Tri-Banded Brassy Bleach & Tone to Flawless Platinum
Color corrections come in many shades and levels of complexity. For starters, the hair typically has been compromised, whether by being pushed too far, cared for incorrectly, or the service just wasn’t up to par. Whatever the origin may be, we are here for any and every kind of OLAPLEX transformation, which is exactly what Los Angeles colorist, Sara Lim @slim_color gave us with this compromised, tri-banded bleach and tone correction.
First things first, the consultation. Slim determined the client has about a 3 1/2” grow out. Before discussing any results, Slim told the client she couldn’t move forward with the correction unless the client planned to touch up her re-growth no more than 7 weeks apart. Any longer, gives a corrective line of demarcation as seen on the client.
We hope this transformation inspires you whether you’re in or behind the chair!
Here’s the process:
First things first, Leslie came in for a consultation knowing her situation was a color correction. Before any color work, she came in for an OLAPLEX Stand Alone Treatment. Once the treatment was applied, Slim braided her clients hair and sent her home with the Stand Alone on so she could keep it on longer and wash out once the product dried out. This period to rebuild essential bonds before her highlight appointment was crucial to the success of what was to come.
Regrowth: Redken Flashlift 30 vol + OLAPLEX No.1
Mid shaft through ends: Redken Flashlift 10 vol + OLAPLEX No.1
After rinsing Slim applied OLAPLEX No.2 as the rest of her highlights continued to process.
Shampoo using Fanola No Yellow for 5 minutes, then condition with OLAPLEX No.5.
Later, Slim towel dried and applied the diluted OLAPLEX No.1 with water and left on while she applied the root shadow.
Root: Redken Shades EQ 5NA
Slim applied OLAPLEX No.2 on the client’s ends so she could comb through her hair without the root toner coloring her ends. Pro tip!
Process for 15 minutes, then comb down the last 5 minutes.
All over gloss Redken 9nb + clear for 7 minutes.
Shampooand condition with OLAPLEX No.4 and No.5.
