Blonde lets get to the bottom of it!

A good example of why we some times struggle to attain a really nice natural level of Blonde   is there are so many factors that have to be considered, first and foremost hair natural level,target level the colour we want colour.

Unfortunately the over the counter box can be misleading in the way they are presented don’t be taken in by packaging or the shade on the box

Some stylist just don’t fully comprehend the lifting process,

Choice of product is key be it professional or a store purchase.

Any natural level darker than level 6 this would be a [Dark Blonde] will not lift to natural Blonde level 9 it will always have a tendency to be to warm orange or yellow.

Why because of the underlying pigment exposed. With a natural level 6 expecting more than a level 9 from a permanent tint colour is still pushing things in most cases you will always be fighting warmth.

Even using a 40 volume peroxide and a high lift Tint level 9 is max although many colour companies claim 4levels of lift with 40 volume that only takes you to a 9 why?

We have to lift through level 6 then level 7 then level 8 finally 9 so it does not go 4 levels so 6 to level 10 is attainable.

So we have to see through what some companies portray natural less harmful chemistry it is not always the case adding natural oils or waxes to protect scalp, to make application easier are all part of this process portraying that oils protect add shine.

This is why knowledge research are key and empowering when it comes to colouring hair and the choices we make on products must go beyond what the sales rep or promotion material say.

Consider this would a hair colour with a low volume of Ammonia be less harmful than products posted as being herbal natural but don’t fully disclose what they have in the them or where they are sourced from i find the idea of colour that works miracles in 10 minutes should be seriously wondered about!

It is also key to have a consultation with a stylist ask questions  i try on this site to inform both hairdressers  and the client be clear about what you want be clear about your expectation be clear about the upkeep maintenance.

I read so many articles that give misleading information or partial information on colouring,

yes skin type eye colour they are all things to consider in the consultation phase ask for swatches to be held against you face does it bring out your eyes? do the pop! home colour a part from researching the product maybe try on a wig see if it works for you!

We have products claiming to be organic all natural deep condition and so on but really think what we are asking these products to do then decide if they can be really that wonderfully healthy and natural recently i was reading about an all natural product but in its description stated a blend of all natural flowers, vegetables, with added hair dye!da it’s all in the print. get informed. then go Blonde with the knowledge of what your doing or having done.
