" #MyDentity Hair Color by Guy Tang + Kenra - SILVERS, PASTELS, METALLIC


New guy tang colors are in, includes his permanent, demi, in pastels & metallic and his direct dye ( which will not shampoo-out like Burst & Blast - fyi). 

I will run tests on the colors I feel most of you are interested in, I have tested the Demi-Permanent Silver Smoke + 10 volume - processed for 50 minutes on Level 12 and Level 9 Blonde ( must be applied to LIGHT LIGHT Blonde hair for the best effect). The Silver is actually a nice true SILVER. Its dark but you want these colors to begin dark so they last - never shampoo the first day ( do this with all hair color to get the best life out of the application! .......always wait minimum 48 hours before shampooing AFTER a hair color Re-Touch !

We will continue to send 1 pair of surgical gloves + 2 - 1oz. measure cups w/ all hair color orders. This year you may ALSO request a 1/2 oz. free sample of barrier cream with your hair color order. Barrier Cream is what Hair Colorists apply around your entire hair line to keep color from staining skin as color processes. Apply around hair line, not touching hair.... in a circular motion to give it a "natural" look. You must REQUEST the Barrier cream ( in the "NOTES" section). Normally the only people who require it are: Level 8  & darker, but there are no restrictions, just ask !

Kenra's Color Lines (together) are gigantic,
Therefore we have 2 pages of them - if there is a color you know they have but don't see listed - just purchase any color and in the NOTES box - just ask for the exact color you want and we will get you that color as we can get any color they make in 1 day.

I tested the Silvers and Violets.... I love 8SM, it comes out very very silver and metallic-like. . But if you have lightened hair I suggest using 8SM with 13Volume for the best Silver Metallic you will ever see! There are some strand tests on the Blog just put that name in the Search Bar for the Post.

I do love these new colors, no one likes glitter and shine and all "that" more than me.... I grew up in the 70's and that shit just never leaves you....its in my DNA, I swear. Also is my penchant for honesty......I find that is what brings and keeps all of you here. I do not tell you what you want to hear, I tell you the truth, as hard as it is for me to do many times.....like I said, the thought of "metallic Hair" just Rev's my juices and I just crack a gigantic smile....

So, I tested 3 of these.....and that is not something I take lightly either as when I test these colors I use a TEENY TINY bit of color and the entire rest of the tube goes to waste, it truly is a shame.....but it just has to be done. These companies just will not be honest, and if I have to be the only one out here testing these products, and giving you the honest feedback, well then that is what I will do. So my ending results were:

I LOVE the Demi-Permanent Metallic line for toning Blonde hair, and of course on platinum is best. The 8SM and the 7SM are great for the Root area and the 10SM for the lengths. But what I don't want you to think is that these beautiful metallic's will last 6 weeks - because they won't. They look fantastic for a shorter period of time than your normal Permanent or Demi-Permanent line will. That is just what happens when they come up with a "new" pigment that they have not worked on for "longevity" - to date. I'm sure that will come and with some of you it will last longer than on others - so it is very hard to say the exact Length of brightness.

You can mix the Demi line and the Permanent line with other colors to come up with "metallic Rose" + "metallic Denim" + Metallic Purple and so on..............I am working on some strand tests for you, so you can see how beautiful they are. I wish to God that I could do hair again so I could show you on U-TUBE or SnapChat.....but my health just does not let that happen for me - for which - I apologize for.

Do you know that about 60 % of our customers are Crib Colorists and the other 40% are Hair Stylists ! Yep, hair stylists looking for honest education, testing and guidance......

VIOLET/Silver METALLIC

Demi-Permanent & permanent Hair Color !

Kenra Has now mastered the VIOLET METALLIC pigment and its all coming out with 3 shades which are amazing.... 3 Levels of Violet Metallic

So I am a little early and at this point I can only get the Demi type of all 3 Violet Metallica, which to my eye was the best ( ALTHOUGH THEY TELL ME THEY ALL ROCK.!) 

