Amanda from the blog Organic Bunny, mixed a Light Chocolate Brown 5.0 with 30 % Dark Coffee Brown – something that you can also do at home!
Why would I be mixing hair color shades, you might ask? First of all you will get a more individual look by mixing hair colours. Mixing the colours will also give you different colour shades in your hair and give your hair a lot more depth than if you stick with one colour only.
When choosing which colours to mix for your at-home colouring there are some important things to keep in mind:
You will get the best result if you pick shades that complement each other, rather than two totally opposite shades. This could for example be Extreme Ash Blonde 11.2 and Extreme Blonde 11.0.
A red shade and a brown shade would highlight each other and produce a rich, deep auburn colour. Black and blonde dyes should be avoided, as they are both very dominant colours that do not mix well
When mixing hair color shades of 2 blonde colours at different levels remember that the higher level colour will lighten while the lower level will add depth – helping to avoid brassiness
When mixing hair color shades you should pour them in a clean bowl and make sure they are mixed thoroughly before applying to the hair. You can either return the mixed colour to the Activator bottle or apply the hair colour directly from the bowl with a tint brush.
