All The Hair Color and Tools Needed to Color Your Own Hair
Semi Permanent Hair Color
Jazzings is a great way to color your hair without the commitment of a permanent change.
My daughter and many friends have used this product and love it. The bottle is pre-mixed and requires no ammonia or peroxide. Jazzings leaves hair extra shiny and the color looks amazing. You have two options, one temorary and one semi-permanent, depending on the length of time left on the hair and by applying heat or not. We love this color option. This is a great product for newbies new to the do it yourself hair color.
Note: Be prepared to take your time being careful, this hair color is thick and takes time and patients to evenly cover the entire head of hair. If you have long hair you will need two bottles. If you have very long and thick hair you will want to buy two or more bottles to insure you get a good even coverage.
Caution - This color does stain your skin, hands or anything else it comes in contact with so do be careful not to splatter, drip or wipe the color any place other than your hair. You will need to buy gloves as this color does not come with gloves.
Plus - You can opt to use clear jazzings to achieve a shiny coating to your otherwise dull hair.
