Frequently asked questions and answers

The Plantur 39 Colour Silver products contain powerful violet pigments that build up on the hair. These build up on the hair. The colouring effect intensifies every time you wash your hair and can be washed out gradually with a conventional shampoo. As such, Plantur 39 Colour Silver products have to be used regularly in order to achieve the desired colour effect and reduce the unwanted yellow hue in the long term. Leave the products on for 2 to 5 minutes depending on the desired colour intensity. Then rinse out thoroughly.

Yellow and violet are complementary colours in colour theory as they are opposite each other on the colour wheel. One property of complementary colours is that they can cancel one another out if they are mixed with each other as they will always give a neutral grey. The violet colour pigments in the Plantur 39 Colour Silver products are therefore necessary to take the yellow hue out of the hair and make it look silvery and shiny again.

There will be no discolouration of the scalp. The products in the Plantur 39 Colour Silver series contain cosmetic pigments that only build up on the hair: Neither the scalp nor hands will be discoloured when used.

The Colour Silver Shampoo from Plantur 39 also contains a Phyto-Caffeine Complex. This penetrates into the hair roots with each wash, providing them with sufficient growth energy. If used regularly, menopausal hair loss can be prevented.

If the Colour Silver products from Plantur 39 are used regularly, strong, violet colour pigments gradually build up on the hair, remove the yellow hue and give the hair a more cool and intense shade. Leave the products on for 2 to 5 minutes depending on the desired colour intensity. The longer the products are left on, the more effective the result.

If the colour result is more intense than you expected or the hair has a slight purple shimmer, it is recommended to reduce the amount of time the product is left in the hair or to only use the products for every other wash. Using a conventional shampoo also washes out the colour effect.

It is recommended to use a conditioner after washing the hair to properly care for it. Your hair is glossier, silkier and easier to comb. It is also believed that a conditioner is normally only used on the lengths and tips of the hair in order to avoid weighing the hair down and making it look lacklustre.

For best colour results, apply the Plantur 39 Colour Silver Colour Conditioner evenly throughout the hair, from the roots to the tips. Leave on for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the desired intensity. However, the conditioner does provide sufficient care in addition to the colour effect and the hair can be styled as usual.
