I'm currently using gold well color and transitioning to aveda. I've been reading that there is a conversion chart. I can't seem to come across one. Does anyone have one? Or any ideas how to make the transition easier?

I would suggest you strand test it.  You mike like it or It could go matte...  I've tried leaving it longer without the foil and found it had grabbed matte on the very porous hair.  

You could do a 0N + Natural + pure tone+ creme activator if you are going to add a soft level and tone.

Let us know what you find!!!

Has anyone tried to lowlight using the Blonde finish toners? I have a client with over processed platinum hair, very heavy density, and medium texture. She needs a slight shift in color and I really think foiling through the beige toner would be beautiful but I'm not sure what will happen if it stays on the hair for 30 minutes. I'm thinking if I use 20 Beige and 20 0N for the length of time it would take for me to put a 3/4 foil in, it would look great. Anyone tried this or something similar using the toners?

Here is the link that shares information on the Hair Color Magic Check It App. It will check your formula before you wreck it! This App coincides with the Segment in Hair Color Magic Essentials 1.
The App has Instructions on how to check a formula when lifting or depositing on the Home page. Enjoy!!!

I am going to post a scenario on the discussion board and let's play with the APP!!!

Pre-coloration formulas you do not need to adjust your formulas for Texture, Type and Density

Comment by Sandy Leung on September 18, 2015 at 10:53am

Hello again, when we do a precoloration in a double proces, does TTD apply to precoloration chart? Like do I need to change the formula on the chart to fine or strong? Thank you!

You will see some shift in her new growth... I'm not sure if that is a bad thing... You could do a new growth formula half 0N + half 7N with the pure tones + 5/10 volume for the new growth to keep it deeper... Add pastel Blue to that formula vs. the lt VB for the level 9/10.  The Pastel Blue will control the NRP at a 7 (orange).

Comment by Kim Hollon on September 10, 2015 at 1:04pm
Thanks Lupe you rock! I am thinking I like a bit of a shadowed base? Will the 0N work for the base if I leave her natural or should I mix a bit of 7 or 8 to weight it down? TIA
Comment by Lupe Voss on September 10, 2015 at 11:29am

Kim, Are you going to lift her new growth or keep it at a 7?

You could totally do Universal 0N + Lt VB + Lt RV + dot of pure V + Half creme and liquid.


0N + Lt VB + drk VR + Half creme and liquid.

VB will control any of the YO that is in the hair so the RV will reflect.
