Let’s face it: After a year like 2020, we’ve all become a little more low-maintenance with our hair routines. While committing to a full head of foils or heading to the salon for a touch-up every six to eight weeks used to seem like a no-brainer, these days, you might be looking for quicker, less damaging ways to switch up your hair color while still achieving gorgeous results.
Luckily, whether you’re a blonde, brunette, or redhead, demi-permanent hair colors can transform, tone, enhance, condition, and add shine to your color. While there are many demi-permanent formulas on the market, our experts across the board swear by one: Redken Shades EQ. If you love switching up your hue but are wary of committing to a big change, these acidic, ammonia-free formulas are made to work in just 20 minutes, fade gradually over time, and won’t damage your hair whatsoever.
