Looking to change up or brighten the shade of your hair, but don’t want to head to the salon? Many hair color brands offer semi-permanent and demi-permanent color treatments. These are a gentler alternative to permanent coloring.
Semi-permanent doesn’t contain peroxide…meaning it can only cover what is lighter than it.
Demi-permanent has a bit of peroxide (typically between 5 and 15 volume), which can help to lift the color and soften grays ever so slightly. In other words, demi will leave a line of demarcation while semi will rinse out over several washes. Below are some great options to try at home…
