What are you using the quasi for? You can mix a Wella Koleston down into a Color Touch but I need to know the reason why you want to do it because that will affect my answer?

If i wanted a product for this, quasi would be the best choice. Obviously you cant do that so i would use a Koleston rinse - these are generaly used to freshen up washed out tone and are sometimes called an anti fade colour bath. (30ml tint + 30 ml 6% + 60ml of [B]very warm[B] water.

No problem. Just make sure you use warm water or your product will be lumpy. I prefer applying these out of a Color Touch flask as well as they are rather runny.

I disagree, you cant make koleston into colour touch as the colour molecules in a permanent tint are completely different to those of a semi!

Telephone Wella helpline and they'll tell you what Koleston rinse is. It's not something I made up, it's a tried and tested recipe from Wella.

You don't care what Wella say about their own product. Very strange. I think you'll find I never said it turned the colour into a quasi, I offered an alternative solution to the stylist not having a quasi product and wanting an alternative solution. From what I gather, the product that Wella recommend worked fine so alls well that ends well.

Permanent is permanent, semi is semi and quasi is quasi.....water is water! Not god out of a tap....so no please use proper colours for their intended use before you void your insurance!


And people wonder why the "new hairdressers of today" can't colour or cut!!

Maybe look at what they are taught at college!

Blue rinse you genuinely are the most horrendous person I've come across on here. For some reason you feel the need to force your opinions on peoria and you truly are a disgrace to our profession. Most of the people on here are young and lacking confidence and experience and you just mock and make them feel small. I won't be on salon geek again as I do not want to associate with "professionals" like you. Disgraceful
