Well my friend has virgin black hair she dyed it caramel using wella 9/1 and 8/1 and 40 vol I loved the color :)
I want to do the same to my mom, my mom has 75% grey hair and she dyes it black 302/0.
She wants to dye her hair caramel and she does not want to bleach her hair since its damaged enough.
Would it work if i use wella 9/1 and 8/1 and 40 vol on her black died hair ???
How can i dye my mom,s hair caramel ???
Thanks in advance :)
I'm with you 100% color does not lift color! lol the slow process is a lot better! much better on the hair and better color results

WOW! talk about damaging. even a 10 with 40v wont work, but 40v peroxide with even a color will blow the hair up! (a level 10 color has LOTS of ammonia also) you are much better to go bleach and 20 vol than ANYTHING with 40 (which, AGAIN, will NOT work anyway.) Low and Slow baby, Low and Slow. lol. good luck :)
You cannot lift colour w colour...period. I use Scruples Blazing Lights, it will get you any colour you want over any type of processed hair. 20 min under dryer & you have your desired shade. Of course you have to buy the system, but worth the purchase.
First let me tell you that the reason your friend's hair came out a beautiful caramel is because she had natural color.No matter what company or product line tells you that you can lift color with color, it is a lie. You might get lucky and it just might pull to the right levels, but Highly unlikely, and definately not going to happen again. You're also working with grey hair at roots 75%, so your formula that you might wish to achieve will work on the grey natural if you formulate it correctly. as for those black ends, you will have to remove that color , either with a Oxidation color remover which is tricky or a mild bleach wash. Yoiu will have to use low volume bleach and bring it to a level which will still have gold remaining to accept the color. then use a demi permanent color on those ends and a different formula at roots. Good Luck!
I would do a mild decolorizing wash (will depend on the texure of hair, finer hair-gentle formulation)
then go over with a NON permanant color. like shades EQ or matrix colorsync
If you use permanant color on already porous hair it will make it even more porous and wash right out
I have to agree, you cant lift color with color effectivley. All it will do is create a moderate lift because of the developer and it will rearrange the dye molecules in the hair creating an uneven and unpredictable color results . Store brand colors are even more unpredictable . Despite the reasons for not wanting to use bleach ...it is the only way to get even lift before toning . There are no short cuts when dealing with previously color treated hair . I would suggest a heavy hilite and tone and make it a gradual process . Again no fast way to fix store brand boxed black haircolor .
Colour does no lift artifical colour. Unless you bleach your mom's hair she will not see any change.
