Makeover: Lifted Root and Natural Ash Effect

by Anne Moratto | August 20, 2016

She calls this a “magical makeover” and we agree.  “This couldn't have had a better outcome!” says Bree Little (@breanna_anythingbutbasic)

PROCESS

STEP ONE: Started with a bleach soap cap of BlondorLightener and 30 vol mixed with shampoo. Process took roughly 6 minutes, bringing a pale ash blonde.

STEP TWO: I lifted the roots with same lightener mixture minus shampoo and added Olaplex. Processed for about 35-40 min lifting to level 10.

STEP THREE: On damp hair I applied a mixture of 1oz 8n, 1/2oz 6nb,1/4 oz 6t Redken Shades Eqon roots, staggering out.

“Processed for 25 min and Bam! There we are.”

Little posted this on Instagram and was asked: 

  • davidsean79nice color combo in your formula - let me ask why the t. I see it came out beautifully gorgeous.. just seeing your thought process on adding some t

To which she replied:

  • @davidsean79"t" is on the grey side and when playing around I found it adds a bit more of a natural ash effect. To me when added over a lifted root or lifted in general it helps keep a natural look versus a "color" if that makes sense? I use T a lot with ombre transition as well.
