Frequently Asked Questions

Does TouchBack flake or rub off?

Can I use styling products with TouchBack?

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

TouchBack is temporary hair color and lasts until shampooed out. The marker delivers hair color for a minimum of 40-50 applications, depending on the amount of gray to be covered.
