Hi everyone!
I am workig with a level 6-7 brassy orange hair after using a color remover and want the result to be a 5N! If I use a 5N hair color with 10 volume developer would the brassiness go away since I am going darker or do I have to use a level 5 with blue undertones??

5n +5.1
Or affinage 5.021 will fill in the more porus brassy areas

If you’ve used a colour reducer, you’d need to use a colour 1-2 depths higher than target otherwise it will end up looking very dark, more like a 3.

Is it an even copper? or is it Patchy? Also I personally find with colour removers the colour turns out a couple of shades darker.

If it’s brassy orange you’ll need a colour that contains some blue undertone to kill the orange
