VITALITY COLOUR – FAQ
Colours, like facial features, follow our changing emotions.
Colours are the words of a language we know and we “speak every day” through the body, looks, places, objects.
Visual art, Music, Fashion, Poetry produce colours and sensations which remain in our daily experience to “nourish us” with emotions.
Colour is freedom, joy, amazement, lightness, simplicity: the way to change in a constantly changing world, all the while remaining oneself.
Vitality’s proposes colours, information, readings, sensations and suggestions for those masters performing in the world of colour, never losing sight of simplicity, authenticity, and beauty.
Q. How do I test for allergic reaction?
A. Perform a patch test at least 24 hours prior to application
With a cotton swab, apply to the test area (Inside the elbow) the mixture of colour and developer in
an area of about 1 cm x 1 cm, cover with a bandaid. Leave undisturbed for 24 hours before the
colour treatment. After 24 hours, if there is burning, itching or any other irritation in or around the
test area, do not use the product.
Q. How do I mix my colour: When using a professional hair colour, mix with peroxide/developer:
If lightening up to 2 shades, or keeping the same shade, or darker than your shade:
– Mix 75ml of 20 vol (6%) peroxide/developer per 50ml (half tube) of colour. Once this is mixed, add
one satchet of oil (enclosed in carton)
If lightening up to 3 shades:
– Mix 75ml of 30 vol (9%) peroxide/developer per 50ml (half tube) of colour. Once this is mixed, add
one satchet of oil (enclosed in carton)
If using ultra lightening colours (shades 101, 102, 1000 and 1008):

Q. How do I choose my colour?
A. Choose your colour from the colour selection. Once you have determined your choice of colour,
determine your natural/base colour (which is 1-10 in the naturals)
e.g. if you have chosen 7/44 as your preferred colour and your natural colour is 5 – you are looking
to lighten your hair by 2 levels.
If you have any grey hair:
– use 75ml of 20 vol (6%) developer/peroxide mixed with ¼ tube of base shade 7 and ¼ tube of 7/44
If you don’t have any grey hair:
– use 75ml 20 vol(6%) developer/peroxide mixed with 7/44
I am planning to use a high lift lightening colour (Shade numbers: 101, 102, 1000 and 1008)
A. When using an ultra lightening colour for high lift lightening, it is recommended that you mix with
a 40 Vol (12%) developer/peroxide and use a ratio of 1 part colour to 3 parts developer.
Example: 150ml of 40VOL (12%) Developer/Peroxide to 50ml of Colour
