Hey all! So this week while I was going through a few of our remaining moving boxes that are scattered around the house, when I found a few tubes of color that I had left over from doing my sister’s hair. I was going to return them, but I thought I’d do a little hair makeover instead.
I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out on me, doing a cool color with my warm roots, but It turned out looking pretty good. Maybe I’ll go lavender next!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Color bowl and brush
- 2 Ion Color Brilliance semi-permanent hair color in Titanium
Before starting this, your hair needs to be pre-lightened or the color won’t take. Check out what I use to Lighten my hair here.
First, don’t forget to put on that old t-shirt and move the bathroom rug to not ruin anything! I had done this color previously on my sister so I knew I wanted a lighter grey tone, as a result I mixed 1 part color to 1 part conditioner, or 2 oz conditioner to 1 tube of color. If you want a darker grey then skip this, but you may need more tubes of color. This is a semi-permanent color which means it is only supposed to last a few months, but from experience, it may last longer. It is also ammonia free so it doesn’t require any developer.
Put on your gloves and part your hair leaving out the bottom section, pull everything forward and start applying.
Using 1-2 inch sections apply the color on all the pre-lightened areas. Remember to really saturate the hair with product. This product has a blue base and your pre-lightened hair is more pale yellow, if you don’t saturate well enough then your resulting hair will have a greenish look. We don’t want that so make sure you saturate!
Continue working in sections all the way up the head. When you’ve finished applying, let your hair process for 40 min.
Next wash out your hair and style as desired. Remember to always use a leave in conditioner on your hair especially if you’ve just lightened it, I like to use Redken’s Unique one.
Hip-hip-hooray! Now we have fabulous titanium hair! [themify_icon icon=”fa-heart-o” link=”http://”] Cassie Jean

?? geez. I totally need a hair makeover. It’s in permanent mom bun status all the time right now. I’m hesitant to try top much that requires a lot of maintenance, but I really should just go for it!

I totally agree! Go for it!
I’ve been wanting that color for a while. I’m a young at heart 60 year old whose hair is turning a beautiful silver white (roots) like my grandfathers. I think this would be a great transition to going natural. Sister warn me my hair will be green but you say if it’s saturated I should be ok? Thanks for any feedback

if your roots are a different color than the rest of your hair, the titanium will take differently to the roots than it will the rest of your hair. You may need to add a filler color to your roots or lighten the rest to get an even all over color.

Are you totally white at the root? Or is it peppered? This color deposits only, so if you don’t have light hair already, it’s not going to do much. Btw- I did hair 10 yrs. I actually bought the slate & titanium today bc I’m tired of fighting the grey but I’m not ready to commit to perm silver. I’m a level 9-10(very blonde. I’m planning to use the slate then color melt w/the titanium.

Sorry, meant to say this will not go green bc it is not a ash base. Ash can turn you green. Just look at a color wheel(google) & you can see which colors cancel each other out, etc.
I love this color!
You can get various shades of TITANIUM, light-dark and every tone in between IF a DEVELOPER is used at formulation.
Definitely NO conditioner should be in a color formula. 🤦🏼♀️
I think I’ll try this on my naturally turned platinum hair. As a young at heart 65 year old I want to hear “ you don’t look a day over 50” and add some darker grey to look as though I’ve only begun to turn grey vs I’ve arrived!
Do you suggest I prelighten my already platinum to enhance the color titanium or simply apply to my natural locks? It’s funny I never thought “you don’t look a day over 50” as a compliment but here I am.
