Hairdo: Semi-permanent colour

Spruce up your look a little with a semi-permanent colour. Applying a semi-permanent colour will give the same depth as a natural base or darker. It is used to change the tone of the hair by adding gold, copper or burgundy hues and covering grey hair.

1. Shampoo hair.

2. Mix Revlon Young Colour Excel Colour Gel with Revlon Young Colour Excel Dark Brown Toner.

3. Part hair and apply mixture from roots to enhance grey hairs.

4. Put on a steam cap and sit under the dryer for approximately 35 minutes.

5. Wash out hair twice, first with a stabilising shampoo then with a neutralizing one. Apply a neutralising conditioner to lock in moisture.

6. Blow-dry hair and use a ceramic flat iron to straighten and add flips to the ends.

1. Wash hair with a hydrating shampoo (The Hair and Scalp Clinic's original shampoo was used).

2. Apply mousse and setting lotion.

3. Blow-dry hair.

4. Part the hair and use a ceramic curling iron to apply drop curls.
