Never, both #mydentity Permanent and Demi-Permanent color were specifically formulated to work with #mydentity Developer (Demi-Permanent 6V and Permanent 10V-40V). I cannot guarantee consistent results, or the fabulous Lavender Fragrance if another brand’s developer is used.

How long does #mydentity color last?
Like all color lines, there are a variety of factors that play into color longevity including what type of color you used, the specific application and process, the client’s hair type (porosity, level, care, etc.).
For most people, tones last:
up to 50 shampoos for #mydentity Permanent haircolor;
up to 50 shampoos for #mydentity Demi-Permanent haircolor;
up to 25 shampoos for #mydentity Direct Dye
How does the color fade?
With #mydentity, color fades true to tone.
What is the best advice to maintain color longevity?
#Hairbesties, remember density, texture and porosity will always affect lifting capabilities, your final color result as well as color longevity. Be sure to assess your client’s hair thoroughly prior to application. If you notice the hair is very porous – I recommend evening out the porosity with a quick conditioning before applying your color formulation. It is also important to apply to dry hair, weigh your color formulation to achieve the most accurate mixing ration and process for the full amount of time. Using a sulfate free shampoo will also help with color longevity
