|Jade asks: |
I have naturally dark brown hair and over the years I have dyed it a very dark brown colour myself at home. This past year I have been very lazy with it and have left it so now it has returned to its natural colour with some slight copper tones on the ends because of heat damage with my straighteners. I now hardly straighten my hair so the colour alteration due to heat damage shouldnít be a problem, but I want to dye it a slightly lighter shade of brown. Iím aware that you canít go from brown to blonde doing it yourself but I just want to go a shade lighter than my natural colour - but how can I know that it wonít go auburn/ginger? Iím so scared of this and donít want to mess my hair up. If I did dye it I would stay with the same brand and specific type but just one shade lighter, is this possible? Iím reluctant to visit the salon because it costs so much, being a student, but do you think itís worth it?

Yes if the hair is virgin it is possible to go one shade lighter, at the very ends of your hair I would suggest using the same colour with a lower activator or oxidant. To be honest I would recommend leaving it to the professional when it comes to colour as doing it your self can be very messy, plus any mistakes and it will cost u more money in colour correction.

My client has white hair. I use mask 9.3 with 20 vol but it is not blonde enough what colour would you use and could I lift it with 30 vol and would it cover the white?
|Answered By: |
You could use 10.0 and this will give you a shade lighter. The colour may appear slightly lighter because youíre applying it to white hair. In some cases applying neat tint, for example using the 9.3 neat to the root area then applying your target shade will give you even coverage.
Hope this helps!
