Application

  • Determine your clients natural shade, percentage of grey and hair condition.

Consult with your client to select the correct shade. Are you wanting the same level, lighter or darker and do you need to cover or blend grey hair?

  • Decide on the tone desired. Whether warm, neutral or cool.

The color result is a combination of the clients natural shade, underlying pigmentation and hair dye.

  • Ascertain the volume of developer.
    Volume (Dependant on Base Color):
  • 5 volume: Toning
  • 10 volume: Up to 1 level & for depositing
  • 20 volume: Up to 2 levels (standard)
  • 30 volume: Up to 3 levels
  • 40 volume: Up to 4 levels

Mixation ratio for standard color range is 1:1 (one part color to one part developer) and for Ultra light range 1:2 (one part color to two parts developer).

  • When applying the color always wear gloves and divide the hair into 4 sections.

For virgin applications apply a generous amount of color to the root using subsections. Be sure all strands are covered with color. After completing the root area, apply the same formula to the midshaft and ends. Lift the hair to allow air circulation and oxidation. Start timing once the application is completed. For regrowth applications apply the color to the root area and visible regrowth.

  • Standard application timing, 30 minutes. Grey hair 45 minutes.

Do a strand test to check progress.

  • Rinsing. Emulsify color on hairline by gently rubbing some of the color from the hair on to the scalp. Apply water, lather and rinse thoroughly. Remove any remaining color stains on the skin.

Stubborn Grey Coverage

For stubborn grey coverage, 2 parts colour to 1 part developer, using 6% (20 volume) developer. Base colour can be added to the mix, to optimize colour retention. Pre-pigmentation - filler - can also aid colour retention for exceptionally stubborn grey hair.

Toning

Invision Ultra Lights can be used for toning. The best options are UL Titanium blonde, UL Ice Blonde and UL Ice Pearl Blonde. Mixation for toning is 1:1 with 1.5% (5 volume) developer. Coverage is soft, so there is no need to rush or do it at the basin. They are best used to achieve a nice clean blonde.

Ash reflect

Ash Cendre can be added to any colour mix to add more ash reflect. A ratio of 1 gram Ash Cendre to 10 grams of colour mix is normally sufficient.

Colour Wheel

There are three primary colors: Red, Yellow and Blue. Secondary colors are created by mixing two primary colors together. The main secondary colors are green, orange and violet.

The colour wheel consists of primary and secondary colors and shows colors that have a cool or warm reflection. Colors that enhance each other are close together on the color wheel. Colors that counteract each other sit opposite each other on the color wheel.
