These professional hair dyes add warmth to the copper and coolness to the gold. They’re a stunning multi-tonal contrast and due to the innovative formulation you’ll have the confidence that the beauty of the shade will last.
As a hairdresser, you’ll have experienced that the higher pigment in red and copper fashion shades can cause the appearance of fading. That’s where our anti-fade technology comes into its own. Formulated with four plant-based botanicals that prevent creeping oxidisation you’ll experience copper locks that retain their beautiful vibrancy and depth for longer.
Our golden copper blonde reflects have been developed to give flawless white coverage at all shade bases under a level 9.00. Simply mix 50ml of the right level of golden copper blonde with 50ml of 6% developer and apply to clean, dry hair using a tint bowl and brush. Normal development time is 40 minutes. It is the hair colourist’s 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 Golden Copper Browns 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 Golden Copper Browns 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 occurGolden Copper Browns, colour molecules in the Golden Copper Browns dye are exposed to create a beautiful new shade.
To allow the Golden Copper Browns 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 Golden Copper Browns shade deposited into the cortex which permanently changes the appearance of the hair.
The Golden Copper Browns 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.
