But such visual deception can save the Hobby lobby we need to say goodbye to covid-19 to return to our daily lives shirt and I love this day only until your roots become too long to sustain it—about three months, says colorist Marie Robinson—even if you’re J.Lo. “These products and techniques are only meant for an inch or so of root,” confirms Robinson, who has eponymous salons in New York and Miami and clients such as Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone. “Beyond that, it just gets too messy,” she adds. With much more social distancing looking likely, Robinson tells me I have three options: Semipermanent, demi-permanent, or permanent hair color, which sound awfully close to the three stages of a relationship. Semipermanent dyes coat the top layer of your hair, a protective sheath called the cuticle, but since their chemicals do not penetrate the middle layer (the cortex), which determines the color, they will not completely cover your grays. They will, however, blend with them, adding tone and shine that can last up to six washes. Demi-permanent dyes contain a small amount of peroxide, so the formula is able to penetrate the cuticle, and subtly color your hair, lasting between 12 to 24 shampoos. If you’re no more than 50 to 60% gray, demi-permanent is the way to go, suggests Danchaud. But if you’re a professional colorist—or a desperate woman like me who is nearly all gray and trapped inside her home—permanent color, which does not fade over time, is your best bet. Go-to brands, such as Clairol Nice N’ Easy Root Touch Up, which has been making the rounds on Instagram (and is out of stock in my shade on Amazon), contains the harsh chemical ammonia, which swells the cuticle, opening up the imbricated scalelike proteins so the dye can sink in. (Brands such as Madison Reed and Garnier offer ammonia-free formulas, although the alkaline chemicals that replace it can be equally corrosive, I’m told).

As there are no do-overs with permanent color, there is great risk in picking the Hobby lobby we need to say goodbye to covid-19 to return to our daily lives shirt and I love this right shade. “My advice is to message or DM your colorist, and ask, ‘What brand do you use and what color should I buy?’” Appleton suggests, which is the smart alternative to what I would have done: Choose the box based on the retouched photo of the model I most would like to look like. Danchaud also advises choosing a color that is one shade lighter than the picture on the box, which will also be easier for your real colorist to correct when you are, sigh, reunited.
