Permanent Color
Permanent color gives you 100% complete coverage. Most permanent color uses peroxide (10 to 40 vol.) and ammonia. The downside is regrowth of new hair - it is a different shade and will leave a line of "demarcation", or regrowth.

Semi-Permanent Color
Color usually contains some ammonia and uses a developer of 10 to 20 vol.

Demi-Permanent Color
Uses peroxide in low vols. (under 10 vol.). Many have no ammonia and leave little damage. When the color fades, it does gradually so it leaves no line of demarcation

Semi-Temporary Color
These will last a short time (1-4 weeks). The usually incur no damage to the hair. You can expect about 40-60% gray coverage.

Temporary/ Color Rinse
Color lasts from one shampoo to the next and is deposited on the outside of the hair shaft.
