Would you use a few drops darker color in the same range of blonde to get rid of the ash from the sun ?

I use 9g in so color and want to put a few droops of 7g. I have used all different types of coulume and 20 does nothing. So i end up using 30. any advice appreciated.

  • what is 'coulume', and what the crap are you trying to do?
    what is your natural color level? are you lightening it, or darkening?
    trying to go blonder? or just knock off the ash tone?
    btw, the sun does not 'ash' haircolor' probably have chemical damage. if anything, the sun lightens or fades natural/chemical-altered haircolor.
    no matter what you are trying to do, simply adding 'a few drops' of a 2-levels darker shade won't do a thing. also, you may have different needs from root (most likely) to ends. therefore, any change in formula is not going to fix the entire issue. you may need two different formulas to address different issues of sun-damage/fading.

  • Usually the sun helps to lighten mine a bit on it's own - so I don't need to use it as often in the summertime! Woot to that!
