More than easy, it’s a breeze.

All you need is your preferred hair dye.


 You don’t need developer or any other ingredients. You don’t need to mix or measure proportions. 

Why don’t you need to use a developer with the Adore hair dye?


Because it is a semi-permanent hair dye.

Hair dyes that are applied with a developer are permanent ones. They penetrate the hair fiber and alter its color. Instead, Adore hair dye creates a film of pigment on your hair fiber, adheres to it, and changes its color.

Therefore, the pigments in the Adore hair dye will fade with washes until there’s no trace of the color left in your hair.

How long to leave the Adore hair dye on

It’s time to wait. The pigments must be deposited correctly on the hair. Adore hair dye working time are curious. Do you want to know why?


The hair dye into different shades of the same color according to how long you let it work. So:

  • If you want the shade pictured on the Adore packaging, leave it on for 10 minutes.
  • If you want a more intense color, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes.


But never leave it on for more than 20 minutes. If you do, you won’t really achieve any color change.

Instead, you’ll saturate your hair fiber with pigments. Do you know what that means?


Your hair fiber has a limited capacity to absorb pigments.  Even if you leave the Adore hair dye on for more than twenty minutes, most of the pigments won’t adhere to the hair fiber. 

So you’ll lose color when you wash your hair. Although you always lose some color when you wash your hair, you’ll lose twice as much if you leave the Adore hair dye on for more than twenty minutes.


After the exposure time, rinse your hair with water that is as cold as you can stand. If you want, you can use a sulfate-free shampoo to remove any remaining hair dye from your scalp.

  • Don’t wash your hair immediately after applying the Adore hair color. You should wait for at least 72 hours for the pigments to settle.

  • Wash your hair a maximum of three times a week and use cold water, at least for the final rinse, to seal the cuticles. That way, the color pigments don’t escape.
  • Don’t expose your hair to the sun. If you do, always use hair sunscreen, hats, or scarves.
  • Don’t overuse heat tools. Apply a heat protectant to protect the hair color and moisturize your hair.
  • Use a color depositing shampoo to provide pigmentation with each wash, making the Adore hair color pigments last for months.
