How often should I color my hair?

You should wait a minimum of two weeks between hair color applications. There are several factors that you may choose to consider when deciding how often to color your hair.

  • The treatment you are using: Permanent or Demi-Permanent hair color.
  • The quantity/percentage of gray hair that you have.
  • The intensity of the dyed tone that you have.

Typically, hair color is applied every 4-6 weeks: more often if you have gray hair that you want to cover or if you are coloring with an intense tone that fades in less time than 4 to 6 weeks.
