VIRAL® FAQs

How often can I use viral® colorwash®?
Start using viral® colorwash® right after your fresh color service. Continuous use adds and replenishes color, preventing color from looking washed out and faded. Alternate with viral® moisturewash,™ no color shampoo, to manage vibrancy of haircolor tones.

How long does the color last?
viral® colorwash® lightens and fades from the hair when subsequent shampooings are with a clear, no color shampoo. The durability of the product on the hair is dependent on the condition and porosity of the hair.

Will it cover grey hair?
viral® colorwash® will not cover grey hair.

Will it lighten dark hair?
viral® colorwash® will not lighten dark hair. It will add extreme bold tones to pre-lightened hair, and jewel-tones on darker color hair, based on selection of color.

If I have dark brown hair and I take for example the viral® extreme teal shampoo and use it on my hair will it turn my hair that color or a shade of that color?
The viral® extreme teal will show on dark brown hair only in the areas where it has been either highlighted or color treated and based on the porosity of the hair. It will look more jewel-like in tone on the darker hair.

On hair that has not been color-treated, the extreme teal will not hold to the newer hair at the crown of the head because the follicles are more compact there. It may add some jewel-tone color to the ends that are older and have faded and are more porous.

What do you do if you have 2 different highlights or fashion colors in your hair?
Which color do you choose?

Does viral® colorwash® stain the skin?
viral® colorwash® formulas were carefully formulated to maximize color deposition on the hair and minimize staining on the hands and scalp. As the hair is shampooed, the lather will become noticeably lighter/whiter. This indicates the color is being absorbed into the hair fibers. However, hand and scalp skin can stain slightly, especially if dry. If you do experience staining, simply wash area with a shampoo or soap without color.

Does viral® colorwash® stain fabric?
After the hair is washed and dried, color does not fade from the hair to stain clothing or bedding. If not completely rinsed from the hair, color may migrate from wet hair and skin to towels, clothing and bedding, but can be easily washed to remove. However, if colorwash® comes directly in contact with fabrics, including towels and clothing, it can stain.
