Using Aloxxi Tones

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Haircolor

Hello everyone,

I have begun to hear conversations and acceptance between stylists that the Aloxxi Demi-Permanent “Tones” will create lift if applied over naturally pigmented hair.

As we know, the “Tones” is a no-lift, no ammonia demi permanent hair color that can be used immediately following a Perm Wave or Relaxer due to its gentle nature.

I talked with the Aloxxi and was assured that there is no way that the “Tones” can cause lift if used as per manufacture instructions.

Those manufacturer’s Instructions are as follows:

  • To only be mixed with 7 Volume Developer
  • Normal mixing format is 1 part Tones + 2 parts 7 Volume Developer
  • For intense tonal infusion and additional gray blending it can be mixed 1 to 1, (however, if this is used with the Reds, the intensity of Reds could be browned out and lessened)

Aloxxi did however state that it the Tones is either purposely or mistakenly mixed with 10 Volume Developer or higher, and left on for excessively long period of time or put under a dryer, it could possibly force some slight lift.

In order to be completely sure of these statements we performed double blind test strands on Natural Virgin Hair.

In the first picture you will see three test strands using the 7 Volume developer.:

  • the original natural strand
  • a strand with Clear and 7 Volume Applied
  • a strand with 10V and 7 Volume Applied

You can see these strand sh ow no signs of lift what-so-ever.

In the second picture you will see two test strands:

  • 10 Volume w/No Heat
  • 10 Volume w/Heat

The strand with 10 volume and no heat shows no sign of lift.

The 10 Volume w/heat does show a very slight level of lift.

I hope this helps clarify that we will achieve no lift when using the “Tones” following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Any questions, please let me know,

John
