Fanola Semi-Permanent Hair Colour At Home

Semi-permanent hair colour is the answer to any lockdown hair urges you are experiencing while the salons are closed. The Fanola semi-permanent hair colours are safe to apply yourself at home and are a fun way to bring life back to dull, faded hair. Instead of attempting to bleach your roots and risk a telling off from your hairstylist, apply one of our temporary colours. Plus, if you are not a big fan of the results, you won’t have to wait until the salons reopen to change your hair as temporary colours wash out after several washes.

Why are Semi-Permanent Hair Colours Better For Your Hair?

There are many reasons temporary hair colours are better for your hair. But the main ones are that they don’t contain any ammonia; the ingredient that opens the hair cuticle to deposit pigment into the hair’s cortex. They also don’t require any peroxide or bleach which can damage your strands. Unlike permanent hair colours, semi-permanent colours only coat the outer hair shaft, so don’t need these ingredients. Other reasons are:

    • They do not cause any damage to your hair.
    • They do not contain any harsh ingredients.
    • Temporary colours allow you to experiment without worrying about the damaging effects of permanent hair colour.

 Fanola Oro Therapy Colouring Masks

 Our Oro Therapy Colouring Masks are a hair care product and semi-permanent colour in one. The mask hydrates and nourishes the hair with the help of Argan Oil, Keratin and Micro-Active Gold. This combination of hair-loving ingredients are a real treat for your locks and will leave your hair glossy and shiny. The Colouring Masks are available in 9 different colours. So you are sure to find something that catches your eye. The Masks can be mixed, with one another to create different shades and tones. You can use our masks to enhance your natural or cosmetic colour.

How to Use The Oro Therapy Colouring Masks

 These semi-permanent colours are easy enough to apply yourself in the comfort of your own home. All you will need is your selected Colouring Mask, a comb and a pair of plastic gloves. Follow our step by step guide below to perfect your new temporary colour.

 Step By Step Guide

      1.  Before applying the Mask you will need to wash and towel dry your hair.
      2. Now you need to decide whether you want to apply the Mask straight onto your hair with your hands or with a tint brush and bowl. If you plan to use two different colours, a tint brush will allow you to have more control when applying the product.
      3. Once you have applied the semi-permanent colour, you will need to wait 3-30 minutes. The longer you leave the Mask, the more intense the results will be.
      4. After the processing time is over ensure you wash all of the Mask out of your hair.

 Don’t worry too much if you aren’t happy with your results as the colour will only last for up to two weeks. Furthermore, you can always use a clarifying shampoo to help speed up the process.

How to Create A Pastel Colour With The Oro Therapy Colouring Masks

You can easily achieve a pastel hair colour by mixing your chosen Colouring Mask with the Nourishing Restructuring Mask. We would recommend adding a scoop of the Nourishing Mask in a bowl with the Colouring Mask. First off start with a little, as you can always mix in more. You will need to keep on adding more of the Nourishing Mask until you reach your desired tone.

 Here at Fanola HQ, we tried this method on Chloe’s hair. She is our Junior Graphic Designer. Her hair is blonde, but she wanted to mix things up by adding one of our temporary Colour Masks to her hair. For Chloe’s pastel pink locks, we mixed Fuschia, Pink and the Nourishing Mask.

Fanola Free Paint

 The Free Paint range is another collection of semi-permanent colours. These colours are more bright and vivid than the Oro Therapy Colouring Masks. There are 9 colours in total, but one of them is ‘Clear,’ which is to dilute another one of the colours for pastel creations. Just like the colouring Masks, you can mix the Free Paint Colours with one another to create endless colour combinations.

How to Use The Free Paints 

 We would suggest using a tint brush and bowl to apply the Free Paints so that you can distribute the colour evenly. You will also need a pair of plastic gloves. Follow our step by step guide below to master your semi-permanent colour.

 Step By Step Guide

  1.  Before applying the colour of your choice, you will need to wash and towel dry your hair.
  2. Now make sure you have your colour/colours already prepared in your tint bowl. If you want to create a pastel colour, start by adding the necessary amount of Clear Free Paint into a bowl. Then, start adding small parts of the colour you have chosen until you reach your desired shade.
  3. Next, apply the product to your strands making sure to cover them evenly.
  4. Leave the product on your hair for 5 minutes and then rinse.

 If you feel like your new colour doesn’t suit you, don’t panic! The Free Paint range lasts up to 15 washes, but you can use a clarifying shampoo to help wash the colour out quicker.
