Hey, I no theres a few threads about goldwell elumen but i can't find some of the advice i need. My friend wants to go a very bright purple, but quite dark at the roots, and more on the violet side rather than a red purple. So i'm thinking to do 4.20 in majirel at the roots cause she like it dark at the roots, then pre lighten the ends annd i have bought some goldwell elumen vv to put over. I've never used this before so i have bought the prep and lock as well (hope thats right) but i wanted to know how light i need to prelighten it to in order to get the best results? Is it best to get it yellow then tone it with a 9.02 to cancel out the yellow then put the elumen over? Also how long do they last? I know its permenang but realisticly does it last well for a few weeks or start to go wishy washy after a couple of washes because its over lightenend hair? Sorry to bombard with questions! I'm putting a pic up of what we like! We like the bottom pic for the dip dye effect and maybe more violety like the top one, any advise please sat!!
Lift as light as you can, the lighter the lift the more vibrant the result , no need to tone, make sure the elumen is applied to dry hair, when the Lock is applied it makes the elumen permanent & keeps the vibrancy x x
I don't really use the prepare unless hair is very porous, if you use it just coat the hair with it doesn't need to be saturated then towel dry it in or give it a quick blast with hair dryer then apply the elumen over it, yes vv@all is the main colour I did pk@all , bl@all & tq@all slices then applied vv@all over the rest xx
