How To Use Hair Colour Spray

Using a hair colouring spray is as easy as it sounds. Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Style your clean and dry hair. 

Step 2: Protect your clothes. Cover your shoulders with a towel or a plastic sheet. 

Step 3: Spray the colour. Don’t be impatient, spray the colour in sections. 

Step 4: Let it dry for 10 minutes or as specified on the box. This might vary from brand to brand.


How long will my hair colour spray last?

Your hair colour spray can easily last from 1 to 4 days depending upon the pigment and the brand that you are using. In fact, a few of these sprays can also endure a couple of washes and last for a week or two.

How do you wash off temporary hair colour?

While temporary hair colour spray generally gets washed off with a shampoo, you can add a bit of baking soda to your shampoo if that’s not working. However, don’t forget to use a conditioner as baking soda tends to dry out your hair.  

Will a temporary hair colouring spray damage my hair?

Temporary hair dye is not bad for your hair since the formula is devoid of harsh chemicals that are generally used in permanent hair colours. However, do avoid regular use. 

Do I need my hair to be pre-lightened to use a hair colour spray? 

Hair colouring sprays come out better in pre-lightened hair and the pigment looks different on different coloured hair. That said, there are hair colouring sprays that work on dark hair as well.

How to get temporary hair colour spray out of clothes?

To get rid of hair colouring spray stains, mix fabric softener with water in a ratio of 1:2. Now, generously rub the mix on the stain. Leave the solution for a while and then rub gently to get it out of the fabric. Additionally, baking soda, alcohol, and vinegar will also do the job. 

So ladies what are you waiting for? Pick up your hair colour spray bottle and let’s paint the town..errrr…hair all gorgeous hues imaginable!
