Hi ~

I'm asking for a suggestion for a demi/semi/toner for after Bleach Foils for my mum.

She USED to have Wella KP 6/73 all over, with a TSection of Bleach Foils.

Last year, her hair became resistant, and wouldn't take the colour as good.
(Used to fade super quick, looked almost see-through straight away, and in general not very nice).
So we dropped to a 5/73 with some 55/0 mixed in. This is better.

She is now getting fed up of beinh majority dark, and thinks that being more blonde will be better for when her grey comes through.
(It's very grey on top, and more like random strands in the nape)

last night, I did her usual colour, but the bleach (indola +20vol) took an absaloute age to lift, and didn't lift very nicely, so that's going in the bin.
She's pleased as its blonder than what it was, but I think its a bit yellow:mad:

I'm going to buy some Matrix-VLight bleach.
But am wondering what to tone it with?
I'm kind of going off Wella, so will be looking to use Matrix :)
What can I use in Matrix to tone it with?

Our eventual aim will probably be around a level8.
I want to make it more ashy/beige first(as it's too yellow for me!), and then make it more multitonal later on.

Thanks!

Blue - Thanks for the quick reply! :)
Is that SoColor ? 10vol?20vol ? *New to matrix but looking to change ;) *
That will be enough to just tone away the yellow, yes?
(also, I want to add a bit more to my Salon Services order, to make it worth £5 delivery LOLOL)

Is the 5/6M Mahogany?
I use PaulMitchell a work, so the kind of result I want to get for her is like 7/8NB (neutral Beige) with bleach highlights, so her highlights will blend fine, and wont need doing too often ;)

Would you go for the graphics over V-Light?
It just seems a lot to buy just to use on my mum :lol:

So; My shopping list so far is :
V-Light.
Sync 8P
:green:

I did ul-a 32ml ul-n 5ml with 40vol, graphics blue with promoter 8 and 8p with 10vol, it was capped last time by a god awful stylist! So I alternated the graphics and ultra lift just on roots and did a lot of full. Sections with 8p x

Whats the difference between so color and graphics? Used to use matrix a long time ago but they seem to add new ranges!

Socolor is permanent colour with cera repair oil complex for extra conditions colour and color graphics 2 is a panthenol based conditions 3 step lightning system that lifts, tones and conditions in one easy step!

Sync is seamless colour that's ammonia free tone on tone
