With the rise of box dyes and people resorting to colouring their own hair mainly to save money has resulted in confusion between semi, demi and permanent hair colour.
I will try to explain the difference in this article.
Choosing a hair colour can be difficult due to the fact that everyone’s hair is different. Your colorist will have definite opinions about demi-permanent colour versus semi-permanent colour and will consider individual factors such as the degree of porosity that determines how readily your hair will accept colour, how vivid your natural colour is the overall health of your hair, and your hair wash habits.
The primary distinction between semi-permanent and demi-permanent hair colours is their durability after repeated washings and exposure to sunlight. In comparison to permanent hair colour, both methods are temporary, with demi-lasting up to 30 washes and semi-lasting about 5. Here’s how to determine which method is optimal for your hair and your desired hair colour results.
HOW DOES SEMI-PERMANENT COLOR WORK AND WHAT IS IT?
Permanent hair colour contains potentially damaging ammonia, whereas semi-permanent hair colour does not. It is used by mixing it with a low-volume developer that activates hair colour with a low level of peroxide to lift the outer cuticle so that pigment can lodge there without affecting the innermost fibres of the cortex. Before shampooing, demi-permanent hair colour is typically applied to dry hair to deposit pigment on the surface layer without lightening the natural hair colour.
WHO IS BEST SUITABLE FOR TEMPORARY COLOR?
If you’re looking for a temporary hair colour change, or if you want to shift your tone from cool to warm or vice versa, demi-permanent is the most effective and least damaging option. It affects natural hair sufficiently to darken it and is an excellent choice when grey hairs begin to appear, making them appear as natural highlights that blend with your overall colour – with less distinction as hair grows out. Additionally, demi-permanent colour is ideal for revitalising faded ends. If you’re curious about how to care for bleached hair, demi-permanent colour is an excellent way to revitalise brassy and dull blondes.
HOW DOES SEMI-PERMANENT COLOR WORK AND WHAT IS IT?
Low-maintenance and short-lived, semipermanent hair colour requires little upkeep. This temporary, “deposit-only” hair dye is also known as a toner, stain, and gloss. In contrast to demi-permanent colour, semi-permanent colour does not require a developer and is typically applied to freshly washed hair. It does not alter the hair colour as much as it adds depth and vibrancy to the tone.
WHO BENEFITS MOST FROM SEMI-PERMANENT COLOR?
If you’re new to colouring your hair, or a “colour virgin” in salon parlance, semi-permanent hair colour is the best option. It is the most temporary hair colour method – and the least risky as it can be washed out quickly and easily if the results aren’t to your liking. If you’re curious about how often you can dye your hair, this method gives you more flexibility. It’s also the best way to indulge adventurous fashion whims as often as weekly and makes for full-spectrum Halloween hues.
Semi-permanent hair colour can also prevent blonde hair from turning brassy or red, as well as keep red from fading, which is typically the first colour to lose its vibrancy. Curious about how to eliminate brassy hair? Your colorist can add semi-permanent colour to a masque or conditioner to create a personalised toner for use between salon visits.
And since we’re talking about colour, you may be wondering:
WHAT IS LONG-LASTING HAIR COLOR?
Permanent hair colour involves the use of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide to lift the hair cuticle and alter the structure of melanin and keratin, the pigment and protein responsible for hair colour and texture, respectively, in order to deposit dye. Permanent hair colour can lighten, darken, or alter the tone and lasts up to eight weeks, though monthly root touch-ups may be necessary. Permanent colour can completely cover greys.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
If you’re considering experimenting with trendy hues such as pink, blue, or purple, blonding expert Cyd Charisse suggests the following: The longer you wait between colour services, the greater the fading of your hair colour. Not willing to commit? “Try small pops of colour on layers underneath that can be hidden or featured less prominently if they fade, or use clip-ins for the ultimate commitment-free method.”
Your preferred cleanser and frequency of washing will determine how long your colour will last. Many of our tips for coloured hair, such as washing less frequently or opting for a detergent-free formula, will help you get more bang for your buck. You will consider New Wash, which is often referred to as the colorist’s soulmate, to be your hair’s best friend, especially when it comes to preserving the colour and keeping your hair looking and feeling absolutely brilliant with intense shine.
Washing and conditioning hair after a perm, colouring, balayage, relaxer or texturing is not enough any more. The same clients who come into the salon today, want to leave with drastic (healthy) softer, silky hair. Social media and home treatment kits and the daily use of high temperature straighteners, have meant that any salon worth its salt need to invest in OLAPLEX!
