How Long Does Pulp Riot Color Last?
That’s the question we get asked most often. With semi-permanent hair color, you shouldn’t be asking how long it lasts… instead, you should be asking, “How long does it fade?”
After application, the hair goes through a vibrant period, and then over time the hair goes through a fading period, where sometimes Pulp Riot colors can look even more beautiful. How long the colors stay in the vibrant period, how long they go through the fading period, and how beautiful they look during the fade are dependent on 3 things; the quality of the dye, how it is applied, and aftercare.
Quality of Dyes
Not all dyes are created equal. The dyes used in Pulp Riot are the very highest quality of dyes. They’re more expensive, but they’re more vibrant, they last longer, and they fade true to tone. Cheaper dyes are less vibrant, the vibrant period is brief, they fade quickly, and they fade poorly (the pinks fade to a salmon color, the greens fade to a muddy color, etc.)
Pulp Riot should be applied to clean dry hair. Care should be taken to make sure the hair is fully saturated. No developer should be used. Never use a conditioner or treatment prior to application because some can create a barrier. Pulp Riot should process at room temperature for 30 to 40 minutes and then rinsed with cool water without shampoo.
We recommend that you wait a couple of days to wash your hair for the first time. Each wash will make your color less vibrant. When washing, a high-quality sulfate-free shampoo should be used on the scalp area, and you should just let the shampoo run through the ends while rinsing with cool water. Hot water opens the pores in your hair and releases the color molecules.
Using the wrong shampoo, hot water, and heavy lather can cause dramatic fading after just one wash.
Dry shampoo is also a great option to get more time between shampoos.
Avoid straight sun.
Avoid swimming. Excessive chlorinated water or well water will shorten the life of the color. Also, it should be noted, that while rare, certain medications and hair porosity issues can sometimes have a significant effect.
So, how long does Pulp Riot color fade? With proper application and aftercare, the lighter colors fade beautifully up to 25 washes, and the bolder colors fade beautifully up to 40 washes.
