How did you apply the bleach? Routine?
Where did you start as it should be lifted to a more light white and spa toner with make it very ash/silver or I believe wella do a silver semi.

You need to lift it to a very pale yellow first :) I use NXT 11.02, used to have silver hair last year. Also you can use crazy colour sliver to add tone aswel Hth xx

Try wella 10/8. If not silvery enough can add 0/81 special mix.

This is a photo of my friend who I practice on.
He is a natural base 4
I bleached his hair to very pale yellow, then toned using Luo color P01
I left the Luo color on for 20 mins, but you should watch it closely and check every 5 mins.

I didn't leave him like this. I pre-pigged then colored him back to his base 4 afterwards. :biggrin::biggrin:

Definately the key is in the lift. Get it to a nice pale yellow with 20 vol. If it stops lifting (drying out etc'..) wash out & re-apply for 10 mins if necessary. LUO P01 will give it that silvery tone. Watch out though as different hair grabs the tone in different ways. I have one client where I have to rinse the P01 from the back before I've reached the front & yet I have other clients can sit there for 20 mins before I need to do anything. It's all about the visual.

Hi yes that's the kind of colour I'm looking for yeah I'm quite worried as her hair is quite porous so I'm worried about it grabbing the hair il buy bothe colours recommended and if one doesn't work then il try the other lol thanks for the help as always ;-)
