Rich and luxurious, gorgeous and glamorous, our NXT Chocolate Blondes Semi-Permanent Hair Colours give a short-term burst of the colour intensity that your clients’ crave. Add depth, drama and a gorgeous gloss to any blonde mane with these rich chocolatey shades.
Whether you want to add richness and depth to a natural blonde or refresh the mid-lengths and ends of previously treated hair, these ammonia-free mildly oxidising semis have been formulated to last between 18-24 shampoos.
For perfect results, apply to clean towel-dried hair and mix one part of the chocolate reflect with two parts of our specialist low peroxide cream developer using a tint bowl and brush. This should be adjusted to 1:1.5 for white coverage. For normal hair colouring, development time is 20 minutes, but this should be adjusted if you are using heat, if hair has just been through another chemical process or if using to colour refresh and tone.
As hair colour is a chemical process allergies and irritation can occur. To minimise the risk carry out a skin or patch test 48 hours before application by applying a small amount of the dye behind the ear or to the inner arm. You should not continue with the service if itching or redness occurs.
NXT mildly-oxidising semi permanent colours are sometimes referred to as tone-on-tone, demi, and quasi-permanent colours. When the Chocolate Blondes shade is mixed with the releaser and applied to the hair, a series of clever chemical reactions occur to deploy the hair colour. Small and medium colour molecules in the dye penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex to oxidise it and inject new pigments. These are washed out of the hair in 18-24 shampoos.
When the mixture of Chocolate Blondes and the specialist NXT releaser is applied to the hair, it penetrates the cuticle and in part the cortex, which is oxidised by the hydrogen peroxide found in the releaser. The chosen shade then deposits small and medium colour molecules to change the appearance of the hair. As the colour is ammonia free and developer very low in strength, much of the new pigment is closer to the surface. Therefore, these semi-permanent colours have a stunning high shine.
It’s all down to a series of clever chemical reactions. Once the colour pigments, when mixed with the releaser, have penetrated and oxidised within the hair’s cuticle (and to a lesser extent the cortex) the colour molecules from the Chocolate Blondes shade are released into the hair shaft and the new hue is created. These colours are light-reflecting and deliver high shine as most of the colour pigment is deposited closer to the surface.
The semi-permanent colour change occurs in the cuticle and in part the cortex, which is penetrated and mildly oxidised by hydrogen peroxide in the releaser. Small and medium colour molecules in the Chocolate Blondes dye release the new pigments to create a beautiful new hue. As most of the change occurs close to the surface these quasi permanent colours deliver a high shine.
To allow the Chocolate Blondes to change the appearance of the hair, the colour, mixed with the developer first needs to penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex and oxidise it. Once these chemical reactions have taken place, the small and medium colour molecules and pigments are deposited in the hair structure for colour that lasts for up to 24 shampoos.
NXT Mildly-Oxidising Semi Permanent Chocolate Blondes shades allow you to transform the appearance of your client’s hair through several chemical reactions. The hydrogen peroxide in the releaser allows small and medium colour molecules to penetrate the cuticle and in part the cortex and oxidise it. As much of the pigment in the new colour is close to the surface you’ll be wowed by the high shine – especially on virgin hair.
Colouring hair with NXT mildly-oxidising semi-permanent shades is so simple that it can be easy to forget that there is actually some pretty clever science taking place. The hydrogen peroxide in the releaser, along with the colour pigments penetrates the cuticle and in part the cortex and mildly oxidises it.. Another chemical reaction sees the small and medium colour molecules from the Chocolate Blondes shade deposited into the hair and bond with the hair’s structure to change the appearance of the locks for 18-24 shampoos.