Clients want to go from brown to platinum in less than two sittings had to contend with the dryness and damage caused to their hair so as to covet platinum blondes, perms, red hair and more, all came with a hefty price. Inspired by the desire salons and hairdressers have to take their clients to the next level, without damage, is why OLAPLEX exists.
The Olaplex range repairs the 5 types of damage listed below:
• Chemical services such as colouring, perms, relaxers and keratin treatments
• Thermal damage from electrical tools such as straighteners, curlers and hairdryers
• Mechanical damage from brushing, tugging and styling hair
• Environmental damage including the sun and humidity, extreme weather and pollution
• Lifestyle or Physiological changes including age, stress, undergoing medical treatment, hormone changes
What is the hype about?
Non-toxic, vegan and cruelty free, the allure of Olaplex products lie in their proven results and critical acclaim. Used by salon professionals all over the world, Olaplex has been featured in the prestigious pages of Glamour, USA Today, Refinery29, Teen Vogue, Byrdie, InStyle – and many more besides.
The Olaplex range features a whole suite of treatments which have appealed to celebrities, hair professionals and beauty gurus of all ages. And when we say beauty gurus, we mean readers like you.
Why should salons use OLAPLEX?
You’ll notice that the range has a key focus on one word in particular – Bond. From bond building to bond maintenance and smoothing… Olaplex are pretty bond obsessed. Ok, we get it, they’re very sleek and sophisticated products, but there are no classified secrets behind the science here. To explain the importance of the bond obsession, it’s time for a quick introduction to hair biology.
Hair is fibre. Composed of the keratin protein, your hair consists of millions of disulfide bonds, which hold the protein structures of your hair shaft together. These bonds can be damaged by high levels of heat, chemical treatments, excessive brushing and environmental exposure. Basically… anything from hair straightener addiction to extreme colour treatment can interfere with the long term health of your hair, as these stressors can damage your hair bonds.
Step in Olaplex. Each product contains the patented ingredient bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate. It sounds super fancy but long story short, this ingredient works on a molecular level to help repair the disulfide bonds in your hair.
Olaplex works on all hair types and textures. If you get your hair coloured professionally, your stylist may have even recommended using Olaplex between salon visits to help nurture your hair after your treatment.
The holy grail of hair is to fix damage, which is where OLAPLEX started. Today, we have a line of 9 products that address rebuilding hair while tackling other hair concerns such as moisture, frizz, and heat protection. Our heritage began in the salons, inspired by the needs of professionals, and has grown to the at-home line we have today because of it. You ask, and we listen. There are no other products other than OLAPLEX on the market that rebuild broken bonds in the hair, period. Only OLAPLEX products can take that bond-building technology and pair it with moisture, smoothing, and protection.
OLAPLEX has elevated salon services forever, and with more use and heads of hair treated with OLAPLEX, we develop products based on clients’ needs.

Can I leave Olaplex on overnight?
Yes, you can leave Olaplex No.3 on overnight, but ensure it’s wrapped up so it doesn’t come into contact with your face or eyes.
WHAT’S A BOND?
Our hair contains millions of disulfide bonds.
These bonds give the hair its structure, strength and stability. When disulfide bonds are broken, it results in damage.
OLAPLEX restores damaged and compromised hair by repairing from the inside out with our patented single ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate.
Once all the bonds are intact and in alignment, you have healthy, beautiful, shiny, touchable hair.

Running a blog requires planning and it’s hard work, but with hard work comes results. I gained 1k blog followers in 2 months, and today I’m going to share some of the steps I took to achieved this. I truly did not expect to gain 1k followers in 2 months, but this is what happens when we have self doubt and don’t take action.
But I was thinking back to when I started blogging in September 2010 it was easier than because blogging was just getting popular. Even though, I still would have really appreciated a post like this. As some sort of motivation and guidance.
If you are here because you think I’m going to give you some secret code that gives you those followers overnight, you are looking in the wrong place. This happened from hard work and dedication and nothing more. It wont happen overnight and it didn’t for me as you can see, I have been blogging a long time. The tips I share are the things I did to make this happen. It’s up to you to take action and put in the hard work to see the results.
CONSISTENCY IS REALLY IMPORTANT
I talk often about consistency, but that’s because I want to stress how important it is. Having a blogging schedule and sticking to it something that helped me to see my audience grow. I post anywhere from five, six or seven times a week. Thats a lot of content. As I said in the intro, its not easy and it wont ever be easy being consistent.
I constantly feel like I am writing and scheduling content. I will touch on social media a few points down but you should also be consistent with Social media too. Any platform that you can use to spread awareness for your blog you should use. Utilise it if it’s there.
