Box Dye Correction: Sterling Silver

Have you ever had a new client travel more than 75 miles just so you could transform her box dye brunette into a silver shade that better matched her natural haircolor? BTC Team Member Jack Martin (@jackmartincolorist) recently did and all it took was three formulas, nine hours and LOTS of planning and patience.

 

Setting a plan before performing any hair transformation is the key to successful results and that can be done during a prior consultation,” advises Jack. “My client was extremely happy because she told me she would be happy with anything lighter than what she is currently, but thanks to my knowledge, planning and the great products I used I was able to achieve her desired color in one session.

    Start by removing the artificial dye by doing two rounds of Malibu C CPR. Then, place her under a hot dryer until she reaches a copper blonde Level 8. “It really shocked me how much it helped in removing almost 80 percent of the artificial dark color,” shares Jack. “That was a very smart start because it saved the hair a tremendous amount of stress and damage.”
