How Do I Use A Toner?

Do Toner Kits cover Greys?

No. The Toner Kit formula will not cover greys and has zero lightning abilities. It is, however, perfect for that awkward stage when you want to embrace your Greys but you still have two-toned Hair. Toning over your Greys and combing your mixture through your Lightened or Colour Removed ends will help blend the two Colours into a smooth, Cool shade.


Do I apply my Toning mixture on wet or dry Hair?

Dry Hair, which may seem unusual if you're a regular toning shampoo user.


Where do I apply the Toning mixture?

Apply your mix to the brassiest parts of your Hair first, then spread to get a smooth blend using a Wide Tooth Comb. If you have Natural Hair that does not need Toning, avoid covering it in your mixture if you plan to Colour it in the future.


How long should I leave the Toner mixture on my Hair for?

We suggest leaving your Toning mixture on your Hair for 5 - 20 minutes, but the best time depends on your Hair. Very porous Hair will soak up the Cool pigment quickly, whereas Hair with a lot of Warmth may find 20 minutes is not enough. It is important to keep a very close eye on your Hair while it is developing and wash it as you reach your desired Tone. Do not leave on your Hair for longer than 45 minutes.


How do I know when my Toning is done?

It might seem tricky to see once your Hair is covered in product, but you will begin to notice your Hair starting to Tone and Cool. To get the best check, pull a strand of Hair and use the tips of your fingers (of course wearing gloves) squeeze the strand and glide down, wiping the Toner off to reveal your Colour. You are looking for a creamy Cool shade. 

Yes, your Hair will still be damp but you will be able to get an idea of how it looks.
