Great Thanks Lupe!!

Laura,

ELC will shift a level with 20 volume

Intense Base will shift tone with 20 volume

You could do half ELC + half Intense Base if that feels better.

I would use  1:2 with 20 volume ...

 Base + Lt VB + 20 Volume

OR

Base + Pastel V + Pastel B + 20 Volume

Level 9-10 soft yo ends, wavy texture medium type thick density wanting to brighten and be less gold. Which do you think would be less damaging Enlightner 5 volume? ELC 20 volume? IB 20 volume? was thinking of perhaps diluting either ELC or IB with 0N ?

Great! Thanks SO much for the suggestion

Shanna,

The darker the color the longer the transition.  Make sure you let her know it will take more than a few visits.

I would enlighten dimensionally on the mids and ends everywhere, and weave whats on her ends on the new growth on top and sides.

Tone all the hair with the Blonde Finish

Ash 20g

1N 1g

Beige 20g

Then her next appointment do more of the Enlightener  pieces on the ends and weave what is on her ends on the new growth on top and sides.

Tone all the hair with the Blonde Finish

Ash 20g

1N 1g

Beige 20g

It should take three or four times and then keep doing the blonde finish toner to control ends. 

I tried to do it one go and it was very bad...too warm and not even.

I have a client coming in wanting to go all over natural grey, currently a warm level 5 (assuming natural is 100% grey, assuming only because I've never done her hair before) curly, medium density hair. I was thinking we should do a color cleanse and gradually lighten throughout a period of time. I don't believe she's porous or any concerns with texture being that her hair is a max 4 inches all over, and has been for quite some time. I was just looking for other opinions/options or suggestions. Thank you!

Ok, so this video blew my mind a little bit….

Obviously, this isn't exactly how light reflects from the hair. But the fact that the magenta wavelength doesn't really exist is kind of crazy.

Bettina,

Did you ask her about Alopecia Areata?

Comment by Bettina Mendez Delfin on July 7, 2015 at 11:22am
My client has a bold spot!! I have a client that I've been coloring her hair every 6 weeks. Using the same formula Deep 30g. 3N 4g. NN 2g. BGR 20 vol. Her natural level is 2, 50% grey medium/coarse Asian hair. Never had problem till now that she has a small bold spot from color she said. She said its happen before at other salons and different brand of color. It never burned or itch. But don't know what caused this? Should I still color her hair or change my formula?
