About the 1-2-3 System

  • The 1-2-3 System indicates the degree of permanence of the hair coloration. The following levels stand for:

    Level 1 for color that washes out
    Level 2 for color that lasts up to 28 washes
    Level 3 for permanent color

    Schwarzkopf & Henkel has tailored the 1-2-3 System specifically for your needs – because there is a wide variety of hair color products on the market, one can easily become confused. Simply orient yourself using the three levels – they are easy to read on the package, making it simple to choose the product that is right for you!
