Adrián Pérez, Spanish education manager for Matrix, shares his expert knowledge on everything you need to know about this game-changing way to rock the blackest locks on dark brown or blonde hair!

Temporary Black Hair Dye: How And Why?

Available in a wide range of shades, the Matrix SoColor Cult range provides you with the perfect tool to achieve beautiful black locks temporarily. If your hair is previously dyed, your stylist can also easily remove the current color with the Matrix SoColor Eraser service to change up your look in one go! The range offers vibrancy, superior conditioning and customizable longevity, meaning that you can personalize your shade to suit your tastes specifically (hello ombre, balayage, and all the other color techniques that go so beautifully with raven locks!).

The beauty of temporary black hair dye lies in the fact that you don’t need to worry about regrowth because the color will naturally fade out over time, allowing you to try the boldest black tresses without the maintenance.

Pérez has some advice on how to get your temporary black hair dye right:

“Color the hair with tone-on-tone colorations or acid technologies that help seal the color. In addition, follow a routine of proper hair care,” he says.

All the more reason to consult an expert!

How long does temporary black hair dye last?

The answer to this question has a lot to do with how you look after your locks. With the right hair care and protective measures, you can ensure that your temporary black hair dye is looking as good as the day you walked out of the salon for at least 6 weeks. In order to do so, here’s what you need to know.

“Black coloration has more pigment concentrations than others, that is why it is easy to fade,” Pérez explains.

One common foe to your black locks is water, which can contribute to color not lasting as long as it could. With this caveat in mind, the pro has some tips on how to fight the fade and keep your black hair looking as lustrous for as long as possible.

“For color care, I recommend the Matrix Biolage R.A.W range and as a color sealer, try Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Acidic Milk Rinse,” he says.

Incorporate Matrix Biolage R.A.W Color Care Shampoo and Matrix Biolage R.A.W Color Care Conditioner into your hair care routine to guarantee that you’re helping to protecting your color from daily aggressions and premature fading between appointments. Finally, make sure you visit your stylist at least once a month for a professional treatment to help keep your black hair shiny.

Join the dark side and try temporary black hair dye for the boldest locks out there!
