Rose Gold not for you? Need something cooler-toned? Rose Silver may just be what you need. Our new Rose Silver kit combines Pastel Red with Pastel Silver, and allows you to mix it yourself to create an ombre, or to adjust the ratio as you need to make it more or less silver.
As with any Pastel hue, you’ll want to have platinum blonde strands for Rose Silver. You can see in the before photo that my ends are quite a few levels lighter than my mid-lengths, which have only gone through one bleach. Because of that, the mids picked up less pigment – the less hair is bleached, the less porous it is; and the less porous it is, the less pigment it will absorb. I really liked the ombre effect it gave me though, and the chocolatey-mauve warmth it lent to the Rose Silver!
With that said, here’s how it’s done:
- Mix the Pastel Red and Pastel Silver Deep Treatments in a glass or plastic bowl. We mixed them in a 1:1 ratio.
- Section your hair horizontally so you don’t miss any parts. Here’s what the sectioning looks like – you don’t have to be very exact, but you do want to make sure that your sectioned hair is out of the way so you can reach all the strands that need to be coated:
- Apply all over – I applied it to dry hair because I find my hair absorbs more pigment when it’s dry. You can totally apply to wet hair as well, though! Then, wait 10 minutes, check Instagram, etc…
- Rinse clean. That’s it!
