A summer filled with long days of intense sun can take a toll on hair color. Color correction, however, can be a lot of work. ALFAPARF Milano Creative Director Abraham Sprinkle notes, “The most requested fix I see are brunettes that have faded to coppery gold. I find the following go-to formulas are the best options for a quick color refresher, while still leaving the positive look of summer lightening in the hair.” The ultimate result? A more blended and richer tone in the mid shaft to the ends.
Abraham’s Quick Fix Formulas for Color Fading:
For Level 7-5: ½ Alfaparf Milano Color Wear 7.14 + 1/2 Color Wear 7 with a 1 to 2 ratio.
For Level 6-4: ½ Alfaparf Milano Color Wear 6.31 + 1/2 Color Wear 7 with a 1 to 2 ratio.
For Level 5-4: ½ Alfaparf Milano Color wear 5.14 + 1/2 Color Wear 5 with a 1 to 2 ratio.
