Affinage Bred red with 6%, or loreal majicontrast with 9%, but affinage lasts longer and needs lower levels of peroxide to lift.

I also need some help with a full color primary red! Currently using matrix socolor: 2 parts red lights R, 1 part 6RR, and equal parts 30 vol.
the color looks spot on amazing BUT fades out completely after 3-4 washes.
What can/should I do?
Switch lines?
Need advice please!!!

It shouldnt be fading after so little washes. What condition is the hair like and what products do you use on it? Might be better to use a semi like directions to top the colour up instead of using permanent on permanent which will damage the hair.

I you repeatily do 30vol overthe same sections you are over processing the hair making it weaker to be able to hold colour. But them again red fades super quickly. I tell my client (if they have a dark base all over) to buy a colour ball or crazy colour in red and when they wash their hair use 1/2 conditioner and 1/2 red and it keeps it fresh.

If the hair is an uncoloured base 5, I would only use 6% with the majicontrast as it contains bleaching agents, 9% will be too much for the hair resulting in serious fading.