TRY INTERACTING WITH OTHER BLOGGERS
One of the most important things to do if you are part of the blogging community is interaction. You won’t ever grow if you don’t interact and support others. When I first started in 2010 blogging was just getting popular, so getting followers was easier, but with the growth of social media and ‘snippet’ such as twitter attracting followers have become more competitive, so thing such as ‘Tasty Headers’ to attract that click is all the more important. Its a two way street blog writer want new folowers, interesting topics to re-tweet so they can gain more followers also.
Yes, you will get traffic to your site from people other than bloggers but you need that blogging community behind you in order for your blog to be successful.
HOW DOES SOCIAL MEDIA HELP?
Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are the main places where a lot of my social media traffic comes from. Pinterest and TiKTok is another social media platform that is great to gain traffic to your blog. To reach a professional audience Linkedin is also a very good patform.
A shoutout for Youtube, if you can get over 1000 followers, you are given a community page were you can post your blog links.
Linking into the point I made about consistency, its just as important to be consistent on your social media pages too.
UPGRADING MY WORDPRESS PLAN
About a 9 month into rebranding my blog I decided to upgrade my WordPress plan to a premium plan. This was probably one of the best things I could have done, it gave me access to be able to add ads onto my blog and it gave me access to premium themes. The premium plan is worth it for people who have just started but want to take their blog further.
I am still decided whether to upgrade to the WordPress business plan. This will allow me to take my blogging to the next level. With the business plan it allows you to download and use plug ins, such as Yoast SEO. Which is a tool that tells you how you can improve your posts to help with google ranking. Which in turn helps with traffic and followers.
Its something you should consider but make sure you can afford it, especially if you are wanting to take your blogging more serious and grow your following.
RELATABLE CONTENT IS KING
An important thing to remember when wanting to grow your following is posting relatable content. Do your research and see what’s going on in the world and what people are searching for, and then blog about it. A lot of the time I write about what I’m going through. I wont necessarily say on the post that its from personal experience or something I am struggling with at the time, but that’s what I do. There are ideas and inspiration all around us.
THERE IS NO PROBLEM IN BROADENING YOUR BLOG NICHE
Being vulnerable goes a long way with readers. They are able to connect with you on such a deeper level if they know you are being open with them.
I’ve had many conversations with other bloggers about this, but I think it’s so important that as bloggers we are also flexible in what we write about. I think it’s so great having a blog niche, but don’t be scared to step out of it every once and a while. Don’t stress about writing something different, you don’t know how your readers will receive it unless you just do it. You will note from my blog that I cover a wide variety of topics.
These are just a few things I have done to grow my following. Please remember that these things worked for me. I hope they help you too!
Thank you for 1k followers I want to take some time at the end of this post to thank you for 1 thousand followers. Rock on for the next 1000
Each disinfecting chemical has its own specific instructions. But an important general rule is that you shouldn’t immediately wipe a cleaning solution off as soon as you’ve applied it to a surface. Let it sit there long enough to kill viruses first,” says Donald Schaffner, professor and extension specialist in food science with expertise in microbial risk assessment and handwashing.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends daily disinfection for frequently touched surfaces such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards,toilets, faucets, and sinks.
The CDC also recommends the use of detergent or soap and water on dirty surfaces prior to disinfection.
If someone in your home is sick with flu-like symptoms, consider regularly disinfecting objects in your home, since SARS-CoV-2 has been shown to survive for 16 hours on plastics.
Whatever cleaning solution you use, let it remain in contact with the surface long enough to kill viruses and other pathogens. The time needed will depend on the chemical.
Don’t use different cleaning agents at the same time. Some household chemicals, if mixed, can create dangerous and poisonous gases.
How do I clean with bleach?
Bleach can be diluted with cold water to make an effective disinfectant against bacteria,fungi, and many viruses including coronaviruses. You can typically use one-quarter cup of bleach per 1 gallon of cold water—but be sure to follow the directions on the label of your bleach.
Make dilute bleach solution as needed and use it within 24 hours, as its disinfecting ability fades with time.
Non-porous items like plastic toys can be immersed in bleach for 30 seconds. Household surfaces that won’t be damaged by bleach should get 10 or more minutes of exposure.
Bleach solutions are very hard on the skin, and should not be used as a substitute for handwashing and/or hand sanitizer.
What about alcohol?
Alcohol in many forms, including rubbing alcohol, can be effective for killing many pathogens.
You can dilute alcohol with water (or aloe vera to make hand sanitizer) but be sure to keep an alcohol concentration of around 70% to kill coronaviruses. Many hand sanitizers have a concentration of about 60% alcohol, and Lysol contains about 80%; these are all effective against coronaviruses.
