Hi,my client usually has her hair hilighted with high lift tint ,beach alternated.She is fed up of hlts and wants to go full head blonde but no bleach.She is about a 7 base and has roots now about 3 inches.I called wella and they said use 12/81 & 12/61 = 12% .What do you all think?

Yes, you could do that.

However, 12% plus tint will be a lot more damaging than bleach and 6%. Maybe take this opportunity to educate your client?

If she's naturally a base 7, you could probably get away with bkeach+ 4%and then tone. But if you're against using bleach then 12/81 +12/61 is probaly the beat lift you'll get with 12%:)

If you can't find any, take a look at kadus demi permanent 10/6 it's practically the same.

A tiny blob of a level 10 or a highlift tint won’t have much PPD in it but if you apply it to the whole scalp, that’s potentially more than 1000 times the amount of PPD touching the skin.

Probably best to use foils for now.

I wonder if the issue is actually sensitivity, rather than an allergic reaction. Some clients aren't allergic to colour, but can show signs of sensitivity especially when we use 12% on the skin. Leave it a week and try another patch test with 9% and see what happens.

Hi, just to let you know I did the colour and its amazing. I let it develop for 50 mins then just sprayed it down to emulsify through mid lengths and ends to tone .thank you

Hi, you’ve been so helpful.Ive got another prob for you now.My client has dyed black waist length hair ! Thankfully she is having a really good cut first. So,she doesn’t take her colour through every time,and she wants to be a level 6 eventually.(she’s a 2 now) I’ve done a strand test with1.9% ,left for about 30-40mins and it was quite a bit lighter but very red of course.Maybe if I use a stronger bleach maybe 6% and then apply Colour Touch 6/71.What do you think?

I would definitely try a higher developer, 4% is a good choice if you didn't want to go as high as 6%
I love 6/71 but this woukd still leave the hair quite warm. Consider adding some 0/86 to it, to help neutralise excess warmth :)

Could you please tell me how Kadus toners work? What developer to use and what ratios? Many thanks. There isn't really a lot of info on this brand..
