What is the difference between ColorMark and TouchBack?

Both offer the same 8 Classic Shades for touching up gray roots instantly. The only difference is the applicator. ColorMark is liquid temporary hair color that is applied with a soft-tip wand. TouchBack is applied with a wide-tip marker. As ColorMark's wand applicator is dipped directly into the liquid formula, it can be more effective on hair that is more than 75% gray. The wand will be slightly more saturated with hair color and, therefore, provide more coverage.

Does ColorMark flake or rub off?

ColorMark does not flake or rub off because it bonds to the hair. It is real temporary hair color, and can be brushed — unlike hair mascaras, gels, and spray-on powders, which only coat the surface.

Can I use styling products with ColorMark?

ColorMark can be used with all styling products prior to applying ColorMark. Hair spray can be used over it.

How long does ColorMark last?

ColorMark is temporary hair color and lasts until shampooed out. It delivers hair color for a minimum of 30-40 applications, depending on the amount of gray that needs to be covered.

Does ColorMark affect permanent hair color?

ColorMark does not change permanent hair color because it does not penetrate the hair shaft. However, it should be shampooed out before the next application of permanent color.

Does ColorMark work on dark roots?

ColorMark only colors gray roots. It cannot make dark hair lighter.

Are there any harsh chemicals in ColorMark?

ColorMark uses only certified temporary hair colors. There are no harsh chemicals — no ammonia or peroxide.

Can I use ColorMark on chemically relaxed or permed hair?

What is the comb for?

The comb acts as a skin shield at the hairline and temples. Slide the comb under the hair, as close to the scalp as possible, then apply ColorMark.
