Expressing yourself with hair colors is super fun! What's even more fun, is the zero commitment hair makeup gives you. You can try out different looks and combine different colors to fit your palette.
But with several brands on the market, which is the best hair makeup to get? In this blog article, we will be comparing the features of two brands; Curlfit temporary hair colors vs. Good Dye Young Poser paste.
What is Hair Makeup?
Hair makeup is a cosplayers dream come through. Just as the name implies, it’s makeup but for hair! They’re colors that are designed to change your hair color regardless of how dark your hair is- without using bleach. They’re also made to rinse off in one shampoo - so you can wash your hair color off whenever you want.
What are the different kinds of hair makeup?
When it comes to hair makeup, there are several varieties available. From hair color wax to hair color sprays and color creams and hair chalks, there are a lot to choose from.
They’re made from different ingredients and manufactured in different ways- with some brands being 100% vegan while others are not. Let’s look at Gooddyeyoung poser paste and Curlfit hair colors as an example.
What are Curlfit hair colors?
Curlfit temporary hair colors are designed to color your hair without you needing to reach for bleach and don’t contain any damaging ingredients like ammonia or peroxide.
What are Curlfit colors made from?
Curlfit colors are made from nourishing ingredients like argan oil, silk protein, panthenol and almond oil. These ingredients are sourced from local manufacturers in Africa and they nourish and strengthen your hair structure from the inside out.
Curlfit colors your hair by coating the top layer of your hair strands like makeup unlike semi-permanents hair dyes. This makes them non-damaging. It has a creamy, lightweight, and easy-to-handle consistency. They are also vegan and cruelty-free. Here is a close-up image of the green hair makeup from Curlfit.
What is Gooddyeyoung Poser paste?
Good Dye Young's Poser paste is a thick hair color wax that feels a little like play dough. Because of this consistency, it takes a little bit more effort to apply to your hair.
What is Gooddyeyoung’s Poser paste made from?
Poser paste has sunflower extract which prevents hair breakage and denatured alcohol which is a drying agent that helps the formula dry quickly once it’s applied. This makes application a little bit tricky since it may dry before you’ve had time to put it in your hair correctly. Here is a close-up image of the poser paste color.
Curlfit Vs Gooddyeyoung Poser Paste: Who is each hair makeup made for?
The texture and color payoff is the core feature of hair makeup, especially if you’re going to be using it in a daily basis. Both Curlfit and Poser paste position themselves as hair color brands that cater to all hair textures.
Both brands also brag about showing up extremely well on Jet black hair, which is a common feature with hair makeup. So far, both brands seem pretty similar with regards to this so we’ll be going a little bit deeper to find out their differences.
Lets compare the purple poser paste and Curlfit's purple hair makeup, on black type 4 hair in a twist-out hairstyle.
Gooddyeyoung Poser Paste Results :
The color payoff shown is HUGE and a really cute plum purple. But on closer inspection, we can see the hair texture it produced looks dry, static, and frizzy.
We can also see the finished product is spotty, which makes it look a bit unnatural ( like hair chalk). Now let's look at the same hairstyle using purple Curlfit hair color.
Curlfit hair makeup results :
We can see a lot of movement with flawless coverage from the purple hair color which is the biggest difference between Curlfit and Poser paste. Curlfit hydrates and accentuates your curl pattern and does not strip your hair of its natural luster or elasticity. This just shows how moisturizing and non-damaging Curlfit colors are.
Winner : Curlfit colors.
Which hair makeup has the least color flaking issues?
Let’s face it - just like we don’t like dandruff, nobody wants flakes coming off when you play in your hair. Which brings us to another difference between Curlfit and the gooddyeyoung poser paste. Both brands hardly have any issues when it comes to color transfer even with how normal it is for hair makeup to get on your hands after the coloring process.
However poser paste customers mention how badly the color flakes and falls everywhere once your hair is dry. You can see some mentions from Sally’s beauty regarding this here :
And from their own website here :
Curlfit colors on the other hand do not flake, neither does it sprinkle onto surfaces in tiny particles.
How easy is it to wash off the Gooddyeyoung Poser paste and Curlfit colors?
Hair makeup is expected to wash off in just one shampoo. That's why we call them "no commitment" colors.
Both GoodDyeYoung poser paste and Curlfit hair colors wash off, but you may have to use a lot more effort to wash Poser paste off if you have lighter colored hair (up to five shampoo sessions).

Another one :
curlfit colors only require one thorough wash to get all the color off your hair. It also maintains your natural curls and makes your hair soft. Almost like a conditioner!
Poser paste leaves your hair the same texture when it was colored – dry, frizzy, and sticky. But a long deep condition will fix that for you.
Winner : Curlfit colors
Which hair makeup brand feels the best in your hair?
In terms of color payoff, both temporary hair colors from Good Dye Young and Curlfit are super vibrant on Jet black hair. But at what cost?
Because of the poser paste's "playdough-ish" consistency - like a hair color wax, it's almost impossible to get a even finish without using a generous amount of color as it can be difficult to spread.
Poser paste is super thick. So you're likely to apply too much of the color wax at once - then it becomes difficult to even out with your fingers, since it dries up fast. Which makes the color look chalky. A couple of users also said trying to even the color out by combing it only makes the color fall off, until all the color is gone.
With curlfit colors on the other hand you only need a little bit of color to get the brightness you need. A single 100g jar of Curlfit can get you 2-3 uses if you have long natural hair and its cream based, so it’s super easy to spread in your hair
Its creamy lightweight consistency makes application a breeze. Results are usually very realistic, clean, and even-toned since it doesn't dry up fast and clump your hair together like GoodDyeYoung's poser paste.
Winner : Curlfit colors
