Any one?
I'm about to colour my hair
iv bleach bathed it today and has lifted to a 7.3 (normally base 5)
I still want it warm but not as dark as the 5.3
I only have half a 7.3 and half a 5.3 here so thinking of mixing the 2
But I need some advise first?
I'm going lighter on the ends tomorrow (ombre effect) so help pleaseeeee! Lol :) x

Yes, I got taught that you could mix in theory 2 colours to get another ie, 5+9=14 divide by 2 = 7. I have on occasion used this but having the correct colour is defenately better and more stable, but it is handy to know and this was taught on a Loreal colour keys course about 15 yrs ago

I was taught equal parts means the darker colour takes over so normally 3/4 7.3 1/4 5.3

Blue rinse is correct, it's not half and half, it's a half the lighter colour plus a quarter of the darker one.

Correct, the darker base is dominant so 3/4 lighter base + 1/4 darker 3%, but i'd use a semi! x
