Almost all women's hairstyles can benefit from the addition of color but what is a girl to do if she wants a change of hue but is commitment shy? This is where a semi-permanent hair color comes to the rescue.
Unlike permanent hair colors that open the cuticle of the hair shaft and either permanently lighten your hair or deposit a darker shade within the hair itself, semi-permanents merely coat the hair shaft. This means your new color will gradually fade away within six to eight weeks and return to your natural shade.
Also, because women's hairstyles can suffer damage if they endure too many chemical processes, a gentle semi-permanent color that uses a very mild developer won't dry out your hair. This not only allows users to keep their manes healthy but to color again and again without risking permanent damage.
Though you can only go darker with a semi-permanent hair colors that doesn't mean you can't get a great new color. For examples of women's hairstyles that have fabulous darker shades have a look at Courtney Cox Arquette or Catherine Zeta Jones.
