Semi-Permanent Hair Color - Kowabunga (Green)
A radioactive shade of neon green for all our bitchin’ and bodacious babes.
What does it do?
Our semi-permanent hair dye line combines salon-grade green pigments with a nontoxic, conditioning formula that deposits ultra vibrant color. Semi-permanent hair dyes do not damage the hair, in fact they’re super conditioning! GDY’s formula combines a high-quality cream base, like a hair mask with essential oil benefits. The color is deposited on top of the hair shaft and acts like a stain that will fade out over time each time you wash your hair. Color can last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. We recommend using color protecting hair care like our GDY Color Kind Line to keep color vibrant longer.
What does it smell like?
Fragranced with Bergamot essential oil, our semi-permanent dye has a light citrus scent that is mood lifting.
Is this for my hair?
Our semi-permanent dyes will show the truest color on pre-lightened hair, levels 8-10. We recommend using our Lightening Kit to get the perfect base shade for your color.
What to know?
Semi-perm is a thick, conditioning formula, no need to mix with a conditioner.
Color payoff will vary based on how much hair is lightened as well as on the porosity of the hair and underlying hair chemistry. We recommend a hair strand test to determine color payoff.
All hair textures, pre lightened, chemically treated, keratin treated, and color treated hair.
Healthy hair focused, no PPDs, Ammonia, Sulfates, Parabens or other harsh hair chemicals or additives.
Sunflower Extract adds extra UV protection from the sun and hot tools that fade hair.
Fragranced with essential oil Bergamot, known for its mood-lifting properties.
Ultra creamy formula that deeply conditions while depositing color.
Our semi-permanent dyes are carefully crafted to be free from a range of harmful ingredients, including 4-ABP, ammonia, peroxide, formaldehyde, PPD's, persulfates, paraben, resorcinol, MEA, nickel, bleach, and phthalates.
We are proud to say that all of our products are also vegan and cruelty-free, reflecting our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices.
Step 1: To create the best canvas for your color, we recommend lightening your hair using our GDY Lightening Kit.
Step 2: Mix color in the GDY Color Mixing Bowl and use gloves to prevent staining hands.
Step 3: Ensure you strand test first before applying color all over your head.
Step 4: Section and apply directly onto dry hair. Make sure color is fully saturated at every step by combining product through each section.
Step 5: Let the color sit for at least 30 minutes.
Step 6: Rinse with cold water and style as desired with GDY Prime.
Allow at least 24 hours before your first shampoo. Rinse hair with cool water each time you wash to minimize fading process. Reduce hair washing days to extend color.
While color is processing, use a cap to keep the color damp. Coloring your hair is an investment. Make sure to use color protecting hair care like GDY’s Color Kind Line to keep color vibrant longer. Product will stain, so protect hands, all surfaces and clothing. Apply shea butter, coconut oil or thick conditioner to the hairline to prevent staining.
