Shimmer Lights Permanent Cream Toners are best used after lightening hair to a yellow blonde, or to refresh existing blonde hair. This toner can also be used on natural grey hair to gloss or tone.
This toner must be mixed with developer - the matching Shimmer Lights Developer is recommended. Use 10 Vol Cream Developer for gentle lift, or 20 Vol Cream Developer for standard lift. 20 Vol Developer can slightly lighten natural hair at the roots, which can result in an unwanted warm shade. Use 10 Vol Developer if this is a concern.
Mix your toner with developer in a 1:2 ratio. This means you need twice the amount of developer to toner.
Apply to towel dried hair, focusing on the areas that need the most toning. Process for 15-30 minutes, checking every 5 minutes. Once your desired tone is reached, rinse, shampoo and condition.
Very easy to use and great results. I'm loving the look.
I used this straight after bleaching and liked the result however using it on my hair a few weeks afterwards made it too ashy and I didn't really like the colour . Would only recommend after bleach.
I used this toner with a 10v developer on freshly bleached roots which were quite yellow/ orange. The results were incredible considering it was only a 10 v not 20v developer. The roots blended nicely with my bleached hair ( Just a slight colour variation but definitely not orange or yellow). They looked more of a natural colour . The wella t18 probably does a better job of lifting my roots however I use that with a 20v developer and my scalp burns then peels after. This toner and developer were a lot more gentle but with great results. Have already ordered more and will see how it goes on hair that has been bleached for a couple of weeks. I didnt get as much shine as i would of liked but i will see what happens next time. Would definitely recommend this product
I got this colour so I didn’t have to use purple shampoo as much. This colour is so perfect for fixing those yellow tones in blonde hair! I used the shimmer lights 20vol developer and left it on for 15 mins and got this result!
Great toner for blending those grey roots and brassy ends. I used the 20 vol developer and the results lifted my blonde perfectly.
