New Kerahold!!!

Starting scenario: Isabel’s hair is about a level 2 naturally. It was previously colored with permanent hairdye at a level 3, with about 2.5 inches of regrowth, so we needed to break the ends up to give more overall dimension and avoid the ever-dreaded hot roots.

First, we balayaged through the ends of the hair with Keratin Complex “It’s a Blonde Thing” Lightener and 20 Volume Devloper.
This not only broke up the previous color, but gave a slight ombre’ effect as well. We slightly teased the ends, and applied the lightener from ends up, never going higher than her temples, because no one likes an ombre’ reminiscent of a bowl cut. After processing for 25 minutes we shampooed out the lightener with Keratin Complex Blondeshell Shampoo, which is great for any hair color where a cool tone is desired, not just blondes.

We then applied Kerahold Color in 4.6 from scalp to 2 inches out. We had mixed for the regrowth with the standard 1:1 ratio with 20 volume Kerahold developer. After applying to the regrowth, we mixed the same 4.6 Color at a 1:1.5 ratio with 20 volume Kerahold developer, and applied to the lengths of the hair, making sure to saturate the hair with color. This ratio achieves an end result of a more translucent and vibrant color. We processed the entire head for the full 35 minutes. After washing and conditioning, we used KC Blondeshell Brightening Oil cocktailed with Vita Volume Foam for the blowdry. Before curling, we misted the hair with Flex Flow hairspray, which is a great working and finishing spray.
