So I dared my hair to go grey today.. unlike colors I have previously attempted, this one by far was more tedious. So first things first. My hair is obviously color treated with over the counter dark brown. So in order to not damage my hair I first saturated my hair in coconut oil. Trust me it helps combat the sheer abuse the bleach can do to your hair.
So after I applied the oil I used Wella bleach that I purchased from Sally’s and used 40v developer also Wella. Applied by brush from root to end I let set for approximately 45 min (can be left on for 50) I rinsed the bleach from hair and applied Clairol Purple shampoo, also found at Sally’s, lathered really good and let set on hair for 30 minutes. This will even out any yellow tones in hair and let you know if another bleaching is necessary. Rinsed shampoo, towel dried hair and was now ready for the toner.
Now I used Wella T18 which is an ash blonde color and 3 cap fulls of Wella 050 which is a toner. (The toner is what gives you the desired grey color) I let this set on my hair for 30 minutes. I rinsed and did not shampoo.Well pleased with my result. I spent $20.00 and came out with this awesome color. Use the Purple Shampoo every other wash to keep desired color and to tone out any yellow or brassy color that may appear! And yes this was done in my retired hairdresser momma’s kitchen 💋
