To achieve exotic, vibrant semi-permanent results, hair must be porous or processed before application. For best results, use on pre-lightened hair. Use in conjunction with the Crazy Color Rainbow Shampoo and Rainbow Deep Conditioner to keep your hair looking healthy and extend the life of your colour.

Light, silver and white colours are advised to use the Crazy Color Ultra Violet No Yellow Shampoo to remove unwanted yellow and brass tones that develop in these shades over time.

The lighter your hair, the longer your wear. Formulated to last 8-12 washes with no colour fade. Requires no ammonia or alcohol and is a gentle alternative to permanent colouring. A ready-to-use formula that requires no peroxide (gloves required). Simply apply to treated hair for vibrant and deep shades.

  • Do I have to complete a strand test before using the colour?

It is advised to complete a strand test when using semi-permanent colour to make sure you are happy with the end result before committing to a completed style. Complete a patch or strand test on pre-lightened hair from platinum to medium blonde. You can choose a hidden section of hair to complete the test. Apply a small amount of dye to the wet hair, let it process for 15 minutes and rinse out for inspection. This can also be done to check for any allergies.


  • How do I check if I am allergic to the products?

Crazy Color is PPD-free and made with a gently, plant-based formulation which results in very few people experiencing adverse reactions. Completing a patch or strand test will determine if there are any complications or issues.


  • Do I have to pre-lighten my hair?

Crazy Color works best on hair pre-lightened to a level 9 or 10 so you can experience the full vibrancy and depth of colour for the maximum time frame. To illustrate the difference in tones please see the guide below:



Note: using darker shades of Crazy Color on levels 4-7 hair will give an all-over tone to the hair. These include darker colours such as Vermillion Red, Cyclamen, Peacock Blue, Pine Green, Aubergine, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Hot Purple, Ruby Rouge, Sapphire, Black and Natural Black.




Making Crazy Color last longer

Semi-permanent colour loses intensity after every wash and with environmental exposures. The question is how to maintain maximum vibrancy and depth for the maximum length of time?
It is recommended to pair your chosen Crazy Color shade with the Vibrant Shampoo and Rainbow Care Deep Conditioner. There are also a few simply tips that won’t cost you anything!
  • Wash hair with cold water – as cold as you can take! Cold water keeps the hair cuticles closed and stops your colour running out. Warm water is the enemy!
  • Shampoo as little as possible – semi-permanents will lose colour after each wash so avoid over-washing the hair. Dry shampoo is your new best friend.
  • No sunbathing – too much direct sunlight and UV exposure will strip all that colour right out.
  • Avoid swimming – chlorine is another nasty product that will strip the life and colour from your lovely hair.
  • High Heat Styling – try not to use high heat styling if possible. Use a styling tool with heat control and go down low!



Getting Rid of Colour:

We get it. You chose and applied a colour and you have changed your mind and no longer want it or you have had a colouring disaster. There are some steps you can take to get rid of the colour faster than its natural fading cycle.

Removing colour from the hair

  • It is recommended to use the Crazy Color Back to Base Color Remover, a sachet treatment removes Crazy Color shades and returns your hair back to its pre-lightened state before colour was applied. This colour remover needs to be used with peroxide.
  • Wash you hair as much as possible with a clarifying shampoo – each wash will begin the colour fading process and the more you do it, the more it will fade. Some recommendations include the Osmo Scalp Therapy Detoxify Shampoo, Malibu C Un-Doo-Goo Shampoo and the Dax Removing Shampoo. Avoid shampoos designed for dry, damaged or coloured hair.
  • Hot water – use to open the hair follicles and is guaranteed to speed up the fading process.
  • A salon – it is always recommended to visit a professional for advice and a service to remove unwanted colour.

Removing dye stains from skin

If you are left with some unwanted stains on your hands or scalp, there are a few steps you can take to quickly remove them. Be careful not to use these products near sensitive areas such as around the eyes.
  • It is recommended to use Salon Fuels Dye Remover Wipes to gently remove colour from the skin
  • Toothpaste – make a small amount into a paste using soap and water and apply to the skin using a cotton bud. Leave of for a few minutes and rinse off.
  • Alcohol – dab some rubbing alcohol on some cotton wool and rub on the skin.
  • Bicarbonate of soda – mix an amount with a small amount of water, apply to skin and gently rub.



Crazy Color was launched in 1977 in the midst of the punk rock explosion in Britain. In a time that anarchy and free expression ruled supreme, one hairstylist was growing tired of the same natural color palette. Renato Brunas was at the height of his hairdressing career and was set to push the boundaries of color even further when he developed a new range of rainbow shades. Thus Crazy Color was born and over 40 years later their ethos is the same – to express yourself unapologetically.
In every iconic pink bottle is a color that is ready to turn heads. Don‘t be the trend – make your own. Mix it your way to create a shade to match your style. Crazy Color’s range has expanded to 41 colors over the years and each decade gathers new fans. Each new and unique style shows that color has no limit.

    I used the fire color and my hair came out a bright beautiful pink. Its been over 3 weeks now and my hair hasn’t faded at all. Plus bonus is no damage to my hair when i colored it.

    Love it, this month i’m getting the vermilion red.

    I have used many products at home on my own hair but this is by far the easiest to apply and the silver is really silver…not just light blue. Watch out for the blue if you change your hair color often as I put the peacock and Capri blue in my hair and it never washed out for the next 4 months! Sticks like crazy! The colors remain bright and vibrant as long as you use correct shampoo with it.

    I love the crazy colour. Especially the Hot Purple. Stays in for over a month on my hair and best of all doesn’t damage my hair at all. How simple can it be! Can’t wait to try the graphite next.

    Been using these hair dyes for over 3 years now and the colours are always vibrant. What i love is the ability to mix more than one shade and you can actually see the colours used when you are in the sun

  9. Rated 5 out of 5


    I first bought Lavender and it literally looked like unicorn hair as it was lavender with hues of blue! Loved the result. It stuck on my hair for about 4 months (CRAZY!!!)

    I currently have on Peachy Coral and Blue Jade. Peachy Coral didn’t give off the desired result the first time. Second application looked totally awesome but sadly faded off after one wash – its now like a really light sort of almost blonde-ish pink. Blue Jade is fabulous.

    I also have Rose Gold from the metallics range which I am going to try next.
    Overall, i will highly recommend Crazy Color and i will not purchase any other brand of hair dye!

    My go-to direct dye brand! So affordable, super pigmented and lasts so long. So far I have tried and loved Fire Red, Orange, Coral Red, Cyclamen, Hot Purple, and Platinum. Crazy Colors has never let me down 🙂

    My new favourite hair dye brand! I’m so glad I discovered your website. I have applied the Hot Purple and application was so simple! The end result is an amazing and vibrant new mane for me.
