Hair by Elona Taki
We had a huge, extremely dark regrowth. although the lengths were super white blonde.
Clearly here we need to do the root area first and not even touch the rest to begin with.
This girl's lengths had been lightened so many times that there could have been banding issues unless we did it right. There could also have been breakage issues because the ends were super light.
We mixed Brilliant Blonde Lightener with 30 Vol. We made it fairly pasty, using a little less developer than usual: 1 part lightener to 1.5 parts lightener.
You can also use Brilliant Blondexx Lightener and in fact we would recommend this. Brilliant Blondexx contains Bond Protect and has been specially formulated for effective root, regrowth and near scalp bleaching.
We wanted to deposit a lot of mixture and really saturate and lift this extremely dark regrowth.
We wiped back the bleach mixture during processing to avoid the bleach processing the lightened ends.
After rinsing we saw that the part that was the yellowest was 4 - 6 inches away from the root area.
So when toning, we started applying color on this mid-section area where it was yellow. Then we applied color elsewhere.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WHICH BLEACH DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR DEALING WITH DARKER ROOTS?
Our recommended bleach for dealing with dark roots is Brilliant Blondexx.
It contains Bond Protect so it is gentle.
It is in fact specifically made for near root applications and is ideal for correcting dark regrowths.
At the same time it has lift and will get your dark roots up to the level you need.
Q: WHICH TONER IS THE FASTEST AND HAS THE MOST LIFT?
Our fastest and whitest toners is Intense Pearl Blonde Toner. It is one of the fastest toners in the market.
It was used here to produce this stunningly white blonde effect.
But of course, remember that although it is powerful you shouldn't just apply it to dark roots and expect to lift that.
You still need to pre-lighten the dark roots and equalize, then apply the toner.
