    Default Hair colouring - permanent or semi permanent?

    Other than longevity, what is the difference between permanent or semi-permanent hair dyes? I dye my hair regularly (I am quite grey without hair dye) and I get the feeling that semi-perm is preferred over perm for most people but this doesn't make sense to me. I am only colouring my hair to get an all over colour that is close to my natural colour (and will be doing so regularly) so why would I want a semi-perm colour? Are there any hairdressers out there who can give me some advice?

    Cheers.

    Sounds like a permanent is best for you then, semi's or semi's are used (usually) for people who have less then 50% grey or white hair.

    If you want full grey coverage and your hair is more then 50% grey, permanent is your best option.

    I get a permanent because my hair is really white blonde naturally! Otherwise it washes out very quickly!

    I only use permanent as it takes a month or so to fade. Rinses don't take to my hair at all and semi permanents will usually wash out after a week or two.

    Definitely ned a permanent to cover the grey hair coming through
    Get them to use a double base/intense natural (all brands have there own wording) + the colour you are wanting , 1/2 and 1/2 + 3 or 4%
    In our colour brand we have 7 (normal base) 7.00 (double base for grey coverage)
    translates to : 25g 7.00 + 25g 7.3 + 75g 3% on the roots

    they could then do a 7.3 semi on your ends to refresh your ends
    *permanent colour on colour (on the ends) goes darker
    so your ends will always be darker
