When I went to do my trade test the other day the salon had these two brands, why do they have both brands and what's the difference? as I've only ever worked with wella, and are the numbers and tones similar to wella?
L'oreal Inoa is ammonia free, it contains ODS technology, which stands for oil delivery system. Instead of using ammonia to deposit colour in the hair, Inoa uses oil. It's a permanent hair colour, the same as majirel is, but is odourless and has optimum scalp comfort. They also have their own high lift shades now which are fab, these are the UB shades. I loved working with Inoa, it feels very different to any other colour I have used when applying it, make sure you give it a go! x
.8 is a mixture of cool and warm tones. It creates a cool chocolate. I had 6.8 on mine and it was really red but I used 7.8 with 8 on a client wit 70% grey and it came out almost violet. Its a strange one.
