Mood Switch


Punky Colour Mood Switch will transform your hair into a virtual kaleidoscope of color that instantly changes at 83°F/28°C. Cool down and the color spontaneously changes back to the original color shade. Exposed back to heat, your hair will immediately switch to another color right before your eyes.

Express your individuality with Punky Colour Mood Switch. Slice in different colors and watch them react to any heat source and back again. To change it up, simply wash your hair to start it all over again or to change up the mix.

The most dramatic results of Punky Colour Mood Switch are experienced on light blonde or bleached hair. Mood Color is also more effective on hair that has been damaged by perms, tint, relaxers or straighteners.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BOOKLET INCLUDED WITH THE PACKAGE. USE THE RECOMMENDATIONS AS OUTLINED IN THE BOOKLET. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE REFER TO THESE FACTS.


Q: Is Punky Colour Mood Switch Safe for Everyone?

A: We do not recommend that the product be used on children under the age of 10 and never on animals.

Q: Is this the only heat reactive product on the market?

A: No. The original product was only available to Professionals and had to be mixed at the time of application.

Q: Are the colors intermixable?

A: No. They maintain a perfect color balance as premixed. If you add a different color to your base color the product color balance is likely to shift to an incompatible color or to become very dense and muddy looking.

Q: Is there a processing time?

A: No. Apply directly to the hair and use a blow dryer to allow it to adhere to the hair.

Q: Does Punky Colour Mood Switch stain the hair?

A: No. The product dries on top of the hair. Its composition does not allow the product to penetrate, however if the hair is extremely damaged Punky Colour Mood Switch may need more than one shampoo to be removed.

Q: Does the product stain the skin, scalp or clothing?

A: Not likely. The product only coats or sits on top of whatever it’s put on. It’s recommended to wipe up residue immediately and to rinse off any clothing. A stain remover could also be used to help remove any product on clothing.

Q: How can I make the effects last longer?

A: Avoid excessive touching, combing or brushing of the hair. If you use it on extensions, the results may last longer but try to avoid long periods of heat which will cause the color to remain in the transition color and could exhaust the pigments sooner.

Q: How many applications can I get out of the 2 oz. jar?

A: Punky Colour Mood Switch was not intended to be used all over the head. Rather it is better as a special effect on selected sections, slices of hair, the fringe area, or as slices into the area around the frame of the face. It’s also dramatic when used just on the tips of the hair (1-3“) to create a dramatic halo effect. Its best use has been in placing it in weaved sections. The 2 oz. jar should be enough for 15-20 lightly weaved sections.

Q: My hair feels stiff and dry after using the product. What can I do to avoid this?

A: It could be that the amount of product you applied was too much and it heavily coated your hair. Try using less product. If hair is really dry to begin with you can apply the product to slightly damp hair to aid in moisture retention once the Punky Colour Mood Switch has been dried into the hair. This process should not dilute the color. Do not brush the hair, this will cause the product to flake off of the hair resulting in less color staying on the hair.

Q: I tried it on my medium brown hair and I didn’t see any color change. It just left my hair feeling stiff and sticky, super coated. What’s up with that?

A: Although Punky Colour Mood Switch can work on most natural hair colors it’s easier to see both the color and the transition color on lighter shades. It works best on light blonde or bleached hair. You might want to try blonde extensions colored with Punky Colour Mood Switch to see a dramatic result. When the product is over-applied the hair will feel sticky and stiff to the touch, but should still shampoo out easily.

Q: How long will the product stay in the hair?

A: Usually the transitioning effects last between 24-48 hours depending on how much exposure the color has with temperature extremes which includes touching and holding the sections where the color was applied. The color is only temporary but in some stubborn cases more than 1 shampoo may be necessary.

A: These products both contain color but they have totally different applications. Punky Colour is a semi-permanent color that lasts 20-30 shampoos; Punky Colour 3n1 is a color refreshing shampoo+conditioner that is used to refresh color not replace it.

Q: I wonder how well the Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner will work?

A: Remember you are using this product to refresh your hair color or to add tonal value to your natural hair color. Its effectiveness is based on the condition of your hair.

A: Shampoo with a strong cleansing shampoo or you can use dish soap. In both cases you should condition after do maintain the hairs integrity.

Q: Does the Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner have to be applied to a bleached head only?

A: It’s primarily a color refreshing shampoo + conditioner and usually the hair is bleached when an intense demi-permanent is applied. However the product can be used on hair which is not bleached to a limited effect. More for a shimmer or to impart a tonal effect. The intensity is determined by the degree of porosity the hair has.

Q: Does Punky Colour 3n1 DIAMONDISTA tone only or will it give the silver/platinum look that is currently in high demand?

A: This product does not replace a demi-permanent color; it is a color refresher; so it acts more like a toner than a demi-permanent color. It will impart the silver/platinum shades on bleached hair.

Q: Does the Punky Colour 3n1 DIAMONDISTA it help keep your hair gray or black?

A: Works best if you have bleached hair so the true color can come through. It will not change your natural hair color but it will add a hint of silver to your hair color. Any level of brown or black may become slightly darker but unless the hair is very porous (damaged) not be noticeable.

Q: Can the Punky Colour 3n1 MOCHANIFICENT be used to touch up roots and or cover grey?

A: This is a brown color refreshing shampoo + conditioner. Only permanent hair color will cover grey; this product will blend grey not cover it. It will not touch up roots. You need peroxide and permanent hair color to do that.

A: It’s a color refreshing shampoo + conditioner. It can be used wherever you shampoo your hair

Q: Does the Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner intensify if you leave it in longer?

A: You will get more deposit if you use it past the 3-5 minutes recommended in the instructions however, it does not guarantee it will last longer and unlike a demi permanent color, it may not deposit pigment uniformly as it has a conditioning shampoo base not a true color base.

Q: Does the Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner work on black hair?

A: If you have “virgin” hair, hair which is not chemically compromised in any way, then the only benefit you probably will experience is very conditioned and shiny hair. There might be some tonal effect but it really depends on the degree of porosity (damage)

Q: Do they use Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner it to dye the hair in the vid? Is it also good for pastels?

A: Yes. Pastels are soft and delicate tones. These were created to give maximum color quickly within 1-5 minutes. You could not control the deposit if you want to refresh pastel tones. The result would be somewhere in between a pastel and full color tone. More on the intense side. We do not recommend diluting the product in any fashion. This will upset the balance ratio of the dyes used along with the conditioning and shampoo benefits in the formula.

Q: Can we use the Punky Colour 3n1 shampoo + conditioner with highlights with the Flamingo Pink?

A: Whichever color you use on your Flamingo Pink highlights will affect the Flamingo Pink highlights. And if you do use the 3N1, I would basically apply and then take it off. Don’t leave it on for more than 1 or 2 minutes.

We recommend gloves for your hands and possibly use a sink or a less exposed area to rinse off the product. If the product does come in contact with tile or grout, rinse off immediately and use a bleached based cleanser.

A: Punky Colour products carry customary warnings to not be used around the eyes.

On Natural hair color or hair that has not been chemically treated in any way, the result gives hair a healthy conditioned glow and a shimmery tonal value.