Solutions of 70% alcohol should be left on surfaces for 30 seconds (including cellphones—but check the advice of the phone manufacturer to make sure you don’t void the warranty) to ensure they will kill viruses. Pure (100%) alcohol evaporates too quickly for this purpose.
Containers of 70% alcohol should be sealed to prevent evaporation. But unlike bleach solutions, they will remain potent as long as they are sealed between uses.
A 70% alcohol solution with water will be very harsh on your hands and should not be used as a substitute for handwashing and/or hand sanitizer.
Can I use hydrogen peroxide?
Hydrogen peroxideis typically sold in concentrations of about 3%. It can be used as is, or diluted to 0.5% concentration for effective use against coronaviruses on surfaces. It should be left on surfaces for one minute before wiping.
Will vinegar kill off coronavirus?
Vinegar, tea tree oil, and other natural products are not recommended for fighting coronaviruses.
A study on influenza virus found that cleaning with a 10% solution of malt vinegar was effective, but few other studies have found vinegar to be able to kill a significant fraction of viruses or other microbes.
While tea tree oil may help control the virus that causes cold sores, there is no evidence that it can kill coronaviruses.
2. Meals Now, this is easy! Hair thrives on protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Get them from lean meats, leafy greens, nuts and beans
3. Blood Works Routine blood work can test your ferritin (iron stored in the blood) and vitamin D. Low levels can lead to hair loss, and the fix may be as simple as adding an iron or vitamin supplement.
4. Hormone Help Some women are genetically predisposed to female-pattern hair loss, and birth control pills can suppress overproduction of male hormones.
5. Stress Just breathe—seriously, it could help! Both sudden and chronic stress can halt hair growth. If you’ve been through a challenging experience (divorce, job change, death in the family or house move), hair should grow back.

Drive Targeted Traffic to Your events using social media
Live-tweeting events is a great way not only to gain new followers, but also to get people to your other social media links and website that is advertising your event. To do this, one of the quickest vehicles is your Twitter profile which needs to resonate with event attendees who are also tracking the event hashtag.
For starters you should Rewrite your Twitter bio to align with the event. For example, if the event is about a hair and beauty event, mention this in your bio and include the event hashtag.
Create a landing page for the event with a free download that complements the event. For example, offer a top-ten list of ways small businesses can master attracting more customers to there hair and beauty business or if you’re at a trade show, provide a code that attendees can use to collect a free prize at your exhibition stand. Put the link to the landing page in the website area of your Twitter, Instagram and facebook profile.
#Tweets that provides a link to the free download. Include the hashtag for the event and an eye-catching image so the tweet stands out to attendees.
On your website, create a Twitter wall of all tweets generated from the event. You can do this with tools like Tint, TweetWall Pro, Postano, Twitterfall, LiveTweetApp or Wall of Tweets. Embed the Twitter wall in a page on your site and include a sidebar with relevant information about what your event and how people can contact you, get a ticket, exhibit or advertise. Then tweet that link to other attendees.
1: Live-Tweeting Tips
Keep tweets concise.
Avoid splitting a thought into two tweets.
Remember to use @[name] when starting a tweet with a name.
Tweet your own content—photos, quotes and commentary.
Link to books or films mentioned.
Monitor other attendees who are tweeting. Retweet, favorite and reply to tweets and direct messages.
2: Showcase Your Services
There are a number of ways you can live-tweet about your services without spamming the event hashtag. I like to call this method the “sideways tweet.”
3: Generate Product Buzz
Use live-tweeting to generate interest for a contest or make an important announcement during an event. But make sure you’re not spamming the event hashtag.
In the tweet below, i3DCreatives announced the company was giving away a free 3D printer during an event and made sure to include the event hashtag.
Startups frequently benefit from live-tweeting at big technology events. You can build interest from people tweeting about your products and services throughout the event.
4: Capture the Attention of Journalists
Before the event, find out if any journalists or bloggers will be attending. Often, you can get a list of these people from the event organiser. Request this list a few days before the event.
Make sure you note their Twitter handles before the event and keep an eye on their tweets. Create a private Twitter list so you can track their tweets more easily. Be sure to retweet them when it’s relevant
If you’re launching a product or announcing important news at the event, let journalists know that you’re available for follow-up questions during and after the event. Create a digital press kit with high-quality photos and your press release and provide a link to your announcement page.
5: Connect With Influencers
One way to create relationships with influencers is to live-tweet their speeches. Make sure you’ve noted the correct Twitter handle for the speaker and then start tweeting important nuggets from the presentation. This provides valuable information not only for people at the event, but also for interested people who weren’t able to attend. Remember you can share to Twitter from I#nstagram, #snapchat, Google, #Pinterest #Facebook and LinkedIn
Your tweets also make speakers aware of you and your brand, and they may retweet them to their audience. This helps create a connection between you and the speakers.
