Results of using Arctic Fox Transylvania to achieve silver and bluish gray hair - Remarkable.by AndyaPosted 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Good morning everyone and anyone I missed.
Recently again and several times previously, I have used Arctic Fox Transylvania (black) to achieve silver hair to as dark as a bluish-gray. Arctic Fox Transylvania (black) is a blue based black semi-permanent dye. The hair color before dying should be white hair or the same color as the inside of a banana peel in color. This is the only black semi-permanent dye I know of where with a lot of dilution using conditioner able to create silver hair or bluish-gray hair.
Within a bowl placed enough conditioner to cover my hair very well and then a little more conditioner about 4 ounces. Then added a half of a pinky fingernail sized amount of semi-permanent Arctic Fox Transylvania (black) to the white conditioner. With a tint brush mix very well together the dye and conditioner. The result to get a silver hair is the mixture looks light blue. The result to get a blueish gray hair color the mixture should look about a grayish medium blue. To make the mixture a little darker if too light, then only add a tiny amount of black dye to the mixture. A little Arctic Fox Transylvania (black) can go a long way.
Everyone sees color a little differently and results may vary. So strongly suggest a strand test on a very small section of the hair with the Arctic Fox black dye/conditioner mixture. A strand test is placing a very small amount of the mixture on a very small section of the hair. Then checking the very small section/strand of hair every few minutes and rinsing off the strand if needed every few minutes to observe the progress of the hair color changing. A strand test will tell you how long to leave a product on the hair to get a desired result.
I found it is easier to make a mixture a little darker by adding tiny amounts of a semi-permanent dye than to try and dilute a dark mixture into a lighter mixture by adding a lot of conditioner. Also, I have not had good results using other brands of semi-permanent dye.
These are my suggestions and opinions based on over 35 years of non-professional experience.
