Q: Regarding tintbacks: if your guest is a Level-9 Ash Blonde with fine, over-processed hair and loves the color swatch that indicates 5.35, describe the process you would use.
A: "First begin by pre-treating the hair with a protein treatment such as Fortifi," says Eufora Color Program and Product Development Manager Joanne Rempel. "You must fill the hair, because the guest is going more than two levels darker. Mix the fill formula to replace the missing pigment at Level 6, which is one Level lighter than your target shade. In this case, hair is missing gold and orange/red. In Euforacolor, we would mix 6.3 + 6.4 with a pearl-sized amount of 6.6. Process for 10 minutes and rinse; don’t shampoo. Towel dry by 80 percent. Apply the target shade of 5.35 with 10-volume developer from roots to ends. Process 25-35 minutes."
