I will use this again. I am naturally about a level 7 light ash brown hair with true gold tones. After years of blond highlights it goes brassy easily. I've been using Ion 9NA or 8NA or 8A with #10 developer on my roots to blend and it gives me a little lift, so as it grows out I have a halo of washed out blond over brown. My roots were grown out with 20% grey. I wanted to blend and cover grey and get rid of the very washed out Orange brass tones in several shades all over my head. I mixed 1 bottle of Wella T35 toner with 2 parts #10 and let it kick for 5 minutes in the bowl then applied first on the roots and temples for 10 minutes, then covered the rest of my hair for another 20. Rinsed it out thoroughly in sink, then shampood and conditioned both color safe. The result is it took me back to a very natural #7, covered my grey roots really well, and toned the blonder streaks and ends to a lovely natural dark golden blond. Washed again the next morning as a little smell was still there and it took it away and made the color even better. Not sure how long this will last but I'll have no problem using it again in 3 or 4 weeks. Left hair soft too. I'm very happy with it. I've tried the Wella T18 before but it was too light and didn't really cover and blend enough for me. 1 bottle did my shoulder length hair. Go for it!
I tried this, although probably chose a color that was too dark. It turned out much darker than I anticipated. I had recently used the L'Oreal Coleur Experte, Toasted Coconut, color and highlight kit. I liked the highlights, and not having a solid color, although it pulled a little more red or gold tones than I anticipated. Naturally I'm an ash or beige blonde. I wanted something to tone down the brassiness, and didn't think it would cover up my highlights. My highlights are somewhat still there, just not as noticeable. I'm missing my blonde, because to me it looks brown. It will probably lighten up with further washing, generally hair color does. It did tone down some of the brassiness, and I only left it in for 10 to 15 minutes max., which is why I give it a 4 rating. The directions aren't really clear, it states to leave it on for up to 30 minutes. I'll leave it for now, because I don't want to put anything else on top of what is already there, and wait until it's time to recolor again. I've read some comments where people put it on their roots for 5 minutes and pull it through the rest of their hair for only 2-3 minutes. I suppose it depends on how quickly your hair absorbs color. Live and learn.
I use this after highlighting my hair or touching up highlights, since it has a brassy tendency. This product is very good for cooling it down and creating neutral, wheat like tones. Actually, what I use is T27 Royal Beige which is very similar. Around here it costs around $2 which is a great deal.
I'm fairly low-maintence with my hair. I've been dying it every few months with Naturcolor (mixing levels 9N and 7N to get something between 8N and 9N). My natural color is probably level 7 and when I lighten it, it turns gold or even red-gold. I had almost forgotten that toner exists and had never really used it. And so I spent about a day and a half reading up on toners and how to use them.I got a bottle of the toner and the Wella activating lotion (10 Volume developer, although it is not advertised as such). I mixed 1 part toner to 2 parts developer. I worked quickly and left it in for approimately 8-10 minutes. The smell was incredibly strong and I was kind of afraid that I would choke on the fumes. It also left a mess (my fault, I suppose).I'm pretty pleased with the results. This is a Violet-Gold toner which reduces brassiness/yellowness without turning my color completely cool. The results were effective but subtle. I am posting some photos to give you an idea of how it changed my hair color. Photos were taken on the same day and I tried to get the same lighting. I would probably purchase this again, but may try other toners next time. I suspect this one works best for dark/medium blonde hair. Lighter blondes may want to use one of the other toners.
This stuff is *amazing*. I purchased it at Ulta, and it wasn't even that expensive. It comes as a spray but it sprays it out like a cream so your best bet is to spray it in your hands and then apply it to your hair. Whenever i use this my hair gets ridiculously shiny! I stopped using it for a while as I discovered some other new hair products so I put this back in my closet.Fast forward a year, I'm in Germany for vacation and since we have hard water here, I can't use any of my american hair products because the hard water dries your hair out like crazy. So I went and picked this up and the mask locally here in Griesheim. Fun fact, the city it's made in is right next to this one and only about 4km away :D *nerd alert*. I could tell how dry and gross my hair felt, especially when I got it cut yesterday and the girl shampoo'd it but didn't even put conditioner in it! I used the mask and the leave in and holy crap, my hair is so soft again! It feels normal again! So shiny and everything =) I'm going out to buy the matching shampoo and conditioner tomorrow as well =) Wella products are fantastic and not even that expensive, I recommend giving them a try.
