Hey guys, I used the titanium and it turned out alright.
It's very tricky to get an accurate picture of it, since I'm sure it looks different in all light. For the most part, it has a very slate blue-gray color to it. Not really the gunmetal grey I was hoping for, but I think that depending on what color you're starting with, your results will definitely vary. The way my hair was prior to using the titanium probably affected the outcome pretty bad, it was a terrible mess of light golden blondes, silvers, violets and even some pinkish hues.
not the best photo but you get the idea.
there's some weird seafoamy parts around my roots where I last bleached. i suppose that's my fault but i'd certainly advise to use a toner and be sure you don't have any yellowish tints to avoid getting any greeny bits.
the dye itself is super duper thick. i think using it by itself would've taken me three tubes to cover my whole head. i used a tube and a half and mixed with conditioner.
and again - it's pretty blue. it almost looks purple going on, but once you let it oxidize for 30 minutes or so, it gets very slate-ish. maybe leaving it on for a bit less time would give you better results, idk! but i hope this kinda helped! im excited to see how it fades!
I bought Titanium for my sister to use, so I'll you updated on that as well. :)

edit: i just realised you had text at the end of your post and said "I'm excited to see how it fades." HAHA, so yeah, me too. It sounds exciting. =]
So did titanium get lighter with time? How in the world did it react to fading and such? I was considering doing it a few days before I did deep purple, but some of the dark grays people are getting just seem super sketchy and not what I want (right now anyways).
This girl got hers super light, I have no idea how she did that (maybe she got her hair white-blonde?). I was just so curious about it because I do want grey, but its too new and I have a few colours I want ASAP, rather than experimenting with a gray dye. lol.
@abbaforensis haha that's me! I diluted it a lot with white conditioner and applied it to my freshly bleached pale yellow roots. The lavender actually ended up fading to silver and the titanium got lighter with each wash so it went from more of a gray color to silver. So my whole head ended up the same shade of silver when it faded. It's a pretty strong color I ended up having to dye blonde over it cause I couldn't get the silver out. I'd definitely recommend it.
Awesome! I'm definitely gonna' try it out now. I'm soooooo excited, ha-ha.
@abbaforensis post a picture afterwards! :)
Yeah, um. I'm pretty dang disappointed (just switch all the words around like "dang" and "crap" to the appropriate expletives). I've never had any expectations when dyeing my hair so I've never been disappointed (even when my light blues turned out mint green and such). But Titanium was definitely a disappointment.
I applied it evenly and appropriately, and it turned out extremely uneven and only about a third of my hair (mostly the ends) are even gray.
There's five images there. It looks purple-y, but its not in person. The only thing I can really say is, "I know I did not just bleach the crap out of my hair for it to turn brown." -sigh- So I guess I'm gonna' go and get another tube or something because my SFX Deep Purple doesn't come for another week and I'm sure as heck not walking around with hair like this. Sorry if this sounds like a bit of a rant. Its the first time I got to dye my hair again in over a year because of my job switch, and I'm just pretty disappointed. =/
@abbaforensis I'm sorry that stinks! If it helps at all I really don't think it looks that bad. Hopefully another tube will do it for you, try a vitamin c treatment to fade the color, maybe that'll help getting it to the silver that you were hoping for.
Thanks for the advice! I'll post one more picture tomorrow after I redye it but without a rant, ha-ha.
ouuuh! I'm sorry to hear that @abba
I found mine to be pretty uneven, too. It acts more like a toner than it does a color, so you have to ensure that your haircolor prior to using the titanium is totally uniform. Otherwise undesirable results will happen, like you and me):
how long did you leave it on for?
where the color did turn out, looks amazing!!!
