It’s not just us, it’s a saying and let’s be honest there has to be a reason and we are here to explain it in the easiest way we know how so listen up!
Actually it’s more like gold, not the expensive one more like the imitation one. When your hair is dark it has the most red ( warm ) pigment, more than light brown hair. When you think about the color off your dreams is it yellow or gold? I doubt it, no one intentionally wants to look that bad 🙊
The problem is when your color is being done, it has been not lightened enough, the gold pigment needs to be removed in this process or no matter what you do it will show it’s ugly head if not immediately or in a week or so.
Now the second biggest issue is how the end result is finished off, if it’s toned again with a light color ( because the hairstylist just realised it wasn’t light enough and trying to fix it the wrong way)
Without getting into the technicalities of hair coloring understand a toner the way a lot of salons do then are a permanent color so by putting it on your entire head with lighten it all up making the hair that wants coloured gold and yellow.
Now this is not the only reason but considering the amount of people we see it’s the cause in 95% of the cases.
Don’t risk it and only trust a professional salon. There is a reason we are named the best colorists in India
