Definition of Demipermanent Hair Dye

Definition: Demipermanent Hair Color

Much like its close cousin, semipermanent hair color, demipermanent color creates a more natural looking effect without lifting any levels or tones out of the hair. However, a demi will last much longer, usually between 20 to 28 shampoos. And because this type of hair color gently fades out with each washing, there are no noticeable roots.

Demipermanent color is considered gentle and ammonia-free, using a low level of peroxide to penetrate the hair shaft. This means the chemicals work to deposit color, providing intensified, deepening results. Plus, they're much better at covering grays than a semipermanent, although not as effective as permanents. (More on those later.)

Two more great things about demipermanents? They're often used as fillers to replace missing tones from the hair before a permanent color is applied, and they're also used to tone highlights after the lightening process. Try L'Oreal Color Spa Moisturizing Colorant ($6.50) or L'Oreal Color Gems Haircolor Natural ($6) with L'Oreal Color Gems Creme Activator ($3.40) if you'd like to enhance your own natural tones.

=/ i actually found that the l'oreal colorgems don't last as long as the clairol semis. Only thing is that the clairol doesn't have the more intense colors, they're all on the more natural side of things. oh well

I swear by L'Oreal Colorspa Moisture Actif dye--the only dye I'll use in my hair actually. My sister got me hooked on them last year, and I love the Sunset Golden Copper and Redwood shades.

I use L'Oreal Color Gems. Its a good brand but my only warning is that the color will come a lot darker than the swatch. I have bought the Natural Brown shade and my hair came out dark brown almost black. I don't mind that but others won't. The color does fade nicely and evenly with washings. I am going on almost 4 months since my last dye job with this brand my color is still looking decent. Lighter than where I started but it still looks good and even.So either chose the color lighter than one you want (i.e choose Light brown instead of brown) or leave it on for the minimum amount of time

I use this, just to "refresh" my natural color. It gets a little dull during the winter months.
