What is the difference between a Hair Color Rinse and Hair Dye? -Thursday, May 19, 2016
What is the difference between a Hair Color Rinse and Hair Dye? Starting with the technical difference, a hair color rinse stains the outer layer of hair. A dye actually penetrates the hair shaft and deposits color into the hair shaft. Here it is important to note that the differences between a rinse and the traditional hair dyes are also the potential advantages of the coloring rinse. A hair color rinse is gentler on hair and usually a less permanent option, compared to the traditional hair color. If you want a subtle change or you want to just try a new hair color without a long term commitment then a rinse is a good choice. Additionally, if you are concerned about damaging your hair or if you have damaged hair already then a rinse would be a better option. A rinse is much better than a hair dye (including the closest rival demi-permanent hair color) to cover grays, when you are looking for a milder, gentler and a more subtle alternative to do so. By definition a hair color rinse is a temporary hair tint.
