I often advise my young ladies not to dye their hair, but to tint it. At the same time, this procedure has so many interesting nuances that I wanted to share with you in more detail. Moreover, sometimes I stumble upon such interesting facts on the network, including about toning hair, that the hair begins to move. My, tinted 🙂
The main difference from permanent (permanent) staining is that toning is washed off over time. The durable paint is never washed off. However, I’ll say right away that the shade of some types of toning also remains, this is a side effect that we have to put up with – payment for colourfastness. And, of course, dyes are used differently: permanent for resistant staining and semi-permanent or toning for toning.
In a nutshell, about the essence of the process: hair consists of internal fibres, surrounded by a dense outer sheath-cuticle. Resistant dye pierces the cuticle and penetrates the fibres. Toning – settles on the cuticle or in the cuticle.
The advantages are obvious: you can change the hair colour, while not causing obvious harm. And it is also possible to get a more or less temporary colouration, and then, without washing and blonding, return approximately to its colour.
Cons: washed off quickly, you can make the hair darker, slightly change the shade at its level of lightness. Lighter with tinting paint will not work.
There are different types of toning, and each hairdresser’s school distinguishes its own species-subspecies. I will not dig deep into other people’s research, I will tell you about what I use.
Oxidative toning more resistant. It lasts about 15-25 times shampooing. For its implementation, a semi-permanent paint and an oxidizing agent with a low percentage of peroxide (from 1% to 4%) are used. In addition to colour, bright, noticeable shine and greater smoothness of the hair are obtained.
Oxidative toning is the most popular method to change hair colour. Only it is suitable for blonde hair, regardless of whether you paint your hair dark or maintain shades of blond.
Non-oxidative toning is actually the use of direct-penetrating dyes: these are all kinds of tinted shampoos, balms, tonics, mousses. This is my favourite anthocyanin and other paints that do not mix with the oxidizing agent.
Here the bonuses are even more obvious: for most of the funds, a caring effect is characteristic, you can use at home, a huge choice.
Cons: unpredictable washed away, and generally unpredictable. Many shades are visible only on well-bleached hair.
On the other hand, it is through direct penetration paints that one can maintain the luxurious colour of the house, in between stains. With the help of such dyes, you can get beautiful, bright, crazy, or vice versa, pastel shades on the hair. My only advice here is: coordinate your use with a hairdresser, he will tell you how and what is better to use, and what not to do under any circumstances.
Thanks mastered. I will be glad to answer any questions!
PS: After blonding (lightening) hair (all or partially – highlighting, balayage, satush, etc.) powder, oil, paste toning is necessary! Here we are talking not only about the shade but about the health and integrity of the hair. It is necessary to tint the hair after lightening immediately, on the same day, without “breaks to heal.” Is always. After the shade has disappeared on the bleached hair, toning should be repeated.
PS.S .: violet shampoos are evil, they dry hair very much, look for balsams and masks.
