I Have Recently Bleached My Hair - When Can I Start To Use Touch of Silver?

Bleaching hair can make it more porous so the results may be a little uneven, which could give a slightly patchy look. We recommend not to use for 2 weeks after having hair dyed. It is advisable to leave the product on for only 2 to 3 minutes, rather than the full 5 minutes for the first wash.

Is Touch Of Silver A Hair Dye?

Yes, it is a temporary hair coloring product, which means it washes out, usually within 6 to 8 washes. The violet pigment sits on the surface of the hair, as opposed to the longer lasting permanent and semi-permanent hair colorants, which penetrate the hair shaft and 'lock' inside it.

What Should You Do If You Think You May Have Reacted To A Hair Colouring Product?

The Touch of Silver Twice A Week Brightening Shampoo does contain a hair dye, which can cause an allergic reaction. However, the concentration used is low and the product is only in contact with your hair and scalp for a short time. It is therefore extremely unlikely that you will have an adverse reaction to this or any other ingredients. However, if you do experience problems such as skin or scalp itching, discontinue use immediately. If you experience a skin or scalp rash, swelling to eyes/face, blistering after coloring or on the following days you must seek immediate medical advice.

If you are allergic to a hair dye it is important that you do not use any hair colouring product until you have undergone patch testing by a dermatologist to confirm if this is the problem. If you are allergic to a hair dye, the reaction could be much more severe next time.
