Golden Blonde Semi-Permanent Hair Colours by NXT

About Golden Blondes

Think beauty, think Golden Blonde. With just enough yellow pigment to create warmth, the NXT Golden Blonde tone-on-tone colours have been created with glamorous, glossy manes in mind. Perfect for adding richness to natural blondes, these reflects are also ideal for toning lightened or bleached hair.

These mildly oxidising semi-permanent hair colours are free from ammonia, parabens and PPDs. They’re formulated with anti-fade technology which means that the colourist can be confident that the salon fresh look they’ve created will last from 18-24 washes.

There are 39 intermixable shades for you to choose from. See our colour chart for details. For perfect results apply to clean towel-dried hair using a tint bowl and brush. Mix one part of the golden blonde shade with two parts of our specialist low peroxide cream developer using a tint bowl and brush and allow to develop. 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.

Before colouring a client’s hair with NXT permanent hair colour for the first time, you should carry out a patch test. We recommend applying a small amount to an inconspicuous area and leaving for a minimum of 48 hours. If redness or irritation occurs the colour service should not be carried out.

How it works

NXT mildly-oxidising semi permanent colours are sometimes referred to as tone-on-tone, demi, and quasi-permanent colours. When the Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde 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 Golden Blonde shade deposited into the hair and bond with the hair’s structure to change the appearance of the locks for 18-24 shampoos.
