How to Color Your Hair with oVertone Deep Treatment

Using just the Vibrant Purple Deep Treatment, our model was able to go from honey blonde to a true amethyst. Watch the video to see how it’s done, or view the steps below. (She applied to dry hair for extra saturation, but you can also follow these steps with wet hair in the shower!)

 

1. Clip the top section of your hair up so you can apply evenly all over without missing those back spots.

2. Apply!

Start at the roots and work your way down the section, grabbing more conditioner as you go.  Wear gloves if you are worried about staining your hands. Once you’ve reached the ends of the section, start on another section, repeat the same process–starting at the roots. Once you’re done with the bottom section, you can release the clip and work on the top of your head. It’s really important to ensure that your strands are totally saturated. Any unsaturated parts of your hair could be uneven, so be sure to rub your conditioner carefully into all your strands.

(If it gets on your skin, don’t worry! You can wipe it off and it’ll be fine (no harsh chemicals here) but if you are worried about staining you can apply vaseline to your hairline beforehand.) Let the conditioner sit for up to 15 minutes.

3. Rinse, and check the results.

If you find any spots that could use another dose of color, don’t be afraid to repeat the process – some people’s hair is less accepting of pigment than others, and those with virgin or healthy hair may like to do a second round.

    Got dark brown hair, some auburn, and want to go to silver grey. Have some grey in front but not much. What’s the best way without bleaching? Had cancer surgery removing upper left lung lobe and can’t breathe bleach. Your reply is appreciated. God bless you always!!

      Hey Linda,

      oVertone works on all kinds of hair, but the darker your starting shade, the less visible color you’re likely to see. To get results similar to most of our Silver inspo pics, you’ll probably need to lighten some or all of your strands.

      We know it’s a bummer when lightening isn’t an option, but no worries – there are other shades you may want to try! Our new Rose Gold for Brown Hair and our Extreme Deep Treatments in warm shades such as Pink, Red, or Orange are the best choices to add an awesome hint of color to light – medium brown hair without bleaching!

      If you have more questions, our Color Consultants at hi@overtone.co have got your back or you can talk to us about color on our live chat on our website http://www.overtone.co.

      oVer to you!

    Hey, thank you for the article! I’m debating going pink, and I have the typical dark blond hair, also naturally hilighted, so when I was looking at the tests I noticed how redtoned and almost warm the colour would turn out on me. Do you think it could be better to mix in also some silver conditioner, pastel or vibrant, to give it some coolness back? Or would it just make it darker?

  • Olivia says:

    Hey! I have dark brown to black hair and I wanted to do a vibrant teal color. Do you think that would show up on my hair or do you recommend another color? I’m open to any suggestions. 🙂

      Hi Olivia!

      Clients with black or very dark brown hair may only show a very subtle tint from our products and in some cases might not have visible results, so if you have dark hair, we definitely recommend trying a sample size and strand testing your hair to see how the color will work for you.

      Cooler toned shades like Green, Teal, or Blue can have a harder time showing up on dark hair, and it’s unlikely that our Vibrant shades will show up if your hair is almost black. Our Rose Gold for Brown Hair and our Extreme Deep Treatments in warm shades such as Pink, Red, or Orange are the best choices to add an awesome hint of color to darker hair without bleaching!

      For the best advice, send an email with a picture of your current hair with lots of natural light and no filters along with an inspo pic over to our Color Consultants at hi@overtone.co or get in touch with them here: https://overtone.co/pages/contact-the-unicorns and they will totally let you know what oVertone can do for you!

  • Julia Little says:

    Hi there. If you leave the treatment on longer then 15 minutes will it have a more vibrant effect?

    • Alee says:

      Hi Julia! Yup! Leaving the Deep Treatment in longer gives your hair more time to soak up the pigment! For the best advice on how to get your dream shade, send an email with a picture of your current hair with lots of natural light and no filters along with an inspo pic over to our Color Consultants at hi@overtone.co or get in touch with them here: https://overtone.co/pages/contact-the-unicorns and they will totally take care of you!
