PUNKY COLOUR 101 FAQs

3-IN-1 COLOR DEPOSITING SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER FAQ

These products both contain color but they have totally different applications. Punky Colour is a semi-permanent color that lasts 20-30 shampoos; Punky Colour 3n1 is a color refreshing shampoo conditioner that is used to refresh color not replace it. It fades with several washings with regular shampoo. The fade is tone on tone.
Depends on length of hair and number of times you shampoo a week. Since the product comes in an 8.5 oz. bottle and you use 1 oz. per application then you could use the product 8 ½ times. Shorter hair the less you would use so you could get double that number of uses.
Shampoo with a strong cleansing shampoo or you can use dish soap. In both cases you should condition after do maintain the hairs integrity.
It’s primarily a color refreshing shampoo + conditioner and usually the hair is bleached when an intense demi-permanent is applied. However the product can be used on hair which is not bleached to a limited effect. More for a shimmer or to impart a tonal effect. The intensity is determined by the degree of porosity the hair has.
That is why the product was created; to act as a color refresher for either permanent or semi/demi permanent colors
It’s a shampoo + conditioner so you need to wet the hair and apply it like a shampoo
It will make the hair appear more conditioned and shiny.
This product does not replace a demi-permanent color; it is a color refresher; so it acts more like a toner than a demi-permanent color. It will impart the silver/platinum shades on bleached hair.
Works best if you have bleached hair so the true color can come through. It will not change your natural hair color but it will add a hint of silver to your hair color. Any level of brown or black may become slightly darker but unless the hair is very porous (damaged) not be noticeable.
This is a brown color refreshing shampoo + conditioner. Only permanent hair color will cover grey; this product will blend grey not cover it. It will not touch up roots. You need peroxide and permanent hair color to do that.
It’s a color refreshing shampoo + conditioner. It can be used wherever you shampoo your hair
You will get more deposit if you use it past the 3-5 minutes recommended in the instructions however, it does not guarantee it will last longer and unlike a demi permanent color, it may not deposit pigment uniformly as it has a conditioning shampoo base not a true color base.
If you have “virgin” hair, hair which is not chemically compromised in any way, then the only benefit you probably will experience is very conditioned and shiny hair. There might be some tonal effect but it really depends on the degree of porosity (damage)
Yes. Pastels are soft and delicate tones. These were created to give maximum color quickly within 1-5 minutes. You could not control the deposit if you want to refresh pastel tones. The result would be somewhere in between a pastel and full color tone. More on the intense side. We do not recommend diluting the product in any fashion. This will upset the balance ratio of the dyes used along with the conditioning and shampoo benefits in the formula.
Whichever color you use on your Flamingo Pink highlights will affect the Flamingo Pink highlights. And if you do use the 3N1, I would basically apply and then take it off. Don’t leave it on for more than 1 or 2 minutes.
It will make the hair appear shiny and conditioned
This product works faster, stays longer and makes your hair more conditioned and healthier appearing
Except for temporary hair color, all other hair color dyes will stain skin and your shower or tile. We recommend gloves for your hands and possibly use a sink or a less exposed area to rinse off the product. If the product does come in contact with tile or grout, rinse off immediately and use a bleached based cleanser.
Punky Colour products carry customary warnings to not be used around the eyes.
All 3n1 Punky Colours are sulfate, paraben, ammonia, peroxide, PPD and gluten free. Its also vegan and tested on humans.
All 3n1 Punky Colour products are developed specifically for hair that has been pre-lightened or bleached. We took the most damaged hair and created a formula that would restore it to its natural softness, shiny and condition. These specific ingredients make the hair come alive with shine and body. On Natural hair color or hair that has not been chemically treated in any way, the result gives hair a healthy conditioned glow and a shimmery tonal value.
Punky Colour does not test on animals only humans

Mood Switch FAQ

Punky Colour Mood Switch will transform your hair into a virtual kaleidoscope of color that instantly changes at 83°F/28°C. Cool down and the color spontaneously changes back to the original color shade. Exposed back to heat, your hair will immediately switch to another color right before your eyes. Express your individuality with Punky Colour Mood Switch. Slice in different colors and watch them react to any heat source and back again. To change it up, simply wash your hair to start it all over again or to change up the mix. The most dramatic results of Punky Colour Mood Switch are experienced on light blonde or bleached hair. Mood Color is also more effective on hair that has been damaged by perms, tint, relaxers or straighteners.
We do not recommend that the product be used on children under the age of 10 and never on animals.
No. The original product was only available to Professionals and had to be mixed at the time of application.
No. They maintain a perfect color balance as premixed. If you add a different color to your base color the product color balance is likely to shift to an incompatible color or to become very dense and muddy looking.
No. Apply directly to the hair and use a blow dryer to allow it to adhere to the hair.
No. The product dries on top of the hair. Its composition does not allow the product to penetrate, however if the hair is extremely damaged Punky Colour Mood Switch may need more than one shampoo to be removed.
Not likely. The product only coats or sits on top of whatever it’s put on. It’s recommended to wipe up residue immediately and to rinse off any clothing. A stain remover could also be used to help remove any product on clothing.
Avoid excessive touching, combing or brushing of the hair. If you use it on extensions, the results may last longer but try to avoid long periods of heat which will cause the color to remain in the transition color and could exhaust the pigments sooner.
Punky Colour Mood Switch was not intended to be used all over the head. Rather it is better as a special effect on selected sections, slices of hair, the fringe area, or as slices into the area around the frame of the face. It’s also dramatic when used just on the tips of the hair (1-3“) to create a dramatic halo effect. Its best use has been in placing it in weaved sections. The 2 oz. jar should be enough for 15-20 lightly weaved sections.
It could be that the amount of product you applied was too much and it heavily coated your hair. Try using less product. If hair is really dry to begin with you can apply the product to slightly damp hair to aid in moisture retention once the Punky Colour Mood Switch has been dried into the hair. This process should not dilute the color. Do not brush the hair, this will cause the product to flake off of the hair resulting in less color staying on the hair.
Although Punky Colour Mood Switch can work on most natural hair colors it’s easier to see both the color and the transition color on lighter shades. It works best on light blonde or bleached hair. You might want to try blonde extensions colored with Punky Colour Mood Switch to see a dramatic result. When the product is over-applied the hair will feel sticky and stiff to the touch, but should still shampoo out easily.
Usually the transitioning effects last between 24-48 hours depending on how much exposure the color has with temperature extremes which includes touching and holding the sections where the color was applied. The color is only temporary but in some stubborn cases more than 1 shampoo may be necessary.
The darker the natural hair color you have the less visible Mood Switch is. Which means if you are bleached, blonde or very light brown Mood Switch will be more visible; medium brown to black very little color will be visible. For maximum intensity bleach is the best option.
Mood Color does not stain. It is a temporary color and does not penetrate the skin or hair. It might stain extremely dry skin but it’s highly unlikely.
It works on all hair textures but should be used on lightened or bleached hair for the most dramatic results.
Same answer as above. The darker the natural pigment the less Mood Switch will be visible
Only on Natural Remi Hair wigs. Synthetic or ordinary, natural hair wigs do not produce satisfactory results.
The applied color and transition color are noted on the package along with the expected results on selected natural hair color.
Mood Color is a temporary color and will not stain or transfer to other materials. It is easily removed with one shampoo. It should not be applied to wet or damp hair.
Since Mood Color is a temporary hair color it is easily removed after one shampoo.
Since Mood Switch is a temporary hair color you can remove the color with one shampoo and then choose another color immediately after you dry the hair.
