#Colorful Hair Purple Pastels: Get the Look

 

Is crazy hair the new norm? Thanks to L’Oréal Professionnel‘s new #Colorful Hair Direct Dyes we certainly think so! 

This innovative range of ultra-chromatic dyes helps you achieve intensely vibrant results or beautiful pastel effects when mixed with the transforming Crystal Clear diluter. The exclusive gel-cream texture allows for easy and precise application while the in-built care trio complex delivers exceptional softness and shine.

Dial it up with vibrant colours that last up to 15 washes (depending on hair’s porosity, type of shade, colour depth and home haircare) or dial it down for pastel tones that last several shampoos. Colour fades gently after the first wash while remaining true to tone.

Top Tips

  • Test a swatch of hair before applying to ensure the perfect colour result.
  • For optimal results, apply colour to a pale yellow undercoat.
  • Ensure an even base for even colour – any sensitised areas may create an uneven result.
  • Check the colour result before rinsing by gently wiping the product off a small section of the hair.
  • When blending colour, remember that there may be an area of intermixed colour. If you want to avoid this, use Easimeche to isolate.
  • Saturate the hair with colour for longevity and an even finish.
  • Provide a professional colour removal service – L’Oréal recommend using Efassor with water to gently remove tones.
  • Personalise your colour results by adapting longevity to suit your clients’ individual desires.