You can even take it a step further and interview speakers to generate rich content for your followers and establish rapport with influencers. Forming meaningful connections with influencers can be a game-changing move for your event.
If you develop rapport with speakers for your event or exhibitors for your event, ask if you can interview them. In the video above.
To make a lasting impression, think about why you’re connecting with an influencer and what interests that person. If you’ve interviewed him or her on camera or recorded the audio, share the end product after the event. This then gives that person the opportunity to share it with others.
6: Establish a Reputation as an Expert
Depending on the event, you may be able to get transcripts of presentations ahead of time, as they’re sometimes included in press kits. If you maintain a blog that is relevant to the event, you may be able to get access to the press kit.
7: Create a e-press – influencer Press kit
The information in this kit can help you plan tweets that complement the presentation, such as relevant quotes, links to books, videos, movies or even images that you’ve branded with your company logo. Preparing tweets ahead of time helps you build your reputation with both attendees and non-attendees using the event hashtag.

8: Create Compelling branded Images
Because visually compelling images can go viral at events, creating branded visual content in advance can capture more attention for your brand. Also create blank-quote Twitter templates with your logo to capture important points from speakers.
Remember that graphics need to meet Twitter’s frame guidelines, so you’ll need more than one person to execute them quickly and effectively at an event. Try Canva you can download it to your phone.
9: How to Create a Brand Presence When You’re Not at the Event
You don’t have to physically attend an event to make an impact. If you’re unable to attend, you can still actively participate by reacting and responding to live-tweets from the event. Retweet, favorite tweets, ask relevant questions and create your own content, such as graphics of interesting quotes from the event.
If you’re lucky, most events are live-streamed over the Internet in real time, so you can follow the presentations as if you were in the room. This is a great option if don’t have the budget or time to travel to the event.
10: Create a Google alert to track whether any articles are written about your company. If you find one, live-tweet a link to the article with the event hashtag. Don’t forget to also share the article on other social networks to get the most mileage from the coverage.
Live-tweeting is only one of the main vehicle for streamlining information about an events. So if you create, manage or go to events go prepared with a tweeting strategy, you’ll likely increase your visibility with your target audience and also make valuable business connections.

Loyalty is not the same as it once used to be. People move on fast and forget faster and the best dis-loyality tool is the mobile phone because it pumps tempting offers and inform them of alternative and your competitor in seconds!
Admit it, we all use our mobile phone search tools like our life depended on it.
One of the problems many small businesses face is the challenge to stay current, modern and up to date. The temptations to scale up and expand instead of focussing on their core brand and what they stand for is often erased from any growth plans. For example, although I enjoyed the odd facial a this local beauty salon, I never quite figured out what they really stood for because they seem to offer all sorts of bits and bobs in the salon.. I take many felt the same way…
So I am going to focus on salons at the moment because I think they face a growing challenge each day from the swelling mobile provider.
How about your salon? Sometimes it is tempting to scale up by trying to innovate, hire more and invest in the next best computer systems, but if you take your eye off your brand’s core values, your clients will slowly start to move away from you.
That of course, does not mean you are not to leap from your current situation to the next stage (whatever that might be), but as you do, here are some things worth remembering…
If you don’t know what your salon brand stands for neither do your clients (we do hair is not enough) Perhaps you should consider another way that you can grow stronger and that could be by scaling back to basics.
If you don’t know where you are driving, chances of arriving anywhere is pretty slim
The latest computer systems do not mean higher sales, could have the opposite effect
Here are 5 tips to get you started on the right path to scaling back:
Ugly flyers can give you more than you need to get busy on a Tuesday afternoon and ultimately.
Every quarter, it is wise to unplug, review, reevaluate, then set in goals, visions, and targets.
It is wise to craft your salon message than learn how to communicate with your clients. Use Social media it can be cheaper andvery effective.
If you stop promotions and marketing you will cut the lifeline from your sales so don’t.
If you don’t understand your individual team member’s needs and aspirations you will always be having staff walkouts (their needs is not what you think they are) Keeping your staff happy can bring in more sales.
… so the moral of this message is, when you are thinking about scaling up, remember, it’s not always about expansions and latest technological innovations, think holistically, think outside the box and remember sometimes scaling back will give you the boost you need to eventually scale up.
After all, when you give a cat some cream they purr, keeping your customers and enticing them to sell your exceptional services is worth investing some quality thinking time each quarter and then acting upon it.
Happy scaling back and leaping from this to that onto making your clients happy.
