Yes i was taught that too in college, but you have to work by manufactures instructions to get best result.

If you've bleached the hair, there's nothing that's going to cause a barrier, that cuticle isn't shut, Demi permanents work mainly on the cuticle layer anyway. Think about it, we apply colour to condition hair everyday when a client walks in, this is no different.

Conditioners close the cuticle so prevent further damage and evens out porosity xx

Do you keep it on a few minutes and then rinse out?

I always spray on extreme CAT before toning. It evens out the porosity of the hair

Nope. I was told by L'Oréal and Redken that it is safe to leave in before toning.

I use Antioxy conditioner before toning sometimes it's completely fine it evens out the porosity so nice even results on bleached hair! X

Towel dry and apply fudge one shot spray to porous areas to prevent it grabing too soon. Also I often apply a stronger ratio to resistant areas and a more dilute ratio to porous. Fudge toners allow for the peroxide to

Pre bleach ombré and then tone with fudge pastel paint box. Use whiter shade of pale and add your desired amount of pink moon and blueberry hill if your inclined to. Little goes along way with the bright shades x

I don't want to start a new thread and I don't mean to interrupt this one! S'cuse me :)

Tips for keeping toner from fading too much between salon visits? Obviously I can't tell my clients how often they should or shouldn't wash their hair. I have noticed if they like to do a deep mask weekly it can fade faster.
