The concept of this Kadus Professional look is to have lightness at the base, then transition into deeper colors toward the ends.


Natural level 6 with previously lightened (Levels 8/9) ends

1. Pre-lighten hair through a virgin application. First, apply Kadus Professional Blonding powder with 30-volume developer (1:2 ratio) to the midshaft areas. Then apply Kadus Professional Blonding powder with 20-volume developer (1:2 ratio) to the base. Process 35 minutes, then apply Kadus Professional Blonding powder with 6-volume developer (1:4 ratio) to the ends. Process an additional 15 minutes, for a total processing time of 50 minutes. Shampoo and rinse.

2. Tone hair using 30 g Kadus Professional Demi Permanent Color 10PA with 60 g 6-volume developer. Process 15 minutes and rinse.

3. Mix 30 g Kadus Professional Demi Permanent Color 10N + 2 g 5VV with 64 g 6-volume developer and apply to ends. Process 10 minutes, then rinse.
