Dyes are color molecules previously developed, used in permanent staining to allow staining with a reflection.
The alkaline agent is responsible for opening the cuticle layer of the hair so that active ingredients such as hair precursors can penetrate the hair.
Antioxidants help prevent the pre-oxidation of color precursors during storage in a tube of hair cream.
Complexing agents involve potential metallic impurities, thus preventing an unwanted reaction.
