How To Ace The Fading Process

We at Paradyes, believe in making the inevitable process of fading work in our favour on our hair color journey! How can you get the most out of your hair color and use even faded tones to your benefit? Read on to find out.
Fading is a process detested by most hair color enthusiasts, and for good reason- Most hair dyes look fresh and vivid upon application but turn dull and lifeless upon fading. But fading is an inevitable process when it comes to semi-permanent hair dyes. Of course, your hair base will play a major part in the fading process. The lighter and porous the hair base, the more pastel the fade. We at Paradyes, however, believe in making the inevitable process of fading work in our favor on our hair color journey! How can you get the most out of your hair color and use even faded tones to your benefit? Read on to find out.

Our Semi-Permanent dyes fade out in about 10-15 washes, but the beautiful part is that each wash causes a slight fade, slowly changing your color and giving you a subtly different look every time you wash your hair. In this way, you can enjoy not only the bright, vivid version of your shade in the beginning but also begin to rock its lighter tones (which are extremely in trend!) once your color starts fading out.

Warm shades such as our Rubra Red and Raggiana Orange fade to give coppery warm tones, shimmery in the sun. So, in effect, whatever your base hair level is, whether blonde or brown, our warm shades leave a coppery warm tint upon fading.

On the other hand, our cooler shades such as Rudolphi Blue and Mayeri Green require a higher hair level (8 to 10) to deposit brightly and fade to give pastels or even chic ashy tones in some cases. The yellow tones on your blonde base are neutralized by blues and violets and leave an ashy tone upon fading.

Now that you know how your chosen shade will fade out, this knowledge can come in handy while trying to deposit a new shade once your old one has faded out. You must remember that whichever new shade you try to deposit, will add up with the old faded tone and give a unique result. For instance, depositing Mayeri Green on faded Rudolphi Blue will give an aqua shade- largely a green with some hints of blue. On the other hand, depositing Mayeri Green on faded Red will neutralize the shade to a brown. For more information on how to layer shades correctly, check out our blog on color layering.
