Choose paint that does not contain ammonia. Manufacturers of high-quality professional dyeing products will help you in this matter. Please note that these dyes have a drawback. The absence of ammonia prevents the color from staying on the hair for a long time. Most likely, after a month you will have to repeat the staining procedure. But on the other hand, the hair will remain healthy, avoiding serious damage.
Pick the color you want. In the international system for the production of hair dye, tone marking is adopted, determined on a ten-point scale. It is these numbers, and not the picture on the box and the colorful name, that should help you when choosing.
The first digit in the number indicates the tone depth of your color from 1 to 10, or rather from black to white. Since the markings may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, only approximate names are given. 1-black, 2-dark blond, 3-dark chestnut, 4-brown, 5-light brown, 6-dark blond, 6-blond, 7-blond blond, 8-light blond, 9-very light blond, 10- intense blond.
Match the tones to the main dye. The second number represents the base shade of the color. A certain scale is used for designation, where 0 is natural shades, 1 is ash, 2 is lilac, 3 is golden, 4 is red, 5 is mahogany, 6 is red, 7 is a cold natural shade, 8 is chocolate. For example, paint with the first number 2 will mean that you have chosen a dark blond color, if the second number is 0, the tone will not have any shades. The third digit represents the complementary hue, which is approximately half the saturation of the final color. It is marked in the same way as the main one.
Compare your color to your chosen palette. Depending on the desired result, you need to choose a developer. A 1.5% solution is needed to treat bleached hair. 3% oxide will help to strengthen the existing color tone on tone. 6% peroxide will lighten hair by 1 tone, 9% by 3, 12% by 4 tones.
Use mixtons if you need to neutralize or, on the contrary, enhance a certain shade. These are additional shades that are not applied by themselves, but act auxiliary. Mixtons are of the following types: red makes the tone warmer and richer, but it is forbidden to mix with an ashy shade. Lilac eliminates yellowness, green removes the red tone, gray enhances blond and makes it calmer.