CHI now has a Liquid SILVER Iridescent....CHI Ionic Shine Shades is a versatile liquid color line that can be used as a stand alone coloring system or in conjunction with CHI Ionic Permanent Shine Hair Color. Easy to mix and apply liquid formula features PDS coloring system that can be used for Permanent, Demi-Permanent and Semi-Permanent color formulations. CHI shine shades offers the ability to tone, correct, and refresh all color tones, perfect for maximizing color services in the salon.

  • 10S - Extra-Light SILVER Blonde
  • 11-I - Extra Light Iridescent Light Plus
  • 8S - Medium SILVER Blonde
  • 9L - Light Iridescent Blonde
  • 9S - Light SILVER Blonde


65 Color Shade System..........here we've brought the beautiful SILVER 
- 59 Color Shades
- 5 Additives - intensify or neutralize tones
- 1 Clear - adds shine for touch ups or full color application 

 

Remember we have SILVER in BURST & BOOST Color enhancing shampoo & Conditioners. If you have light blonde hair BURST in Silver Bullet..........is how you can begin the color.............. apply on dry/damp hair evenly - comb thru thoroughly apply plastic cap and apply travel BONNET hair dryer for 30 minutes.......... cool for 30 minutes. That's a great start.

Here is a PLAN B that is as GOOD or better than KENRA, it lasts a lot longer, especially if used with Boost & Burst... ! ! !

Use Color Touch in 7/89 - it is Silver Pearl Ash, it has little metallic flecks in it  for 3 different lightness' of Silver......... I have done a DEMO with 7/89 + 2/0 - this equals adding Black and white which equals = SILVER ! ! .

These were my 3 formula's with photos coming:

  1. 7/89 (10 grams) + 13Volume ....................for the lightest Silver
  2. 7/89 (10 Grams) + 2/0(1/2 Gram) + 6 Volume.............for Medium silver
  3. 7/.89 (10 Grams) + 2/0(1Gram) + 6Volume...............for Dark Silver (you most likely will want to start with a lot more than19 Grams so alter accordingly - then if you want the complete Metallic look - spray lightly with Silver metallic spray (u can spay in bowl and use paint brush to paint on)

SILVER hair has become bigger and bigger, and when I was doing hair a 'few years back' . . . . I used to collect silver hair color in any and all brands that I could find...I used to pride myself on how many different Silvers I carried and had the option to use. I turned out the hottest Silver hair in L.A.! Guess what I am on the trail again as I see my beloved Silver hair is still popular and still on the rise .....which thrills me to offer the great choices that I have now and will continue to acquire...... from every brand......... I can find !

Be sure to pay attention to the weight + what level each of them are - I have added the 3 developers (6V.+ 10V.,+13V.) I find work the best for Toners/ Demi-Permanents and 20 Volume for those that  are Permanent.

Silver is one of the colors I feel should have been in the normal color chart of every line a long time ago.. Once you have seen it on hair everyone falls in love with it. They can be used as Toners or as color....they come in Demi-Permanent and semi-permanent...and the way to really keep them refreshed is by using Silver BURST, or if you can swing it both BOOST & BURST!

With Toners and/or Demi-Permanent Colors you need developer and I have 4 I choose from:

  • 5 Volume
  • 6 Volume,
  • 10 Volume &
  • 13 Volume

KENRA SILVER METALLIC COLOR:

  • 7SM - this is a Level SEVEN Silver Metallic
  • 8SM - A Level 8 Silver Metallic....there is a post with some Strand Tests to help you with for the results you are looking for...
  • 10SM - Then the lightest of them all a Level 10 Silver metallic

Great for a temporary flash of color for a birthday, Holiday, Wedding, or just a crazy night out with friends

I've brought all of the items we have for Silver hair into one page , the more you use the longer lasting your silver will be. Silver fades fast so its high maintenance, I'm not going to lie. It also is beautiful and men love it !
