Enlightened to do progressive color (balyage)

Started by Angela Romero. Last reply by Angela Romero on Tuesday. 5 Replies

Was wondering if I can get some feedback from anyone that has tried the balyage technique using enlightener. I recall Lupe, that you once said you were testing it using 0n or something like that. Any information would be appreciated. :)

When using ELC to cover grey, how do you determine how much VB and YO to add? Does TTD play a role in it? IN GENERAL, choosing grammage for ELC always challenges me....I hear some people say to add tone based on the levels you're moving through as…Continue

Deposit Only Color Treatment, deposits...

It can appear darker and less vibrate because of this.  If you want reflection do Lt Pure Base with Lt Pure Tones from Deposit Only Color Treatment for a natural level 5.

I posted on your discussion board  an idea for a formula.

Comment by Lupe Voss on June 21, 2015 at 9:14pm


Use deposit Only Color Treatment 4N 40g + BG 4g + Liquid Activator

This is a fast formula... 10 minutes. You can leave it on longer for more coverage.  It has a graceful grow out.

HI everyone

I have a client 100% grey thick curly hair medium texture she like to be L10, the last time I did her hair, her roots did not cover at all. this is my formula, I'm guessing I needed to add YO to the formula, any idea please

60g 10n + 2g LBB +2g Lnn + 20vcc/ 40 min

Justin, are you sure you're using the dark PB in place of the 5N? I know we've had some of our team forget and do half 5N and half PB like in permanent, or forget the PB all together and just do 5N with pure tone. You could also try replacing the pure tone with just straight red pure pigment. I've also in the past used just pure pigment and liquid activator 1:1 to add tone and shine on a guest who was a level 6 copper. I used pure orange and it worked to add a lot of copper tone and shine.

Kate, Aveda's recommended for a cool brown grey blending on a level 3 is 20G 2N + 2G Dark B/G and 20G DOCT activator. If you wanted less coverage you could try cutting that by 50% with 0N.

Nicole, check this formula out. It's floating around the forums.

I have a problem with Demi reds. Formulating for predictable results. I have a client, natural level 5n, fine straight low density hair, wants a warm result that is not permanent. The last time I did her hair, I forget what I used but I thought it was going to be quite red, and it was not, at all. Ideas?
