I have to be sincere with you guys when I first thought about moving to New York I thought I would take care of my hair by myself so the easy thing to go for was dark brown.
But that wouldn’t last forever because I met Sonila from Sonila Beauty Box which will retouch my hair color and my haircut the right way.
Without any hesitation she agreed to explain procedure and products she used to highlight my hair without damage so here it is.
What is the process like?
The process start with applying base hair (roots touch up) with Fusion Color from Redken.3 N Dark Brown omonia free.We let the color sit for 20min before we start balayage technique.For natural,sun-kissed highlights effect balayage is the perfect method .The final product is beautiful, natural, and hair with absolutely zero line!For balayage I used Flash Lift powder from Redken with 20 volume.We start painting on the surface of the hair strand and not saturated through the section until the very tips.No foils needed for this process.During this technical service We always use pH-Bonder.Nr 1 treatment because protect bonds and reduce breakage.As soon as we reach the desired color, we rinse the hair really well and apply pH-Bonder nr2 and we leave it for 10 min.To add shine back to the hair and to complete the tone of the hair color we use Redken shades ￼EQ toner Gloss.We work the gloss for few min on the sink and then rinse and wash the hair with Redken color safe shampoo and conditioner.Typically balayage requires far less maintenance than traditional colors because it grows out beautifully and there are no strong regrowth lines.
So here it is the final result. What do you think?
