I just used Revlon's High Dimensions (permanent) in light auburn and I love the color and shine. But I know this beautiful color is going to fade quickly because reds always do. Has anyone ever diluted their hair color
the dyes are actually oxidative dyes and need peroxide or a like ingredient to make them work....they also get activated by the oxygen in the air so left exposed they do their thing and then are no longer useful...mixing with water may get them to stain the hair a bit but it won't last and would be unpredictable.....the color enhancing products use different dyes and are made to last longer......be predictable, etc......you can mix the color with a 10% solution of peroxide and that will make the pigment stronger, be more of a deposit only type of color and will not lighten hair very much if at all......that used to be a common practice in salons but now professional color companies make the same colors in permanent dyes and demi-permanent dyes...the demi's being used for refreshing as they are less damaging.......I hope this helps some
I've used equal amounts of color and developer mixed with just a small amount of mild conditioner. I wet my hair, squeeze out a lot of the water, then apply the mixture like shampoo. I leave it on anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, maybe even longer, depending on what else I'm doing at a time. Then I rinse and apply something like Feria conditioner, or BioSilk Sealer. This works great for me, a LOT better than any store bought color enhancing shampoos or conditioners.
The colors blue from black and fawn from red are considered color-diluted,Color dilution alopecia is a skin condition that affects a large number of color-diluted,the alopecia is permanent, and the goal of treatment is to keep the hair follicles open and control secondary bacterial infections.
