Is it is warm or is it cool? Golden or violet? It’s the multi-dimensional nature of the NXT Golden Mahogany Brown shades that make them such a popular choice with colourists and freelance hairdressers. The warmer pigment of the gold softens the violet undertones, but there’s an unexpected depth and richness that makes these truly beautiful shades.
Like all our trade-only hair dyes, the golden mahogany browns are deeply nourishing and conditioning on the hair. While some violet shades can quickly lose their pigment, resulting in a washed out appearance, the anti-fade technology in NXT permanent hair colours makes them last. The innovative formulations act by stopping the oxidisation of violet and red pigments so they remain richer and brighter for longer. They have also been created for flawless white coverage making them the perfect range for in-salon colourists and freelance hairdressers looking to maximise the opportunity from clients whose regrowth needs regular attention.
Golden mahogany brown shades should be applied to clean, dry hair at a ratio of 50ml dye to 50ml developer using a tint bowl and brush. Normal development time is 40 minutes. As a professional technician 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.
From the quality coverage to the long-lasting anti-fade results even on mahogany tones, there’s so much to appreciate about NXT permanent hair colours; what you’ll get really excited about is the dramatic savings your hairdressing business can make when you switch from your well-known colour brand. You’ll get two applications from each of our 100ml tubes at a lower price than many companies retail 50ml for. It’s a trade-only range of products that is retailed wholesale by hair and beauty distributors and we offer a variety of multi-buy promotions.

When the Golden Mahogany Brown 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 Mahogany Brown 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 Mahogany Brown, colour molecules in the Golden Mahogany Brown dye are exposed to create a beautiful new shade.
To allow the Golden Mahogany Brown 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 Mahogany Brown shade deposited into the cortex which permanently changes the appearance of the hair.
The Golden Mahogany Brown 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.
