what range do you use? Some ranges have Blue neutralisers that you can add to colours, to give it a "blue hue"

Use 1 in Majirel, then as the BLEU MixTone. But dont add the MixTone into the Oxydant, eg: 50g 1 + 20g BLEU + 75g 6%, Loreal say not to add Oxydant for Mix's

Awesome! So if I do your formula above it will come out with quite a blue hue?

Thank you :)

The Matrix isnt as blue as using majirel with blue mixer. Ive used both and Majirel is far better for Blue black IMO

ok well im more comfortable with Majirel :)

so if i use 50 majirel 1 with 20 BLEU with 75ml of 6% it should come out with a bright hue?i'm red at the moment and fancy a change but colours arent my strong point lol

hmmmm.....how red are you...? I would suggest actually neutralising the red with green first. Adding blue to red is not going to give you the blue hue desired... xxx

I agree! How red are you? Remember the colour you apply is only half the result! You have to consider your present colour too! ;)

If you were to apply a 1 with green mixer, this would neutralise and give you a flat black, then you can use a blue semi over to give you the blue hue :)

OMG i never thought of that - having a brain fart of a day though. The red is a majirouge 6.66 with majicontrast but its dulled down a bit. which semi would you recommend? like crazy colour?

Whatever you prefer really, a semi is a semi and as long as its blue you'll be fine...nothing like sky blue though, will have to be a blue blue lol

You could even use majimix blue on its own, not as good for condition though, and with a semi you can use it as a conditioner everytime you wash your hair to keep it as bright as possible.

I would fill first, so it doesn't fade out ugly, I'd fill with 1/4 5.25 - 3/4 3 in Richesse or DiaLight, then put it on, it will give you a better result in the long run

ok lol so step-step

1st Fill your hair, (30g 3 + 10g 5.25 + 9Vol In Richesse OR DIAlight) Leave for 20minutes and then rinse and blast hair dry completly.

then apply (50g 1 + 20g BLEU Mix + 75g 6% Oxydant In Majirel Roots straight through) Leave for full dev time of 35minutes, then rinse, dry a part of your hair of then if you want it more Blue then apply the blue semi over the top.

Hope that helped.

That awesome thanks :) although the guys were saying with the red on my hair already it wouldnt take? Will the Richesse counteract that? Thank you for your help :)
