IT’S TIME! Redken Colorgels and Shades EQ color theory breakdown
Todays series: P (pearl)SERIES
P= grey base + blue/violet
Grey base= lighter shade of black which is a blue base
Violet= red +blue
P series is 3 cools to 1 warm
What it’s amazing for- producing iridescent cool blondes
CAUTION: If you have a 9 yellow and you put straight up 9p, you will get green. Blue +yellow = green. To avoid this, add violet (9v) to your formula. This will cancel the yellow and allow for you to have a beautiful result.
Keep in mind the P series is primarily blue based. Blue is a dominant pigment and to avoid this going too dark, add 1oz of clear (clear dilutes the intensity of depth) to your 1oz of pigment +2oz of developer and it will be a level 10.
7p is amazing at cancelling out brassy pigments that live in a level 6/7 . Remember, blue cancels out orange!
For deeper orange pigments that live in a level 5 and under, the NA series is your go to for neutralizing!
