When it comes to mistakes that hair-color newbies tend to make, Tang says the biggest one he sees is not using enough product. “It is important to use a generous amount of product so that you cover every strand well to ensure even saturation of the temporary color,” he explains. “Don’t be afraid of using a lot of product! In the world of coloring, less is not more.”
Prothero adds that another common mistake goes back to it being a temporary hair color and washing your hair immediately after getting it colored. “Wait at least 48 hours before washing your hair. Using extremely hot water to wash your hair will cause the temporary color to fade out faster as well,” she warns.
