Hi...I recently used Goldwell topchic 9N and mixed it equal parts with topchic 30 vol. cream developer. My roots came out a reddish tone which I do not like. My virgin color is between a 2 and a 3 (Dark...


it's only possible to lift 3 shades (like 3to 6, or 4 to 7) without taking undertones into consideration. To go from a dark brown (level 3) to a 9n you would have to pre-lighten your hair with an on the scalp bleach first. Then color with 9n and 20 volume

Bleached hair roots turned white the rest is orange


You cannot lighten "color" with "color". If you had to, and only had one color, you could possibly put color on the ends first, wait 10 mins and then apply to roots (which is difficult to do on your own hair) Virgin (uncolored hair) lightens MUCH faster than colored hair. alot of times the colored parts of the hair will never get as light as the roots, without using a differant product. This is why people go to salons :) Anyway, first try Matrix shampoo called "So Silver" (this will tone the hair. Its purple color neutralizes the orange. Most likely though, the color you used was a darker level of color than what your ends were and since you cannot lighten color with color, you get brassy orange. Go to sally's beauty supply, pick up some hair bleach, 20 vol. developer. mix together equal parts. wet your hair, lather with shampoo/conditioner mixture, and smush bleach mixture ONLY to your orange ends (NOT YOUR ROOTS)watch your strands fade from orange to light pale blonde and rinse as soon as it hits desired level (only takes a few minutes) Hope this helps.

How to rectify my hair colour used xxl absolute platinum roots are a lovely colour but rest of hair is orange suggestions in what i can do to rectify the problem


Where you tinting / coloring over a existing color?
It is real important that you navigate / calculate what your natural color level and what natural reflect your hair is. (Not artificially from a previous tint) Because tint is not total matt coverage like paint. Hair color wont tint over tint accurately. This is how many horrific bad colors are born.
If your eyes are blue or hazel & you have a fairer complexion that color is more feasible. If your eyes are brown and your hair is medium to coarser texture and very dark its a lot more complicated because you could throw scaling down (backwards) from lots of red to brassy copper to gold.
The actual formula needed is calculated on how many shade levels of lift counteracted by what reflect your lightened hair will throw. Not necessarily by what color the tint box says. The color shade on the box is a idealistic situation. If your having trouble following me or these complexities cut about 50 strands of hair at the nape (back of neck underneath your hair and put scotch tape around it. Then mix a minute amount of color and developer and you will understand me. This way you can at worse only screw up of 50 strands of hair (instead of everything attached to your head). Bad hair color jobs are expensive to fix & as I can see what we are working with a guess is a hazard. Don't take on almost mission impossible blindly.

WOW go to a salon if coloring your hair 1st you take your color and add it to the desired color that plus the color you want equals the color you get.color plus color is darker color.You may have to pre lighten then deposit you desired color with a low peroxide.find a beauty school they have l pic confused cosmologists over looking them.don't put too many chemicals on your hair you will look funny.

I have Matrix SoRed SoColor and I am a level 6. I am going to lighten my hair to a level 7. Can I deposit just the SoRed by itself or do I need to buy a SoColor in red level 7 then add in the SoRed or can...


when you're using so red the color you need to use a 20 volume creme developer.you miss that one the one so you put one ounce color one ounce developer and then you mix it thoroughly working on your hair from root to ends.can you process at 45 minutes you brant with cool water until the color rinses all the way to cure your hair runs clear then shampoo with professional shampoo and use lukewarm water and you wash your hair the longer your color will last you should only wash your hair 2 to 3 times at the most a week and I am a licensed cosmetologist.

Can I put Loreal Feria 93 on bleached hair which was done over a month ago and achieve the color on the box?


Golden blonde is safe for high lift blonde hair, if the bleached hair is lighter than the color on the box it should match normally.If the bleached hair is not as light as the box it can lighten it some and help at tones to your hair.

I use a demi-perm haircolor. Is it best to color my hair before using the keratriplex treatment, or color after the treatment?


you always want to color after. the karatin will lighten any artificial hair color and with demi it may ruin your hair so always color after, you will need to wait 3 months after color for another karatin treatment.

I'm using Goldwell 12BG which says 2+1 on the box. Is the formula 2 oz. of developer/peroxide to1 oz. of toner or is it 2 oz. of toner to 1 oz. of developer/peroxide and should I use 20% or 30%...


Ratio is always developer to color, so a 2:1 is 2 parts developer to 1 part color. Example mixture is 40 ml developer to 20 ml color.

30 vol gives you better control and less damage to your hair. If you have VERY dark hair (level 5/4 or below), you need to pre-lift and then apply the color. It sounds like you're not a trained stylist, so I don't recommend 40 vol as it lifts too fast for most people to get an even application, especially if you're applying it to your own head (since it takes longer to do generally speaking).

You can work in sections to preserve color and get a more even application. Simply mix enough color for one section at at time, apply and process, then rinse ONLY that section with water to stop the chemical process. Repeat on all other sections. Good luck!
