Hmm that still looks quite light...
5/1 would be okay. Having seen how red it is, I'm not sure I'd add the 0/88 reason being (red+blue = violet) it could very well leave you with a plum tone.
0/88 would be ideal if the hair was orange.
I used 4/0kp & 4/07kp with 6% because that’s all I had cos wholesalers are closed.
She loves it now. Xx

@ronray still a bit purple in the sun, I think it needs gold tone adding to cancel it.
what do u think on the level 4 base x

I'm sure there's a 4/3 in koleston, but use 1.9% instead of 6%, you'll get much more saturation of colour :)

Would u apply the 1.9% 1:2 ratio or 1:1 & how long should I leave it on, 40mins ? Xx

I know u mix it 1:1 with base 9 & 10 but I’ve never used Wella pastel developer 1.9% with koleston perfect 4/3.

I'd still do 1:2 and if you feel it needs the full 40 do that, but generally 20 mins would be enough.

Yeah that's what I'd do, it's most similar to colour touch that way. I never mix anything with pastel 1:1 always 1:2 :)

Still on towel dried hair, for a nicer shine. But make sure it's towel dried very well - so not to dilute the tint :)

Thank you, I’ve never used Kp like this before,

Thank you, I’ve never used Kp like this before,
@ronray manufacturers instructions for KP only mention using the method u explained with base 9 & 10.
It doesn’t say with bases 8-1.
What is the result? ☺

If you want to use it 1:1 just do that. I just find it looks very dense if you do that.

@Jungle and @ronray , as there are just two of you involved in this conversation, may I perhaps suggest you take this to Private Messages between you?

@Noodle i don’t mind if other hair stylists want to comment, that’s why it’s not private, it just so happens only one person has..! x

@ronray this way won’t be permanent will it, do I do it this way just for the tone because I want the base too, some of the hair hasn’t covered x

@ronray or anyone else can answer with their comments, appreciate your help x

It's still a permanent tint, but by previously putting koleston on with 6% you list the depth of the colour. Because it created lift when you didn't need it.
If you want extreme coverage and a really dense look do it 1:1.
