The 5 longest-lasting pink hair dyes: from 30 to 4 washes (I help you choose the best one for you)

long hair

I took the time to research the longest-lasting pink hair dyes. After two hours of reading different manufacturers and including my own experience in the salon, I could put together a list.


The first on the list is the longest-lasting pink dye. The last on the list is the least-lasting one:


As you can see, the duration of each hair dye is very different. You must add the products you use in your beauty routine.

Did you know that shampoos contain sulfates and other strong chemicals which remove the color of these hair dyes?


If you wash your hair with a shampoo containing sulfates, pink will most likely not last more than 3 shampoos.

You should use a sulfate and alcohol-free shampoo and conditioner. And  the good news is that most of these hair color brands have their own product lines. So, you can keep your color longer.

Also, consider how many times you wash your hair per week.

If you wash your hair every day, your color will fade in two weeks. As if that wasn’t enough, your hair will become weak and dry.

Ideally, you should wash your hair every 48 to 72 hours. Even so, if you use a pink hair dye to color your hair.


Finally, as summer approaches in the Southern Hemisphere, you should avoid exposing your hair to pool water or seawater. Wear plastic caps and choose a beautiful hat or scarf to cover your hair.

These factors will influence the duration of your hair dye. Each manufacturer determines how long pink hair dye lasts under normal conditions of use.

What are the ideal conditions for pink to last as long as possible in your hair?

subtle waves

  • No sulfates shampoos.
  • Wash your hair less frequently, at least every 72 hours.
  • Protect your pink hair dye from chlorinated water, saltwater, and the sun.
  • Use a color depositing shampoo. Today I’ll show you a homemade recipe you can make yourself.


If you have all this care, the pink dyes I mentioned will last as long as the manufacturers indicate. Are you willing to take care of your pink hair dye considering these factors?


Then, let’s look at each of these hair dyes one by one.


SPLAT: lasts for 30 washes

Splat is dedicated exclusively to fantasy colors. As regards pink, there are up to three different shades of pink to choose from.

Now, do you know the secret to make Splat pink look great on your hair?


Your hair must be bleached. At least, it must be a light (8) or very light (9) blonde. The lighter the pink color you want to apply, the lighter the base should be.

Does your hair tend to lose a lot of moisture?


Then  even though it’s one of the longest-lasting pink hair colors, I don’t recommend it. Its formula contains alcohol or glycerin, which will further dry out your hair fiber. 


Its duration is quite long. It lasts 30 washings and it’s simple to use.

Its creamy texture avoids spills, but you must be very careful because it’ll stain everything it touches, absolutely everything.


PUNKY COLOUR: lasts for 25 washes

lasts up to 30 washes

This brand offers five different shades of pink.

Does your hair tend to get dry?


 Don’t hesitate. This brand offers you extra duration and hydration due to its moisturizing cream consistency. 


It’s simple to use both your wet and dry hair according to your preference.

If you also want to add extra protection to your pink hair, you can use the PUNKY COLOUR all-in-one shampoo and conditioner line. They’re color depositing products. What does it mean?


It means that every time you wash your hair, you’ll be adding pink pigments that’ll help you keep the color in for longer.


ARCTIC FOX: lasts for 20 washes

semi permanent color

ARCTIC FOX’s pink, turquoise, and violet dyes are unique in their texture and brightness.


 However, this brand has something even more innovative when it comes to fantasy colors. It allows you to mix colors to achieve your personalized color. 

For example, you can achieve a darker pink by adding red or a lighter one by adding white. If you don’t find the pink you’re looking for among the shades offered by Arctic Fox, you can customize your color.


It’s simple to use due to its creamy consistency that doesn’t drain or stain.

  • Separate your hair into 4 sections and, on your dry hair, apply ARCTIC FOX pink hair dye in each section.
  • Leave on for 20 to 40 minutes, controlling the color, until you get the intensity you want. Finally, rinse with cold water.


ARCTIC FOX doesn’t have a line of shampoos for color maintenance, but you can do it yourself, following these indications.


Homemade color depositing shampoo:

  • In a colorless, sulfate-free shampoo, add pink dye, mixing well, until the elements are integrated.
  • Replace your usual shampoo with this one. Use it twice a week and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes.


MANIC PANIC: lasts from 15 to 20 washes

various light and dark shades

Every year this brand launches color palettes of up to 50 different shades. Can you imagine the variety of colors that are added?


That’s why you can choose up to seven different pinks, even a neon pink that glows in the dark.

In addition, MANIC PANIC has its own line of shampoo and conditioner so you can keep the pink longer.


L’ORÉAL COLORISTA: lasts for 3 to 4 washes

L’Oréal has developed a pink hair dye that lasts very shortly on your hair. It fades completely in 4 washes. Each color in the Colorista line has a stated duration. It’s four washes for pink. A tip?


If you choose this color, your hair should be a light blonde 8 for best results. Finally, the application is very simple because it’s creamy. Also, the coloring kit includes a brush applicator.
