Lasts about 10 to 15 shampoos, depositing color only on the outer layer of the hair. Perfect choice if you’re unsure about coloring and want to experiment.
  • Demi-permanent: Lasts about 20 to 28 shampoos and may contain a small amount of peroxide. It deposits the color between the cortex and cuticle, which helps the color last longer than semi-permanent color.
  • Permanent color: Lasts until the colored hair grows out. Use permanent hair color when you want to lighten your hair significantly or enjoy a long-lasting color. Best choice when you don’t want to color weekly.
