How Long The Color Will Last?
With the never-ending shelves packed with beard dye colors, it’s hard for you to pick out the perfect one for you. You fear about the quality, results and most importantly how long until you’ll have to recolor? Here’s what you need to know:
Progressive coloring: These colors are composed of “Grecian formula”. It consists of lead acetate, once your beard is exposed to the atmospheric air; the color of your hair darkens. Once you feel your beard is of the exact color that you wanted, you may stop coloring.
Direct Dyes: These dyes are composed of the molecules of colors, the actual pigments. The application is easy and doesn’t take long. The only setback is that only after 7 to 12 washes, the color will fade away.
Semi-permanent color: It’s better than direct dyes but then again it fades away in just 12-15 washes.
Regular permanent color: This type of beard color actually causes the natural color of your beard to fade away, which means bye grey, hello new color!
