What Is A Temporary Hair Color Spray?

A hair color spray is a form of temporary hair dye, also known as wash-out hair color, that offers a non-damaging, short-term way to color your hair. Unlike other types of hair color, temporary sprays don’t actually change the color of your strands, they just coat the outside of the hair shaft in a dye that usually fades in a few shampoos or less. Temporary hair color sprays don’t contain chemicals like ammonia or peroxide in the formula, making them easy to use on all hair types and textures.

Temporary Hair Color Spray Vs. Semi-Permanent Hair Dye

There are a few different types of temporary hair dye out there—temporary hair color spray is just one of many. Choosing the right one for your hair color needs comes down to understanding how they differ and how they work. Semi-permanent hair dye is a non-damaging, short-term way to color your hair. Unlike most permanent formulas, it doesn’t contain ammonia or peroxide, which means it doesn’t require any developer or pre-mixing so that you can apply it straight to your hair from the applicator. It generally lasts through a few washes and can go even longer if you use the right products. And since there’s no bleach required, it’s also safe to use on hair that’s been permed or relaxed. Semi-permanent hair color can add gloss and shine to dull-looking hair.

How To Use A Temporary Hair Color Spray

If you’re ready for a quick hair color change, then a temporary hair color spray is right on time. Choose your favorite hue from the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray. With eleven colors available including red, rose gold, pastel mint, and blue, your hair experimenting options are vast. You can try giving yourself accent highlights with peek-a-boo hair, a trendy new ombré dip-dyed look, or cover your entire head without stepping near a bottle of bleach. This wash out hair color is designed for both blondes and brunettes and is suitable for all hair types so everyone can get in on the fun. 

Make sure you shake the bottle well before applying. Place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothing and hold the can four to six inches away from dry hair and spray wherever you want. The color will become more vivid after it dries down, so be sure to spray a little at a time and wait a few minutes until it’s completely dry before applying more.  Also, if you’re looking for all-over color, you may need to use more than one can, depending on the length and thickness of your mane.
