CLEAR COLOR????

That's STOOPIT! That's like the ultimate in double talk...

Yeah, well it works...

My hair is naturally this weird sandy color. Not the cute sandy, but the dull sandy. The color that ALWAYS looks dry, no matter HOW much oil, sheen, gloss or grease is in it...UNTIL I learned about clear semi-permanent color THAT CONDITIONS!!!!!

Every now and then I'll use a clear semi-permanent to help with shine, and to add continuous conditioning.

The prices range from @ $4.00 a bottle to $20.00 for an application. I'm in love with Paul Mitchell professional hair color - Inkworks (@ $12.00) This stuff is some Soul Train, let me tell YOU...

Le "blurb" says...INKWORKS is the ultimate fun and professional semi-permanent color solution. • Vegetable Base—a gentle formula of pure vibrant pigments is suspended in a conditioning base of pure vegetable proteins, moisturizers, and shine-enhancing agents • Semi-Permanent Hair Color—incredibly vivid, non-damaging shades last up to three weeks (depending on hair’s porosity)

How does INKWORKS work? INKWORKS sits primarily on the outside of the hair shaft; the greater the porosity and the lighter the base color the more intense the end result. Conditioning proteins, especially in an acid base, have an affinity for the hair fiber making INKWORKS a long lasting, shiny temporary color.

I like the idea of semi-permanent color. They're ammonia free and the conditioning lasts a lot longer...'Specially when I get a little lax with the deep conditioning...

Yeah CLEAR COLOR sounds pretty funny, but it's actually like those lamination products. It sits on the surface of each hair and creates this clear shiny film. It also makes your hair a bit thicker and keeps all the good stuff from moisturizers or conditioners you use before lamination in your hair for longer.
