Best Answer

It is recommended that you wait 4-8 weeks between color treatments because the chemicals can damage your hair and you need to give your hair time to restore itself. You can apply the semi permanent hair color a couple weeks later, but make sure to condition your hair well and check with your stylist before taking that risk.

Depending on the type of hair color in your hair, it will either wash out over time, fade or grow off your hair. If you have temporary hair color on your hair it will wash out in 2 to 3 shampoos.

Does pastel wash out of hair?

Do you mean pastel hair dye? It depends on if you use a permanent dye or a semi-permanent. Semi-permanent hair dyes will wash out and fade over time; permanent hair dyes will stay in the hair until you cut it or dye it another color.
