Coloring your hair takes courage and commitment. Courage, because you don’t know how your dye job’s going to look on you until after you go ahead and get it, and the ensuing upkeep is where the commitment part comes in. But with the holidays rolling out, I think we can all agree on the fact that a no-strings-attached hair color would be nothing short of a blessing, especially if you need to have “normal” hair at work.
Well, thank god for wash out colors. Not only are they extremely fun but they’re also super practical.

How to use a temporary hair color spray?
Wash your hair, then dry and untangle it. Once you’ve gotten all the tangles out, style your hair and spray the color on in sections.

Hair color sprays are temporary, which means that they do not penetrate your hair shaft. Instead, they coat your hair in pigment to help add color.
Do hair color sprays wash out?
Yes, hair color sprays wash out with just one shampoo. However, some products can stain your hair, so it’s always best to do your research before buying anything.
How long do hair color sprays last?
Hair color sprays can last for up to 3 days if you don’t wash your hair.
Are colored hairsprays safe for children?
