4. For Lightening Colored Hair: BlondorPlex
The techniques above are designed for lightening hair that has never been colored before. But what do you do if your client’s hair still has remnants of a previous toner or lightener? Using a tint will not be sufficient if your client has previously colored their hair. If you want to reduce oxidative color depth and tone, you can try Color Renew, which is a gentle alternative to persulfate products (pre-lighteners). This will reduce oxidative color while respecting the natural hair melanin.
To reduce it further while creating a lift in the hair, we recommend using Blondor on your clients. If your client is wary because they fear damage, there’s an easy workaround. Try BlondorPlex, which is a hair lightener-meets-bond strengthener. We’ve infused it with our WellaPlex No1 Bond Maker, which strengthens the internal hair bonds during the lifting process. You can use it for balayage, highlights, ombre or all-over coloring, and it will give your clients up to 97% less breakage. Just make sure you rinse with WellaPlex No2 once the color has developed.
Then, ensure clients keep up a consistent hair care routine. The ColorMotion+ collection includes everything they need for vibrant color and enhanced condition. If they only try three products, suggest they use the Color Protection Shampoo and the Color Reflection Conditioner, followed by the Structure+ Mask as a weekly treatment.
