Grey Coverage Plus Reformulated Red
Lucy is a grey client who loves dark to medium reds. As you can see from the before pictures her grey roots were coming in and her red was in need of a reformulation. Lori Esposito, Creative Color Director forused Naturlite, and a custom formulation to transform Lucy into a whole new person!
First Lori started by pre-lightening the previously colored hair by shampooing the with Aquaboost to clean and open the cuticle. Then she followed at the sink by mixing 2 scoops of Naturlite Powder, 2 scoops of 12% Naturlite Cream Activator and 1 scoop of Aqua Boost Shampoo in a bowl (as a “Soapcap”). Next this was emulsified on the hair working mostly with the ends that had been previously colored. NOTE: Pay attention to the amount of lift that you are getting while letting this mixture sit on the hair. In Lucy’s case the processing time was about 20 minutes. To complete the pre-lightening step, Lori rinsed thoroughly then hood dried so that the hair is just damp and ready for color.
For the color Lori mixed 1oz 5CR, 1oz 5FR, 1oz 6RC, 1/4oz 6BC with 6% Liquid Activator and using a bottle application worked the color in from roots to ends. Next she bagged Lucy’s color treated hair and processed under a warm dryer for 35 minutes. FInally she shampooed the color from the hair with Aquaboost Shampoo and then conditioned with Aqua Boost to close down the cuticle returning it to its pH.
Just look at this gorgeous, translucent red. It is healthier and shinier than ever!
