Discover the Temporary color gel

When hair color means freedom

DISCOVER THE PROFESSIONAL RANGE

I have been a hair colorist in Paris for 30 years, and through the years, I have had to face a number of challenges: extraordinary transformations, color corrections, and color treatments on clients with allergies to color processes.

Beauty references have greatly evolved, and today, people are getting back to the natural look and self-acceptance. Men and women no longer come to me with photos of trend-setters, hoping to look like somebody else - they simply ask me, “What color would suit me best?". I love this return to simplicity: to feel comfortable and free to be yourself.

However, in this new world of freedom and simplicity, the appearance of the first few grays are nevertheless an unwelcome sight and can even become a daily obsession. People would like to cover their grays, but they do not wish to change the color or texture of their hair, and get caught up in the root-effect trap.

Back to natural

For the past 5 years, I have been working on a product that would be synonymous with freedom and comfort. My color gel immediately covers grays, while adapting to the natural base color, without modifying the hair's structure. It fades gracefully and evenly in 5 to 7 shampoos, with no root effect.

FAQ

What are the different types of hair color?

How do I choose my shade ?

This line is composed of 4 universal shades. They blend perfectly with the natural base of the hair. Choose the shade that would be closest to the natural hair color. If you hesitate between two shades, pick the lighter one.

This gentle formulation with no oxidants or ammonia immediately covers grays naturally, however it does not allow hair to go lighter.

To transform grays into a subtle balayage, choose a shade that is lighter than the person's natural base. The result will be a luminous coverage with some transparency.

For which hair types is the Temporary color gel for?

This color gel is a simple and temporary hair color option, with no commitment or permanent results. It will suit you best if:

  • Your client wishes to cover their first grays and keep their natural hair color.
  • Your client wishes to keep the freedom of a natural hair color without the root effect that you would get from oxidation dyes. This Temporary color gel fades gracefully and evenly with every shampoo. It can simply be reapplied as often as needed. The color pigments become more resistant the more you use it.
  • For your masculine clientele, if they wish to cover your greys grays in a subtle way, without a "helmet effect", disgraceful shade or root effect. This color gel is ideal as it fades evenly shampoo after shampoo.
  • For clients that are sensitive or allergic to oxidation dyes and wish to cover their grays thanks to a gentle and non-agressive hair color option.
  • For clients who have more that 70% of grays and would like to stop using oxidation dyes (maintenance being too constraining). This Temporary color gel allows to immediately cover grays with no "helmet effect" or root effect , and have the contrast of a natural hair color.
What's the difference between the Temporary color gel and a vegetal color ?

Direct hair color and vegetal color are similar in that neither follows a chemical process to color hair. Color pigments simply grab around the hair fiber. The main difference resides in the types of pigments used and their hold.

In the case of vegetal hair color, color pigments are completely vegetal, hence usually henna and indigo mixed with hot water (Warning : whenever you have to mix pigments with something other than water, this indicates the presence of an alkaline agent or a light oxidant in the formulation). The hold is usually permanent, hence this hair color cannot be removed or lightened, you simply have to wait for your hair to grow back in order to go back to your natural hair color.

In a direct hair color, pigments are not plant-based. The advantage here is that there is more precision in the way the pigments hold onto the hair fiber. It fades shampoo after shampoo to avoid any root effect or disgraceful shades.

Is the Temporary color gel aggressive for the hair or scalp?

This temporary color gel follows the process of direct hair color, which means it simply deposits pigments around the hair fiber. No chemical process is used in this hair color.

It has been dermatologically tested on 140 people with sensitive scalps. None of them experienced clinical signs or discomfort.

It has also been tested on 270 people who stated having a sensitive scalp. 94% declared that it “does not irritate the skin or scalp”.

Concentrated in oats, known for their protective and antioxidant virtues, this formula respects even the most sensitive scalps.

What are Christophe Robin's tips and tricks for the application of his Temporary color gel?
  • Which shampoo should I use before the Temporary color gel?
    Use a shampoo with no silicones for a stronger hold of color pigments. We recommend the Brightening shampoo with camomile and cornflower or the Hydrating shampoo with aloe vera.
  • My advice for a better hold of pigments:
    To reinforce the hold of color pigments, you can add cellophane around your hair while the color sits. The heat allows the hair cuticle to open, hence resulting in stronger color pigment hold.
  • My tips to target just the few grays you might want to hide (on dry hair, with the applicator brush) : If you have very little grays and wish to target them individually, you can do so with the applicator brush you will find in the box. On dry hair, target your grays and let the temporary color gel sit for 40 minutes.
  • My tips to target just the few grays you might want to hide (on dry hair, with the applicator brush) :
    If you have very little grays and wish to target them individually, you can do so with the applicator brush you will find in the box. On dry hair, target your grays and let the temporary color gel sit for 40 minutes.
  • My deep treatment tip if you want to save time:
    If you apply the Temporary color gel only onto your roots or in a very targeted way, take this opportunity to apply a deeply nourishing mask onto your lengths to protect them from the color and to provide deep care during the leave-in time.
Can the Temporary color gel be used on keratin treated hair ?
Straightening treatments can create a barrier around the hair fiber which might alter the way color pigments grab onto the hair. The efficiency of the Temporary color gel can be affected.
Can the Temporary color gel be used on hair that have been colored with henna or vegetal hair color in the past?
Henna creates a barrier around the hair fiber and prevents color pigment hold. The efficiency of the temporary color gel can be affected.
