My name is Johnnielynn. I am terrified to get my hair done in a salon. Ok So that's a little dramatic, but I haven't gone into a salon to get my hair done in 15 years? My sister during her senior year of high school decided she wanted to go to cosmetology school. Well she's been doing my hair ever since. For what ever reason getting my hair cut has always been a struggle because they always cut it too short. Plus having my sister do my hair has saved me thousands of dollars over the years.
So. Wella, through influenster gave me an opportunity to try their Color Charm Toner. When I'd first done it I hadn't pre lightened my hair so it didn't really make a difference. Just took out some of the natural brassy tones out probably left over from my halloween hair dye mistake.
I spent the week up hanging out with my sister and her family and before I left we decided to bleach my hair. The problem was that we didn't have a ton of time and she wanted to test out a new technique. I should add, she's no longer a hair stylist. But we ran out of time to tone my hair so I went home with an interesting shade of orange/yellow. It wasn't terrible... but it wasn't good either. But I was looking at a 6 hour car ride home and it was getting late so I went home with the interesting hair color.
Luckily for me I had another tube of the Wella Color Charm Toner and some developer at home. Since I had to be up to Nanny at 4:30 and our routine is the kiddo goes back to sleep cause its early I was able to use the toner to correct the brassy bleached color out.
This toner was the easiest thing, I just mixed one part of the toner to two parts of the developer. I started by sectioning my hair into 4 parts and started brushing it on, then decided I'd be able to get it much more saturated if it used my fingers, which you're not meant to do. Then to ensure even coverage I combed through it with a wide tooth come. the wide tooth will minimize breaking especially since bleaching your hair will dry it out a lot. After combing I went to let it process for 20 minutes. After processing I rinsed my hair and washed and deep conditioned, finished it off with a blow-dry to see the full effect of the coloring and was so happy with it.
I'll be honest I was a bit nervous when I first saw the brassy shade of bleached hair, which was bleached to what I wanted. I was anticipating weeks of purple shampooing to sort the color out but this toner took care of it in 20 minutes, ok 45 with mixing and applying '. But this was the easiest thing in the world. seriously if you're brave enough to bleach your own hair you're going to need a oner, and you should definitely try this one. I'm loving it so much.
