Try 4.0 and 5.0 ? Or 4.0 and 5.3 and drop down to 10vol

I never found coverage good with majirel x

If you add 5.3 it's not going to make it stronger, it will just go warmer, stick with 5.0 it's the strongest, but try making the mix resistant, for example. 50g 5.0 + 55g 6% this should work well, don't recommend dropping to 10vol, especially cause Loreal don't make one and don't recommend it. Plus if you need lift it won't work

Id stick with 6% with 4.0 + 5.0 equal measures. Why havent you tried supreme. Or try converting to matrix dream age for resistant greys, the colours lift nicely and are very fashionable. xoxo

I rang the educator last week and she said to try adding .3 and it worked x

Hi heavymedicine....welcome to the site, however you have not filled out your profile to show if you are a Hair professional.
If you are not then I am afraid our pros won't answer you as they don't want consumers working with pro products they have not been trained in.
If indeed you are then please update your profile and I am sure one of our Aussie hair geeks will help you soon.

Cheers!

This is a professional site therefore professional products and if you did manage to purchase it you wouldn't know how to use it please have respect for people who have spent countless hours and money on training !

I was L'Oreal trained originally ( now wella) of suggested you go equal parts colour equal parts oxidents. Do L'Oreal still do the intense bases ? They might be worth a go :) good luck
