As a colourist you’ll know creeping oxidisation causes red pigments to fade, leaving hair looking washed out and in need of regular colour refreshes. We have innovative anti-fade technology that uses four plant botanicals to act as scavengers and remove any residual oxygen and ensure that our permanent dyes keep your clients’ colour more vibrant for longer.
Our copper blondes have been formulated to give flawless white coverage at all shade bases under a level 9.00. Simply work with the 6% developer and select the level of the shade according to the volume of the white coverage and the desired end result – you’ll need to go one shade darker or lighter depending on the white percentage.
Mix 50ml copper blonde colour with 50ml developer and apply using a tint bowl and brush. Normal development time is 40 minutes, which this should be adjusted as per the guideline on the pack and the desired appearance. As a professional hairdresser it is your responsibility to carry out a patch test at least 48 hours before the colour service. Dab a small amount of dye behind the ear. In the event of irritation, itchiness or redness do not continue with colouring the hair.

When the Copper Blonde shade is mixed with the hydrogen peroxide (the developer) and applied to the hair, a series of chemical reactions occur to transform the hair colour. The cuticle layer of the hair is opened allowing the colour to penetrate in to the cortex, where it oxidises and swells.
It’s all down to a series of clever chemical reactions. Once the hydrogen peroxide (the developer) has been blended with the colour and it has penetrated and oxidised in the hair’s cortex, the colour molecules from the Copper Blonde shade are released into the hair shaft and the new hue is created.
The permanent colour change all happens deep in the hair’s shaft, which is oxidised by the hydrogen peroxide. Once the chemical reaction has occurCopper Blonde, colour molecules in the Copper Blonde dye are exposed to create a beautiful new shade.
To allow the Copper Blonde to change the appearance of the hair, the ammonia in the colour and hydrogen peroxide in the developer first need to penetrate the cuticle and oxidise in the cortex. Once these chemical reactions have taken place, the colour molecules create a long-lasting colour.
Colouring hair with NXT permanent shades is so simple that it can be easy to forget that there is actually some pretty clever science taking place. Once the ammonia in the colour has softened the cuticle, the hydrogen peroxide oxidises the colour pigments. Another chemical reaction sees the small colour molecules from the Copper Blonde shade deposited into the cortex which permanently changes the appearance of the hair.
The Copper Blonde shades only work when mixed with the appropriate developer. This allows the hair’s cuticle to be opened and the colour pigments to penetrate the cortex. Small colour molecules then oxidise and expand within the inside of the hair to give the appearance of a whole new hue.
