Home Maintenance and What to Expect:
Your color will bleed. These beautiful inky colors will spread their vibrant selves whenever wet. Be mindful of light colored shirts, pillow cases, towels, shower curtains, etc. After a few washes this should subside, but continue to use caution!
Your color will fade. Pulp Riot is not permanent, so your color will definitely fade. How quickly it will fade depends on MANY factors.
1- The condition of your own hair. Depending on the porosity and health of your own hair, sometimes it grabs and holds great, sometimes it rinses through like a sponge.
2- How many times has it been applied? Generally if you apply the same tone over and over it holds a little better.
3- How often you are washing? Temporary or semi-perm colors live on the outside, so each shampoo takes a little more off. As stylists we will push it to (don't judge us) one or two shampoos a week. I mean, the less work the better! So grab yourself a KEVIN.MURPHY FRESH.HAIR dry shampoo and stretch that style.
4- What products you are using. I can't stress this enough. This can honestly make or break your color longevity. For any color line. When you do wash be sure to use a color safe, sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. And no, I don't have a recommendation for CVS. Your best bet is to invest in professional products. Especially if you want to protect your color investment! The best color saver trick? Use KEVIN.MURPHY STAYING.ALIVE leave in treatment after each time you wash. This is a spray in treatment that actually helps lower the pH of your hair to close the cuticle.
5- How much are your heat styling. Using a heat protectant is imperative. The KM YOUNG.AGAIN, LEAVIN-IN.REPAIR, or ANTIGRAVITY will do the trick. Also, keep that tool under 400. I'm gonna guess if you have Pulp Riot you have had some bleaching done as well, in which case, 365 should be your max.
